  1. Hi Guys Looking for info on the above error code I know its more or less related to the mass airflow sensor but before I look to replace it I want to be sure. The code pops up now and again and isn't constant can go a week without seeing it and then once a day for a few days. I would have thought if it was the sensor then it would be constant rather than now and again. I have cleaned it with electrical contact cleaner (WD40 Stuff) then some isopropanol afterwards and it did seem to sort it for a while. What I am looking to find out is there anything else I should be doing to clean the sensor before replacing it (As in leaving it in isopropanol overnight or something else) before biting the bullet and getting a new sensor. Car is a Mondeo 2009 2.2 titanium x 94,000 miles ish. Cheers in advance
  2. With mines it was reprogrammed 2 times before it was replaced First time got it done locally and it solved the problem Second time it gave the steering message thankfully I was close to the garage that eventually did the work and they programmed it and told if it happened again replace it so that's what was done when it went again Dunno if its worth getting it reprogrammed as that only cosy me about £70 for it short term fix that might stick and solve it for you but with mines it didn't make any difference and had to do the sensor
  3. Pretty sure that was the part that was replaced Basically said it was a sensor for the key-less remote and because it wasn't getting the signal to start the unlock process the car and remove the steering lock etc so it was pretty much dead £400 is more than I paid for it to be done mine you it was about £350 for mines in a ford garage (AA transported it 100 miles to it mind you because of where I live (Far north of Scotland) but the problem you have is the car is dead so you cant exactly shop around etc Its a sore one to take mate but since mines was done I've not had any problems with it so far touch wood
  4. Cheers for the replys still waiting to get under the car but dont fancy getting drowned at the moment ;)
  5. Looking for some advice. Had a van go into the back of me at a junction and the parking sensors would stop working now and again with a loud beeping and the button on the dash flashing. This happened a few times and the guy agreed to replace the rear sensors. Once they were replaced at the ford garage I use it initially fixed the problem but now it happens every time I use reverse. I have switched back to the old sensors and it’s not made any difference. What I am not sure of is that the sensors are they simple swap out to replace them or do they have to be programed in? I noticed the item numbers for the old and new ones are different but that might not make any difference. Failing that anyone have any suggestions or advise before I go back to the garage with this one. Cheers ScoobieDoo
  6. Hi Mate Mines turned out to be a sensor to do with the keyless entry I was getting the steering error message and then not long after it the car just cut out and wouldnt even turn over powered up but nothing worked and wouldnt start Said that the sensor was part of a system that alows the car to start and because the sensor was broke it wouldnt alow it to go any further This happened a few times and was reprogrammed before they advised me to replace it (About £350 ish) Since its been replaced to be fair I have had no issues
  7. Hi Looking for some info with my 09 Mondeo I Noticed the other day when driving that the tabs on the hud console disappeared leaving just the radio greyed out and the settings and trip options available left it as it was as I had to go into work and when I checked it later all was well this has happened again since but not for a few days Now when I was on the car tonight I got an error message on the console steering malfunction got home and switched off and back on again started fine same error message Disconnected the battery and left it off for about half an hour and then connected it back up car powers up when unlocking and still gives the error steering malfunction but now will no longer start It’s a key less entry and I have tried the other key and also sticking the key in the blanked off slot where a normal key goes and still the car won’t start doesn't give me the press clutch message that normally comes on before starting Had a look at the fuses for the key less and steering lock and they look ok and tried the battery again and still nothing Any ideas or suggestions before I book it in to get looked at and potentially cost me a fortune Cheers ScoobieDoo
