This might sound a daft question but it is definately a DAB radio they've fitted isnt it? They havent maybe guffed up and orderred a normal one? Im not sure about the New fiesta like I said mines a mk6 so its an after market stereo from halfords

Hi I bought the radio of ebay and fitted it myself, here is the model number sticker

 

I had an aftermarket DAB stereo in my MK6, I've only had this car a few weeks.

DAB radios do normally need power through the aerial to boost the signal reception. The Sony DAB I retroffited to my mk6 does this through the powerfeed into the stereo but you need to turn it on in a sub menu on the stereo.

Hi How do I get into the sub menu to turn it on. At the moment I don't even get a DAB option on the radio menu

Hi, I don't even get a DAB menu, so fitting an alternative aerial would make no differnce. The car stereo has 2 aerial sockets, 1 black and 1 white, the car has matching aerial cables which are connected.

Hi, I have a 2012 fiesta. It had the standard Ford stereo in, none DAB. I bought a Sony/DAB stereo off ebay,
I have fitted it and I get no DAB menu,

What do I need to get the DAB working and where can I buy it from?


The Sony DAB stereo I have is model  RADIO AHU DAB, Part number AA6T-18C815-XB. Any help would be apprecated.


 

Thanks

I think (and check with your dealer before purchasing as I cannot be held responsible) that the part you need is 1748714.

Hi, I have a 2012 fiesta. It had the standard Ford stereo in, none DAB. I bought a Sony/DAB stereo off ebay, I have fitted it and I get no DAB menu, Do I just need this cable to be able to get it working? How does it connect. I went to my local Ford dealer Today, the part number is now 1803231 and it costs £36.20  but the man in the parts department wasn't sure that's all I needed.

The Sony DAB stereo I have is model  RADIO AHU DAB, Part number AA6T-18C815-XB. Any help would be apprecated.
