      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. Hi all.new to this forum and new to fords.i bought a 04 plate saloon mondeo 2ltr tdci on Thursday.been in and out of it loads since and everything has been spot on.now when I turned the lights on the rear lights came on and so did the brake lights.so I nipped to halfords last night and bought the correct bulbs.i changed one,started the car to check it worked properly and all was sound.i then changed the second bulb but the car just made a fast ticking noise like it had a low battery.a halfords man checked the battery and said it was fine.i tried to bump and jump start it and nothing.when I turn the key to position 3 the red light on the clock flashes really fast.i spoke to a few blokes and they said its the immobiliser.so I took the key to a key shop this morning who put it in a machine and said its reading the chip fine so it must be the car.just to make sure it wasn't the starter motor I took out the starter relay and bridged it.i can here the starter motor spinning but it just won't engage.so have I got a starter motor problem or immobiliser?or both?any help would be fantastic.cheers
