Radio frequencies: AM and FM frequencies are established by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and the Canadian Radio and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC). Those frequencies are:

AM: 530, 540Ц1700, 1710 kHz
FM: 87.7, 87.9Ц107.7, 107.9 MHz

Radio reception factors: There are three factors that can affect radio reception:

Х Distance/strength: The further you travel from a station, the weaker the signal and the weaker the reception.

Х Terrain: Hills, mountains, tall buildings, power lines, electric fences, traffic lights and thunderstorms can interfere with your reception.

Х Station overload: When you pass a broadcast tower, a stronger signal may overtake a weaker one and play while the weak station frequency is displayed.

CD/CD player care:

Do:

Х Handle discs by their edges only. Never touch the playing surface.

Х Inspect discs before playing. Clean only with an approved CD cleaner and wipe from the center out.

DonТt:

Х Expose discs to direct sunlight or heat sources for extended periods of time.

Х Clean using a circular motion.

CD units are designed to play commercially pressed 4.75 in (12 cm) audio compact discs only. Due to technical incompatibility, certain recordable and re-recordable compact discs may not function correctly when used in Ford CD players. Dirty, warped or damaged CDs, irregular shaped CDs, CDs with a scratch protection film attached, and CDs with homemade paper (adhesive) labels should not be inserted into the CD player. The label may peel and cause the CD to become jammed. It is recommended that homemade CDs be identified with permanent felt tip marker rather than adhesive labels. Ballpoint pens may damage CDs. Please contact your authorized dealer for further information.

Audio system warranty and service: Refer to the Warranty Guide/Customer Information Guide for audio system warranty information. If service is necessary, see your dealer or qualified technician.
