Do Not Sell My Personal Information

New Member - Cardiff

Hi all,

So I just bought my third Focus yesterday, having previously owned a 1999 1.6 Petrol Zetec and a 2003 1.8 TDCi Sport, I have now got a 2010 1.6 TDCi Zetec. Unfortunately, driving it home to Cardiff late last night from CarGiant (near Wembley) I have discovered a couple of faults and wondered whether anyone can offer any advice. It's going to be a nightmare trying to get fixes from CarGiant as a) they were decidedly unhelpful to begin with so I'm not expecting any kind of good after-sales advice, and B) it's a !Removed! long way to go.

The first is the radio - it keeps cutting out. Randomly, sometimes for a few seconds, sometimes for a few minutes. It has a constant source of power as it remembers the date / time / last station, but then simply cuts out (by this I mean display off, sound off... basically off!) I'm wondering what the best thing I can do is to diagnose the problem. It is a single CD - KW2000.

The other problem is the interior light, pushing it to the '0' setting makes it come on permanently, whilst putting it the switch to '1' turns it off. When left in neutral I envisaged it should turn on/off automatically when the doors open / close, but it just remains stubbornly off.

Be grateful for any assistance.

Many thanks,

Hi and welcome to FOC.

We do not allow radio code requests on here so I have removed this part of your post.

As you have posted in the Introductions forum, if you do not have much luck in getting your questions answered, try asking them in the Focus forum otherwise a member of staff can move this one there for you.

Please note that as of 21/12/11 new rules have come into effect on FOC.

Radio Codes is now a banned subject - new posts on the subject will be
closed without warning as will older, resurrected posts. Repeated
requests for a code may result in a warning.

The supply of codes on the forum is now prohibited and will be dealt with in the same way as any other breach of the rules.

Please note this also applies to Private Messages - requests for codes and the issuing of codes is prohibited.

If you require a code for your radio - please consult your Ford Dealer for advice.
