I've seen this a few times. The unit needs reprogramming, it seems that there's a corruption somewhere in the radio which can only be fixed by sending away. This is from a Dealers point of view, can't say whether there's a tech geek who might be able to do it...???

have you tried Sony themselves.
They may want to help if only to maintain customer satisfaction with their products

There are two types of Sony head-unit. A single disk, MP3 player or the six disk multi-player.
I bought the MP3 player new from Ford, it then had to be configured to the car by the dealer.
This took about twenty minutes & opened up previous unavailible features such as dimming control, speed control etc.
The clock can be set via RDS or manually, (which I prefer).
Have had no problems since & is a far superior head unit to the cheap & nasty entry level one.

I know you can fit a couple of Sony head units in,but,I have a 12 month old Clarion DXZ668RMP unit in my RangeRover,due to cost of running I wondered if it was possible to have this unit fitted?Also would the hands free on srteering colum work? If not I`ll have to sell the system,shame as it cost over £300 and has fantastic sound.
