  1. Have the same issue with my mk1 cmax. Have had the issue for a few months and not arsed fixing it as I'll have to replace the whole door mechanism. It is annoying the whole locking itself thing. Missus left the key in the Car once and the car locked itself . Lucky we had a spare and could open the boot as the drivers door wouldn't open .
  2. I had the same king of problem with my mk1 cmax Engine malfunction light on it intermittently. Wouldn't start and loss power sometimes. Mine stopped when I unplugged an obd I had left plugged in. Apparently theres a fault with the Dash's themselves and they need to be resolder. Try giving the dash a bang when it happens again. I'm not sure if the issue would be the same yours is newer model but Worth a try
  3. What absolute scumbags.!! Really need a rear dashcam that records even with car of. Only way to cover ourselves from these scumbags.
  4. Keep driving till engine goes boom and do not replace it. I replaced my 1.6tdci engine 2 weeks after buying the car. Worst mistake,engine I got from the scrapyard was s**t and after awhile I had to replace the whole top end of that engine and I still have problems with the car. Rather scrap it and buy another one, you,d get a full car for the price of an engine and labour (unless your in the trade and do it yourself )
  5. I'm not 100% sure if I'm thinking of the same pipe as you but mine has a pipe like that and I'm pretty sure it's a breather pipe( unsure of exact name) and that it's meant to hang there. Someone else will be along to clarify or tell me I'm a gobs*ite . :P
  6. To me sounds like there's an immobilizer issue. That electricity transformer I'd say has nothing to do with it. Have you checked for error codes?
  7. Get rid of it now!! I was in the same back in 2016. Bought a cmax 1.6tdci. Turbo blew 2 weeks later due to the last owner not giving a toss about the car which in turn destroyed the engine. I replaced engine and turbo. Engine that was put in was pure crap. I've spend at least 2-3 times the value of the car in 2 Years and I'm still having issues with it. Cut your losses unless your a mechanic but even my mechanic got sick of seeing it!!!
  8. Rattling may be low oil.? You check oil level? Get it plugged in and see if fault codes have been recorded
  9. Right back to square one . Issue still remains. I've Blanked egr Turbo itself only has about 27,000 miles New maf New map New pressure converter Can't find any cracks or leaks Any other ideas?
  10. Update: Part arrived today. Threw it in Car sounded smoother and not as loud. Drove for about 20km and no boost issue. Drove in 2nd and 3rd gear and floored it a few times and no issue. Seems to drive and pull smoother. Although all this could be a placebo effect! :p Hopefully its sorted. Will update after a few hundred km .
  11. Ye I think most people do that the first time they feel abs kick in. Previous car and motorbikes didn't have abs so when it kicked in first time in my cmax ,I was like wtf!!! :p
  12. Hi Battery and alternator all good. Ye I've cleared these codes numerous times and the only one that disappears is the egr one and only comes up every now and again but that is because the egr is blanked. I've ordered the pressure converter and is due to be here next week :) Couldn't seem to find those tests on forscan. I'm still fairly new to forscan so probably just couldn't see it :p Hopefully changing this will fix the turbo issue as it wasn't too bad before as in if I kept my foot from going the whole way down it wouldn't happen but now its happening and happening more frequently, very scary when overtaking or going up/down a sliproad or junction.!!
  13. Could be air in the system and needs to be bled. I had the same issue on my car. Turned out it was the master cylinder had f**led itself up. I thought it was air in the system and only when I went to bleed it,it started pouring brake fluid everywhere .
  14. I have the same issue. It,ll turn left easily and unlock but turning right won't work unless I turn the key left then push the lock in and turn right while its pushed in.
