Hi guys...

Its been a while! I have moved away from the beloved Fiesta and now only get to drive it every other weekend.

Anyway, a couple of weeks ago i came to park the Fiesta up on the Sunday and realised that the radio wouldnt turn off properly. Even with keys out and no music playing the radio was still on standby, like when you turn it off when driving.

I then had someone take it for a spin on the Tuesday and they reported everything was fine and the stereo had turned off..... but i think they were wrong!!!

I came to unlock it yesterday and the fob was not working.... so i tried to open with the key: again, no joy!

It would appear the stereo has drained the battery completely and i am now locked out of my car.

I have called Ford Assistance but apparently you only get 1 year cover with a new car... but 2 with a used :-/

Any suggestions would be much appreciated; both with regards to what is up with the stereo and also how i can possibly get into the car to get the battery charged back up?

You should still be able to open the drivers door with the key as I didn't think they were electic locks.

Like Sam said drivers door should open with the key.

I have noticed my stereo doesn't appear to be 100% off sometimes, I clicked lock on the fob an extra time though and it seemed to resolve the issue.
