  2. Hi guys im hoping that one of you very smart people can please help me with a problem i've been having, my car is a 2000 1.8 climate zetec focus estate - i recently attempted to install a new stereo to my system (ALPINE FLIP SCREEN) half way through the install the radio wouldnt come on at all peviously working realising that i didnt have enough time to fix this i decided to put the stock radio back in until i had time, so i put my stock radio back in entered the code and didnt think anymore to it, i came to my car the day after and noticed when i turned my car on the stereo didnt turn on until i pressed the button, also when i took the igntion keys out the radio stayed on? Im abit of a novice when it comes to stereos i can install by following diagrams thats about it any ideas on this problem, when i switch it on even with the ignition keys in it comes up with the 1 HOUR ONLY notice on the stereo, also ive noticed since this problem my rear windscreen di-mister flashes on then straight off, if anybody could please help i would greatly appreciate it thankyou in advance Leigh

  5. Hey there guys, new to the forum so im looking for some super advice. At the moment i've got a ford fiesta mk4 LX. i've been using an electronic speedometer since ive got this car due to the fact that my speedometer is ridiculous. basically when im driving the speedo is jumping allover the place. averagely it usually bounces around 10mph over what im doing (i know that they have to tell you different than what a sat nav does but not this much) until i get on the motorway anything above 50mph it goes psychopathic its getting to the point now that its annoying me having to have wires into a lighter adapter so i can have an electro speedometer i would just like to be able to look down at my speedometer and know what speed im doing! any help woould be greatley appreciated!!! if you do have any answers can you tell me the way to go about em to! please experts HELP ME!!!!!!!! :( :( :(
