  1. Glove box fuse box

    Thanks Russ. If you look at the timings from my update thread I found it about the same time as your reply. Correct it is in the footwell. I still wonder how many people are going to get caught out with this.
  2. Hi all I have at long last found the so called glove box fuse box. On the Mk 8 it is not behind the glove box as the manual states. It is under a hinged fibre cover just above where a passengers feet would rest. Hope this is helpful and will stop some of you lowering the glove box and scratching your head looking for it there like me. I believe some of the Focus models have it in the same place.
  3. Glove box fuse box

    Hi iantt If as you say it is definatly behind the glove box can you look at these pictures and point me in the right direction to where it is.
  4. Glove box fuse box

    Hi all Thinking of hard wiring a dash cam to the fuse box behind the glove box. My Fiesta is the new Mk 8 and the manual says lower the glove box by pressing the sides in. Having done this there is no fuse box behind it. Contacted my local Ford agent who looked at there display car and confirmed there was no fuse box in theirs. They also checked the cubby hole on the drivers side, not in there either. Anyone any idea where this supposed glove box fuse box is on the Mk 8. Thanks
  5. I agree with CyprusPluto the adaptive cruise control is really good. Often on motorway driving I come up behind lorrries and cannot pull out for centre lane hoggers so the adaptive cruise control takes over, slows me down and allows me to concentrate a bit more on finding a space to pull out. Pre collision assist also handy. Had active city stop on my last Fiesta (same sort of thing) never activated but gives you a bit more added piece of mind to know that it is available in the off chance you get caught out.
  6. New Fiesta, whos got one?

    30 in 4th, 40 in 5th and 60 in 6th. Doesn't feel laboured in these.
  7. New Fiesta, whos got one?

    I have had mine for three weeks now (ordered April) a Titanium, deep impact blue with about all the extras and a spare wheel. Up to this point I have been very impressed with it. Six speed box is a dream, rear disc brakes have noticeable effect over my rear drum 64 reg. A lot less road noise than previous Mk's. All the various settigs take a bit of getting used to. Only problem I have had, as mentioned in a previous thread, is I did lose the GPS signal to the satnav. Has not done it since (fingers crossed). The eight inch screen does not cause any problems and have now got to like it. Overall well pleased with it.
  8. Same thing happened to my daughter. Did some shoipping came back to the car everything dead. Battery had failed. No indications that it was on the way out just died.
  9. Sync 3 navigation

    No dashcam or any other electrical items connected. Satnav worked perfect on outward journey of 150 miles and 3 hours duration. Haven't checked with the Focus forum which I believe have had sync 3 for a while.
  10. Sync 3 navigation

    Hi all. Have just completed my first long run in my Mk 8. Everything works as advertised except on my journey back home the satnav lost its GPS signal. Never regained it until I stopped at a service area and when I switched the ignition back on satnav was working again. Hoping this is just a once of glitch unless anyone out there knows different.
  11. 59 Plate Fiesta 1.4 Battery Going Flat

    Could it be the boot light being on due to a faulty swich.
  12. At long last my Mk 8 Titanium has arrived at the dealers. 16 weeks exactly from order date. I still think it was held till after the launch date before delivery so future orders shouldn't be as long. Trouble is now because of personel reasons I cannot collect it for another 9 days. It is going to be a long 9 days
  13. Sync

    If it is a 2018 as in your profile it must be one of the next generation Mk 8 which is sync 3.
  14. Build date

    Hi All Had a word with the dealer today and was given this explianation. Build date 26th June, gate date (when it left factory for Flushing) 30th June. As of today, four weeks later still stuck in a field in Flushing. Not impressed with Ford delivery this time as my last three Fiestas were all delivered within four weeks of manufacture.
  15. Build date

    Hi All Can anyone out there explain this to me. Three weeks ago I received the VIN for my new Fiesta Titanium. Through etis it gave the build date as 30th June. I have just done another check on it through etis and it now gives the build date as 26th June. Strange!
