  1. I think it's a good idea as it does no harm and it keeps the manufacturing costs down instead of the expense of having separate wiring.
  2. My socket goes through the ignition unfortunately so I can't use it.
  3. The quickest and easiest way to check if it's the tyres causing the trouble is to swap them over and if it makes no difference then that rules them out.
  4. I don't like additives but modern sealer should be OK as it only sets when it comes into contact with Oxygen in the air. Have you checked inside the car for leakage from the heater matrix.
  5. My Fusion + was a 2008 model and parking sensors were an optional extra fitted in the bumper but they didn't do lane assist.
  6. Have you tried using the manual key, not the remote, it has nothing to do with the battery and should always work.
  7. I live in a large part of town and you get one sign when you enter the area and no more, it's Ok for me I live here but it's awkward for strangers because after driving around for a while they forget as they are not used to 20mph zones.
  8. Does anyone know if there is a way to get speed cameras on sync 3, it's annoying to have to keep using my TomTom now that Fords come with their own built in sat nav.
  9. I like all types of music but I firmly believe that people's driving attitude is affected by the type of music they listen to which is why I tend to avoid heavy music and tend to listen to country music or anything relaxing whilst driving.
  10. When I bought my car I had the autoglym lifetime treatment, I was very sceptical and wary, And I am very impressed with it , worth every penny. as the car keeps clean longer and It makes it easier to clean. I use Meguiars to wash and polish the car because although most polishes are good I find Meguiars is the easiest , I tend to be lazy, as it requires less buffing, just wipe on and wipe off, it also has a good amount of carnauba wax which gives a very deep shine.
  11. Probably caused by the curvature of the windscreen acting a bit like a lens.Does it get better or worse depending on whether the glass is clean or dirty as that can alter the effect.
  12. I tried it once but couldn't find a use for it so I've never used it since, too much trouble.
  13. My Focus runs perfect on Shell V Power, maybe your filling station had a bad batch of fuel, I should try a different filling station and see what happens.
  14. I had a similar problem a couple of years ago and it turned out to be the heater/glow plug relay, it took me two years to trace it as no faults came up and the garage had never come across it before.
  15. when I first tried to fill my car I had the same problem when following the hand book instructions.I found the best way was to put the nozzle all the way in and just jiggle it about a bit and I've had no problem since.
