  1. I've found them! Just in anyone else is looking. So I had to remove the left hand side panel trim from the boot area. There are two connectors just behind the wheel arch. The wires of interest for reverse and fog are brown with green line and green with brown line, each on the separate connection blocks. I hope this helps someone. Stu
  2. I am connecting a new tow bar to my 2010 2.0 tdci titanium X. All has gone to plan (with the additional smart switch replay) but I can't for the life of me track down the Reverse and Fog light wires. I am hoping I don't need to pull out the left hand side panel out to get to them and that they are nearer to the fuse boxes near the LHS indicator. Has anyone done this/can someone confirm where the best place is to link into them. There is a cluster of wires (about 1inch thick) down near the fuse boxes near the left rear lights....is it in there? Thanks very much in advance. Stu
  3. Thanks for your input - problem solved. For anyone else who might have this problem: One of the vacuum hoses for some reason had popped off, from one side it's obvious, from the other not so. I've added some photos of the obvious side, when you see it, it's like a slap in the face! It's on the right side of the engine near the air filter box.
  4. Little update: erg on my engine is not easy to get to, being a duratorq. Purchased some normfest dc980 air intake cleaner which should clean erg and turbo. Used obd2 to clear error and no warning light. However still lack of power. Interestingly, after a longish drive the dash messages say engine makfunction, but still no engine warning light and obd2 device using torque life says no error codes. Th wanna for additive is still in in the fuel so if that's the issue is hope that will be clearing. Any ideas? Would another dose of dc980 help perhaps? I'm heading towards it being carboned up. Am I expecting too much, too soon? When stationary, if about 2.5k revs i'm sure I can hear the whizz of the turbo.
  5. Thanks, I'll try and take a look, however, a little unsure how I can find where the actuator is for the turbo on my model. Any ideas where I might be able to find one? It's a 2010, 2.0 TDCI Titanium X duratorq engine. Initially mine seemed intermittent, but now seems to be constant and after resetting error, as soon as I accelerate up to to a point where the turbo would kick in, the engine malfunction light pops on again.
  6. OK, a neighbour has a ODB2, gives me the error code: #P2263 . Kind of helpful, but not. Jacked up car and had a look at the DPF pressure hoses. Look in good shape. With the duratorq it looks like the erg is in a righ awkward place to take out (if it's that), is it possible to attempt to clear with carboretta cleaner without taking the engine apart and draining stuff out? I have also seen videos on youtube about the turbo actuator sticking, though not sure where to find that in this engine. I have had a rouch "fell" check of the 2" hose at the front of the engine (assuming this goes into the erg ??) and doesn't feel split. Another thing (might be related) I do have a oil warning message, though dipstick is about 1/4 way up from minimum - but was planning on getting a service done on the MOT in Oct and just topping up oil...but I'm thinking: Why is the oil low? Could it be a sensor? Anything I can check with a volt meter? Am I on the right lines at all as to what to look for? Common issues? Any advice welcome as unfortunately I don't currently have the funds really to have a costly garage visit. Thanks in advance for any input.
  7. Yeah, but I think I missed it because I connected the main one back..or what appeared to be the main one. Out of interest....any idea why there are two thick ground/earth cables?
  8. I have a 2010 titanium x tdci 2.0L mondeo, duratorq engine, 163bhp. Engine malfunction light was intermittent a few months back, now it seems to be constant, it runs fine and accelerates, no smoke, no hissing, but the power just isn't there, like turbo not kicking in. Any ideas? Do I need to do diagnostic, can I diy or do I have to take it to a garage? Thx for any advice. The egr valve looks like a real pain to get on this engine if it's that, which is my current train of thought. What sort of cost might be involved on all cases? Speculation I know!
  9. Hi Damian, yes it was. Unfortunately it was user error.....although I connected + and negative, there was an extra cable that wasn't connected - schoolboy error. All fine now on the battery front. Thanks for your reply.
  10. I know this is old, but I have a 2010 titanium x tdci, duratorq 2.0 mondeo 163bhp. Engine malfunction light was intermittent a few months back, now it seems to be constant, it runs fine and accellerate, no smoke, no hissing, but the power just isn't there, like turbo not kicking on. Any ideas? Do I need to do diagnostic, can I diy or do I have to take it to a garage? Thx for any advice. The egr valve looks like a real pain to get to On this engine if it's that.
  11. I know this is old, but just replaced my battery and no power at all. Although can see 12.7v across + and chassis. Am i missing something? 2010 tdci 2L Thx
