  1. Also can you see the other two faults about the injectors on the image I posted , do u think them faults are due to the lambda sensor or something totally different
  2. Thanks for advice, I don’t know where it is located on my car , can’t seem to find anything on internet. Found a few videos about petrol focus but nothing for the 1.6 diesel, but like you say if it has burnt out might be better replacing it , or would you leave it until eml came on , as I don’t know if it’s been like it a while or not , i only found out about it after I had car serviced and the guy told me there was something wrong with it
  3. I never noticed until I took it for a service and the guy plugged his machine in and he said there is a lambda sensor problem, but it dosent show anything on eml , but I used to get around 500 miles to a tank but only get about 400 now but just put that down to driving conditions and weather, but wanted to try clean it myself before replacing it
  4. So I think I need a new lambda sensor for 2011 Ford Focus 1.6 tdci, after doing a diagnosis obd2 check it has a fault and on live data shows it’s running at 2.1 volts and from what I have read it should be between 0.1 and 0.9 , I have been quoted £160 to £210 for a new one fitted , but before that I was going to try and take it out and give it a clean , after searching the internet for ages I cannot find its location or any videos it being changed , it is the first sensor before the cat . Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated thanks
  5. Well I've tried twice to release airbag and no luck , not sure if i came close to it lastnight, but gave up as i thought something was gonna break , called ford and they will change wheel for 100 so may take it there
  6. Just one more question lol , in the guide he tells you to turn the wheel to get to some other screws , but just wondering if he's doing that with the battery still connected for the power steering , or turning wheel with no power steering ?
  7. Does the foccuss software let you do a back up ? I've noever used it before.
  8. So i have managed to pick this up for 40 quid off breaker yard , do i need anything else or is it just straight swap cheers
  9. Ian i will give you 200 for your spare wheel and switches and u change wheel and do software 😁
  10. so ive been on breakers yard , and had a couple of quotes from 30 to 100 , so I think I will get a 2nd hand one , I believe I need a connector to plug my car in to the laptop with and that it may need to be modified ,is there one that anybody recommends or if I can get one that has been modified .
  11. Yeah thanks been looking at it all ready for past couple of weeks lol , i noticed someone else needed another wire when they bought a wheel with switch , are you sure i won't need another wire as mine is a 2011
  12. I really miss my cruise control , i sometimes do 1000 miles a week for work and found it a god send , I'm just a bit scared doing it myself and mucking it up somehow . Have you added cruise control tour self ?
  13. Ian Do you think this would work , i have seen a new steering wheel on ebay with both switches either side for 300 , would it just be as simple as changing the wheels over and activating in software cheers
  14. Hi , i have been looking at guides on this forum on how to add cruise control to car , i have a 2011 mk3 focus . There is a detailed guide on how to do it but i was wondering if i could do it differently as such My car already has voice activated phone switches on the right of the steeering wheel , and i was wondering if i could use this switch in its same place for cruise control and activate in the software , i know the pictures on the buttons won't match the function but the look similar to the cruise control switch . Any help would be appreciated, i drive a lot for work and miss my cruise control and don't want to add another stalk on to do it
