  1. For PC banking take a look at Trusteer Rapport. I use it as recommended by my bank and it filters out and notifies about phishing and malware websites.
  2. What the cable switching refers to is that there are 2 live wires- A ) Ignition live B ) Battery live On some aftermarket loom adaptors these need swapping, this is mainly due to the quadlock adaptor supplied by many companies (especially halfrauds) being supposedly designed for Ford and Vauxhall however they forget that the compatability is not 100%. Swap the wires and see how you go, you should be able to pop out the contacts in the adaptors quadlock connector with a very small screwdriver.
  3. A decent locksmith should be able to source an original key and at a better price than Ford retail price. The big chunk is the reprogramming cost at your dealership which is a rip for a literally 2 minute job. The problem is that dealerships won't do anything without a one hour diagnostic check which is a ) pointless and b ) is charged at a minimum hours labour rate. All they do is plug the car in while they carry on with other jobs then come back to read the results while their tea brews. Any Auto locksmith you contact may well be under retainer to the dealership to process their keys anyway so you can simply cut out the (rather expensive) middleman. I have a good contact where I live who does all the keys for my dealership and he gets just the basic costs while the dealership makes the majority of the cash. Sent from my SM-G930F
  4. It may have come out of a Mondeo in which case you would get some random messages due to slight internal differences. Sent from my SM-G930F
  5. I use a mix of AVG and Malwarebytes. Sent from my SM-G930F

  7. Good effort Fella. Sent from my SM-G930F
  8. I'd get quotes from a few local Auto Locksmiths first. Sent from my SM-G930F
  9. Must be a crossed wire or a short somewhere. Check that there's nothing touching in the bulb holder. I would remove the bulb then put the fuse in, if it still sparks then there's a crossover somewhere.
  10. Look at this on eBay Loom extension would still be required as well. Sent from my SM-G930F
  11. Ford Fair in August is the big one. Sent from my SM-G930F
  12. On the mk1 radio you can get a cd changer emulator that you can use as an aux unit. Tbh you'd be better off with an aftermarket radio that has aux, bluetooth etc as standard. You can use single or double din radios but will either need a fascia adaptor or an aftermarket fascia designed as a true double din fit (and cage). Sent from my SM-G930F
  13. I'm off until Monday night. So 2 days off for a change. Sent from my SM-G930F
  14. Another 13 years and 8 months until I reach compulsory retirement age. We have to retire at 60 or after 30 years service (whichever comes first) unless above Inspector rank. By the time I retire it will be 27 years. I will only get a proportionate pension as full pension doesn't apply unless a full 30 years is done. I also pay 15% of my pay directly to my pension contributions. Sent from my SM-G930F
  15. I'm pretty sure they are still available. There used to be Pineapple ones too. Sent from my SM-G930F
