In Topic: Fiesta Mk6 Door Open Light Stays On..... Help......!!

01 July 2014 - 02:38 PM

Just an update.

 

I still cannot remove the door card to access the central locking unit. This is proving to be very difficult!

 

Although I cannot lock the doors using the remote control unit, thy WILL LOCK manually using the key. The good 'old fashioned' way! I have now wired into the system an immobiliser/alarm I had on the shelf in the garage, and guess what, IT WORKS!

 

So why doesn't the proper Ford remote control unit work? Have replaced battery just as a matter of course - but still no joy.

 

It obviously cannot be a problem with the O/S door locking mechanism as the other unit I have installed would also not work - would it????

 

Baffled.................................

That's what I think but, of course, this doesn't really help.

 

Even our local Ford garage uses the same details. According to their computer programme, which I also managed to take a look at today, shows the MK6 & MK6.5 from 2002 to 2008 (as I know them) - MK 5, and the latest model from 2008 onwards - MK6.

Why make things so difficult?

I know that...... I have had both. But they keep saying these are MK5. Totally different model as I recall?

Right. I cannot find your guide on converting manual to electric windows, and I am struggling to find how to PM you?? Really difficult site to negotiate. 

 

Anyway, just to update you. I have tried on three separate occasions to strip the door down - but no joy. I have worked on cars for many, many years, but this is just a nightmare. I have now given up and have to leave the vehicle unlocked.
