      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. Hello, this issue has since been solved, turns out the problem was a faulty module within the ECU which is responsible for sending a signal to 2 spark plugs, bought another ECU and had a mechanic who's also adept with electronics swap a good module from the purchased ECU to the current ECU, result was the problem fixed and no need for programming or coding keys as only a module was changed.
  2. Hi, yes I tried swapping the leads around to make 2 and 3 fire, and they did indeed fire, so this must rule out the coil as the fault.
  3. Hi Guys, this is my first post, my Mondeo is only firing on spark plugs 1 and 4, 2 and 3 are not firing, I originally changed all spark plugs but this made no difference, next I tried changing the coil, again no luck, next I checked the cabling going into the coil and all the way back to ECU, it's functioning fine, finally I brought it to two different non-ford mechanics and got them to do a diagnostic test on it, both tests indicated a fault with the coil, now I already changed the coil for a brand new one, I'm thinking at this point that the ECU may be at fault, I'm thinking that the ECU is failing to send any signal for plugs 2 and 3 and is somehow interpreting this as being a problem with the coil. Any ideas or suggestions would be great.
