      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. Headlight problem

    Sounds like you need a relay change. The MK1 uses H4 bulbs the MK1.5 uses H7 and H1 bulbs thus no need for the relay.
  2. Titanium X HELP - Dashboard Dial Light OFF

    Yep it won't cost a thing as long as its not been done maliciously. I've had mine go back inexcess of 10 times in 3 years for work.
  3. Titanium X HELP - Dashboard Dial Light OFF

    Did you follow my advice above and take it back to Ford for a software update? You've got just over a month before the warranty runs out. This is an issue with the cluster. Potentially just a software update will fix it but could mean a new set of clocks.
  4. MK3.5 - Auto lock and horn when locking

    Have you ever been to Walmart in the states? It's toot heaven as I think most cars out there do it. I'd love to have this feature too but I'm sure at 2am when I get back from a gig my neighbours probably wouldn't appreciate this, plus actually after 11:30 it is illegal to toot your horn without good reason I believe.
  5. Service message re-set.

    Are you getting a "Service Now" message or an "oil change required" message? The two have completely different meanings.
  6. Can a Focus open/close in 'dark state'

    The BCM controls most of the car's features, you're likely to cause upset by doing that.
  7. parking sensors and rain

    I've recently had one of my front ones going red in slow traffic. Seems to have stopped again now though. What I do find interesting is that other cars with similar systems can set them off from quite a distance. I was next to someone with a merc and both of our screens lit up with red sensor warnings at the same time yet we were far enough apart that typically the sensors wouldn't normally pick something up.
  8. Question for Mk3 (2011-2014) owners

    That is what a forum is for and how you use it. What you have posted is completely off topic and completely irrelevant to the thread and conversation in hand. Either use the search to see if any other posts or topics exist in relation to your questions or start a new topic so that it is easier to find later for other people who have similar questions to you.
  9. Question for Mk3 (2011-2014) owners

    Please start a new topic not gatecrash another one :)
  10. Question for Mk3 (2011-2014) owners

    If the engine is out of gear and handbrake off and it starts to move when in stopped mode it detects the movement and will start the engine again.
  11. Active city stop - anyone tested?

    I do the speed limit. Nout wrong with that.
  12. Adaptive cruise control

    Wish I had that on my Tit X. Might retro fit it now I'm out of warranty.
  13. Focus MK3 screen washer pathetic!!

    I've been using Halfraud's £4.50 5L berry screen wash since I bought mine. Never had an issues, even in the cold weather.
  14. Has your 1.5tdci gone wrong?

    I'm almost on 60,000 miles with mine. Only issue I've had is a possible semi-blocked fuel filter at around 25,000 miles. There was a recall on the cam sprocket which I've had done other than that no issues touch wood. Been an absolute joy of an engine. Mine's 3 years old as of a couple of weeks ago.
  15. Active city stop - anyone tested?

    I've triggered mine twice. Once coming towards a bush a little too quickly and the other when a taxi decided to turn right as I was coming across the junction. Second time I managed to drive through that and carry on without coming to a stop as the taxi had moved out of my way pretty quickly. The number of people that ride my bumper behind, I pray it kicks in one day as much as I don't want my car ruined it might teach them a lesson.
  16. Sync 2 Reset

    Please start a new thread as your problem is not related to Sync 2.
  17. Maps update

    F is the reference code for the region I guess. The american's SD cards and Sync 3 maps are A if my memory serves me correctly.
  18. Sync 2 Reset

    It does a reboot and maintenance occasionally when the car is off.
  19. HODGE

    DRLs are an optional extra unless Titanium X. The original Ford spec in the image above bears no relevance to your car nor the original advert for the car as everything can be customised. Without seeing the advert we can't see if you have a case. As regards "Tungsten" DRLs... These are not a feature on the current models of Focus.
  20. Sync mouse mat?

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Traffic_message_channel Traffic Message Channel. The data is sent from radio stations, primarily Classic FM. ** The INRIX[65] provides a commercial TMC service, iTMC in the United Kingdom. It is broadcast nationally on Classic FM and other commercial radio stations. The BBC charter prohibits it from carrying a commercial service. ITIS provides traffic data on RDS-TMC to major automotive companies (BMW, Mercedes, Toyota, Ford, Renault, Jaguar Land Rover and others). The price of the service is included in the price of the car or navigation system. This system uses Floating Vehicle Data, which include positional information from over 160,000 fleet vehicles fitted. The data is complemented by journalistic or "Incident" data provided by Trafficlink. Trafficlink is owned by ITIS and provides traffic and travel bulletins to BBC Radio and to over 95% of the UK commercial radio stations. Incident data includes road works, accidents and closures. Trafficmaster, a Teletrac Navman brand, operates a national service using local and regional radio broadcaster Global Radio to ensure reception across mainland Britain. This system uses road-side infrastructure to measure vehicle travel time between sensors placed a few miles apart, and uses number plate recognition technology. Data sources used by Teletrac Navman include Floating Vehicle data from fitted telematics devices, 8500 under-road inductance loops, over 1800 CCTV cameras, Congestion Zone charging cameras, Police control rooms plus a proprietary network of ANPR and IR sensors cameras across the road network. Teletrac Navman provide traffic data on RDS-TMC to major automotive OEM brands including VW, Audi, Skoda, Mazda, Chrysler, Honda, Seat and Vauxhall. Teletrac Navman also supply the Department for Transport with historical traffic data for modelling purposes which is used by central and local governments and their sub-contractors when analyzing road network improvement opportunities. Both services maintain their own location tables. The current location table version of ITIS is 5.1. The current location table version of Trafficmaster is 3.1.[citation needed]
  21. Sync mouse mat?

    Not on Sync 2 no. Its using TMC.
  22. Sync mouse mat?

    Fyi, connecting your Sync 2 to your phone wifi is totally pointless unless you plan on using Sync 2 as a wifi repeater. There are no functions available that require an internet connection on Sync 2 as far as I know.
  23. Anyone actually managed to update Sync 1.1

    It's using linux to stop fiddly fingers.... The SD Card has some form of copy protection on it but using a Linux based operating system will not prevent copying.
