Alternative Frequency (AF) not working after ACM swap

Post by jarosss » Fri Jul 06, 2018 7:45 pm

Hi,
I just changed ACM module (radio) from my US Mustang 2016 to the european model that supports DAB and TMC from Mondeo MK5.
I enabled DAB and TMC in my APIM.

I have problem with Alternative Frequency (AF). When it is disabled on radio settings everything works correctly.
When I enable it in radio settings I am not able to open any of the presets. Doesn't matter what preset I click it always plays the radio station found previosly by searching.
Example:
I search radio stations. Lets say I found and I am listening 101.2. When I click on any of my saved presets it always comes to 101.2. Then I serach for another radio station and lets say it founds 102.7. I click on presets and it goes to 102.7.

Any ideas what needs to be changed in APIM or ACM?

Thanks

Did You also remove sirius from 7D0 01 01 and setup Tuner region ?
factory Europe for Sync 2 is
7D0-01-01  4A6A 059A 305C 
for Sync 3 is
7D0-01-01  4A6A 059A 103C

Anyone knows what the problem is? Why does AF (Alternate Frequency) not work on the FM radio? When I am going from one city to another - the radio did not searches for alternate frequencies. In the AF settings it is turned on AUTO but I can not turn it off.
Or maybe AF must be switched to ON but not to AUTO?
Maybe somebody know which row in ACM or APIM is for AF?
