Unfortunately some Ford dealers have poor staff you cant blame Ford for everything. Most dealerships are franchised and so its the people in them that count. I'm a senior tech for a Ford dealership and we would certainly endeavor to correctly diagnose the problem before any bills went out. But I think you will probably find that there would have been no such bill as I suspect the horn sounder for the alarm was changed under warranty. It is annoying for the customer to have to return with a problem they presumed had been fixed but I can tell you as a technician I'd be highly embarrassed if I job I had done came back. The issue on water ingress is in fact correct water ingress is only covered for the first year I think. Do they know where the water has come in from as it could be the result of previous work carried out and then the repairer may be liable for the cost of the remedial work? Any way hope this helps and if I can be of any help pls contact me. It feels good to help others.

a lot of the 16v models have rev counter but the wiring is different on your model if it is the 1.3 endura engine. Its a lot of hassle for not a lot of gain tbh.

In Topic: Ford Fiesta Titanium 1.4 Tdci - "miles To Empty"

Ok lets try and give a little clarity on this. The miles to empty guage works but calculating values such as litres of fuel left and average mpg achieved. However this cannot be used as gospel as it can all change when other influences such as driving style, air temp. and terrain all make a difference in what you will actually see the only guage you can rely on as long as its not defective is the actual fuel guage on the dash. With the figures your stating you are getting aroung 50mpg on average which is not bad tbh. Hope this helps and maybe I have helped answer your question in some way.
