      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. Head Unit Fried?

    Thanks Luke, where would i test the voltage to make sure too much isn't getting through? On the battery?
  2. Head Unit Fried?

    Thanks very much Benedict, I've ordered a second hand one but I'll do some checks before i plug it in
  3. Head Unit Fried?

    My car has had some electrical issues and made a bad burning smell the other day. I've taken the head unit out today and the smell is definitely coming from in the head unit. Is it possible for a head unit to spontaneously fry its own components or is there a bigger issue that has caused this? My car is 2005 Mk2 Ford Focus with the sony 6000CD head unit.
  4. Hi, I was driving home the other night and my radio stopped working, interior light for the hazard button wouldn't work and the warning lights for airbags and drivers seat belt warning lights came on the dash. There was also a plastic burning smell, like there had been surge in the wires which had caused the plastic coating to melt. I drove the car yesterday on a short journey and all of the electrical faults were gone apart from the radio which still wasn't working although there is now a clicking noise coming from the fuse box although I have checked all the fuses and none of them have blown. Today I have taken a few interior panels and the head unit out to see if I can find any burnt wires but without any success. Has this happened to anyone else or does anyone have any advice? My goal is to find the issue so I can get it fixed professionally. Thanks
