    Not sure what the deal with the 'Q' reg vehicles is!
  3. help focus driving me up the wall

    Maybe a dodgy sensor or something along those lines? Just a suggestion if all is actually fine with the engine. Something could be sending false information. I'm no expert obviously, I have my own issues with my car lol.
  4. Steering Wheel Angle Sensor

    I put it down to the working range of the steering wheel angle sensor - probably just the accuracy of it. The click/whirr is a standard thing when turning and hitting a bump by the sounds of things. Never investigated it as system otherwise appears to work fine.
  5. I'm planning to build in the remote control into the car. Think it's gonna be a nice project. Have a transponder, gonna strip it and mount the print between roof and cover, as close as possible to the screen. Push button.....see pic ( between center console and floor console

  7. Blower settings

    I have noticed that the a/c only works (light comes on switch) on setting 1, 2 and 3 but goes off on setting 4. Could it be a/c related? I'm really hoping it's something quick and easy, I mean how can something work fine when you get out of the car and then not work when you get back in 10 minutes later?
  8. Hey Is the member that owns that rs here :-) If not can i leave a leaflet about membership under there wiper ? Jamie

  11. help focus driving me up the wall

    Where to start, 3 weeks ago my 1.6 diesel focus TDCI went in to limp mode... took it to the garage and codes read DPF filter, i had i chemically flushed and all was well. yesterday went into limp mode again displaying Engine systems fault, so back to the garage. the mechanic who i know is very experienced and trustworthy ran another diagnostic this time dpf, power steering, battery and alternator codes have came up, he has check these faults and they are all fine, he seems to think this could be a software problem or a wiring issue, i told him i did not want to spent hundreds on this car valuved at £1000 so he advised me to fined a mechanic who will fiddle around with the software and maybe to BLOCK the codes from coming up and sending it into limp mode. and thoughts and advice would be much appreciated steven

  15. Preformance

    NB Styling have some nice induction kits and other upgrades for that engine. Have the same engine and would say to get the Egr blanked off so you don't get any crud building up
  16. Steering Wheel Angle Sensor

    Hi. Interesting thread this. Did you ever resolve it? My Focus (2010) does exactly the same thing - on some country bends, I hear a click and whirr as though the ESP is readying itself. I've got access to some equipment that shows me info on the CANBUS and there are no wheel speed discrepancies or indications that the ESP or ABS are active at the time of these events. My guess would be the yaw sensor (added after 2008, I believe) or steering wheel angle. I need to check the CAN info for the steering info, I think. Any techs from Ford on this forum who fancies a discussion about this ? Thanks
  17. Have you recently had a new windscreen? There's a problem with the light and wiper sensor. Either needs a new gel pad or a complete new sensor.
  18. Blower settings

    Easy fix? Expensive?
  19. Sudden Drop in MPG

    In this thread we all have measly 1.6s with considerably less power than your 2.0... Big part of it is mileage though, the major difference between mine and the decent MPG ones is the amount of miles they're covering each day.
  20. Blower settings

    usually the blower rheostat needs replacing
  21. 2017 Fiesta 1.0 Reverse Gear Problems? (MK 7.5)

    It's because they still didn't fit a synchro to reverse on that IB5 gearbox, bit poor for such a modern car tbh. Either come to complete stop or double declutch and it should be better.

  23. DASHBOARD BRIGHTNESS

    Ah ok, on the Mk3 Focus, to the right of the large headlight knob there are a couple of buttons with a dash clock picture and + & - symbols. These adjust the dash brightness, they can be a bit slow though so press once then wait a second or so and it should brighten a bit after each press.
  24. DASHBOARD BRIGHTNESS

    Next to the headlight controls is a brightness adjustment for the dash lights.
  25. Blower settings

    Hey guys, hope someone can help. I went out in the car earlier and all was fine with the blowers on all settings. Came out of the shop and noticed that the blowers were not working on settings 1, 2 and 3 but 4 works fine. Could this be a fuse? Any help greatly appreciated.
  26. DASHBOARD BRIGHTNESS

    soz tom its a 13 plate focus titanium eco boost 1 litre
  27. Preformance

    Which size engine? If you've got the 1.6, you can take injectors and turbo from the 1.6 TDCi 110ps Focus... Though tbh hybrid turbo is the better way to go.
