What are the chances that my problem is the amplifier? Which is accessed in the right rear luggage area - behind a large piece of plastic - a local tech shop suggested this might be the problem - how do I check it. I have 250,000 miles on the car I do not want to put in a new sound system.

That sounds like the amp is fried or the fuse to the amp is. I'm not sure where its located but there is usually a fuse right on the amp its self.
#95 of 103 no radio after battery replacement

I have read earlier post where others have had radio, door lock and interior lights not working after replacing the battery. I just had the same problem and just in case it happens to someone else here is fix: My Escape is a 2003, it has two fuse panels, one under the hood and one under the dash on the left kick panel. That is where I found a fuse called the "room" it is a 10 amp and is at the bottom right side (looking at the fuses) It is next to a relay, very hard to see but its there. I replaced this fuse, fixed the problem. Thanks to other post on this web site.

This problem is still there and I have talked to Ford and a couple of stereo installation shops and they don't know what is causing this issue. anyone else have any ideas?

I have a 2006 Limited with the same problem. If I tap the display sharply, in comes on for for a while then shuts down again.
I just finished pulling the radio and taking taking the front off. Once the lens is off, you can see the digital display unit. It would appear that there is a loose connection in the top right corner of the display. There is a silvery mark on the inside of the glass similar to what you see on a blown fuse.
I found your complaint while googling the code number on the P.C. board, with no luck.
May somebody knows if a new board is available, otherwise I guess we'll both be on e-bay looking for new radios.
#100 of 103 2002 Ford Escape CD player

The 6 CD exchanger did not work when I bought the truck. I've tried fixing it, but it doesn't work. How do I find a single CD player that will work with the radio?

I know this is a year old issue. But I just saw this. There is probably a moisture settlement on the SJB and you MAY have to replace the sJB. After replacing the SJB you will have to to a GEM self test which requires a code scanner. You should then fix and reset the problems suggested by the code. This should help.
