  1. Battery

    I was having the same issue ... i replaced the battery and problem solved Heated screen works every time and start stop works so well its getting annoying See here ...
  2. My heated windscreen now works every time ... and first thing in the morning . Certainly been cured by the new battery .
  3. Just an update a week on ..... my heated screen works every time now and the stop-start has returned too . In fact it stops so often its a pain in the ***** lol All good with a new battery .
  4. Heating

    I can confirm that my heated screen and stop-start work fine now after a battery change
  5. Just changed my battery this morning for this one https://www.tayna.co.uk/Exide-110-AGM-Car-Battery-AGM800-EK800-P8200.html Was easy to change and went for a run and straight away heated front screen worked and after 20 minute drive the stop - start kicked in when on my drive. I had the climate control off so my windscreen would mist up to check heated screen ... all good now .
  6. So no issues with the radio or nav ? I should have the radio code as the car is Ford Direct so it should be there somewhere .
  7. Heating

    Is your battery fully charged ? I'm having same issues with heated screen not working sometimes. I've been told if the battery is weak or not fully charged this can happen as the screen draws a large amount of power. Is your stop start working if fitted. ? Another symptom of a failing battery is the stop start never comes on. Even in winter if the battery is fully charged it should start stop if the correct conditions are met.
  8. Im having s-s issues and heated front screen randomly working as well so im going to change the battery . I have a 2015 Ecoboost Hatch 1.5 and would like to ask if there is anything to be weary of when changing the battery or is it just a straight forward swap . Using Tayna website it says this will be suitable and the dimensions and post positions are correct ... its about 9mm taller but looking at the car it should fit. https://www.tayna.co.uk/110-Enduroline-Car-Battery-P8478.html Will there be any issues with the radio/nav or any of the cars systems ? Thanks
  9. Heated Screen Problems

    I assume there was as he tested the connections at the bottom of the screen and I'm sure there as power ... or at least his little test meter beeped which he said if it beeps means its working. I cant find any info about the relay ( if there is one ) at the moment .... i did look on google earlier but I'm afraid vodka has stolen my attention
  10. Heated Screen Problems

    That's good information ... I'm not sure where the relay is if there is one but I'm hoping its going to be an easy fix. It doesn't go in till next Friday ... I'll do a bit of googling to see if i can find out about relays . Thanks
  11. Hi all The windscreen on my 2015 Titanium Hatchback was replaced by Auto Glass in the summer due to a chip right in front of the driver. The heating did seem to work on the new screen when turned on on the odd rainy day as you can see the area at the extreme edges that were not heated still misted up . But now it seems to not be working as it wont clear even slight misting and or any frost even after the preset time it turn itself off. I sat in the car for 20 mins and no difference until it turned itself off. The original Ford screen was very quick to clear but this new one doesn't seem to be doing anything anymore. So i had Auto Glass back out yesterday to test the screen and possibly replace if faulty. They tested the screen with some kind of meter and claim the screen is ok , so we tested the fuses for the screen which according to the manual are 61 and 66 @ 40amp. Fuses were ok .... so we then gently laid the new screen on top and wired it up and it still wouldn't heat up. He used some kind of digital thermometer thing and it didn't register any temperature change. Strangely when everything was disconnected from either screen if i pushed the front heated screen button it still lit up ?? Is that normal ?? So i have phoned Ford and it goes in next week ... they started to get a bit iffy on the phone when i said the screen had been replaced 6 months or so ago. " Oh so its not the original screen blah blah etc etc" The car is less than 3 years old so should be still under warranty shouldn't it ?? Auto Glass have said that if its something they have done that's caused this then they will obviously pay for repairs. I can tell this is going to be a messy affair already though ...... Any suggestions on what else to try before it goes in or any info that i can be pre-armed with for when the both start blaming each other on where i stand ? Thank You
  12. Hi Pm'd back ... sorry but I asked again about the alloys lol . Should have read here first
  13. I have what I think are rubber valves but heres a pic .... Also is there any issue with me running 235/40/19 on 19" Ford alloys https://www.jenningsmotorgroup.co.uk/shop/view/2013283-ford-mondeo-19-alloy-wheel-black/ I have a 1.5 Ecoboost hatchback 2015 with a retractable towbar .... it says on the alloy wheel page "Combination with tow bar only possible on vehicles from 10/2015" I think mine was first registered in 03/2015. But why would having a retractable genuine Ford towbar mean I cant have 19" Ford alloys ??? I don't see the issue personally ... I don't have a caravan .... its only for a bike carrier with maximum of 3 bikes but normally only 2 road bikes . I have used an alloy wheel convertor page and from what I have currently to the new 19" set up means the speedo is only 0.57% out which is nothing . If my speedo says 30mph I'm actually doing 29.7 . http://www.willtheyfit.com/index.php?width=235&aspect=50&diameter=17&wheelwidth=7.5&offset=55&width2=235&aspect2=40&wheel_size=19&wheel_width=8&offset2=55 Sorry for the questions .
  14. You don't have a link to the oem sensors at this price do you ... I cant find any ?
  15. Interesting idea but I think I would want the sensors anyway .
