      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. Default setting ?

    I have a Sony radio and when I have been listening either to something via the auxiliary input or USB connections and I switch off the engine and get out the radio automatically stops, which is fine. But when I get in and start the engine the radio comes on but it has gone to a radio channel. I have not had this happen with my previous two Fords which also had a Sony radio. Is there a setting that I have missed which would stop this happening.
  2. If the dealers worth their salt, and especially as it was where you bought it from they ought to fix it, and only charge you for any new part. As it is so random it sounds like a loose connection to me.
  3. Sync2 Satnav Upgrade

    I have installed the new SD card and it all works OK. It was sold as a 2017 card, but bearing in mind lead time for manufacturing etc, how up-to-date should it be, surely it cannot include all the new roads which were given names in 2017, it must be some sort of release date/year.
  4. Focus Mk3 System Update

    I seem to remember it saying this in the Ford Handbook that came with the car. In my car, with the Sony head unit, the option is there but under texts it says 'empty', but there many texts in my phone, so I have assumed that O2 don't support that option.
  5. Disable Seatbelt warning sound.

    Should you want to really weird and wear them, does anyone know why there seems to be no warning if the rear ones are not fastened when there is a rear seat passenger !
  6. Focus Mk3 System Update

    Text reading is also subject to that option being available from your phone provider.
  7. Focus titanium 2012 mobile phone question

    I just noticed that when I stop the engine, have the radio on then open the door a nice, blue, Bluetooth symbol appears next to the battery and signal display for a moment before they all go off, so it seems to me that maybe it was intended to have the Blue Bluetooth symbol was meant to be illuminated when there is a phone connected. Maybe it requires a software update to correct this.
  8. Focus titanium 2012 mobile phone question

    Both my 2011, and the 2014 I have now show a battery symbol and signal strength bars near the bottom right hand corner of the display above the radio head [both Grey coloured]. On my older Focuses there was a very nice blue Bluetooth symbol that to to light up when the phoned automaticity connected when I got in the car. But they seem to have done away with that now. A real shame.
  9. Sync2 Satnav Upgrade

    That's OK then as I must have Sync 1, button controlled. Whilst on the subject of Satnav, whereabouts on the car does it receive it's signal, is it via the aerial on the roof ?
  10. Sync2 Satnav Upgrade

    I have just done some googling and believe that I have this version SYNC (basic system) and SYNC with MyFord® SYNC has a centre display that shows basic information, such as caller ID, song titles, a digital clock, and temperature.
  11. Sync2 Satnav Upgrade

    How can I tell whether it's Sync 1 or 2 ? I have the Sony head unit, with a white sync button at about 10 o'clock towards the centre.
  12. Sync2 Satnav Upgrade

    Thanks for the quick reply, So nothing needs to be switched on simply remove the old one and insert the new one, right ? The pic is the one that I intend to use, OK ?
  13. Sync2 Satnav Upgrade

    I have had a look around this forum but I cannot find what I am looking for. I am looking to upgrade the satnav SD card on a 2014 Ford Focus Tit X Nav to the 2017 version. Please would someone give me a step by step guide on how to do this, what needs to be switched on or off, the unit, ignition, engine etc. I don't want to screw anything up when I do this. Thanks.
  14. HELP What Is Wrong????

    I have had my tracking checked in the past, they used a Laser device but before they did any adjustments they clamped the steering wheel centrally. They fitted things to ALL four wheels, maybe they, someone forgot to clamp the steering wheel first, or they were not properly trained, apparently it is possible to adjust all four wheels !. I would defiantly take it back.
  15. Mystery fitting

    OK, thanks. Should have realised.
