      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 I'm new to this forum but need a bit of advice. On Christmas day I started the car and noticed that the battery light was on constantly. Yesterday (Boxing day) I did it again and the light went out. I decided to go visit my dad in hospital (daytime - no lights) and got there OK. The battery light went on a few times but went off again afterwards on the way. I came home and switched the lights on etc as it was dark. I got about 7 miles and I noticed my lights getting darker and darker until all sorts of lights started coming on on the dash and my speedo and rev counter stopped working completely. The car stopped and the battery light came on for a few mins before hand. Fortunately I was less than 400 yds from home. Is this an alternator problem. My battery is only a few months old and hence I don't think it should be that. Any ideas? Junpit
