  4. Centre Respray And Light Issue

    Yeah thanks but I've tried the polarity loads of times. I have gotten the interior light working again just from removing the bulb and connections a few times. It must have been a bad connection. But the lighter bulb I still haven't got a clue, one minute it worked the next it didn't. Weird. Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  5. Centre Respray And Light Issue

    Well I was fitting LEDs for the centre and I just figured the LED for the lighter had broken in the fuss. So I put the bulb back and that didn't work either. The interior lights LED was new as well. But it may have gone but I just figured it hadn't as the lighters one didn't work either. I will check tomorrow though to be sure. Thanks for the replies btw guys! Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  6. Centre Respray And Light Issue

    Well the one for the interior light is new and when I added it the mirrors started working again as they're on the same circuit. But the light still doesn't and now the lighter bulb too. But the lighter socket works my charger still. Haha it's really baffled me! Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  7. Ok so I was respraying my dashboards centre console and while I was at it, the interior light and elecy mirrors stopped working. So I changed the fuse which had blown, but now the interior light still doesn't work along with the cigarette lighter bulb now as well. But the mirrors do and all the fuses are now intact again =S Is there a relay that controls this lot that could have blown maybe? Here's the console though =) Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC

  9. Footwell Lights With A Twist

    Oh ok righto, pretty simple. Thanks for the reply! Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  10. Hey guys, so I've got some red LED strips that are normally for the outer door handles. But I want to put them in the footwells, as the mk1 focus handles wouldn't exactly be right for them. Does anyone know how they would need to be wired in order to work with the headlights? So they're like an ambient interior light. Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  11. Ford Focus Mk1 Common Problems Thread

    Oh don't get me wrong, I just got my 53 plate 1.8 MP3 with 88k miles on it and apart from one spot of rust at the bottom of the door and a twitchy throttle sensor (I think), it's otherwise immaculate inside and out and both these issues are easy to fix. Any car is as good as its been treated at the end of the day. So to those looking to purchase - just make sure you examine it hard and careful before you buy. MK1/1.5 are getting to be old cars now, not to say they are no longer superb, but the last thing you want is to get stuck with a 'dog' as it could be a total money pit! Find a good one though and you'll love it and spoil it like a child ;) Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  12. New Clear Repeaters

    From the album My Focus MP3

    Got some crystal clear LED side repeaters, aero wipers front and back and I 'back to blacked' everything. Simple but effective. I've also added some Xenon effect bulbs in the rear plate, the headlights and fog lights.
  13. Focus New 08 03 14

    From the album My Focus MP3

    As time goes by the car will change. This is when I first bought it.
  14. Ford Focus Mk1 Common Problems Thread

    Didn't the '99 focus models have the heated windscreen? I know my 97 mondeo did. I've always loved that about fords, heated screens are brilliant, blowers are always a pain. Ooh that's another fault to check on the Focus, the electric screens connections are close to the wiper arms under the black trim above the the bonnet. They often get damaged by moisture and pollen filter swaps etc. So if they don't work check and clean those Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  15. Hey Everyone! New Guy Here...

    Well maybe they thought cable was better as well, but decided to just keep up with the times. I still think cables better though. I mean if the throttle stops working, you know the cables snapped or the throttle body is jammed or something. With electronic throttle it could be down to god knows how many sensors! Why make it so difficult for themselves innit haha Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
