      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. Mk1 53 Plate C-Max Gone Into Engine Idle Mode

    ok, after much searching i actually found it covered with tape which now leads me onto my next question it is a 53 plate diesel so can anyone recommend a code reader as the ones im seeing only seem to work on 2004 diesels and above. Thanks
  2. MK1 53 PLATE C-MAX 2.0l TDCI ZETEC No Engine warning light illuminated Engine in idle mode and not going greater than 3000rpm Have disconected negative terminal on battery and reconnected after approx 15 min, this seemed to clear the issue as engine then proceeded to go higher then 3000rpm however same issue happened about 1hr later, no warning light but engine in idle mode after being switched off Someone has advised there is a way of putting the car into a "self learning" mode however im unsure how to do this. The car is not ODB2 compliant so am unable to attach code reader to see if any faults. Does anyone have any hints, tips or suggestions?
