Dab Problem?

4 posts in this topic


I switched on my car this evening and found that the DAB radio wasn't working.

I couldn't change the DAB channel and no sound at all. Played my USB no problem and bluetooth connection to phone all ok. I didn't actually check FM as was in a hurry.

Anyone else experience this issue? It's he Sony unit, non Sat Nav. Fiesta Titanium

See if it is ok the next time you get in the car.

I have had it before where some things have stopped working on my Focus and the only way to fix it is to lock the car and leave it long enough for everything to shut off completely. You are effectively forcing a reboot of some of the systems.

If it doesn't happen again I wouldn't worry about it, but if it keeps happening I would take it to your dealer and ask them to see if there are any software updates.

I had a similar issue after losing DAB signal whilst driving along a remote Scottish glen.

Everything was back to normal again next day so I guess it needs some time locked to reset.

Thanks all

It seemed to be ok the next day, I guess it just needed a little rest :)
