Common Issues with 2009-2016 Ford Radio (ACM) and How We Can Help:

  1. Flashing Clock / Blinking Time; A flashing or blinking clock is a common issue in many Ford radios. This problem is often caused by a faulty ACM. Our skilled technicians at Automotive Circuit Solutions can quickly diagnose and repair this issue, restoring your clock to normal function.

Our technicians can thoroughly inspect your vehicle's radio, identify the problem, and provide the necessary repair to get your radio back up and running.

  4. Loud Popping Noise; A loud popping noise can occur in Ford radios for several reasons, including a poor speaker connection, a damaged speaker, or a faulty ACM.

Why Choose Repair Over Replacement

Choosing to repair your Ford ACM instead of replacing it can offer several benefits:

  1. Cost Savings: Replacing your entire ACM can be an expensive endeavor, with new units costing hundreds or even thousands of dollars. By opting for a repair from Automotive Circuit Solutions, you can save a significant amount of money. Our repair services are typically a fraction of the cost of a new unit, allowing you to keep more of your hard-earned cash in your pocket.

  2. Environmental Responsibility: Repairing your existing ACM is a more environmentally friendly option than replacing it. By choosing to repair, you help reduce waste generated by disposing of old units and manufacturing new ones. This choice contributes to a greener and more sustainable future for our planet.

  3. Compatibility: By repairing your current ACM, you ensure that it remains compatible with your vehicle's existing features and settings. A replacement unit may require additional programming or adjustments, which can be time-consuming and costly. With a repair, you can trust that your ACM will continue to function seamlessly with your vehicle.
