Not sure Mark, their device could be self powered? My OBD port is completely reconfigured now and stickers added to the windows to advertise the fact.

#462642 Mk6 Fiesta Flame 1.4 Build Log (Was Fiesta Mk6 5 Door Custom Sub)

Didn't bother purchasing the new car as it was advertised as a non runner, after calling they said it was an ECU fault.

I hired a trailer for £45 and spent around the same on diesel getting there only to find that

1.) The suspension had collapsed
2.) The brakes and everything close to them were held together with rust
3.) The front seat was hanging out
4.) All the interior trim had been misplaced
5.) The loom connecting to the ECU had been wrenched off and the connector was barely in one piece.
6.) The expansion tank was empty as the coolant had poured out of a worn pipe.
7.) One of the headlights was about dead, not road legal
8.) The bonnet had a rust patch

He said the car had not been given any attention as he has a lot of cars on the for court.. I've seen bigger dealerships with less staff care for their cars better.

Hes known all week that I was going to see the car and he didn't even bother to wipe the moss off the roof.

The dealership is called "motor mania" and is located on the outskirts of Manchester. Avoid it at all costs. The owner called his electrican over to talk to me.. who I was able to confuse by telling him if they've swapped the ECU they must replace the clocks and transponder. Had a good argument .

I decided to walk away after paying a £100 deposit which I've lost. So not only have I lost my car, I've lost my deposit, diesel money and trailer hire. Not happy. I'll be walking till next month at least

I'm selling a 3dr 54 plate fiasta firefly in the same colour for spares or repair if your interested Kieran, running and driving but needs rear brakes, ball joints and a couple of tyres sorted for MOT I aslo had to top up the water recently so there could be a leak somewhere I've not had a look as I've now bought our lass a nissan note. I'd take £250 located west cumbria

#344616 What To Do Next...!?

Posted by Gaz RS on 19 March 2014 - 12:27 AM

I could :)

I'm going to do my calipers over next few days but undecided whether to go orange or red and get gel overals to match... Opinions?

Thanks :)



Rule of thumb is not to have more than 3 colours, white, black and the tail lights being red I would go red callipers,  ;)





#341888 Mk 2.5 58 - Retrofit Bluetooth & Usb Questions

Posted by Gaz RS on 12 March 2014 - 02:37 PM

This guide is for the Sony 6 disc dab but will give you a good idea of what's involved, I can remember reading that the NX unit has a mic built into it for voice commands this might explain the stalk with the voice button. 




Also have a read through this, it's for the Kuga but has reference to the NX unit

I looked at this kit before going the factory route, you've made a really good job of fitting it James.


I like where you've fitted the module as well.


I read that the kit can also support voice control it would be interesting to see if it was possible.

Hi Buddy, you need to change the VIN on the second hand module. The VIN will be different to that of the other modules on the cars CAN (network) and will be ignored.


Cheapest and easiest way is a modified ELM327 and the latest ELMconfig once you have these follow what's on my pic

Hey welcome lovely car how did you get on with the Bluetooth was it easy enough to do



Yes as my car was pre wired for it, just had to buy the module, radio stalk, microphone and two patch cables. Is this something your considering? I've loads of pics of the install, location of component and how to fit.
