      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. Well I got the car back the other day. The garage had to change the instrument cluster( is this the correct English name for all the instruments as speedo, rev counter and what is behind the instrument glass) to get the car working. Not the cheapest of repairs but now the car seems to work fine again.
  2. I have tried the spare key and got the same result. No difference there.
  3. No I have not replaced the battery. The car starts sometimes but when it does not it lights up the instruments as shown in the picture. And sometimes it stops when driving just like you have lost the ignition. But when it drives everything fells like it should.. Any more thoughts about the problem and how to solve it would be appreciated.
  4. This problem has started as a problem once every fourth night and now it has developed to twice a day. When trying to start the car when turning the key in the ignition the warning lights comes on, the small light between fuel and temp gauges starts flashing and the odometer shows just ----- . Nothing happens not even a click. Then when trying half an hour later sometimes the car starts just fine and runs great. But last day the car has started to give me problems when driving. The car shuts down just like someone has removed the key from the ignition and the lights as mentioned above lights up. Today I had to get the car home by towing.. What is the problem? I do not dare to drive it as it won't get me to my destination without problems. When the car runs it runs great but you never know when it will stop..
