Hi all help needed its not all the time but when i go to the car i have to put the code in the stereo? i have checked all wires/plugs on back and all are ok.

do you guys have any ideas what it could be, the first time it just went off whilst driving and refused to show any signs of life for 2 days but since i have had to put the code in 3 times in 2 weeks

cheers

Got the battery checked the other week 3 weeks ago as the wife left the boot open with the light on for over a day to find out it being flat so went and got it checked and they tested it and said it just needs charging

Right been out to the car this morning, the negative terminal was a little loose so i tightened it up, also put a metre across it and there is only 11.99 v seems a little low, this battery was charged only a few weeks ago

battery is either not the right one ie silver calcium or its faulty then the code will only be asked for if the battery has got so low that the ecu cant keep the memory alive which is whats happening so the battery is either incorrect spec has a duff cell or is just simply passed it the ecu will also be losing memory such as driving style etc so fuel economy may have gone down you may also experience the dials doing a sweep when you start the car

when a battery gets to a certain age and runs down theres just no way of recovering them if they understood the ford system they would know that the battery gets up to 14.4v pumped through it to charge the battery so if the battery is in good condition it should rarely need charged unless the cars being left for long periods of time like 2 weeks without moving if theres a ford near you they would do a free battery and load test on it for you have you started the car and done the dash trick to see what the battery charging voltage reads
