  1. Feel for you, does sound like other car is at fault though, for driving in to your door. Did they accept liability?
  2. For Fords you can't beat Forscan (other than IDS) with a modified elm327. Not sure how many other cars it works on, might be worth a look. For Fords at least, it's much better than generic code readers.
  3. A Ford dealer could probably get one, they may even have them in stock.
  4. Sounds like battery to me.
  5. No idea what this company is like, just found them from a quick google, but it shows Ford 29 as a key code:
  6. They should be able to sort it now though, no way they can't re-produce it, if it was towed broken down with fault codes logged.
  7. Not familiar with Comodo, but have you checked the list of sandboxed programs? With regards elevated permissions, this didn't exist in XP, if you were logged in as an admin everything got elevated access by default. There was no UAC until Vista.
  8. The problem is that you can control dogs a lot easier than cats. Cats are much more independent and you don't think twice about seeing a cat wandering across the road, a dog on the other hand...
  9. So seems like it is more of an issue when cold then? The sooner it warms up, the better it performs.
  10. Different engine but I can really feel A/C on too. The extra deceleration is like I'm resting my foot on the brakes. Perhaps the Ti-VCT PCM over compensates or something?
  11. Surely if they just paid out and you've got no legal dealings with them, then they cannot claim to back. Have they chased you for it? I'd almost be inclined to ignore it and say you thought it was a scam, if they chase.
  12. Not just that you have the window open recently? I have had that happen to me, only noticed it in warm weather because I had windows down.
  13. Sounds like the throttle pedal assembly needs replacing, pretty sure it is fly by wire throttle on the MK1.
  14. Accelerating hard in low revs and a high gear is never a good idea anyway. Possibly just the diesel knock being exacerbated by lugging the engine?
  15. The good thing is that there are now error codes and it has failed for them to see. Should be able to get fixed now.
