Streetka 2004 Dashboard Lights Delay In Coming On

04 November 2014 - 09:44 PM

just recently the dash lights on my '04 streetka have started to delay in turning on.

 

i start the engine, turn the headlights on and it takes either a minute or two for he dash lights to come on. Infact it may even be when the vehicle starts to move that they come on.

 

has anyone else experienced this? or does anyone have any input or ideas?

 

thanks in advance!

Alarm/central Locking Beep, Dash Lights, Heated Seats

23 October 2014 - 08:48 AM

have recently had some misfiring problems and had a bit of learning experience replacing plugs, coil pack and leads.

 

there is still an intermittent misfire but i put this down to using after market cheaper parts rather than genuine (over priced) ford ones.

 

however, the car running fine, for now.

 

 

BUT thtere is defo some kind of little electrical gremlin goin on tho cos even tho she is runnin fine atm, the alarm beeps and indicators flash sometimes when i UNlock the central locking (never did this for the first 3 years of owning the car)
 
and also sometimes there is a delay in my dash lights coming on when i turn on my headlights.
 
PLUS my heated seats dont work but i just assumed that was a fuse?
 
i never really use the heated seats so havnt bothered to replace the fuse, but could this be causing these knock on electrical annomalies???
 
as usual any input greatly appreciated :) 

'o4 Streetka Running Rough On 98 Octane?

12 August 2014 - 12:56 PM

Have recently had coil pack, leads, plugs and battery replaced as engine management light came on and diagnostic said 'cylinder 2 misfire'
However its still running rough, esp at low revs, n im now thinkin rather than misfiring its a fuel or injector prob?
Iv always used standard 95 unleaded but recently decided to 'splash out' on a couple of tanks of 98. Could thos be the culprit???
