, I have Ford Mondeo 2.5 Ghia X 4dr first

Customer Question

,

I have Ford Mondeo 2.5 Ghia X 4dr first registered in Jan 2007, but with a 56 number plate
my dvd audio and touch screen does not function properly; when car is started the unit just shows the picture of the telephone and nothing works; it takes about 30 minutes or so of driving until the radio / dvd / telephone suddenly are functioning; it may switch off and on automatically again in unpredictable intervals before it stabilizes; but whenever I switch the car off, the same happens again
the Ford garage in St Albans did not want to touch the unit
I was wondering if it is just a loose end and whether the unit could be repaired and/or exchanged with a unit that also supports USB / Bluetooth connection
Many thanks

I'd say that there's an internal fault with the unit as they were never that reliable and a replacement with a more modern double DIN unit is going to be the most inexpensive repair

You can get a new plastic trim to surround the unit and make neat installation

I'd suggest gettign ini touch with a stereo specialist to ensure that you get the right unit and the correct conversion cable

this shop should be local to you
