  1. I have a 2013 Mondeo 1.6 Econetic Tdci Business edition hatchback, had the car since the end of July 2019, nearly 3 months, love it to bits, however when the Stop/Start is active from time to time when stationary and the engine has stopped, when the clutch is depressed the engine starts then immediately red lines, with big spanners showing on the information display and the only way to stop this is to turn the engine off and restart the car and then disable the stop/start function, which is not always the easiest thing to do if your in traffic, more recently the EML light has come on, yet again when you disable the stop/start function it goes out. The car is going back to the garage where I bought it from as it's still under its three month warranty as a second hand car, but I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this ? I know I could just switch off the stop/start function every time I get in, but my thoughts are if it's fitted then it should work, I drive other cars with this function at work and they don't seem to have a problem Can anybody shed any light ?
  2. I have a 2013 Mondeo 1.6 TDCi ecotec business edition, occasionally when the start stop is active it will start but then rev uncontrollably with the spanner symbol showing in the info display, after turning off the engine, it seems to right itself, it only seems to do on a hill start, Am I doing something wrong or is this a common problem ?
  3. I have a 2013 Mondeo 1.6 Tdci Ecotech Business edition, with touch screen satnav/radio/cd, just wondering if anyone knows if I can add a 6 disc CD auto changer to the head unit as it's only a single CD, I think. If I can what would I need. by the way I know it MP3 compatible etc but I'm a little old school. any help would be appreciated, Just one other thing, the voice control doesn't seem to work, loads etc then just keeps requesting select language, which I do (english uk ) loads then goes back to select language any ideas ? many thanks.
  4. Hello to all out there, new to this site so forgive me if I get this wrong, I have a 2007 Mondeo Mk4 2.0 Tdci Titanium X, and I have two questions, Question 1, It has adaptive headlights fitted as standard, because these are so expensive to replace, and due to the fact that the nearside one is u/s does anyone know if I can simply replace both units with standard ones, which would be the cheaper option or does anyone know where I can pick up a half decent N/S unit for not too much money. Question 2, I have had various electrical issues with this car and finally narrowed it down to the central control box behind the glove box, I have purchased another box which is exactly the same part number as fitted to mine, can I just swap them over, some people say yes others say that they are specific to the car and can not be changed without reprogramming everything. Any help would be very much appreciated as I'm pulling what little hair I've got left out, Many Thanks
