Selectable driving modes makes for a lot of fun!


On selecting the audio Aux input and selecting the connected iPod the screen froze completely. The radio continued playing but none of the controls, either dash or steering wheel mounted including the power button, would operate and the screen remained frozen. Even stopping the car and switching everything off had no effect, the screen remained on and frozen! Having exhausted all approaches I was in the process of ringing Ford Assist when the screen reset of its own accord. The 'fault' has not re-occured. Strange!
