In Topic: Focus 1.8 Tdci Cutting Out After Fitting A Tuning Box

Yesterday, 10:17 AM

could you provide a link to this tuning box? they shouldnt do anything apart from overridng the fuel rail, pushing more fuel into the system to provide a hacked way of more power. 


they should be writing anything to the ECU unless it was a proper remap


make sure you fit a GENUINE FORD fuel filter, ive tried two aftermarket ones before and they both gave me issues. you will need to go to a ford dealer to get one, or order from www.fordpartsuk.com

Chances are it has. Codes could still be stored in the PCM if there has been any. youll probably need to use a ELM327 cable and an app like ForScan to read the codes of all the modules, or find a garage that has the ability to read more than the standard OBDII codes.


was the fuel filter also changed? if so, was it a genuine ford fuel filter? ive had issues myself with aftermarket filters, even top quality ones like Bosch, MANN

if by your first question you mean that the ciggarette socket still has power when the car is off, then that is normal for the focus.


Theres been a few threads before about the cars setting fire due to the glow plug wiring overheating. this may have been an early signal. id get the wiring to the glow plugs checked ASAP before putting a new fuse in


also did you remove the fuse and nuts where its burned or was it already like that?

they are plastic pipes that come off each injector and all join into one rail, which go back towards the fuel pump to be sent back through the system. they can become brittle and crack causing leaks
