Why has the radio stopped working and my speakers are making loud random static noises even when the car is off?

Asked by Apr 25, 2017 at 12:45 PM about the 2012 Ford Focus SEL

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have 2012 Ford Focus SEL. Check engine light was already on for a
Canister purge valve, and I'm about to replace that. I'm not sure if that has
anything to do with it, but then I got a flat tire on the front passenger side.
Soon after the flat tire (10-15 minutes) my speakers started making noises,
even with the volume down or off, and even when the car is off. The next
day, the radio stops working, but the random loud statics are still occurring.
What is causing this?

It may be a bad audio amplifier.

100s of other ford focus 's have the same problem and noone knows what to do about it even the dealers dont know what it is.The factory dont want to deal with it because they would have to recall every ford for the last five years $$$$
