In Topic: Sony 6Cd Head Unit

16 March 2013 - 08:04 AM

hi. sorry foe delayed reply, i have been in work, i have removed the unit again and taken a side by side photo, 


as you can see there is a massive difference in the two units, is it even possible to use a normal unit in the ghia car??? i very much doubt that ford would use a completely different dash layout, 


im getting fed up with this issue, may just get a cheap adapter kit and fit me trusty kenwood single din cd player. i have been avoiding this as i wanted to keep the remote on steering column

It sounds like you have a tray error or the laser head has jammed.
Try disconnecting the power to the radio by yanking the fuse to cause a radio reset.
Make sure not have your radio code first though!!!!!
Worst case scenario is you'll need a replacement radio.
Don't go to Ford as they'll charge you about £500.
Also be very sure it's a mondeo radio you get as they are a different fascia shape to the ones in a focus/fiesta and are also deeper in the casing.

i will look into this later, i need to get some keys to be able to remove the unit. and if i need to replace the unit, im not going to, i dont have any music on cd anyways. i just use spotify. only bouhg a cheap cd to test it! kinda wish i didnt now

no, the eject and load buttons dont do anything, it wont go on cd mode, i am assuming that is why they dont do anything, i have no way of knowing if ther is a disc inside already or not.
