      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. I have a fiesta 1.3 mk4 (t reg) which I originally baught to do up as a rally car, but have used as a run about as I have just sold my modded motor, It has run without any issues what so ever for 2 years now but this last week there has been something very wrong with the electrics ) Ok, so when I turn the ignition on i get the oil, handbrake, battery and airbag lights on (im sure there should be more) the digital milometer flashes all 8's breifly then is off, the petrol gauge and speedometer dont move or work ... after a while they will all start working again, the oil and petrol light comes on and then goes off once its started working again. however the radio doesnt always come back on, I have had it working 2 times out of 16, no lights no anything but it will eject, and I have had it working twice and it does deffo work I had only experienced the dash problems after starting up until now as once everything was working it would stay working (excluding the radio which is a sony xplod aftermarket radio) but today everything cut out (apart from the engine ???) at 70 in the 3rd lane of the motorway (scary) so I really need to try and get this sorted but I'll be honest it is pickling me, Any ideas or info much appreciated :)
