In Topic: Need Help ! Alarm Question 2004/5 :)

03 April 2011 - 01:04 PM

Hi there everyone,

I'm sure this will sound stupid :unsure:

i was thinking of buying my mums friends ford focus ghia it's either 2004/05 (but i'm pretty sure 05) 1.8 engine size and its petrol not diesel.

He said it has an alarm and immobiliser fitted AS STANDARD and showed me the key which looks exactly like this http://www.pots-of-g...ord3bnblade.jpg and the side lights flash when you lock the car with the key... but my mum said most of the time he doesn't know what he's talking about! so my question is (from someone who also doesn't know what she's talking about) do the ghia's 2004/05 come with standard fitted alarms and if so how come that key only has lock/unlock buttons on?
He said he didn't want to set alarm off then (it was after 9pm..) .But i do love the car and would probably get alarm fitted anyhow :blink:

thanks guys,

Hi, - have the a 2002 focus and the key is the same. The owners manual says the alarm only sounds when the glass is broken or a door is forced open. Don't know if that is a general description or if it applies to some models.

I will definitely go back with the car. I was gonna ask a friend to do it for me but don't think I could put him through it. Plus the fact that he's over 6ft won't help. Thanks

The mechanic checked the clutch he said it was ok. Will have to take the car back for another check. Thanks

hi ,
I'm here again with the same problem oil loss, It isnt very noticeable that there is a loss. but I also noticed recently that there is some fluid under the pedals. First i thought it was water. But it dropped on my shoe today and as i wiped it off with my fingers it felt oily. so any ideas folks on this new development.

Yeah A friend suggested condensation for the fluid loss. Come to think of it I had new pads last year I was told they were quite bad. perhaps the mechanic didn't top the fluid back up.
