  1. Actually, you can buy a windscreen strip aerial from Halfords. I don't how pretty it will look but my advice would be to look around online and see what you can find, you'll probably find something better online. Just make sure whatever you buy has an earth, otherwise you'll blow the receiver in the radio. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  2. I've got a mk4.5. I could be wrong but I think the aerial is built into the heated windscreen wiring. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  3. It's difficult finding a Mondeo at the right year with the parts. Every Mondeo 2010/11-14 has been stripped. It's my daughters birthday tomorrow so I'm not touching the car until after that but once it's started everything will be striped and tested step by step until a problems found.

  4. I know. I even spoke to a ford technician and he's never heard of this happening either which turned my stomach as I'm probably looking at an expensive repair or a work around. As soon as it's sorted, I'll post what the problem is and what the fix is, or what has been done to get it working as it should. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  5. Sorry Jonro, we tried putting the modded relay back in and everything works as it did. We also took a second relay casing off and they're exactly the same multipurpose relays minus the solder. I really don't know what's going on but he mechanic friend and his auto spark friend are going to look into it together. I doubt they'll need it but I'll pass on the manual you have linked too. Thanks for that by the way. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  6. I bought the car in February 2016. It only had a six month limited warranty. Had it been inside that period or had I know then I would have taken it back. I just took their word for it as the heater and air on worked on every setting. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  7. No not yet. I'll get my friend to do it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  8. Yeah it's OEM. If I drop the modified relay back in everything works perfectly. Except it gives a burst of air every minute of so after turning the engine off which drains and damages the battery. Once it's removed, the system works but no matter work speed the blowers set to it won't blow. The resistor has been replaced too. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  9. That's the modified relay. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  10. Yeah, that's why I joined. I figured if I can't find something online that somebody will know something or point me in the right direction. Although I'm still confused as to why everything worked perfectly with the bridged relay? Any idea's?
  11. Thank you Jonro, I've actually been looking for something like this, but didn't have any luck finding it. I'll give it a go and report back.
  12. Hi, I desperately need some help here. I have a 60 plate Mondeo MK4.5. The problem I have is with the heater blowers. When I bought the car they weren't working so I reported it to the garage I bought the car from, he said "Yeah, it's the relay, I know about it and I'll fix it" Anyway, cutting a long story short I recently sent it into to a friend of a friend thinking I needed a new alternator, turns out the battery had been drained because the heater relay had been soldered to make a permanent bridge, which was arcing and causing the blower motor to give a quick burst of air every couple of minutes after the engine had been turned off. After changing the relay the blower motor will no longer work, bearing in mind EVERYTHING worked perfectly before changing the relay that had been bridged (Apart from the bursts of air). After trying with two more relays I still get nothing. All pin connectors have been tested and they're in perfect working order. The heater resistor has been replaced, all the controls are working. The climate control self diagnosis is displaying a fault 9069 or 90b9. Anybody any idea's what could be happening? My friend spoke to a friend of his who happens to be an auto spark and he thinks it's possible that its an ignition earth somewhere.
