Heated Windscreen Partially Working
Posted 06 November 2011 - 09:15 AM
I bought a 56 plate 2.5T S-Max Titanium last week, so am new to it but have had a focus for a few years, so first thing is to say hello.
It's nice and frosty today, so tested the heated screen (unfortunately I was not able to test this at the time and it was a private sale, so it's my problem now) and found that only about 20% of it seems to be working. The focus has the odd missing line which I put down to failure within the screen but to lose big chunks of it on the S-Max implies to me that it's a wiring connection type issue as there does not seem to be any obvious physical damage to teh screen.
Does anyone know how the power supply to the screen is wired up and can be tested?
On a side point, are there any workshop manuals available for the S-Max as the usual supect (Haynes) does not list one. I've seen some one on ebay with the TIS on CD but I bought one of these a few years ago for the focus (probably from another seller) and ended up with a disk that did not work. I got a refund at the time but no data, so not much help.

OK other than replacing the screen (I'm guessing we're talking £500+, so it can stay not working on that basis) are there any other thing to look at that may be the issue e.g. wiring connections, fuses, earthing, etc?
