In Topic: Ipod Nano Not Working On Aux Socket On Fiesta

19 April 2012 - 11:45 AM

Figured this out with mine, the iPod has a built in FM tuner which seems to be always active, this causes a feedback loop with the cars FM tuner when plugging a cable into the iPod headphone socket and car AUX in socket as the iPod headphone socket acts as an aerial for the iPod's FM tuner (thus causing the hiss).

I bought a dock connector to headphone socket plug off eBay for a couple of quid, as the iPod's dock connector is not used as an aerial the hiss doesn't occur :)

Something like this does the trick:-

I cannot say for certain but I believe you would need to upgrade those too.

Thanks, not having much luck on eBay finding a seller who knows the difference between the 2 units!

Bumping this thread as 2 of those part numbers were wrong. Have included the correct ones now Posted Image

This looks interesting, do these parts work with the basic 6 button headunit without the nice matrix display? Or would I need to update that also as part of the retrofit?

These above show where the mounting arm is fitted after removing the rear section of the centre console, the metal plate you can see in the second photo is removed and replaced with the base of the armrest.

The good thing about this arm is it doesn't involve any drilling or !Removed! into the existing plastics.

Also, had a drive around with it today, you can use the handbrake without having to move the armrest but obviously it does get in the way a little - just use a bit of common sense!

In order to use the handbrake you need to lift the armrest up, which is no problem as you're only going to be using the handbrake when you've come to a stop anyway (unless you think you're a rally driver!). I'm sure that's the same on some factory fit armrests too, so I don't see it as an issue or anything.

Having said that I've not driven it since installing it, so maybe I'll see how I go on with the armrest down :)
