Crankshaft Sensor Replacement..hows It Done ?

27 December 2012 - 04:45 PM

Has anyone replaced the crankshaft sensor in frord ka 1.3 53 reg (newer Duratec engine) ?
If so what is easiest way to do it ? Ive shone my torch at it from every direction trying to work out how to get at it. I believe its sitting just above the starter motor on front of engine. Do I need to remove starter motor or remove bumper ? :wub:

Battery Light / Voltage Readings

17 December 2012 - 09:46 PM

Hi all. I have just bought a 53 plate ford Ka 1.3 today. The only fault I can find is that the battery warning light is constantly illuminated. I checked the battery voltage and it was 12.7 with ingition off. Once running it goes up to exactly 14 volts and stays there. Do these readings fall into the expected bracket for healthy circuit ?
What voltage would it normally dip to when engine is turning over ?
Are there any other checks I should be making to identify the problem ?
The car was sold as seen so Ive no issue whatsoever with this I just want to rectify the fault.
Any help and advice would be very welcome
