      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.

    Thanks for this. Yes I was planning to take to a different garage but have previously gone on recommendations from friends but it's obviously not worked out.

    I'm new to this forum and I'm not very good at these things so I apologise now. I have come to the end of my tether with my Focus. It seems to be allergic to rain which is not very helpful when you live in the UK. Not every time but every couple of months when it is particularly wet outside it cuts out and will not start. It has been to two different garages who cannot diagnose the problem. They seem to think it maybe the key or immobiliser but I have tried the spare key and it still cuts out and they also called in a Locksmith and £100 later still no answer. It broke down Monday after the torrential rain and only this afternoon has it shown some life and turned over and I was able to drive about 20 feet before conking out again. The time before this it broke down in the car wash so I'm certain the rain is the problem. Has anyone had a similar problem and most of all do you have an answer? When it does work I'm afraid to use it as one of the last times it broke down in the middle lane of the A12. Help!!
