  1. Start stop systems disable themselves when battery is under load or not at optimum charge ie air con on heater on rear screen or short journeys where battery hasn't chance to re charge I find they are a pain and turn them Off....
  2. Select reverse with ignition on get down on hands and knees and put ear to each sensor a healthy sensor emits a ticking noise .......
  3. Are you waiting for the glow plug indicator light to go out .....has it started happening since the temp has dropped.... or a fuel pump issue .....I would change fuel filter fir starters.cheap option first
  4. How come the before and after pictures have different lower front grilles ?. Quite like the one in the first picture before ...have you changed them
  5. Is battery good had batteries that were on their way out but not dead totally mess up electronics weird stuff warning lights etc
  6. Ford dealers give them your registration number mine came body painted ...around 30 quid .. ish
  7. Put in reverse with ignition on .....get down on hands and knees ...yes really put your ear to each sensor healthy sensors give a ticking noise .....that's what I did with mine noticing means duff sensor and gives long error tone on start up easy to fit mine came body colour from dealer too.
  8. Maf ... mass air flow sensor had a Nissan did same coming to a rolling stop engine cuts try cleaner spray ...don't touch it its just a thin wire it's usually in line with air filter ...
  9. Yep you can done it on mine bought elm 327 with switch off eBay around a tenner ...you can also choose what speed you want the doers to lock at too
  10. Not if you keep the rolling circumference the same bigger wheel smaller tyre shoulder
  11. I got good years from tyre giant order on net and choose fitting centre near you delivered to them and you pay fitting centre for total amount ...cheaper than anywhere I could find fitted
  12. P's just got 4 18 inch Goodyear eagle f1 fitted for £360
  13. I have 18 on as built and has steering rack restricter fitted turning circle is pants but 18 inch wheels look nice just check to see if yours needs it if up sizing wheels
  14. When the engine is cold I would top up to the minimum mark to give yourself a datum point ...drive a few hundred miles and check the level again when engine cold and on level ground ...if no movement I wouldn't worry but won't harm to keep an eye on it in future
  15. I have done it you have to use eml software to enable it
