  1. I have to say I'm not sure ... phone a Guide?
  2. This evening updated FordPass to 3.19.0 ... all working fine now.
  3. I have noticed the 'Unable to locate' problem in the last couple of days ... telephoned FordPass and spoke to a Guide, Sarah. She confirmed they are aware of this problem which primarily affects Android users of the app. This will be resolved with the release of a new version of the app (3.19.0) over the course of next week (commencing 5 April). If your phone automatically updates, great. If not, you should should keep an eye out for the updated version.

  5. Barefaced AGEISM!! I feel another Oprah Winfrey interview coming on!!!
  6. Well, I thought I'd check again on this petition now its been running for 10 weeks. Seems to have stalled at just over 7,000 signatures. Touch and go that it will reach the 10,000 signature threshold and frankly there's not a hope in hell it will get to 100,000 signatures. Nothing I've read persuades me to sign. Only hope for those in support seems to be another Boris U-turn. Clearly most of us have the "don't think I'll bother" attitude...😁
  7. Nope ... never did. I can say the mournful moan occurrences became fewer and fewer and I recall stopped completely when the car got to between 70,000 and 80,000 miles. Have now sold it with over 90,000 on the clock.
  8. Interesting. Just tried this in my 2020 Focus. On returning to my car as i engaged gear an amber "No key detected" sign came on the dash (accompanied by the gong sound) but it switched itself off automatically in just a few seconds more. Started down the road and a few seconds later the same sign/gong came on - again this was extinguished automatically after a few seconds. Thereafter nothing. What was interesting was on reaching my destination (back outside my house!!) when I switched off the engine i got another amber message "Restart now or key is needed". I restarted while th
  9. You guys are so kind to respond so v quickly - THANK YOU BOTH! I guess I should have read the ruddy manual!
  10. I have a 2020 Titanium Focus Mk 4. This evening I had to illuminate an area where a friend of mine was doing some work ... leaving the engine running (on private land) I jumped out to help him with something and noticed the nearside foglamp was on. Checked ... foglamps were not switched on. Got into the car to reverse away and my friend told me both foglamps went on although they were still not turned on. Changed to 1st and both foglamps went off. Seems v strange to me. I'll call the dealer but at this time of year I'm unlikely to get an appointment. Anyone any idea what is going
  11. Started with a Standard 10 in 1975 ... moved onto a succession of Minis (all of which I loved), Metros (which I did not enjoy) and then Maestros which I found perfectly comfortable and reliable UNLESS they had a sunroof, in which case the contents of the gutter would often be deposited in one's lap when one went round a corner a bit too fast ... it was most embarrassing to turn up at meetings looking as though one had wet oneself! I eventually tired of British Leyland's offerings and thought I'd look elsewhere. going through a number of Citroen BX's which were comfortable to drive, partic
  12. Right I've had a word with my broker. I explained that the FordPass app included location tracking - she admitted she was unaware of this but told me a check of manufacturer's security items/options made no reference to this app and it was therefore unlikely to fall within the definition of a "security tracker" that she could refer to insurers. I was not able to press my argument because I know so little about the level of security actually provided. Would it be straightforward for a thief (for example) to disconnect my app from the car. She said that if I could let her have specific detai
  13. A v good point that had not occurred to me. My insurance is up for renewal now so I'll ask and let you know the outcome.
  14. Seeing this thread reappear, albeit that it doesn't appear to have remained focussed on the FordPass App, I thought I should come clean and admit that 5 months into owning my Focus Mk4 I do use the FordPass App and find it v useful indeed. Far more comprehensive than I had imagined ... well done, Ford.
  15. I have a manual Focus Titanium 1.0 125ps built in January of this year (bought in June/July) with about 5.5k miles on the clock. Love it ... a delightfully quiet and smooth car to drive, only emitting a pleasing, almost sporty sound when one pushes it. It is not the mild hybrid version but does, I believe, have cylinder deactivation (which my dealer told me I would never notice). To date I have not experienced any vibration at any speed so, having read this thread, I was interested to see if at the specific revs/gears given above I could induce the car to vibrate. At 2,375 revs (or ther
