  1. So I’d be better to replaced the head unit. oh well I’ll keep this one for now while I look for another
  2. The bluetooth module which was already in my car is 8M5T-19C112-AS this has been working in my Focus with my old FX unit. I brought a Sony CDX-5F611 (P/N VP6M2F-18C821-AG) and believe it came from a Focus. it has a date of 28.09.2007 on it and my Focus is a Mk2.5 2011 model
  3. The headunit I picked up says it is a sept 12 unit. CDX-5F611
  4. Hi all, I have a Mk2.5 focus which was originally fitted with a blaupunkt travelpilot fx satnav unit which recently failed. It has USB and Bluetooth etc... I have just picked up a Sony CD player (non DAB version) and having issues with connecting to bluetooth. My phones see the Ford Audio device, and tries to connect but wants a PIN. I think it should show me the pin on the stereo but nothing. Any ideas? Is the bluetooth module I got to new?
  5. Hi all, just got my wife a mk3 focus with sync2 installed. Got everything she wanted except the reverse camera. I know hot to retro fit a camera as I did the install on my 2017 Kuga, but what I not sure is if and where I can get any mating connectors to fit into the APIM connection block. Anyone able to help?

  6. Here we have my wives 2010 Ford Ka 1.2 Zetec in blue. 26k miles from new and will be sold with 12 Months MOT. It comes with colour coded from grill, white side strips and front/rear DMB gel overlays. Very economical 1.2 petrol engine, and only £30 a year TAX. Ideal town or first car being cheap to run and insure. Located Colchester, Essex Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. From what I've found yes, but you can still have your iPhone connected via Bluetooth for calls etc... The other annoying thing with it all, and a few friends with Sync 3 also find this on their iPhones is the ringer volume always goes to high every time you connect via Bluetooth Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Not sure on the front camera this method, but there are 3rd party units for multiple feeds Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Yep, CarPlay does overright the Sync3 functions Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. The Sync 2 and 3 are the same pin outs, so most of the Sync 2 details online work. I have made an extension loom from a plug from a smashed up focus st with sync2 and a loom I brought from the US to allow after market installs. Family member picked it up for $15. From pins 14 & 15 I have broken out to a RCA connector for use with a camera. The loom has been installed and a RCA extension has been ran to rear of the Kuga. I need to get my laptop out to enable reverse camera and pick a camera to install Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Having enquired about remaps for the Kuga 1.5 tdci, it would appear no one has done any work on them yet, but managed to get a discounted rate on a bluefin unit to test the Focus 1.5 tdci mapping works on mine. Received it during the week and installed it yesterday, and it decently makes a different. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Hi all, looking at fitting a towbar to my Kuga, but just need some confirmation for parts. I know i need wiring kit 2014049 And I guess the tow module 2033503, but is it needed just for a simple 12N connected trailer still? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. First job was to keep the floor clean so along with the included floor mats I also managed to get the dealership to include a boot liner saving me another £50 Next was to make better use of the SYNC 3 stereo and CarPlay. Having got fed up with my iPhone rolling around I managed to get hold of a Brodit active holder cheap off eBay and a Cmax vehicle bracket (same as the Kuga) Then ran a lighting cable under the console trim back to the 2 USB ports in the armrest Got a little tidy up job but will sort out after I get the shutter covering the cup holders replacement Monday as it has a couple of issues rolling back.
