      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. dab radio not working

    I wouldn't have expected you to have to enter any security code?. I understood the unit was 'keyed' to the VIn of the vehicle automatically. I pulled the fuse on my 2014 TitX at least twice and never had to put in any code. In fact I don't recall ever having any code. My dealer eventually applied the software update and it never failed again, but then again it might not have been that long before it got replaced...
  2. dab radio not working

    Hi, it's a known problem, see this thread pulling the fuse as described in that thread usually brings it back to life.
  3. MK5 Heating Issue / Enquiry

    There was some issues with sensors and a software update was also available , see this thread http://www.talkford.com/community/topic/240361-climate-control-problem/page-1
  4. 2015 Mondeo M-type Fuse

    I get all my servicing done by a small old-style Ford retail dealer. They're very good in that you actually get to talk to the technicians face to face. If I get chance I'll try and have a chat with them about the fuses. In the mean time have you complained/spoken to Ford directly ? A bit more googling found these https://www.elliottelectronicsupply.com/fuses-holders/pal-fuses/micro-mcase-40a-amp-mini-auto-automotive-fuse-6mm-x-10mm-x-15mm-tall.html . They seem to be 15mm tall rather than the 17.5 of the standard MCASE , now all we need is a UK supplier ? what about these https://www.autoelec.com.au/prolec-16-piece-micro2-micro3-mcase-microfuse-fuse ( again not UK ) I think this https://www.pecj.co.jp/fuse/files/PEC_SBFC-M_en.pdf may be the manufacturer rather than LittleFuse. It looks much more like your picture.
  5. 2015 Mondeo M-type Fuse

    Jon, Do the MCASE fuses need to be the 'slotted' type ? See my original link http://www.littelfuse.com/~/media/automotive/datasheets/fuses/passenger-car-and-commercial-vehicle/cartridge-fuses/littelfuse_mcase_plus_datasheet.pdf?utm_source=FordOwnersClub&utm_medium=ForumLinks&utm_campaign=referrals
  6. 2015 Mondeo M-type Fuse

    Jon, That link was for a MY2016 vehicle, maybe the 2015 manual was different. Actually I've just checked online and the 2015 HTML manual does have the MCASE refrenece but the PDF version (which is probably the same as the printed version) just refers to M-Type, go figure! There is no PDF version for 2016 for them to get wrong! Will you let us know if they are the right fuses , others (including me) may need one sometime. I must admit, I thought I carried a pretty good selection of replacement fuses but obviously I don't, since I don't have any M-TYPE/MCASE ones as I didn't know until now that they even existed...
  7. 2015 Mondeo M-type Fuse

    They're not MCASE fuses by any chance ? tech details here http://www.littelfuse.com/~/media/automotive/datasheets/fuses/passenger-car-and-commercial-vehicle/cartridge-fuses/littelfuse_mcase_plus_datasheet.pdf If so , could be available here https://www.arc-components.com/mcase-type-cartridge-fuses.html edit: a little more digging does seem to indicate that they might be MCASE , the Mk5 Mondeo owners manual does mention MCASE fuses in the 'Changing fuses' page http://www.fordservicecontent.com/Ford_Content/vdirsnet/OwnerManual/Home/Content?bookCode=O34731&languageCode=en&marketCode=US&viewTech=IE&chapterTitleSelected=G1519015&subTitleSelected=G1519016&topicHRef=G1549052&div=f&vFilteringEnabled=False
  8. 2.0 diesel grey smoke and smell in cabin

    I did think about that, but I would have thought there would be a MIL or some other warning light on if the regen kept failing...
  9. This post is in response to several people saying the hissing sound is fine when pressing the brake pedal.

    Yesterday, my brakes failed. I first though I'd been using the brakes a little too much so they're hot and fading.  I carried on driving and after a while brakes returned and I thought nothing more of it.  I've experienced brake fade in the past.

    Well, some time had passed and I'd parked up, engine was off and it had been left about an hour to call.  This time something was different.  I have to press the brake pedal before the engine will start on the push button.  It felt spongy.  The pedal went down when the engine started so I knew the servo was ok but I heard a hissing sound that continued to hiss as I kept my foot on the pedal.  Also, if I lifted my foot and applied the brakes again, it would carry on hissing.  I knew something was wrong because it never used to do that.  

    Upon further inspection, I noticed a drop of brake fluid above the brake pedal coming out of the ram on the slave cylinder.

    I looked at the brake fluid level and it is lower.  As brake linings wear, fluid level drops.  However, it wasn't that long ago I paid Dees (Ford in Croydon) to change the fluid as the car is 2 years old.

    I'm going to Dees tomorrow to see what they have to say about the 2 year old car with brake failure!

  10. 2.0 diesel grey smoke and smell in cabin

    Ok , that's way too frequent for a regen. Must be something else.

    How often does this happen ? Sounds like it could be associated with a DPF regen
  12. 14 Plate Titanium X DAB Fault

  13. Ordered it at last.

    @vectra I should watch out when opening that hatch if you park in any underground car park, especially if you're under any supporting beams!. The hatch on my standard Titanium almost hit the roof when open, with that extra spoiler on yours, be careful!
  14. Not too sure TBH . Seems they connect the pressure sensor to the DPF/Exhaust system. I just googled your fault message and that thread came up on the search.
  15. Might be worth checking out this thread on the TalkFord forums http://www.talkford.com/community/topic/195474-eml-code-p2002-diesel-particulate-filter-efficiency/ If you're lucky it might be faulty pipes...
