  1. to get satnav you would need to go aftermarket and it isn't cheap look to spend around £150 for all the adaptors / trim pieces plus the cost of the aftermarket radio sat nav.
  2. Connect2 supply all the necessary adaptors included in the kit separately . You are then free to buy nicer looking trim pieces from elsewhere. Dab is rock solid with a good antenna. Try Kinetic DRA-6001DAB/DAB+/FM/SW/MW/LW car aerial coverage is excellent even picking up stations outside the official coverage area.
  3. the bluetooth module has a battery to preserve settings. if that battery has gone flat that sounds like either a fuse as said above or a loose connection. as far as i know the battery should charge whenever the vehicle is running and last for many weeks between charge check all the cables to the bluetooth module located in the passenger footwell roof and all the connections to the radio.
  4. Could be wrong but I thought both the 100 and 125 boost to 15psi to give an effective compression ratio of almost 20:1
  5. A squirt of WD-40 on the hinge of each mirror is good to prevent freezing.
  6. If there the premium contact 2 they have primary and secondary tread the secondary tread is shallower than the primary tread but are still road legal as long as the primary tread is 1.6mm
  7. You will need an aftermarket radio for that can be done but isn't cheap. Cost around £130 for the adaptors plus the cost of the radio plus fitting if you can't do it yourself
  8. Fitting a rated tyres instead of g rated can save 80 litres of fuel over 10,000 miles so worth checking the tyre label befour purchase. As it can save quite a lot of money over the tyre life
  9. is a roof mounted carrier definitely ruled out? it is in my opinion the best solution for the fiesta and gives you options for the future. transporting a double mattress for example or fitting a roof box to name 2.my bike is 17kg and it goes on no problem and nobody would call me a strong person. the trick is to pick the bike up with both hands and place it on the rack then hold it there with one hand (no weight as its on the rack) then swivel the retaining arm in to place and lock. the rack can be left in place all the time if you wish without restricting access to the car. a boot mounted bike carrier would need to be removed when not in use would reduce rear vision when in use you will probably also need light board and number plate to avoid unwanted attention from police
  10. May be worth getting the battery tested as a dying battery can cause some weird electrical errors to pop.
  11. Aftermarket is your only option. It will cost around £150 for all the adaptors so the new radio will play nice with the car plus the cost of the radio. But you will have more options and features than the standard. Below is a photo of an aftermarket touchscreen to give an idea of what it will look like
  12. That my theory out then thought it could be battery saver set to zero but if they don't work with engine running door open it can't be that.
  13. do the lights come on if you open the door with the engine running?
