08 Escape radio and clock display not working

The LED display in the center of the dash on my daughter's 08 Mariner (Escape) stopped working. We bought the car used a little over a year ago, there wasn't a display for the compass like my wife's 08 Escape. I pretty much just assumed being a different model it didn't have it. Now the display as completely stopped working, no radio or clock. I've checked all the fuses, I'm thinking pretty much the LED display is shot. Before I go to the junk yard, anything stupid to check first and what am I up against in changing it? TIA

Checking fuses 39 and 28 will cover the base radio and 39,28,38 and 14 for premium. Just make sure with a test light the fuses check out. Fords are prone for head unit failures as well as the premium amps causing parasitic drains.

Itís pretty much a base model but I did go through all those fuses. Thanks.

Our 2013 Focus had the head end crap out at about 60k miles. Apparently the head end they use in many of the models fail. There are reports of Focus, Fiesta, F150 and Fusion to name a few that used the same or same type of base model. I replaced it with a modern Sony. The bezel to make it look factory was half the price of the radio.

< $200 will buy a decent hands free unit. Thats the way to go when the factory unit takes a dump.

The FDIM is fed by fuse F14 but gets its input from FCIM and ACM,Looks like yours is WITHOUT Nav or sat radio. Fuse 28 and 39 run the ACM (RADIO) and 38 is for the subwoofer/amp --You don't have.

I drove my daughters 05 Mariner today (it has auto headlights) and happened to notice the radio display fade to black a couple times. I asked her if she's noticed that? she asked if the auto headlight were on?

Bad solder connections on display board, lots of videos on you tube on how to repair. Looks to be a common problem.
