  1. Recently we bought a second mondeo for my wife. It came with the standard flat key, however my wife would like the flip keys for her car. I have seen on line people selling second hand keys (previously cut) with all the electrics inside. Also people selling replacement uncut key shells (no electrics). Am I right in thinking that I could buy 2 second hand keys, 2 uncut shells. Get the uncut shells cut and swap the electrics into the newly cut shells. and move the small transponder chip (the one in the small glass vile) from the existing key into the new shell and reprogram in the the car. to end up with 2 flip keys that will work.

    I was having a problem on cold mornings when there was frost, an traced it to a krackerd battery which has now been replaced and everything starts ok.
  4. I am repeatedly getting a code P0380 on my fault code reader but I am not getting any other warnings such as the engine malfunction light. the car appears to be running well. Should I be worried?If i should, where should I start? It is a MK4 mondeo 1.8 tdci with approx 112000 on the clock.
  5. Sorry Stoney, didn't know it was against the rules.
  6. I have a new battery to fit on my 2007 Mondeo, but can I find my Radio Code.....NO...NO...NO.... Is there anyone on the forum who can get Ford Radio Codes as my local dealer wants £20 to look it up on their system. Can anyone help?

    Automatic Boot Opening

    I saw the spec for the springs further up the thread. Is this spec sufficient to lift a tailgate with a fitted spoiler or dose it need a different spring and gas strut combination? I have 2 Mondeos that I would like to modify one a Titanium Xand one a Zetec, both fitted with the standard ford spoiler.

    Puzzled by Key Programming

    Thanks for that, sorted now. A second question you might be able to help me with is........ when I press and hold the open button all the windows open, However when I hold the lock button only the rear windows close, not the front.ones. How do I fix this?
  9. Just got her ladyship a 2lt 2008 Zetec. It came with 2 keys. however 1 would not unlock it remotely. so I changed the battery and still not working....... I watched a few videos on Youtube on key programing........ I went and sat in the car with both keys (opened it with the one that works) did the 4 turns of the key until it beeped then pressed a button on the key. after that the key that didn't work before now worked, the one that did work now doesn't....... Where did I go wrong.....

    Titanium X Rear Power Socket

    Finally got a chance to try to fit the power socket, pilled out the carpet like panel on both sides but could not find the orange wire. found the reverse park module and followed the wiring loom back but could not find it. is there another live wire there that I could use?
  11. I know that when I fitted parking sensors to my previous cars I would install a switch to activate the front sensors as I didn't like them being activated via the brake light as the sensor kit instructions recommended. Has your car got sensors fitted on the front? get someone to walk up to the car without the switch on and then try it with it on? the other option is dose it have a power socket in the boot? sometimes people install a switch to prevent power drain if they leave the car with something plugged in. I know I am about to do it in mine as it saves trying to get to the socket if the boot is full, however I will fit mine to one side on top of the plastic trim in the boot.
  12. I have noticed that I am having a bit of a problem withe the throttle when changing gear. on random occasions when I go to change up in gear I depress the clutch, lift my foot from the gas and you hear the engine rev as though I haven't lifted my foot of the gas. I have checked to see if there are any fault codes, but there are none recorded. it is as though the throttle is is momentarily sticking. Any Ideas as to the best way to remedy this.

    2008 Mondeo titanium x

    You can get the manuals from your local Ford Dealer, usually for a couple of quid.they should be able to tell you which model it is as well.

    Towbar & Park Assist

    Is it a flange mount tow bar you have?
  15. Thanks to some idiot who can't park, I now have 2 little scratches on my bumper. Where do I find the paint codes to get the correct color of touch-up paint ?
