In Topic: Mk3 Keyless Entry - Frustrating ??

23 June 2013 - 12:58 PM

        My Focus is a Mk3 TiX bought new last year, and I initially had all sorts of problems with the keyless entry.  


        That is until on a visit to my dealer, it was pointed out that I shouldn't try and lock it by putting my hand round the handle and pressing the little black window, I was trying to lock and unlock it at the same time! Doh!


        The other thing I didn't realise at first is that only the door near the sensor will unlock, i.e. if I stand next to the drivers door  the passenger cannot unlock it on the other side.


         My excuse is my old age...

In Topic: Zetec S Spoiler On Titx

Looks good Foci.

My titx is built and swanning round europe at the moment, thankfully my local Ford dealer is great at keeping me informed.

I ended up with Lunar Sky ( wife didn't like Candy Red ) due to the non availability of the Ink Blue

I must admit that the spoilers on the Ecoboost in the local showroom look much better than the plain one fitted to the titx.

In Topic: Factory Fit Sunroof

You're right Tomo2001, unfortunately the glasses holder is at the front of the overhead console and would therefore presumably be the last to go. I've emailed a query to Ford and found the focus manuals online while I was looking. It doesn't show the inside of the car but the operating button is apparently between the sunvisors...

Many thanks for the replies, especially ShinyAndy.

The latest Focus pdf brochure under interior convenience features says 'Sunroof - Power tilt/slide ( not with overhead console ) - 5 door only' . I assumed that the console referred to was part of the sunroof and it wasn't till I saw a showroom focus that I realised they may have been referring to the existing one fitted in the car.

But hopefully as ShinyAndy says, at worst I will get an alternative. So I'll find out for real in 12 weeks time :)
