  1. Hi My electrical troubles continue!! I havent had a chance to fix my number plate bulbs yet from a previous post but was driving the car tonight and i now hav no intrument cluster lights on my speedo, rev counter, heater knobs etc?? I know these are all linked by the same fuse but checked this 7.5a fuse and is ok. Any ideas whats going on here? Thanks Bryan Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  2. Hi folks. I seem to have a electrical fault where fuse 22 on my 07 fiesta keeps blowing. This results in me having no front left side light and no rear left tail light. I have changed out the fuse four times now and after a day or two the fuse blows. I have checked the earthing points related to this fuse (e4 and e11) and im getting a good contact. About a month ago my wifes can was playing up and i used my car a lot to jump start it (her car is now fixed) not sure if this has caused any issues but thought it might be worth mentioning. Again not sure if this is linked but the motor for adjusting the headlight height inside the front light cluster seems to be operating all on its own as i can hear this when i turn the lights on but without touching the selector (1-4). Hopefully someone can point me in the right direction on this as its only a matter of time before the police pull me over!! Many Thanks for the help. Bryan Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC

    Fiesta Fuse Keeps Blowing

    Hi Troy. Thanks for the info. Will check if the motor runs or not with no fuse. Do u know if there is a way to disconnect these from the circuit? Never use them n thats a cheaper option at the moment as headlight clusters aint cheap! Thanks Bryan Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC

Would be greatful if anyone knows what the issue is and how to fix it. Many thanks Bryan Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC

    Gear Change Issue

    Thanks DieselPig I found another thread where it might be the shift arm on the pivot shaft that need opened up slightly and greased. Apparently this is a common fault with the mk6 fiesta when everything gets warm. Gonna try these suggestions at the wend Thanks Bryan Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  9. Hi guys. Right finally we have fixed my problem. I checked the cable from the back of fuse 33 to the multi connector and no continunity so i have managed to replace this cable which i believed to be broken and hay presto! Number plate lights, hazard switch and instruments all back working again. Phwee that was an electrical nightmare trying to trace wires that are in such tight spaces but i obviously couldnt have done it without all your help guys. Will def be visiting this site again for any issues i hav with my motor. Thanks again Bryan Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  10. Hi folks. Im new to your forum and require some help. I currently drive a 2007 ford fiesta zetec s. Ok.....was driving at night the other day when i was flashed over by another car. He told me i had no brake lights except for the strip under the roof spoiler. So i went and got new bulbs which fix this problem. Happy days! However now both my number plate lights no longer work. I hav been out all day trying to find the reason why, where i have replaced both bulbs, checked the fuse and even replaced some corroded connectors. But still nothing. I then put my multimeter on and there is no power at the bulb connectors i also checked for continunity between both connectors and all good. I did notice when i was replacing the connectors that some of the copper wire strands were blackened (not sure if this tells you anything or not) I have been looking at other threads and cant seem to find a solution and just wondered if anyone has had a similar problem. Any advise would be great as im at a lose. Thanks Bryan
  11. Sorry Chris. Think we posted at the same time. Will try all this tomorrow. Thanks Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  12. I guess i now need to check the wire as it leaves the back of the fuse box which i think travels down to the multi connector. I have finished for tonight as im loosing daylight but thanks for the help and until tomorrow my electrical problem continues! Anymore advice is truely welcome! Thanks guys.

  13. Hi chris. Yeah thats what i have done so this seems to be fine. 12v on one side and nothing on the other. Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  14. I have just checked both sides of the fuse and i get 12v from one but not the other. Should there be 12v from both sides? Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  15. Hi Wase. I have just checked the fuse with side lights on and connected to an earth and getting 12v. I hav disassembled the switch unit and i get 12v with side lights on. Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  16. Ok thanks. Will try this tomorrow after my work and i will keep you posted on my progress. Thanks again for your help. Bryan Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  17. The cables from the number plate connection run down as far as a multi connecter just beside the rear seatbelt anchor - I checked continunity between and all good. The cables then run from the female end of that multi connector down and along the floor of the car to that splice which is near the bonnet latch on the passengers side - checked continunity here and all good. Thinking about it i didnt check for continunity as a fully connected circuit. Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  18. Yes this green light did work before and as for the hazard switch i cant recall if this illuminates or not. I was thinking of purchasing a haynes manual for my car would this be worth getting? Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  19. Hi wase. First off thanks for your input and you time. The question u hav asked im assuming is when u turn on the lights there is a little light symbol on the intrument panel which i believe is green to let the driver know his lights are on. The is NOT coming on when i turn on my lights. Thanks Bryan Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  20. Hi guys. Well i hav spent all today trying to fix this problem with no joy. I started at the boot hinge and all cables were fine. I hav changed all connectors and the black oxidised cables. I also started to trace the cables back to the fuses box were continunity was good throughout. I also found the join where it branches of into two cable one to the module and the other to the fuse box. When i checked this for power, one probe in the fuse and the other at the join im getting 12v? However when i check power from here back to the number plate bulbs nothing?? But i get continunity. I have played/wiggled with all the cables while the car is running n still no sign of a flicker of power to the bulbs. Any ideas guys? There is also a reley above the fuses which i can hear ticking when car is on but stops after a couple of mins when car is off?? Many Thanks Bryan Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  21. Ok thats for all the advise n pointers guys. Really helpful this will be my job for this weekend due to busy work n family life. Will keep u guys posted with my findings n hopefully fixes. Thanks Bryan Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  22. Thanks Wase. Will have a look in that area also. Would u happen to know why my instrument cluster no longer lights up? Are there any other fuses i should be aware of? Thx Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
