In Topic: Lcd Display Only Shows Trip Computer And Settings - No Ford Audio Displayed

02 April 2014 - 09:52 PM

Ok after many weeks of back and forth, Car Giant replaced the radio. This did not solve the issue. They also replaced the battery as it went flat at one point (possibly unrelated).


They eventually sent it to Ford, who have apparently replaced the whole dashboard!


We then picked it up yesterday and I now see Phone, Radio, iPod features etc. on the dashboard! I also now have voice control which never worked before.


HOWEVER, the last time we turned on the car, we only saw Trip Computer and Settings once again. After turning off car and trying again, everything else showed again. Sometimes it works, other times not.


Looks like it is going back to Ford - has anyone else experienced this behaviour?

Car Giant took a look and confirmed that the radio is faulty and they will be replacing it.


Interestingly on a long journey last night, all the audio feature popped up on the LCD display behind the steering wheel last night, but once that happened, the radio kept turning off and on again. Clearly there is something wrong!


Lets hope the replacement works!

Hi. Thanks for the quick reply!


We bought the car from Car Giant, and I am hoping they can help. 


I tried all the menus and cannot find anything related to Ford audio. I don't think the radio turns off when you lock the door but will check. The display is already set to English.
