      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      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. Focus mk1.5 VSS (speed sensor)

    We find out, that the ring inside the gearbox, where the sensor reads the revs of the shafts from, is plastic and was deameged. So I changed the gearbox (it was easier and cheaper than repair) and now it works great. Regards Poslano z mojega WAS-LX1 z uporabo Tapatalk
  2. Focus mk1.5 VSS (speed sensor)

    Wiring is checked, but everything seems to be OK. I don't know how the transmission looks from inside where the sensor is placed, is there possible that I damaged something when I was pulling the sensor out, because I was revolving/turning it? Poslano z mojega WAS-LX1 z uporabo Tapatalk
  3. Hy guys. At first sorry for my language, I'm from Slovenia ;) Focus 2004 1.6 petrol 74kW So, I had faulty VSS (speed needle dropping to 0) and I replaced it with new aftermarket sensor. There comes new problem :D The speed needle is waveing/oscilating for about 5-10km/h (attached gif). I tried to replace it with another new sensor (other manufacturer) and still same problem. Forscan did found 2 DTCs: P1000 and P0723. I already did clean contact, try to find some faulty cable, but no luck. I also attached PrtScr from Forscan live, if it helps (VSS, VSS_OBD, OSS).This was recorded barely moving. Any suggestions what should try to fix? Regards, Martin
