  1. cheers pitmonster great reply... all he asked when he saw i didnt have the 18 alloys on was had i had the car reprogrammed so it knew it had different size wheels on... threw me a bit to be honest as it did puzzle me a tad... he just said it needed doing or else i had the chance of errors popping up to do with speedo/abs etc..... but driving the car tonight i had my tomtom on and on cruise control the speed on the satnav was within 3 or 4 mph of what the speedo was reading...
  2. Evening.... I currently have the new shape focus on an '11' plate... Its the titanium x model that comes with the 18" alloys with Michellin Pilot Sport 3's 235/40 ZR18 as standard... I already owned a set of winter tyres which I used to put on my old car but this car had the 16" alloys on. So I have purchased 16" steel wheels and had the Michellin Alpin A4's 205/55 R16 fitted to them. I've now swapped my wheels over and thought all was good until I called into my local ford dealer today when he told me I may well of now invalidated parts of my warranty by swapping to smaller wheels but also that i've possibly caused lots of problems now and that i should have the car reprogrammed with the wheels set at this new diameter and at a cost of around £50 !!!!!! As the speedo, abs, trac control etc all work off the wheel size.... Is this correct or am I been fed a bit of nonsense??? Cheers Paul...

  4. cheers for the reply lenny.... Just been out for a good 40 min motorway blast at high revs.... engine system fault message still there.. just wondering if that would naturally clear itself even after a good blast or would it still need restetting/clearing at a garage and see if it comes back... thanks..
  5. November last year I had the " engine system fault " message appear on the dash and the little red led to the right come on my focus 1.6 tdci zetec.. After going to my local Ford dealer I was told likely cause was that the additive eloye needed topping up.. had this done at a good local garage as it was cheaper than the main dealer.. this solved the warning on the dash and has been fine for last 6 months... on sunday the " engine system fault" message reappeared... been back to the garage where had the additive topped up and they put it on the diagnosis which came up with 2 codes of " p2485 & p2585" the garage are now saying that they think the actual dpf needs replacing!!! any help or info to clarify this would be grately appreciated... car has done 78k cheers..
