      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. 2005 Ford Focus Power Drain

    Thanks for the replies everyone. Gives me some other things to have a look at :) Removing the relay may be the first option, can anyone point in the right direction as to where it is/looks like? Also it maybe worth noting that it doesn't necessarily require charging everyday, can last a few on its own but I don't want to take any chances Cheers Chris

    Thanks for the reply steads. Already checked that, sorry. Also wire-brushed and checked the earth straps. It's a real mystery. Cheers Chris
  3. Hello Everyone, Have a problem with my Focus in that I near enough have to charge it every night so that I can ensure it starts again in the morning. The model is a 2005 Ford Focus 2.0TDCI Ghia. I've taken it to the garage a few times now and they have ran a diagnostic test on it which didn't find anything. I've also had 2 new batteries (one renewed under warranty just in case I had 2 duff ones on the trot) and it's had a new alternator of which both haven't solved the problem. It's a real pain as you can imagine and a real shame as it's a cracking car otherwise. Would really appreciate if anyone had any other ideas/solutions or knows of anyone else with the issue? Cheers Chris
