  1. Working all christmas and new year myself but not bad duties so a doddle really. I do look in but don't always log in, I plan to be on more often in the next couple of months.
  2. To all Moderating / Admin staff, members new, old, past, present and yet to come- May I wish all that celebrate it a very Merry Christmas and a suitably enjoyable New Year. Hopefully I'll be more regular in the new year as I endeavour to transit into a new and less demanding career which should afford me more free time.
  3. I've always had dramas at Halfords anyway. Most of them can't count past 10 without removing their shoes & socks. Expecting them to work out 15% is a long stretch. If I'm bored I'll park up at my local store and watch them trying to swap someone's bulbs or wiper blades, always makes me laugh.
  4. I’m after some advice I have a Ford focus on 11 plate I’m having problems I’m not getting no boost its recently had a new turbo new oil pick up new oil DPF clean and I have no cracks or air leaks I’m getting the code P0045 I have also just replaced boost solenoid any other ideas this car is starting to get on my nerves and help would be great 

  5. kuga 2106 titanium sport x no sat nav fitted,can you help as per your kind posts in 2020,many thanks,Peter

  6. The fault code of dtc d900 is not a true trouble code. This code can be displayed on the dashboard, but it is a communication error between the ECM and the dash. It could indicate there is a problem, but to verify that You will need to have the car scanned with an OBD scanner. If the scan comes up with nothing then the code is being displayed by mistake. Turning the car on and off may clear it, but if it keeps coming back then You may need to have the PCM flashed. Don't ignore this, but don't panic over it either. If You get this code but the check engine light is not on then You are almost certainly fine. The key issue would indicate that the key fob needs syncing to the RCL system. The procedure should be listed in your owners manual. If you don't have a manual then it is available online here- https://www.ford.co.uk/owner/my-vehicle/download-your-manual
  7. Definitely go for it. Tbh not as sleek looking as the mk3.5 but the toys and driveability are far more refined.
  8. Hi im Robert just joined to see if anyone has shared any info on possible upgrades/mods to 58 C max Zetec spec I got 1.8 petrol  it would be nice to get usb/bluetooth auto lights/wipers also change the centre console to a titanium one with the actual arm rest and set up but is the handbrake in a diff position or can it be swapped ? thanks 

  9. It's for this kind of thing- Stops unauthorised removal of keys and ensures that any keys removed are traceable to a particular person. We use something very similar for our patrol vehicles.
  10. All sd cards have an embedded Serial number. Fords nav cards have a licence file on them which uses the cards serial as a copy protection, if the file doesn't match the cards serial then the system will reject the nav files. There are ways to pull up the serial from the cloned card and rewrite the licence file but needs Android specific apps. I have done a couple of functioning cards for friends in the past using a laptop and an Android emulator however I think the newer cards now don't copy very well (there maybe extra copy protection hidden somewhere).
  11. It may well be the pump has gone. When my car was in for repairs a few months back the pump had to be replaced under warranty as it packed up. First symptom was an intrrmittent failure to spray and then nothing at all. Sometimes the pump clogs up if you use neat concentrated wash fluid as often rcommended in winter, it's just too thick and will clog or strain pumps as it goes syrupy when sitting in the wash reservoir bottle too long.
  12. Hi,
    PDF tutorials not anymore available?

  13. Aye, I'm in line for promotion and part of the criteria is a degree in criminology. It was put on hold due to covid restrictions but now I can get stuck in again I have some very time critical assignments to complete. Three years of study (mostly in my own time) has been a long hard process but will be worth the efforts.
  14. Hi Guys / Gals I understand that some have had concerns as to my welfare due to my uncustomary silence. Rest assured I am still around and do look in on everything, however my workload has been horribly time consuming as of late. Hopefully i will be back to my usual (annoying) self on the club shortly. Sorry Fellas, you haven't got rid of me yet. Keep on driving and remember to keep the shiny side up.
