    Door Barrel Lock

    I think i am losing my mind! I am certain that my 2014 Fiesta Titanium x had a plastic cover over the emergency key barrel on the drivers door so you couldn’t see the barrel. This would explain why the theives removed it so they could get access to stick a screwdriver in the barrel to force the lock. However I cannot find an image anywhere that shows this, all door trim covers show the end of the barrel protruding so you could stick the key in. Am i wrong? Thanks Andy

    Door Barrel Lock

    I will have a go this weekend. All the “potential” parts from Ford come to £125 + vat which is less than my excess. If i claim then my insurance goes up and they get their money back anyway. The parts guy told me to take the lock from the door which is quite straight forward apparently and go from there. A barrel is around £40 and a key another £20. Only goes up if other parts damaged. Won’t know until strip down! thanks for the advice Andy

    Door Barrel Lock

    Last night some a*******s tried to steal my 2014 Fiesta Titanium 1.0 EcoBoost off my drive. They removed the plastic cover off the drivers door handle and have inserted a screwdriver into the “emergency” door barrel lock to try and open the door. This failed but while i can still insert my emergency key in the barrel it now just rotates and does nothing. Do I just need a new lock and keys or is it likely they have done more damage. The keyless and fob all work ok. I have looked on the web but can’t seem to find anyone who supplies a door lock and keys. Any advice please. Thanks Andy

    Fuel Gauge Reading Full All The Time

    Eventually bit the bullet and took to the garage, as I cannot rely on the miles to empty readout as it falls off a cliff after 50 miles. Seems i needed a new fuel sender and pump. Ouch! fixed now though :-)
  5. My 2014 Fiesta EcoBoost has developed a problem with the fuel gauge showing full all the time regardless of fuel level in tank. With ignition off gauge shows empty but ignition on goes to full. I imagine the sender may be stuck? If not any suggestions please. I have disconnected/reconnected battery but no difference and tried banging tank from underneath with my fist after I ran out of fuel! I removed rear seat to access the pump/sender but there is a layer of what looks like mastic or sealant that is covering what looks like a possible access cover. It is going to be difficult to chip off. Is it tank out job to fix this problem and is that difficult. thanks in advance for any advice regards Andy

    Wipers not working properly

    Update. I checked the fuse box and wiring, nothing obvious and everything dry. All fuses ok. Removed the wipers and stripped the trim off to get to the wiper motor. Checked motor all appeared in order and loom seemed ok. Checked the pins for voltage while operating the wipers. All seemed in order and power at pin 2. Squirted some electrical cleaner into DIN plug and connector on the wiper motor. Reconnected and wipers started working as expected. Not sure how exactly this fixed it and whether it will last, but at least it sorts it for now! regards Andy

    Wipers not working properly

    Update. I have tested all the fuses and they are OK, as it seems the wipers are fused to positions 1 and 5 in the glovebox. I have connected the new wiper stalk and no difference. I am going to look at the wiper motor next, is access easy and how will I identify pin 2? I have found a similar problem with a Focus and it shows corroded pins in the GEM module. Is this the same as the BCM in a Fiesta and if it is, how easy is it to access the BCM in my Fiesta? sorry for slow update but been ill with manflu regards Andy

    Wipers not working properly

    I have purchased a replacement wiper stalk to fit next Saturday, once i check the supply at pin 2 as i assume I won’t get a reading, otherwise the wipers would work! I have disconnected the battery for 1 hour but no difference. If the wiper stalk doesn’t sort it then it looks like the BCM. I will update next week Andy

    Wipers not working properly

    Cheers i will try this and post my results. I am hoping it is something simple like a poor connection. Weird how there is some functionality though!

    Wipers not working properly

    Is this possibly an ECU issue and it gas become confused by the auto wipers being turned on? if I disconnect the battery would it effectively reboot the car? Any advice welcome. Thanks Andy
  13. Hi, I would appreciate some advice as having searched the forum archive I cannot find the same issue I have. I have a 2014 Fiesta Titanium with rain sensing wipers. The operating stalk if flicked down should cause the wipers to operate once. Except they don’t. If you move the stalk to intermittent they work fine. If you move to normal the wipers don’t work, but they will work on max speed. If you press the end of the stalk the wipers will wipe the screen a few times then stop. I have turned the auto wipe function off, as i thought this may be the problem but no difference. On or off my normal wiper function doesn’t work. Any ideas please? thanks Andy
