Good evening all,

Forgive me if this has already been asked, but I could not find anything specific for my model. I want to have Bluetooth and USB fitted to my Focus Zetec 59 Plate (MK2.5).

I have the standard Zetec stereo fitted with the call answer and end buttons which act as a mute switch. I have found a guide in relation to fitting the USB, but I would also like Bluetooth calling.

Can anyone give me any pointers or help and also explain what IDS is and if it would help me in my quest?

I appreciate all your help! Thank you and Happy holidays.

Sats.

Take out your glovebox and see if you have a large plug taped into the loom on the left hand side. If you do then you have the wiring for the Bluetooth module. If you buy a new enough Bluetooth module it will also have USB too though not sure how it will work with your current stereo...

There's some info in a how to guide I made if you want to check it out. Shows how to upgrade from Bluetooth to Bluetooth and USB but should give you some idea what to look for.

IDS is Integrated Diagnostic System.
Basically it's what Ford use for fault finding and system programming.

Hi all, thanks for your replies. I will take out the glovebox and check as stated above. Can it get expensive retrofitting Bluetooth in a ford focus?

I am not to keen on having parrot installed. I will check on Boxing Day and report back.

Thanks all!

Hi Folks, just an update. I have not had a chance to take my glove box out yet.

However, I have come across a Ford Sony DAB unit that I am looking to buy, but it has a FAKRA connection on it. As my Focus is a 2009 model, it has an ISO connection (I hope that's right?) or would it be din?

Anyway would the following adapter from eBay resolve any issues converting the FAKRA connection to ISO?

Any replies are welcome.

Thanks.

If installing a DAB radio you need the DAB aerial, base mount, and two cables - one which connects from the aerial mount to the drivers side A pillar and the cable which then splits into two for DAB/FM (ISO and Fakra respectively).
I recently posted a message where the required parts and approximate costs were listed.

Thanks for that mate! I appreciate it! Regarding the Fakra / ISO connection would the one i posted a link for from eBay do the job?

Also does radio look like the correct one?

That cable is only an aftermarket radio aerial adaptor not a DAB/FM aerial lead.
As the Ford gen3 DAB radio has two aerial connectors you need the parts as listed previously to connect the radio correctly.
That radio you listed will fit no problems.
Not a bad price too seeing as they're over £1000 new from Ford.

Stoney, thanks for your help pal! I greatly appreciate it. When I install the DAB aerial to the headliner after removing the light. Do I keep the fm wire there also?

Is there anyway I can PM you or contact you on FB?

Thanks matey.

Sats.

The new wires replace all other wiring from aerial to radio.
You cam P/M me via the club.

Hi Stoney, I have taken a pic of the stereo rear to show you the FAKRA connections it has. Just to clarify the parts you listed would all work right? Thanks a million mate! Sats.

There are what appears to be two Fakra as you say.
If the cables come with an ISO and Fakra then an ISO to Fakra may then be required.
Probably would be a good idea to purchase an adaptor in advance to be on the safe side.
I'll look up a suitable one for you.
