    Ford Fiesta car battery/alternator problems! Help needed!

    Measure the voltage at the battery, really this procedure should be followed on a fully charged battery when fitting it to the car for the first time. Battery should read 12.6 - 12.7v when fully charged. Reset BMS Turn ignition to ON but do not start the car Press hazard light switch 5 times Press rear fog lamp switch 5 times Watch for battery light in IPC to flash, once it's stopped flashing turn off ignition and open drivers door. Close drivers door and ign on, start engine Procedure complete Its worth a try if you're still having issues

    Decat for fiesta 1.0 ecoboost

    Don't decat, some back pressure can be good, especially on turbocharged motors. If you cause a pressure dip in the turbine housing it can start leaking oil past the turbo oil seals, turbos now run high pressure oil feeds to account for the high pressure exhaust environment. You'll also loose some torque, on a 1.0l motor that's never a good thing. If you want better performance, put your money into a sports cat, it'll still flow better than the original, it'll still meet approval for MOT, It'll keep some back pressure. Then a decent manifold and resonated cat back pipe, enclosed induction pipe, FMIC and remap. Personally wouldn't bother with the induction kits since the factory airbox is more than capable! If you can weld..... eBay 252379664146 £69.99 for a universal 2" 200CPSI Sports cat Or £79.99 for a 2.5" If you cant, there are options on eBay for around £450

    Oil in air intake pipe 1.6tdi 2012 Focus

    It's normal If you buy it however and it has a DPF I would recommend getting a catch can. Soot doesn't fill DPFs, it's the small amounts of oil that get combusted from the ***** poor recirculation system. I also made a drain hole in the bottom of my intercooler; to drain it at services intervals

    Focus 2013 1.6 tdci oil service

    I personally drop 1l out and refill with 1l diesel, drive round the block, low revs, low load. Drop the lot out, leave the bung out and tip 1l fresh diesel in.....allow to drain for 5mins (***** break) Bung cheap oil in -5w/30(low saps) from home bargains £14 A pop- Drive round the block(low revs, low load) Drop that + change filter then refill with Magnatec 5w/40 C3 dexos2 ...... A5 is specified but C3 is better for diesels. First time I did a flush as above I got loads of lumps of carbon out and my oil pressure at the turbo banjo shot up to 2.3bar at idle from 1.6bar (hot) 6.1bar at idle from 5.0bar (cold) I had a special banjo bolt made with a 1/8npt thread in the top for my pressure sensor fitment. I don't know if these later 8v motors will prove to be as unreliable as the older 16v counterparts but given that they use a similar EGR system I wouldn't be surprised to find it's a carbon muncher. I'm taking no chances! I keep the oil crystal clear and monitor oil pressure.

    My Ecoboost has randomly increased in power!

    The system allows a certain amount of overboost, provided some variables are met. Ambient temps Inlet temps Exhaust temps (pre and post) Fuel temp Engine coolant temp Electrical load Are just some of the variables that are monitored. For instance My 1.6 tdci will be like a rocket until it warms up, then it dials the fuel and boost back to prevent overheats. It's a little different due to it being diesel but it's the same principal

    Reverse camera (factory fitted/aftermarket camera)

    If you can get in there you can buy replacement LEDS or make a t10 holder 👍🏻 Yes, you can take multiple feeds from one wire l, provided it doesn't pop the factory spec fuse 👍🏻

    TPMS/DDS Questions

    Yeah I've come to realise that the systems are very buggy......thanks to Microsoft 🤦‍♂️🤷‍♂️🙃 I think you may be right, battery off+system total power loss for 30 mins or so then reboot.....

    Unresponsive Steering Wheel Controls

    That would be a VERY long usb extension lead 😂 Seriously though, don't try that! There would be signal loss over long distances 😬 I suppose you could bring the whole pc outside with an extension but it seems excessive... If you're ever around the north west you're welcome to mosey on over, I'll be more than happy to help out. At present there is no facility for module programming on the Android or IOS app, which is a bit of a bummer..... That's if I can escape from the lorry, this week has been horrendous......Roll on Saturday!!!

    Reverse camera (factory fitted/aftermarket camera)

    That night vision looks great especially since there's no LED support !! As for fitting the reverse cam to mine, I don't want to loose the graphical reversing sensor display on the radio, I have an idea for mine. I'll post it up when I get it all sorted 😁👍🏻

    Unresponsive Steering Wheel Controls

    Yeah, I think the design is similar to that of tv remote controls in that there will be a rubber pad with the plastic buttons on top. Squirting it in from the top probably wouldn't get to the circuit board and contacts below. The cable you'd be looking for would be the MODIFIED ELM327 with a HS/MS CAN switch(I went for the one with the FTDI chip). I personally prefer the USB version due to it being more reliable. Then you'd download FORScan (it's free) -quick search on Google Then follow the steps to register and then get an extended licence (also free) Once you're in FORScan and you've connected to the vehicle, on the tabs on the left, click on the tab that looks like a square chip (like a micro-processor) Select the APIM (ASBUILT) and press play Then you'll get the below screen

    [Guide] Upgrading Sync Module to show Bluetooth track info

    The cost of the unit? If you mean the price I have no idea. It seems that this is the part number fitted to vehicles in Thailand. I'm afraid I don't know if this is a Sync 1 or Sync 1.1 module. I'd presume that this is Sync 1 since Thaifiesta posted that this was his part number. Again I presume that if you can get hold of a D1BT-14D212 OR E1BT-14D212 Then you should still be able to upgrade to Sync 1.1 by following the info in this thread

    Reverse camera (factory fitted/aftermarket camera)

    You may strike lucky with these but I find they're not very bright. The brightest ones are CREE LED As opposed to regular LEDs As far as I know the fiesta doesn't monitor lamps on the can bus so you won't need can bus error cancelling bulbs - with the exception of headlamps and indicators. I've had indicator failure warnings whilst connected to an LED trailer before I added the load resistors. The headlamp never seems to throw a warning on the dash but I have seen the fault when running a scan on FORScan with a modified elm327 due to an ignitor fault with my HID setup (they're in projector housings so as not to blind everyone and set low)......I just know I'll get the pitchfork crew after me for admitting it 😋 Anyway, I'm really glad we got it all sorted, we just need to get a work around sorted for the mk7.5 MFD HIGH NAV reversing camera that will interface with the BCMii and give turning lines/zoom.
