It's really time to change out the radio, Ford's are know to have radio's that don't last that long...


Sometimes the logic chip gets messed up in the radio itself, you can try disconnecting the radio fuses and the KAM fuses and let it set for a few minutes and then put the fuses back and see if that corrects the problem, or if you want to reset the complete vehicle you can disconnect a battery cable and wait the same amount of time then reconnect it, performing this procedure can set off the vehicles alarm so make sure you know how to turn it off before performing said procedure.
