  1. No worries. Thank you for taking the time to reply.
  2. My 2012 mk4 has daytime running lights but I am another person who didn't check for 'auto' function of headlamps. My wife's older (57plate) Focus ghia has this seperate selectable function, whereas my Mondeo just has OFF, SIDELIGHTS, HEADLIGHTS. Whilst as mentioned above, you can switch to headlamps and leave it there, ignition on-lights on, ignition off-lights off, but can my car be upgraded/modified to make use of auto function? *my car is 2012 2.0TDCI Business Edition if that helps/makes any difference.
  3. Hi Jon, Where can I find this retrofit guide you mention, and is it something that can be used on mk4 variants? Tony
  4. Firstly, thank you to all who have kindly offered help in my previous posts, very much appreciated and problems sorted. So.... here is my next question... Does my 2012 mk4 estate (business edition tdci) have global opening and closing windows, and if yes, how do you activate the function please, as the owners handbook mentions the feature but nothing about how to use it. *if the alarm is set that when activated, the interior motion sensors are active, does this function automatically deactivate when global windows are opened? Thanks.
  5. Hi, I am about to purchase a towbar for my 2012 mondeo estate, purely for attaching a cycle carrier on odd occasions, no towing of trailers etc involved. If I go down the route of buying through somewhere like towtrust, gt towing etc (other towbar manufacturers are available....) I am told I need 7 or 13 pin electrics + a bypass relay. If I go via Ford, I am told I need 7 or 13 pin electrics + a 'trailer brake module'. This is apparently to tell the computer to adjust ESP amongst other things, when towing. If I am not going to be towing, is this needed?
  6. Thank you. New satnav sd card purchased and installed, and on the few journeys I have made, appears to be working OK....... apart from one thing. Should the satnav in my car have/use traffic updates to route away from, or warn of delays on route? Would appear that when setting destination, I am given 3 route options but once a route is selected, does not change if stuck in traffic. Is the satnav fitted, just a basic unit/version, so better off using my mobile, or just a feature that needs activating please? 👍
  7. Have been doing quite a bit of driving around over the last few weeks, and apart from minor (ish) blips like roundabouts missing on the satnav, and obvious new-build estates not showing either, satnav has performed well. That was until today. Taking my daughter to her new uni accommodation, on a well established housing area, satnav just had me in the middle of a grey screen. No roads showing on that part. My guessing is that the satnav requires updating. Can this be done on my car, is it worth it or too expensive an option to be viable? I think it is referred to as an MCA un
  8. When I turned into my road, I had to use the left turn indicators. They cancelled OK, as normal. Parked up at home, no further use of indicators, so puzzled as to why my right hand side parking lights would be on.
  9. Hi all, Recently purchased my 2012 Mondeo 2.0tdci Business Edition and overall very happy with it. But it does have a fault which I am hoping someone may be able to help with please. When the indicators have been used, and the stalk is returned to the middle/OFF position, sometimes, the right hand indicator will continue flashing. Move the stalk up or down and then return to OFF and this 99% of the time cancel the indicator. Last night when I went to bed, I noticed the right hand side parking light was on. Went down to the car, checked lights switch... Position OFF 👍 Ch
  10. Switch arrived today but..... Still no joy. So I did as you said and carried out a continuity test between the pump plug and the wiper switch plug and both wires triggered the beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep to show good continuity. Placed a secondary wire from terminal 3 on switch connector block (black wire) and a good earthing point but still no joy. Press the switch for washers and the wipers will do their part, sweep the screen a few times but nothing from the pump. If you pull the switch down for the single wipe mode and release, the wipers stop when you release, they do not return
  11. I did indeed try another switch but..... it was slightly different, in that it did not have the variable intermittent wipe switch. Got the right type on order.
  12. Well.... Had it all apart again. Took the connector off the pump, ignition on.... live 12v down both wires... GOOD Wires (+/-) from battery to old pump and no go. Touch wires to new fitted pump.... Washers work. Swap wires around and other washers work. Pump is GOOD. Fuses... had each one out in turn and all GOOD. Multi-meter plugged into connector plug that would go onto pump...... Front or rear washers actives on switch.... 1 wire stays 12v, 1 zero. Repeat procedure for other washers, and no wire being zero'd (earthed out) NOT GOOD. So I am hopefully right in assu
  13. Cheers for that. I will patch in a seperate earth from the switch and see if that makes any difference.
  14. Yep, fully go along with your workings there but when I did the original test, it was with the connector block unplugged from the motor. I placed a test lamp on each terminal of the plug and with ignition switched on, had feed down both wires, which would suggest both circuits are intact. I am at a loss to what is at fault. Pump... New Wiper stalk swapped for new Fuses..... All good Live down both wires Pump still not pumping.......
  15. Tried a new unused switch today. Oh dear, no joy. So...... In the wiring diagram, on the left hand side above the 3 fuses, are the 2 R parts relays? If one of these could be at fault, where are they please?
