If i swap over head unit, display and bluetooth module from a titanium into a style+ is this likely to work?

Hi there.

I have a Ford Fiesta without USB plug next to the Aux plug.
Anyway, there is an usb plug near the glovebox.
When I plug my USB stick in it, the screen says "usb initialization" or something. When it's done, I press "Aux" button several times but nothing happens.
But my USB stick works fine with another Ford Fiesta, which has USB plug next to Aux plug.

Do you think it could work with my Fiesta if I follow digidash's steps with replaced steps 13&14 ? Are the two parameters correct and sufficient?

Big thanks in advance!


Damn!!!!!!

I just went to garage.
Unluckily it fails when downloading the modified configuration to the car.
Only 1 parameter has been changed successfully
Then we tryed like 4 time changing the other parameter (Bluetooth module I think)

This does not help: nothing happens when I press Aux button several times.

Any idea what I could do?

Of course I have the 8M5T-19C112-xx module!

Thanks a lot in advance

It's interesting you had this problem - I think the Ford software might be buggy! I had a similar problem in that the "CD Player fitted" setting got reset, so the USB worked but the thing refused to acknowledge it had a CD Player! They solved the problem by downloading the original factory configuration from Ford (somehow - not sure how this is done) and then re-enabling the two bluetooth parameters.

Failing that, perhaps it's possible to download the factory configuration of a car of identical spec that had BT/USB fitted from the factory and put that configuration into yours - I'm not sure.

I did manage to get mine working eventually, so don't despair!

Morning All,

I've just found this thread and forum and joined to ask whether I can also have the USB connection. I have the standard 6 button radio without bluetooth or USB, can I add USB or do I have to upgrade the radio to the one with the telephone keypad?

I also looked behind the glovebox, but I can't see this module everyone is posting about, presumably I don't have it to start with, but what cables am I looking for that will connect it if I get one?

Cheers,

Simon

It's underneath the glovebox, in the footwell. There are two clips holding a plastic panel in place. And if you do have a bluetooth module, it's mounted on it.

Nope, no BT module. I think it's going to be easier and cheaper to go aftermarket. My local Ford dealer want around 600 to upgrade the radio unit, whilst that would be nice because it would look nice there are adapter plates out there. Has anyone seen one of the Connect2 fascia plates installed, do they look particularly grim, or is it liveable with?

Decisions, double height radio or single!

Hi


Just my idea but why dont you just download a configuration for a car that already has bluetooth and usb installed and working cant this be done.

If you have a Bluetooth module, why just use the Bluetooth steaming?
I installed a high end module and usb, port, lead, but i use my Samsung galaxy s with Bluetooth hands free, and steam music...

I had a Parrot fitted for less than 200. All the same stuff. MKi9100. It's brilliant.
