  • Disconnecting Seat

    Afternoon All, I wanted to ask for your thoughts. When driving and taking a tight corner the seat belt base is pushed out by my body moving, and it seems to trigger the sensor that shows the seat belt isn't plugged in, which inst the case. I wanted to know if I was to just unplug the electrics from the seat would this disable the airbags? I am assuming that there is loose wiring which is causing the issue, but nothing that can be clearly seen. I am just looking for a simple fix that id

    Bad water pump??

    Hi all, I’m new to the group so not quite sure how this works but I’ve been to about three garages who’ve all said they’ll have to charge a full days labour to try and find out what this sound is and even then they might not found it, I’ve been told to ignore it until it’s really bad but it’s bugging me. This is a medium to high pitched humming noise coming from driver side best heard when engine is stationary or below 20mph, and when inside cabin with all windows heard. Can be heard when bonnet

    • Update on this one, EAC fail appearing was due to alternator control cables being rotten and corroded - battery voltage 11.4v, replaced the 3 pin connector and rewired got rid of the message with alternator now running at 14.5v,  however car still in limp mode which was the MAF sensor at fault. No fault codes appeared on the obd scanner, but it is an old one which is due to be replaced with a better / modern one.
    • If you search for posts the guru of all things ford spoke about FUN with these... I think this is too new, go past a certain date and a bit is MISSING .... I think the idea is the locking IR receiver isn't on the really late GEMs which is OK for much later cars as they do something differently, go back the the one you originally spoke about and thats OK    the last 2 characters on the part number the first (C) means its a basic unit and only supports a low toy count... but quite late in life with E (as you'd expect on a 2009 car), CB was fitted to the most basic 2007 cars FD would be a safe bet supports lots of toys and FE might be OK,  I think ending with a F misses out on the IR bit you need      
    • Well if the factory is due to open 26 March and with a huge back log it’s a guessing game!
    • Just and up date removed all fuses and fuse box cleaned and reassembled and no change, so the next thing would be that the cluster is starting to fail or am I missing somthing 
    • All decent 'smart' chargers need connecting to the battery. It will detect that you have the correct polarity, then detect what type of battery you have, then what kind of charge you need, then it will cook the battery as appropriate. When done, it will stop charging, and turn to trickle mode where you can leave it if you wish. or then disconnect when done. As for performance, they all charge a battery as needed. But if you have £70 burning a hole in your pocket, go get one at that price 🤣 The retailer will be happy you called in...
