      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. Hi, I drive an S-Max 08 plate which has 7000 miles on the clock. I've had it a week. Everything was working fine up until yesterday. Yesterday afternoon, I noticed that there were items missing from the menu in the display behind the steering wheel. The only options on this menu are 'Trip computer' and 'Settings'. All media functions are not listed, (cd, radio, phone and aux). Previously all of these were options in the menu and I could scroll through them with the steering wheel buttons. The radio thinks it is working fine and I can swap between these media functions using the switches next to the radio, although they do not play and no sound comes out. My phone connects to the bluetooth fine, and the radio displys, 'blackberry 9300 ready' and when I make a call, the handset believes itself to be connect and I can't hear anything through the handset, however, still no sound as the car isn't transferring this to the speakers. The scrolling buttons on the wheel are working fine and I can toggle between 'trip computer' and all its sub-menus and 'settings' and its sub-menus, but no other options exist. The cruise control works fine also. I have checked the sound is turned up. I have turned the car on and off, left it over night, turned it on again, turned the radio on and off and gone through basic problems solving solutions that usually work, but it still seems to have its knickers in a twist. Before I disconnect the battery and set it all up again, I wondered if anyone could tell me if there is something very simple that could have caused this and how I can fix it. I'm booked in in a week to take it back to the garage, but no choons in the car for that length of time is a sad commute to work. Any help gratefully appreciated. Cheers Miriam p.s other than this, I'm loving my S-Max.
