  2. Focus Dashboard Secret (Trick)

    the fault code is an easy spot. not sure what number in the secuence it is but they show like this..... 0001 that would mean you have one fault code the very next screan will flash between "DTC" and the fault code itself. the code will be 4 digits long. if you post your fault code/codes on here i will tell you what they mean

  4. 2000 Reg Focus Trip Computer Fitting?

    thanks very much, il remove that section of facia to check for conections tomoro, if there actualy there il buy the ghia style facia aswell. when u mentioned the windscreen wash bottle with sensor i guess on the trip computer theres a warning for when its low? would i be good to go without that and just not have a reading for the wash bottle? or would that bugger the whole thing up?

  6. Aa 5* Extended Warranty

    my mother has a 53 reg fiesta 1.4 zetec and she swears by this aa extended cover. be carefull thoughas a lot of thigs you may expect to be covered may not be. i think also for it to be vilid you must not stray from the manafacturers servicing guidelines, if your cars due a service at 20.000 and your service stamp says 21,000 your cover will be void! last winter she had bottom end engine trouble. the full job came to £650 and the AA covered £500 of it
  7. The ghia version of the focus had the trip computer /mpg/range ect iv got the zetec model which doesnt have it. in its place theres a little duket for loose change ect if i purchased a trip computer from ebay out of a 2000 reg focus ghia and removed the duket were it would be located on the ghia model would the wires/connections be sitting around behind for me to install the trip computer? many thanks people
  8. yea i was thinking around about that, the car was my step dads before it was mine. he said the bottom half of the tank seems smaller than the top. i ran the tank from full till bang on half way, cost about £35 to fill back to the top. about 25 litres im i remember rightly. so id guess its a 50 litre tank. just with him saying the bottom halfs saller i was wondering if it could be a 40/45litre tank
