      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.

    Hi, I have a 2001 1.6 Ford Focus which i have had for about a year. The boot release button by the steering wheel has never worked which was fine whilst my key fob was working. Last year the key fob stopped working but with a quick battery change it was fine. Recently it has gone again and a change of battery has not fixed it. Also when i lock the car with the key, if the alarm beeps to say its set the alarm will then sound. I am in a situation where i have to lock then unlock the car then lock again until its locked with no 'alarm set' sound. Its driving me and the neighbours mad with constant beeping and alarm going off!! Any idea how i can fix the key fob or at least turn the alarm off!!! Reluctant to take it to a dealer only to be told it will cost hundreds of pounds, i am not a real car enthusiast just use it for getting to work so dont want to be paying alot of money. Thanks
