Focus Locks Problem With Audio Upgrade!

11 May 2013 - 02:56 PM

Hi  I have a 2008 1.8 TDI Focus with the awful Visteon 6000CD sound system.

When it started to play up (randomly switching to 'phone mode') I decided to upgrade


So i fitted a BEAT290 CD Head Unit with SD Card Input http://www.online-ca...ad-1057470.html with a patch lead kit,


Initially alll was well

the audio system worked consistently and to quality was much improved.


But then I started to get problems with the alarm and central locking

1) all the locks clunking until the battery went flat

2) random alarm soundings


I refitted the horrid old Visteon and the locks and alarms are working properly again!


Help anyone?
