In Topic: Mk 7.5 1L Ecoboost Low Oil Pressure

Sorry, I don't know much about the update. They just told me that there is one available, and that they'll upload it whilst diagnosing my problem.

 

I'll ask more about it when I pick the car up.

 

Having played about with the stereo the past week, I noticed that you can bring up a screen showing software versions for various systems in the car (I can't remember what systems). I'll publish these when I get it back, so that others can compare their versions, and see if there are any variations.

Its not good news. I've just been back to the dealer, and unfortunately come away with a courtesy car.

 

It looks as though the oil pressure switch will need replacing, which needs to be ordered in (of course). Apparently the oil pressure switch is more of a solenoid type device, rather than a simple on-off switch. Something to do with oil pressure pulsating on the ecoboost engines apparently.

 

Anyway, they've been chatting to Ford Technical Dept. most of the day, and thats what the outcome is so far. If the part turns up tomorrow, and they're able to fit it, and test it, and they're happy with it. I should get it back tomorrow afternoon.

 

I'll keep you all updated on the progress of this issue. Hopefully this is just an isolated incident. Unfortunately, happening to me. But I'd be interested to hear if anyone else has experienced the same or something similar.

I don't recall the car nearly stalling. Plus I wasn't looking at the rev counter when the message popped up. I only had enough time to read it before it disappeared. I'm sure I had the clutch down at the time.

 

Anyway, I've taken it to the the dealership. They'll take a look at it. Apparently there is a new software update as well which will be uploaded. Should hopefully get it back this afternoon with an explanation.

Cheers, I'll see if he's gone any left.


In Topic: Fiesta Bulbs List

Looking at the list above, I cannot find what I'm looking for. I don't suppose anyone knows what bulbs are used to illuminate the footwells? I picked up my Fiesta Zetec S today, and whilst the cup holders are illuminated red, the footwells are lit up with standard yellow bulbs.

 

Has anyone been able to replace them with a red alternative?

 

Thanks in advance.
