      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. Cutting Out Problem

    how could it be battery if its running, for a instant we went to london from yorkshire and after 2hrs 30mins we decided to pull into services and going into services slip lane it cut out and then wouldnt start, we kept trying to start it but wouldnt fire back up, eventually the battery went flat with trying to turn it over, we left it a while and then got it jumped back off and carried back onto london and then back to yorkshire a few hrs later. it doesnt happen all the time just occasionally. Some one said it could be alarm doing it but not sure rgds paul
  2. Cutting Out Problem

    Hi Its not the battery as we have had this checked and its always had a good charge so garage rulled out the battery. Ford want £98 to do a diagnostic check on it to see if they can find anything
  3. Cutting Out Problem

    Hi we are having a problem with our s max and not sure what it is, it can be ok for a while then you could go out then it would just cut out at a junction or similar places and we carnt get it started. How we get it started back up is we have to get another car to connect jump leads to it and then it starts back up, dont think its a battery problem as its always fullly charged when previously tested Its getting that bad that we are looking at selling the car, car is a 56 plate s max titanium rgds paul
