      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. Hi all, long suffering Galaxy owner here! This could be pretty straight forward to a learned mech, or a nightmare, so here goes. The glow plug light started to stay on when driving recently. Had the same prob before, general warning light as the brake switch was u/s. Replaced and all ok. Car has run for a couple of weeks since fine. Just been out today, left the car for 11/2 hours, central locking opened car via key, on attempting to start, clicking noise from the on board fuse/relay box, no engine turn over at all? Played with a few fuses, still no joy. Green Flag came out, suggested starter motor jammed and drained battery. He put a boost unit on, still no cranking. He added a further boost unit, car turned over and fired. Drove home no problem. Turned off ignition and left for a while. Opened car with key, central locking did not operate. tried to start, same again, no crank, flashing symbols on dash. Clicking stops when brake pedal depressed, still will not crank though? Battery is recently new, I feel that is not the prob. Seems an electronic issue, even if starter is a bit iffy? Any advise would be greatly appreciated!!
