|Code U2014 Ford Description

Digital signals are received by the satellite radio antenna and sent to the Audio Control Module (ACM) through the satellite radio antenna cable. The satellite receiver is internal to the ACM. When a satellite radio subscription is activated, the Electronic Serial Number (ESN) of the built-in satellite receiver is associated with the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN). As a result, the ACM cannot be swapped from one vehicle to another. If there is an open in the satellite radio antenna circuit, there is no satellite audio. The audio system display indicates a satellite antenna concern when the audio system is operated in satellite radio mode.
The primary source of vehicle location for the navigation system is the Audio Control Module (ACM) receiving the position signal through the Global Positioning System (GPS) antenna (integral to the satellite radio antenna). In addition, the ACM receives the navigation rolling wheel count signal from the Instrument Cluster (IC) (which gateways the signal from the ABS module). This secondary signal is used to calculate vehicle position when the GPS signal is lost. It also supports the adaptive learning function of the ACM, whereby the ACM can compensate for long-term differences between the GPS signal location and the actual distance traveled by the vehicle.
