Remote Central Locking - Mk2.5

11 November 2015 - 01:51 PM



The other day the fob in my car became quite intermittent. Then stopped all together.


Assumed (Rightly or Wrongly) that it is a new battery required. Changed the battery, and got nothing. So assumed I will need to re-learn the key via the learning mode (0-II 4 times in 3 seconds).


I must have tried to get the car into learning mode, 30 or 40 times to no avail.


Has anyone ever experienced this?


Not sure if it helps...but I was in FF2 & elmConfig a couple of months back changing a few bits....i wonder if I have accidentally unticked/ticked something that I shouldnt have.





K&n Air Induction Kit

Hi Folks,


Just purchased the above. Ive fitted these before but never in a Focus. Anyone have any idea about how these things fit into the engine bay. There isn't much room in there as it is.


Also only ever fitted these on cars that I didnt give a monkeys about...is there anything I should be doing in regards to the ECU? Or will it pick up the added air intake volumes automatically?



Drl Help....please

Hi Lads,


I've recently installed some rather bright running lights to the Focus....they look fantastic during the day, but are far too bright in the evening, even using a dimmer auto switch.


So I have installed a switch so I can simply turn them on/off as and when. All is well at this point.

So to try and take it to the next level. I wanted them to turn on with my footwell lights too (for when I unlock the car for example)


So I attempted what I thought was a circuit but I am having issues with the lights staying on all of the time so I have had to disconnect them

Does anyone have any ideas what I am doing wrong....I'd imagine I'm way off where I need to be

Wheel Refurb Planned....what Colour???

10 February 2015 - 01:09 PM

Lads and Lasses,


Ive decided that the wheels on the Focus need refurbing. They were already scuffed when I got the car, but they took a battering a few weeks back when I had to have the locking nuts ripped off.


So the question is....what colour???

I love the colour they are...when they are clean, but they get filthy really quickly and make the car look dirty.


Anyone ever done these wheels and got any pics?





Travelpilot Fx

14 January 2015 - 11:55 AM

I'm looking at buying a new SatNav DVD unit for the Focus and I currently have the TravelPilot FX (i think)


Does anyone know the resale value on a 2nd hand one of these. The new System is £350 and I will probably never fit the original back to the car.
