  1. Hi, My MK1 Focus is fitted with a 5000 RDS headunit, while I decide on what head unit to eventually replace this with, how easy is it to install the CD changer? Should I be able to find the wiring loom connector somewhere (I have looked under the driver seat and its not there). Alternatively, is there a module that would convert the CD interface into a USB device so a portable HDD or USB stick could be connected and controlled from the head unit? Many Thanks, Gavin
  2. Cheers to everyone that replied, the lighter socket is permanetly live - is it a hard task to change it - I would prefer if the socket was controlled from the ignition so I can run with my wireless hotspot etc in the car. Gavin
  3. Cheers, I will check again in the morning, im pretty sure its pulling a constant live - Im using an Ankur 12v -> USB charging cable and the blue LED remains lit when keys are removed and car is locked.
  4. Cheers Stoney, I presume when you say switched live, it only becomes live with the ignition ?
  5. Hi all, Good evening, I have just inherited a Focus MK1 1999 and have a very quick question regarding the 12v supply, it would appear the cigarette adapter is constantly on even with ignition keys removed from the vehicle? Is this correct on a car this age , how easy would it be to change the behaviour so power is fed to the socket when the ignition is on? Many Thanks, Gavin
