2010 Ford Fusion radio static


Asked by Oct 26, 2015 at 11:37 AM about the 2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I took the car to the dealership due to an advance trac tight on.  they ended up changing the battery.  Now the radio is all static and it gets worse around metal.  I took it back and they said it had a bad amplifier but could not tell me whether it was sound or signal.  It works just fine on CD or jukebox so does not sound like a sound amplifier to me.  Anyone had this issue?

They did a bad job of connecting the wires tight... if you hit a bump does it get worse? I would check the Negative (Black wire) where it's attached to the engine. Make sure both Red and Black are tight at the battery connection and then ask them why there is no noise when the engines not running ... The radio uses the same amplifier so how come no noise?

If not what tom said,check the antenna,some time low voltage from a bad battery will affect the antenna,meaning the old bad battery may have done it.


Radio worked fine when I took it in but battery could have done it. they changed it saying the only thing they could find wrong with it was a low batter and they suspect that trigger the advance trac light. Thanks for the info I will look into the antenna. That makes a lot more sense than an sound amplifier.
