      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums.

The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. Hi, Been trying to look through for an answer, I got a 15 plate Focus MK4 and it has daytime running lights, Im pretty sure that when I got it the rear lights came on as well as the front, but now only the front lights are on. When i press the fob to open the car front and back come on, when I open the door front and back are on, but when I start the engine the rear dont come on unless I put my road lights on. has a button been accidentally pressed or is there a fix or is this normal, car is due a service soon wondering if this will be covered. many thanks for any help mclarenf1racer.
  2. Phil's Build Thread

    I never usually do this but I've never really had a car worth posting about before. I've recently become the proud owner of a 1.6 TDCI Ti Nav in Panther Black and I love it! I still want to bugger about with it and I want to put together a list of mods I want to do and stuff I want to buy (more for keeping track myself than anything else) and I'd appreciate any opinions, recommendations and links people may have. Firstly, there are some givens. Mine has the auto mirror and rain sensors but the upper section of the cover is missing. Didn't spot this before buying due to the way I was sat but I have to say it's niggling! If anyone has the part number I'd appreciate it! I also want to get some decent mats, preferably rubber but obviously fitted for the studs in the floor. Also a boot liner (hatchback). I'll be replacing as many bulbs as possible with LEDs, though I have read a lot of reliability issues with some sidelights. After those, the rest are in the 'maybe' pile I quite like the idea of wind deflectors but don't want the Halfords-Nailed-On look. Opinions? Illuminated gear knob would be nice (working on that one), maybe even the scuff plates... Bonnet lifters Reverse camera Front parking sensors (can be retrofit?) Some nice looking pedal covers DRLs. Preferably oem but price would probably mean 'fang' style Colour changing ambients. Following another thread I think this is possible Front window tint 18" alloys to replace my 16's Front bumper lip. Remap. New front and rear badges ( rear is going white round the edge and front has one hell of a stone chip - I read somewhere dealers replace these for free on less than 10 year old cars?) topped with gel coats. LED reflectors. I've seen this done with twin intensities for side and brake lights. Dunno how much of this will ever get done but it's nice to have a list! I also have a couple of questions if anyone can answer: Can the SYNC voice control be programmed to activate my phone directly? Or can the command choices for SYNC 1 be improved with a software update? Is there a way to re-calibrate the trip computer? My instant mpg is nearly always 99.9 when cruising at any speed and only drops when accelerating hard. £20 of fuel apparently buys me 700+ miles... What is the button nearest the driver for below the air con controls? I'll put up a pic if needed but the one I mean is next to the disable start/stop button in the same bank as the front and rear window heaters. It's blank in mine but I'd be interested to know if I can put whatever it is in! Heated seat maybe?
  3. Focus Mk3.5 No Drls

    Hey, I have a new 2015 Focus Mk3.5 Zetec, only thing which I find a bit strange is why there are no day time running lights? I wasn't expecting LED ones, but like I have a 2014 Fiesta Zetec which has them using normal bulbs, and I have even seen them on all the Ford transit vans now. So I was expecting the Focus which is the latest newer model to definitely have them, seeing as virtually all new cars do now. Has anyone got any idea what Ford were thinking?? The Ford dealer did contact me to ask me what I thought of the car, this is like a courtesy call they must be forced to make by Ford. I told them I was a bit disappointed but they showed absolutely no interest. Anyways, apparently the optional original factory fitted LED headlights cost £237.31 each plus around £230 fitting and reprogramming. This is subject to the wiring being there. I got this info from another Ford garage parts department that were a lot more helpful. I don't think I can justify paying out for them now, I should have added them as part of the appearance pack that's available. However, I do feel pretty short changed when I see cheap smart cars, Vauxhalls, and white Transit vans driving round with them!
  4. I own a 2007 Ford Five Hundred SEL. I just got some great DRL from iJDMToy. I want these lights to come on with the ignition. I checked my fuse box and found there's a fuse slot for Fog Lightsa, not in use. I connected the positive wire of fogs to the fuse slot, tested both ends, no matter what I do (and no matter what fuse I try) the lights stay ON and do not turn on/off with ignition on/off, they just stay ON. How can I connect these so the Ignition on/off (which is only a relay not a fuse) turn on/off my lights?
  5. Hi there - I have a Zetec S which I've fitted with a strip of white LED DRLs under the headlamp units. The strip of lights show individual lights as seen in the DRLs of the first gen. Audi R8. I've noticed out on the road that all new Audi models have a new form of DRLs in a continuous light 'bar'. Rather than seeing individual lights, it is one strip of light. In my opinion, these look much crisper and cleaner than the ones I have installed. You can also find these 'bar DRLs' (as I call them), in various configurations, on some Mercedes and Volvos too. Firstly (if anyone knows what the hell I'm on about), does anyone know what they're called?? Secondly, can they be bought and installed as with my previous set? All help is welcome - I am completely stumped by this one... Alex
