  1. So probably time for a new battery?
  2. Battery is as old as the car, and I've tested leaving lights, aircon and radio on before a start and it seemed fine, ivd been filming all my starts over the passed 2 days, this is the worst, most still start normally or have a few seconds of stuttering Not for a voltage tester and my one mechanic mate has selfishly gone on his honeymoon!
  3. Hi guys, first post in a while looking for advice. Basically out of nowhere my fiesta has started having starting problems. Basically I got in my car about 3 weeks ago and it really spluttered all the dials flashed and it probably took about 5 seconds to turn over. It was fine again for a week then last week I called at the shop near my house on my way home from work got back in and it would turn. I tried for a couple of minutes but nothing, it started to sound like the starter was runnt out of juice, called my road side assistance and walked home, by the time they got out and tried it turned straight away. The guy said the starter probably just got "stuck" and that it would be fine. Since then I've had a couple of times where itx seemed like it's struggling but turns over, I've noticed that when it happens, the display flickers, then changes to milage mode, the radio goes off and the clima control goes onto auto and turns the aircon on. I'm due a service and mot next month so just looking for some advice really. Does about 10k a year full service history at a ford dealer.
  4. Hrm so it must be software/firmware then, I find it really odd! Shame ford haven't done an update for it
  5. Really? That sucks, what does a USB port have to do with Bluetooth audio, surely its all in the ford software? Good job ford :/ would have thought the titanium would definitely have it
  6. Hi all, I'm new here so forgive me if this is somewhere on the forum already! Basically I'm wondering how I get bluetooth audio to work, I use bt for my phone and that works fine but I've never worked out how to use it to play music. I can select audio output on my phone and select ford audio, and under the audio options on the ford menu there's a section for Bluetooth, but I can't work out how to do playback? I only have a line in for aux no USB, so its an audio cable only for me at the moment which is less than ideal. Any help would be great Thanks in advance
