#527908 Wiring Heated Seats Into A Zetec

Posted by mrmetallica on 30 September 2015 - 08:30 PM

Mine had heated leathers and powerfold mirrors as options when new, as well as black masked Xenons and privacy glass...either someone had more money than sense or it was a dealers test drive car! :D

I've had to add cruise though, which should've been standard imo! Don't want an ESP button though, having an odd blank on the other side would annoy me lol.

ive got a usb socket on the other side

#527010 Passenger Speaker Not Working

Posted by mrmetallica on 27 September 2015 - 06:16 PM

You could try connecting one of the old speakers into the back of the multiplug at the head unit just to make sure it's ok. But I've never personally had 1 channel down. Unless stupid question but the fader and balance isn't set to turn that speaker off is it?

i was thinking the exact same thing with speaker to back of unit.thats how i found out it wasnt working,i did one speaker yesterday and put the stereo to front right only and then to passenger fron only to compare them but nothing on passenger side .

will try the speaker trick soon very soon .cheers for your input .

Quite possibly a broken wire in the door harness? Easiest way to check is with a multimeter check continuity from speaker connection to the stereo harness. I've not looked myself but would assume colour match on wires at both ends. If it is broken in the door harness you really need to replace that cable and not rejoin it at the door or it will probably break again

ill try that was thinking something to do with the head unit .all the other speakers work ok.

i can see another week with door cards off

#492487 Low Washer Fluid!!!

Posted by mrmetallica on 04 June 2015 - 11:18 AM


Derek when you bought your float sensor did you get a sealing washer with it?

if not after your drilled your washer bottle did you just insert the float sensor or did you use a washer to seal it against leaks?



you would need to use the sealing washer other wise would just leak

#491455 What Fits In A Focus??

Posted by mrmetallica on 31 May 2015 - 10:08 PM

Hire a van! Not expensive nowadays. I had a nearly brand new transit recently, I think it was about £50. Less stress and less trips!

Haven't tried fitting a great deal into my Focus yet so can't comment otherwise.

how long was that for ? where i am it would be that per hour

#487931 Low Washer Fluid!!!

Posted by mrmetallica on 20 May 2015 - 03:59 PM


Great advice fella.


I must get a look at mine this week to see if I have the wiring in the existing loom first then I can make a list of what materials I need from there.

try looking in the passenger foot well.behind the carpet at the connectors.you should see a black with orange strip wire ,if its one side of the plug and not the other then you know the wires not there to the wash bottle
