      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. Brake Light Fail

    After looking at my car again .. the two faulty "brake" lights were in fact the fog lights *cough* *slips away quietly*
  2. Brake Light Fail

    I noticed today that of the 5 brake lights my car has only 1 was working ...oops Looking at the back of the car.... - Far left = not working - Left (on boot) = not working - Top Middle = not working - Right (on boot) = not working - Far Right = Working OK Swapping the far left bulb made it work but swapping neither the left or right didn't. A friend has metered out the bulbs and they're fine. I've looked all over to try and find a fuse and I'm either blind or there isn't one. Any ideas why both the main brake lights don't work on the boot. I'd look the the one at the top but this seems quite sealed in. Many thanks in advance.
  3. S-Max Not Starting

    Thanks for the reply. Luckily my dad has the stuff that I need (well he needs) to check the battery voltage and will come round tonight to have a look.
  4. S-Max Not Starting

    Hello, I hope you can give me some advice as my 2.0TDi Zetec S-Max (59 Plate) refused to start this morning. Hopefully these points might help: - - It has been a little sluggish to start the last few days (put down to cold) - 2 days ago i get an "Immobiliser Active" error on the display however the car started no problem - this cleared when I switched the engine off and restarted ... error never came back (assumed gremlin). - Lights and radio all seem OK so think battery is OK (no kit to test voltage with) When I try and start it all the internal lights flash i.e. both indicator lights and after a little while there is a single clunk
  5. Open Windows

    Hello, This seems really stupid, but how can I leave my car with the windows down on a sunny day? All my other cars I have been able to do it. No matter what state I leave the lock in (unlocked / locked / dead-locked) the alarm trips after a couple of minutes. This means the car hits about 1000 degrees by the time i need to use it. There is no chance of the car being stolen, it's parked outside my office window in a secure car park.
