  1. Hey, Throwing this out there for anyone who may know. Recently the ac & recirculate buttons on my focus (2012 Mk3) stopped working. They usually light up when pressed, but no light and no function. Fans work fine tho. Checked the fuses (all 3 locations), all looked fine relating to aircon. My mate said the gas might be low; but it;s only been running for 5 years and I have no warning lights. Is that possible? Cheers,
  2. Hi all. I have a 2005 Ford Focus Mk2 that I bought last year. When I got it the air con was noisy and didn't cool. Since then: I had it serviced and a split pipe replaced between the compressor and the condenser. After a few weeks it stopped working again and I had the condenser radiator replaced. A couple of months later and it died again and needed a new seal (I'm not sure where). It's been working for a couple of months now, but it's dying again The condenser and seal were done by a garage in Plymouth, but I've since moved to Guildford although I often visit Poole. So can anyone recommend a specialist near Poole or Guildford that might be able to sort it once and for all? Or might I have more luck with a Ford dealer?
  3. Focus MK2 Drivebelt?

    Hey guys. Leaving my car in to get the timing belt and water pump done next week and I'm wanting to get the main drive belt done as well. My car has aircon, so i think it has two different belts? The air con belt looks almost new but the main belt (Alternator, water pump, etc) is looking a bit worse for wear. What I'm wondering is, is it possible to just change the one belt? Or will I need to change both? Also, I've been looking at belts on eurocarparts and was wondering if this one would fit? http://www.eurocarparts.com/ecp/c/Ford_Focus_1.6_2005/p/car-parts/belts-chains-and-tensioners/engine-parts/car-drive-belt/?202777285&1&0d3d200c076dbb0a8307066a2f3f98037cabac16&000108 Thanks.
  4. Hello, Ford Fiesta MK6 2003 1.4 16V Black Special Edition, Ref: Heater Controls / Dials With Air-Con. At the back of the unit, how many electrical sockets? 3 plugs: 2 black and 1 white? There are two variants apparently. Have posted some pictures, including a photo of the back of a Fiesta MK6 typical Air-Con/Heater Control Unit. Please help, and verify how many sockets with colours on the back of the control unit for a MK6 Black Special Edition 2003.
  5. Few issues with my ecoboost...

    Hi all, Have just got a few issues with my 5 door mk 7.5 fiesta titanium x that I was wondering if anyone could provide a solution to. 1. Start Stop doesn't seem to work anymore 2. One touch only works for the passanger window 3. Aircon doesn't work - probably just needs regassing? 4. The button for the windscreen washer doesn't work. The previous owner use to disconnect the battery quite a bit for security reasons so I think that may have caused some of the issues. Regards, TheScoobyCollector.
  6. Aircon issues. Please help! I have a MK4 Mondeo 2012 plate. I recently had the condenser changed due to a bird strike. Condenser was changed and the system regassed. The aircon was working fine, blowing approx. 5 C at the vent. Everything was working fine until the period of hot weather. I was driving, aircon working fine, stopped and parked for about 15 minutes, when I restarted, the aircon was blowing outside air. I took it back to the garage that carried out the work and the pressure in the system was just above 12 bar, they also could not drain the system. I carried out some investigation. When I press the aircon button on idle, there is no drop in revs The compressor fails to engage The 15A fuse is good The cooling fan engages as it should when the engine gets hot. There are no codes on my OBD reader On the aircon self-test (I have the touch screen) it has 2 error codes 0xff and 0x4f, I have no idea what they mean or where I can find that info out without paying Ford. I drained a bit of gas to see if it had been overfilled (high pressure switch) What should I do next and / or what do people think is wrong?
  7. Hello, I've got a 2003 Fiesta with an aircon panel similar to this one When I put the fan onto 0 I still get air coming through the vents. It does it on both hot and cold... Anyone got any ideas Cheers :)
  8. Can anyone clarify the way the manual climate control is supposed to work on my 66 Plate Fiesta St-Line 140. The manual says that the heated rear screen is the button on the right marked as E in the diagram, mine are the other way round. The A/C button marked as F in the diagram has either a red or orange light on it, what does the different colour mean? On these cold mornings all I want is warm air to the screen so I wind the Dial D round to the red area and turn the dial A to the required fan speed and that then turns on the A/C light at F. I can then turn the A/C off and just have the fan blowing, what's the difference they both give out warm air whether the A/C light is on or not. If I switch the fan off and then turn it back to any speed 1 to 4 the A/C light then come back on again? Doesn't seem very logical to me...
  9. Mondeo 1.8 TDCI 2007 My aircon has been less than satisfactory for a very long time (tepid at best). I took it to a Ford agent about two years ago for a service. They checked out the system, checked it for leaks, and re-gassed it. If anything it was slightly better in that it was slightly cooler, definitely not what you would say cold. I have now decided to have another look at it. With full aircon on I have a low pressure of 30 psi at 65 degs F and the compressor always comes in when the aircon button is pressed on the panel. The pollen filter has also been changed. I have noticed however that the main cooling fan only runs occasionally but doesn't seem to affect the operation of the compressor. The indicated temperature on the dash panel once the engine is up to temperature is about 90 degs (needle in the middle) and never moves. I keep reading that for the aircon to work properly the cooling fan must be running all the time. As mine only runs occasionally what do you think would be causing this? Roger
  10. Hi guys. I cannot for the life of me find the low pressure air con port! I've check behind the wheel arch, under the headlights and behind engine. Hopefully someone can help! Thanks.
  11. Coolant/heater hose.

    Hi Guys, I've got a coolant pipe leaking on my 1.6 tdci focus, noticed it just when I had hit 150k miles. I had been having coolant leaking issues before, but I thought I had addressed them with pouring in K-seal, but turns out not. The coolant drops to a certain level about 1/8 of the res tank and doesn't leak any further, probably because there is not enough pressure in the system. (that's my non mechanics thinking), but I don't get warm air. Now I've located the leak or at least one of them, and it's a split hose, behind the engine block, it's a braided hose, and there is one above the other looks something like this - http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FORD-FIESTA-FUSION-1-4-TDCI-HEATER-HOSE-UNIT-2001-2008-2S6Q-8K512-AA-/271974904806?hash=item3f52f7b3e6:g:eOgAAOSwu4BV5yaU the thing is I can't find something that looks anywhere near similar to this for the 1.6tdci engine... I've got the 90hp non dpf version of the dv6 engine in mine... Maybe you guys can help me out... I will go to the garage this weekend or friday if they're open for them to replace it, but I want to know if I could source the pipe myself or even replace it myself to save some costs as I've already done so with the brake disks and the pads. :) Thanks
  12. Ford Focus 2014 Aircon

    The aircon on my 2014 Focus failed after about 8000 miles and it being just over 1 year old. The garage want £470 to fix it and say it isn't a warranty item as the condensor has been damaged by road debris. I've spoken to Ford Customer care and they are taking the side of the garage. My argument is that if it has been damaged at such a low mileage then the condensor is not adequately protected and it is a design fault and Ford should pay for the repair (or at a minimum contribute). Ford however completely disagree and say they are unwilling to help in any way whatsoever. Naturally I'm concerned this problem may re-occur. Is anybody aware of this being a common problem, or can anybody offer any advise as to what I might do? Thank you
  13. I have a 2002 ford focus and recently the heater/blower only works on settings 2,3,4. Setting 1 doesn't work As it was not a major issue I didn't worry too much about it, but due to recent hot weather I switched on the Aircon and on level 1 the A/C light comes on but the blower doesn't work, when I switch to level 2,3,4 then the A/C light goes out and A/C doesn't work? Can anyone offer any advise how to fix and what this is? Is this a simple fix or is it a garage repair? What should it cost? Neil
  14. Hi, I purchased my Focus Mk2 last month and it has been running fine with no problems. I noticed last week that my fan carried on running when I turned the engine off due to it overheating - there wasn't any coolant left so i topped it up and all was well for another couple of days... Again it ran out of coolant yesterday and i found a leak in the joins of the pipes that supply the heater matrix behind the panel in the driver foot well. Having replaced the o rings and resealing it seemed to stop the leak in this please BUT there is now a MAJOR leak in the heater matrix which is draining the whole coolant around in around 1 minute. In short i can get hold of a new heater matrix relatively easy, but how hard are they to fit? anyone have step by step? I have heard you have to take the whole dash out and garages can quote 400+ for this to be done - which funds will not allow! I have also seen that you can cut the plastic cover for the heater matrix and get it out this way is this true? Help with this ASAP is required as i am without a car until this is sorted!!!!
  15. I've a 10 plate Titanium fiesta which has developed a bizarre noise. Every now and then, a shuddering/grumbling noise starts at the front (makes the pals vibrate!). It sounds rough, and clicks in and out - I'm 90% certain it's the aircon but not sure. It sometimes does it when you switch off - key off and the grumbling noise continues for about 5 seconds (an not the cooling fan spinning, the grumbling noise that makes the car shudder!). Any ideas? I'm going to try and get a video tomorrow.... D.
  16. Hi, I have recently bought a Ford Focus 2006 1.6, which means I still haven't driven it in a warm day. So I never tested the air conditioning system, just assumed it worked. But today I was changing the bulbs on the RHS headlight and realised that two of the air conditioning pipes were completely loose. Since I couldn't figure out how they were put together or find any blueprints, you guys are my last resource before I get the car checked by a specialist. Could anyone tell me whether this is normal or someone purposely detached them for some reason? Pics included. Thanks!
  17. I first thought it was just my imagination, but after switching the aircon off and then switching the the car off and back on again, I noticed that the aircon switches itself back on again automatically, I have the pre-facelift 2011 Titanium model but without auto climate control. can anyone give me some insight on why the car keeps on switching the aircon on after the car has been switched off and back on again, is this a setting? sins its in the middle of winter here in SA I would prefer not having to switch the aircon back off again every time I start the car? I have attached a pic, hopefully you can see the type of aircon I have
  18. Ford Focus Mk1: Heater fan blower works only on setting 4 and no aircon This symptom is (usually) caused by the blowing of the thermal fuse in the fan motor control resistor pack. (The resistive power drop is a really cheap way for Ford to control the current, and hence the speed of the fan).The reason the fan works on setting 4 and not on the other 3 settings is that the full speed setting 4 bypasses the resistors and the thermal fuse.[Those with A/C would also find that the A/C doesn't work at all, as it intentionally only works with fan speed settings 1-3.] This resistor pack is quite awkward to get at as it is located behind the glove box and some ducting for the heated air. The reason it is there is that Ford use the airflow from the fan to cool the resistor pack (which can get pretty damned hot!). However, with some squirming around on your back, a long shaft Philips screwdriver and so on it can be removed and replaced by a "normal person". [The Focus Haynes manual has a small section detailing the heater blower removal and the location of the resistor pack] In my case I had the A/C and the fan stop working on settings 1-3 a few years ago. The local garage replaced the resistor pack and everything was good again. A month or so later the new pack failed. Initially it was suspected that it was just a faulty pack so they fitted another free of charge. Again a few weeks later this second replacement failed. (This next bit may seem a bit dodgy!) The mechanic said that he had had this happen before on another customers car and that, in some frustration, they had soldered a wire across the thermal fuse to prevent it happening again and this had fixed their problem. With some concerns I gave him the go-ahead to do this and all seemed well until the winter, when the fan blower failed again. As the thermal fuse had been bypassed it didn't seem that this could still be the same issue but ... yes it was. The resistor pack had got so hot that the solder melted and the bypass wire fell off!! Clearly we had some other issue - and this is where the cheapness of Ford's design solution comes into play. In my case what was actually happening was that the fan was running slightly slower than expected particularly on setting 1. Some condensation from the A/C, or just incoming moisture, had slightly corroded the bearing for the fan motor so it wasn't turning as smoothly as it should. (In some cases I have heard of them squealing). As the airflow from the fan is used to cool the resistor pack eventually the pack gets too hot and blows the thermal fuse. This is most likely to happen on setting 1 since this has the least airflow and the highest power drop through the resistor pack. I removed the blower unit and cleaned and oiled the bearing, replaced the resistor pack (again) and it's still going well 6 years later.

  20. Hot Or What

    I had aircon recharge this was ok as very low and does not look like i have a leak but aircon still not working as no feed to pump so checked fuse thats ok can anyone help before the winter so i can get it going as garage want £60 to find fault i thought maybe switch although it does show on off working
  21. I was wondering if any of you guys on here have any idea about this. Basically my air con blows out hot air. I started with re gassing and still no change and noticed the clutch on the pulley was clicking in and out and that the gauge on the refill bottle was going up and down every time it clicked in and out, read possibly the lower sensor switch maybe at fault, had a fiddle with that and it seemed to sort the issue with the clutch clicking in and out but still hot air. I put the gauge back on and the needle seems to sit on the same spot and it wouldn't change if I added gas or released, also when the ac is off the needle went into the red but when on it goes into the green. If any one can help or had this same problem I would be so grateful as I just can't afford to pay garage prices and my 2 year old gets to hot in the car. Many thanks in advance fellas
