      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. Please Help! Got A 2008 TDCI 2.0 Focus with a Auto box which has a wiring / electrical problems. When the car is switch on before cranking there is a relay clicking from two relays in the under bonnet fuse box. The clicking is rapid for may be 10 seconds then it may click after that time once or twice every 10 secounds or so. If you crank the car when the clicking slows down the car will start and run for ten seconds or so then cut out. I have looked at the following removed the dash and moved the plug around and flexed the speedo no change to the clicking and all gauges are working when it runs. I have cleaned the all earths and battery termails and given all the loom a wiggle test still no change to the clicking . Also changed to two relays to working one and they work fine in a second vehicle. If I bridge the two relays I can still hear a faint clicking from the engine ECU. I think it may be a can bus system fault but unsure how to test loom or system to confirm. All other electrics on the car are fine lights wipers windows radio etc. Any ideas would be great appreciated as this car has on 40K on the clock and is to good to scrap
