    Sync issue

    Sync touch screen (APIM) and Radio (AHU) are on different fuses. Try a reboot of the APIM by pulling fuse F67 which is row 2, fuse 3 on the passenger footwell fuse box. There's a graphical image of the fuse box in the manual if you're not sure.

    bi xenons on my titanium x

    Be careful purchasing off of eBay and Amazon as there are a lot of fakes on there at the present time. I think I went for the Osram Xenarc branded whiter ones. Can't remember the exact name.

    Which SD card for sat nav?

    And you just bumped a very old topic for no reason. Welcome to the forum!

    Regardless of if you gain from it, its still an MOT failure.
  5. You'll probably need to get the DPF cleaned. Lucky for you the car has a cDPF rather than the old style that needed the eloys fluid on that model so that shouldn't be too hard to get done and should carry on working.

    DPF Help / Advice

    The DPF on the 2008 is an absolute nightmare as it uses the eloys fluid so make sure that hasn't run out too after you get the DPF sorted otherwise it'll just block up again very quickly. Plus you've got the 1.6 TDCi, these engines need regular oil changes of about 6000 miles and not the service book's 12500 to keep them in good running order. Learned the hard way with my engine.

    Retrofit reversing camera to Mk4?

    Or don't be a cheapskate and get it fitted from factory. If you're going to go for a brand new car, why void the warranty doing this as that is what you will do?

    EGR valve opinions please

    Good luck with the MOT. Pretty sure they check for these now. I had my EGR replaced on my old 1.6TDCi. They are a pain granted, but if you're doing short journeys this doesn't help them like it doesn't help the DPF on these cars either.

    Autobeam led headlights.

    LED in an reflector headlamp housing is going to be an instant MOT fail and earn you pulling points with which ever plod we have left in the country. The chips will not disperse the light in the same was a halogen bulb and never will. Just because people aren't flashing at you doesn't mean they are OK to use. The output from aftermarket LEDs are going to be no where near that of a proper LED headlight setup out of the factory or a proper bulb.

    focus zetec s 1.5 tdci

    My advice. Don't p*ss about with the exhaust system. You have a DPF and any modification could cause you issues with regeneration and back pressure which in turn cause other nasty issues. Oh and removal of the DPF is illegal.

    FORD Focus Headlight

    Also, the intensity that they already are is per the Europe specification of DRL which is bright enough to compete with the sun. Chances are you could also fail your MOT too for modifying them.

    2012 mk3 titanium x drl wiring

    +1 on this. Trying to figure this out along with how I could wire some lights into my non existent sidelights as rear lights are also LED on my car.

    I also had a problem with my adaptive headlight too. They replaced it under warranty very quickly.

    Contact Ford Customer Relation Centre and open a case up with them. They will work with the dealer and get on their case to solve the problem, and keep on at them also. I get weekly calls from my case handler regarding my Sync 2 issue. 020 3564 4444 - Option 3.
