    in terms of swapping out stereo I may or may not do this....but do you know if you have to change the display screen or just the stereo?

    i prefer the titanium, the one I've seen has the standard radio though but loads of other extras, keyless entry push button start etc, auto wipers etc.... its an 09 plate I'm wondering if you can swap out the radio for a sony version?

    Fiesta Titanium 2009

    Hi Guys, After someone inconsiderately crashed into the wife parked MK6 2004 fiesta flame before Xmas, and is now a write off I need to replace it. Looking at the Mk7 models now, a few have come up on autotrader, gumtree etc. but don't know much about this model if it is that different from the MK6 Would prefer to go for a facelift model but unfortunately budget restrictions means I will be looking at the 2009 - 2012 models, think facelift was 2013 --> I am going to view a 2011 zetec trim tomorrow, and also an 2009 titanium model both 1.4 petrol anything to look out for or a particular model to avoid? any advice appreciated cheers gregg

    Dash going hay wire

    Possibly a failing battery. I had a few random dash messages pop up last month or so, and then the cold weather came and last night my battery failed on me. All fixed now

    Help (non starter) focus 1.8 2008

    Battery wasnt holding charge. AA new battery fitted,all seems ok started her over a few times. Only weird thing being the outside temp still saying -59 deg c and when trying to re program clock it wouldn't go past the year 2013. Weird ?? 🤔

    Help (non starter) focus 1.8 2008

    Headlights working and all interior lighting works, dash lights up. Tried electric windows and were a bit slow closing. Tried starting again and strange clicking when trying to start her but just not turning over at all. Ran dash trick mode. Battery level says 10.8v. Then found all these dtc Dtc 900 Dtc e510 Dtc 5759 Hopefully just a battery issue as have had heated screens and air con in the recent weather spell. Looks like a trip for the AA
  8. Thought it struggled to start this morming tbh. Managed to drive home but just went to pop out... And wont start, not turning over at all. All kinds of crazy messages on display, "power steering malfunction", "transmission failure", outside temp says -60 deg c!!! Could this be battery or alternator possibly, gonna go and put it in diagnostics mode shortly and see if that sheds any light Any help appreciated. Cheers
  9. Thanks. Yeah will keep an eye on it.
  10. Yeah just tried it under load as you suggested and the voltage dropped to 11.6v at lowest. Fluctuated between this and 12v whilst under a full load. Load used at same time as below:- Heated front & rear screens Front headlamps full beam Front & rear fogs All interior lighting Air conditioning on full Front Wipers on max
  11. Done the dash trick. Battery is 11.8v without engine running, 13.8v with engine running. Scrolling thru menu I did find this DTC #01 D900 Not sure if this is a fault code of somekind and/or related to yesterday?
  12. Got in car today, turned ignition and got the audio chime (when fuel is low) followed by dash warning "power steering malfunction" message . Turned ignition off and on and no warnings this time? I note from the manual that the 1.8 duratec petrol says no checks are required to power steering I'm guessing its electric system? Drove fine to and from work no issues. Maybe a computer glitch? Will keep an eye on it. Model 2008 facelift 1.8 duratec petrol titanium
  13. Noticed my coolant tank was very low earlier so topped it. But have now found the cause. Is this just a case of a new hose needed? Cheers
