  1. What about it? Is there a problem? Do you need advice? Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC mobile app
  2. I think it's a characteristic of the PSA Diesel engine. Mine feels very lumpy when it's cold, just give it time to warm up and it's fine. Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC mobile app
  3. Totally agree with you mate.Big thumbs up from me. Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC mobile app
  4. Was just meaning the typic IT Expert advice that we tend to get whenever we call them, ie, have you checked it connected correctly, can you switch it off and back on again etc. Lol Yeah the heated seat season is certainly upon us now, it was a chilly bum morning this morning. The cooled seats are fantastic in the summer, it just keeps you feeling fresh when on a journey Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC mobile app
  5. Hahaha, you sound like an IT "expert" Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC mobile app
  6. Got the switches out, found its a two piece assembly so quickly whipped the central console off and noticed straight away that the multiply was not connected. They had left the multi plug up towards the gear lever so it hadn't just dropped out when I pulled things apart. Put everything back together and working fine. Many thanks for your help.

  7. I pulled the fuses out of the connectors and looked at the bimetal element to see that it was all intact. I will try to pop the switches out, do they literally just pop out? Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC mobile app
  8. I've just checked the fuses (fb3 & fb4) and they are both fine. Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC mobile app

  10. My car has been into the dealers 5 times over the last month as the voice control system stopped working. I finally got the car back yesterday with working voice control but the heated and cooled Sears no longer work. Now I know the obvious thing to do is take it back to the dealer, but given their incompetence at diagnosing faults I will probably be better off looking at it myself. I can't see it being a fuse as there is no need to a technician to have been anywhere the switches to cause a short etc. Is there a multiplying on the rear of the touchscreen nav unit that could disable the seats from working? Any other suggestions? Thanks in advance, Adam Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC mobile app
  11. I've got the touchscreen satnav unit in mine and to be honest I think the sound quality is rubbish. My last car, an Audi A3 black edition had the Bose system and that was fantastic. The ford/blaupunkt unit are not in the same league. Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC mobile app
  12. I had a VW golf as a courtesy car a while back and they come with an electronic hand brake. It's actually a fantastic system in the VW. To engage it simply come to a stop as normal and keep your foot on the brake for a second, no need to touch the button, the car is then held perfectly in all conditions. To pull away, again, no need to touch the button, just select first and away you go. No jerkiness or anything. A fantastic system Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC mobile app
  13. Hi there, sounds like your company is playing a blinder by offering the hybrid and I too would be interested in one for my next company car. I think the problem here is that they are as rare as rocking horse doo doo. I'm not sure if they are even on sale yet? Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC mobile app
  14. I have a DTUK red power box on mine and it's fantastic. Around 200bhp and 450nM of torque. Also much improved economy. I can get circa 70 mpg when on a decent drive Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC mobile app
  15. I had to get my rear tyres changed after only one year and 26k miles as it was cussing a horrendous noise and vibration. The tyre fitter suggests it is a common problem with the mk4 mondeo caused by the factory suspension set up. Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC mobile app
