1.4 Tdci Charging Problem

14 October 2013 - 06:31 PM

Has anyone had their 1.4 TDCi stop charging but without the battery light being lit? Voltage across the terminals doesn't change when engine is revved. I'm presuming the alternator is likely knackered but the light not staying on is what's really puzzling me. It lights up as normal when you turn the key to acc and goes out as normal when the engine fires.

Lost Power To Cluster And Car Won't Start

29 August 2013 - 08:48 PM

Hope you can help me with this lads. Fitted a a new headunit using the connect 2 kit. All was working perfect so I decided to run the cables for the sub. So whilst fishing the cable through the grommet in the bulkhead, the radio went off. I first thought maybe it timed out so went to switch on the key and nothing. The LCD display is dead and car won't turn over. Checked all fuses.

Central Locking Question

13 August 2013 - 03:43 PM

This may seem like an odd question. Should my 02 mk6 finesse have central locking? At the moment, all doors need to be locked individually so I presumed it just wasn't fitted. However, when I tried to find info on fitting central locking, all I can find is ways to upgrade from manual to remote locking. This has me thinking that it may actually be fitted but not working. Any thoughts?

Mk6 Upgrades

11 August 2013 - 12:55 PM

Hi all. I've just aquired an'02 5dr 1.4 TDCi finesse for free! It's pretty basic but very good mpg. I'm wondering if I can retrofit the electric windows and central locking from a higher model to it. I've already ordered the kit to change the radio and I'm on the lookout for some 2nd hand alloys. Are there any other easy mods you could suggest. It's quite a big difference from my mk3 Mondeo ghia in terms of performance and spec.

Hi all. Recently bought an 06 Mondeo TDCi Ghia to use as my daily driver. Got it very cheap as it has a few small problems that need ironing out. This is my 36th car and my first ever Ford. I'm into Toyota Celicas. I have a '91 GT4 and I'm a mod on the Celicaireland.com forum. I'm looking forward to looking through your forum and I hope I can add some info as well as gaining some.
