  1. Can anyone shed some light on this???? My stereo just stopped working today?? All the fuses are ok and I have unplugged the unit and plugged it back in again but still it's dead. Even If I turn my lights on the unit doesn't light up. I also checked that its getting power via a test light...all ok?? I guess it's the head unit but has anyone had one of these repaired because they are not cheap :(
  2. Blaupunkt Ls Rns Stopped Working Today?

    I've never solved the problem with the voice control but my head unit works perfect, I do miss the voice control. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  3. Had a flat battery a few weeks back so I decided to check for fault codes today and found code A103.....What fault is this please?? It cleared OK but wasn't sure what has caused it.
  4. Focus Fault Code A103 - Help!!

    I don't think you have anything to worry about as my code never came back ....but my Bluetooth hasn't worked since? Probably not linked?? Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  5. Clean Inside Of Headlights

    I know this is a very old post but did you manage to clean the headlights?.... I have the same issue.
  6. I need to buy a bluetooth module for my 2008 focus as I suspect my one is faulty but I'm not sure if the one I've seen second hand will work in my car. According to the seller it was taken from a 2011 fiesta (PART NUMBER IS 8M5T-19C112-AT) but it will fit my 2008 focus apparently??? Is that true??? I thought it wasn't as easy as that. Also is there a test I can do on my old module to be sure it's finished? Thanks.

    Cheers for the info mate....I will check the CMAX out.
  14. Replacing Front Sidelights Annoying

    I never managed to break mine but I must admit the first time I changed them really annoyed the hell out of me. I also found the hole that the bulb goes through seems very small ......had to find a smaller LED in the end.
  15. My New Graphite Mondeo

    Hello. Yes I will probably have to go for a Mondeo Titanium x with a few extra miles ....and as you say the Focus seem to fetch a fair bit of money and they sell all day.... I've been offered £6400 from the UPS driver that comes to my work and he is happy to wait for when I'm ready to sell in August (Second car!!) , Just hope he can really wait. I've never really had a look at a CMAX but it looks like you wasn't too keen on them.
  16. My New Graphite Mondeo

    I find that the Focus feels small inside for a guy of my size (6ft 3) ..... I feel I'm sitting on top of the car if you know what I mean lol. I also find the ride to be a little harsh at times even though I'm on 16 inch rims. I know most cars these days can be harsh but I thought with the 16 inch wheels It would be OK. I had a Mondeo for 8 years prior to the Focus and found it to be a great car.....never let me down once. Other than that the Focus is a really nice car, Just maybe not for a lump like me lol, I will be looking to buy a Mondeo around August time if I can afford it.
  17. My New Graphite Mondeo

    Very nice car. I wanted the Mondeo but I ended up buying the Focus Titanium, Just wish I hadn't now.
  18. Fx Satnav (Non Touch Screen) 2009

    Oh ok.....Since my unit failed I've heard of so many others failing. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  19. Fx Satnav (Non Touch Screen) 2009

    That is a great piece of information, I'm gonna check out my old unit ......Funny how this information is never relayed to us by the dealers. Thanks mate Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  20. Fx Satnav (Non Touch Screen) 2009

    OK cool, I'm sure the connectors would be available if not.
  21. Fx Satnav (Non Touch Screen) 2009

    Looks great. Does it use the same connectors?
  22. Fx Satnav (Non Touch Screen) 2009

    Do you have a link/picture of the unit you are buying please. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC
  23. Fx Satnav (Non Touch Screen) 2009

    My satnav head unit packed up a week or so ago, Just wouldn't turn on when I started the car in the morning. I checked all the fuses and removed the battery cables to see if it needed a reset but no luck. I found the same type of satnav on ebay for £200 so got lucky really because they cost a packet.....Anyway best of luck mate.
  24. Is it normal for the focus to have creaking interior trim? My car seems very bad over bumps today....possible weather conditions???? My old 2002 Mondeo didn't have one creak that I can remember. Thanks
  25. Window Switch Bulbs, Ford Focus

    Has anyone changed the window switch bulbs on a 2008 Focus? If so is it an easy job or a pig? Noticed one not working yesterday. Thanks.
