  1. Hi all, Just fitted the complete Sony satnav system form a 2012 Focus Titanium X (display,audio, buttons facia, satnav card) and a Fakra gps off Amazon into my 2012 Focus Titanium that had the Sony system without satnav. I'm not getting any sound/verbal commands while using the nav. I've read some posts I've seen in the forum but I'm struggling to know exactly what else I'm missing? The two audio wires.... no idea what they look like, where they go or if I can buy them on the internet? The Fakra antenna cable between the display and the audio unit. This cable is needed for TMC reception... can someone help with a link to buy an appropriate one please? Do I need to do anything in Forscan? Thankyou all

  3. I just fitted the Sony display, audio unit and front button panel from a 2012 Focus Titanium X (sat nav) into my 2012 Focus Titanium (Sony non sat nav) with a fakra gps off amazon. All working, 5 satellites but no sound/verbal commands through speakers whilst using satnav. Am I supposed to do something in Forscan? I have it and an elm. What/where are the two wires?? Thanks for any help please
  4. Hi, hoping someone with audio knowledge can advise. I have the Sony premium, 9 speaker system (doesn't have navigation) in my car presently. Thinking of putting in a double din Kenwood DNX5180dab. The audio spec on it is 4x50watt. 1. Is the Kenwood audio output equal to, less than or more than the Sony in my car? 2. Will all the 9 speakers output sound if I install the Kenwood? 3. Will I lose functionality of the USB port in the centre armrest? 4. Anything else I should know? Thanks for any help guys.
  5. Hi.. I did a static regeneration on my 62 plate Titanium with 64000 miles on my drive today for the first time since I bought the car recently. Tunnelratelectronics elm with FORScan... engine revs at approx 2600 rpm for 50mins then says 100% complete. I understand this doesn't fix the dpf filling up with soot just burns it down a little. I have a stainless plate ready to blank off the egr.. when I fit it, should I expect an eml light to come up on the cluster display? Will my car still run normally or will it go into limp mode straight away? I can delete the egr fault code with forscan for now until I can afford a remap to remove the egr/dpf from the ECU once I gut the internals of the dpf?
  6. Hi isetta, could you recommend a link to a good fault code reader? Thanks
  7. Hi, I've got a 62 plate Focus Titanium with 64000 miles on it. If I take the dpf off, cut it open, gut the internals, reweld back up, grind the welds smooth.. do I need to do anything else like software/ECU, it will run happily along as normal? Where do I cut into the dpf?I'm looking at the Spider Anachrid on the fly box at a later date.
  8. Hi James, interestingly the Australia Focus 2012 Titanium has the same Sony facia with nav as in my 2012 Titanium (no nav in mine). You mentioned I need a slightly different Sony facia? Confused now 🙈 https://www.caradvice.com.au/142416/2012-ford-focus-sport-titanium-now-standard-with-satellite-navigation/
  9. Thanks James, I'm afraid to go spending till I know what to search for and buy 🙈
  10. Hi James, thankyou very much for your help! Please do, the part numbers would be most helpful. Regarding the different Sony facia, would you have a link to a photo of it and do I retain the sound quality of my existing Sony? Cheers, Chris.
  11. Hello James, excellent guide! I have the same car as you, a 62 plate Focus 1.6 TDCi Titanium (not X) with the Sony 9 speaker system but without navigation. I've spent most of the day reading so many how to guides it's fried my brain! I only want to have navigation in my car with my existing Sony but not upgrade to sync 1,2, 3 etc Do I need just the screen from a 2012 Titanium to accomplish this? The screen above my Sony in my car doesn't have the sd card slot. In my armrest box behind the handbrake there isn;t an sd card slot either. Here is my actual stereo in my car. Please help with what I need to get/to do? Cheers
