      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      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. First post in the forum as somewhat stuck on the following: I have a 2006 Ford Focus (Mark 2) TDCi with 67k miles. Fine until recently, but in the last few days whilst driving (usually on the second short drive of the day), the car has gone into "limp" mode with low revs and very limited speed, accompanied by the following messages: Engine system fault, transmission fault, power steering fault - dash lights all go on too. Sometimes if I leave the car running, the fault clears itself after about 30s to 1 min, and everything is fine thereafter. If I turn the engine off, it will not restart for about 5 mins, and then work fine again. Apart from this the engine sounds just fine and works/accelerates well unless this fault is present. I have gone through the test function, and it brings up the DTC fault codes 9601, D900 and E510. Thinking it was something to do with the battery, I changed this yesterday and the reading on the test function above shows 11.9V in battery voltage when starting from cold (if that's relevant?). Has anyone else experienced these symptoms? Any thoughts to what the problem might be? best regards
