I concur with iNath, I had to chase up about 15 breakers before I found one with a S1600 that was totalled, EXCEPT for its stereo and it's accoutrements ;)

Then a dealer or person with access to Ford VCM + IDS software with a few mins to spare.

If you have any questions ask away or PM me smile.gif

Hiya,

Just a quick question - With this particular cable and the Bluetooth USB Module, is it possible to use a normal USB-A to mini USB then buy a female to female USB Adapter so that it changes the connection type on the USB-a side? (If that makes sense..) or do I HAVE to buy that cable from Ford?

You can use THIS cable (when it's back in stock, usually £1.10) and I can confirm it works with the following restriction. The USB input end (ie when you plug your memory stick in) on the Ford cable is a custom mold that fits perfectly in to the plastic housing down by the gear stick. This is not and so will not fit, you could just leave it dangling in the glovebox or try and come up with another solution.

Looks good to me. And I believe it should, but I've only tried it the other way round (activated it for someone before their USB module arrived, old one continued to work fine)

You can update before swapping modules around? In that case does anyone know someone that can update my IDS around gloucestershire?

Hey I'm new, just registered and I'm looking to add a Bluetooth unit with USB to a standard ford fiesta 2009 head unit.

What is it that we have to ask a ford garage to do exactly, I understand they will need to have a Ford VCM + IDS diagnostics unit and software but what do they need to change?

What was the part code for the USB connector for modules before the micro USB connector?

I've got an AM module.

Hi guys i've been looking for a module for a while and unfortunately on ebay are models with this number: 8M5T-19G488
for example

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FORD-BLUETOOTH-VOICE-CONNECTIVITY-CONTROL-HANDS-FREE-MODULE-8M5T-19G488-AN-/140942914138?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item20d0da325a

Do you have any idea if they are going to work?

I tried to find modules with our scrapies but unfortunately they had no clue about it... and they advised me to contact my dealer. I did it and guess what I ROFLed big time. They said that they will have to replace the whole stereo system to make it work with usb... Sadly this is the 2nd time they make me lough at them. The previous time was when i had problems with the front suspension bushes and etc. Their way to fix it was to grease all bushes and bolts over the dust protectors :lol:. I drove the car 5times to the workshop and 5times they confirmed the car is repaired, which was a big fat lie. So I went to another mechanic who replace what was needed to be replaced like suspension arms, stabilizers, antirollbar bushes, top strut mountings and friction bearings. All of those items were soft as cheese. Then I gave the bill to the dealer and i got my money with their apologies...

Sorry for offtopic

P.S. I'm from Denmark, dealer is Andersenford A/S. Stay away from them! Car is still in guarantee till end of may this year ;)

P.S.S I'm also struggling to find theese

Hi,

I'm also new to the forum. I have just ordered these parts through my local Ford dealer in Northampton. I think I may have sourced a suitable module but wont know until it arrives. Can your Ford dealer in Denmark? You'll struggle to find them anywhere else I think.

Regards,

Alex

Kind regards

Cheers, well i was really suspicious. I bought the car from the showroom. I was looking at some catalogs there and was written that for this version "trend" there should be an usb connection too but there isn't so i asked them and they said that the catalog is wrong. oO

I wont be surprised if i dont need IDS update.. Hmm but another thing makes me a bit confused, when i tried to play music via bluetooth i was unable.

P.S. I wonder what inath thinks bout it as pro expert ;)

Kind regards

Won't work unfortunately, that port is only for dealers to update the firmware. You need a module that states Bluetooth Voice Connectivity & USB.

Here is my table showing the module numbers (it's the 2nd half you're interested in)
