Trip Computer Test Menu/ford Audio Update

30 July 2012 - 07:43 PM

Hey, I've been trying to both update the audio console since I got my Fiesta on thursday, and no matter how many times I do it, it doesn't update. I'mp retty sure im not on latest version, as Spotify doesn't pull the artist/title through onto the screen.

I've also been trying to get the digital speedo up on the test menu, but all the instructions I've seen (Hold for 3 seconds, turn ignition to stage 2 etc) don't work at all. Any ideas?

My trip computer display is slightly different to any I've seen before, it has the Engine Temp gauge at the bottom of 3 lines ( and I can't get rid of it?) Is this why?

I've got some blue footwell bulbs and hoping the wiring is there. Not sure what else I need to do to it though! I do want some Xtreme Vision bulbs which I might order now.

I pick her up on Thursday after work :D

Im sure you've all seen so many white fiestas, but im so so excited!

Hello! - A Few Questions From A New Owner Of A Fiesta!

01 July 2012 - 04:18 PM

Hey :) I've recently treated myself to a lovely new Fiesta, This will be the first car I've ever bought. in fact the build date of it is tomorrow, and I must admit, I cannot wait to get out of the 13 year old Corsa I'm running at the moment and into something shiny!

I do have a few queries though for when it arrives...

1) I've ordered the Zetec, 1.4l petrol in Frozen White, but will it have a Zetec badge on it? I've seen loads of Feista's that are supposedly Zetec models that don't have them?

2) I also went for some upgrades in the car, Went for the full Sony head unit + DAB radio, the 16" Alloys, and the Auto Headlamps and Wipers. As they're not standard for the model, but still will be delivered to me in the car direct from the factory, will I need to highlight these as modifications? Working as a Motor Claims Negotiator I should really know this, but no one at work seems to know, its a very gray area... as technically the car is modded, but its still brand new from the factory.

3) I really want to get something like http://www.powerbulb...headlight-bulbs when it arrives, as I'm not a fan of the "yellowy" headlamps that are standard these days, I'd like something with some power. As they're just the bulbs, would these need to be reported to my insurer as a mod also?

Many thanks, and I look forward to browsing the forum :)
