Bluetooth issue

Hi all, I have a Mk2.5 focus which was originally fitted with a blaupunkt travelpilot fx satnav unit which recently failed. It has USB and bluetooth etc... 

I have just picked up a Sony CD player (non DAB version) and having issues with connecting to bluetooth. My phones see the Ford Audio device, and tries to connect but wants a PIN. I think it should show me the pin on the stereo but nothing. Any ideas? Is the bluetooth module I got to new?

Did you install the correct type of radio?

GEN2 and GEN3 Sony radio's look identical from the outside but are technically different. If you accidently installed a GEN2 Sony radio the Bluetooth/Voicecontrol will not work. GEN2 Sony radio's are based on the older 1st generation Bluetooth/Voicecontrol system and do not support USB.

The difference between a GEN2 and GEN3 Sony radio can be determined by the part number of the radio and in some cases also by the production date of the radio.

The date on the unit is usually the expiration sale date. 

The production date is 5 Years earlier. A radio with a Sept 12 date is usually produced in 2007.

The bluetooth module which was already in my car is 8M5T-19C112-AS this has been working in my Focus with my old FX unit. I brought a Sony CDX-5F611 (P/N VP6M2F-18C821-AG) and believe it came from a Focus. it has a date of 28.09.2007 on it and my Focus is a Mk2.5 2011 model

Production date 28-09-2007 is 100% certain a GEN2 Sony radio. The GEN3 Sony radio's were introduced in 04-2008.

Being a GEN2 Sony radio it is not compatible with your Bluetooth/Voicecontrol module. GEN2 radio's are based on the older 1st generation Bluetooth/Voicecontrol system while your car has the newer 2nd generation Bluetooth/Voicecontrol system.


If you want to keep this GEN 2 Sony radio and make the bluetooth phone functionality work you have to install a 1st generation Bluetooth/Voicecontrol module and modify the wiring to the 1st generation pinout. However the 1st generation Bluetooth/Voicecontrol system does not support USB or bluetooth Audio.
