Cheap Bluetooth Streaming Option

14 January 2014 - 06:24 PM

I was looking into finding some way of streaming music from my phone to the car stereo, without using an aux wire.  I came accross this on ebay and thought i would give it a go:




I was a bit dubious as i have the voice dialing option on the stereo already.  But im glad to report it pairs to the ford stereo and the music receiver at the same time! I have tried playing music and then using the voice control to make a call and it works no problem what so ever! im yet to receive a call whilst using it but im pretty confident it will work!


The only downside is when the stereo is on aux, it does not display track name etc etc, but for the price im not bothered.



A good option for anyone that would like to stream from their phone via bluetooth, i hope its some help to some people!

P2584 Eml

23 December 2013 - 10:03 PM

To cut a long story short I had error p2584 come one, I went to a garage. They reset the fault, removed my dpf, and I had the car remapped.  A couple of days later the eml came on with no code.  The next day it was on, they a couple of days later it came on again. Eventually after this happening around 3 times the dpf light came on the dash.  I went back to the garage and they said it shouldn't of happened.They reset all the faults including the fluid count eolys, but used different software or equipment this time.  Again iI had no faults for a couple of days, but it has re appeared exactly as it did before.


Can anyone help with this please?

Reverse Light Not Working/gearbox Problem?

17 December 2013 - 06:47 PM

HI, I have recently had a new clutch & master slave cylinder fitted.  Noticed the other day that my reverse light is not working as my parking sensor did not go off when reverse was selected.  I have checked the wires and there is no power going to them at any time even when the car is in reverse.


I have checked the fuse under the glovebox and that was fine.  I naturally assumed it was the reverse sensor located on the gearbox so I fetched one of these to day and replaced it.  The only problem is I still don't have power to the back of the car.  I crossed over the feeds on the clip to the reverse sensor and it was both sides indicating no problem there, yet I still cant get it to work.


Any suggestions please?

Elm And Dpf Advice

10 November 2013 - 10:26 AM

Hi all, well I brimmed my tank last night and this morning I have had the eml light & dpf light come on. I've checked the error code and it's saying that the dpf fluid is low! I have a couple of questions really?

1: would it be ok to continue driving the car like this, if so how long for?

2: should I just get the dpf gutted and get a remap? The car has done currently around 86k and I haven't had any dpf problems until now.
