03 Focus Soft Brakes... Worried

15 January 2014 - 10:39 PM

Just had my two rear sets of pads changed on my 03 Focus and i came to drive it and the brakes pedal went down a long way before any effective breaking. If i "pumped" the pedal 2/3 times it would become more firm/responsive but if i let it sit for a few seconds it would settle back down to being soft and unresponsive again.

 

Any ideas?

 

Cheers

Car Runs Fine Then All Lights Come On And Speedo + Rev Count Stops

19 December 2013 - 10:42 AM

So i was driving home from work, car struck up fine, but after 15 mins the lights on the dash started to show, which shouldnt happen and the speedo and rev counter decided to stop working. i got home, turned car off, tried to strike up again and it just "ticked" when i turned the key.

 

got a friend to jump start it, worked fine.

 

next morning worked fine, got home, worked all day fine..

 

next day did the same thing 5 minutes after leaving for work. pulled by the roadside and tried to restart car.. didnt work.. just a ticking noise.

 

jump lead again and its fine. took it to a garage and they cant find anything wrong.

 

so left garage , played up again. left it on drive for 5 mins with lights on, came back to it and the lights were off.. tried to restart car and it worked fine..

 

any ideas?

 

Cheers

Fitting Aftermarket Headunit In 2003 1.8 Zetec Tdci

30 September 2013 - 07:11 PM

Hey guys,

 

my first post on here and i cant find any posts relating to what i need help for.

 

basically i just totalled my peugeot 307 and i wanna put my headunit out of that into my new focus. either that or a new headunit that fits nicely into where the current unit is.

 

however its an odd size, not single dim , or double dim so kinda need some advice on what my options are.

 

I'd like to play music from my ipod. but i dont want a massive gap left from just using a single dim head unit..

 

 

any help would be appreciated

 

cheers
