Help Required

09 October 2010 - 06:18 PM

Can anybody help?

60 plate Titanium 5 door (with new Sony Radio).

On my 2008 6.5 Fiesta I was able to programme the unlocking of the car doors to just unlock the driver's door with one push of the remote, and all of the doors with a second push of the remote, but on the new one the Handbook says I can programme the central locking to do the same as the old one.

I went through the book and it does not tell you how. I then telephoned the Dealer who said it has to be done on their Computer. I took it to the Dealership who in fact could not do it; they telephoned the Ford Technical Department who said it cannot be done on this model. Has anybody found a way round this, or can give me any advice, as I think it is a retrograde step, not to be able to just unlock one door.



birthdays,chocolate cake,ice skating ,and a trip to fords

08 January 2010 - 02:16 PM

Well it seems a long while since my last post but anyway

was my birthday yesterday (dont even ask too many)

my neighbour brought me a humungus chocolate birthday cake..........sod the diet

watch this on youtube Paignton Ice Skating for Cars ( Bolero Remix )

and went to my dealers to-day had a few minor probs fuel milage seemed to have gone haywire since the service in october,so he has downloaded some software into the computor (HAL) if you know what he was 2001 space film)
and my auto lights and wipers have had a mind of their own so he has orderd a new sensor
when dry the wipers would start, when wet, they wouldnt
lights came on when i started the car (normal as the car is kept in the garage in the dark) but when you drove into the sunshine they would stay on for 30 mins or at least 15/20 miles so i will keep you posted on both the petrol consumption and the lights/wipers...........anyway i have a date with some more chocolate cake........... :D

Extras for my Leather Interior

29 October 2009 - 01:38 PM

As you all may recall,a couple of months ago,I replaced the gear lever and handbrake gaiters with black leather ones that had red stitching,well when i changed the interior to full grey leather,the black ones seemed a little out of place.

So after seaching the net and had received a lot of promised help and phone calls that never arrived,i eventually found someone on Ebay that actually made me a pair of custom coloured gearlever/handbrake gaiters in grey leather with grey stitching to match the interior of my car,not quite an exact match......... but close enough,and he didnt charge me any extra than the normal price for making me this custom coloured set,WHAT a result..so i also purchased some grey velour fully fitted mats to go with it all.

So here are a few pics ime really pleased with the final result.

(you will notice on this handbrake gaiter ,it covers the full length of the lever not just halfway as the other one did)
