Thanks so much for replying.

I was gonna buy that thing in eBay. But when I put my car details in, it comes up saying it will not fit my car?

The seller has only shown the 1.4 engined versions of the Fiesta as being compatible. The question is whether that housing fits the 1.25 engined versions as well. I cannot think of any reason why they would differ unless anyone knows different?

Yes, me too. My last car was a Honda Civic with the i-shi*t gearbox and I think that was where I got into the habit as I think the brake had to be pressed on that to start it.

I had two buckled Ford alloys repaired a couple of years ago by http://www.wellspek.co.uk for a total cost of £90. They did a good job as one was badly buckled and required spraying as well. Bit of a distance down the A1 for you though!

Sorry to resurrect a year old post but I wondered if you found the problem on yours. My cruise control has a similar intermittent fault - it either works or it doesn't, and I think it is down to a loose or bad connection somewhere.

Sounds like the dealers broke it, I'd take it back to them and say it stopped working after you got it back from them.


I don't think it'll be a matter of something being loose, someone correct me if I'm wrong but aren't these cars drive-by-wire so the cruise control and the throttle are controlled electronically? So unless the buttons on the steering wheel are broken, then it's a glitch in the software, or maybe a fuse?

Yes, I was going to take it back to the dealers but now it is working again I could be wasting my time! It failed to operate for a full 4 days apart from once, just for a few seconds, then started working normally again yesterday. It doesn't appear to have its own fuse so I am thinking either a bad connection or dirt in the switches. I read somewhere about a CC fault being cured by replacing the steering wheel clockspring but I don't fancy attempting that!
