hello all,

 

newbie here.  just saw this section on the forum so would like to ask a couple of quick questions having bought a 2nd hand car from motorpoint this week.

 

what manuals should be in the black ford folder - is there 1 specifically for my sony dab radio system?

 

i read on here that i don't get a radio code as it checks the vin on start-up each time.  i've called a few ford dealers in s.wales and none of them said this.  what's true?  people on here have said i don't get a code but would like to be really sure.

 

thanks all,

me

As far as i am aware there is no radio code and it does not check the Vin either as i have seen a number of people that have upgraded and they have not had to go to the dealers to get it configured.

 

I have never really looked to see if there is a specific manual for the radio in my book. But i will chek tomorrow

thanks preee.  quite a few differences of opinion with my mk3 sony dab radio code(or not) then.

 

as for manual, i can work most of it out myself just by pressing buttons, etc. but i can't seem to get an auto-tune from my dab(or equivalent).  it talks about blocks and i don't know what they are.

 

ideally there's something online somewhere which i can go and look.  i might take a drive to my local ford dealer and see if they've got anything.

 

they seem to be quite unhelpful once they know i didn't buy the car from them though...
