Mk2.5 Retrofit Bluetooth / Usb /voice

18 April 2014 - 11:52 AM


 

Hi,

  I am looking at installing Bluetooth and USB to my MK2.5, 59 plate Focus Zetec built in Valencia
 Oct 2009.

 

It was originally fitted with the round CD 6000 radio and
single cd player. I have changed it for a Sony DAB 6 cd player 8M5T-18C939-MD.
A much better radio. The Sony radio firmware is 05 06 01 dated 02 12 2008 so
should be compatible with the upgrade. There is no microphone or any other
wiring installed apart from the radio connector and the Aux port which is wired
straight into the radio connector. The steering wheel control is the standard
one without voice.

 

I have looked at the Focus guide http://www.fordowner...for-focus-mk25/

 

I am just trying to get my head around exactly what items I
need to be on the lookout for. At the moment the list in the guide is what I’m
going on. Any comments or suggestions would be gratefully received.

 

One other option I have seen in other posts is the Kit from Ford. Cost seems to be the factor here.

 


Sony 6Cd Dab Radio # * Symbols

18 March 2014 - 12:45 PM

Hello,

The Sony 6CD DAB radio I have has two buttons marked # and *. They don't seem to do anything and the handbook does not mention them.

Has anyone found out what they do.  Just curious.

Thanks


Bleeding Abs

11 March 2014 - 11:09 AM

Hello,

It's been a couple of years plus since the brake fluid was changed in my 59 1.6 focus 2.5. As I would like to completly flush the system this will also entail flushing the ABS valves / pump etc. Is there anyway of doing this without taking it to Fords.

 

In the past I have used the Gunston Eazybleed kit but this has always been on a non ABS system.

 

I have used the EMLCONFIG to enable several things including tyre deflation detector system but I couldn't see any way to use this to open the ABS valves.

 

Thanks

 

 


Fitting Sony Dab Radio From Mondeo To Focus 2.5

02 November 2013 - 09:16 PM

Hello,
I have also posted this in the Audio forum but thought I would cast my net wider.

I have 59 plate Focus Mk2.5 and would like replace the Ford 6000cd radio with an OEM Sony DAB radio. With this in mind I bought a second hand one from a 2010 Mondeo. I know there is a risk that it may not be compatible but for the price I thought I would give it a go. Physically it fits fine except for the twin FARAK aerial connections which I knew I would have to sort out. The 6000cd has a single ISO aerial connector. My initial problem is after fitting and entering the code I get the message Unconfigured Mode the screen then reverts to normal and pressing the various buttons tries to scan. It fails at this as the aerials are not connected. Loading a CD it finds the tracks and titles and the symbol shows a disk spinning. But there is no sound. The radio is not on Mute and the adjusting the volume correctly shows on the screen.
Plugging in my MP3 player to the Aux port has no effect and pressing the CD/AUX button just changes the CD functions. This works fine on the 6000cd radio.

The steering wheel controls change volume, station etc as normal.

So to summarize all appears to be working apart from no sound and the Aux input not detected.

The part no: I am trying to fit is 8S7T-18C939-MA, model CD345-MCA SONY AUDIOPHILE DAB software ver 04 07 06. The back connector takes the same connector as my 6000cd and there is an additional connector with 10 pins in 2 banks of 5. Not sure what this for but it does look similar to the CD changer connector on my Mk1A Focus radio for the CD changer except its larger.
I knew there was a chance this would not work but any guidance would be most appreciated.
Thanks
