      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. 12V Socket, Possible Low Voltage?

    Fixed it! I changed the fuse for another one and it's now working fine, I also put the original one back in and it went back to its old ways, although the fuse looks fine.
  2. 12V Socket, Possible Low Voltage?

    The charger is rated as drawing 2 amps and the socket is rated at 10 amps, but I'm thinking that its not supplying the proper current for some reason or other. I'll borrow someone elses and see what happens, if that's the same it could be a trip to the garage.
  3. 12V Socket, Possible Low Voltage?

    I've now tested the voltage in the socket and it reads 12.4v so that's fine, the charger works fine in other cars so I might look to replace the actual socket, does it just pull out or will I need to remove some trim from the console. Its just the normal 12v socket type, not cigarette lighter.
  4. 12V Socket, Possible Low Voltage?

    I've been out and bent the tabs out, it's made no difference, I'll see if I can borrow a test meter from a friend during the week and go from there.
  5. I have a 2006 Focus Titanium, the problem I have is that the 12v power socket doesn't seem to be supplying the full voltage, I have a brodit phone charger that charges fine in other cars but doesn't charge in my car. There is an power light on the charger which when plugged into my car flickers, but lights up fully in others. I've only just found this out and it's a bit dark to check the fuse at the moment, but seeing as there is some power there I wouldn't think it would be that.
  6. Hi To All

    Hi all, new to the forum as I've just bought a 2006 Focus 2.0 TDCI Titanium, very impressed so far, especially with the fuel consumption as I've come from a V6 2.4 petrol Audi A4 :)
