  1. new spare key needed for 2014 fiesta zetec

    Yeah you'll need to get a proper Ford one thought a main dealer that's matched to your car. The fob contains the immobiliser electronics so without this it won't start. Bad news is there are very, and I mean very, expensive
  2. Headlights

    Ditto, I have these and they are very bright and pretty white. I believe that Philips ones are a bit whiter but not quite so bright.
  3. USB bad media

    when you say you re-downloaded them? where did you download them from? If its a legit site then they may be DRM (Digital Rights Management) protected in which case they won't play other than the authorised device. If thats not the case are they MP3 format? can you try the stick on another car or another PC?
  4. Updating the Stereo

    If you change the head unit, which I am not sure if its the same connections, you would also need to change the Arial as, I believe, DAB uses a different type of Ariel to FM.
  5. My new red edition

    On Ebay not that expensive. You can also get them at Chinese sites like Alixpress but they take months to arrive.
  6. Re-mapping Red edition?

    that's for the 125 engine, will that still work on the 140?
  7. My new red edition

    Other models in the range come with Ambient lighting which includes a red LED strip just above the glove box, there is a narrow strip that it clips into. I did this with my Red Edition and its amazing the difference it makes. You need 2 parts, the strip itself and the LED attachment. the LED part is about £5 the strip is more expensive, best part of £50. I got mine on Ebay used for £20.. Very simple to fit as well :). Other things would be the "S" badges front and rear and upgrade the bulbs to better/whiter ones and also change the indicator bulbs to silver ones. The idea about changing the footwell bulbs to red ones is nice, again I did this and it looks lovely at night. I had problems with LEDs though so eventually went for normal bulbs which I think are just right.
  8. 3cycl eco boost engine rattle/response from ford

    Hope I'm no tempting fate but my Red Edition doesn't do it, or at least I've never noticed anything, and believe me if it was there I'd notice it lol.
  9. Sat Nav for red edition?

    Just checked, the standard screen is 4.2" while the one for the Nav system is 5"
  10. Sat Nav for red edition?

    Is it not only available on the Sony unit?
  11. LED DRLs

    I seem to remember reading on here that the connections are different. Some reports are that you need to get the garage update the ecu software to get them to work while others suggest they don't work at all. I'd certainly be very careful buying them as they are not cheap £300+ each side I think.
  12. Reset of DAB radio

    No DAB + is a totally new codec which gives better sound quality. What has happened recently is more frequencies that were used for analogue TV have been reassigned for DAB so there are now more frequencies available, this allows for more channels to be opened up. However its still the same old DAB no change in quality. DAB + is not backwards compatible so current radios wouldn't work with it.
  13. Reset of DAB radio

    I just hit the scan button and it rescanned the channels
  14. 16 st2

    Gees turn down the brightness you nearly blinded me
  15. New Fiesta

    So I 'm hearing about a new Fiesta next year, When are we likely to hear the rumours and see some test drive photos etc?
