      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. Hello to all, I will apologies now for the long story but any help is gratefully received. Last december my car broke down and i called the AA out who told me the alternator was broken so i rung round and found this garage near who could fit me in at a good price so i went there. Now before all this happened the car was spot on, no problems at all and for a 2000 plate it only had 67k FDSH. When i picked the car up that evening everything seemed fine until the next morning for work, i would pull up at a junction in traffic in neutral and the rev counter would climb to 3k, 4k ,5k to point id have to turn engine off and start it back up again so i took it back to garage and explained this never happened before you had it so whats going on. Eventually it stopped doing it, dont know what it was but now when i open door the inside lights are flickering, when i have anything on light head lights they flicker until i put foot on gas or if i put heaters on windscreen everything dims until i touch accellerator, i may only seem a small problem but on a night now even with foot on gas the headlights are dimming then coming back up to power. None of this happened before and have been told its all alternator related but when i go back to garage who fitted it they tell me the alternator is ok. Also i have just found out that when i push brake pedal the sidelights come on at front, that is a earth wire front battery so i have been told. I have looked at alternator and all i can see is the word AUTOELECTRIC 333182. As i said at beginning, sorry for the long story but this is doing my head in and other than that the car is perfect in everyway. Thank you
