Issue With Type Pressure Monitoring System

19 July 2015 - 07:12 PM


I'm wondering if anyone can help or has had a similar situation with their car in the past. My fiesta has decided to display various different messages linked to the TPS system. Common is to get the check type pressures warning when driving a higher speeds at very random and intermittent times, however it will then just turn itself off.

Also I've had the tyre pressure sensors not found message and the flashing system failure light, however like the above issue , it has just cleared itself.

I took it in for a service last week and asked them to look at it, was told all it needed was resetting which they had done, however clearly the issue is still there and it's something else.

I will book it back in tomorrow , hover just wondering if anyone can shed any thoughts on what it could be?

Tps System Question

29 June 2015 - 08:44 AM



Over the last few days I have had the check tyre pressures warning come on, before going back off. It will then come back on again sometime a couple of mins later, before going back off.


Clearly I checked the tyre pressures at the garage and all seem to be ok, so I am a little confused. I was thinking maybe this is picking up some slow puncture? However, if this is the case is their any way of working out which tyre is causing the issue?


Maybe I am missing something really obvious here when it comes to finding out which tyre is causing the issue?

Ford Fiesta St Servicing Costs

26 June 2015 - 04:38 PM


It's that time of the year when my car is coming up to its first year service. Clearly wanting to get it done at a Ford dealer, however not sure on service costs.

Can anyone share some figures that I should be aiming for when getting quotes?

Fiesta Mk7.5 Interior Light

16 January 2015 - 07:07 PM



I noticed that the interior light is not working, clearly the bulb has gone. Will this be covered under warranty as the car is under a year old?


However, also tempted to do this myself if it is a simple task. Anyone know how I get into the bulb as cant see any clips on the diffuser / cover.

Temp Monitor Colour

03 December 2014 - 08:38 AM



Interesting one and maybe it is normal on the MK7.5, however should that snowflake on the road icon go red when the temp on he dashboard is reading 0 or a - figure? I know it used to on my previous Ford however this morning we got down to -2 in parts and still it was lit up in that amber colour, never once changed to red.


Where actually is the thermometer placed in the car that is used to take this reading?
