    MK8 ST Line spare wheel

    Looking at the 'build and price' on fords website, the 14" spare is the option for the fiesta, looking on ebay, most are all 15" - https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/GENIUINE-FORD-FIESTA-MK9-2017-ONWARDS-SPACE-SAVER-15-SPARE-WHEEL-JACK-KIT/162570986598 which would be correct?

    About to look at an ST-2

    After reading another thread here, make sure the catalytic converter hasn't been removed.

    Mk8 Hill start assist

    Mine's been on since I had the car, nearly 1600 miles on the clock.

    Mk8 ST-Line X 140 early impressions

    On mine, I switch ignition on, wait for sync to start up, then press the buttons together for 5 secs. It then enters a speaker test mode, which you exit to access the rest of the diagnostics. I have the B&O play, don't know whether that makes a difference? Couldn't work out how to make the icon in the menu for this though...

    Mk8 ST-Line X 140 early impressions

    It's the ►►▌ in the top pic, and the ►▌ on the steering wheel. I got the menu when the car was running, I guess as long as the car is on, you should be able to access it.

    MK8 Eco coach: do you have it?

    Nope, no 'eco coach' screen for my Vignale, and the manual still lists it with the vin filter on 😕 I'm guessing ford just use the same manual for all cars, and use the ' Some menus may show features as used in different models, so may appear different to you on your vehicle.' as a disclaimer......

    Fiesta B&O radio no sound

    I had this at the weekend with my B&O audio. Before it happened I had washed my car. I had to keep unlocking my car as it kept auto locking, and the jet wash would set the alarm off. I'm guessing it was locked/unlocked about 10-20 times in about 30 mins. When I went to drive the car after washing it, I had no beeps, audio wouldn't budge from 0, there was even no 'click' sound when I used the indicators. I stopped the car, and did a full sync reset, and still had the same problem. Drove around for about 30 mins, turned the car off, then on again and it worked. I'm wondering if its a power saving 'feature' if the battery gets too low (not that the battery should get low on a 5 month old car), but then start/stop worked fine...

    MK8 Fiesta - Permanent Live Fuses ?

    Just a single dashcam, a nextbase 512g that I've had a couple of years. Start/Stop works fine for me, but It's probably too early to say if it affects start/stop, but will definitely keep and eye on that.

    MK8 Fiesta - Permanent Live Fuses ?

    Just to confirm, I've now hard wired my dashcam, and fuse no.5 is permanently live 👍

    Mk8 ST-Line X 140 early impressions

    Yeah, it does show the temperature setting on the screen, I've just tried the voice command in my Vignale and it doesn't do temperature voice command 😞

    Should be able to? commands are : (copied from handbook) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Climate Control Note: Not available through the system on all models. Voice Command Description Set temperature to ___ °F Set temperature to ___ °F Set a temperature between 60°F (15.5°C) and 85°F (29.5°C). (temperature high | (high | maximum | max) [temperature [on]]) Max temperature Max temperature Set the temperature to maximum. (temperature low | (low | minimum | min) [temperature [on]]) Min temperature Min temperature Set the temperature to minimum. Add the required temperature to the command. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Haven't tried it yet, and doesn't look like you can control the blower speed (which was useful when I had my 2012 Focus Titanium X)

    MK8 fuel economy

    Around 37-38 mpg day to day use around town (some journeys I really should walk), and longer trips i.e A roads/motorways, have seen around 43-45 mpg. Fiesta Vignale 1.0 140bhp

    MK8 Fiesta - Permanent Live Fuses ?

    I think I remember reading the accessory sockets (cig) only stay live for 75 mins after ignition is turned off. Looking at the fuse chart, I would guess that fuse no.5 lock/unlock would be live at all times, but that's only a guess without checking..

    Stoplock for Fiesta Mk8?

    Thanks, I'll have a look at that.
  15. Hi All, Any idea which stoplock fit's a mk8 Fiesta steering wheel? The stoplock application guide only goes up to the mk7, which it's only the airbag or stoplock pro elite that fit that. Anyone used one for a mk8, or any other suggestions?
