Hi Quiggles, The lead you found on the left hand side of the glove box is a rouge lead for some other use no one at Ford can figure out. I just sent my USB port back due to the wrong config. You need to do what it states earlier and that is too upgrade your stereo and BT module then you can attach a loom to the plug. I havent done this as i'm gonna look for another way.

Have something to contribute?

Probably bad form to reference other forums, and I apologise for that, but I have included the link so the appropriate people are credited...

I did more research myself - the rogue cable appears to be something to do with the passenger airbag but the full story seems to be:-

www.fordmondeo.org/forum/printpost.php?tid/807994/

Behind the glove box you will find the main wiring harness.
On pre 08/2008 Mondeo's (fitted with BT/VT) there was an 8 pin socket and a plug looped wires to control the microphone wiring (6000/Sony or satnav).
On post 08/2008 Mondeo's (BT/VC now fitted as standard) there is a 22 pin socket and plug with looped wires, this varies the AUX socket wirng for BT/VC only (aux direct to stereo) or BT/VC+USB (aux to BT/VC module, stereo output from BT/VC module to stereo).

Therefore AUX socket in glove box has 3 wires.

If you can find a Ford dealer who knows how to upgrade the software on a BT/VC only module (later 19G488 with usb socket), you would only need to get :-


Cable Assembly 1543691 £20.14 Cable from the BVC to the USB Socket
Control AS 1543450 £3.15 USB Socket
Bezel 1540778 £5.55 Plate to mount USB in glove box


Otherwise you will need a 19C112 module as well.

Unfortunately I cannot post any pictures of the above socket, or it's exact position as my Mondeo was a 12/2007 build without BT/VC.

PLEASE NOTE


The date the wiring changed is given as 08/2008 by Ford, but any car built within a month or so of this date should be visualy checked (to confirm wiring)before ordering any parts.

Hi everyone. Just joined the forum and seen this topic. I know it's a bit old now, but the suggested fix seems inconclusive
I have a 2009 titanium with sony DAB/6 CD WITH 3.5mm jack plug AUX INPUT,but no USB. I have purchased the USB port and bezel following the advice in this thread.

I have removed my glovebox and found the 6 pin connector with 3 wires in it that is talked about.
My questions are
1. Is there a 6pin block connector to USB available from anywhere?
2. Where can I get one?
3. There is no blank in the glovebox to cut out for the USB bezel. Should there be?

Kind regards
David

Hey guys ,

 


Thanks for all the information above , i rang my local ford dealer last week and asked about this part , same again they said there is no such part , when i gave them the part number they said it doesnt even show on there system ,

 

Could you give me the contact number of which branch you got this from , going try pull some strings and show the dealer round here how rubbish they are ,

 

Just to confirm will i need to update my system once i install this USB port , i have the convers+ system already in my 58 Mondeo titanuim .

 

Cheers

 

Dan

Hi Dan
I have been round this very topic for my own 2009 titanium. It is confusing to say the least, but the topic has been covered in detail on this forum. Basically after I had bought the USB socket and cable from my local dealer it still wouldn't work. The key before you do anything is to take the glovebox out and note down or photograph the Bluetooth module. There is a list of modules and part numbers on this forum that tell exactly what the module can do. For instance my module will not drive a USB port. The cable I bought from the dealer plugs into the Bluetooth module. Mine has no plug for this cable to mate with.
Sorry if this is old news now. But don't buy anything till you know the Bluetooth module part number.

David

Hi Guys, Just signed up to get information on this tread..

I'm from Australia and I've just bought an 08 Xr5 Turbo Mondeo. It doesn't have bluetooth however I may add it later. Will my mondeo have the ability to add the USB port by purchasing the parts mentioned above?

 

Thanks in advance!!

I do believe that all that's required is a usb connector for the end of the cable which is usually taped up behind the glovebox liner.

Sweet! So would I need to get the bluetooth first or will it work without the bluetooth box?

If I ever get a decent bit of weather when I'm not working I'll definitely have the glove box out and see if I can find this cable.If it's not there at least I'll be able to see what module I have.My Mondeo is a 2010 on a 60 plate with a build date of 26.03.10 so fingers crossed.

Check your Bluetooth module, it will say USB in the description on it (you will need a torch and mirror or neck strain) if their is not a cable plugged into the Bluetooth unit then don't bother looking for another usb plug it will not exist, note that that some pre usb modules have a usb socket but its for engineering not usb as we no it. you will get more info if you quote module number.

Yep, if you only have one socket on the bluetooth module then that's that.
If you have two then any usb cable can be plugged in and positioned where you want.
