Smart Charge System

07 November 2012 - 02:22 PM

Hi can anybody tell me if the f-super can check the charging system in particular if the smart charge system is working my reason for asking is that my battery keeps going flat over night or if the stereo is on in the car with the ignition off for around 15 mins I would like to check this out before spending money on a new battery. I have used a meter with the engine running and I'm getting around 14.4 volts any help welcomed

Thanks in advance


White Smoke

Hi all I have a 2.0 tdci 115ps on a 54 plate drives great but every now and then after a good run when pulling up a slip road and waiting to turn it notice a small amount of white smoke/steam coming from the front of the car. Under normal round town driving I have never noticed anything.The oil level is staying normal and the radiator water level is normal. Any suggestions or any body had similar with there car.

Thanks in advance

Hi i drive a mondeo 2.0 tdci 54 plate saloon on a recent trip i went round a roundabout heading straight across. on the exit to the roundabout i felt the rear end twitch which was unusual as ive been round the same road hundereds of time with nothing happening to the car. further to this later in the same trip i went right at a larger roundabout only to have the back end come away oversteer quite badly. now considering the previous incident i was going slowly round the roundabout just incase and not feeling so confident in my car. mitigating circumstances where car low on fuel not so much weight over rear, low tyre pressure in offside rear tyre and moderate rain fall. having said that i correct the tyre pressure filled up and have been using the car recently in the dry but the back end still feels like it wants to oversteer when turning right unless i keep the speed well below normal. i would just like any suggestions as to where the problem might lie ive bounced all the corners to check the suspension but there is no signs of a shock absorber knackered as it recoils about one to one and half times then stops looking at the springs there seems to be no broken ones so im at a loss as to the cause any help or suggestions much apperciated.......
