After 11 months of ownership and 22.6k miles my mondeo 2.0 tdci (163 bhp) titanium x business edition looks like it has finally become "run in" and turned a corner in terms of economy.
Over the past couple of days and since my last full up it has used 1/3 of a tank, covered 400 miles and averaged 67 mpg. I am mighty impressed.
To be fair it's not the clearest of buttons to understand and it does two functions, it locks the rear windows so they can only be opened by the driver and also activates the child locks.
Glad I could be of some help.
Do you not just switch the child locks on and off using the button on the window console? That's all I've done on mine, I think the switch in the doors is an over ride and that's why you get the error message.

I've had my 2.0 tdci 163 mondeo titanium x business edition for a few months now and clocked up just under 10k miles.
Whilst it's a fairly strong lump under the bonnet, I thought it was lacking a little bit.
So, today, I purchased a DTUK red top tuning box.
Instantly the car came alive, it's now up to 200-210 Bhp and about 440Nm of torque.
I would recommend DTUK to anyone that is thinking of a power upgrade on their car.
Sorry mate, wasn't meaning exotic type cars, just your general run of the mill stuff, and obviously this is just my opinion but I don't think diesels are "fast".
I completely take in board your points though and I agree with everything you have said.
Factually there isn't a thing you said I can argue with.
So I've done almost 5000 miles and the car is just getting better and better.
I've noticed that first thing in a morning when the engine is cold, it's very sluggish, but after a minute or two it's fine.
The car so comfortable and quiet I love driving it, it's far quieter on the road than my Audi was, I imagine the smaller wheels play a part in that.
The car is so full of features it's fantastic value for money.
The only thing that disappoints me is the convers+ system, it doesn't give a visual display of the parking aids, it doesn't display half the information of other models.
All in all I love the car and fully recommend it to anyone considering a mondeo with plenty of toys.
Usually with stuff like this it's the simple stuff, oil level, speed sensor that sort of thing.
I am by no means a mechanic and certainly no ford expert but I've working in engineering for the last 14 years so have picked up a few things along the way
