I had to get the radio replaced to solve my popping radio noise. Cost was about $400. It's been about 2 years since then and still ok so I don't think the wires or speakers are the problem. More likely an internal issue.

You could have saved about $350 going with a used OEM... But hey... The main thing is you got the problem fixed

Hey everyone, new to this forum and I have the same ridiculous issue. Seeing as how everyone has already had this diagnosed, I am not going to waste $150 just to be told by Ford that I need a new ACM. I had to pull the fuse as the popping sounds would not stop as I was driving the car even with the radio is off.

Before I spend $200 at crutch field for a new head unit and all of the required dash kit/wiring that it comes with, this should fix the issue correct? I dont want to go the OEM route as I am sure this issue will just happen again in the future, so figured I would nip it in the bud. I was looking at a JVC KD-X255BT head unit. Sound like a good option? I am not trying to go for a great sound system, just want my radio back. Thank!!!

Welcome to the FACTION !!! … Like you, I was concerned about OEM dependability... But for me, the low out-of-pocket (from http://stores.ebay.com/discountoemradios/) along with plug/play and NO mods, made the OEM unit worth the risk... How much money you spend and where you spend it is up to you... Good luck !!!

Hey everyone, just wanted to give an update. New JVC headunit installed and I have my radio back! So if you run into this, just buy a new aftermarket radio and dash kit so it looks nice. And the new radio has built in bluetooth with handsfree calling so definitely an upgrade!

I have a 2012 Fiesta, 109k miles. We just started having these issues in the last 6 months or so. Scared the crap out of me when it popped the first time and again when it hit ear-bleeding static.

Does anyone have recommendations on what models or years of radios work? I don't want to buy someone's dud.
