  1. Hello all, Basically I loved my 2010 FORD FOCUS DIESEL HATCHBACK 1.6 TDCI STYLE 5DR [110] [DPF] MANUAL and had it up to 119500 miles. It regularly got up to 54-56 mpg when commuting 5mins on country roads, 20mins motorway driving. It was sitting at 53.6mpg when I sold her privately last night :( After a year of looking and waiting for the right car/deal I decided the time was right to upgrade and bought a private 2012 FORD FOCUS DIESEL HATCHBACK 1.6 TDCI 115 TITANIUM 5DR MANUAL (ECOnetic) version. It has 69000 miles, full service history and last weeks MOT shows 0 advisories. I am only getting 48mpg :( I am gutted about this. When asking fellow focus mk3 1.6 diesel users they are also getting 48/49mpg. I regularly use the cruise control at 70/74mph on motorway driving and think I drive efficently. The last service was 6months ago by a small garage in lancaster where i bought it. Is there a good chance the MPG on my new titanium focus will improve if I put the car through an arnold clark full service? I also miss the 2010 style's steering options of comfort, standard and speed :( I am wondering if I can do anything to improve the MPG? without doing silly stuff like driving down hills with no accelarator etc. Let me know if you need more information. Thanks very much Shaun
  2. Hi there, A few months ago I bought a Ford Fiesta 1L Ecoboost (125bhp), Titanium, 63 reg. I have been having no trouble with connecting my phone and others via bluetooth to Sync media, however when playing music via bluetooth my car does not display track names/artists, but it does when playing music via the USB wired connection. A friend of mine has a lower spec fiesta (zetec), but a newer model (14 reg) and can get their bluetooth mode to display track names... I have been warned that these systems wok better with android phones rather than iPhones (which is what I have) and it is an android phone that my friend uses. Has anyone found similar issues? Or knows whether a 63 reg car is simply not new enough to support the track name information when in bluetooth mode, despite being high spec? Both my Sync and iPhone software are on the most recent updates... Any ideas? Thanks! drward1
  3. Incoming Newbie

    Hi everyone. I'm picking up my 2014 Ford Fiesta this weekend. Its a Titanium X so full of gadgets :). Have any of you modified yours in anyway? I was also told when I paid for this that it has Sat Nav capabilities I just need an SD card with the software on, is that true? I've also attached a couple of photos :-).
  4. Hi guys, I live on the Costa del Sol and have just bought a 2010 Ford Focus Titanium. It is fitted with a Sony CD (Generation 2) audio unit, and pressing the CD/AUX button brings up USB as a menu option. I have also found in the unit behind the handbrake (under the armrest) a 12V power socket, an Aux jack socket, and a USB connector. When I connect a USB stick with mp3 songs on it the stick illuminates, indicating that it is powered, but then selecting USB from the CD/Aux menu it says USB not fitted! Am I doing something wrong, or is this USB connector just for charging?
  5. Hi everyone, This seems to be an issue posted couple of years ago but didn't find a solution. Apologies for my restricted car knowledge but keen to learn. Basically, I used to press the MAX button on my heating control unit and hot air used to blow within 10 seconds. Now, no matter what temp the car is set to, even at 30 degrees the car still blows cold air even after the car has been driving for hours. I've been told by Halfords that it's the "flap" which sounds right as when I used to turn the heating on there was a clear recognisable sound like a flap closing after 2 seconds and then the car would blow hot air in seconds. Now there is no such noise when I turn the heating on. He said along the lines the flap should close and blow hot air and open for cold air. At the moment its not closing? I've been told by one mechanic that I should just change the entire heating unit or something along those lines. If it is this "flap", which parts would I require to order? Thanks for looking! Rik
  6. So yesterday i had a 17 plate Audi S3 rear end me in the focus :( How i out-breaked him i don't, know but credit to Ford brakes ensuring i did not hit the child chasing his football into the road! My question is now, is an RS rear bumper a straight fit to my titanium or will the rear arches be wider and cause the bumpers to not sit flush? I also presume that the boot lids (mine has a nice dent now) are all the same throughout the mk2 facelift focus range? Meaning i can in theory get a replacement boot from any mk2 focus thats being broken for parts?
  7. Cant get into Focus

    Following on from my earlier thread about the mobile phone battery icon and mobile signal not showing on the left hand screen. I successfully updated the software last night using a usb stick and the icons were present and locked the car using the fob. Came out to go to work this morning and my car would not open using the fob or the manual key underneath the top cover any ideas? Does the manual key not work if the battery is completely dead etc? 2nd fob is the same.
  8. Hi All, I’m a newbie from Norfolk. Just picked up my new Mk 8 Fiesta today and so far, really enjoying it!
  9. Does a car of this year and model show mobile phone signal strength on the left hand screen? Cant seem to find it and my Wife's horrible orange display does! Driving me mad!
  10. Upgrades

    Recently bought a well specced 2013 titanium fiesta, low milage with zetec s exterior but only has a 80ps econetic engine, wondering if there are any upgrades I can make to the car to improve its performance. Cheers.
  11. Okay, so looking for your opinions on the pros and cons of each option, what's good, bad and ultimately...what's best. I've owned my mk7.5 fiesta 5 door Titanium since new...now three years old and I'm NOT about to spend another winter driving around with the crap bulbs that Ford seem to enjoy fitting as standard equipment! I'm looking to change all the bulbs out, front and rear, (and interior lights) in time for the winter months that will no doubt he here before we know it...so what should I go for? I'm really disappointed with the factory fitted bulbs on the headlights, but would quite like a more modern look so am considering HID's for main beam and Osram Nghtbreaker Laser or Unlimited for high beam. also thinking of using LED's for indicators, etc, but no idea how to tell a good LED from a lesser made product. only bulbs I'm thinking of leaving standard are front and rear fogs as I think I've used them probably twice since new and so really can't recall how effective they were, but given they're so rarely used I don't see the point in changing them out, unless they blow of course! Lastly I'm also trying to pluck the courage up to remove the headlamp units, bake them, open them up and go for the "black" look...any advice/suggestions on this would also be most welcome. 👍🏻 be interesting to read your thoughts...
  12. I'm looking to sell my Panther Black 2012 Ford Fiesta 1.4 Titanium with ST rear spoiler and sport front grille. If anybody is interested or knows anybody that is please contact me on this or by mobile (07727983864) and I can give more details. Thanks a lot, Johnny.
  13. Hi Guys been struggling now for a few weeks but have been trawling through websites and the most answers I have found have come from here so I am asking for more help specific to me... So Due to a flat battery I had to jump my battery but due to the mother in law!! love her to bits!! connected the + and - the wrong way round and killed my battery...so a new battery later making sure I got a Silver Calcium battery and I got the best one not the cheapo! and were back up and running but then after about 2 weeks the battery is going dead over night!...so there begins my google journey searching for my problem then the trip to the auto electrical shop and then back to halfords to replace a faulty new battery.... and then to start my google journey again.... anywho I have traced the battery drain to fuse 104 which is in the manual for "battery saver"....hmmm the irony and "internal lights" (no internal lights are staying on)so I have pulled fuse 104 and no more battery drain I have no interior lights which to be honest I can live without but What is the battery saver....during my google journey I found the wiring schematics for my model and after searching 137 pages 3 times I found fuse 104 and found that the battery saver relay is on the PCB of what every one is calling the ((GEM Module) which I call the Internal Fuse box) so its Soldered onto the main fuse box and on Ebay I can Buy one for £40-£400 but Matching up the Model numbers are proving Problematic as some people say they need to be programed to the car and others are saying as long as you match up a certain amount of numbers you can just replace then re-program the keys then your good to go....Anyone who has any insight please feel free to help Ford focus MK2.5.pdf
  14. I'm the new owner of a 14 plate Focus Titanium 1.0 ecoboost. I love it and it drives and performs like a dream. However, the central info screen has displays not covered in the owners manual. In radio mode it has a small battery icon and a bar graph icon displayed in the bottom right hand corner of the screen. The batter icon shows just under 'half full'. Nowhere in the manual does it say what these refer to. Can anyone help please?

  16. Just installed my brand new Xtrons PB76FSFAP-B head unit, and i love it... just tweeking the finer details on it. i would like to dim my head unit when the headlights come on as they are automatic anyway im told from some of the forums that there is an orange wire behind the unit that needs to be plugged into the headlight pin. does anyone have any material on which pin is for which on my wiring loom? the previous unit dimmed on headlights starting up so this is a good sign.
  17. Just bought a 2014 Titanium, dark metallic blue, with rear camera and satnav. about 30,000 on clock. It's a really nice car. Compared to my 2007 Fiesta Zetec, it's quicker acceleration wise, faster topspeed-wise, quieter(ish), more comfortable, more economical, more nimble, looks better, auto climate control. And five gears is easily enough - on the motorway, 4th was perfectly fine at 70 (2500 - 3000rpm) - 5th is a bonus. Disadvantages - the odd tiny rattle, resonance, vibration from various points in the cabin (hard to locate). ( The old Zetec was a little tank, absolutely solid, not a pipsqueak or rattle anywhere heard inside cabin). And also, road noise - does depend on the road surface type ( seems to be two types of surface on motorway). Overall, really pleased with the buy, so very happy. I would like to change the wheels. It has the titanium standard alloys , 15 spoke. I don't really like them. I was thinking of ... 8 spoke fiesta/Ka, ie ... http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FORD-FIESTA-KA-16-4-STUD-ALLOY-WHEEL-WITH-195-45-16-TYRE-5-5mm-TREAD/172608624207 or http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/like/172600939415?clk_rvr_id=1196437305875&vectorid=229508&lgeo=1&item=172600939415&rmvSB=true and finally http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/like/252836935672?clk_rvr_id=1196358495507&vectorid=229508&lgeo=1&item=252836935672&rmvSB=true Being dark blue car, probably go for silver or grey. I prefer the first one, the fiesta/ka. Is there anything I need to consider in terms of tyre size, wheel size etc ,,, is it exact size as my standard titanium 15 spokes? Cheers
  18. My mk 2.5 Titanium

    Hey everyone, I've just realised I've never posted pics of my car, so here she is. 1.8 Sea grey Titanium I came close to purchasing a black titanium, but then this one came in the market and colour swung it for me, plus the added bonus of it running 18's too. I had to replace the rear boot handle as the clips had broken and a new 1.8 badge as the one had fallen off 🙈 and a new reversing light as the numpty who owned it before me couldn't wire one in to save his life. Im not gonna go crazy on mods, I've done that on my last two cars, do this one is gonna have more subtle ones. So far Scuff plates and genuine mats all the interior lights apart from the glove box lights have been changed to led. Additional boot light too but I'll get a pic of that once it's dark, and the side, main and full beam lights have been changed too. Next will be a set of Eibachs and maybe change the washer jets Ill post more pics as soon as I can.
  19. Mk 7 1.4l or 1.6l Petrol?

    Hello I am looking to buy a used Mk 7 Fiesta. I will do around 1000 miles a month (200 on motorway, 50 in city a week) until October, and from then on it will be city driving so around 5000 miles annually so this is why I'm choosing petrol over diesel. I would like to have Bluetooth if not then definitely USB and AUX . I know titanium has all of this but not sure which other trim levels do as standard (maybe Zetec?) Currently when I drive at 70 it does just over 3000rpm in my mk6.0 1.3l petrol. I understand the newer engines are more fuel efficient and do more revs at high speeds (3000rpm at 60mph in 1.4l, that's what I've read online). I just wondered how many revs the 1.4l does at 70mph compared to the 1.6l engine and which one is worth looking at. I have a £4,000 budget any suggestions?
  20. Sony Head Unit Sub Install

    Hi all, 1st post and I'm wondering if it's possible to install a sub using my stock Sony Head Unit. I'm unsure if I need a converter or if the back of my stereo has the capability. I have nothing but the sub so any help to cabling would be awesome. Sub with a built in AMP Fiesta Titanium 61 Plate Thanks in advance people!!
  21. Focus Titanium LED Reg light

    Hi all, Searched this in the forum but couldn't find a topic on it. I have Blueish Side Lights, Wing Mirror Lights, Reverse Lights, and 8000K HID Dipped Beam & Fog Lights.

  22. Titanium engine upgrade

    Hi guys, I'm sort of new to the forum, constantly reading threads on it, but never made an account. I have a Ford Focus Titanium 61 Plate 1.6 TDCI I have been been looking to upgrade most of my hoses under my hood, however I am struggling for a kit to buy, as most websites only supply the ST Silicone Hose kits. I have made the mistake of ordering 1 for my turbo and it was a totally wrong fit. Not many people upgrade their engine on this car therefore it's hard to come by parts, maybe if someone can point me in the right direction, it will help anyone else who has the same problem. Can anyone help? Thanks
  23. What does DYB mean?

    Hi. Recently bought a Focus titanium my12. Now i have a question: It says DYB in some certain places in the info paper we got, and if you search on Google you can find focus (DYB). Does anyone here know what it means?
  24. Hey, wanted to make this thread to show other people who maybe are planning to do the same to their Ford Focus and also to take new ideas from any of you. We own a quite unique model of the Ford Focus. Its a 2.0 TDCI with 110hp automatic which I have never seen before. You can find more information about it here: http://www.automobile-catalog.com/car/2010/968675/ford_focus_2_0_tdci_110_ghia_dpf_powershift.html Anyway, when we got it, it look like a normal Zetec S but since then we have done the following: - RS Spoiler - Painted the Zetec S back diffuser black - Painted the bonnet tip - RS replica rims - Tuned the car back to it's original 140hp. What's next? I have been looking at some RS grills for the front, but I'm not sure how it would look like on this color of the car. We have just recently installed a Zetec S front splitter from triplercomposites.com which you can find images from at the bottom at the thread. Do you have any other ideas to do with the car? If some are wondering: the car has Ford's improved Sony stereo and has AUX. We are planning to add DAB+ adapter. Here are some images: Currently I only have this image of the new front splitter: (The rims you see is for the winter tires.)
  25. Hi all, I have owned my 2010 Titanium Mondeo for a couple of years now and think it's a great car. About a year ago I adjusted the drivers seat in the car and the airbag warning light started to come on and on intermittently when starting the car. The situation stayed this way throughout the winter but then seemed to fix itself when the weather warmed up (from Spring etc.). However, the problem has now returned and the airbag light is now permanently on when i start the car up. I've looked as various solutions online but nothing has worked to this point. This seems to be a very common problem yet I have not found a solution. Obviously I will put it into a garage to see if they can diagnose what is going on but is there anyone that can help me? Kind regards Sean
