Hey guys I was gonna pick up my 58 plate focus from the garage today but they rang and said the radio is stuck on phone mode? They said I can still get the car but it's booked into ford this week so I think it's pointless getting it until sorted. This a common fault because I don't want a temp fix from the garage if a month down the line it does it again.
Cheers

The radio just needs to be reset by pulling the fuse or disconnecting the battery.
Ensure you have the radio code first.

Thanks for the reply and why has this done it though because im wondering if its a stereo fault and don't want to have the car for a month and does it again?

It's usually a pulse down the mute sensor wire that activates when a phone button is pressed.
It can happen occasionally but is pretty rare tbh.

well I was suppose to be picking up my 58 plate new focus but had a problem with the stereo on Monday and seems still is. I was told to get the car Monday but a radio fault on the car which says its stuck on phone mode I thought was sorted. when to get the car today and its done it again and now the radio wont turn off and the dashboard light also wont turn off?? The garage are giving me a courtesy car until its been sorted in the ford garage. I hope this is not a bad omen on me getting this car? Clearly something wrong with the stereo and funny how its now affected the light on the dashboard?

Oh well fingers crossed it will be sorted before xmas??

well at least they have sent it off... took long enough like!

 

Why dont you take the car as it is without a stereo for the short term? at least that way you get your car, with the comforts for the family, ok it will be a bit quiet :P but at least you get it for more often!

Glad it is eventually been sent off. The reason I did not have it on Friday was the stereo done the phone thing again but this tine it would not turn off and the light on the dash also stayed on so would of drained the battery. Rather get the car when all sorted, and think I will put up with the corsa knowing hopefully I will leave Evans Halshaw with a sorted car.

They should give you a car suitable for your needs.
