Hi all. Looking for some help regarding the presence of 20 mp3 tracks on my Fiesta 2013 Zetec.

 

When I press the M button on the steering wheel, I can select radio, line in and mp3. When mp3 is selected 20 tracks play in sequence lasting approximately an hour. I have never connected any MP3 device to this car and have never loaded a cd with mp3 tracks.

So my question is, "where are they coming from?"  Did ford load them into memory at the factory or is there some other explanation? I can't find any reference in the manual.  

Can anyone throw any light on this?

It's not being picked up by the Bluetooth on your phone?

USB or CD left connected/in the car?

 

Have you checked to see if CD drive and USB is empty?

 

Also as Marc says, do you have your phone connected via bluetooth?

I can assure you it's not.
I don't have any cd or usb connected and I have no music on my phone.
The tracks are actually quite good!

The only possibility must be that the radio system has memory and these have been loaded by Ford or the supplying dealer, but there is no reference in the handbook to being able to do this. ??

What tracks are they, do you recognise them?

 

Have you made sure there is no CD in the tray that has maybe been left in?

 

Afaik the car has no memory for storing music, only via the USB port.

That's what I thought, but isn't there a second USB port behind the glovebox used for updates or something?  Could that potentially have something left in it?

Not sure about the USB port in the glove box but if there is the last owner may have used it to keep it out the way

My focus calls the USB input USB though.

Are you sure a CD has not been left in the hu?

What are all the options available as you go through the sources, you should have dab and CD in there somewhere as well.

2nd usb doesn't work, only power comes from it.
