2001 Fiesta Heating Problem

29 January 2014 - 10:20 PM

Right after a loss of heating to the other halfs fiesta I ran through the basics. Heater valve was faulty so replaced, discovered thermostat was stuck open so replacef that, flushed out the matrix and the rest of the system. Started the car and got only warmish air coming through. Checked for pulsating voltage at the heater control valve and all is good. Really I'm at a dead loss as to what else is stopping the car heating from getting warm. My other half wouldnt mind but shes just had a little one and I really dont want her driving it around in the cold snaps without heating. On a side note I've also bled the system best I could and believe all the air is out of the matrix and pipe work.
Thanks in advance if anyone can help

2001 Festa Reversing Light Problem

01 July 2013 - 09:37 AM

reversing light isn't working, check gearbox switch and wiring bulb connector is getting 12 volts when reverse is selected, ran a 12 volt led accross and works fine but attach a 5watt or 21 watt bulb and nothing happens. Also when you plug a bulb in you lose voltage down to zero between the 12volt switch wire and the earth. Anyone got any suggestions? Thanks :)
