      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. Mondeo Driving Me Crazy

    petrol or diesel?
  2. A Question For Focus Mk2 1.8Tdci Owners

    warmed up in about 10mins, sat 1/2 way and never seen it move when using heater etc - don't have it now to check for sure though
  3. Mileage

    I'm getting really annoyed at my estimated fuel at the moment ... it's almost always telling me 0 miles after i've completed about 500 If I fill it up at 0 miles, I can only get about 43ltrs in it ... means there is still about 10ltrs in the tank!! - Still got about 100miles worth left in the tank!! I estimated one day that if I was brave enough to run the car till it ran out, I could get about 620miles out of it based on how many miles I had done and how much fuel I put in ... don't think i'll be trying it any time soon, but why tell me i'm empty at 500miles!!!!
  4. How Does Start/stop Work?

    As mentioned. Make sure the air-con is off Given the weather, you will likely have the heater aimed at the window ... this automatically puts the air con on
  5. How Much To Fix This Damage?

    Given the dent, i'd probably say about £200-£300 at a small local bodyshop - They'd probably suggest repainting the rear quarter so the paintwork doesn't look like a patchwork quilt
  6. Esp Light Stays On Dtc Code #01 A895

    Error A895 could be "Trip Computer Mode Switch Circuit Failure" - See the linked page ... << click me >> The error also seems to show up a lot with error D900 accompanying it (D900 could be 'CAN Communication Bus Fault') - See links -- << click me >> --- << click me >> << Internal site link As is suggested on the last link, it may be worth resetting the codes and see if any return
  7. Can I suggest adding an area just for key code requests, as these are littering the Audio & Electronics area and hiding any useful information
  8. Haynes Manual

    sure is ... << Click Here >>
  9. Connect Clutch Problem

    Hi Pete, If you struggle to get answers here, stick a post on the Transit forum ... the guys there seem to know their stuff http://fordtransit.org/forum/ Stephen
  10. Starting To Hate My Focus!

    Glad it's fixed ... what a set of symptoms!
  11. Starting To Hate My Focus!

    By resolving the issue with the 12v socket, any electrical circuit that may have stopped there could now be making it as far as something using more juice It's a long shot, but at least quick and easy to check
  12. Ford Ka

    Best bet would be a scrap yard. Guy round my way has rows of Ka's - Bit far to travel though
  13. Starting To Hate My Focus!

    as above, the bulb is a dual filament bulb. make sure someone hasn't changed it for a single filament bulb.
  14. 12V Power Plug

    check the fuse
  15. Hi guys, I'd like to fit a mount for my iPod Touch to the car, but can't see where to fit one that won't look too out of place. Can't use the vents now, cause they point the wrong way and i'd rather not have something suctioned to the window, but it may end up that way. I use my iPod as SatNav as well, so somewhere with easy eyeline when driving would be nice, but i'm open to any suggestions, as I would consider a sunction mount for SatNav use and somewhere else for daily use. I have looked at various different mounts, but there is just no good surface I can see to stick something to Cheers, Stephen
  16. Mk3 Focus Iphone / Ipod Mount

    thanks tomo2001 i certainly haven't seen anything that looks better, so that may be the route to go having looked at he fitting instructions, i wasn't sure how good a fit the plastic clip was that mounts to the dash ... is it secure enough?
  17. Stereo Mutes And "phone" Appears On Screen

    I should add that, from the description of the fault, it sounds like the cable that connects to the stereo, rather than the stereo itself, so a new stereo may not help
  18. Stereo Mutes And "phone" Appears On Screen

    Sounds from the description above like it should be fixable. If you are planning to replace the stereo, then your gonna have the old one out anyway, so no harm in looking before you go buying a new one. Would you be confident to attempt to look at it yourself? Out of curiosity, where in the Aberdeen area are you?
  19. Mk3 Focus Iphone / Ipod Mount

    I have looked at them. There are a vast array of mounts available, the issue I am having is trying to find somewhere on car to stick it that doesn't make it look like a cheap out of place add-on and if there is an area, a nice mount that will attach to said area Thanks, though
  20. Cd Changer/radio Removal Tools

    what car do you have and what year?
  21. Urgent Help Needed Ford Maverick

    are you able to put up a picture of the dash and light?
  22. Quick Question Re:1.4 Duratec

    I think that was a typo, he does state initially that it was a 1.4 in the original posts
  23. Really Annoying

    I would suggest this would be the way to go. It's cheaper than paying to take it somewhere to get decoded, so would benefit people who genuinely need help and would probably deter most of the dodgy types. Nothing to stop the users going to another Ford forum and likely getting an answer though
  24. have you checked the fuses for the reverse light issue - not sure what fuse it is, but perhaps someone else can answer that, otherwise just check them all not sure about the knocking noise. thats something that would be hard to diagnose on a forum - do you feel the knock when whatever the noise hits makes contact? - are you able to record the noise and post it on the forum?
