  1. Well that confirms my car is normal as on warmer days it warms up fast. Thanks for your help with your tests
  2. So behind the display and under the top cover with the air grill on it ? Is the gps aerial the same part number for the mirror and screen mount locations are are they different ?
  3. I was told it was by the rear view mirror but have not seen any pictures of where it goes. It would be a great help if any one could post a picture of the fitted location so I can finish this project . Thank you in advance for your help
  4. I have a 03/2013 titanium X ecoboost fiesta of which I have retrofitted the ford 5" led screen with navigation . This all works perfect apart from the car is stuck in KM instead of Miles but I know that requires software / firmware update. The simple question is that I can not confirm the factory fitted position of the GPS aerial and so it is still in my glove box But works great ! Has any member found the location of the gps aerial of the 2013 fiesta or newer . Please can any member help me. My car has the Sony head unit , DAB , Navigation , Sync , with standard roof AM /FM/ DAB aerial . Thanks
  5. Hi , I have had my 125 ecoboost March 13 fiesta for just over a year and when I got it noticed it took about 5 or 6 miles to warm up on a cold day. With normal weather temp of say 10 deg or more car warms up fast and no problems but with outside temp of 6 deg car is slow to warm up. I tested the car tonight and after a drive of about 5 miles the temp gauge shows just two bars lit and after 6 to 7 miles 3 bars lit on gauge. The car drives perfect and would not notice any problems apart from slow to warm up on cold days. I can not think this is normal for this engine as they use a cast iron cylinder block for rapid warm up but would like to ask other members how quick the engine warms up on colder days ? I can only think may be a faulty thermostat but not sure which one as read the ecoboost engine has two thermostats. I had the heater on auto at 26 deg but did not blow much and noticed slow to warm up inside the car. How quick does other members cars warm up on cold days please ? Thanks for help in advance
  6. Hi , first of all i would like to tell you tht this is a friends car and am looking at this fault for him . I work with electronics so have had a quick look into the fault to see what is working / not working. The dash lights all come on as normal and the imobilizer is suspect to start with but the engine will crank but will not fire at all. I did some tests and the imobilizer looks like it is working as when i press the remote the red led on the remote lights and then the remote dash led goes out. At this point the engine will crank but the red led flashes on and do not know if this is normal . I put a meter on the fuel injectors and ignition coil primary and was no voltage and also no fuel pump switching of the relay. I bridged the fuel pump relay and pump runs ok with the shorting link in place and also shorted the power supply relay. With the two relays shorted the engine cranks , i have voltage on the fuel injectors and voltage on the primary of the ignition coil. The engine will only crank with the relays shorted and the ignition coil has no spark and suspect that the injectors are not pulsing but i could smell petrol . I could not find the imobilizer module so first question is where do i find that. I removed the alarm / central locking module but with this out the engine will not crank. I have ordered a ford wiring diagram for mondeo 93 / 94 and early 95 models. I hope this will help with how the system is wired up . I understand the PATS system that works with the chip in the key but not worked with the early system with a BOSCH remote system so any help please as i would just bypass this system if it can be done easy. Please can any onle give me any advice on what fails on these cars and what to check . Thanks for all your help in advance.
