Hi, I'm new to this site, I've just bought a nice Streetka 03 model with 35k on it for the wife, but have a couple of minor issues.
I cleaned the engine bay today - no hose, pressure washer or steam cleaning - just a damp cloth to wipe over and a bit of degreaser, sprayed a bit of wd40 about but didn't go mad. Anyway started it up and the management light stayed on!! I've checked to see if anything has been dislodged - all looks OK and it starts and runs fine, I also disconnected the battery for about 5 mins hoping to reset the ECU but the light remains on - any Ideas?? or is it a main dealer job?
Central locking doesn't activate on the drivers door when unlocking and sometimes won't lock on the blip either although i do get a slight bleeping noise for about 10 secs after arming/disarming. Do these cars have an alarm and immobiliser?
The PAS fluid looks a bit cloudly and excess moisture appears under the cap, so I guess that needs renewing?
Apart from that the car is spot-on!!! and If it lasts as well as my 2002 198k Mondeo I'll be more than happy!
Sorry for such a long-winded first post but I'm hoping someone out there can shed some light
