Default Radio, backup camera stopped working

I have a 2014 Escape. About a week ago, the speakers made a terribly loud sound and since then, the radio, Sync and backup camera don't work. I can't get an appointment at the dealership until late August. Does anyone know what this could be? And, more importantly, is this a sign of more electrical-related issues to come?

I can't tell you what is up the road as far as electronic problems, but I can tell you, a lot of the electronics in vehicles today are , well,,,,,,,not top quality and most likely due to the cost factor.
It does sound like a voltage spike occurred and the electronics were affected.Sometimes protective "measures" are incorporated in the construction, but there is always the unexpected. AND,,,,,,,,,the more items installed , the greater the chance of , well just problems.

Does your vehicle have anything you use or have added on like remote start (add on) or charging port gizmos.

I’d guess the audio unit or APIM module
