First point of call needs to be the fuse box

There should be two fuse's for the radio.

Next step i guess will be to pull the radio out and check conections , at the same time you can check your getting power to it.

Have you tried resetting by pulling the fuse (having the keycode ready)? Some information would be helpful - which satnav?Travelpilot NX (DVD), EX (CD) or FX (SD) or aftermarket?

Some radios have a fuse mounted in the back under the loom connector.

Sounds like you might have a shortout in the wiring somewhere. So at no point the radio will turn on at all?

No, the radio won't work at all or the sat nav etc.

Take the unit out and check the wiring, it could be that there has been a bit too much heat, and the wires have bonded, possibly causing the short out.

What year is your Smax? If it's 2006-2008 it needs a software update applying to fix this.

Just dropped it off at ford. We couldn't see anything obvious. Will let you know what the outcome is.

It was a fault inside the audio system. Needs to be replaced and has had to be disconnected to rectify battery drainage until replacement installed.

I just come back from two weeks vacation and I have exactly the same problem. Do you remember how much was the unit replacement?
