  1. I have the same car, it'll start with everything turned on! My gut says that despite your battery test, a new battery will sort you out...
  2. Do you have a spare key you could try?
  3. Just me or do others hate the fact that 'photofuckit' have destroyed a whole internets worth of really informative threads!!
  4. Geeze, I can't believe £800 for a Focus headlamp! That's pretty scandalous. Sorry buddy, not much help I know, but I almost got my whole car for that! What a disgrace. Surely in this era of environmental fanaticism, there must be a workshop somewhere than can repair the 10p bit rather than throwing a whole unit in the bin?
  5. Not exactly Forscan, but old school will work just as well...
  6. Matt, stop being such a spoilsport! LOL I wouldn't change mine back to the Victorian type ones if you paid me! My LED sidelights are brighter than the headlamps in my first car, though that was 40 years ago 🤣
  7. Send these guys a message stating your car, superb quality! Used them in a previous Mercedes, and I've had them in my Focus for over a year now, and still bright as ever and rock solid. Don't buy cheap Chinese ones, you'll have nothing but hassle, and the good ones aren't big money anyway! http://www.ebaystores.co.uk/premiumledstore
  8. Pretty sure the answer is no, it's a stupid design. You may find this thread of interest where I and the poster installed new sockets!
  9. I too have front wheel spin, especially noticeable this morning on an icy road! But occasionally in wet too. I have the absolute cheapest budget tyres fitted, and it really doesn't concern me. I reckon it's my cars way of telling me to slow down and not drive stupidly LOL I have owned much more powerful cars in the past, and driving on the limit was fun. Now I just want to get from A to B and am prepared to accept my cars limitations. I'm sure someone will suggest buying premium brand tyres at £100/corner good luck with that...
  10. You can never have too many sockets! From my new single switched one, I now have access to 6 x sockets and a USB slot. I can now run my: TPMS & DAB Radio & Bluetooth Handsfree & SatNav & phone charger. Of course all you modern guys will have all this built in!
  11. Here's an alternative, seconds to fit onto door card, £2 off Ebay LOL
  12. I have to tell you mine certainly goes off automatically after about 10 minutes. Can't believe there are any cars where it stays on. It draws a big current and even as a safety issue, should switch itself off...
  13. I've always said that if you have a bunch of cable ties, some gaffer tape, and a can of WD40 in the boot, you'll always get home... 😂
  14. I too had a disappointing experience with WBAC, they also reneged on a 'guaranteed' price on my old C class Merc because they said I never told them it had an LPG conversion, even though I had email proof that they knew! Shower of to*&$%s! Good luck with the puggie...
