Alpine Head Unit-No Clock

10 November 2013 - 09:00 AM

Hi, Moved this from my Focus thread.


Thanks for the info guys. Now have the corect owners guide for the car but
have just recently discovered the issue with the radio/cd unit.  It is
an Alpine CDE-103BT , and although i found a video clip on youtube
showing how to adjust the clock , the clock was only available on U.S.
versions of the unit and not European versions !!  :angry: .  Guess the clue was the fact that the guy in the video clip had an American accent !   :whistling: 


So, apart from buying one of those crappy air vent clip on clocks or one
with a sucker for the screen was now thinking of reverting to the
original Sony 6 cd unit. Sort of trying to track one down but as my car would seem to be in the change over period ( 07/2005) mk2 or 2.5  ?  guess i need to make sure it,s the right unit.


Any ideas ?


Cheers guys

Owners Manual

Hi , Recently bought a 2005 ( 07/2005 ) on a 05 plate Ford Focus 2.0i Ghia.


Trying to locate an original owners manual ( not a downloadable copy ).


How do you establish which genaration the focus is ?


And finally , what happened to the clock !  Is there a clock option to fit ?  I miss not knowing the time.
