      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. 2.0 Petrol Not Starting

    96 Galaxy GLX 2.0 Petrol I got in my car the other day and drove as normal to the Tesco nearby. The car stated first time as usual, never having a problem Coming out of Tesco and starting the car up .... but not turning. Dead. battery was eliminated as it was replaced just 3 weeks before Turn the ignition and 'click'. Nothing. Lights on the dash as normal. Just no turn over. I had to bump the car offf to get her going Did some Googling and pretty much the answer was Relay #30 I got a new replacement relay, inserted it and guess what? Nothing. Starter Motor? Started to rock the car as you normally do. Nothing Got a Haynes manual and the theory goes along the lines of: 'Turn the key with your lights on, if the lights dim as your turn the ignition, then voltage is getting to your Starter Motor. Therefore the problem is the starter motor' My lights did drop when I turned the ignition Starter Motor? Ignition? Any other ideas? Best place to get a Starter Motor? Thanks in advance
