apologies for resurrecting an old post.
I managed to find the code etc and the bluetooth started working again.
However, it has gone again and no amount of pulling fuses will make it work.
I took it to my Ford Dealer and they pronounced the bluetooth module dead. They said they tried plugging in a new module and that worked fine.
They now want £360 for the new module plus fitting! This seems very steep to me so I want to look at other options.
I see there are a number of cheap chinese stereos on eBay that seem to be a straight swap if you have the CD player. Has anyone tried one of these?
Of course I don't have the CD player and my Climate Controls are in the stereo. So if I went down the route of changing the stereo, how would I access my climate control?
Also does anyone have the model numbers for the stereo and the bluetooth module that I have please? I can't seem to find them anywhere!
The Chinese stereos are utter crap.
If you search the smax owners club forum you will find so many tales of woe -including some having caught fire.
You can get 2nd hand Bluetooth modules from ebay & scrap yards for about £80.
Guys, still not got this working!
Tried to find the module to look at the serial number.
Any clues as to where it is or how to get it out. I can't locate it at all!!
Have a look on the s-max owners forum. There are lots of posts & how-to's on there about Bluetooth modules, how to identify which one is right for your car & how to replace them.
The module number you need is 7S7T-19G488-AE is the same one as the mondeo
Hi there and thanks for this.
Are you absolutely sure about this? I finally got the glovebox out last night and the module had written on it: Nokia Type RX-2C 6M2T 19G488 AF
Mine is a 2006 Titanium X S-Max.
Do you think the 7S7T one will be compatible?
Darn it I signed off on Friday at 12 and have only just seen this (why don't I get email notifications - it is set to send me emails!)
I bought one on Sat morning from the 'Bay for £80!
I guess I need to stick with that one for now. I will let you know if it doesn't arrive or something.
Thanks for the offer though I would have snapped your hand off if I had seen it in time!
Received my new (second-hand) BT module from the 'Bay yesterday.
Today I have fitted it. It is blooming awkward to get to! Couldn't actually get the screw undone on the old one. So I have just unplugged it and left it there. I then plugged in the new one and put the glovebox all back in again.
It is now all working fine!
I also bought a little bluetooth receiver and plugged it in to my Aux line in port. Apparently the iPhone (5S) can be connected to both BT devices at the same time. It then plays music through the little receiver (through the stereo) and then switches over to the official BT module to take a call.
Works really well! The little BT receiver was £15 well spent!
