  3. Fixed it, seems the two canbus wires were shorting for the seat plug. But now the entire seat doesn't work, up down, forwards backwards, backrest, none of them work.
  4. Furthermore the reverse camera doesn't show and the parking sensors don't work. There aren't any dings or noises as there usually is. Took the battery off for half hour, left the seat disconnected, and still exactly the same after reconnecting the battery (leaving the seat unplugged).
  5. I swapped my fully loaded drivers seat from my old Mondeo to my new one, but the new one is going back so put the fully loaded seat back in my old car and since plugging it back in, I'm having the below problems. The screen in-between the clock just displays Convers+ splash screen, the engine temp shows -60'c, when i push the ignition button it blows the fans on full power for 2 seconds. Also the doors won't lock. The car starts and drives ok but theres a problem with the dash electrics. Any idea what's up with it?
  6. So i had an ST a few years ago, had a turbo back pipe on it and it used to pop and bang like mad. Decided to buy a Mondeo with the 2.5T engine, to have some fun before I suddenly have to buy a family car like an Smax or something. So I want my Mondeo to pop and bang since it's the same engine, however... I've purchased and fitted a Scorpion turbo-back exhaust (resonated), and it doesn't pop, so I added a decat (welding a 200 cell sports cat to the decat pipe soon) and it still doesn't pop. I disconnected the battery for two hours to reset the ecu and it's learning habits and it made no difference. Some things that may cause it to non pop; it's got the standard downpipe on it, I am going planning on getting the scorpion 3" pipe soon. Also I couldn't get the sensor out from the old cat so I unplugged it until I purchase another one. I want it to pop and bang like the ST did, what can I do to make it do this?
  7. I've recently purchased a MK4 Mondeo with the 2.5T engine. No matter how sensible I drive it around town, I get no more than 20mpg on average. I had a Focus ST with the same engine and I'm sure that got around 27mpg around town. The turbo seems to start spooling at around 1400rpm and it has lots of low end torque, there seems to be a flat spot at around 2000rpm, if this makes any difference? Is this normal for the Mondeo with this engine, since it's heavier than the ST?
  8. The wires that are cut in the pic are from the car which the seat was removed from. I just can't seem to connect them to anything in my Mondeo. Mine is a TitX, but the fuse location in the boot for the Memory Seat Function only has one side terminal for the fuse and the other terminal is blank. I heard somewhere that the striped coloured wire was for CanBus and can be connected to any other CanBus wires to enable them?
  9. I've fitted a new heated/cooled seat to my Mondeo MK4, but the seat has memory buttons. How can i enable these? All the wires are the same on the seat plug however the new seat came with two extra wires but i don't know where they go. Here is a picture:
  10. Not a 'modified Op-Com', that was for my old Vauxhall, sorry. I mean i have a modified ELM-327. Can i deactivate the keys with this? Also, i tried today to remove the push start button but it seems impossible and i can't access any wires anywhere. I was going to put a hidden switch on one of the power wires to the start button.
  11. I have a modified Op-Com, can i do this myself? Also, I've just purchased these:
  12. my concern is that they now have a matching (cloned) fob from when they stole the car. So they can come back and simply unlock the car using their fob and drive it away, with no alarm or window smashing this time. Would it be as simple as replacing the immobiliser ECU along with the paired key fobs, or am i correct in thinking that the entire car needs some kind of reprogramming to swap the immobiliser units over?
  13. I thought they hacked the OBD port to unlock the doors and disable the alarm, then they create a new key fob to start inside the car and drive it away?
  14. My MK4 mondeo was stolen, and has been recovered today with just a broken window. So i'm going to repair it myself to save my no claims. They stole it with the common push start hack, with cloning a key fob. So i'm worried they can come back and simply use the cloned key to take it again. My question is, what would be needed to change the key fobs to different ones so they can't use their cloned fob to unlock the car again? Thanks
  15. how do you update the ROM to get the eco light? found it, HEC > Procedures > Page 2
