In Topic: Mondeo MK2 Central Locking Problems

19 October 2009 - 10:40 AM

Hi there,

I am having a few problems with my central locking and I was wondering whether any of you could help me resolve this problem.

When I unlocked my car all doors unlocked except for the drivers doors. After I got home I tried to lock the car and the car wouldnt lock all the doors the drivers had to be locked from the inside to temporarily lock the other doors. Although now this is even tempremental and only works on occasions to suit itself. Im not sure how i can resolve this problem if any of you can help I would much appreciate some input. Or if any of you know a useful website link that may help me resolve this issue.

I await your response.

many thanks



this worked for me by resetting the ecu

Method

The easiest way to reset the ECU is to remove fuses 4 and 11 from the fusebox next to the battery in the engine bay and leave the car for about 15 minutes. (This is the case for the Mk1 and Mk2 Zetec engines. Check your user guide for other models) Identifying the fuses means that you will not have to reset your clock or radio, which you would have to do if you were to disconnect the battery.


When the fuses are re-inserted, your car's ECU will relearn according to how you drive your car. This can take anywhere from a couple of hours to a week or so. However, the following steps might speed the overall process up:


Start the car and leave it idling for 15 minutes or so... it will probably stall a couple of times, but it'll soon level out at just under 1,000 revs

Then take the car out and drive it as carefully as you can for an hour or so

Finally, take it out onto the longest road you can find with a national speed limit and open the throttle up

Mk3

The procedure for the Mk3 is slightly different, according to the Haynes manual. They recommend doing the following once the PCM (or ECU) has been disconnected for a while:


To allow the PCM to relearn, start the engine and run it as close to idle speed as possible until it reaches its normal operating temperature Then run it for approximately two minutes at 1200rpm Next, drive the vehicle as far as necessary - approximately 5 miles of varied driving conditions is usually sufficient to complete the relearning process. Don't forget to reset your one touch windows and change the clock to the correct time!

Note, this mod will also reset your stereo if you disconnect the battery to reset the ECU, so if you dont have a code for it, now is a good time to get one!

In Topic: Boot lid release switch

23 September 2009 - 11:26 PM

Hi. I'm new to this site (glad i found it, it's great) and I have been through the topics on this forum to see if I can find an answer to my problem. No luck as yet.
I have a 2002 Mondeo Zetec and the boot lid release button in the car has stopped working. It doesn't seem to have a fuse so I'm a bit stumped at what to check. Any ideas???
Also, am I right in thinking that all Mondeo's from 2001 onward have timing chains and not belts? I was sure I read it here last night but can't find it now.


i dont know as i have a mk2 if the boot release button if on the door it might have come away from the wiring i had a eletric window switch pack up so i got one from a scrap yard and then found out it just came away might be worth checking that
