  1. Many thanks! I'll have a look at this when it gets lighter today. The whole issue stopped after I'd posted this, until about 20 minutes ago. It's half 3 in the morning, let me sleep 😫😭 the best you can do is disconnect the battery and manually lock all the doors. Passenger, and rear doors you use your key blade on the inside of the open door to latch the barrel. It looks like a hole for the child safety locks but much smaller. Once turned, close the door and it should latch and lock. Drivers door you can use the key blade itself in the key barrel. that’s the only way I managed to get

  3. See for me, I had all of what you described too. But it took me a while to get the B10E7 code. Seemed to clear itself and then on the off chance I managed to capture it. After lots of research and digging, finally lead me to the BCM. Oh what a fun week that was! had to disconnect my battery and manually lock all the doors overnight. best part is, I could have re-flashed the BCM myself but unfortunately you need two original keys to programs the PATS system and then marry them to the BCM. That part requires a lovely ford subscription and IDS. They don’t make it easy do they?
  4. When I’ve got chance and back at a computer. I’ll do a write up above the whole issue. Mods, once done could we get the new thread pinned? the amount of people in the recent weeks with this issue is quite a lot. thanks!
  5. I have been following this topic with great interest. There have not been any occurrences of this sort of failure on my cars so far, and I would be prepared to put some effort into protecting my electrics so that it didn't happen to me. When I have been fumbling round down there doing the pollen filter and fitting my Dash Cam it's all been dry but since I am a fair weather fixer this might be just what you would expect. So, what action can I take to protect myself? Do I need to carefully fit a sturdy plastic bag over the BCM/fuse box thingy? Do I need to fit a new washer fl
  6. Unfortunately, yours looks a lot worse than mine did. Regardless off cleaning the contacts on the BCM, the internals will be fried. The BCM is pretty much useless at this point. so all in all, it’s going to be a new BCM and someone will have to replace the connector end on that harness will a new one. also, to prevent this, you should be looking to replace the washer fluid pump itself and the connector. Through capillary action the fluid travels up the harness and back to the BCM. I believe the harness is the engine wiring harness, I don’t think there’s a separate one that connects to the eng
  7. Everything you describe is exactly the issues I had with my 14 plate focus ST. I had to stall my car to switch off the engine!! Was ridiculous! All electronics went off though. it honestly sounds like the BCM is fried (body control module). And this would probably be down to the known fault of a faulty washer fluid pump and the fluid leaking through the harness and back to the BCM. mine started off with the car alarm randomly going off throughout the night. Plugged the laptop in to see that the ignition process had kicked in and with the car locked this therefore triggered the alarm. passen
  8. Side note, where did you get the US style Facia from? Kinda missing my central locking button and just wondering how much you paid and where you sourced the Sony Facia from? as a temp solution, I ended up wiring the central locking pins to the blank button next to traction control and making it push able. Believe it or not, it’s actually not a blank button... you just need to file down two plastic stoppers and it’s a fully working button :)
  9. Hey! it was a sync 1 with a Sony audio panel from what I remember, nothing in the boot. Just a bit annoying that when swapping to the sync 2 acm the sound isn’t as ‘full’ or ‘deep’ as it used to be. just going to bite the bullet and by the original acm, I’ve got pictures of when I listed it on eBay.. so will use the model and number on the side to find a match.
  10. Thanks mate! there’s a few different styles on eBay, In the sense that behind the logo there’s different mounting methods. Any ideas if there was a difference between the standard mk3 and the mk3 ST tail gate badge? the ones I’ve seen look to be hollowed out with double sided tape in there and then others have clips like you’d just clip the badge on. can you see why I’m struggling? I might just have to bite the bullet and get the fishing wire and hair dryer out and see what happens LOL.
  11. Sorry - probably already mentioned. Did you come from a Sony sync 1 headunit? If so, did you upgrade to sync 3 or sync 2? Reason I ask, the ACM from a Sync 3 setup is pretty much the same as an original Sony ACM, sound wise. This was noted earlier on near the beginning of this thread. So for me, it’s either a Sony ACM or Sync 3 ACM unless I can program This one or something :)
  12. Mines has a slight damp under the spare wheel still to do mines. I should really check mine in the next few days, not been anywhere near the spare wheel well since June/July last year. fingers crossed haha.
  13. I know it’s not a problem now, but I should really pop the rear bumper off and check my vents for the famous ‘boot leak’ :/ knowing my luck they’re probably sealed shut or something stupid 😂
  14. At this point, I’m half tempted to buy the original Sync 1 Sony ACM and put that back in. I know it kills traffic updates or something but not too bothered. I believe someone else did this too!
