Bluetooth/usb Issue Repair??

Hi I'm new to the forum and have recently picked up a 2009 zetec s 1.6.

First thing I notice was the bluetooth, aux and USB aren't working.

I have done a bit of research before posting and have tried disconnecting the module an fuses to no avail. I haven't yet tried disconnecting the battery as I don't have the radio code.

However since bluetooth USB modules are like hens teeth is there anyway of repairing the module rather than replacing it.

Does anyone know if its a hardware or software failure?

Did you try unplugging the USB cable from the module (the smaller black wire as opposed to the massive plug)

Can you plug a phone in to see if it gets any power?

Ok so it's either the module or the cable that's at fault

Next cheapest option is to buy something like this - unplug USB from module and replace it with this (for testing purposes)

If it works, your original cable is no good - if it still doesn't work your module has failed.

Well since the Bluetooth isn't working I imagine the module is at fault?

I have a spare cable like that somewhere so I'll give it a try and report back

Almost definitely, just wanted to rule the cable out as it was cheaper than a module :) (rather than doing it in the other order!)

Not that I know of, never opened one up to be fair though. I imagine it's all circuit boards inside so not much the average Joe can do.

Be aware that there are two types of modules, only bluetooth and Bluetooth+USB. There are also different types of USB connectors aswell. You would be better off buying a module with the same partnumber as the old one. They use the same modules on any Ford.
