      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. Question On Rear Seat Dvd Sound

    I would be very interested to know how you got on as I had this problem at the start. My daughter is now 2 and will ware headphones and as she does my 1 yesr old just plays along. I did however also chase this... Will the volvo guys have a look at the connectors and see?
  2. S-Max 'immobiliser Active'.

    I had this problem as well and my garage tracked it to a faulty internal intrusion detection device that caused a catastrophic electrical failure in the car! A complicated way of saying that one of the sensors has a short and stuffed the car.. Fixed in 3 hours..
  3. smax official trouble topic

    I have a couple of problems I noticed: Updated - 2010-03-26 The satnav crashes out (happened 3 times in 8 months) and the only way to get it working again is to leave the car overnight - fixed after software update The Computer (nav, radio and everything else) system crashes. Requires restart. (happens every couple of weeks) - Fixed after software update Sometimes the power from the acellorator "flutters" at constant speed. (happens every few journies, and requires reboot) - Has not happened after power stering fixed Whining noise from power stearing when turing while moving. - Fixed by dealer after complete failure. Known fault. Service oil notification for "fix at next service" - Fixed at next service Alarm problem notification for "fix at next service" - Fixed by dealer after complete failure (faulty internal intrusion detection device that caused a catastrophic electrical failure). Bluetooth thelephone integration "redial" button never works an always sais "invalid number" - Fixed with software update Bluetooth thelephone integration sometimes fails (requires reboot) - Fixed with software update Bluetooth thelephone integration fails to start "Mobile voice recognition" option. - Fixed with software update I will keep this list updated as I will use it when I take the car in :) Does not stop me loving the car...

  5. S-Max Sync Upgrade

    Will there be a Ford Sync upgrade for the current 2008 model S-Max? I think this would be a good idea, as I have a 7" touchscreen display and the Advanced bluetooth... So Technicaly, it should be as easy as upgrading the OS, but I am sure that there are hardware requirements.... Has Ford though about this?
