And yet again..... disappointment, mainly from ford <_<

Basically, they said the car has everything enabled to have USB, the guy doing the work was as confused as i am right now... He tried loads - run many diagnostic tests from IDS. IDS claimed there were faults there that weren't (like the voice control wasnt working, when clearly it was).

So what now? The guy says that he wants the car booked in again, and it will get priority over other cars :rolleyes: So will probably have a whole day spent looking at it. He was concerned that the BT module was possibly faulty. but before he can say yes its faulty and get ford to order a new one he has to check the cables, so he is ordering in all the cables, so they can be checked (pointless to me, they are just usb cables). then they can go to the next stage in IDS, which he thinks is the bluetooth module, so if it comes down to that, they probably can order a new one.

He confirmed all the parts were correct, and was going to double check again.

My guess is that its maybe the module. because he explained that parts like these are plug and play, no software upgrades needed anymore. So looks like we're all going to have to wait that little bit longer, sorry people. Hopefully will get my car booked in for Monday/Tuesday, and I am determined not to leave ford until it is working.

The retrofit should be just plug and play. The mondeo/s-max usb retrofit is well documented as just a plug and play installation. I cant see any difference between them and the Fiesta's. Im just really glad we ordered the wife's with usb to save the expense and the hassle. But why USB, along with bluetooth cant be a standard feature on any car i dont know

I believe the module is plug and play, just happens that mine is probably faulty, well i hope it is because if not im lst for ideas.
I've had the whole lot all out again, checking connections for solder joins (just in case), checking all cables are ok. replugging everything in. Even reset the whole centre console (disconnect battery for 10 mins)
Still nothing, so roll on the 30th.. Could be a new years present from Ford lol.

Well sorry to rub a bit of salt into the usb wounds. But been out this afternoon and retrofitted my mondeo with usb. Very straight forward, and was all just plug and play. Now shows on the Blaupunkt and Converse+ "usb", "Ipod", "Bluetooth"(for audio streaming), "Line in" :D

Now for sale is my old USB module.

Well if Steve Dark's retrofit comes in the end to fruition, then i just thought i'd let you know that there is a market out there for you old bluetooth modules. I have just sold the old module from my mondeo on Ebay for 85 :D
