      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. Parking/reverse Sensor

    Hi again, It would appear that the reverse sounder I was checking, turned out to be the alarm horn!!! Hmmm big red face, the sounder for the reverse sensor was not working, I tried a speaker improv and it worked. Massive sense of relief, as my mrs tends to rely upon them. I ordered one for just over £8. Thanks for all your help, you did suggest the sounder this morning.
  2. Parking/reverse Sensor

    Hello again, Just checked all wires looking for an earth and there doesn't appear to be one in the boot area, or underneath. I had the ignition on with the car in reverse while I checked all wires, and discovered the sensors vibrating, which would suggest power supply is reaching them. Just removed sounder and connected it to my bike battery and it worked!!! The only earth would be where the sounder is bolted to the right side bodywork. Hmmm. Gonna bolt the sounder back in and check power supply to the sounder. This is cooking me.
  3. Parking/reverse Sensor

    Hi, Yes mate, all reverse lights work.
  4. Parking/reverse Sensor

    Hi everyone, I've got a 2004 C-Max manual 2.0d, which I love, but I'm having problems with the reverse sensor. The trouble is, it has stopped working, my Mrs usually drives it and she told me recently that she could just about hear the reverse alarm, but of course now it has stopped completely. I have wd40'd all connections, to the sensors, control module etc. The module says Ford on it. Reading other posts, it was mentioned about fuse 84, this has been checked and is fine. Reversing lights all work, and all wiring seems to be in order. Is there a way of checking the sensors? or have I missed something obvious. Just though I'd ask, before I bite the bullet and take it to a robbing thwaite. Help please. Stadsy
