Radio problems, frequency search
My brother lives in Norway, where he bought a new Ford Expedition a few years ago. Recently, the radio blacked out (display went black), and stayed like that for a couple of days, then came back to life. However, the radio did not function as before.
In Norway, radio channels can be found at both even and odd frequency numbers, e.g. 87.7, 87.8, 87.9 ... and the radio did use to search on both sets of frequencies.
After the radio came back to life, it did only search on odd frequency numbers, e.g. 87.7, 87.9, 88.1 ... which is the default behaviour for the radio in the US.
My brother has in vain asked the dealer for help, they don't know what is wrong or how to fix it. They say it is a special radio, and must be ordered through them for $3,500. (Yes, $3,500, not $350)
I believe the radio can be fixed without paying $3,500., but how. Is there a way to program the radio?
