  2. Canbus communication error

    Thanks Ian if you can find the pins much appreciated delved myself last night till my eyes where sore lol .
  3. Hi wondering if anyone knows the pin outs on C90 in the engine bay fuse box on a 2.0 tdci 2005 my mate has got a coms problem on his resulting in no crank we have pinned the problem down to the fuse box under the bonnet really need to know which are the pcm can us wires that run through C90 with colour code I've had a look on the schematics but can only get so far we know they run through C113 and C112 up to the cluster can get the car started if we move the fuse box but need to secure or clean the connectin in there any help appreciated .
  4. Just a heads up to all don't take for granted if your battery light on the dash comes on that it is the battery I did and it nearly cost me my car had put a smart charge connection on the battery a few weeks ago and it indicated it need edge charging so checked voltage and was only reading 11.5v so assumed I would soon need a new battery .battery light lit up a week or so back so ordered a new battery which duly arrived put it on that evening and was sat in the car removing the fault code with the engine running when I noticed smoke pouring from under the bonnet it was the alternator absolutely fried . I think if I had taken the car for a run it would of burst into flame .weeks prior to this I have had a strange noise every now and again hard to describe but it would come and go had it down to my mates garage and he was convinced it was the turbo vanes had a bit of cack on them so gave mea tin of fortie turbo clean over a day or two after putting in noise goes so me thinking its cured the prob carries on . Now weekend of all the trouble starting battery light had come on and whilst driving home had trouble with the power steering esp and abs lights where coming on left it till Monday morning and no start battery hadn't arrived by then so had to wait a day or two . So in hind sight should of checked the alternator output as well and not assumed it was just the battery so if anyone else has similar symptoms check both .
  5. 1.8 Tdci Alternator Change

    Thanks Ian take it you do the whole job from underneath as I looked before and couldn't see access to bolts to remove alternator Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC

So my question is has any changed one and how easy is it looks quite tight to get the bolts out is a job I should tackle or through into my mates garage all help appreciated
  7. Battery Recommendations 1.8 Tdci

    Thanks for the replies plumped for a yuasa with a five year gaurentee for £68 but what a pita to get the old battery out which gave up the ghost this morning at half five As I'm going to go to work so just waiting for it to be. Delivered .
  8. Looks like my battery is about to give up the ghost anyone got any recommendations for a replacement looks like the original fitted so can't really complain just want to get value for money .
  9. Focus Mk2 2009 Wind Passengers Side

    Have a look at the passenger side mirror trim hasn't come loose causing the noise apparently quite common
  10. Heater Blower - Old Topic,old Problem!

    Just had a similar problem on my sons punto ended up being a bad earth connection in the multi plug just bridged the earth across and all is ok know so might be worth having a look at the feed to the fan motor .
  11. New Engine Wont Start!!!

    Are all the earths in place correctly reason I say is had a similar prob on a Clio dci would crank but not fire put a earth from battery to block and it fired up no probs high fuel pressure could be the injectors not opening
  12. Hard Brake Pedal

    Any update on this the part sort the problem out
  13. Hard Brake Pedal

    Trust me. If you damaged that pipe and then the hard pedal occurred 99.9% certain this will cure it to easy the rubber into the servo just put a squirt of wd on the rubber and it will just slide in .
  14. Hard Brake Pedal

    Had a similar prob on my sons mk1 replaced from fords about 15 quid I think cured straight away but his was petrol 1.8 not a tdci so I can't say where it routes the scuttle panel should be easy enough to get off but it should end up in the servo and just pop out of the rubber grommet Is this what your after http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FOCUS-MK1-98-04-1-8-TDCi-BRAKE-VAC-VACUUM-PUMP-PIPE-1M51-2420-ND-FREE-UK-POST-/281789023238?hash=item419bef4406.
