Please help! I have a 2011 (Nov) Fiesta. I bought the car second hand last April (2012) and have been listening to my IPod nano (the small square one) without any problems, using the Ford Y Cable, until last week. Now I'll be listening to the music and it will just stop (as if it had been paused), the display on the ford dash shows the track name, the time is not moving and there is no sound. Then the display will say either "IPod initialising" or "Error reading iPod device". On the occasions it says "initialising" after it has "initialised" the display returns to the track with the time not moving and still no sound. If I unplug the cable and plug it back in again sometimes it'll start working, but most times it doesn't. I have tried another Ford Y Cable, which hasn't made any difference. I have also tried using the iPod Dock cable with audio lead from the headphone socket, which also doesn't work. So the 3 cables I've tried all react in the same way. I have also tried playing the iPod on its own, and this plays perfectly OK. I haven't updated the iPod software either. Please can anyone offer a solution? Thanks.

Hi Bez, after this post, it packed up completely. The Bluetooth didn't work on my phone and the Bluetooth commands for "climate" & "radio" etc didn't work either. I took it to a Ford dealer who replaced the Bluetooth unit, and everything was fine after that. Just a note though. Only when the unit had completely packed up could my Ford dealer find the fault. Whilst I had the intermittent fault with the iPod, they couldn't find anything wrong.
