Hi everyone. New member here requiring some advice if anyone can help me.

 

I have a brand new C max literally 6 months old now, noticed a message a couple of days ago straight after starting the engine up....

 

ENGINE START PENDING

 

Can anyone tell me if this is something or nothing to worry about as it comes up after starting the engine and not before (weird I know)

 

Regards

 

Andy

Sounds odd, it sounds like something hasnt clicked in.

 

Is this the latest shape CMAX or is it the MK1.5 (facelift?)

Is that Keyless or Standard keyed setup? also is it push button start, or again, traditional barrel and key?

sounds like its probably a software update needed. given the age of the car, take it back to the dealer and get them to sort it for you!

Definitely up to the Dealers to resolve this on what's basically a brand new car.

Do let us know how it goes and what the fix is! I would be surprised if it isnt just a PCM update though.

Just been searching google about this and found your topic.

I have a 9 month old Ford Focus 1.6 TDCi. It's the new shape.

I have this aswell. Only seems when it's cold but once I start the engine it flashes up.

Will have to book it into ford to see what's the fault.

Strange.

Hi guys. Well got the car back from the dealer regarding the fault. They carried out a PCM check and no fault codes showed up,so have not fixed anything. They told me to monitor the problem and if it still persists to re book it in again for another check.

 

This seems ridiculous why not do everything you can on the first appointment!!! GRRRRRRR!!!!!

 

Just thought I would let you know as some of you were asking.

 

Regards

 

Andy

Hi Andy,

 

It peeves me when dealers say this! they should be more proactive, especially at the fee that you pay them for the diagnostic.

 

Definately keep a diary of it, just jot down everything, time, temperature, exact replication steps (key in, turned to 2 and error or whatever it may be)

 

If you need to take it back to them, insist its the same fault as before and refuse to pay a diagnostics fee if you already have as its the same problem and you are not willing to pay twice!

Yeah got all the info I need already. Even showed them a picture of the wording displayed on the screen. Seems to still come up first thing when engine is cold so it will be going back at some point but not got any time off to take it for a while now. It doesn't stop me driving it but I still want answers as there is clearly an issue. Keep you guys posted.
