Shut the car off one night everything working fine. When I started it the next morning neither the clock or radio/cd player/ would work. Everything was completely dead. The clock said 10:53 and it still reads 10:53 twelve hours later, I pushed every button on the control panel and still nothing. Since this is the memorial day weekend I have not been able to take the car in but will post results when available.

Driving down the hiway, loud thump.Throught I ran over something, pulled over, checked car ok. Never turned car off, but no sound out of speakers.Took it to a Lincoln dealer, tech said the audio module is bad.He had seen it in 2 other Lincoln's. He disconneted battery, works for now. He said the module has to be replaced.
Same loud pop at start up and then no sound from speakers

When I use SYNC to make calls to people, everyone says it sounds like I'm in a hole, or sound far away. I don't know where the voice mic is located or I would project my voice in that direction. I have heard other people call me from their SYNC vehicles and their voice sounds real clear. Any suggestions?

Playing but no sound. Not fixed. Turning the ignition off and restarting will bring system back. I think that is a simple fix and not the cure all.
there is no audio. will come on for 20 min. sometomes.
