      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. Dead Satnav/stereo In Focus Mk2

    Thanks Thomas, the dealer tells me that this recall doesn't apply to our car though. Worth a try though! Thanks Ian, I'll search the forum to see if anyone has installed one of these on a model like ours, might be our best bet.
  2. Dead Satnav/stereo In Focus Mk2

    Thanks for such a quick response Thomas, I'll check the dealer tomorrow and let you know how I get on.
  3. I'm looking for advice to either fix or replace the stereo/satnav in my 58 plate Focus mk2 (see pic of the stereo - it has the 'oval' shape). The whole stereo unit recently stopped working - nothing on the display (not even the clock), unresponsive to all buttons. Two days later I returned to the car to find the battery was completely flat, Ford replaced the battery and told me the stereo was 'broken' and would cost £1000 to replace with a new unit or £450 if I'd accept a reconditioned unit. That's far more than I'm prepared to spend so I'm looking for options. 1) Is it likely the stereo fault can be fixed? I know I'm clutching at straws here. 2) Failing that, any suggestions for a replacement? I don't want to spend more than £250, so accept that satnav might be out, but would be nice to retain the steering wheel controls and auxiliary in. Thanks!
