#389955 2011 Mk3 Focus: Dials On Instrument Panel Not Working.

Posted by btmaldon on 25 July 2014 - 01:51 PM

You need to check see if any of the fuses have blown.

 

Before you do this try disconnecting the battery for a while. It may reset the system.




#389776 Ford Focus: Can Mk2 Seats Fit Into A Mk3?

Posted by btmaldon on 24 July 2014 - 09:37 PM

The Mk 3 is the latest shape. Some call it a Mk 5 because instead of calling the facelift versions a Mk1.5, Mk2.5 they called these the Mk 2 and Mk4.

 

You may be able to get the front seats from a Mk2 or 2.5 into a Mk 3 but the airbag wiring is going to be different and the backseats definitely wont fit. Your better off looking for a set from a scrappy but as the car is still relatively new they may be difficult to find.




#387417 What Is This Lol

Its for attaching to the drivers floor mat to stop it sliding around. The Ford ones come with the holes in it to clip it to

They do bog down especially in this hot weather. The air intake feed from under the bonnet is very restrictive. If you buy the plastic feed from under the bonnet and behinfd the grill to the airbox for a 2.0 Auto you will see it provides a larger intake from behind the grill. That combined with a performace replacement panel filter will improve things slightly. Especially on these hot days.




#386716 Key-Fob Issues

Posted by btmaldon on 16 July 2014 - 08:12 PM

I would by the flip key and take the transponder out of the fob that is falling apart and put that one in it. Alternatively buy two and take the chip out of both your current keys. It is pretty simple. I just did my Father in Laws Seat Altea which uses a VAG key obviously but they are the same.

#383658 Pc Died, But From The Ashes Comes

Posted by btmaldon on 08 July 2014 - 05:40 PM

What a beast. I need to start thinking about building a new one. I built the current one about 4 years ago. Got all the parts from Novatech last time but will do some research on parts and specs before I go ahead.




#378444 Sd Card Problems

Posted by btmaldon on 25 June 2014 - 07:25 PM

The Mk 2.5 had both Touch screen and non Touch Screen in the last of them. The problem is the Mk 3 came out in 2011 as well. Here is a picture of my old 2011 Mk 2.5 Sport which had the non touch screen version of the Blaupunkt FX.

Just got it. One of the last Focus Sports

Did they also change the Top Mounts? They have a habit of knocking on uneven road surfaces.

Sounds like you have a miniature 1970's Police Car behind the dash. I've never heard anything like that on any car before.

Oops. Timing is everything. LOL




#368626 Two Problems That Have Occured.

Posted by btmaldon on 27 May 2014 - 08:57 PM

Firstly you may have dislodged the cables on the back of the dial when the stereo was fitted or trapped some cables. You will have to remove it to check.

 

It could be the connection under the drivers seat that is causing the airbag light to come on. If the seat is moved quite a lot it may have loosened the connection. Common problem on all makes of car.
