Replacing the Head Unit and Stereo in Fiesta MK7

Recommended Posts

Hi there, recently got a 2011 Fiesta, however it's a Zetec and has got the stereo without bluetooth. I'd like to upgrade it to the Sony stereo and upgrade the head unit/screen. My question is: if I bought the parts and swapped them all out, what else would need to be done; i.e. would the ECU need to modified and if so, can anyone recommend somewhere that will do it.

 

Thanks in advance,

Matt

Activiating using Forscan. Literally ticking a box. Plenty of guides in here.

Cheers, would you be able to link me to one? I can’t seem to find one. 

Thanks,

Matt

Hi Matt,

I'm about to do the same. I have bought the Sony head unit with LCD screen. My current head unit in my Fiesta Zetec 1.25 61 reg has bluetooth, so maybe a bit different. I'm waiting to receive the ELM327 cable so I can update using Forscan. I will let you know how I get on.

I've been told you may have to upgrade your SYNC module, I have purchased a SYNC 1.1 (Serial No. beginning in D1BT-)

I currently have a bluetooth/ voice connectivity module (pre- SYNC 1.0). (See my post for pics) I don't know if the connections are the same, so not sure if it is plug and play...

Do you know if you have a connector to accept a SYNC 1.1 module? It is located near passenger fusebox, just above the passenger footwell.
