Air Bag Warnig Light

31 October 2013 - 08:36 PM

Hi, following on from previous posts, yet another fault developed today, driving to work this morning the air bag warning lamps lit up, I pulled over to the side of the road expecting the bag to go off, nothing happened so restarted and the light went out, but came on again after a few miles, Parked up in work, 8 hours later started car and light went out, but again came on after a few miles, not sure what will happen tomorrow, any ideas, so many faults in such a short time, the car has only done 51000 miles and is regulary serviced and driven with care, are the Gods of the second hand car salesman ganging up on me.



Mk6 Auto Lights

31 October 2013 - 08:25 PM

Following from my previous post (suspension noise) another fault my car has just developed is the Auto light function, if I turn the light switch to auto, instead of the lights only coming when light fading they now stay on permanently until switched off. The dash displays message  fault with auto lamps and wiper delay, and yes the wiper delay now only works on one speed, are these faults related and why and how do I sort them.




Another fault to follow.........................

Mk6 Suspension Noises

31 October 2013 - 08:13 PM

My 2008 1.4 tdci has developed a knocking noise from the suspension, the n/s/f lower ball joint was an advisory in the last MOT so I had both changed at the same time. The noise is still there, when driving I think the noise is from the front, but passengers think it is from the rear, it's a getting to be really loud now especially when driving over those raised painted warning lines on the roads. I have jacked up all four corners expecting to find something hanging off, but nothing, no excessive play to be found anywhere, nothing loose or broken, getting desperate now any thoughts.

I also have other faults that have developed all of sudden, please see other posts, everything seams to be going Pete Tong for my little Fiesta.
