  1. It isn't being charged at all? Did you reset the BMS after doing all this work? Have you tried unplugging the smart charge on the back of the alternator?
  2. Have you reset the BMS after changing the battery?
  3. Have you had the low oil pressure light come on at all? Has it been serviced on time? And using the correct oil? Any engine flushes carried out?
  4. Yes it has been done, this question get's asked all the time. It's no different than any other "double din" conversion where you fit an adapter to the stereo surround/fascia, a few brackets, and then a wiring harness adapter (search on ebay, they come as a kit). You then fit any double din stereo you want in your price range (Halfords may be a good place to start). They do cost around £300+ for a decent brand such as Pioneer & Sony, but the cheaper ones are utter tosh.
  5. Without knowing what the code is, or anymore information into the fault other than "engine malfunction" (which pretty much most engine problems) then we can only assume the mechanic is correct. Do you have a multimeter to check voltages? If not you either need to get one, or trust the mechanic, or take it elsewhere for a second opinion. No it stores the code so will still show up.
  6. Not if the temperature gauge isn't moving once the car is warmed up. Start with the basics like coolant level, then check the heater control valve.
  7. Who is the remap from? This is the reason I hate "stage" maps. They're completely meaningless as the supporting mods can have a massive impact on how the fueling, timing etc. needs to work.
  8. Have you checked the battery using a multimeter when the engine is running?
  9. It's just a case of changing the fascia and a couple small brackets (Finis: 1547964 x2). You can also just buy a unit with the fascia already, like this one.
  10. I bought this one for around £200 from Eonon. (Octa core processor, 4gb ram, 64gb storage). Then I got this USB DAB antenna and installed DAB-Z from the Play Store. This step is optional, but if you already have DAB then you can also buy an MCX to Fakra adapter and use the existing aerial on the roof (this is what I did). This just means you don't need to stick an aerial on your windscreen.
  11. That depends if its the stereo causing the battery to drain. You may be putting 2+2 together and getting 6. I'd check with a multimeter first. Like most people I doubt you're going to get into component level PCB repair, so it's either find a used on on ebay or go aftermarket.
  12. Usually the lights only flash when you double press the fob to lock.
  13. Check the battery voltages when the engine hasn't run for a few hours, then check it with the engine running and as many electrical accessories on as possible (fan on full, radio switched on, lights etc.). The voltage should be around 14v when you do this, and not drop much when you turn everything on.
  14. Those android units can be very good, however the one you have linked is very low end. 1gb of RAM will struggle with having multiple apps open (such as DAB player, satnav etc.). Also android 6 is quite outdated now.
  15. That's completely useless. You need to read the codes through the obd2 port (preferably Forscan on a laptop with a modified Elm327 lead). The leads are under £20 and Forscan is free. We can't really offer any help you haven't read online without doing this.
  16. You need to read the codes using Forscan and post back. There's not much we can help with until you do that.
  17. Looks like the wind has caught it and blown the door wide open at some point. It makes me laugh how people buy a car and then question if things wrong with it are serious or not 😂. You're supposed to do this before you buy it.
  18. My car started leaking from a similar connection the other day. I just jubilee clipped it for now.
  19. The stop/start and heated windscreen definitely disable themselves if the battery gets low. Didn't know about the adaptive lights.
  20. There will be a fault code. It will be a Ford specific one that needs Forscan (or equivalent) to read it rather than generic code readers. You might need to take a laptop with you and plug it in when the fault happens, it may also reset when you switch the engine off.
  21. I cant comment on the radio crackling, just I retrofitted DAB when I had my mk7.5 fiesta. Just double check the connections on the back are the same.
