  1. Hi all, I would appreciate any help I get on this one its driving me nuts. I will try to be as detailed as I can I know you are all thinking it’s a faulty EGR valve but let me explain. I brought a ford Mondeo 2006my 2.0 TDCI 130BHP for the missus yesterday. As soon as we get it home the orange light starts to flash with a small loss of power, not exactly limp home mode though!! I have had the fault codes read and the only one found by a friendly AA man is P0406 which I know points to the EGR valve. However I have changed the EGR valve for the one off my car (the same model) and tested it using the vacuum pipe directly from the brake servo while the old EGR valve was connected. So I know this works. I also fitted the old EGR valve off the new car to my car to see if the fault occurred and it did. So I thought hay presto problem fixed the new car was running fine no faults no light great. NO once the car cooled down the orange light came back on again. Reading the many forums and fantastic advice given my attention then went to the EGR solenoid which I tested with a multi meter and got a reading of between 12-13 ohms but just in case I also swapped it for mine just to get the new car working. After this took it for a test drive once the fault cleared (as I don’t have a reader took about 20 restarts) all was great again. Again NO once the car had cooled down the light came back on again with again a slight loss of power. Can anybody help this is driving me crazy I don’t want to take it to a garage as I am more than capable of changing out parts if I know what needs changing. Any help would be appreciated Thank you Jason
  2. Hi There!

    Hi all, I am currently driving in a 1.3 Fiesta Finesse which I have had for just over a year and I'm just looking for some advice on things to do to my fiesta to make look a bit cooler and general up keeping of my wee ford. Thanks for reading!

    Hi guys, this is actually a Volvo S40 1.6d but it is the same DV6 engine used in the fiesta in a 95bhp version and also the focus.. The car was fine until the battery died. So tried to jump it and it wouldn't go. Managed to bump start it to get it home but the power steering, abs and lights were not working at all whilst I drove home 10 miles. The car wouldn't start again not even the click of the solenoid. Changed battery to a brand new Bosch battery and the car won't start. Everything else works now but the car won't turn over. The starter solenoid clicks but the motor doesn't turn. So to diagnose i did the usual things. Check fuses, relays and wiring etc. nothing was broken so checked the starter. I removed it from the car and wired it to run straight from a battery off a car and it works perfectly. So I reinstalled it to the car and it still won't work. I ran a wire direct from the battery to the starter so when I turn the key the starter motor turns. Sure enough the engine will turn over. But the car still won't start. Seems like it's cutting the fuel which makes me wonder if this is an issue with ecu/cem? I tried both key and I don't think it's the immobiliser. The only other thing I've noticed that also isn't working is the hazard lights don't flash when locking/unlocking the car. The red light flashes though on the dash. When you unlock the car the light goes off. Anyone ever come across this issue? I've tried everything within my knowledge but it's looking like a main dealer job. Any help is greatly appreciated! Cheers!!
  4. Hello all! Of course, I'm new here, and I've been asking all over the net about my issue. I've been getting lots of great hints, ideas and advice, but figure that too much information in this case is better than not enough. In short, my family's car is a New Zealand registered 2008 base model Ford Mondeo Sedan. It is a European Ford from Belgium I believe? The vehicle is powered by a 2.0L 'Duratec-HE' engine. The problem is when we turn the key to start the car, there is no cranking at all, just clicking. There is an 'Immobilser Active' warning, strange flickering and whining in the cabin, and strange noises coming from under the hood. We not long completed a road trip of around 900kms return, and the car didn't miss a beat! Yet the very next day. she spat the dummy and wouldn't crank. All I can say is thank goodness it decided to wait till it was home parked in the garage to stop, rather than 5 or 6 hours away from home!!! Anyway, I have put 3 clips on YouTube to show what's happening. They will take around 2-3 minutes to view. 1. 2. 3. Is this going to be an expensive fix? I'm praying not! Anyway, thanks for viewing / reading and thanks for sharing your thoughts! William.
