Black Box's Under Seats???

25 October 2010 - 09:42 PM

Hi all, ive just noticed on my 2006 1.8tdci focus titanium that there is a fairly large black box under each front seat.

The black box's are marked ford mo co (ford motor company im guessing) the box connects to a large flexi pipe containing many cables which goes to a small black plastic square on the front underside of the seat with "tyco" written on it, this "tyco" box has black plastic pipes going to it which come from the inside of the seat.

never noticed these before but then again ive never looked under my seats before haha :P

anybody have any idea what these box's under the seats do?

maybe they have something to do with the pressure sensors in the seat that set the chime off if you dont have your seatbelt on? just a guess though?

Thanks for any replys :)

Help Needed!!!

Hi everyone, i need your help.

ive noticed that when driving my 2006 1.8 focus tdci with 33,000 miles

when in high revs (3000 plus) blackish grey smoke comes out of the exhaust practially every time, this only seems to happen when at or above 3000 revs. why would this be?

if you drive it around town as you never hit 3000 revs you see no smoke at all.

maybe this is normal for a turbo diesel?? I dunno as ive never had one before. theres no loss of power it pulls very very strongly and I can definetly feel the turbo working.

if you rev it above 3000 when its in neutral theres no smoke.

thanks for any replys in advance :)

1.8 Tdci Question

for all of you with a diesel, esp the 1.8 :P

when driving normally about what revs do you change up? im new to a diesel and not sure how high I should be revving to change gear without putting unnessesary strain on the engine :D
