Did you try deleting the pairing from both the phone and the car, then re-pairing them? That would be the first step in trying to resolve it.

Yes, I have tried everything, first deleted iphone pairing from ford audio then deleted ford audio from iphone then repaied.
It does repair to the car audio as I can search phone book look at missed calls in or last calls out but no GSM signal icon which was in the bottom lefthand corner on the screen and when you make a call to the iphone the phone vibrates and the car audio lowers the radio volume but does not pass the call to the ford audio.
This all worked perfect on IOS 4.3.5 is there a downgrade for the iphone from 5 to 4.3.5 ?
I rang apple to ask this and was told no, basiclly go away !!! the phone is only 4 months old and worked until this upgrade, it must be the IOS 5 update as other people are all reporting bluetooth issues with car integration ?

There is no supported way to downgrade iOS.
I would contact Ford and see if they have an update available, or planned for the in-car system. This happened when iOS 4 came out as well. I don't know about Ford, but Chrysler and several other manufacturers issued software updates for their in-car systems to support iOS 4 about a month after it was released.
