Mondeo Resetting The Heating System Buttons - Procedure Needed

15 June 2013 - 10:42 PM

I disconnected the car`s batter on my 56-plate mk3 tdci 130 and on reconnecting it, all 3 blower direction control buttons in a row now come on and stay on and also my A/C won`t come on. Someone said there`s a reset procedure by pressing the buttons in a certain way. Can anyone supply me with this procedure?


Big thanks!



Re-Connect Battery & Problem With Dash Lights

14 June 2013 - 06:01 PM

Hi Folks,


I disconnected the battery on my Mondeo 130, hdi, 56-plate and when re-connectied, the 3 indicator lights for my heating choices all come on at the same time and cannot be pressed off - the one for blowing air to your feet, the screen etc and they`re just above the cd player.


I`ve disconnected the battery before and bnever had this problem and know how to re-set the windows up-down buttons, but need help with solving this problem.


I also deliberately disconnected the battery again and left it for an hour before re-connecting, but same problem.


Any advice would be much appreciated.






Can`t Change Gears Unless Engine Swithched Off ???

10 December 2012 - 08:58 PM

Hi All,

Very unusual problem just occured today after having a new alternator belt (auxuliary belt) fitted to my 2ltr, 130, tdci, 56-plate Mondeo.

The mechanic at the garage was doing my job as the first one he`d done on this car. He jacked up the engine to do it and removed the engine mounting driver`s side...he jacked up the engine quite a bit on the driver`s side.

Eventually got the belt on and everything re-fitted.

Drove home the 8 miles with no gearchanging problems and stoped in at shopes 500yds from my house. As I was pulling in at kerbside at shops and trying to change gears, it was sticky and i had to be a bit forceful.

By the time I came out of shops and tried to drive away, the problem was getting really bad and it was getting very hard to select a gear.

Pulled in at my gate and couldn`t change gears unless i`d switched off engine, then absolutely no problem with clutch pedel down,..let pedal up and car took off in first as normal, but could change out of this gear.

Turned engine off again and down with cluth pedal and any gear was available.

Started up in first gear, but now the car was beginning to creep forward even with the clutch pedal fully down and clutch supposedly disengaged .

Any ideas as to the problem???

Could a fluid line have been snapped or partly broken with what he did in jacking the engine as the problem came on gradualy??

Need my car for work so any help GREATLY appreciated.
