#482014 First Time Escort Owner... Concerned With Shifting...

Posted by Dan62 on 03 May 2015 - 08:54 AM

The auto box in the escort is a CTX so has no 1st, 2nd or 3rd gear etc.

Attached is the description and operation which should answer your questions.

Its usually the 'Door open' switch within the door lock unit.

The connector for all clusters are the same.

The tachometer is fed from the ECU to pin 21 of the cluster connector (White/Black) so you will need to make sure the wire has been fitted.


There is no mention of having to reconfigure the cluster using WDS so looks like it should work without reconfiguring or pairing the cluster to the ECU.


The cluster does store the odometer information so a different cluster will show the mileage of the vehicle it was taken from.



#469053 Fiesta Mk6 - Where To Find Fuel Pump Relay?

Posted by Dan62 on 24 March 2015 - 10:13 AM

As above, its behind the glovebox, small relay on the far left of the fuse/relay board

The decal on the back of the glovebox should show it as R6 and has a picture of a petrol pump.

#469042 99 Ka, Is There An Immobilizer Bypass?

Posted by Dan62 on 24 March 2015 - 09:53 AM

If the key had a red tab on it, it should be a 2 key system, and according to the documentation 2 key pats was fitted to KA's from 98.5 model year on.


The older 3 key system with a master key I seem to remember the whole body of the key was red.

#421429 Fiesta Mk6 Kam Fuse

Posted by Dan62 on 21 October 2014 - 04:15 PM

Possibly F16 in the fusebox behind the glovebox

#421110 Please Help!

The assembly is the Heater Core Housing.

Very unlikely that you can replace the gear in situ and its a big job to remove and replace the housing.


The gear is a bevel gear.


As already suggested try and obtain another housing and see if you can find a way to replace the gear without having to remove the assembly. Found this one on ebay

#420327 Water Leak

Posted by Dan62 on 18 October 2014 - 08:45 AM

Have a look at the attached PDF, it gives some good pointers for leaks.


Smoke pellets and UV dyes can be bought off ebay to do the more advanced tests.


Good luck, I know how annoying a leak is and trying to find out where its coming from.

#414279 Central Locking Not Working !!!

Posted by Dan62 on 28 September 2014 - 12:10 PM

Depending on what part of 1999 it was built I would suggest you double check fuse F8 (pre sept.99) or F21 (post sept 99).

#413643 Focus Rs Nav/interior Lights Failure :(

The relay is shown as an internal component of the passenger junction box (not replaceable). If it was replaceable it would be shown with a relay number and connectors, it is just drawn as part of a circuit so its internal.

The ignition does not by-pass the relay.

From checking the wiring diagram all power you have missing comes through this relay, either the relay is not switching, there is a bad connector from the junction box to the wiring harness or the 12v feed is missing.

It could be the battery saver relay or the power to it.

Check for 12v at fuse location F104, if no 12v here check F4 near the battery is good (60A fuse).

#412770 Airbag Light Wont Come On! Solve Or Crush?

Posted by Dan62 on 24 September 2014 - 11:42 AM

I just checked the wiring diagram and the airbag light is shown as an LED not a normal bulb like others in the instrument cluster.

It would explain why putting a good bulb in that position doesn't work.

#408659 Getting Eac Fault

Posted by Dan62 on 11 September 2014 - 06:17 PM

I understand your frustration but its a process of elimination and the throttle body is the likely suspect.


As for the ecu connector, you have to drill out the security bolt. It is fitted with a bolt who's head detaches when it is tightened.

Use a stack of washers or something that will fit in the end of the bolt hole and guide a drill bit to drill the centre of the bolt.


Do you have the wiring diagrams and pinouts for the connector(s) ?
