DTC Codes Courtesy of Preee: Has anyone managed to get this trick to work with a Keyless Ignitiion "power start button"? Focus 2010 I tried , holding the reset button on the trip lever , "no trip reset on center dash" and starting the engine with the button continued holding for about 12 hrs and still nothing .lol. Tried placing the "key" in and doing the same , nothing happens apart from reseting the trip. BTW key does not turn so can't get II and III positions. *EDIT* - Got it to work. On keyless power start. 1)hold trip reset button in. 2)Short press half way down of the power button , displays II position lights. 3)Continue to hold trip reset button. 4)Menu comes up and click trip reset button to scroll through . -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Courtesy of Bass Junkie: For DTC help please find the following link http://www.eobd2.eu/DTCL.asp select FORD, then enter your DTC code. Should be one letter followed by 4 numbers, however your dash may not show the proper code. For instance if the code shown is P117, enter it as P0117 and it will give you what the error is. P0117 is Engine Coolant Temperature Circuit Low Input. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  21. Erratic idiling when umder electrical load

    hello all this is the email i got from angel tuning today now i am going to phone them tmra to see if i go to them will it be cheaper and as for the optional air filter what do y'all think worth having or not as im not paying £45 for a panel filter k&n do one for much cheaper heres the email below anyways so when u read it u can see they offer a full refund if u dont like what they done dont sound to bad to me to be fair Dear Matt, Thank you for your enquiry regarding the upgrades Angel Tuning offer for your Ford Focus. AT A GLANCE QUOTE Charge including VAT & Coming To You:- £250.00 BHP Increase:- 10 Lb Ft Increase:- 11 ITG Competition Air Filter (Optional):- £45.00 Economy Improvement:- 8-10% Overall / 14-16% Urban FULL QUOTE Engine Tuning We offer engine remapping, the modern version of chipping which is the correct way to safely tune a modern petrol engine. With our ECU remapping you get smooth and progressive power, with improved response, that can be tailored to your requirements. Angel Tuning are able to offer tuning services at your location with our mobile tech team, who are fully equipped with the latest diagnostic equipment as well as a wide range of tuning hardware. Whilst we normally book 1-2 weeks in advance for mobile it depends when you book in as we can often get customers in earlier. Our charge for the 1.6 16v is £250.00 including VAT. This price includes the engine tuning work to add up to 10bhp, (11lb ft torque) pre and post testing, acceleration testing and travel to your home or workplace. Whilst we are unable to give an accurate figure on the improvement in economy after your car has been tuned, most people get between 1-3mpg improvement on petrol vehicles providing your driving style and the speed you drive at does not change! As the engine is running more efficiently, the emissions are actually improved so there will be no problem at MOT time should you have the car at that point. We would like to state that we are not the sort of company that tries to get the ultimate extra 1bhp at the expense of drivability just to look good on paper nor do we quote the power figures from a single dyno run set up to achieve a short term burst of power to win your business. We know from vast experience what these cars can take long term and our aim is to achieve the best combination of power, longevity, economy and as mentioned, drivability. ECU remapping is fully reversible, which means if you are unhappy with the results on the day, we will return the car to normal and thank you for trying us. After this, we offer a 14 day "cooling off" period** during which you can at least get the chance to test our work over distance and familiar journeys. If once again you are unhappy for any reason, we can either modify what we have done or indeed return the car to standard and give you a full refund. When you come to sell the vehicle we can return the car to standard for you free of charge****. Other Upgrades from Angel Tuning Angel Tuning can also supply an ITG sports air filter, which uses a patented tri foam filtration element as used in their competition induction systems. This will increase the power by a further 1 – 1.5% due to the improved air flow rate and further improve the throttle response. The additional price on this is £45.00. Company Information Our technicians are full insured not only to carry out the work on your vehicle but to fully test drive a modified car too, which is something we implore you to check if you decide to go elsewhere for a “cheap deal”. Angel Tuning are a UK wide company with locations strategically placed to ensure coverage. We are big enough to cope with the largest of demands but still retain the small company approach to care and flexibility. By becoming an Angel Tuning client, you benefit from the experience of a company tuning in excess of 200 vehicles per month and a commitment to customer support and satisfaction. We are an independent tuning company, we are not dictated to by being a franchise of another tuning company and can therefore be flexible to every individual’s needs, be it from a dealership to a private individual. Payment We accept all major credit/debit cards except American Express, cash or cheque. I will leave you to consider the details, should you require further information, please do not hesitate to either drop us another email or call us for a friendly chat on 087 091 091 16. Best regards Simon Angel Tuning *The work is free, however we will charge an agreed expense if you want the technician to come to you. ** This can be extended by agreement in certain circumstances *** This is refunded as part of the full refund should you not be satisfied with the work in any way **** We will request and agree a reasonable fee to cover travel for the technician to come out to you cheers matt
