      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. Focus 1.6 2007/08 Auto HELP TO BUY

    Breakdown cover is a necessity.
  2. Engine System Failure.

    Another message on the display today "Get Rid" I have taken that advice and gone for an Audi. Saved £130 on insurance and £60 on road tax
  3. Engine System Failure.

    Using just a generic code reader, Being in my late 70's I am sorry to say I am not into all this technology and would not know how to use it. Drives fine otherwise, It's no fun driving on the M3 Motorway since they done away with the hard shoulders. Sheer lunacy. Thank you Tom.
  4. Engine System Failure.

    Focus 1.6 MKII. Petrol. Automatic. Round trip of 300 miles and engine goes into limp mode five times. Displays shows "Engine System Failure". Stop the car and restart engine and all is fine. OBII Code Reader shows no codes which is what I would expect. Reading other forums this could be a multitude of faults from ECU, Throttle body, bad connections, wiring loom. sensors, etc. etc. It would appear Ford dealers are useless at this sort of problem. Anyone who can point me in the right direction before I throw good money after bad. Thanks in anticipation.
  5. What is this black box for.

    Thanks for replies, you learn something everyday.
  6. What is this black box for.

    My neighbour has a 2012 1.6 petrol Focus Titanium. He discovered a small black box just forward of the spare wheel, attached to the floor pan between the wheel and rear seats. The box has two wires running from it to who knows where, one black one yellow. Any Ideas?
  7. I Saw A Sierra Graveyard

    They were nice cars, I had one in 1962, it ran like a Singer sowing machine. so quiet.. Some hare brained stupid woman crashed into and wrote it off. My son actually cried when they carted it away on a transporter.
  8. Service

    Concur, imperative to use a six sided socket, Ford plugs have a nasty habit of rounding on the edges.
  9. Focus Mk2.5

    Thank you for the kind words Tom, I fit both categories, tight and old.
  10. Service

    Bit confused there as it states Oil Filter.
  11. Using piggy back fuse for dash cam

    I remember doing this many moons back on a Skoda Fabia. I took the transformer to bits, purchased a small electrical wiring box (Ebay) stuck the transformer in the box and then wired to an ignition feed. The box was hidden under the dash. It worked a treat.
  12. Blower motor.

    The same resistor is fitted in the Vauxhall Corsa, Chap on Ebay sells the small resistor fitted to the top for pence complete with two squeeze connectors. no soldering needed.
  13. Focus Mk2.5

    VAG... Don't knock it but I had a Skoda Octavia, even that was far superior to a Ford, bad mistake selling it to a cab company..
  14. fan speed

    No, far from normal
  15. The Ins and Outs of my Focus TDCi (2008)

    Well this a Mk II note position of indicators.
