Hi, Fellows!

Does anybody know it the seat belt reminder/ alarms can be turned off for ever? Previously I have been drivind an Avensis, it also had the annoying alarm, but i managed to de-activate it. Is there a procedure that can pe done on the New Mondeo (2008).

Cheers!
All the best,
Eddiee

I have a new Ford Mondeo 57 plate.

On some occasions when I take my foot off the accelerator in 4th gear and in 3rd gear to slow down, the car will slow down to about 30 mph and remain at that speed even though my foot is off the accelerator. It will continue at that speed until I change down again. If I brake to slow the car down to say 27 28 mph the engine fights against the braking. When I release the foot brake the car will accelerate back up to about 30 mph.

This was reported to the dealer about 5 months ago but they said they could find no fault when they connected the car to the diagnoctic machine. They tell me that they have checked and no other New Mondeo does this. The Master Technition has been in the car with me when this has occured when he has been driving. I wrote to Ford but they refered me back to the dealer explaining that they could not commennt as they had not seen the vehicle. I have now involved Trading Standards.

The dealers Regional Manager became involved and promised that he would get a Field Enginer to look at it. That Manager has recently told me that he has spoken to the Field Enginer who said that this is a Design Build Feture of this car and it is meant to do this, although the dealers say no other car in Europe does this. In view of this the Field Enginers visit has been canceled. I asked the Manager if he would confirm this in writing but he refused to do so stating that it was not his comment. I then asked if he would confirm in writing the Field Enginers comments. Again he refused to do so.

On the advise of Trading Standars I am now holding the dealers in Breach of Contract.

Asd a point of interest, that last time this problem occured I was on an open road clear of traffic so I let the car run on it's own. It continued at about 30 mph for about a 1/3rd of a mile without my foot on the accelerator.

Has any other New Ford Mondeo owner experienced this problem. If you have, please let me know

Thanks Geo
