      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. Ford Ka Heater Problems!

    I had the opposite problem with a fiesta. Blowing only cold air, changed the control valve from ford dealer, then only blew hot air. Changed control panel and made no difference. Bought another control valve and that cured the problem. The 1st part i bought was faulty! You can check the valve by connecting it directly to the battery terminals. The valve doesn't stay open or closed it pulses constantly to let varying amounts of coolant into the heater matrix.
  2. Fiesta Heater

    I have a 1997 fiesta whose heater stopped working. It only blew out cold air. I replaced the coolant valve to the matrix and now it only blows hot. I checked the electrical connection at the valve and it registers 12v whether the control is set at hot or cold. Is this right?
  3. Ka Ignition Light

    My daughter's 2002 Ford Ka showed faulty charging. The alternator was changed and problem persisted. Some wiring changed by Ford dealer and alternator replaced a second time. Problem persists. Ford dealer says it could be an ECU behind dash and will cost £900. Any ideas.
