Thanks again for that suggestion. I thought these things would cost a fortune, but I just looked on Amazon and you can get one for 17.99. Might be a bit of a toy for that price I suppose, but if it reads codes and turns off the light, then that's probably all I need. I think I'll give it a punt.

Cheers,
Mike.

Thanks Mate.

I think I will try to find someone with a code reader as you suggest. Ford charge £85 for this, so I think I need to find someone who will do it for a beer. :)

The other cables in the connector in my pic are the 12V power outlet feed. The one I shorted doesn't actually go anywhere, but is obviously "live". I guess it feeds some option that I don't have.

Thanks again.
Mike.

Hi Everyone,

Update on this problem in case it helps anyone else.

After re-checking all the fuses, I found that the one right at the back was blown. This is F100. Replacing that fixed all the odd electrical behaviour, but left on the engine warning light. That fixed itself after about 10 engine restarts.

The only thing left now is that when I put the instrument cluster in test mode, I see "NVM EEPROM lvl 0001 FAIL". Everything else looks OK and there are no DTC codes showing.

Anyone know what this error (if it is an error) means, and whether it is worth fixing.

Thanks.
Mike.
