Retro-Fit Usb........ It Works!!

158 posts in this topic

 

Gents, looks like there is a lot of knowledge in this forum around the retrofit Bluetooth module so I'm hoping someone might be able to help.

I've retrofitted a module 8M5T-19C112-AS bought off ebay into a mk2.5 Focus, but I can't get it to work properly.

I can see USB files, but they wont play (invalid file), and also my phone connects but keeps dropping off. Basically, it aint working!

I tried updating the VIN usling ELMconfig, but no difference. What I did notice though is that when I save the SRM module config to a file, it is showing mostly zeros. Not sure it this is right or not but it makes me suspicious that it might have been corrupted.

I wondered if anyone had a similar module and could send me their ELMconfig file to try?

Any other ideas would also be much appreciated, cos at the moment I'm stuck!

Cheers, Tim

I will need the stereo, the fascia, the usb loom, the bluetooth module and what else ?

Any tips please ?

Thanks Clive - I've just received a quote for £45.24 plus VAT from a dealer in Salisbury so if most dealers charge around the same I may as well go to one more local and save on the postage

The car is in the dealership today getting the work done... I fitted a 8M5T-19C112-AN module with mini USB to the car over the weekend, and it works like a charm! Thanks to everyone on this thread :)

One thing which others considering this might find useful to know - the dealers I spoke to were all a bit confused by what I was asking them to do. When I eventually spoke to the master tech, he said what I should have been asking for is to change the vehicle configuration from BVC (Bluetooth Voice Connectivity) Low to BVC High - once he'd sussed that out it was an easier discussion!
