      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. Intermittent immobiliser fault

    Two weeks ago, my 2004 Galaxy 2.3 petrol wouldnt start - ignition came on, but it seamed as if the immobiliser was activated as the starter motor didnt turn. I tried again 20 mins later and it started and ran perfectly. During the last two weeks it has faltered once whilst I was driving. It cut in and out and eventually stopped. I tried a different key which made no difference. After a few minutes I tried agian. It started and has been fine since then (5 days). My local garage ran some diagnostics tests and it came up with code B1612 - which according to Ford technical support means a Key identification error. I read that in early models had similar faults caused by relay 30 getting a dry joint. Is their a relay that would cause it on mine (relay 30 is unused)
