      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. Focus Mk1 1.6 Abs Fault

    checked the fluid level and it's fine, the connector looks ok ,the abs and traction lights are on pretty much all the time , the handbrake is not on at the moment but was on yesterday and the day before. i will give the sensors a good clean first and check the conectors then before i look further into it, it has been parked up heavy rain as the car lives outside and it's been pouring down for the last couple of days.
  2. Focus Mk1 1.6 Abs Fault

    hi my wife has a 2001 1.6 mk 1 foucus and the abs light and the traction control light are on, the hand brake light is also on but not all the time, i was driving it today and the lights all when out until i stopped the car and when i started it again there was a buzzing from the abs unit and i could feel it through the brakes. i've checked all the fuses and they are fine, i've heard about faults with the instrument cluster but i'm thinking it sounds more like a sensor fault. is it possible to check the sensors with a multi meter, or can any one recomend a fault code reader or a lead with software for a laptop that would work with my car that is not to expensive, thanks :)
