  1. Hi, Over the last two years of Mot's my car has had to be revved really high and for at least five minutes to pass the emissions test which it does each time.... Its a ford focus 1.6se lx and is not sending any fault codes/drives very well? Last weekend when it passed its last mot the mot tester told me he had to rev it so highly because the rev counter needle wouldnt stay steady enough for him, when i drive its absolutley fine??? All he said was that its really ropey and may just be a sensor? If anyone knows anything about this problem please let me know since my mk1 has done 119k and I hate it when they rev the nuts out of her to pass the mot lol... Cheers for now, Carl
  2. Well I think its the GEM too... Dont suppose you know that if I buy another with the same serial numbers on it will it work with my key fob? Many thanks ;)
  3. Hi, Central locking works when it wants to even after reset and car chimes twice during key fob program but keyfob does not work at all??? Things I've tried.... 1. Installed new key fob battery and re programmed with the (I) to (2) method, Chimes when button on fob is pressed 2. Unplugged central locking unit for an hour 3. checked fuse 63 4. reset central locking through hitting door switch six times fast and opening closing doors before leaving for a minute... This had my central locking working like new but by the morning was messed up again, also still denied my key fob from working.. Need to know, do I need a new central locking unit and can my old key fob be synced with it??? On the brink of taking it to ford so any help would be greatly appreciated ;)
  4. Ford Focus Saloon "key Fob" Problem ;(

    Have also just checked fuse 63 which was absolutly fine??? left the fuse out for an hour and now the central locking works but one of the back doors just stays unlocked lol!!!! Also tried pressing the door switch 6 times to put it into test mode... My key fob buttons and all the door switches are working since the indicater lights flash when i press them ;) Is there anyway to hard reset the central locking unit? Seems I might need a new one maybe?
  5. Hi, Im the owner of one Ford focus 1.6lx saloon on a 2001 plate... Everything was going well until I started to have problems a while ago! Firstly when inside the car every now and then when locking from the inside the passengers door started to not lock when it felt like it, soon after my key fob battery started to die "Less distance" day by day so changed the battery and everything was ok again ;). A week later the range started to drop again to the point i could only get the fob to work by stading at the front of the car???? So I changed the battery for a new one which worked just as badly???? At the end of the week I had to put some timber in the car which hung out of the boot forcing me to drive with the boot slightly open, this in turn seemed to stop the fob from working completely!!! Not sure if thats just a coincidence... So I've tried re-syncing the fob with the car via the 4 turns through 1 to 2 with in 6 seconds with the key in the ignition folowwed by the chirp and it chirps again after I press the key fob buttons but nothing??? Even unplugged the central locking unit for over an hour but still a no no ;(. The central locking works fine via using the key in the door!!! Sorry for the long story, didnt want to leave anything out! If anyone can help I'd greatly appreciate it ;))
