You must have a cell phone accessory feature on your radio, and it sounds like there is a problem with it. Looks like you need to visit your local Ford dealer because something is not right.

AnswerI would suggest pulling the fuse, or popping the radio out and unplugging it for say maybe 15 minutes - the idea being to reset the electronics. Kinda like "re-booting" it.

Just a wild guess... and cheaper than a visit to the Ford dealer.

See "Related Questions" below for specifics on the fuses and pulling the radio (which I would find easier than the fuse - just cause I've lots of experience popping Ford radios in and out)
