Hi, i'd check the boot contact switch and oil it thoroughly, they do stick.
You'll probably also find the boot light stays on, draining your battery.

Just give the whole lock internals a good spraying with WD40 and open/close it a few times to see if it frees up.

to somthing like ''Hostage Escaping'' Posted Image

Sounds like an excellent rewording!!! I would buy a focus JUST to get JohnH to change my message to that...

and "Low Washer Fluid Level" to "need 2 pee in bottle"...

and when the EML comes on, change the wording on the TC to "It's F******* again" lol

yes and when my 1.6TDCi throws up the codes: P132A, P132B
i want it to say '' Game Over You should have bought a 1.8TDCi ''

and when the DPF is kaput it should say
''2ltrs of petrol and match stick required''
