Sorry Guys, but am in a particularly bad mood!
I hate Ford and everything to do with it. The cars suck and are a POS, the service outlets here are rip offs and Corporate Ford here is the mother of all evils, 0 sensitivity to customers.
Gave the POS for servicing and fixing the A/c. Removed the face plate of the p-880 before giving the car in cause the damn w/shop always fiddled with the settings when I left the face plate in.
Got the car back today with a bill of $ 650, so from work asked the wife to write a check. Got home late and decided to go down and hook up the stereo. Tried to fit the face plate and it wouldn't fit. Took a minute to realise that the damn hu was upside down. So ok pulled it out put it right side up fixed the face plate..........and it wouldn't switch on. Opened up the chassis and tested with a voltmeter. The motherboard is shorted out. Took a flash light to see what else is wrong and discovered that the SR mids have neat little holes through them.
Putting a stop payment on the cheque for a start........the rest I will handle tmrw.
Suggestions welcome. Value loss.........$ 550 for the hu and $ 800 for the speakers. So even if I stop the cheque I'm still out $ 700.
