  1. Aux, Bluetooth And Voice Command Buttons Not Working

    Only one problem - havent got the USB part in the car :( Looks like its a trip to Ford at some point then!!
  2. Alloy Wheels!

    No problem! I know, its a bargain, but - if you look at my post - I have a small issue with my car at the moment and really need to get that sorted before I get them dipped :) Would be well worth doing though! I have to say the White alloys on a white fiesta does look very sexy! There is a white zetec s near me with those white alloys and 2 blue striped down the middle! Looks very nice! Do you mean in terms of insurance? As far as I know, changing from steels to alloys does make a difference on your insurance - but not as much as you might think usually because they are safer - but do add value! Alloys look much nicer though!
  3. Alloy Wheels!

    Hi Dalebhoy1888, I was looking at the black ones for my car a little while ago, but the only ones I could find were these ones: http://compare.ebay.co.uk/like/321094668314?var=lv&var=sbar&_lwgsi=y&cbt=y&device=c&adtype=pla&crdt=0&ff3=1&ff11=ICEP3.0.0&ff12=67&ff13=80&ff14=66&ff19=0 They are the 16" black alloys. Here are the white ones too: http://compare.ebay.co.uk/like/160798556373?var=lv&var=sbar&_lwgsi=y&cbt=y&device=c&adtype=pla&crdt=0&ff3=1&ff11=ICEP3.0.0&ff12=67&ff13=80&ff14=66&ff19=0 I dont know what your alloys are like at current - I really like mine - because I have also toyed with the idea of having them dipped gloss black. I've looked into it and I got a quote of £65 per wheel including pick up and delivery!
  4. Aux, Bluetooth And Voice Command Buttons Not Working

    Hi guys, Still playing around with this - not got anything working. What would I need for a firmware upgrade? Or is this something I am going to need to take to Ford? Also, I went to start my engine on Friday night and it had completely died - wouldnt start at all. All the electrics flashed up and then nothing happened. I jump started the car and took it for a quick run out. The next morning the same thing happened!! Again I jump started it - this time was then driving it for the majority of the day. It hasnt happened again since then. Is it likely this is linked to the whole bluetooth thing? Or a completely seperate problem!? Whatever you think, does anything have any ideas of how to sort this? Thanks guys, Leon
  5. Aux, Bluetooth And Voice Command Buttons Not Working

    Alright guys, I have now tried disconnecting both the battery and the Bluetooth module itself for as long as half an hour and the best I get is that all the options come back up, the aux works temporarily and then it all goes back to how it is right now - ie. not working! Really irritating that it will fix temporarily but then won't work again for some reason! Thanks for the suggestions so far! Anymore?!
  6. Aux, Bluetooth And Voice Command Buttons Not Working

    Thanks for the reply. I definetely have the bluetooth module in the car, I have been using it for the last couple of months with no issues whatsoever. It is only now that it has suddenly mucked up. I feel lost without it now! lol Any ideas?
  7. Hi guys, First time posting here, so go easy on me ;) Really need some help! Couple of days ago I realised my phone wasn't coming through to my car, didn't think anything of it at the time. Then when I went to phone someone the other day my voice command button didn't work, so I pressed the phone button - all this did was mute the radio!! Again, yesterday I went to plug my phone into the aux socket to listen to my music and this button does absolutely NOTHING! As you can imagine, quite annoyed about the whole thing! If this has happened to anyone before now and they know how to get it all back up and running smoothly, I'd really appreciate their help! Thanks in advance guys, Leon
