#508903 Should Auto-start-stop Be Affected By Interior Temperature Setting?

Posted by Stoney871 on Today, 02:15 PM

Basically ACS won't kick in unless the system is 100% sure that the car will restart every time.
Any electrical variations from optimal values will suspend it.

If it's plugging into the interior fusebox it will be mini blades.

I was wiped out by Taunton (M5) and had to stop for a coffee.
Started losing my concentration which is not good at all.
Quick 40 minute stop and I was right as rain again.

I can recommend the Travelodge at Towcester.
Handy McD's, Little Chef, Garage with M&S shop and car/jet wash.
Rooms are cracking and staff are good.
There were 9 or 10 clear parking spaces last night so I'd say a few spare rooms so if the show is at Silverstone next year it's well worth booking there and being only 3 miles up the road saves getting caught in traffic.
I left for the show at 06.45 and was parked up by 07.20.


#508303 Ford Fair Purchase

Posted by Stoney871 on 02 August 2015 - 06:23 PM

I bought a hydraulic prop kit for my car.
£50 instead of £65+ on some other stalls :D
Had to put a blindfold on going past the Mountune stall though ;)

They've become hard to get hold of.
Whichever way you cut it they are a safer option than Scotchlocks.

Gates open 0630 for club entry.
I'm only 3 miles up the road so will probably be there pretty sharpish.

They are usually red/black.
Attach the white one to any body mounted bolt/screw for earth.
When fitting the fusetap make sure you don't put the top fuse in until you have checked that you have the tap in the right way round.
Put the tap in, check that there is no power to the device then put the fuse in and it should power up.
If you get power without a fuse then turn the tap around and all will be ok.
(If it powers up without a fuse in then the fuse is being bypassed and the circuit will have no protection- risk of fire if something surges) .
