      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. 1.3 1996 Cabaret - Accelerator Stiff Problem

    Thank you so much for your words of advice, much appreciated. I have managed to source an accelerator cable (after approximately 35 phone calls lol). I have also booked an auto electrician to come and look at it tomorrow, as I have no idea how to reset the ECU, to see if it could possibly be the ECU. Here's hoping the replacement cable and/or an ECU reset resolves the problem. I shall let you know how I get on.
  2. Hi, I love my car so much and it is in pristine condition with genuine 44,000 miles on the clock from new. I recently left a blanket on my engine (because I didn't want it to get cold) I obviously forgot to remove it and subsequently a few things have melted on the engine. :o The only problem I am experiencing is the accelerator pedal has gone hard and I am unsure as to whether the accelerator cable has melted or it has gone into limp home mode, ie causing the ECU to kick in, although it is idling at 2,000rpm, average speed max is 5mph. Any help you guys could help me with would be much appreciated. Thank you
