  1. A failure of the "Time Space Continuum" occurred today when two vehicles tried to occupy the same space at the same time ! Police are searching for the driver and passenger of the Focus RS as they fled the scene moments after the crash leaving the driver of the Mercedes wondering what the hell just happened. The Focus RS will undoubtedly be a total write off as both sides are smashed in and the 'B' posts bent like a banana. If the driver was the very recent owner of the car they are going to be well out of pocket as the vechicle is not taxed which will probably mean the insurance (if there is any) will be void.
  2. Have a search around this forum and you'll find that the same gearbox in America gets serviced approximately at 37000 miles. They are not actually sealed for life it's just Ford didn't bother to fit a drain plug 🤣
  3. Yes it is the 'exact' cable that I bought from Amazon last May. Have used it lots and can confirm it is the real vLinker FS cable.
  4. Hi Scott, you could still have a fault with the supply wires to the speed controller. Checking with a multimeter can sometimes still show 12V but it dies when under load. Disconnect both the input plug and the output plug from the speed controller. Then carefully use some short bits of wire to link the positive supply over to the positive output, and do the same with the negative. In effect you are just removing the speed controller from the circuit. The Fan should now run at full speed just as it did when you used the crocodile (alligator if you're American 🤣) clips on to the battery. Using this method will prove the supply is working correctly. After that you are looking at either your replacement speed controller is faulty. Or the PWM signal from the PCM is not correct, but you will need to check that with a scope.
  5. Poster's you know what they're like !! 🤣 Some even get new cars and don't even update their profiles 😉
  6. You will not find any suitable seats for your car here in the UK, our cars are RHD. The drivers seat and the passenger seat are not the same. You need seats from a LHD car.
  7. Hi Jaker, it might be a good idea to modify your profile details to show what model car you have. At the moment it just says Mk2.5 and since you are posting this in the general Ford forum its not immediately obvious. The issue could be with the Keyless Aerial or with the Remote Key Module (RKM). Have you used FORScan to check for any faults being logged ? I'm not 100% certain where the Keyless Aerial is on your car but on many Fords it is located in the head lining just behind the courtesy light.
  8. That would be correct for a 2012 S-Max See Ford owners handbook Page 174 https://www.fordservicecontent.com/Ford_Content/catalog/owner_guides/ENUSA_CG3533_GLX_og_201204.pdf
  9. More info would help. Are you looking for help with: Bodywork, Engine, Gearbox, Suspension, Electrics ? Do you have a particular problem or are you just wanting a standard service ?
  10. It sounds very much like you have water ingress to the Body Control Module (BCM) quite a common issue on your model. BEFORE you investigate the BCM disconnect the car battery. The BCM is part of the passenger compartment fusebox located under the glovebox. Remove all connectors and look for signs of water ingress and/or greenish corrosion of the connector pins and sockets.
  11. Your replacement has the "Exact" same part number ??? Has the replacement BCM has been fully reprogrammed with your cars 'AsBuilt' data file ??? Have you used FORScan to check the Ford specific DTC's ?
  12. Most Ford puddle lamps are held in the same way.
  13. As Alex has said you need to use FORScan and read all the Ford specific DTC's. From the info given above by @rd457 I would say that this is a Body Control Module problem. Either it is suffering the common problem of water ingress or it has had the BCM replaced with the wrong one.

  14. Too subtle Alex 🤣 The OP also has a Ford model "Morgan" perhaps a joint venture with the sports car company ?
  15. I hope @darbs you're not expecting any kind of response from Forduzer who only ever made one post and was last seen on the forum 14th March 2020. If you have a question start a new thread with as many details of your problem. Ford - Batteries 2010.pdf

  19. Just to add to what Steven has said, it is the 'Car' that gets programmed to recognise the key. People often talk about getting the 'Key' programmed which is wrong. With a genuine key it is manufactured with a unique code for example 87654321 and another key might be 8765123 the 'Car' is programmed to accept either of the keys as been correct. Clone keys have a programmable integrated circuit inside and a company like Timpsons will simply take one of you working keys and clone it. So you will for example end up with two keys both with the code 87654321. Now if in the future you lose one of the keys with that code you will have to have that code deleted from the cars memory. That will leave you with only one working key, and a spare key that no longer works.
  20. When did the gearbox last have a full service with complete oil change and filter replaced? This is not part of any regular service the car may have had and usually cost around £300
  21. See this thread on BCM problems on the Mondeo. There is a video in the thread which shows the water ingress.
  22. The cause is a faulty Body Control Module (BCM) which is part of the passenger compartment Fusebox located up behind the glovebox. The BCM will have water ingress which can be caused by water from the screen wash pump tracking back along the wires and eventually corroding the the BCM. BEFORE investigating the condition of the Body Control Module, disconnect the car battery. Then remove the connectors from the BCM and check for water ingress and corrosion.
