  1. Has the vehicle had a towbar fitted in the past that has now been removed ? Hyper flash of the indicator warning lights on the instrument cluster is a warning that the trailer module is faulty or disconnected.
  2. So you don't want front face brake lights ? 🤣
  3. Nope 🤣 I had the top of the picture off the top of my screen so didn't even see the little icon. The engine does sound a bit rattly but I'd not say it was the turbo. Assuming the engine has the correct specification oil then I would see if you can find another car with the same engine to compare the sound.
  4. Well there's a name from the past "Slick50" and strangely enough the only oil additive I've ever used and it did work without a doubt (twice). Back in the day I had a 1983 (A) Orion 1.3 GL and to get the car in reverse gear first thing in the morning after standing over night was a daily battle. I happened by chance to come across Slick50 gearbox oil treatment (not recommended to me by anyone) and I thought I'd give it a try. Sure enough in less than a couple of weeks the gearbox was fine, no more daily challenges of trying to get reverse gear. My neighbor also had a 1983 Orion 1.6 Ghia (more money than me 😉) with the same problem. So we added the a bottle of Slick50 gearbox oil and again within 2 weeks the problem was fixed.
  5. You could have a screw loose 😉 PS. I'm not getting any sound on your video.
  6. Yes the instrument cluster would be the first place I'd check.
  7. There is lots of advice and even Youtube videos on how to repair the broken wires of the adaptive headlight on a Focus Mk3, but no mention of the Mondeo.
  8. You need the "expensive" adaptive headlight. eBay: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/275766918631
  9. It would seem you have the wrong version headlight, and they are not interchangeable. You risk causing damage to the BCM depending on how the replacement light is configured. There are at least 4 or more different headlight versions for the Mondeo Mk4, you need to check the full part number and make sure the new one is the same. For example, if your original light is part number 7S71-13K060-AB then a replacement must be the same part, the only letter that can be different is the last one. So you could use 7S71-13K060-AC, 7S71-13K060-AD, 7S71-13K060-AE. However you could not use an older unit like 7S71-13K060-AA.
  10. It's called 'Performance Blue' Clive has it in his profile 🤣
  11. Do you not have a television in your house ? 🤣🤣 Ray you never cease to amaze me with your involvement with the 1.0 Ecoboom. I love the test rig and surprised at how apparently easily the water is leaking. So now you just need to work out how to repair the crack. Maybe you could get a guest appearance on Car SOS 👍
  12. The OP is suffering from 'turbo lag' they've not been back yet to check for any answers 🤣
  13. There is at least a 90% chance it's a simple case that the batteries health is failing. The voltage of 12.08V is very poor and even once the car has started to enter sleep mode a voltage of 12.30V is still only 70% Your car uses a Smart charge system and as such charging voltages between 13.6V and 14.9V are quite normal and will constantly change. Time to open the wallet and dig deep, looks like you need a new battery.
  14. I don't even know how or why they manage to unearth old dead posts.
  15. Far more likely to be a suspension issue. Lots of moving parts that break and just wear out. Coil springs, shock absorbers, track rod ends, CV joints, or even just the rubber bushes on things like the anti-roll bar. A problem with the differential would be the very last thing on my list to check.
  16. Shhhhhhhh !!!!!! Don't give the idiots any ideas or they'll double the tax 🙁 Diesel at Tesco Durham is £138.9 today 😀
  17. I just had my motorbike MOT'd today and it failed 🙁 The High Beam and the Dipped Beam were crossed over !! I've had the bike for nearly 5 years and this is the forth MOT that I've had done, so the previous 3 tests never noticed the lights being the wrong way. Since I never ride at night I've never noticed the lights been wrong, but I have been riding with the High beam on all of the time 🙄 On the plus side the guy took the wiring to the back of the headlight apart and swapped the wires over for free and then passed the bike 😀
  18. You will get a much better response if you post some photos.
  19. If you disconnect the smart charge plug on the alternator does the charging voltage fall to the default of 13.6V ? You can use FORScan to both check for any Ford specific DTC's and also use it to monitor live data. My guess at the problem is that the earth bond straps between the engine and the chassis are either: Missing, Corroded, or high resistance.
  20. Check the wiring and the connector plugs of the TCM. They are a common source of problems like yours.
