      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. Dilemma

    I'm struggling with a dilemma: Disable Battery Monitoring, or not? My previous battery died early (2 years): reason was a capacitance problem. Because of the relatively short distances we drove the battery probably never got fully charged. At the dealer I have a capacity measurement done after a charging cycle (with professional charger) and this gave barely 40%. Advised to place a new battery. The new EFB battery (no AGM!) Keeps it good until now. But I have my reservations about the BMS. According to Dan, here on the forum, the generator / dynamo always loads at full capacity when it is switched off. Given the distances we do, a good thing probably, but if we do longer distances, does that cause any problems? Perhaps danger of over-loading? In the past, the alternator was equipped with a 'regulator', so that there was never any danger of over-loading. Do the alternators now used with the BMS also have such a regulator? The reason I am asking this is that disabling the BMS indirectly provides an advantage for me in any way: the Start-Stop system does not work and I want to keep it that way. You can also just 'switch off' with the switch, but I just hate that, pushing that button at every start.
  2. forscan license

  3. forscan license

    I've bought me an ELM327 & installed Forscan on the laptop. Seems to be that you need a license (standard/extended) to use forscan. How & where can I buy a license?
  4. The injectors of a 150 hp and 180 hp tdci are the same, we know. But are they the same in the 210 hp? Can someone check that? I have the following here: 28388960, 0114EK31F42,9674984080, T6YXLZAHJN0 and YG7RBSYYX. These are the number series on a 180 hp and the 1st and 3rd series are also on an injector of a 150 hp. What do the grade / letter series want to say? Does anyone know that by chance?
  5. The mondeo has had a re-map : 225hp/485Nm...Time for a testdrive...made a long drive on hilly and also flat highway. First 'normal' driving and then just accelerated. I must say that the throttle response is accurate and direct. Just played along with the 'big' guys (Audi Q7, mercedes .... audi quattro) and then really tested ... accelerator and drive. Acceleration is amazing, enough power present. Top speed = 150 mph I am a very happy guy
  6. StartStop stopped working

    indeed, be sure of the fact that your battery is (very) weak I've had it, new batt and all well
