Well since the Bluetooth isn't working I imagine the module is at fault?

I have a spare cable like that somewhere so I'll give it a try and report back

Almost definitely, just wanted to rule the cable out as it was cheaper than a module :) (rather than doing it in the other order!)

Ahh fair enough, I'm gutted cause a USB Bluetooth module went for £50 on eBay the other day but I weren't sure if that was my problem

Is there no way of fixing the module rather than replacing it?

Not that I know of, never opened one up to be fair though. I imagine it's all circuit boards inside so not much the average Joe can do.

Be aware that there are two types of modules, only Bluetooth and Bluetooth+USB. There are also different types of USB connectors aswell. You would be better off buying a module with the same partnumber as the old one. They use the same modules on any Ford.
