Hi,

I just got a 2010 Focus with the standard 6000CD, but I'm having a problem with it - Whenever my iPod is plugged in to the AUX port, there is horrible static hissing noise. Also, I've tested it using a cable that lets me disconnect the right and left channels independently, and with the focus even if I unplug one of the channels, sound comes out of both sides (right + left speakers). I tried it in a Fiesta with the older style 6000CD and disconnecting either channel means that no sounds comes from that side of the car.

I am assuming that my problem is caused by a short somewhere... does anyone have any idea? The car has warranty, but it is quite far to the nearest garage and a lot of hassle. Do all focuses do this? or is it just mine?

Thanks!
Lenny

Thanks, I've given it a shot and I still have the same problem!

I'm going to use a multimeter to test if there is definitely a short later on. Do you know how easy it is to get the AUX port out if there is one? Do I need to take the glovebox out?

Thanks.
