Ford Fusion Boot Release Problem - Please Help

28 May 2013 - 11:34 AM

Hello all,


I purchased a Ford Fusion, everything is great with the car, but the rear boot will not open without manually inserting the key.


I can't open it by pressing the button on the key fob, or the button inside the car.


Can anyone give me any suggestions why this might be? and how to fix it?


Also, if anyone could tell me where the fuse box is and the fuse number for the boot, I would greatly appreciate it.




Changing Cd Player On Ford Fiesta Mk5 - Please Help

14 January 2013 - 04:33 PM

Hello all,

I have a Fiesta MK5, with a factory fitted, CD4050 RDS EON, which basically looks like it comes in three parts, on on top of the other with a space in between.

I wanted to fit an AUX cable but apparently this CD player cannot support AUX, no adapter will work with it.

So I would like to upgrade the CD player to one that works with AUX.

I don't want to use an after market stereo, I would prefer to stick to Ford, I think it looks better when you have a standard radio.

So I am considering fitting a CD6000. However, it appears the whole panel would need to be changed, as my CD4050 as mentioned previously has groves that it fits into, and these don't seem to be able to be removed along with the radio.

A bit hard to explain, but hopefully someone understands what I mean, and can explain to me how I go about changing the CD player.

Thanks in advance.

Hello all,

My expansion tank has a crack in it and I lose coolant slowly over time, I need to change my expansion tank, can someone please explain to me how to do it?

Eg, is it simple as draining the system, and then removing the old tank, fitting the new one and filling the system again?

When re filling the system, is there anything specific to watch out for? how to I make sure theres no trapped air etc.

Thanks in advance.

Hello all,

I believe my engine is miss firing, so I assume I would need to change either the coil pack, spark plugs or leads.
