I have had a good search on the web and have basically run out of things to check with my ford focus 2.0 2009. The battery had failed due to a very cheap one being installed last time, which is now rectified with a good quality silver-calcium based one. Now when starting the car I have no front demister light on button and it doesn't work and the aftermarket head unit also doesn't work. If I jump the switched live on the radio to +12v the radio works fine. There is no switched live behind the front panel (orange line) and no fault codes via OBD I am thinking that in cranking the car when it was nearly dead has damaged some piece of electronics or a relay has failed. All the fuses are good in foot-well and under the bonnet and does anyone know of the position of the relay that deals with ignition live. There is also no battery drain once everything has gone to sleep (10mins or so) I am working through the wiring diagram on the post above but any ideas on where to check. I have also borrowed another spare identical GEM unit and it makes no difference. I have found this fault listed a few times but no solution except a ford garage changed the harness and it started working again but that sounds unlikely. Also in plugging in the modified Hi-can bus cable I made I have checked and the demister is activated via elm and should work. Many thanks for any advice, Also if anyone in Hertfordshire ever needs the modified elm cable to reset or adjust any settings then let me know.
Taffyford posted a topic in Ford Fiesta ClubHi there I have a ford fiesta mk5 x reg. I was hoping someone could help me out with a few things with my car. I can't seem to find the boot release button and I've looked everywhere! How can it not have one? Also there is no tachometer, that rev meter thing....I mean how can a car not have a rev meter I'm so confused?! And one last thing..does anyone mk5 owners know how to replace the tailgate contact plate because mines is broken and my rear demister is not working. Thanks for reading this and I hope someone can help me.
