In Topic: Box On Windscreen????

You're telling us it isn't, OK, so what is it then?


The OES number for it is 5249844 and the mounting bracket: 5230528.


(I'm in the windscreen business and this information was emailed to me by Pilkington).


Pilkington is right, the numbers 5249844 and 5230528 are the bracket and GPS receiver/module. In post #33 you can see that is definitely the GPS receiver/module. I certainly hope that Ford's ECAT software shows the right parts and part numbers. 


The link below shows a rain/lightsensor for a Fiesta without active city stop, as you can see it is totally different. Even the part numbers don't match.


The sensor with active city stop is small and round, but I couldn't find the right picture.


The TS could disconnect the box. When it is removed there should be a message on the radio screen that says 'NO GPS'.

There is no such thing as an emergency assistance module. The emergency assistance option, what you probably referring to, is a peace of software inside the SYNC module. The Sync module receives his information from the GPS module and the RCM module (airbag/seatbelt module). In case of an accident or emergency the SYNC module calls 112 and sends out a help request. The help request contains your GPS location and some other info. This systems needs a paired phone, otherwise it can't make any calls.

It depends on which model you have. A 5-door Fiesta with electric rear windows always has the auto closing/opening function.
If you've got an 3-door fiesta you need two things: A luxury GEM module and an IDS computer to activate this function.

Some lucky Fiesta owners do have those things factory fitted.

And here is another picture.

Hopefully it will help you.
