  1. If anyones still reading this solved this common fault with the soldering as per the video on the outter pins, resoldering it closed the cracks causing all the fake issues
  2. anyideas where i can find part nuymbers for this before ripping out my car? ie over laptop or...
  3. thankyou for this, this explains a lot of my faults i found this video too which confirms some too... question is... do i repair this myself or send it to a garage to be repaired and they try and sting me for something else? i need a car so wonder if there is like any drop in centres for this?
  4. as far as i was aware canbus high and lows should add to 5v
  5. is it? because i can full drive... albeit limited acceleration once it screems at me, its screemed engine malfunction and more recentlt transmission malfunction... but i reset bu swittching off and on and its back to normal for a bit would the instrument cluster throw up faults about theft detected and clutch sensor "P0704 Ford Description When the clutch pedal is depress the voltage signal from the clutch switch to the Engine Control Module (ECM) is low. If the ECM does not see this change from high to low when the vehicle is over 0 mph, the ECM sets code P0704. " any reason why it wont allow me to fire up sometimes and just screams at me? i can hear a lift pump engage on key turn and a relay click off on switching off in the front of the enginebay at the moment i have many ideas but none solid any id
  6. Ok guys a Computer issue anyone offay with the workings of the Cambus on ford focus titanium 09 I am getting issues whilst driving, idle - I can be driving and nee nah nee nah the alarm goes off saying engine malfuntion then my odo and rev counter drops momentarilly then comes back on... i am still able to drive the car but then the ESP light comes on. IS the car able to operate while the PCM is offline? sort of a manual mode? it goes into limp mode but a simple restart of the engine clears this.. i am wondering if it is related to the ESP? as i have full esp func before this error occurs... i have have this go off at random times over various terrains, i cant pinpoint it down. Torque pro will list the error as powertrain contol issue, "theft detected" ?? i didnt steal it honest guvnah sometimes i dont even get to fire up the engine. as i can hear the fuel pump prime but on ignition nothing.... no starter motor or anything... (full power tho) a simple open up the bonet and let it fall shut seems to knock something to make it work....????? I am stumped any suggestions please
  7. Ive had minimal issues with my car for the last two years until now I keep getting the ENGINE MALFUNCTION and REDUCED ACCELERATION and the ESP light go on... restarting the car clears this issue for a bit. but this can be a bit problematic on motorways. Any clue as to what might be the problem. On another not but which could be connected or coincidental I do have a distinct juddering on braking in the range from 32-38 mph but above or below its not felt. I have put this down to a very slight knock/tap i had in the winter weather sliding into a kerb at 2mph afterwhich i realighed my tracking and thought nothing of it.... its only recently ive noticed the juddering a lot more... could it be more than warped discs? I have Forscan but Im no master tech and not entirely sure what i am doing on it. Any suggestions? Ford Focus Titanium 09 1.6Ltrs
