G'day all,
Yet another newbie!! I was hoping to have a good look around for a possible answer/cure for a problem i am having with my 2001Focus estate. I have left it a bit late in the Evening, so i thought i would just put a question on first, and see if anyone has had a similar experience/problem?
I recently purchased a Focus TDDI (loving the fuel economy) and i have always opened the tailgate with the key. Now i have been using it for work for a while, i have realized how handy it would be if it would work from the key fob, or the dash button.
When i tried the key fob Today, (as well as the dash button) i listened under the dash near the throttle pedal and heard a clicking from the box "fingy" that does the central locking. When i tried to remove the connector from the "fingy" it came out in one piece still connected to the circuit board. I had a Friend from work listen at the back of the car near the lock to see if it was doing anything, make a noise or attempt to open, but no joy :-( The circuit board i had hold of was (the silver box on it) clicking. Any thoughts/ideas/help would be very much appreciated.
Thanks in anticipation.
