  1. Possibly blown a fuse? - check the appropriate fuses shown here: https://www.autogenius.info/ford-fiesta-mk6-2008-2017-fuse-box-diagram/ Always worth a try, have you tried disconnecting the battery again, waiting a few minutes and reconnecting?
  2. I've tried it with the default option "BT/VC Phone Interface + USB Connection" but still no backlight on the LCD...
  3. Do you think the new head unit that came with the LCD screen does not match? New head unit label can be seen in below image:
  4. @fgservo Thanks for all them pictures and trying to help me out! Yeh, I think the reason I don't have the extra options for the Touchscreen PID is due to an older wiring loom.
  5. I understand the screen I have isn't the 5 inch Sat Nav screen but must require one of the extra options in the Touchscreen PID. (Probably "Colour MFD 4"?) I've been fiddling around with the following PIDs in the Central Configuration: In Car Entertainment: Changed from "High Level CD (single) and AM/FM radio" to "High Level CD and AM/FM radio Branded" Bluetooth handsfree: Changed from "BT/VC Phone Interface + USB Connection" to "BT/VC + Info + Navigation" Digital Radio Receiver: Changed from "Without Digital Radio System" to "DAB Radio System with PTY EU and ROW" None of this has helped in anyway - nothing changed in terms of display brightness and functionality.... In fact - I've been talking about my issue here: I'm starting to think my car has an incompatible wiring loom.
  6. Yes, I have changed both. If I plug the new LCD and fascia in with my old head unit installed, the stereo won't even turn on... If I plug the new LCD and fascia in with the new head unit, the stereo turns on (AUX does not work, possibly due to incompatible SYNC module, I have the BTVC module, pre -SYNC 1.0) but the LCD has no backlight...
  7. @fgservo I've tried installing the new LCD with my original head unit and with the new head unit. I've installed the new fascia with both head units. When I install the new LCD with the old head unit, nothing happens, the stereo does not turn on. I get a few dashed lines on the top left of the LCD and no backlight. When I install the new LCD with the new head unit, the stereo turns on, the radio and CD works but no AUX (probably due to incompatible SYNC module). The LCD works but with no backlight and the fascia buttons do not light up. I believe I don't have the extra options for the Touchscreen parameter because my car is a pre-facelift model.
  8. Hmmm, I too only have 3 options. My LCD display does not light up when I plug it in - there is no backlight and the lights behind the fascia button do not light up either. I'm thinking this "Touchscreen" parameter needs to be altered for me, it however needs to be changed to "MFD high" or something - not "MFD 5" - I am trying to install the LCD below:
  9. I've been fiddling around with the following PIDs in the Central Configuration: In Car Entertainment: Changed from "High Level CD (single) and AM/FM radio" to "High Level CD and AM/FM radio Branded" Bluetooth handsfree: Changed from "BT/VC Phone Interface + USB Connection" to "BT/VC + Info + Navigation" Digital Radio Receiver: Changed from "Without Digital Radio System" to "DAB Radio System with PTY EU and ROW" None of this has helped in anyway - infact the colour LCD does work with my new head unit but there is no backlight, nor any illumination of the lights behind the fascia buttons. It worked before when I said it does not come on, it does it was just very dark. @fgservo - I don't think that connection is for bluetooth, - since it isn't used with my old head unit which has bluetooth and voice connectivity. I think the reason I have no backlight - is due to the PID: Touchscreen: I need to change it to "MFD high"? I however only have 3 options: 01- Not configured, 02- Without Display, 03- With Display - No Touchscreen. I don't have any other options....!?
  10. Hi Matt, I've received the ELM327 USB adapter and have got to the Central Configuration (main) window. I will probably play around with installing the new Sony head unit this weekend. I'm still not certain what parameter I need to alter in the central configuration though. I have attached a print screen of the two parameters that I probably need to change but I would like to get some clarification.. if anyone knows? Is it (with Sony Head unit installed): Digital Radio Receiver: Value 02 - DAB Radio System with PTY EU and ROW In Car Entertainment: Value 14 - High level CD and AM/FM Radio Branded ?
  11. 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. Link to my post:
  12. Ok, once my ELM327 lead comes I will update a setting in the Central Configuration - if I can find the relevant parameter. However, I have just tried using the new LCD. Similar to what is shown in pic below. It seems if I install the new LCD in my old head unit then the stereo doesn't even turn on! If I install the old LCD in the new head unit I get a frozen screen (as described above). If I install the new LCD in the new head unit, the stereo turns on (I can hear it) (AUX does not work though, the button doesn't do anything, possibly because of incompatible SYNC module with head unit) but no display! - LCD does not turn on at all. Do you think the reason for no display on the LCD is only due to the configuration set in the BCM i.e. I've just gotta change a setting using Forscan?
  13. Are you having trouble removing the positive terminal? If so, just remove the nut on the right side of the terminal (on your first picture) with a 10mm spanner or socket. This should loosen the terminal connection, just wiggle and slide off. However, please note, if you are disconnecting the battery, always remove the negative terminal first. This is to prevent the car from being grounded - if the negative terminal was still attached and you bridged a connection between the positive terminal and a grounding point on the car (any bare metal of the car) you could cause a short circuit and damage something.
  14. Has the aux and phone lights on the display (the logos on the left side of the display) stopped illuminating when the radio is turned on? I had that problem when I pulled the bluetooth module fuse and put it back in (fuse 21 on a type 1 fuse box mk7 fiesta). What seemed to fix the problem was disconnecting the battery, waiting a few minutes and connecting it back up.
  15. Does anyone know if it is possible to upgrade a Bluetooth / voice control module (see photo below of module) to a SYNC 1.1 D1BT? I guess I would have to upgrade the head unit aswell.. but do you reckon the connections are the same? I believe this module is pre-SYNC 1.0. (my car is a 61 reg Fiesta Zetec 1.25 btw)
