    Could be a duff battery , how old is it, if it's the original it's wel due a change, assuming your talking about the car in your profile.

    A couple of extra psi in your tyres helps I used to run at 40 all round that was on 235/45/17"

    Weird Windsceen Washer Problem

    A quick fix to try is empty as much fluid out of the bottle as you can, then fill using hot not boiling water and run your washers, this often but not always clears out the sludge in the system, cheap easy and worth a try.

    Ford pass 2?

    It doesn't on mine either, also it's hard to navigate round it on an iPhone if you change pages you have to shut the app down to get back to the start

    Mondeo mk3 tdci MPG

    A remap can give you 5 mpg more I've used super chips in the past with good effect, the bluefin version is a home install via the OBD port and has the advantage of you being able to remove the mapping at any time great if you are trying to find a fault

    Phone pairing problem

    Have a look here for compatibility, I can't see why it should be any different to a Mondeo of the same age I never had a problem pairing Samsung's to my cars https://secure.ford.co.uk/OwnerServices/SYNC-and-Bluetooth-Support/MobileCompatibility

    Your key will need to be paired to the car again, instructions are in the handbook.
  13. I take it you mean it over responds to the throttle when not in gear, if it's doing it in gear and driving then it has to be the clutch

    Can anyone recommend an OBD reader

    If you have a lap top then Forscan is what you need. It's a dedicate ford system. free download and the you need a modified ELM connector a unmodified one can't read all the codes. download here http://www.forscan.org/download.html Elm connector https://tunnelrat-electronics.fwscart.com/USB_Modified_ELM327/p4541936_17045457.aspx tunnelrat are the best Elm I have come across plenty of cheap copies out there but don't buy they fail. Also FORScan has a support forum
