  1. I had mine changed yesterday, Ford branded Varta - £127 plus VAT for the battery. This was a Ford authorised garage rather than a franchised dealer like Dees
  2. Hi all just an update. Attempted to drive to my garage this morning with error lights still in place (temp and engine management light). made it no further than half way down the road at max 8 mph. Limped home AA called out and attended really quickly. Cleared error codes: System : Engine control 1 - ZCH / Motronic MEDG 17.0P033900 - Crankshaft position sensor. Error Message : Sporadic fault. P1026 - Unknown fault. Error Message : Malfunction. P129900 - Cylinder head. Error Message : Overheating protection active. Car behaved after that. Advised to change
  3. Thank you both The coolant is the original and the level is fine, it doesn't look frozen. I'll have to ring my garage next week as I don't know anyone who can clear codes. It maybe that the sensor has gone or a fuse to the sensor has gone so it has a default mode of overheated?
  4. Hi all today I had to get the AA (or rather their contractor Sovereign) to come and help start my car today. Since then the car has recorded an over heated engine and coolant overheating. It also drives appalling bunny hopping, rough idle, no real acceleration. When I said to the AA about the fault lights (spanner and engine) they said it was due to the flat battery (note these have never shown before) so appeared to make sense to me. I was told to leave the car on for. an hour or leave it about 20 mins and then go for a drive. So I went for a short drive and it was horrendou
  5. If you buy your dash cam from Halfords they will hard wire it for you for a small fee. They did mine very well.
  6. maybe I have my music too loud then! plenty of pot holes in SW London
  7. Sorry you are right it should be exFat.
  8. I have the same version sync as you and I am now on F9 for maps. I do not think the updates work via wifi for our cars. You will need to download it from the website and update that way. One of the key things is to ensure your USB drive is big enough and has been formatted to FAT 32 otherwise the system will not recognise it.
  9. Auto headlights (not LED, but upgraded Philips halogen bulbs), heated steering wheel, great ride, sleek looks, quick clear windscreen, many things really. The heated steering wheel is really good for me as I suffer from circulation issues in my hands and while the rest of me doesn't feel the cold, my hands do, 2-3 minutes max in the morning and all is well.
  10. I've found this review from July 2017 that also confirms the torque converter. https://www.eurekar.co.uk/articles/2017-07-17/no-siesta-for-new-fiesta Hopefully that is the end of it. who knew it would be so hard so find out the specs for my car.
  11. Thanks Tiexen, I saw that, but was then confused by the comment on the front page, I was wondering if it was a typo as mine is 2017. 'Significantly, after all the trouble with Getrag Powershift dry clutch packs, Ford has reverted to a "6-speed torque converter automatic" for the 2018 Fiesta.' I don't have an issue with my car, but I was asked about what type of automatic gearbox it was and couldn't answer.
  12. I have a Fiesta, Titanium Mark 8 automatic, which I love. However, I am having trouble finding out what type of automatic gearbox it has? The car was registered on 7 August 2017 if that helps? Some say torque convertor, others Powershift, I can't work out if it's wet or dry. Can anyone help?
  13. I note you are using usb 3, all the guidance I have seen online states a preference for usb 2 and I use some fairly cheap scan disk 32gb drives.
  14. HI Sierra is generally automatically set to auto unzip files. Under preferences / general untick 'open safe' files and all will be well.
