      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. Sync3 Firmware and Nav Updates

    F6 card, F7 card? No idea what you are talking about. Please elaborate?
  2. Sync3 Firmware and Nav Updates

    I don't doubt what you are saying iantt but how do you know this if Ford UK can't give me an answer? If it will be available soon any idea how much it will cost?
  3. Sync3 Firmware and Nav Updates

    Guys I'm having a right run around from the the dealer, Ford Technical and Ford Customer Relations with respect to what map should currently be installed and I'm not sure anyone in the UK are able to answer this seemingly simple question at this time. Can I ask those of you who have Sync 3 to look at this screen on yours and let me know what your Map Version is please? Also can you let me know if you are aware of recent-ish roads, that appear on other sat navs that are not shown on the in built sat nav thereby showing that your Sync 3 maps are not up-to-date? I keep getting told to update to WiFi. Lost count of how often I've tried and this map still appears to be 3 years old. My car was built in Dec 16. Thank you in advance. Jim
  4. Condensation in rear lights

    Its mentioned in the handbook. I get it as well. It says: Condensation in the Exterior Front Lamps and Rear Lamps Exterior front lamps and rear lamps have vents to accommodate normal changes in air pressure. Condensation can be a natural by-product of this design. When moist air enters the lamp assembly through the vents, there is a possibility that condensation can occur when the temperature is cold. When normal condensation occurs, a fine mist can form on the interior of the lens. The fine mist eventually clears and exits through the vents during normal operation. Clearing time may take as long as 48 hours under dry weather conditions. Examples of acceptable condensation are: The presence of a fine mist (no streaks, drip marks or large droplets). A fine mist covers less than 50% of the lens. Examples of unacceptable condensation are: A water puddle inside the lamp. Streaks, drip marks or large droplets present on the interior of the lens. If you see any unacceptable condensation, have your vehicle checked by an authorized dealer.
  5. Curtain Airbag recall

    Any idea why? Not that I'm complaining.
  6. Bi turbo diesel

    No justification needed and no offence intended. I didn't say I never go above 2000 rpm I just don't do it on every gear change and often miss a gear out on the way up. I am fully aware of the requirement for DPF regen and a quick look in the manual states: Drive your vehicle in more favorable conditions, which you will find at higher vehicle speeds in normal driving, on a main road or freeway for a minimum of 20 minutes. This drive may include short stops that will not affect the regeneration process. Avoid prolonged idling and always observe speed limits and road conditions. Do not switch the ignition off. Select a suitable gear to ideally maintain engine speed between 1500 and 3000 RPM. and as I do a lot of miles on motorways (11000 in last 6 months in the Edge) and at 70mph the engine is at 2000rpm that is well inside the figures quoted above from the manual so my 2000 rpm "pootling" will not only not damage my engine it will also not damage my clean licence. And as for saving a couple of MPG it will take an awful lot of miles to break even of the £2-300 for the remap and that is assuming no insurance premium increase on top. As I said, each to their own and now I'm going to pootle off and say no more on the subject.
  7. Curtain Airbag recall

    how strange! Chrome on work PC only shows VIN look up but Chrome on PC at home shows both. Still no outstanding recall for me.
  8. Curtain Airbag recall

    How are you guys finding out about this requirement? I have a MY17 car built in Dec 16 and have no info about the requirement. Another thing is I went to check on ETIS to see if it had been added there and you can no longer search against registration number When did that change?
  9. Bi turbo diesel

    As I seldom rev above 2000 rpm I doubt it! As I said, each to his own. I gave up on my "boy racer" urges a couple of decades ago when switched from petrol to diesel
  10. Bi turbo diesel

    If you guys are so keen to pimp up your Edges why don't you go to Superchips.co.uk who do actually list the Edge, both engines, complete with power curves. Don't quite "get it" myself but each to his own.
  11. Sync3 Firmware and Nav Updates

    My car was built in Dec 16. The map installed in the Sync 3 is EU 4 14! 2 years out of date at build, outrageous!
  12. Rear Camera

    I know
  13. Rear Camera

    I never had the pleasure of working with him. I just know him through gliding. Haven't seen him in years.
  14. Rear Camera

    Oh aye! Where do you know him from?
  15. Rear Camera
