  1. Unfortunately not. I even took it to the Ford dealer for another issue and asked then to have a look at this at the same time and perform all the updates they could. They couldn't fix it and didn't know why. The grumpy man told me that I should not mess with updating the car myselfmyself! To which I replied, that the manual told me to do it and gave me instructions on how to do so. To which he said Food really shouldn't be doing that. I have done sold the car (the 2.3 litre petrol engine was a little thirsty and a killer on tax). Sorry I couldn't help more.
  2. Thanks tomtom70, I can still use and see the options for Bluetooth phone (calls, phone book etc.) however I no longer see the Bluetooth option in the CD/AUX menu? I will try resting the Bluetooth module tonight, just in case and let you know how it goes.
  3. Thanks for the replys. I have tried to update the NX to SP 5.3 and this updated, but did not bring back any bluetooth functionality. Interestingly there is a service menu on the NX that is accessed by holding the NAV and Menu buttons for a second and then when you let go it takes you there, to several tests and versions menu. I have also tried repairing, thanks for the suggestion. I guess it will be a trip to Ford and hefty wedge. Does anyone konw how much it would reoughly be?
  4. I have recently purchased and 09 SMax with the NX navigation system installed. I could not get it to recognise my phone (Samsung Galaxy S3), however reading throguh the manual, it suggested doing an update via ford-mobile-connectivity.co.uk. I did this and whilst it did not confirm it had completed and turned off about 20 minutes into it, it did display the bluetooth audio option. I then had an issue with where the guages did not work (even in diagnostic mode, but that is a whole other sotry) and to resolve this I disconnected the battery and whilst this resolved the gauge issue, the bluetooth audio option has now disappeared? I thought it may ahve just reset back to what it was before and needed me to run the update again, however when I try to apply the update it says update not required. Does anyone have any ideas what I can try?
  5. Thanks for all your help! In the end I disconnected the battery, put the + and - terminals together for a minute and left them disconnected for about 20 minutes, to make absolutely sure the power was drained. Plug them back in and did a self diagnostic test and it worked!
  6. My wife has also told me that the other counters do not move either. Come to think of it when I did the self diagnostic test on the instructions on YouTube I saw the counters all went to mac and down again, in garage sweep. When I did the test non of them moved. Does this mean a fuse or something else?
  7. It is a standard speedo. (convers+ dash). Thanks for the advice, I will have a quick look, but I guess a dodgy wire will need slightly more experience than I have. Do you have any pointers or places you suggest looking first?.
  8. Thanks for the Welcome and adive so far! The milage is increasing and their is no ABS light on the dash. So hopefully we can rule the ABS sensor out? What can I check next? Good tip on the sat nav :)
  9. Two weeks ago we purchased (privetly) an 09 plate SMax and have been loving it ever since. Last night however we got in it and I stated driving and noticed I was driving at 0 MPH, well at least that is what the Speedometer was saying :( . On our return trip it was also registering 0 MPH and has been ever since. What can I do to fix it? I have so far run the self diagnostic test and it has displayed the following DTC codes: C41668 C42268 C19900 Any help will be gratefully received!
