2000 Galaxy Electric Windows Central Locking Not Working

22 May 2013 - 05:39 PM

Hi all


i have just picked up my new (new to me) 2000 ford galaxy and my first two jobs are the front electric windows which wont go up or down on either drivers or passenger side and the central locking which also is not working, i went straight for the obvious, the fuses which were both in good condition and working as they should so am after some pointers for what my next step should be to fix these none working items. I am guessing that as neither windows work the prob is unlikely to be local to the individual motors?


thanks in advance guys :)

Stranded 2002 Tddi Please Help New Owner

08 December 2012 - 02:38 PM

Hi all

i have just bought a 2002 tddi (115bhp) mondeo it has 110,000 on the clock.

Picked it up and all was well started no problems after a battery bump all warning light went out and all was well, was driving along and the car was smooth and pulled well, then there was a blip/pause in acceleration. over the next 10 mins these pauses became worse until the car would no longer accelerate or rev and lots of blue smoke was coming out from the rear then the car stopped running and would not restart, after leaving it for around 10 mins it eventually started again but was not reving cleanily and could only get it to creep forward on idle revs before it stopped running and again would not restart. there are no warning lights on the dashboard at all.

Any help would be much appriciated as the car is stranded 40 miles from my home and i am unsure as where to start looking for the cause of the issue.

thanks in advance guys
