  1. My 2.0tdci powershift was serviced 2 weeks ago with no issues. Yesterday morning got in and pressed the button and it started first turm as usual and then a couple of seconds later it stalled. Thought this was a bit odd. Tried to start again and it took around 5secs of cranking to start and then ran fine and started fine all day. This morning same thing again. Tank was 1/4 full. Took it for a good run and it didnt miss abeat. Anyone any ideas what it might be. Left it yesterday for a good 8hrs and tried it but it didnt stall. Seems to be first start of the day. Nothing coming up on dash and no odd smells. If it wss fuel filter issue would have thought it would have shown after service.
  2. Hi Struggling a bit here... The passenger side front air vent has developed a very annoying rattle, when its open. Not sure at all whats wrong with it, but thought I would remove it, to have a look, but cant seen to find any way of removing it. Also there is a tapping coming from above the overhead console, I presume its the wiring for the auto wipers etc come a little loose. Also cant see how to remove this console. Can anyone help?? Is there a service manual for the 2011 CMax out. cant seem to find anything on the internet about it. Thanks for any help
  3. I had this on my Focus diesel. It ended up being leakly injector seals and leak off pipes, leaking fuel onto the manifold. If its a diesel, hold you hand aboe each injector. If its leaky you should feel a puff of air onto the palm of your hand, on each injector cycle
  4. Climate sensor is on the front of the dash. Maybe its a little speaker, but it seems a bit pathetic.....
  5. Yeah, I thought that too, photos not clear, It points more toward the driver. There is not one on the passenger side, and no matter what the airflow is set to, no air comes out. The car has auto climate control, but even set to manual, nothing comes out of it.
  6. Hi Sorry about this, but the ford cmax owners book is less than useless... Was cleaning the car this evening, and noticed this small grill, under the steering wheel. Have no idea what its for? Can anyone shed any light on it??
  7. Thanks Jeebo. No codes at all, and it seems to have settled. Maybe it was the new tyre settling in??
  8. Thanks. Had the car since December. Never seen this issue until I got this nail in a rear tyre. Since I reset last friday, not seen since. How do I check for codes in the new cmax. Is there a way like on the focus. Can it still be done with the power start button. I presume you agree with the premise that the fan is the dpf regeneration. I am surprised at that as the car is predominantly used for motorway runs.
  9. Hi This warning came on a few weeks ago. Checked tyres and one was down. Pumped it up, and reset the system, and all finer for a couple of weeks, and it came on again, and same tyre down. turns out it was a nail in the tyre. It was replaced, and I reset the system, but 5 days later error came back. Checked tyre pressures and all OK, Fronts both at 35, rear nearside 33, and the new tyre, rear offside, 36. I reset the system, and its has not come back yet (3 days ago). Has anyone elses done this?? Also a few weeks ago, noticed the engine fan was on, when I was parking up. It went off when engine switched off, was heard to slowly spin down. Never heard it since until today, same thing, seemed to be on after I had parked up. Both occasions engine at normal operating temperature. Didnt do it again all day. I thought engine fans only came on when engine starting to overheat. I have never seen it past halfway, its always sat a just below halfway once engine warmed up. Its a 2.0TDCI titanium, with the powershift auto box.
  10. Hi Just wondering if as well as ambient light, are the autoheadlamps on some kind of daylight timer?? Reason I ask is that sometimes in a morning, early on, even i its very light, the headlights are on, but later on in the day, even if it seems a bit darker, the lights stay off. Wondered if they were on some kind of day/night timer kind of thing. Example.... Driving to work yesterday, 7AM. M55 very bright, but lights on. Later on at around 4PMish, seemed to be to be darker, but lights off. Just wondering???
  11. Thanks for that. Will make sure I dont break it. .....
  12. Hi Got keyless start with the Ford power button, but not keyless entry. Only really asking, as it seems to be in a very open position, dont want to break it... Sorry image didnt upload properly.....
  13. Lol... must admit ladt night it did look rather nice inside...... posted a pic of that sensor I was wondering about. Anyone any ideas, manuals a bit useless.
  14. Thanks Ian, thats very helpful. I dont have a knob on the ceiling console, so I presume im stuck with red. Surprised they chose this as the dash lightings a nice blue colour. will checkout ebay for the inflator bottles.
  15. Finally getting used to my cmax after having a focus for 8yrs. First auto box ever had as well takes some getting used to... anyhow been fiddling today, and noticed that I had 2 options under lighting. Ambient and rain. Switched on ambient as I had an idea what they do, but researched and some people say you can change the colour. Is there any way to do it. Also, what are rain lights??? also is there any way of stopping the radio switching from fm to dab and back. It gets rather irritating. Its the sony unit, not the standard ford one. Last thing, sorry.... had the boot carpet up. Noticed I had no spare just some inflation kit. Where do you get new ones from, this is close to expiry, and also there seems to be some kind of sensor under the carpet up by the rear seats in the centre of the boot. Its connected by a black and yellow wire that leads to the passenger side of the car. Thanks in advance....
