  3. I don't know, programming is not something that I know a lot about, there are others on here that do. The only advice I would give is to do your homework first, read up as much as you can.
  4. It's a software update on the GPF issue. Had that on mine 2018 Mk4 Focus 1.0 EcoBoost and have never had a message "Drive to clean...etc" after that.
  5. I suppose if they sold it as an Automatic Parking Brake some people would expect it to come on when they stopped but before they turned the engine off, which might be several minutes later. In that situation you would pull a manual handbrake up, not wait until you switched the engine off and opened the door. That failsafe will only work if Auto Hold is active, which is not all the time for various reasons and is primarily to stop the car rolling if there is not enough pressure.

  8. Hi I had our 2013 Ford Ka (43k miles) MOT done at Kwik Fit today and the following was flagged after it passing: Monitor and repair if necessary (advisories): Suspension component corroded but not seriously weakened rear suspension beam corroded getting close on limit (5.3.3 (b) (i)) Suspension component corroded but not seriously weakened front shocks corroded (5.3.3 (b) (i)) Rear Coil spring corroded both (5.3.1 (b) (i)) Has anyone ever had these flagged and addressed them and have an idea of cost? Kwik Fit said they would be unable to do the suspension beam, but could do the rest. Just hoping for a rough idea of costs please. Many thanks, Ant

  10. Not sure it's shaming really, more potentially saving another member from the same expensive fate, but I understand what you mean. I've known Ashley (AJ) for over a decade and he's knowledgeable about pretty much anything electronic so I'd still keep him in mind if he's local to you.
  11. I don't know for certain but It would make more sense to apply it to all the wheels for safety reasons and there is no technical reason why not. I was once on the mother of all steep icy roads (not in this car) and it was so bad that I stopped to weigh up the situation and my handbrake, which obviously only works on the back wheels would not hold me, I had to push the Footbrake to lock all 4 wheels to have enough friction to stop sliding. Two locked wheels are often not enough.

  13. It does, you just have to pull the latch on the drivers door 😄

  16. Yes, but the effect to the driver is that the car is held automatically. Most people don't know (or probably care) about the functional difference between the two. I can't see any reason why the EPB shouldn't automatically apply when you switch the engine off. Seems weird that it's just meant to be a 'failsafe' rather than a permanent feature.
  17. Not used the car (2008 1.6s) for couple of days , started it tonight and there was a knock/ donk noise , (like when someone taps the back of the car to make you jump lol ) I thought it strange , but assumed it's due to not using it , I drove to carpark , once laded shopping I started it up again and the noise happened again ?? Doest happen while driving , and the car does not stall or have any other issues apart from intermittent immobiliser Has anyone else had these issues or any ideas?? Thanks guys
  18. They just tried to refit the bits that the first guys fitted. The parts were never going to fit on the original front pipe as they were the wrong size.
  19. Hi, I have been told that there is an "updated" timing belt which has been fitted to some cars. Does anyone know if this is so and what the difference is to the old ones. ty.

  25. I very much doubt that "siggy_7" cares anymore, that post is 4 years old now. Also 1.0 Ecoboost engines with wet belts should never be flushed, other than by doing repeated oil changes with the normal engine oil. The use of any flushing oil will cause the wet belts to deteriorate.
