My New To Me Ford Mondeo Titanium X Sport

09 October 2014 - 07:25 PM

Evening all.

I thought is share a post on this sub forum as I have bought myself (new to me) Ford Mondeo Titanium X Sport TDCI. it's an estate as I needed more room with expanding family. my previous car ( being swapped for titx on Tuesday) was a ford focus 1.6tdci Zetec. I test drove the mondeo and I fell in love. now this is what I ended up with.

the car is in moondust silver, 2.2 tdci with 173bhp. I've been told the one I have is fairly rare as it has a sun roof. apparently when they were being made (2009 is the year of mine) it was a six month waiting time for a roof so no one bothered with it. the car also has satnav, cruise, speed limiter, voice control and loads of other gadgets and gizmos.

my favorite bit is the carbon touches throughout the car.

I picked up the car which is five years old and 33,800 on the clock for 10,000. I also managed to get three years warranty which covers just about everything along with three years roadside assistance throughout Europe.the car is mint apart from some cosmetic damage which is being fixed and all alloys being refurbished. car has been serviced five times since new roughly every 7,000 roughly and it's also being serviced as we speak.

I do have plans for the car. my focus I had a few bits done to it. intercooler induction and interior upgrades.
plans are as follows:

induction either enclosed or uncovered
egr blank. I have heard of eml come up so want to know what people have experienced.
Dpf gutted.
remap.
led interior upgrade as there are half a million lights in the car
perhaps a elmconfig to see what else is turned off? again advise would be great?!
wind deflectors
colour coding plastics
detailed including machining ect ect.
bigger intercooler
headlight bulb upgrades. not sure about drl. etis states it doesn't have it but I've noticed there isn't any side lights??
led conversion for rear tail lights
fly eye tints
debadge front grille

and of course enjoy the car.

I would like comments and any helpful advise that I should be aware of, xomman faults and anything else that could be handy to know.

pictures will be added soon when I pick the car up. but here is a pic to show her off abit. sorry it's sideways.

Many Thanks Ryan

Need Help Asap With Alarm. Alarm Will Not Activate Post Elm 327 Update

29 September 2014 - 09:32 PM

so as it's state in the title I need help ASAP. basically I have updated the car with the elm327 and activated the one touch double lock. but ever since I've done that the alarm doesn't set when the car is locked but the indicators blink when the car is unlocked. I can open the bonnet and the alarm doesn't sound. I have just literally turned the double lock off and reset the module and nothing has happened. is there away of putting the module or whatever controls it back to normal/original settings? does anyone one what is meant to be ticked in the GEM section? I really hope someone has had this problem and could help me. I need to know asap I have my alarm not working.

Sorry in adavance if this sounds abit angry but I hate things not working and not knowing why. I'm nice really honestly :)

many thanks

Air Conditioning L/p Port Location

11 August 2014 - 11:12 AM

Hello all I am after some reliable information as internet searching isn't proving very well and quite vague. Will someone be able to tell me where the low pressure refill port for the air conditioning is. I've seen pics of older Ford's with the fill port begins the forward right hand wheel arch. Will it be the same on my car being as it's 3.5 years of age?

pictures would be handy.

Many Thanks

Ryan
