In Topic: Titanium X Ecoboost 125 Slow To Warm Up On Cold Days

23 November 2015 - 11:15 PM

Think the post came from member not in uk,
I imagine auxillary heaters are market related as in colder climate countrys,
Uk petrol engines ive seen never have them, well ive never seen them , diesels I have and in electrical form and fuel fired.


Strange thinking of Ford, because the UK has a colder climate than The Netherlands. Weird that we do get a standard PTC heater on all the Ecoboost models.

Retrofitting should be possible, but it's a lot of work. You need to check if your heater box is compatible with a PTC heater. If it is, you need to remove you dashboard to place the heater element. After that you have to install the complete wiring loom and activate it with an IDS computer. 


A lot of work :)

Later versions of the Titanium (X) are fitted with a PTC heater. Because the 1L ecoboost is an efficient motor, it produces less heat.

When I hooked up an OBD cable with Forscan, there was a DTC fault that said there was a problem with the PTC heater. I turned out to be a faulty relay underneath the LHD headlight. When I replaced the relay the DTC was not there anymore and the interior heated up a lot faster.  


You could buy an OBD cable and download forscan, or ask you're dealer to check for DTC's.

No, the Fiesta has another mounting system.

The only 'oem'ish mounting is the overhead Mondeo one. But you need to cut out a peace of your headlining. 

In Topic: Mk7 Titanium - New Alarm?

What do you mean retro fit a perimeter alarm? do you mean getting an original from Ford?

Exactly. I retrofitted the Thatcam Cat1 alarm in my MK7,5. This was never an option on the MK7, but the perimeter was.

This alarm only needs two parts, the horn in the boot and a bonnet-catch with sensor. The only tricky part is the replacement of the asbuild file.

Some dealers will help you with this.
