Hi,

 

I have upgraded my phone to a Samsung Galaxy S4 from a Samsung Galaxy S2.  However I cannot connect my phone to my Sony CD6000 Radio.  Code does not appear when I try to pair.  I have tried looking at the compatibility list on the ford site but the link does not work.  Any suggestions would be gratefully received

 

Thanks Martin

I believe that only a total of 6 phnes can be bonded to the BT module at any time so deleting old ones is definitely a good start.

It may be worth doing a BT module reset by pulling the plug out of the module and leaving for 10 minutes.

Which year is your Focus and which type of radio is installed? The 6000CD and Sony are 2 different radio's. The 6000CD is the standard Ford radio which is made by Visteon and has nothing to do with Sony. The Sony is the Original premium radio which was available in single CD or 6-CD changer version with or without DAB. The Sony is also made by Visteon but is licensed by Sony.


Focus MK2 and early MK2.5 versions (until approximately 04-2008) do have the old Bluetooth/Voicecontrol system which uses Bluetooth/Voicecontrol modules which can not be updated. My experience is that many newer phones are not supported and do not function correctly with the old system.

Later Focus MK2.5 versions (after approximately 04-2008) do have the new Bluetooth/Voicecontrol system. Modules of this system can be updated to support newer phones. Modules which do not support USB playback (part number 8M5T-19G488-XX) do have a USB connector for update purposes. These modules can only be updated by Ford. Modules which support USB and Bluetooth Audio (A2DP) playback (part number 8M5T-19C112-XX can be updated by performing the Ford Audio Update which can be downloaded from the Ford website.


If your car has the old Bluetooth/Voicecontrol system and your Phone is not supported it probably will never work.
If your car has the new Bluetooth/Voicecontrol system the problem may be solved by updating the Bluetooth/Voicecontrol module firmware.
