Newbie Returning To Ford

20 August 2013 - 03:59 PM

As title I've had a few fords during my driving days (1993 fiesta, 2000 focus 1.8 Ghia, 2001 Maverick 2.0 GLT) but its been a few years (bit of a Volvo convert couple of T4's and a T5), although my last car was a semi ford was a Volvo S40 T5 or a posh Focus ST as I called it. I loved it all the toys full leather, remapped to 255-260bhp, very nice sleeper car. But unfortunately due to a redundancy and my new job being around 30 miles a day as opposed to 60 miles a week in my old job the T5 had to go. So here's the new ride a 59 Reg Mondeo TDCi 140BHP and I have to say I'm impressed it drives really well, handles very well for a big car, and has most the things I could need (miss the heated leather and the xenons from my T5), its not fast but has enough poke for now, although I have a remap planned for next month. Anyway I got it standard and so far I have had the wheels powder coated (Prestige Hartleppol did an amazing job) in dark anthracite, added a plain grill (thanks dohboy78) and wrapped the chrome bonnet accent, only things left are a half leather interior (if I can get one at a decent price) and the remap.


Sorry should say I would add photo's if I could work out how the use img or url's don't work?





Bluetooth Woes After Changing Stereo

08 August 2013 - 08:26 AM

Right my Mondeo came supplied with a 6000 CD single CD, I was able to pair my phone and use the Bluetooth without issues, I then changed this stereo for a sony 6 CD unit from a focus, swap went fine and got the CD all plugged in and working. Only issue  is the Bluetooth now will not work, there are no phones listed to debond, when I try to connect my phone can see ford audio and when I go to connect I get asked for a pin, on the old 6000 unit at this point the radio would display a pairing code (I think the new CD is meant to do the same), but the new CD doesn't display a number and just say no phones connected. I had the Bluetooth module out last night (what a fun job that is especially if you a biggish bloke!) left is disconnected, as expected my phone couldn't pick up a ford audio device, but the CD player behaved in exactly the same way. Anyway plugged the Bluetooth back in hoping the unplugging would reset it, but no difference, is the fact the new CD is out of a focus an issue?? could I need a different Bluetooth module??


Details from CD are (prob not in correct order)

05 04 02

Radio KW 4

BL_02 05 44

CD.30.06 L

08 06 2007

FB 6

EQ 06




And the Bluetooth details are novero anatel and the Ford part no is 8m5t 19g488AM


I can't even plugged the old CD back in as I'm waiting for the V5 to come back so I can get the code off ford :-(



Changing To Leather Interior Question Re Non Elctric To Electric

27 July 2013 - 10:00 PM

As title I've just purchased a 2009 mondeo with a cloth interior and only electric height movement on the drivers seat, I've seen a full leather interior local, only thing is the leather seats are fully electric with heated seats, obviously the heated seat won't work but if I fitted the seats would the electric movement feature work, would the swap be plug and play or would it need rewiring??
