Alarm / Security System?

03 July 2013 - 12:01 PM

Hi I have a 2011 Zetec - S and am concerned as to whether I have an alarm / immobiliser fitted...
After reading different posts on here I'm still none the wiser. I've contacted ford who've told me that it should be fitted with a perimeter system and also a group 12 security (whatever that means). Reading people say that these should set off the alarm if a door / bonnet is opened once the doors are locked doesn't seem true.
I've locked the car with the window undone, opened the door if not on deadlock, have even popped the bonnet and still no siren.
Any idea if mine sounds faulty or do I just simply not have any alarm?! Which is find incredible for a 2011 vehicle!
Hearing how easily theives are getting into the new fiesta is a worry and I need to know what I have before investing in a TOAD cat 1 system.

Thanks in advance

Last couple of times I've switched the engine off I've notice the fan going for a few mins, what does this mean?

Ecu Re-Map?

30 January 2013 - 12:25 PM

Been reading about an ECU remap for my 2011 Fiesta ZS TDCi...just wondering...

Has anyone had it done? Is it worth it?
I'd like it for slightly more power/torque but mainly to improve my MPG.

Have come across a mobile company that seem pretty professional - can anyone recommend a good company around South Wales area?

Also wondering if I was to have it done how this would affect my manufacturers warranty & my insurance premium?


Weird Sound Once Engine Knocked Off

Has anyone noticed a strange squeaking noise for about 3 seconds after engine knocked off?
It sounds like a hamster on a wheel going round! That's the only way I can describe it!

I have a Zetec S TDCI 2011

Thanks in advance!

Frozen White Zs With White Wheels?

Hi I have the chance to buy some White 17" Zetec S alloys but my car is also white and wondered if it would look a bit silly!?

Has anyone got this look that could share a picture? I'd like to see how it looks before considering it!
