What is a audio control module???

I have a 2014 GT. Put a CD (the first one!) in the player. Plays fine but will not eject. Under warranty so I took it to my dealer. Tech said it needs an audio control module. What the heck is that. Guess I should of asked him but didn't think about it at the time.

It's the part of the stereo that your CD goes into. The radio, cd, etc. Is all built into that box. Also controls audio features on your car such as steering wheel controls and what not. I believe they're in the $50 range on ebay.

The audio control module tells the car what features it has such as sync steering wheel control and what not. The ACM (Audio Control Module) is computer code that is programmed by a Ford Dealership. The program and parts are stored inside the Head Unit of the Mustang, so my guess is in saying you needed a new ACM he meant it needed to be reflashed or you needed a new head unit.

here is a link for a shaker 500 head unit on eBay:

After you get one and have one installed you have to have Ford reprogram everything that your vehicle has and needs. Usually about a hour of labor, some will only charge half hour since it takes about 15 minutes. It's a very easy repair that can be installed in your driveway and then 15 minutes at a Ford Dealership.

Warranty this. It's a 2014 so, it's still under B2B.

Agreed not sure why the tech is saying you need something else.
