  • Ford Zetec 2005 instrument panel click noise - All lights and many warnings appear on dashboard

    Hello all! I'm having a strange issue with my car that can be best described as completely bizarre! When starting the car from cold, I seem to be getting a click sound from the dashboard, all the lights appear on the dashboard and I'm getting a transmission warning and engine malfuncition warning. Another click will happen and is all well? The time between the clicks appear to be different with no patten between it all. If I turn off the car and turn it back on, I'll either get it work

    Limp Mode

    Ford Focus Zetec S 1.0 2013 (MK3) To begin; I was driving down the motorway and suddenly thick white smoking coming out the exhaust. Stopped by services phoned recovery (RAC) and explained the issue. Technician came and diagnosed the issue to be the turbo. Took my car to the local garage and had the turbo replaced (re-conditioned). Fast forward one week and the real trouble began. Engine malfunction (service now) came up and car goes on limp mode. Took it back to the garage fault code showe

    MK3 Transmission Control Module failure - Can I continue to drive?

    Hello all, I have owned a 2012 5 door Focus since 2012 and so far have avoided any MAJOR transmission issues until yesterday.  Upon starting my car yesterday morning a warning message popped up alerting me to transmission error, service now.  Symptoms include jerking shifting and not shifting past 3rd or 4th gear.  I was able to get my Focus in to the local dealership early in the morning and received a call back from them a few hours later stating the Transmission Control Module (TCM) is b

    Fiesta 1.6 tdci black expansion tank and rough idle

    Hi all just picked up on old 09 fiesta 1.6 tdci and having a few issues. Starting the car from cold can be quite hard and once started the revs bounce about until its got some heat in it. The expansion tank is also black and I can hear bubbles or gargling with the lid of I'm fairly sure it's exhaust. Any ideas what's going on I've plugged it into a fairly basic scanner and have no fault codes stored. No water is mixing with oil

    • I don't like that due to a shortage of silicone chips in the world due to something to do with Texas in America,  That there's a shortage in the range of availability of Pioneer Double Din head-units, aside from all other electronics in the world at the moment, moving on from that one now; there are a few nice models still available; but that's also a problem for me, there price is as they should be; within the UK,  but I'm living in the republic of Ireland, where i would be charged around 100 euro on customs charges a combination of VAT & import tax,  so; I went on to eBay UK to find a good one; Pioneer SPH-DA230DAB copied the model number, then logged on to amazon.de and Ebay.de followed by pasting in the model number to the search bar,  I found a two sellers shipping from Germany via DHL for 15 euro, with the head-unit price being 20euro higher than the UK sellers, however the rest of the sellers outside of the UK are asking for 100-140euro higher than the sellers within the UK because they know people will pay it rather than face import tax and VAT charges.  however when payday arrived for me; there was only one seller left; so the Pioneer double din cost me 34euro more than the UK selling price but still 66euro less than purchasing from the likes of Dynamic Sounds in Manchester which is where I've purchased all my previous models.  I'm glad I managed to get one of the last cheap Pioneer SPH-DA230DAB 7" Double-Din available at 399euro + 15 shipping total 414euro/354.76pounds; The rest of Europe is copping on though and increasing prices to be only 20 cheaper than import fees from the UK. here's the UK price: Pioneer SPH-DA230DAB 7" Apple CarPlay Android Auto GPS DAB Bluetooth USB System 3780572773799 | eBay  Here's the cheapest European alternative which ships to Ireland: Pioneer SPH-DA230DAB 7" Apple CarPlay Android Auto GPS DAB Bluetooth USB System 3780572773799 | eBay
    • Hi John, it arrived today (early), went in the slot easy enough and seemed to work straight away. I'll let you know tomorrow how it goes after a test run. Bob  
    • Thanks for this Bob, could I be cheeky and ask you to let me know how it goes. Many thanks
    • £55 fee to register. If you want age related reg no you need proof of age eg original reg doc or letter from an owners club that has dvla approval. As it is over 40 years old it will be mot and tax exempt as long as not majorly modified in last 30 years ( I know 30 yrs sounds odd) . You only need to provide insurance evidence if you live in Northern Ireland, don’t know why NI is different. Earlier this year dvla we’re taking 4 or 5 weeks to do it, don’t know if that is usual or just covid delays. I have not registered any import cars, but have done 2 motorbikes. Think it’s exactly the same
