      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

    Fiesta 2008
  1. Hi. I'm having major trouble when playing MP3-CD's in my new fiesta (new shape). The cd's always skip and pause during the songs, normal audio cd's work fine. I've been through about 50 cds now, from 6 different brands, burning at different speeds, using different burners, encoding the mp3s at different bitrates. I've exhausted every option to get the thing working. I've taken it into my local ford garage (bristol street) to be checked over 5 times now and they say they can't find anything wrong with it, and even if they did i would have to pay for a replacement because i'm using cd-r's and not pressed cd's......... Its impossible to find a pressed cd with mp3 songs on it that isn't an audio book..... The CD's play fine in my clarion unit in my old KA..... Is there a service menu on the car that lets you tweak settings? Do you think ford will help me at all as the car is in warranty? Any help would be much appreciated. I love my new car, but the stereo problems have taken the sheen off it. Can anybody else try and replicate my problem to see if its a problem on all new fiestas.
