  1. This also happens on my Edge. It always happens after I get message that system powered down to save battery. Im sure its down to battery voltage being slightly down as car not used regularly due to lockdowns. With mine if I drive the car for about 20-30mins and park and fully lock car whilst shopping etc all is fully working when I drive home.
  2. Thanks for info Baileymex. I keep looking around hoping it still exists. You never know these days
  3. Hi, Thanks for your input and experience details. Ive not done rotations with my previous cars and looks to me its not worth the hassle of tyre rotations these days and wont bother. Take care and happy driving.
  4. Long-shot but Hopefully still looking for my old Capri 2.8i. It was black and last had a logbook issued in 2010 with record details still on DVLA website. If anyones got any information I would be grateful. Its registration is FVX 516Y.
  5. Thought about rotating my tyres to even wear as fronts are wearing a bit quicker than rears however after talking to my tyre guy and researching on internet it appears to be not as easy as I first thought. It would seem tpms sensors have to be relearnt to their new positions once tyres have been rotated and a “tool” is needed to do this. It's not just a case of resetting on the dash as you do when adjusting tyre pressures. Otherwise the tyres have to be removed from rims and swapped around but keeping the rims in the same locations which is a costly exercise and not worth doing. Has a
  6. Ive had a similar experience and especially during lockdown. What I have noticed is that at the same time the parking sensors are also very tinny sounding and their sounds appear to come from within the dash and not car speakers in front/back of car. Ive put it down to me starting the car and moving off quickly (when Ive been in a hurry) and sync3 hasn't fully loaded. I also got this a lot during lockdown as the car was little used and battery was running down plus each time I got in the car sync3 displayed system off to save battery message. Car started fine each time but parking sensors were
  7. Hi, had to replace same on my 2016 Titanium drivers door last week. Went to Fords and quoted part no 5349056 but they could find it so they looked it up by my registration number and said part number had been updated. This is a photo of the bag the part came in so hopefully you can get the details you need. Cost me about £23
  8. Thanks Sonic72 for the info. I downloaded the files from the forum and now have updated F7 maps. Stick-1 took about 40mins as expected and stick-2 only about 4 mins. I compared stick-2 files and those I downloaded from Ford server and they were identical so all now seems to be working ok. Its a shame FORD cant get the download system working as designed so its customers don't have to struggle to update their vehicles. Guess we will just have to wait and see what happens at the next update if they release one or will they just release another version of sync which we can't insta
  9. Any suggestions? I’m running latest sync3 version 3.0 build 18025 (updated by Fords as failed several times when I installed files downloaded from ford website) plus on Saturday I updated maps from ford website with the 7.3gb download. Connected car to home wifi and ran check for updates and no further updates found but this confirmed to ford servers the software version installed. Website now says my sync and map versions are up-to date. Trouble is my maps are still showing as EU 4 14. Does anyone else have or had this problem following the official ford update process?
  10. Car was in Ford service on 3/8 for “no key detected” fault and they checked fobs etc and all passed. Bizarre thing is the key fob still works when you press button but keyless touch on door handles is dead. Once that happens the “no key detected” message comes up on the dash and you cannot start car as everything is locked ie steering lock, auto gearbox and brakes. Its been in Ford service again since friday but they cant find anything wrong. Even putting the key on the recovery slot in the armrest fails to detect the key. Car is undergoing more tests today and due back to me tomorrow if
  11. Hi Trent Edge. Just wondered if you had any issues since your last update. The reason I ask is I followed your brilliant install document and like you installed Thinkware 800pro which has worked great since beginning of May. However since mid July I have had 3 instances of No Key Detected and the car not starting luckily the last time in Fords Service dept car park and they could not get the car started but bizarrely the fault cleared itself overnight. Its probably totally not related but Ford service and technical support cant find an issue with the car and there are no fault codes. The
  12. Since I changed mine to right hand traffic I’ve been flashed less by oncoming traffic so presumably its better for them with the lower beam pattern. It doesnt seem to have made any noticeable difference when on full beam with no oncoming traffic and no streetlights as still get a good spread of light to see where I’m going.
  13. Been flashed again tonight by oncoming traffic so checked the traffic setup setting of my adaptive LED headlights. Mine has been set by the dealer at delivery to left hand traffic. I changed it to right hand traffic and noticed the lights dip more to the left (nearside) and dip downwards slightly. This suggests it seems to be better for oncoming traffic and I wonder if its been set wrong from delivery. Trouble is there where I live is all street lights so very difficult to test light pattern when on main beam. Now I’m wondering if “Left hand traffic” means driving on the left or oncoming traf
  14. Like Edge of Reason I was thinking of getting a dashcams to cover both front and rear. I’ve heard Blackvue dashcams are recommended. Anyone had any experiences with them or any other recomendations. Not had a dashcam before so any hints or tips would be most welcome
  15. Hi Laskababy. Have a look at the post on 14th January on same topic. Not a perfect solution but maybe a good workaround. Powder coated wheels are great until you scratch them then they become a nightmare to get a perfect match
