In Topic: Focus St Spoiler

I have fitted the st spoiler to my mk2.5 with ease following lenny guide,

Your current rear brake light will not physically fit into the st spoiler, in addition the wiring connector for both spoilerd are completely different

yeh 1.5mm is plenty, the camera wont be pulling that much current, (i presume there is a fuse protecting the radio anyway)

thanks for your replys, I guessed it had to go to the reverse switch somehow , would it be possible to route the extended purple wire to the rear of the car to the live reverse light wire where I connected the camera and connect it there ? 

 

thats where i picked up my feed from, (although im not using a sony headunit)

 

as said before get a really long wire and then tap into the loom under the car behind the bulb and test first, then you can lift the carpet in the boot and there is a rubber grommit on both sides just pick the grommit on the side your reverse bulb is and wire down to the bulb


In Topic: Is The Dashboard Figures Accurate? (Miles Left To Empty Tank)

16 October 2014 - 05:37 PM

Not overly accurate... Mine said I was only gonna get 400 miles when I filled up... 450 miles later I've still got 200 miles to go according to the range. :D

It gets more accurate towards the bottom of the gauge though, assuming you're driving fairly consistently. And it'll over-estimate as well, so tell you theres '0' miles to go when theres probably about 50! I wouldn't push it past the 0 though, did twice in my old Vectra and that was fine...but doesn't mean it'll be the same with the Focus lol.

 

id have to disagree there, i had mine drop 25miles over night

 

i parked it up with 50miles (and the light came on) i knew the petrol station was 8 miles away, next day got in to go to work and boom...25miles until empty,  :wacko: 

 

i thought never mind petrol station is only a few miles away .... i got there with 11 miles left in the tank

 

needless to say i never go below 40 now
