Yes guys that is the (snowflake lol!) frost warning light as I call it. Basically as others have said it goes amber at 4 degrees and red at the 0 or the minus.

I think its purpose (well my explanation lol!) is that its just warns the driver of  if its  cold enough for frosty or icy roads so take care when driving basically.

just a wee update on my HU,

it went wrong the other week, the discs stopped playing I rarely used discs so probably only the 3rd or 4th time I used it, I spoke to Eonon who got me to run some tests and take a video, returned the head unit to HK for replacement, they shipped a new one out and all is well again.

Now, a couple of important things, English isn't their first language, we had some confusion to start with which delayed the return, to be fair it was my fault, my English isn't the best and straying from the queens English too much probably makes as much sense as Chinese does to us. So keep it clear, simple and to the point, also remember the time differences, it can add a few days on to the process if you miss one another!

Next up, the new headunit seems to be an upgrade, the screen appears to have better contrast, appears more fluid and has a connection for DAB+, the previous one had a connection for tyre deflation warning system, this new one doesn't have that but id probably rather have the dab anyway, in all other ways it appears the same, I couldn't see any differences with model numbers either so if your going to buy one it might be worth checking out if it comes with the DAB connection or not

Note that it doesn't have DAB itself, just a connector for an external module.

 

I think mine got lost in the post so will have to reorder after xmas. do you think your fault was a one off? would you still recommend getting the same model Darren?

 

I'm looking forward to getting one of these installed.

Let us know how you get on with the new one.

Have had this item in my watch list for the past week thought id give it a mention on here too,

Its basically three led's in one,
And monitors the voltage of your car battery,
Its remains green until voltage drops below 12.0V

then it turns yellow until voltage drops below 11.5V
Then it turns red for anything lower.

I had considered purchasing one and fitting to the ST gauge pod bottom centre between the two gauges,

Since ill be fitting two amps to th3 car in spring, there will be a heavy drain on the battery; if listening to the stereo with the engine off,

So having this warning indicator visible on the dash would in theory give early warning of battery drain, leaving enough time to start the engine saving the occupants from becoming immobilised due to a drained battery.

 

how do these work lenny?

 

can they be used on any 12v system to keep an eye on battery level?

Hi mate

 

I have these ones in my car.

http://www.ebay.co.u...=item256d6a72ae

 

They are genuine ford ones and are a little thin but I found that most of the mats I looked at where the same so I went for these and at the price I thought they weren't bad even if you have to replace them in a few years time it wont break the bank lol!

Saying that I have had these now for over a year and they do get heavy use and are still in top form, so for me it was good value. all fittings and fixings come with them and I like the added touch of the "focus" text on the drivers one.

 

hope this helps.  :)
