      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. Alternator light on but alternator ok?

    often the alternator is still at fault even when it is still charging ok. I have found when a wire brakes is will not charge at all.
  2. Mk7.5 Retrofit OEM park sensors - Can it be done?

    The switch is used to turn all sensors and camera on / off when front sensors are fitted . Body computer needs reconfig with FORSCAN I would think a car with rear sensors has a good chance of front sensor plug but low chance of rear plug if the car did not have rear sensors. These cables could be added to your loom but not such a easy job then.
  3. Low Coolant Warning Project questions

    Only when the sensor is in WATER not when the coolant level is low and the sensor is then measuring AIR temp !
  4. Low Coolant Warning Project questions

    The problem with the temp sensor is that it monitors the water temp by being in the water .When water is lost this sensor is now in AIR so the tem displayed will drop but the engine is cooking !. The sensor is on the thermostat housing block on the battery side of the engine. The later engines have two sensors one on the cylinder head but the best way is to monitor coolant level as if low you know the temp will only rise.
  5. Ford Sync Updates

    I have now loaded the Russian version and has loaded ok. All seams to work so far so not sure what has changed but now displays version 5.11
  6. Ford Sync Updates

    yes I have the same problem .....and make sure files are in the root directory of which they were. I have updater from 5.8 to version 5.9 and worked ok last time. I am not sure why it can not find the file this time. I am not using the same usb stick as last time but they are both in fat32 format

  11. Low Coolant Warning Project questions

    Very good work but I think my system has proved a perfect solution for the coolant low warning and has now been working for months with no problems. , Your system will have other options for more complex projects but for this coolant warning topic is too complex for what is required. well done for your can bus hacking !
  12. Looking for a reversing camera adaptor

    you will not have any tailgate wiring for the camera or cables to the front display. I replaced the tailgate trim from another car and had the trim sprayed.. You can not just swap the camera as the camera and the boot release button are not in the same place. I fitted the oem camera and trim in my 2013 titanium x
  13. 2013 1.0l Ecoboost engine rust. Problem?

    I have cleaned and painted mine in silver with direct to rust and after a long trip up and down a motorway and the paint is so far perfect so I am sure it will be ok as water is flowing in these pipes all the time.
  14. Spotify Integration ford SYNC

    I have just done a reset on the audio unit with forscan and a master reset of the sync module from the front display. I then added my phone and tested the system with spotify. I have only just started the testing but looks like this may have solved the problem. The phone used must always have BT turned on and be inside the car when you start up and so far always comes on with spotify If the car is switched on with NO phone or BT off and Spotify not found you will then need to search for the app again but I do not see this a problem as I always have my phone. I do not know if the audio unit required a reset and expect the sync master reset was the main reason. I reset both as I have added many extras like snnc 1.1 and navigation and camera so I also done a reset on the body control module. I will update you to let you know how it goes but looks good so far.
  15. Spotify Integration ford SYNC

    mine does the same with Spotify but sometimes it will work with no problem but often have to search apps again. I wondered if its a power saving thing in my phone but not had time to test it yet . I have a Samsung s7 edge phone
