I Don't Have Usb Port. Can I Still Update?

Recommended Posts

I am lookin to update my zetec s' radio system! But I can't do it myself at home because it doesn't have a USB port.

I was wondering what are my options? Will my ford garage be able to update it for me?

Has anyone else got the same problem?

Any suggestions would be great!

Cheers,

Kyle

Only a Ford dealer can do it for you I'm afraid. Will most likely try and charge you if the vehicle is 12+ months old.

Having had software updates on various pieces of electronics (Tomtom Satnav and Hitachi PVR) that turned out to be downgrades, I am very careful now to make sure any upgrade has been proved to be an improvement on the software already installed. Before you get your radio updated check out the advantages and disadvantages of the update. As I say, If it ain't broke don't fix it! :wacko:

So true !! That's a maxim I have learned the hard way over many years but still need reminding of !!

Na mate unfortunately not. As far as I knew the only way to update it was via ids. I didn't know you could do it with a USB stick?

Just to clarify you are trying to update radio yea?

Finally no I don't have keyless start :(.

Follow my guide but instead of turning key to position 2 you press the engine start button (without foot on clutch)
