      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.

  1. Dashcams

    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

    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
  3. Alloy Wheel Colour Name/Code?

    Hi not sure if this helps.. My son has a Fiesta ST3 with dark alloys (the actual Ford colour is Rado Grey). If you can compare wheel colour of yours against Fiesta ST hopefully they will be similar so you can at least disguise the damage. My local automotive paint supplier found that Honda NH586M GREY MET PRO BASE was a good match to disguise damage. You wont get a perfect match due to the multistage manufacturing process and powder baking Unfortunately like you I’ve scratch damaged an alloy on my tItanium edge but cant get a match. I’ve even tried paint shops and Ford dealers when I have been in USA & Canada and they all same the same that it can only be matched by a complete wheel refurb so if anyone out there got a solution I would love to know it
  4. Sync3 Firmware and Nav Updates

    Mine was built Sept 16 and has same details as Jim. Also tried wifi update several times but it just looks like its constantly searching to no avail
  5. servicing

    I too also used to use a very reliable family run Ford business but as a sign of the times they are no longer a Ford dealership so I have to deal with the ‘big boy’ dealerships. I just phoned my local dealer about the convenience check and was offered an interim service for £60+. When questioned about the convenience check they took my details, looked into it and then called me back and said it was an offer by “Trust Ford” and they could only offer £60+ interim service. Anybody else experiencing problems booking convenience check as I thought offer was available at any Ford service dept as its detailed on www.ford.co.uk
  6. Sync3 and Climate screen

    Thanks for posting photo Neil. Yes mine looks different (apart from colours as taken during the day). I don't have heated steering wheel so it may be as Simon notes that its a software thing of all or nothing and yes its a cr4p way of Ford doing it. Has anyone with sync3 and heated/cooled seats but NO heated steering wheel got seat controls appearing on their screen?? Photo of my screen
  7. Sync3 and Climate screen

    Neil, any chance you can post a photo of the sync3 screen showing heated seats. I have sync 3 and seats dont show on mine
  8. Speed limiter

    I've only used the speed limiter in 50mph roadworks where it worked fine. In the manual it states the following for both normal and adaptive cruise:- You can select a permanent set speed tolerance that is in addition to the detected speed limit through the tolerance menu in the information display. See General Information. I just checked mine (adaptive cruise) and its set to manual and the tolerance is 0 mph. Might be worth checking yours to see if you have different tolerance
  9. Auto Relock

    Like Simonb65 I also dont have the Relock option in my Locks menu. Dealer could not fix relock problem and had to get Ford engineer in who had to reprogram several modules. Does anyone have the Relock option in thier Locks menu once Ford have fixed it. For the lucky people where it has always worked is the Relock option available in the Locks menu and what other options do you have in that menu. I only have Autolock, Mislock, Unlocking and Switches Inhibit. The manual also has Autounlock
