In Topic: 06 Mondeo Alarm

Today, 09:08 AM

here is are two quotes from another forum.


"I was told that the Mondeo has a thing where, if you unlock it using the
key manually in the door handle you get a certain time to start the
engine, else the alarm goes off. Its designed to stop theiving chav
ripping the handle off the door and gaining entry. Hence if another door
is opened whilst you're between door lock and ignition it sets the
alarm off straight away




"Mine is a 2003 model, and if I open the door with the non-remote key it
starts bleeping then the alarm sounds. The handbook says you have to
move the key to position II but mine only stops the alarm if I start the
engine. Same applies to a friend's 2004 model.

The handbook is not very clear which model that particular instruction refers to



Have a go and see if that works.

In Topic: Hill Assist

I will say though that hill assist can be a good thing in the right place - I've driven trucks with it - but I'm not 100% convinced there's a huge need for it in a family car.

I wouldn't want them in a truck. There's such a satisfying feeling when you get the hiss from the air brakes, much better than a big bore exhaust :lol:


Also I wouldn't want to rely on it with a full load. Admittedly the trucks I drove fully loaded were only about 15 ton but it could still cause a lot of damage if a hill assist function failed and I wasn't quick enough to react :unsure:

If I recall the handbrake adjuster is above the exhaust heat shield. you have to remove that to adjust it.

If you've only just bought it, you should be taking it back to the seller as they have sold you a faulty car.
