      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

    03 Focus ST170 5Dr
  1. Live Cigar Lighter

    Folks. Throwing myself at your mercy here. I own an 03 ST170 5Dr which I am delighted with. Except one thing.. The vehicle has two cigar lighter sockets. One mounted on the dash and one on the rear of the centre console for rear seat passengers. And they're both CONSTANTLY LIVE! I have an iPod dock which transmits on a set FM frequency. It's fitted correctly but owing to the cigar lighters being constantly live, drains my battery in a matter of days. Is there an easy and safe way to fit a switch to this circuit so that I can choose when to power up the lighter sockets. OR, is there a way to link the cigar lighter sockets to the ignition circuit so that they only come on when I turn the key? Of course, I CAN just unplug everything but this is becoming a pain in the backside and is loosening the plugs and sockets. Thanks in anticipation. KD.
