  1. 2008 Focus Headlight Replacement

    Hi, My current headlight is damaged, i have seen them on amazob for approx fifty quid. These state that "bulbs and bulb holders not included"...... the bulbs not being included is fine.... as i obviously already have them. But how easily transferred are the bulb holders into the new unit??? Thanks
  2. Hi there, I'm new to this site, has anyone got a answer to my problem. 2008 1.8 tdci s max, when I turn corners with a tight steering lock my Abs/traction control warning light come on and don't go off until I switch the ignition off. There was a bracket under the o/s/f wheel arch fitted the wrong way round and was pulling the abs sensor wire when on full lock, but this has been turned round the correct way and the abs sensors changed in case it caused any damage. The abs and traction control are both working fine, it's just this !Removed! warning light that I have run out of ideas with. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Ken
  3. I thought I'd share what my problem was and how it was resolved.I have a 1990 Mk4 Escort Eclipse and when the dipped beam was turned on the o/s light went to side light only but the n/s dipped beam worked.I tried all the earths I could find. One near each headlight - brown wires. Two on the o/s A pillar behind the speaker. The rear lights. Earths were not the problem.I tried the two white relays in the fuse box towards the rear of the car. Not the problemI lifted the fuse box expecting a corroded connection. Not the problemI tried three different switches. Not the problem.The resolution to the problem was a BLUE RELAY that is located just above the pedal box inside the car. It is a 5 pin relay with the numbers 866614K083AA 41212  4RD003520-34   40/35A 12V.I'd like to find a spare relay but can only find one used one on the bay of death for £25. Does anyone know of a supply of new ones cheaper? 
  4. Ford Fiesta Problem!!! Help

    Hellooo, I have a 1.4 diesel ford fiesta, which is 10 years old now. Recently it's started to cut off randomly, it feels as if the engine goes off for a couple seconds and then starts again. The battery light and the engine light comes on when doing this, but only for a second. It tends to do this when in 5th gear at around 50mph-60mph, which is around 2000rpm. The car has been in a garage all week and no fault comes up! Also, every now and again the 'transmission light'? (i think) comes on, (looks like a cog with a ! in) and goes into limp mode, where is makes it impossible to go over 5mph and very jumpy. Once i switch the car off and on again it goes fine. Has anyone had this problem before? Thanks in advance!
  5. Hi all I'm new to this forum so hello. I'm a fiesta zetec owner and have just bought my son his first car. It's a fiesta studio 2013 model. The petrol looks very low but no warning light has appeared. I know on mine it comes on just before I go into red. Please tell me that this model HAS a petrol warning light? I know it's a basic model but.... thanks
  6. No Spare Wheel In Newer Fiestas

    Hi, I recently bought a 3-yr-old Ford Fiesta Econonetic from a dealer to replace my much-loved Ford Puma which I'd had from new until it had to be retired after 15 years. Not quite as oomphy as the Puma - which I'd have bought again were it still made - I like my Fiesta. Recently, whilst in a remote village 60 miles from home, a rear tyre was pierced by a piece of flint thrown up by a passing vehicle. This was the point where I discovered that there is NO SPARE WHEEL. Instead, there is a can of something that one is meant to put into the tyre and which sets, allowing the car to be driven, but only UP TO 10 miles. As a result, having left home early afternoon, I ended up coming home just before midnight on a tow truck.Thank goodness I had car rescue membership. I don't know when this "new improved" system was introduced so perhaps it's just worth checking that you actually have a spare wheel and not an aerosol.
  7. Hi All, Just bought myself a 56 plate Fiesta Zetec 1.25 petrol. Picked it up today and found that the red snowflake light is constantly on and the outside temperature is showing up as -36 degrees. I know that the dealer I bought it from steam cleaned the engine before I purchased it so I'm guessing this is whats caused the light to come on. Can anyone advise on the best course of action to take to rectify this and how much it may cost? Thanks!! Al

  9. I have the solid yellow engine light on the past two weeks. I had it checked with a scanner and the two issues that recur after the system is reset (it hadn't been scanned in a long time) are: 1. P1709: PNP Neutral Position Switch Out of Test Range 2. P0420: Catalyst System Efficiency Below Threshold (Bank 1) I am quite technical/money poor right now so I'd like to learn to fix these myself. From what I've been told the cat is impossible to test (you can't open it, just replace it. Also, I have the feeling its not this as it passed its NCT/MOT 2 months ago and the emissions were fine - wouldn't they have caused trouble? As for #2 - I have absolutely no idea what that is? What is my best path to take if I want to investigate these errors myself?
  10. I've a Focus 1.6 tdci 2009 and I have a big triangle light up filling the whole display say 'Engine Malfunction' The car seems to be running fine and the engine sounds like it always did! I wondering why this light has come on and what I can do about it!
  11. I've just bought a 54 plate Focus C-Max 1.6 diesel. The previous owner told me that he has very recently changed the battery and since then there has been this beeping sound from the dash. It is a long beep that sounds for about 3 seconds every couple of minutes. Any suggestions on what could be causing it and how to rectify?
  12. Engine Malfunction

    I have a 2011 1.6 TDCI Focus I got the car with 40 something k miles on the clock I drove 100 miles a day for 6+ months its up at 66+k now. Until this point no issues it started first time every time not even a niggle. The closest thing to a problem I had was rear brakes jamming in cold weather. The car was serviced recently . One day I went shopping parked in a multi story and when I went back the car would not start. Eventually with a nasty noise (a bit like when gears change with a crunch but more metalic) it did start ran for a few seconds then displayed engine malfunction and would not start again. Called out recovery who sprayed easy start and got it going a few more times but each time the same thing happened. It was hit whilst being repaired and is in the body shop now. When it comes out and they take their courtesy car back I wont have transport and I cant just scrap it because its on Hire Purchase. Any ideas what the root cause might be. The garage it was at thought it may be the starter changed that out and the issue remains.
  13. Hi all, Curious to know if anyone can offer any advice/support. I've had my Kuga Titanium X 2.0 Diesel for 6 months and i'm having so much trouble with constant 'Engine Malfunction' red triangle warnings. Has been in and out of the local Ford garage 5 times now, plus 2 RAC call outs. Every time, by the time they have come to look at it, the fault clears so nothing shows up on the diagnostic. However clearly there is a problem as it keeps doing it and have been been told about the same problem on a friends. So far have have paid out for 3 diagnostic reads, cleared fault codes 3 times, and replaced DPF sensor - none of which seem to have helped so I can't even tell if that was money well spent. Despite having read some forums and had some advice from an RAC friend about faults, Ford keep telling me there's nothing wrong with the model, and I seem to be banging my head against a brick wall. Typically it's out of warranty. The final straw the other day was when it juddered to a halt in when I was on a main road on my way to work, causing total chaos as I just couldn't do anything with it. As an automatic it doesn't take a car expert to acknowledge that, that isn't right. So, any advice welcome. At least if I can show the 'all denying' Ford garage there are some common faults it might make them do something a bit more helpful than just plug it in to a computer and tell me it's fine! :-/ Thanks for any help you can offer Neil
  14. Hi there, I have a 2010 Focus so I guess that would be the Mk 2.5 variation. My driver's side headlight doesnt work and I've narrowed the problem down to a relay, through testing voltages on the headlight cluster plug, swapping clusters etc etc. There is a clicking noise under the glove box whenever I turn my light switch from side lights to headlights so I want to check that relay as I'm 99% sure that's the problem. The thing is, I can hear the clicking as clear as day coming from the glove box when sitting inside the car, but for the life of me I can't see the relays! The fuse board has all the fuses etc but I can't see any relays, my board is the same as this one http://i34.tinypic.com/2rh5xti.jpg The only difference between my board and the one in this picture is mine doesnt have a black relay on the left at the top. I've never done anything to this fuse board and never modded my car and I bought it from an SMC branch so everything should be as stock. I bought it in 2012 and the headlights have been working up until about a week ago. Can anyone help me with where the relays are under the glove box please? i'm going mad and in need my headlight working :) Thanks, Matt.
  15. Desperate for help from UK Ford owners.. I am in Russia and my girlfriend owns the car. She keeps having the visit the Garage and they are now charging to extinguish the orange light - saying she is buying 'bad petrol' She is buying the recommended fuel. Could this be true - or is it a common fault ? Car drives fine I am now IN Russia and ready to go to the garage to ask why a car under warranty - needs to have paid work done. Is my g/f being 'diddled' and treated as if she is a dumb blonde ? )))
  16. Tps System Question

    Hi, Over the last few days I have had the check tyre pressures warning come on, before going back off. It will then come back on again sometime a couple of mins later, before going back off. Clearly I checked the tyre pressures at the garage and all seem to be ok, so I am a little confused. I was thinking maybe this is picking up some slow puncture? However, if this is the case is their any way of working out which tyre is causing the issue? Maybe I am missing something really obvious here when it comes to finding out which tyre is causing the issue?
  17. Hi Guys & Gals, I have a problem with my Ford Escort Van 2001 Model. I had my lights warning buzzer working a treat along with the interior light upon opening the doors. I shorted out the interior light to the roof whilst I had the drivers side door open when re-fitting it. As soon as this happened the drivers side door no longer activates the light and buzzer. However, the passenger side door does activate the light AND strangely the buzzer. I know the door switch pins are a common fault and so I switched the known working one from the passenger side to the drivers side and vice versa.... the known working switch wouldn't work on drivers side BUT the drivers side switch worked in passenger side. So I now know the switches are BOTH fine. Any ideas? Bearing in mind both switches are fine from the above test, the buzzer is working as it activates via pass door and the light works as it activates via pass door.... Strange one. Thanks in advance
  18. Engine Warning Light

    Hi, I'm very much new to this site, but my recent problem is not a new thing with this car. About 30mins after refuelling my car, the engine warning light came on and, aside from what smelled like burning, there's nothing seemingly wrong with the car. I've done the dashboard test and three codes were spat out 9600,9601 and D900. Is there a way to fix this without costing a fortune? Generally wouldn't be a problem but in less than 12 months after getting this I've had to replace the wheel bearings, cat, exhaust twice, clutch and other niggles, which is sad because the car is very comfortable and a pleasure to drive.... But still thinking I should've kept my old Fiat Brava lol, had no problems with that. Please help if anyone can?
  19. Hi all im new here but i need some help, i just fitted some new phillips headlight bulbs to a 2011 fored fiesta 1.2 all of them work barring the passengers side main beam, i tried repalcing the bulbs but it still doesnt work so i removed the whole light fixture and plugged it in to the other side and the main beam woorks. Do you think there is a problem with a fuse or the electrical connection to the lamp. If there is a electrical problem then it has to be in the car. Any advice is welcome and thanks in advance.
  20. HI guys, I know that bulbs have been discussed to death here but I am having another problem with them. My passenger Headlight (nearside) bulb has blown and I have replaced it with a standard 55w H7 which is the same as the other side (offside). I have checked my fuses and they seem to be all in tact but not sure where the headlight fuses specifically is (i have looked at position F4-5) My passenger headlight is not working with the new bulb. Any help would be appreciated regarding this.
  21. As it nears a year of owning the cmax, I am still amazed at how much I have enjoyed it compared to my BMW! I long to keep it but the headlights are driving me bonkers! I bought a set of the Philips xtreme vision but there is nothing xtreme about them! I dont have the greatest eye sight in the dark I have to admit but these are terrible! Other than hitting the illegal 100w I am struggling here and dont want to waste a fortune buying and trying bulbs out? Any ideas guys?

  23. hello all, Need to replace my left hand head lamp on a 2004 fiesta. Are the headlights from the updated model compatible, if not is it best to just get an original one or are there any good after market ones. Thank you.
