Hello Everyone

 

I have just brought a used 2013 Focus Titanium X,

 

I am having some problems with the DAB radio. the car is not finding the DAB station that I like such as LBC, kiss, Capital Xtra,

 

it has found all BBC stations and heart, XFM, ect.

 

I have scanned for the stations on both DAB1 And DAB2 but still no luck

 

Can some please help me

 

Thank you

I have the Titanium with a Dab radio and receive all the channels including Kiss, Capital LBC etc. live on the Surrey stretch of the M25 but channels do drop out the further I travel West. The problems you may have maybe regional.

Does sound like it might be due to signal, I'm pretty sure I have KISS although don't use DAB that much so would have to check.

Thanks for your reply

I have another problem

The songs on my iphone have suddenly stop playing via Bluetooth

The phone and phone book is working perfect

I have done a master reset but still not working

Whilst my phone is connected to the car the speakers on the iphone don't produce any sound

Anyone else had this problem

It was working fine for the first 2 days

Thanks

One thing that might be worth a try is powering your phone off, I don't use an I-phone myself but powering off my I-pad in the past has resolved a lot of Apple problems.

I done the master reset on the sync setting within my car and I have deleted my phone from the Bluetooth devices in the car

Also I have re added the phone but it's still not working

Can I take my car back to fords

Will these issues be covered by the warranty

Yes it will be covered under manufacturer warranty, so they should sort it.

If you have an iphone

Can you connect via USB

And if it's paying via Bluetooth are your track names displayed on the car screen

No on my focus with sync, track names do not appear. It's a shame really as with the Fiesta with just Bluetooth and not sync it does show track names.

I have the Sony DAB stereo and find that DAB stations vary depending where I am, Capital will work at home (Cambridge) but there's barely any stations other than BBC available at work (Milton Keynes); it is dependent on regional variations.

I tend to stream Spotify via bluetooth from my Samsung Galaxy S4 and find that occasionally it pauses itself, though I reckon it may be a software glitch on my phone. I don't get track names either, but I used to on my old iPhone.

I have a 2013 Titanium X as well - have always had issues with my DAB radio and have now given up trying to use it. I live in Sussex and I have noticed that in some areas the signal is fine (the further South I go). Whereas around where I live and around the dealership I bought the car from, the signal is terrible. It doesn't pick up many of the main stations. I spoke to the Ford dealer I bought the car from and they said it is just down to poor signal strength. I don't know if this is them coming up with an excuse but I'm happy at the moment just plugging my iPod in to play music.
