  1. Tried leaving the fuse out and as for banging done it as hard as i can....ive spoke to local ford dealer who i had to explain to have a repair centre for radio's as they had never heard of the problem before?! They need the part number of the stereo despite me supplying the model, unit type, serial no and keycode..any ideas?
  2. Newbie here....as above really. 2008 prefacelift 1.25 zetec climate fiesta with the 6000cd single cd. Since two days ago started to display phone on display....now worse and stuck leaving unit useless. Read on forums it's likely to be the circuit board as we don't have a phone kit installed. Ford want £450 for a new one. Can anyone help with any suggestions. Tried new fuse, reset it using code. Same problem. I've read about ford repair program in Birmingham. Is it worth it? I've seen used units on eBay not in as good as nick as ours which is mint....any advice all appreciated Thanks
  3. Hi guys New to here so bear with me... I have two issues that im hoping this forum can help me with as ive read lots of useful stuff on here. Own a 2008 1.25 previous model Zetec Climate. 1. This week the radio (Ford 6000CD) has had a problem. The display very intermitently but now more frequent shows "Phone". The car has been owned by us since new and has no phone connection. The radio loses all use of it buttons when it switches to "phone" except the volume and bass/treble button. Eventually the radio might start working. Ive contacted local dealers who all state theyve never heard of the problem. Ive researched tne internet and even found a youtube video of someone else's car with the same problem if it helps. From what ive read im assuming the radio is short circuiting somewhere inside the unit? Ive been quoted £415 plus vat plus fitting from dealers for a replacement which we cant afford. Does anyone know is it fixable or should i start to look on ebay and the like for a replacement? Anyone else had this problem and how do you fix it? Or not?! 2. Second issue which has been dogging the car for ages...the electric adjustable mirrors work fine, the problem lies in that the heating element to BOTH mirrors dont work. Its been like this for a while and everytime i took it to the dealers they keep saying there is power the mirrors (i know that myself as they turn the glass!) but they cant see any issues with the heaters....and make sure i use the rear heater to activate them. I know all that and today sat for 5 minutes with condensation on the mirrors. Never budged it not one bit....tried the fuse its fine. Any other ideas of anyone else had this with BOTH mirrors? How did you fix it? Any help would be appreciated! Thanks
