probably down to wiring/connections then

happens far more than people realise...thats why i test everything to destruction before condemning the actual sensors, result being i do more wiring repairs than changing sensors

Nicely timed then Rebecca, but that is an odd one!

 

It could just be that the wiring needed reseating?

Rebecca ...... Yours is a wiring fault ...had same problems you are describing ...auto electrician first before you spend money changing sensors that are ok....wiring harness and a fault on dash caused my problems ...paid out a fortune before found out...car been fine since I had repairs on these items done...getting my belief back in car ...slowly but surely! Get auto spark to look at it first ...good luck ...Paul

Dont suppose you have any error codes Paul?

 

It could be a bad sensor, or something as simple as the Fuel Filter.

 

I can understand why you guys wouldnt have another Ford, like my last one you both seem to have the runt of the litters!

jeebo cmon,theyre heaps o s**te. the tddi was better though. had a guy here yesterday with a focus in limp mode,EML on,AND........no fault code!!!.unbelievable! Ford upto now are the only make of car,that goes into limp & has any OBD code showing. They have to be the MOST frustrating car to work on,due to the whole fuelling/emission system being as one(sort of).

The only other cars I can think of that are as bad,are vauxhall.(but for other reasons).

Mate if you want my advice,set fire to it(quietly of course)lol, then run in the opposite direction & never look back!

Some of the cars can be the runts, I am not overly pleased about there inability to put a CVT gearbox in my car that can handle the torque! but as much as that has irritated me, I wouldnt slag off all of Ford/

 

Even with their fluffing up, I cant see me leaving them for a while!

Not got a reader and car is now throwing up this limp mode every time I get in it now !!!! Looks like the AA are going to get another callout. Just parted with £294 and still the same as before ...feel I've been royally shafted so I'm in no hurry to be done again by some shark garage! What I can't fathom is this seems a massive fault on these cars yet no one can point at one thing and say ITS THAT !!! Why not ! Modern cars are that full of sensors it makes impossible to pinpoint a fault with any accuracy and fix it ....why are sensors so damned expensive? And why are cars full of them. Rant over,,,, Fords are crap will never purchase one again!

any part is dear when u buy it new from a garage,source a 2nd hand one.always cheap
