      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.

    yes indeed it was yourself that the guide i seen, top notch. if you scroll a bit further down: The following vehicles are supported with Steering Controls: Ford Focus : 1998 to 2005 Ford Galaxy : 2000 to 2006 Ford Mondeo : 2000 to 2003 I also gave him my details ie make model etc and the stereo it was fitting into. i'll have a look in the morning whilst the misses is working and see if indeed there are any loose wires etc, will get a picture of the routing/ colors of the wires to see if there a difference to yours. come to think of it i remeber the plastic connectors didnt quite look like they would go together, ive pm'ed the company to see if there are different connections. thanks for that, will try in the morning.

    Hi folks, newbie to the forum and indeed driving a ford, having been an avid vauxhall driver im so glad to have made the jump from 2005 astra h 1.6 to 2000 focus 1.6 lx, the drive is so much sweeter. dont ask me why or how. best decision i ever made reguarding cars. anyhoo, i transplanted the pioneer avh-2400bt from my astra used this kit:http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/290468712580?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1497.l2649 i can get power to the unit no problem, wired it all in didnt have memory so swapped the red and yellow wires around, perfect after that. only i cannot get the stalk controls to work, i seen in the guide to fitting aftermarket head unit that there was a sequence to fitting the harness ie: fit harness to stereo then fit jack to stereo then connect harness to the patch lead, i only seen this guide after fitting and never done it in this order, would this be the problem? or any other ideas? also as well i dont fancy paying 50 quid for the fascia kit is there a good guide to modding your own or know where i can get the fascia cheaper? sorry for the long post and many thanks....... :)
