Help.. Fez Undriveable Thanks To Transmission Light :(

04 March 2013 - 07:03 PM

Hey guys, long time since ive been on.. mainly because my car has had zero modifications since I last posted.


From when I got the car in dec 2011 the transmission light would come on intermittently once every so often but it never caused any problems and no garage could pick up what the problem was.


Now the light comes on and when its on the car loses all power, and the accelerator goes dead to responses if its revved and the car revs itself up to about 1.5k. rpm. :(


Now the strange thing is its not showing any error codes, its been at 2 garages and a specialist diagnostic guy has been out, and the light has stayed on in the past for a few hours to two weeks.


Also, Ive had the accelerator replaced as that was the only thing the garage I took it to could think it was. 3 hours later it broke down again. Its now worked absolutely fine and as normal for a week but has came on again and again its undriveable.


Anyone any ideas why or what this is?

Any advice would be appreciated as im at my wits end trying to figure out what it is!


Ive attempted to upload 2 videos to show the noise it makes when the engine is on which seems mostly normal and then the noise that comes from the engine bay immediately after turning the engine off. :/


Apoligies for the mega long post haha! :)

Volume Controls Stopped Working :(

16 July 2012 - 12:10 PM

Alright folks,
As most of you know ive got a 09 fez and tonight the volume control stopped working on my stereo AND my steering wheel. All the other buttons worked but i wasnt able to control the volume in any way Posted Image
Was hoping i could avoid taking it to ford as theyll likely charge some crazy amount to look at it, was hoping someone on here would know what it possibly was?


Odd Squeak On Mk7

03 July 2012 - 12:19 AM

Alright folks :)

Noticed recently when im driving at low speeds and sometimes fast I can hear an intermittent squeaking sound. Its defo coming from the outside not inside and the best way to describe it i guess is almost like birds tweeting haha?

Just wondered if any1 had any idea what it could possibly be :)


Bad Brakes

10 June 2012 - 11:34 AM

Alright everyone, I know that many people have complained about the mk7's brakes not being the best but recently I think there could be something up with mine, when im braking i dont really feel them in any way until my foot has pushed the brake pedal nearly all the way to the floor, and i seem to glide to a stop more often than not.
Yous reckon its something I should get checked out or is this what every1 else feels theirs is like?

Cheers fellas!
