Rear Wiper Issue

31 December 2012 - 08:25 PM

Hi All,

I have an issue with the rear wiper on my focus. Some time ago, the wiper started to play up on a particular setting. If I select the option for the wiper to automatically do 2-3 strokes and then stop, it only moves a small amount of the way across the rear window and then stops, in the wrong place. If I select the same option again, it will continue its stroke to the end of one side of the window and then return a small amount and then stop again. If I select the option where it will run continuously then there is no problem and it appears to function as normal.

I have already replaced the relay, thinking that this may be the cause, but this has not resolved the issue. However I did purchase the relay second hand from ebay so there may be every chance that this was sold to me already faulty.

I am guessing it could be the motor, but would this not also affect the wiper movement if the continuous option was selected.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Central Locking Issue On Focus 2001

20 November 2012 - 10:32 PM

Hi All, I am hoping for some help, so if anyone can give me some advice on the following I would be very grateful.

Just recently my Y Reg focus has experienced a fault with the central locking. The passenger door no longer locks / unlocks via the central locking from either the remote fob or the drivers door.

I will explain the scenarios i have witnessed.

1. When using either the remote fob, or the key in the drivers lock, or the switch on the inside of the drivers door, the drivers door and the rear doors all lock, but then immediately unlock again. The passenger door does not even attempt to lock and i imagine this is the reason that the other locks unlock again immediately.

2. If sat inside the car, pressing the switch on the inside of the passenger door does lock / unlock the passenger door, and all of the other doors via the central locking system.

3. If I lock the passenger door from inside the car using the switch and then get out of the drivers door and close the doors up, all of the other doors will lock using either the remote fob or the key, and they stay locked as I had already previously locked the passenger door from inside. Then when I unlock the doors either by the remote fob or the key, all doors except the passenger door will unlock as they are supposed to, but the passenger door stays locked.

So, from the above, to me, the locking mechanism and motor of the passenger door appears to work fine, but not when given a signal from either the drivers door or remote fob via the central locking system.

Could this be something as simple as a broken / damaged wire leading from the central locking unit to the passenger door motor, or is there something else in line that could cause this problem?

If it is likely to be a broken wire, can anyone suggest where this break may be? maybe it is a common issue and there is a snag point which often causes a wire break?

Anyway this is driving me crazy having to ensure i lock / unlock the passenger door from inside before being able to lock / unlock the rest of the car so if anyone can offer me some advice I would be very grateful.

Thank you in advance, Marc
