      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. smax official trouble topic

    Wonder whether there is any known systematic issue with Bluetooth module? After a year and a bit from new, I experienced electronic issues which gradually worsened. Initially, the Bluetooth connection to the phone (HTC Desire if that is of interest) would drop out, with increasing regularity until it didn't work at all. Then I noticed the cruise control dropping out and hanging such that it was neither on nor off. Finally I experienced a fully flat battery. Ford dealer indicated that the fault was just the Bluetooth module, and replaced it, after which the car worked properly again. Now, after another year and a bit, I am experiencing the Bluetooth phone connection dropping in and out a few times per hour on my daily commute ... Obviously I am concerned that there may be a pattern here ...
