  1. So last Monday I got my 2012 Focus 1.6 titanium back from the MOT the only issue, being one tyre needed replacing. I'm then got a warning about tyre pressure and so checked them but they all seemed OK and later on the warning went. The following day ’steering assist malfunction service required’ came on, and Imjust managed to drive home. Following a restart the message cleared. Yesterday it returned again at almost the same point in my journey home but this time will not clear with a restart. There's no way, I could drive into work, my local Ford dealer can't see it until Friday. A few weeks ago Halfords replaced the battery to one of own brands. If I put the car into test mode the output voltage is showing around 14.3. Is this a case of the known issue and the steering rack/sensor will need replacing? I've tried disconnecting one side of the battery to see if it would clear it but no. Anything else to try? My mileage is 65000

    Help with fault codes

    After receiving excellent recommendations on here for the code reader I ran Forscan this morning. Bit of history with my fault, about 2 weeks ago my orange engine light came on and so I booked my car in for it's due service and to have this investigated. 3 days prior to the service which took place on Monday the light went out and so I just said could they service the car, I picked the car up on Monday evening and the light was back on. Rang the Ford dealer on the way home who said to how it goes over the next few days. The following day the light started blinking so I phoned Ford again and the earliest they could book the car in with a courtesy car is next Monday, I asked if it was safe to drive they said yes. The car was stuttering a little and a noise a sound coming from the rear of the car. Based on the report below I'm now concerned the catalytic converter may have been damaged? A quick Google search suggests a new Ignition coil pack may be needed to correct the engine misfire? If the catalytic converter was damaged would it come up in Forscan? Anything else to worry about in this report? Thanks in advance. ===PCM DTC P0302:92-EC=== Code: P0302 - Cylinder 2 Misfire Detected Additional Fault Symptom: - Performance Or Incorrect Operation Status: - DTC Maturing - Intermittent at Time of Request - Malfunction Indicator Lamp is On for this DTC - Test not complete Module: Powertrain Control Module Freeze Frame : -GLOBTIM: 354235023 sec - Global real time -DIST_TOT_VEH: 10791937.0 km - Total Vehicle Distance -MAINECUV: 15.00 Volt - Main ECU voltage supply -INCARTMP: 23 °C - In car temperature -OUTTMP: 7 °C - External Temperature From Sensor -PWR_MODE_KEY: Running - Power Mode Key State -FUELSYS: Open Loop - Fuel System Status (Open/Closed Loop) -LOAD: 34.12 % - Calculated Load Value -ECT: 13 °C - Engine coolant temperature -SHRTFT1: 0.00 % - Short term fuel trim 1 -LONGFT1: -0.78 % - Long term fuel trim 1 -SHRTFT2: 0.00 % - Short term fuel trim 2 -LONGFT2: -0.78 % - Long term fuel trim 2 -RPM: 1200 rev/min - Engine Revolutions Per Minute -VSS: 0.0 km/h - Vehicle Speed -SPARKADV: 8.50 ° - Spark Advance -IAT: 7 °C - Intake Air Temperature -MAF: 5.28 g/sec - Mass Air Flow -TP: 15.29 % - Throttle Position -FLI: 30.20 % - Fuel Level -APP_D: 14.90 % - Accelerator Pedal Position D -APP_E: 15.29 % - Accelerator Pedal Position E ===END PCM DTC P0302:92-EC=== ===OBDII DTC P0302-C=== Code: P0302 - Cylinder 2 Misfire Detected Status: - Confirmed - malfunction is confirmed Module: On Board Diagnostic II ===END OBDII DTC P0302-C=== ===SASM DTC None=== Successful DTC reading, no error codes found Module: Steering Angle Sensor Module ===END SASM DTC None=== ===ABS DTC U0151:00-60=== Code: U0151 - Lost Communication With Restraints Control Module Status: - Malfunction Indicator Lamp is Off for this DTC - Test not complete Module: Antilock braking system Freeze Frame : -GLOBTIM: 241211399 sec - Global real time -TOTDIST: 106304.0 km - Total Distance -MAINECUV: 14.50 Volt - Main ECU voltage supply -OUTTMP: 23 °C - External Temperature From Sensor ===END ABS DTC U0151:00-60=== ===RCM DTC None=== Successful DTC reading, no error codes found Module: Restraint Control Module ===END RCM DTC None=== ===PAM DTC None=== Successful DTC reading, no error codes found Module: Parking Aid Module ===END PAM DTC None=== ===PSCM DTC None=== Successful DTC reading, no error codes found Module: Power Steering Control Module ===END PSCM DTC None=== ===BCMii DTC None=== Successful DTC reading, no error codes found Module: Body Control Module ===END BCMii DTC None=== ===FCDIM DTC U0155:00-0C=== Code: U0155 - Lost Communication With Instrument Panel Cluster (IPC) Control Module Status: - DTC Maturing - Intermittent at Time of Request - Malfunction Indicator Lamp is Off for this DTC Module: Front Control/Display Interface Module ===END FCDIM DTC U0155:00-0C=== ===SRM DTC None=== Successful DTC reading, no error codes found Module: Speech Recognition Module ===END SRM DTC None=== ===PDM DTC None=== Successful DTC reading, no error codes found Module: Passengers Door Control Unit ===END PDM DTC None=== ===DDM DTC B12DD:54-2F=== Code: B12DD - Rear Window Motion/Position Sensor Additional Fault Symptom: - Missing Calibration Status: - DTC Present at Time of Request - Malfunction Indicator Lamp is Off for this DTC Module: Drivers Door Module Freeze Frame : -GLOBTIM: 244586739 sec - Global real time -TOTDIST: 108572.0 km - Total Distance -MAINECUV: 14.50 Volt - Main ECU voltage supply -INCARTMP: 23 °C - In car temperature -OUTTMP: 23 °C - External Temperature From Sensor -DLA_SED_DD07_BY_1_PID: error - DL_SED_DD07_BY_1_PID ===END DDM DTC B12DD:54-2F=== ===HVAC DTC None=== Successful DTC reading, no error codes found Module: Heating Ventilation Air Conditioning ===END HVAC DTC None=== ===RFA DTC None=== Successful DTC reading, no error codes found Module: Remote Function Actuator ===END RFA DTC None=== ===ACM DTC None=== Successful DTC reading, no error codes found Module: Audio Control Module ===END ACM DTC None=== ===IPC DTC None=== Successful DTC reading, no error codes found Module: Instrument Panel Control Module ===END IPC DTC None===

    Fault code readers

    I recently posted a thread about my orange engine symbol coming on and the car was booked into the Ford main dealer on Monday for a service and to look at the code. However, 2 days prior the symbol went off so I just asked them to service the car. Surprise, surprise when I picked the car up the symbol was back on. The only other symptom I’m noticing is when at a stand still the csr is juddering slighltly ( I was hoping the service may have corrected this). When I put the car into diagnostic mode no coes show. Anyway, if I buy my own wireless code reader to use with the Android app and obtai; the code would the Ford dealer take the code from me and investigate or still need to connect it up and charge the excessive charge? Can anyone recommend a good cheap one and is it easy to connect? I want the device to prevent getting ripped off by Fast rd each time not for me to attempt the repairs. Thanks in advance.

    So my card reader arrived today from tunnel rat, excellent fast delivery. I went for the wireless version in the end and will download the free Forscan Windows software tonight? Is there anything that needs configuring within the software or should it just work as default? Thanks

    Took the plunge and ordered one today from tunnel rat and it’s been dispatched. Could this be a fault with the catalytic converter? Car is juddering a little when standing still and there is a noise coming from the rear of the car. Any other tests I can perform without the reader? How long is the Ford warranty on such parts?

    Hi Martyn, might have to take you up on your kind offer. I actually work in Northwich so not that far away.

    What about Ford still needing to read the code themselves? Saw this Bluetooth adapter which looks like a bargain with lots f great reviews. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Torque-Pro-Elm-327-Bluetooth/dp/B01AC7I7BO/ref=pd_lpo_vtph_263_lp_t_3?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=8R5WSJT12BC4D8N5JR57 Laptop cable seems expensive in comparison - https://www.amazon.co.uk/ELMconfig-500kbit-compatible-interface-diagnostics/dp/B01F0GVBWY
  13. Well following on from having my steering rack replaced towards the end of last uear the above light is now permanently on my dashboard. Any ideas? I've booked the car in at Ford for next available date 7/1. It's a 1.6 120 bhp engine Thanks in advance.

    Dreaded mk3 steering assist issue

    Well car went back to the dealer at the weekend and the rack was checked etc still making a creaking noise though, especially when going slow and reversing and wheel turning a full circle. Total bill from Ford £786

    Dreaded mk3 steering assist issue

    So I had the rack replaced and I was offered 2 different racks by the Ford garage, an original Ford one or a cheaper 3rd party one which they said they use a lot. I opted for the cheaper one, I've had the car back a week and noticed a creaking noise at the front of the car moving from stationery. Is this to be expected from the new rack? The only other thing I've had done is 3 tyres replaced on Sunday by tyres on the drive and to be honest Monday was the first time I had no music on and really noticed the noise.

    Cant get into Focus

    Following on from my earlier thread about the mobile phone battery icon and mobile signal not showing on the left hand screen. I successfully updated the software last night using a usb stick and the icons were present and locked the car using the fob. Came out to go to work this morning and my car would not open using the fob or the manual key underneath the top cover any ideas? Does the manual key not work if the battery is completely dead etc? 2nd fob is the same.

    I've checked now with different phones (Android & Iphone) and the battery icon and signal strength flashes in light grey and then disappears. Is there something that needs changing on the Sony stereo settings? It's a 1.6 125ps Titanmium early 2012

    New Focus Titanium - Help

    Just picked up my Focus 2012 125 model Htc M8 Andoid phone paired via Bluetooth. I can receive calls and see the address book etc, however when I use the voice control and say phone it recognises it but when saying call Joe Bloggs it says something like command something and stops. It doesn't matter what name I say it still fails. However selecting from the address book using the buttons works fine

    Do you have to store all the numbers and record their names first? This it where it plays your actual voice backdating the name and then record the number. Or should I should be able to say dial any name in my address book?
