      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. Mk3.5 different headlight options?

    That's normal as what we call side lights are actually "parking lamps" and thus if you switch to these only the car will think you're using them for this reason.
  2. Mk3.5 different headlight options?

    You need to tell the car you have DRLs otherwise they probably won't work. It's an option in the CCC as is with the LED tail lights (but clearly you didn't need to fiddle with that option! @azz899)
  3. DPF Soot Loading FORScan

    Be aware that it will start again as soon as it reaches the right temperature, so trying to get a decent run in sooner or later is recommended as otherwise the load level will keep increasing and if left too long will cause it to not regen at all which means either a damn good clean or a new DPF.
  4. Rear Light question MK3.5

    Do you get just the LED lit up or the bulb too?
  5. No that is the other half or the child lol
  6. Strange plug

    Money save by combining multiple systems onto one plug and loom.....
  7. Upgraded From F5 Map to F6 Map !!!

    Sync 3 doesn't use SD cards for maps.
  8. Strange plug

    I'm wondering being down that low if it has anything to do with adaptive cruise control....
  9. LED DRLs

    It should do the following. Unlock the car - Sidelights/LED will come on. Open the door after unlock - They stay on until you close the door. Turn the car off after a journey - They will switch off with the ignition until you open the door of which they will go off again when you close the door, unless you have auto headlights with the "coming home" or delay turned on where the headlights will stay on too for x amount of seconds after you shut the door. Mine is set at 20 seconds.
  10. DPF Soot Loading FORScan

    That should be more than enough for it to trigger its own regen at some point. I do 60 miles a day mostly A Roads, and sometimes it'll choose to do it just as I get to work. So if I catch it coming off the A303 I'll do high revs between the junction and work and 9 times out of 10 this tends to be enough for it to complete.
  11. That might explain the weird mechanical noises I hear when I've been in the car for a while eating my Maccy D's!
  12. Auto Headlights

    Actually it is a part of the rain sensor on the MK3/3.5.....
  13. Adaptive Lighting Malfunctioning

    Your dealer are idiots. Mine was constantly resetting itself when stationary too, and throwing an error up on the dash. New headlight fixed it, problem solved.
  14. Rear Light question MK3.5

    Focccus and ELMConfig don't work with most of the MK3.5's at present. I think Forscan is your only option atm.
  15. Makes me wonder if they have disabled the shutter completely on my car then because I'm running the latest PCM updates. How could I tell?
