The radio says Mustang

Good afternoon guys.

My radio didn't work this morning and it just shows Mustang. All the buttons have no response when I press them. I mean The buttons related to radio. AC works good.
And how could I deal with this?
Thank you!

try pulling the radio fuse in your passenger kick panel and leave it out for a few min.. your radio is supplied with power when the car if off so maybe it had a glitch and just needs a hard reset.

You have to give longer that 15 minutes for a response, especially on a Saturday!!!

You might want to locate the radio fuse, pull it, wait a few seconds, then plug it back in to see if that "resets" the radio.

I have a 2011 v6 coupe and mine did the same after I tried to test my friends stereo on mine to c if he's worked becasue it said mustang (from a 2010 ) so mine mest up . And I was so freaked out ! But today I checked the manual and the kick panel fuse box and the radio fuse is 39 . It was blown . Didn't have a 20 so I put a 10 to test it and boom it worked !

unplug your negative terminal for 5mins and leave your lights on to restart everything. That honestly fixes a lot of problems I've learned lol

Duplicating my post from the other thread so those who land here get the same info...

OK, so after nearly 2 years of fighting this problem, I think I finally have figured it out (though Ford continues to say it's not a problem and that they can't diagnose it, or it's because something was done to modify the stereo... pick your set of excuses). So, enough crabbing and on with what's going on:

In it's infinite wisdom (insert sarcasm), Ford has left the power outlets to be on even when the car is turned off. Now this means that ANY item you leave plugged in is going to drain the battery (even a simple USB power adapter has a continual drain). What causes the MUSTANG and non-working radio to start is a draw on the battery beyond a certain level (some here mentioned 4 hours of a GPS, I've had it after several days parked with just a USB power adapter plugged in).

Now the fun begins because, best as I can figure it, there is a reset routine that requires a certain voltage to be maintained for a certain time and then suddenly everything starts working. First, I'd suggest the attempts above at disconnecting the battery for 10-15 min (negative first), and then be sure fuses 39 and 3 are good. If this doesn't work (like it didn't for me), on to the next step.

Sometimes just driving at highway speeds for 60-120 min will fix it. More reliably I've found that giving the battery a trickle charge over night, then driving at highway speeds for 60-120 min is the most reliable (unfortunately just the charging isn't enough to do the reset).

Yes this is at total PITA and such a design fail in my opinion, but it's better than the $600+ alternative of replacing the stereo (yes the dealer will try to sell you a new one, saying that's the problem). Next step for me is to change the wiring to the outlet I use for USB power so that it turns off with the ignition (there's a reason this worked so well starting from Henry Ford's first car).

OK, a bit of griping but hopefully some good info that all those dealing with this can use to avoid big expenses in the future. Best of luck!
