The system is awesome by the way. Trying not to crash and play at the same time

I have a feeling this is a different problem otherwise why would it have been fixed so quickly with the new model '10s?

Your noise is exactly what we have described above? You can hear AM/FM leaking through on other inputs? You can VERY clearly hear the noise when sitting upright in the drivers seat? The noise volume doesn't change when you raise the radio volume?

Is this issue exclusive to '10s?

I’m talking about what the OP said, “low volume continuous static like noise that comes from the system”. Noticeable with the volume off or when there is no sound being played or broadcasted. My 07 and 09 has the problem as well as other Mustangs I checked at the dealer.

The headunit issue has been fixed in the Job2 and later 2010 Mustangs.

Is there a way to verify whether you have the Job 2? I only saw a way to (perhaps) verify that you had a Job 1? Did anyone with a Job 2 run that process and verify that the code is different?

If you can check out the window sticker (stock vehicle) or 'print' your window sticker (ordered vehicle), it should be on that.

Just confirmed with mine. AR3T-19C 158-AL. Same static/hissing sound from the speakers at no volume to very little. My GT has a build date of August to compare with others. I just called the dealer and spoke with my salesman. He checked one of the new GT's on the showroom with the Shaker 500 and it had the same static/hissing.

Still waiting for Ford to issue a TSB. Will keep everyone posted.

Thanks FE! My local dealer called me two days ago and said "Ford wants to re-program the audio control module". I'll wait a little longer as I think a re-program may be a waste of time

It might help. Remember, the issue is Cross-Talk. If it's an underlying hardware issue, a re-flash isn't going to fix it (but you'll have the latest firmware). If it's an underlying software issue, it will fix it. All I know is that it's been "fixed" by Clarion for the Job2 ACMs, but if the only difference is a software flash, that might be the most efficient way of fixing it. Recall from our emails that the radio engineer said to replace the ACM with a Job2 one, but if the only difference is a firmware load (and a sticker), you might be better off this way.

The real question is "who is 'Ford' in this case?" Your dealership? Or someone from Dearborn?

For two weeks the service department guy I was working with said he was waiting for a call back. A call back from who? No idea. I'll call him tomorrow and try to get more information.

Hi, I'm new to the forum... actually, I've been visiting this forum for a while, but never registered until now.

I too have the static noise in my Shaker 500. For some reason I had just noticed it in the past couple of days. I don't suppose anyone found out what to do to get rid of it? Any help would be great. It is quite annoying. Thanks!

So if you have read this thread, you know what we all know:

Apparently all 2010 Mustangs with the Shaker 500, and no nav package, have this noise. There is a report that Clarion Job2 ACM's don't make the noise. Whether new cars coming off the line today have this new Job2 ACM is unknown. (Or if they do, when the change was made is unknown.)

KEY FOR US IS: Apparently NOBODY has been fixed yet.

There are two possible fixes.
1. A software update.
2. Replace the ACM with a Job2 ACM.

I don't know of any service department even offering to do either fix except for possibly AJ_68's service department.
