      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. My car won’t start

    Hi everyone, this is my first post and it’s because I’m in desperate need of your help, i appologise if it’s in the wrong section, i have a focus 2011 sport 1.6ltr it’s got 100k on the clock, the problem is that on Thursday it started fine but as I pulled off the engine just stopped and would not start again, the engine cranks but I’m not getting the fuel pump priming so i replaced the pump but still no go it’s still not priming with the new one, the relay under the dash is working but i tried it with the horn Relay but still no go, i tried the pump fuse but that’s ok I’m getting 11.7 volts run through it for about 1 second then none, I’ve put a 12v lead directly to the pump and it works the pump and the engine starts but obviously I don’t want to drive with it with a perm live. please can someone give me some ideas as I’m pulling out the last bit of hair i have left trying to sort this, Thanks in advance.
