Ford Fiesta IPod connection problem

I have just bought a new model fiesta and have connected my IPod via the USB port. Everything seems to connect and set up correctly, playlists etc on the car display, but no volume? Can you help?

    I have the same problem with a new ford focus and the ipod nano. No solution yet

  • lisa_dover Dec 30, 2008

    Thanks, I have just checked this out on ebay, and yes it does seem like I need a specific cable. However, I think that I can probably use the USB connector that I have with the ipod and also an AUX cable as that is basically what the ford cable seems to be. I will give that a go first.

    I have purchased the appropriate cable from Ford to connect my ipod to my new Ford Fiesta and there is still no volume. Am I doing something wrong here?

    I have a new Ford Fiesta with an MP3 connection - I plug in the USB cord to the Ford but there is no sounds. There seems to be an audio socket next to the USB one. What cable do I need to go into this?

    Hi, i am having the same problem - (when i connect my ipod using the usb cable i use when connecting to the computer), it shows the songs etc on the car display but there is no sound. Does anyone know if buying a different cable works?

    I have same problem. does getting a diff cable work?

  • lisa_dover Feb 24, 2009

    I did try the usb Ipod cable again and used the aux cable as well. This seems to work fine now and saves spending £19 on the ford cable. The aux cable i already had, but only cost a couple of quid to buy.

    Hey. I have the same problem. I have a new Fiesta Zetec and use the ford's ipod cable it will play songs etc and with sound howeve it disconnects after about a minte and it takes several go's to get thing connected. Do you think this is a cable problem??

  • sg54000 Apr 03, 2009

    How do you connect the USB part of the cable?? The new cable has the IPOD connection and the the AUX and USB & people are saying you have to plug in the USB connection but where???? I have a brand new Fiesta 2008- with an AUX socket. Help needed!

  • shazp Apr 16, 2009

    I am getting my new car tomorrow, however, did not opt for the USB port
    (silly me), by using the aux socket when you plug in your iphone/ipod,
    does the songs still show up on the screen?

You need the specific cable from Ford, part number 8M5J-19C142-AA, Finis: 1529487 which has a USB and an aux jack. It costs about £19. You need to plug in both aux and USB and then connect the other end to your ipod. You can then scroll through the playlists etc using the dashboard controls. When you have selected your choice, press the OK button and the ipod should play. You can use the steering wheel controls to move forward or back through the tracks and to change the volume. The instructions in the handbook are not very helpful.

Hi, Have you got the correct cable - it's my understanding that you need a specific cable - this link on ebay takes you to a ford main dealer who is selling them online.

I just wanted to let everyone know that I have two ford fiestas and you do not need the split cable, its just a money making thing. I have had my ford for 2 years and use only the USB connection in the car to my iphone and get sound.

The sound when connected via headphone jack to aux input socket on 09 fiesta is crackled and hissing. It's a 6g 8gb nano< works ok with headphones but not in the car. Ford said there is no fault...


Check the cable that you use when connecting to the car...its the only thing that changed. if not the cable then its the jack on the radio. use a different cable or take it to a different radio

Hi I just bought a brand new 2010 Ford Fiesta Zetec and I am having problems with the ipod connection via the usb, It all displays correctly, it shows the name of the song and how long the song has been...


You need an AUX cable in addition to the iPod USB cable. Use both cables, and you will get sound :)

The AUX looks like this: http://www.oriongadgets.com/images/3.5mm-audio-extender-male-to-male-1.jpg
