Don't know what code he found but it was "ash accumulation in DPF".. cleared fault car now runs again.

 

I guess that's just a logical follow-on from the earlier DPF issue we had and nothing to do with the D900.

Yeah the problem is that it just takes one odd reading (not enough to generate an error code) but enough to generate a D900. I dont tend to worry, unless I see it with a warning light I tend to just ignore it lol, Clear the code and leave it be. I am part tempted to remove that error code from the ECU's brain lol then it might actually have to think what the error is and tell me something useful to diagnose it!

Still not fixed...auto electrician having a look behind dash at connections so hopefully might find problem. Taking it back regardless tomorrow and will stick it on eBay for parts if not fixed ...decided not throwing good money at this vehicle anymore...in very good condition so hopefully I can generate a grand to buy an old Bangor that will get me to work. It won't be a ford that's for sure ! Will again keep all updated if a cure miraculously appears ! What I have learnt and will pass on ...don't just replace the sensors when a code is thrown up if limp mode and dash keeps going crazy it's most likely an electrics issue or wiring ...have that checked out before you spend your hard earned cash replacing something that's not broke...

Latest news...back on road... It was wire harness behind dash which caused fault on instrument panel...the fault was throwing up this sensor fault and that...obviously you change them ...so I've spent £770.94p on repairs...2sensors that didn't need changing and repair on wiring harness and instrument panel ...thanks Ford for making such a great vehicle....3days so far!! Will let all know if I survive the week trouble free. Anyone suffering the same faults take it auto electrician first and ask them to check harness and instrument panel ...before you waste money changing sensors that are ok.. Good luck all!!

I took my car for a service last week (it was roughly due anyway) and explains the issues I've been having, so the mechanic has had a look for something which could be causing these issues but didn't see anything - and the car didn't show the flashing red light / engine system fault message while he was working on it, testing driving it or dropping it back (nor on my drive to town to pick up the cash to pay him). 

 

A few hours late I get in the car again... and the error message is back! I feel like the car tricked me and the mechanic!

 

It does seem to get a bit better after a couple of miles of running, but it still doesn't feel right - particularly at lower gears.

Hi Paul,

 

Glad you got it sorted (hopefully long term!) dont suppose you have any pictures of the damaged article do you?

 

Becca, did you take your car back to the dealer after the error came back? You should insist that the issue has occurred again and get them to look at it.

Hi - Do you mean the Ford dealer (who I haven't dealt with yet) or the garage I took it to for the service?

Whoever it was who you drove the car away from after they had a look for it and claimed no problem?

 

As for Paul, I keep fingers crossed that the recovery of the trust comes quickly!

Rebecca

something i just noticed that got lost in the thread due to 2 or 3 others with similar issues....yours is a diesel which opens up a whole lot of different possibilties

 

you've just had it serviced/checked over...do you have a record or can find out exactly what was changed/checked

Something weird happened with my car... the garage noted the codes, cleared them, drove it and one came back... cleared that one, drove it and it came back... Seemed it needed a new air filter metre at about £140+vat (potentially cheaper from elsewhere)

 

However - another Focus came in and, before getting me to pay out that money for the part, he took the working part from the other car and tried it out... it seemed to solve the issue, so he switched the parts back around... and my car still seemed to be ok! No new parts or even anything done... but car fixed!!

 

Car now sold also, but not because of this issue - I had been looking to get a new car just before all this and this just delayed things by a few weeks.
