  1. Newbie From Dorset !!

    Hi All New member, Just purchased Mondeo 2012 ZBE
  2. Morning All, I have a Ford Focus 1.6TDCI 2012, bought April 2015 54k miles on the clock, 66k miles now. Yesterday i had a notification come up on my car which said "Engine Malfunction Service Now" (at this point the engine is vibrating a lot) i press OK and it then tells me "Hill Assist Not Available", what does this mean? i'm guessing the Hill Assist has nothing to do with the Engine Malfunction? Annoyingly my car is due for its Service and MOT with Ford on Friday. Let me know your thoughts? or if you've had this problem before?   Thanks
  3. Alright guys and girls, I'm really interested in having my rear windows tinted, I'd have the front two done... But as we all know, they are illegal, so, I'm looking to install wind deflectors - to look the part and help blend the light to dark tint... Aswell as the initial purpose of reducing the wind noise... Anybody got any to recommend? I've got a 5 door fiesta zetec, looking to get the deflectors for both front and rear windows. Thanks in advance. Cookey.
  4. Warning Light

    Hi, my s max when locked the hand brake warning light stays on and a red flashing light has appeared in the center of the top row of warning lights. the hand book doesn't show this warning light. also I now have a 'Low battery' warning when turning vehicle on. Has anyone any ideas?
  5. Hi There I recently purchased a Sony DAB unit on eBay with the intention of upgrading my existing standard stereo. The Sony came off a 2012 fiesta as well so I figured it would be a straight swap (excluding the DAB aerial of course), oh how wrong was I! turns out the Sony unit has an extra 26 pin connector at the back as well as the additional aerial connector (see pic). It also doesn't have the usb plug the standard stereo has (though I'm not really fussed about that as I'm not gong to be using it). So what I want to know is, what is this extra 26pin socket for? can I still use the newer stereo without it? is there some kind of funky franken-connector I need to make in order to get it to work? Or should I sack it off, sell the unit on eBay and find another solution? Some help on this would be greatly appreciated. I've seen similar threads on this before but the other stereo involved was different from my standard one and so the solution doesn't seem to be the same
  6. Hi there my Wiper Blades are smearing the rain and making it difficult to see my Ford is still under warranty does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks
  7. Hi, I have a Ford Focus 2012 Zetec TDCI and was looking to upgrade the existing radio with a Sat Nav (built -In). I can't find anything out there that suggests Ford offer this. Any help or advice would be very much appreciated. Thanks, Steve
  8. After this (successful!) upgrade yesterday I thought I'd share some helpful photos if anyone wanted to attempted the same :) Here's what you'll need: Step 1: underneath the stereo in the center is a small plastic piece of trim, you need to remove this to expose the screws underneath: Step 2: remove the 2 screws: Step 3: Pull the whole unit towards you taking care then all clips are released. Try to pull out vertically as not to bend or snap anything. You'll need to unplug a cable that goes in the back of the controls so don't pull it out too far. Step 4: The screen is held in by the 4 screws highlighted in green, the stereo by the 2 in yellow. Remove these and pull outwards: Step 5: Remove the plugs from the screen and CD player, then refit in reverse!: Here's the screen in: And the finished article, before and after: Also here's a comparison of the old (blue) and new (colour) screen side-by-side: I notice the colour screen has an extra input (top middle) - not certain but assuming this might be for reversing camera?
  9. Does anybody have any infomaiton on this problem, bought a used car yesterday with full service history, it was an ex-fleet car so all service history seems to check out etc. This morning however on the motorway when i was in 6th gear the accelerator became unresponsive and the car started to slow down. The rev counter also just froze so i pulled in and turned off the ignition. when i turned it on again and started to drive it happened again. I pulled in a third time and restarted the problem seemed to go away. Does anybody have an idea of what it might be.Probably have to bring the car back but it might be the case that it only happens occaisionally and might be hard to replicate.
  10. Lw Focus Audio Wiring

The rear of the FCDIM display screen above unit is 4.2" and has 4 connectors look lie antennae the beige one is not used and the blue is GPS, do not know what others are for? There is also a 12 pin plug with ten wires in. Please see attached photos Any and all help will be greatly appreciated, as I would like to finish this project before coming back to visit UK next Wednesday. Have a great week
  11. Hi, Went to Ford dealership for some mud flaps for my Sport and what they sold me don't fit also been told can't get ones for rear because of rear skirt, anybody got ideas........ Thanks Peter
  12. Hello all I very recently emptied the piggy bank and bought my first Ford. A September 2012 Focus Zetec-S 2.0 Diesel. It's good. Apart from the awkward glove box design!... And... Now the colder weather has set in I've had the heater on and noticed that whilst the vents located on the centre console work extremely well, there seems to be nothing coming out of the vents on the right of the steering wheel and the left of the glove box. Whilst the vents on the centre console are opened and closed with the control next to each of them, the side vents don't seem to have any individual controls for them. Is that right? I've tried each of the settings on the control which switches between blowing on the screen/feet & screen/feet only/feet and face/face only. Selecting any of these doesn't make a difference. Am I missing something? My right hand is getting cold during the morning commute! Thanks in anticipation

  15. Hi I cannot believe that Ford would not have this facility available to install on their Satnav when you consider that it has been available on all the major Satnav manufacturers devices for years. Can anyone advise if I have been advised correctly and if so if anyone out there has managed to overcome this oversight by Ford? Regards Bob

  21. Hello to everybody here! I have just joined the Ford Owners Club, as I'm the proud owner of a new 2012 Fiesta Titanium (1.6 petrol, manual, 5-door, color: Dark Micastone). This is my first Ford in a long time...I owned a Ford Capri V-6 back in 1973. In the US, where I was living at the time, the Capri was marketed and sold via Lincoln-Mercury dealerships rather than as a Ford. I was delighted to find, from my car's VIN, that my "Lola" was also made in Germany. I had a great experience with my old Capri and have owned three terrific Audis in a row before switching back to Ford. I'm sure I'll be asking a few questions from time to time, and I'll post some photos of my Fiesta when I get the chance! Janet
