  1. Hi, I have a 2007 Transit Connect Torneo LHD, I had a problem with the n/s/r stop and tail lamp connections, they kept touching when the bulb was inserted and blowing the fuse, unfortunately when I tried to move the contacts on one occasion I had left the lights on, this caused something to blow, not the fuse that had blown previously, I now can't find any fuse that is blown and I have now side lights. Any ideas please. Cheers Steve
  2. Air Bag Warnig Light

    Thanks for that, it makes sense, I couldn't see anything wrong with my connectors but just splitting and rejoining them sorted the warning lamp, so top tip for me. Cheers Steve

    Thank Kurt, I'll have good look tomorrow in the daylight. Cheers Steve
  4. Mk6 Auto Lights

    First thing in the morning I may well of moved the stalk, it's just taken almost 2 years to discover a feature I never knew I had, I'll try it again in the morning, I've quickly read the handbook but couldn't find anything about it. With my autolight sensor is this actually on the mirror and if so how does it get power, My screen is heated and that all works fine. Cheers Steve

    Yes, any fix that's free is always agreat fix. Cheers Steve
  6. Mk6 Suspension Noises

    Well I have had a development with my mystery knocking, last friday I gained yet another fault, the plastic hose from the power steering resovoir came unclipped and rubbed against the power steering pump pully, a presto no oil, no power steering. My local dealer got me a new pipe (£43:00), the only way to get any decent access to the area was to remove the o/s headlamp, easy enough and then easy to change the pipe, it was however that when I was cleaning up the spilt oil from around the engine bay that I noticed that the front bumper bar to chassis fixing was loose (very loose), on closer examination all 8 retaining bolts were found to be very loose and the noise that as been driving me nuts was in fact the front bumper bar moving and banging, this could not be seen from underneath or from outside as the outer bumper skin didn't move with the bar. \\\\\\\\but on driving the car it was an instant fix and no more noise. Very pleased Steve
  7. Mk6 Auto Lights

    Something else strange going on with my car regarding lights, I have now owned the car for almost 2 years, today I went to work as normal (in the dark), I had the headlamps on the normal position. When I got to work, stopped the car, turned the lights and wipers off, got out and pressed the button to lock the doors, as I walked away I noticed that the front side lights were still on, thinking I probably hadn't turned the switch far enough I opened the car up again, the switch was in the off position so I turned it to headlamps and then to off again, this time I notice message on display that I hadn't seen before saying "safe home lights" or something very similar, when I got out of the car and re-locked it this time the side and headlamps were still on, I stood and watched and waited for maybe 30 secs or so then they went out. This as never happened before and didn't happen when I returned home either, what is happening here and how to I control it. Cheers Steve
  8. Air Bag Warnig Light

    Thanks for the advice, I've covered over 50 miles since checking the seat plug, I'm pleased to say I have had no more airbag warning lamps since, so very pleased. Cheers Steve

    Hi, I've loctaed the sensors behind the glovebox, not being electrically savvy I have no idea how to test there operation, so I think I willneed to visit friendly autoleccy. Cheers Steve
  10. Mk6 Auto Lights

    No I haven't, why would that effect it, where is the sensor for the auto lights, my wipers are not the rain sensitive type, I've seen the screen on them and the black section behind the mirror is different to mine so I assume that is the rain sensor! Cheers Steve
  11. Mk6 Auto Lights

    Thanks for reply, I have pulled out all the fuses that appear to have anything to do with these functions but all seam to be good, are any of the relays linked to these functions? Cheers Steve
  12. Air Bag Warnig Light

    Hi thanks for replies, mine is a 4 door model, today I split the connectors under both front seats, I drove it for approx 5 miles and so far it has not come back on, previously it was getting worse comming on virtually straight away, so hopefully sorted, I'll post again on Monday when I have covered some more miles. Cheers Steve
  13. Air Bag Warnig Light

    Hi, following on from previous posts, yet another fault developed today, driving to work this morning the air bag warning lamps lit up, I pulled over to the side of the road expecting the bag to go off, nothing happened so restarted and the light went out, but came on again after a few miles, Parked up in work, 8 hours later started car and light went out, but again came on after a few miles, not sure what will happen tomorrow, any ideas, so many faults in such a short time, the car has only done 51000 miles and is regulary serviced and driven with care, are the Gods of the second hand car salesman ganging up on me. Cheers Steve
  14. Mk6 Auto Lights

    Following from my previous post (suspension noise) another fault my car has just developed is the Auto light function, if I turn the light switch to auto, instead of the lights only coming when light fading they now stay on permanently until switched off. The dash displays message fault with auto lamps and wiper delay, and yes the wiper delay now only works on one speed, are these faults related and why and how do I sort them. Cheers Steve Another fault to follow.........................
  15. Mk6 Suspension Noises

    My 2008 1.4 tdci has developed a knocking noise from the suspension, the n/s/f lower ball joint was an advisory in the last MOT so I had both changed at the same time. The noise is still there, when driving I think the noise is from the front, but passengers think it is from the rear, it's a getting to be really loud now especially when driving over those raised painted warning lines on the roads. I have jacked up all four corners expecting to find something hanging off, but nothing, no excessive play to be found anywhere, nothing loose or broken, getting desperate now any thoughts. I also have other faults that have developed all of sudden, please see other posts, everything seams to be going Pete Tong for my little Fiesta. Cheers Steve
