On my Focus, it has DAB written on the tip of the antenna as they are different for FM only and DAB cars, could always check that. Although I'm not 100% if they do the same on the Fiesta.

I was interested in that when i bought my Fiesta. Ive got Sony radio, but DAB is not present in my audio setting. Probably depends on country car is shipped.

thanks for reply, i will get photos up and the end of the day when home from work. I have pressed the radio button but no dab comes up only fm, dont undertand why

Thanks again

Nathan

 

 

To confirm, the method I mentioned earlier (keep on pressing the radio button to scroll through FM>MW>DAB1>DAB2 etc) works in my car.

 

Sounds like you either have a fault or DAB is not installed. Are you sure you spec'd it with DAB?

As Dave 2912 said...

 

But if you are not getting dab1 and dab2 on the selection then ford have built your car without it!!!!

 

The standard radio is just a cd with fm/am radio and 6 speakers, the DAB optional factory extra is £100.00, if you asked for it and there is proof on your order form, or the salesman you dealt with backs you up you have a good argument.  But that is only the tip of the iceberg, it will involve then getting a dab radio unit (the bit behind the fascia, maybe upgrading the display screen, they will need to replace the antenna and base unit, and install a dab module that fits to the rear of the car.

 

The worst bit is they have to ENABLE the dab on the cars brain or it simply won't work.  So if they download the cars spec file of all functional items/options for your car it will automatically not select dab.  It's a pain but like i said if the dealers back you up 100% you could get it done.

 

The alternative is they take the car back after sourcing/ordering you another one to the right spec, i would check to see if you paid for the upgrade, it's £100 for the dab radio and £500 for the Sat Nav dab radio, only 2 options available for Zetec S.

 

Hope that helps..

According to ETIS Database your car doesn't have dab.
