#457417 Connects2 Autodab

Posted by steatk on 22 February 2015 - 12:24 PM

I've just fitted one of these this morning in my 2012 Fiesta after giving up trying to swap the headunit to a Ford DAB one. It doesn't seem to work no matter what I try.

It took me around 90minutes to fit the unit. Still not happy with where I've left the connects2 unit.

When changing the screen wiring, I found pulling the existing cable out of the clips and to in front of the screen helped. Then ran the new loom from the front of the screen around the clips to the back. Where the new loom connects to the old loom just sits down in front of the screen.

There's no room behind or around the stereo for the connects2 unit, so I ran the cables down the left of the stereo to behind the glove box.

I've just got the connects2 box wedged between the glove box and the heater block. There doesn't seem to be any space big enough to attach it securely in place. I live in a variable DAB signal area but it seemed to match the signal quality of the Pure Highway I was using. I'll have a drive out later and see how it I live in a town under a large hill, once I'm out of town DAB signal is much stronger.
