Ford fiesta Stereo LCD Screen UPGRADE

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I recently changed my basic two line monochrome blue display with full color sony display, i only changed the screen, it was plug and play.

My car didn't have sync or bluethooth to begin with, only USB and radio/CD, after the screen change USB and radio/CD work as intented.

My issue is that with the new screen, I lost the car information messages (for example when a door is open, i no longer get the message on the screen), i lost the MYKEY menu aswell.

When i go into setting, i only have audio setting and time setting, not even the option to change the language,

I have not replaced the silver box, also i have not replaced the facia, still have the 1-6 numberpad.

Is there a way i can get the car information messages back on my new shiny display, i dont car for bluethooth/sync and can live without MYKEY feature but i definetly want the car information messages feature back.

Anyone who have done this mod before please advice,

thanks :)

I'm looking to upgrade my screen also. Where did you buy it from?

I bought it from a friend of mine who just upgraded his 2016 fiesta titanium with a 7inch touchscreen head unit running android 5.1, he has now navigation and digital climate control and obd2 gauges and much more by just installing apps from playstore !

have you re read your cars config files with forscan as you may have only stored the backup file and not stored the mail file.

My car has central configuration main on ipc and central configuration backup on bcm.

I never entrered the backup bcm, only wrote twice so far to main ipc, first time to enable trip computer wich was successful, and this second time to make the car recognize my new display, the write to ecu was succesful but my problem isnt fixed.

when i go back to central config i find the value for touchscreen already in color mfd5

On the Focus MK3/MK3.5 it is but not on the Fiesta MK7/MK7.5. On the Fiesta the IPC is the main config and the BCM the backup.

For some reason Ford found it a good idea to have it reversed on the Fiest.

It's "Touch Screen" option in IPC config

My original value for "touch screen" was : No touchscreen Starbust MFD2.

I changed this value to : No touchscreen color TFT MFD5.

I also changed ICP to extended and radio to high level radio.

I wrote to main and backup (IPC and BCM) just to be sure, the write is successful but my problem is not solved.

I tried another value for touchscreen : No touchscreen color TFT MFD4. still no luck.

My screen is working reading cd/mp3 as intended and radio works but i still have only 6 presets, it crashes when i try to go to 7th preset.

I can't change the language nor can i change from KM to miles, i lost MY KEY functions, and i lost the car information messages (for example when a door is open).

Please help this is driving me nuts.

Nope, my car is a base model, i had cd/radio + usb basic radio with two line monochrome display.

I don't care about bluethooth or sync thats why i kept my original silver box and 1to6 facia.

I only changed my two line display with full color sony display.

I used forscan before to enable the tripcomputer and foglights and both worked perfect without any complications.

I don't understand why i am unable to make my car aknownlegde my new display.

That's your problem, the color screen can not load car information without Sync.

Oh i see, guess retrofitting a sync module into my car is not possible because the wiring for it may not be present for my car.

I found some sync modules on sale for less than a 100£, i can afford that but i'm not sure it can be installed on my car.

Maybe i'm better off removing this OEM color screen, and getting an aftermarket 8inch android based touchscreen with built in bluethoot and can-bus support.
