Posted by jeebowhite on Yesterday, 10:21 AM

its quite possible, if you have to put it in neutral and back into gear it could well be that its not getting into gear. I would suggest you start by getting the codes read. Have you at any point had a transmission error appear on screen?

#458199 Ideas For Mondeo Door Speakers Please.!

Posted by jeebowhite on 24 February 2015 - 05:12 PM

25 days, clearly my over summarisation. I thought it was the 31st for your original post and the second for your first sarcastic response...

However your attitude is what you exterted and I don't see the point in how any of your sarcasm or ignorance in attitude has made any difference and just in fact, puts people off wanting to help.

If you want responses to questions your better off asking 'have you guys had any thoughts' or something of that nature.

I apologise if my tone seems harsh but I do get frustrated by these sorts of threads when it really doesn't take much at all to be more appropriate and forthcoming to those your looking to help you, rather than to offer sarcasm and unnecessary comments to try and provoke a response...

A change in attitude will see you better supported. Ever thought that we don't all necessarily live here or even then people don't know?

We don't all have resource to jump on your question and satisfy your ignorant sarcasm when you don't have thousands of replies within 3 days.

Please respect the community and appreciate our existence does include lives outside of the forum. If someone can help they will, but not everyone logged on at any moment in time has knowledge of everything.

#458167 Instrument Cluster Clocks

Posted by jeebowhite on 24 February 2015 - 03:59 PM

Indeed it is possible, just get the extra stalk replace and connect and you should have most the basics, granted low washer etc won't likely work as it will miss the sensor, but it should help you.

#458097 Instrument Cluster Clocks

Posted by jeebowhite on 24 February 2015 - 11:20 AM

that should be fine, as long as its not from an auto / manual when your cars the other. And same for petrol or diesel, you need to buy the right one not the other!


Otherwise it should work, but you will of course need to make sure you update it as necessary. And you will also need to get IDS or an auto locksmith to come out and pair the key to the new cluster...

#457854 Focus Mpg

Basically the cats ecu is adjusted to the previous driver. The car works on 3 parameters to determine fuel consumption. 1) driver input - how hard you kick the gas
2) operating conditions - from fuel, to temperature to tyre inflation and
3) long term average and driveability.

Basically the latter is how your car has learned how the owner likes to handle it, for example if they have driven it like a boy racer then you come along with grandads foot then it has to adjust and vice versa.

Disconnect the battery for half an hour. Reconnect, fill up and drive it as you plan to do so. If you drive it economically the car will adjust and you will get more miles per tank. Drive it like a closed circuit and your mpg and range will go down as far as your foot in the carpet.
