  1. Was in my girlfriends fiesta the other day when the engine temp gauge shot up to 120, then back to 60 and a message came up saying "Engine temperature high" or something along those lines. It then went away and the car was performing fine the whole time. It was on a long journey which its not used to, but i dont think this would have happened? Anyone any ideas? Possibly a faulty sensor? Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Olly.
  2. Removing Gaiter To Change Gear Knob

    If you remove the plastic panel that the gaiter goes through, (the bottom one) its easy. The gaitor clips off the bottom of this panel. But yes, turning it anticlockwise will remove the gearknob. But since the gaitor is attched to the knob you need to take it off to. To remove the plastic panel just pull up, theres 4 metal clips holding it and 2 plastic ones, you need to pull quite hard. Then just clip the gaitor and unscrew the gearknob! :)
  3. Earth In Centre Console Area?

    Yeh, might do that for now, as its an easier job, then if i want to have it on constant, ill do it later on. Cheers for the help, Olly.
  4. Earth In Centre Console Area?

    Cheers guys, will take a look later on. Do you think this is simple enough, or would it be easier to just connect the rear footwell LED's to the courtesy footwell lighting from the front?
  5. I currently have a positive feed running down the centre console coming from a piggyback fuse adapter in the glove box fuse box. I am looking for an earth to connected some LED's to. Where is the easiest place to find one? Any help appreciated. Cheers, Olly.
  6. Just to make things even more difficult, if it was me, id run it down the centre console from the glovebox, under the carpet in the rear footwell, and under the seats, then into the boot, round the side of the boot, in the plastics, and round to the back of the boot. Hahah. Good luck, whatever option you go for! What are you wiring if you dont mind me asking?
  7. Help To Throse Alloys To My Car

    Get the RS ones, they look great. I've always wanted 17's like that.
  8. I know what you mean, OEM is good! ^_^ Sounds like an idea, if you go ahead with it, make sure and get up some pics!
  9. I found 17" RS styled ones for the fiesta once, i always wanted to buy them, but when i went back to look, i couldnt find them! I would only ever change mine to 17's but im sure the 16's would look great too. I say go for it!
  10. 12V

    Yeh, gotta get a switch in there too. How will i know what fuse to put in the adapter? Do i need to calculate it? :) Thanks!
  11. 12V

    Yeh, i think id like them on with the ignition. So just run a positive leg from the ignition fuse? Sorry, I'm new to the whole electrics thing, but willing to give stuff a go! So, piggyback fuse adapter from a fuse that runs when ignition is turned on? do i need a fuse in both the fuse spaces? (both slots on piggyback adapter)? then splice into that, onto the LEDs then an earth?
  12. 12V

    Think theres anyway of connecting it to the handbrake switch? handbrake on = LED off/ handbrake off = LED on ?
  13. 12V

    Ahh, thanks. :( Next best place to connect? The LED's are for rear footwell lights.
  14. 12V

    Does the 12V cigarette lighter output, always stay on, even if the car is off and locked? I was thinking about connecting some LEDs to it, but I've just thought about this. Any help greatly appreciated! :) Thanks, Olly
  15. A Few Issues

    I always thought "issue 5" was normal? is it not? I didnt realise the indicator lights were meant to flash? I'm guess jamjam80 wont be able to help with this? iNath (or anyone for that matter), are they meant to flash? Thanks.
