  1. Wiring Voltmeter

    So if i was to tap into the ign live of radio harness it should be ok with another tap already on it? Think i will still need an inline fuse or will the radio fuse blow if there was a problem? Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  2. Wiring Voltmeter

    Also i wonder if anyone knows the colour of wire for ign live in steering column? Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  3. Wiring Voltmeter

    I have brought a voltmeter for my focus mk2.5 and just need to wire it in. I have 3 wires - ground, live and dimmer for lights. I can wire light to behind the switch for headlights and ground to chassis. The live i am concerned about as dont want to go into the firewall and to battery so i was going to put it to switched ignition live. I already have my dash cam connected to the radio harness ign live so dont really want to put the voltmeter on it also as it will reduce the current. Best option i think is with an inline fuse to switched ign live in steering column. Anyone know of another simple option? Can anyone help? Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  4. Interior Plastics On 2011 Mk2

    If you are confident enough in taking it all apart, it might be possible to buy a faulty unit the same off ebay or something and swap over the buttons? Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  5. Focus Lights

    That does sound like a faulty or sticky switch in the door part. Cant remember where it is but looks like a small black rubber switch near the door catch. Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  6. Focus Lights

    I think it sounds like the switch inside the door (found by the metal catch) which controls the interior lighting could be faulty or sticky? Not sure about the clip - might be a new headlight im afraid unless you can secure it in place somehow. Edit: Re reading your post again.. Did you mean manually turning off the light from switch on the unit? Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  7. Pillar Gauge

    I am planning to fit a 52mm gauge in the windscreen pillar on drivers side on my mk2.5. Ive seen focus rs have been fitting boost gauges there.. Wondered if there was an fitting guides as i cant seem to find any? Also does anyone know the finis code for the pillar trim in cream so that i can modify it. Cheers Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  8. Dashboard Light.

    I was just about to ask this question too! It is annoying as the light stays lit when car is locked. There must be a way to adjust the timeout of it? Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  9. Love the workmanship on this project mate. Attention to detail is amazing. I am tempted to do my focus instrument cluster just like your astra one.. Is it just a matter of swapping leds with solder? Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  10. Ford Focus St , Esp Light

    I used to find mine kept coming on too. Weirdly enough, after i replaced my tyres as they were near illegal tread the esp light stopped its funny behaviour? Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC

    Have you tried the light leveller wheel next to the headlight switch? Maybe it has been accidently caught? Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC

  14. There is a hong kong ebayer seller selling these but i dont know how good they are but i am guessing they would all be the same as just a gas strut and few brackets? Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
