  1. Fault has been cleared. The SKF ABS hub provided by ECP was faulty. After £660ish at Ford, they replaced BOTH rear hubs with THEIR SKF hub units, that came with sensors, as faults had been stored for both sides. Fault cleared and has been for a number of weeks now. Thanks to ALL who read, commented or messaged me for your help.

  3. Have you taken it for a drive? Disconnect battery maybe? (Should clear any fault codes until they come back) Are you sure the sensors are seated correctly and the plug connections aren't corroded? Did you have the codes read, did it point to a specific wheel?
  4. If you type FORD EPC in Google... there's a few websites that'll give you the part numbers with image breakdowns.
  5. Might be corrosion on the plug itself? Have you tried to clean the pins etc? I had that issue with the cornering lights, on one side. I had to fault mind my Xenons, first I moved the bulb to the side that worked, then the ballast... turned out to be a failing bulb.
  6. AND.... The electricity companies are not going to eat the extra costs to improve the network, they've got shareholders and board members to keep happy... So all extra cost gets passed on to everyone else USING the network - Electric car or not. What really annoys me, the EU7 regulations etc being forced upon us, yet the rest of the WORLD, USA, RUSSIA and CHINA to name a few don't give a **** and will keep pumping out the toxic fumes for decades past the point of no return. THEN the environmental and social impacts of mining the minerals required, the disposal of batteries after th
  7. Lol nope, wheel off, bolt in hole drum... pulls off...
  8. It’s drums, so only drums off to replace the hubs. Brakes are mounted separate . 4 bolts hold the hubs in place, can’t be more than 15-30mins each side.
  9. It’s just the rear hubs 😞 they were going to charge the diagnostic (30mins!) but the nice receptionist felt bad with it coming up to Christmas. I was actually online 15 mins prior to order a collection to scrap it.
  10. The only issue I see... probably already covered... but... The Electricity grid... This will need some serious upgrading to cope with the new demand from electric cars. I also question the ability and space to actually charge the vehicle, people living in the new trendy ECO estates, Terraced Houses, FLATs etc... THEN... the costs of the vehicles themselves compared to combustion engined and replacement and mining of the HIGHLY toxic battery components... I honestly see the 2030 slipping to 2050... we don't even have enough social housing to shelter those that need it, I c
  11. I know 😞 Im just ranting... needed to voice over the keyboard 🙂 Ive been a picked up the car, they showed me I know have codes for BOTH rear wheels now. The hub I had fitted at another garage, isn't a genuine part and he said that is likely why the original fault didn't clear and is just as intermittent as before. I asked about the ABS module and he said in his 20+ years with Ford 17 years as a Master Tech, he has NEVER had to replace an ABS module on any car, so thats hopeful. So I grinned, bent over and agreed to have the work done next week when parts are in. They did
  12. Just curious... AFTER the numerous threads Ive posted up on here about the ABS issues I have been having the last few weeks... Replacing the Rear Wheel Bearing, ABS sensor, Wiring Extension, Rotating the Wheels, New Plug... 2 diagnostic sessions and now a MASTER technician session... They have decided that I need to REPLACE BOTH REAR hubs???? AGAIN? Oh.. at a cost of £661!??? Im at the point now where I want them to just replace the module, but they seem to be refusing my request as "They don't think it will make any difference..." Can some one PLEASE recommend me a
  13. Well, ford cancelled on me again, 2 weeks in a row. So its now going in on Wednesday. Ive started to drive with the radio and fans off, now I can hear a "grrr grrr grrrr grrr" noise, for about 10 seconds before the ABS lights etc come on and the brake pedal seems to vibrate.
  14. PLEASE can anyone show me / tell me how I can identify the wiring to the ABS module from the rear wheels - primarily the rear left :) I want to try and run a new loom for testing the connection from start to finish, before I spend more £100's on a car I want to set fire to. ALSO... Ive noticed the drivers side head lamp DRL flickers with the engine running, but doesn't with engine off... the turning light also doesn't work. Are the headlamps and ABS module grounded/earthed to the same connection? Any thoughts or ideas?
  15. I’m starting to think it’s maybe a power / wiring problem - earth? I noticed the abs module is on the drivers side. I have an issue with the drivers headlamp, sometimes the xenon fails to ignite or flickers off. Also the turning light bulb works for a few days, then doesn’t (bulbs fine). The led drl also flickers when the engine is running, but not with ignition off.
