      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. Heater Stuck On Hot

    Hi I have a 2001 1.25 Fiesta. About 2 weeks ago the heater only produced hot air. I suspected the heater valve and replaced it. Same problem i.e. the valve doesn't close off the hot water flow to the heater matrix. Testing the electrical input I get about 6/7 volts with the heater dial on hot, reducing the heat produces a pulsed voltage which reduces down to zero with the heater off. The power doesn't seem to trigger the valve. Shouldn't the power be 12 volts? Why is the water flow stuck on and not off with the power disconnected? Any help appreciated. Chimneys999
