    No remote key

    Apologies if this has been posted before. I have spent sometime looking but it's difficult to find a post that answers all of my queries for my specific situation. I recently purchased a 2013 Ford Mondeo Estate 2.0 TDCi but the car only came with 2 normal keys (see attached image), no remote key was supplied. These keys are a real pain because I have to open the drivers door, put the key in, and switch on the ignition before anyone else can open a door. if I don't do this the alarm will go off. We I look on eBay I can see that there are a lot of uncut key fobs for sale at a reasonable price but no one is selling a key for 2012 and above Mondeos. I have found a few keys which are the I think are specification I need but they go for £60 plus. Whats more, they fob seems to be a key-less entry system. The manual that came with my car explains how to program a new key but putting the key in the ignition and following a procedure but I'm not sure how this would work with a key-less system. Could someone please shed some light on this for me? Specifically, I'd like to know: What are my options ie am I forced to get a key-less fob or could I also get a remote key? Can I program the key myself? Is there anyway I can go about this for a reasonable price? If I get a remote key and program it, will it also switch off the alarm? Apart from this problem I am happy with the car and am enjoying driving it. Chris.
  2. Hi All, First post here but have read many and found the forum very useful on this issue already, so thanks in advance. Looking for some advice about how to progress diagnoses or if it's time to say bye to this car which has served me so well! As title suggests, got a Mondeo Mk3 estate 2005 2.0 TDCi 115, 105K on the clock and with a few fairly common symptoms it would seem. Symptoms are black smoke when accelerating (not new but has got a bit worse), a sudden loss of power under load such as overtaking on a motorway or uphill followed by a flashing glow plug light. Car continues to drive but lumpy at low revs and with very limited power esp noticeable above about 1800-2000rpm, as if the turbo isn't activating. Restarting the car clears the warning light and returns 90% of power but it continues to runs very lumpy at low rpm. This has happened three times now within 500 miles and seems to happen once the car has been driven for 45mins or so and has warmed up. Injectors were reconditioned 10K ago and the EGR valve and inlet manifold cleaned after the first time the glow plug light flashed. Couldn't find a split in the hose below the EGR valve as suggested in another post but there must be a fuel/air balance issue causing the smoke, right? I have limited experience but my next thought is that the turbo veins have clogged up given that the EGR valve and inlet were pretty clogged and the loss of power happens when the car is warm when the carbon would liquify. I know very very little about turbos. It doesn't appear to have an electronic actuator (which I understand can burn out) but looks like it might have a pneumatic one. I know 2005 was the changeover year for that item and this is a June production model. Are the veins in the exhaust manifold on this model and how do you go about cleaning them? Can you replace the turbo and actuator separately? Amount of carbon build up in EGR and Inlet Manifold shown below: The DMF has also been on the way out for about a year and a half and now sounds like a bag of spanners. I admit that I have not serviced the car well since finding that out. I'm waiting to have the codes read but it probably only makes sense to fix this new issue if it's something I can attempt to do myself. If DMF is £600-700 and the current 2nd hand value for the car seems to be about £800-900 then any other major repair cost prior to DMF failure wipes out the value and I might be better off spending on a new car instead. That is part of what I am trying to determine. Could the DMF failure attribute to the lumpy running at low rpm? I understand that the ECU on the TDCi's will stall the engine to prevent DMF damaging other things. The car has become increasingly easy to stall when pulling away form a junction, which ties in with this - unusual for a diesel. Thanks for your thoughts in advance, Dave
  3. Hi guys. First up I should tell you I know nothing about under the hood work, so, please, be gentle. I've had my Mondeo for a while now with an intermittent glow plug fault. I had it checked out, and I was told the code was coming up as the Actuator. I was also told this could be any manner of problems, and that first I should try putting come cleaning fluid through it to make sure it wasn't anything clogged up before resorting to the error code. However, today the damned thing went into limp mode, flashing glow plug, and now it doesn't come off. So before I commit to spending 120 on having a new actuator ordered and fitted I looked around the net and read up on a couple of Actuator things. Now, my question is this: I watched the Actuator while I was revving it in my drive and it doesn't move, is this normal? Should it move, or only move when the car's actually in motion? Also, are there other things I should be looking at before committing to a new part? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  4. Hi Everyone, Just joined the Forum today. I've been a Ford man since 1976, with one minor 12 month hiccup that involved a VW Passat, but I'm alright now! I currently drive a Mondeo 2.0 TDCi Titanium which I took delivery of in March this year. Definitely the best car I have owned so far!
  5. Hi, I am new to this forum but thought I would see if anyone else has noticed an odd setup with the Sony/Ford audio in the 2016 Mondeo? I have had the car, a Mondeo 2.0TDCi Titanium, since March and I love it, but have only just noticed that the subwoofer in the boot which is part of the audio upgrade package only works with the rear speakers on. If you fade the sound towards the front of the car the sub gradually stops working. If the sound is faded all the way to the front then the sub doesn't work at all! I'm guessing the sub is wired into the rear speakers only, but that seems to be a very odd way to connect it, surely it should work all the time?? I've managed to check this in a similar car and that was the same. Any thoughts??
  6. Hi, First post whilst waiting delivery of my Ford Direct 2015 Mondeo Titanium X Estate.... My car is fitted with the adaptive LED headlights and I want to know what happens when I take the car into Europe? Can I just use it as-is or are any modifications required? Last time I drove abroad I needed those stick on beam masks!!! Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks Phil A returner to the Ford flock after 6 years with Mercedes C-Class :O)
  7. There's gotta be pros and cons to everything so what do you think they are? From my perspective.... Pros Holds value better than standard car Faster than the standard car More 'sporty' than the standard car Choice of often unique colours Cons Higher cost to buy More likely to be 'egged on' by boy racer types Can be uncomfortable with sports suspension So far for me the pros far outweigh the cons and I really can't wait for mine to be delivered
  8. Hi All, I’m hoping that soneone can offer me some advice… I’m thinking of purchasing a 2008 Mondeo estate – 1.8tdci titanium 95k miles. I’ve heard some horror stories about turbos on the 1.6 focus engine – does this 1.8 engine suffer from the same issues? I’ve also heard about some of the convers+ systems causing a whole host of issues. Are there any other issues that I need to be aware of that people have had – DPF’s dual massflywheels etc etc Many thanks in advance Alastair

    1998 mondeo st24

    my keyfob stopped working a few years ago and I was quite happy to operate with the key. Today the key stopped working and I cannot even lock the doors. Sound advice NEEDED If you require any further pleas for help PLEASE ASK regards Bill
  10. Hi all. I hope someone can give me a piece of advice regarding swapping over the stock grills on my 58 mondeo estate to the honeycomb style of the titanium x sport. I can seem to find the top grill (link here) but I'm not so sure about the bottom one (link here)as the lip of the titanium x is different from mine. Also I'm open to other suggestions of other mods that I can to (keeping it subtle)

    Bye bye baby, baby goodbye

    So it is with regret that I announce that I will be parting company with the Mondeo on Saturday after a grand total of 1 month and 4 days. Turns out that the 'full service' the dealership promised to carry out failed to notify me of currently £1500 worth of fairly immediate work. So rejecting for full refund. Massive shame as I can safely say that it's one of the nicest cars I've driven and I will miss it greatly. Currently looking around for a Mk2/2.5 Focus ST. Don't lose too much in way of space or power that way, so watch this space! If anyone has recommendation of places to look for such a car then feel free to holla my way. 5 doors is a must though - do a lot of car sharing for work.

    Dash gone crazy

    Need help with this, this is an intermittent fault comes and goes. Clocks go blank after ignition. Lots of opinions from mechanics. Any ideas maybe a simple fix Recently fixed faulty alternator and changed tensioner and drive belt. Also need to get a turbo actuator, I think it's a G-149 actuator. Removed turbo and gave it a good clean. Any Gurus help please.
  14. Hi, I'm new to the sight so apologies if this has been discussed before. The orange engine warning light has recently come on whilst driving. There is no loss of performance and the car still drives fine. I've taken the car to my local garage who has plugged in his tester, twice. As soon as he plugs it in the engine light goes our and the fault disappears. There is no record of any fault on his reader so He is at a loss as to what it could be. After driving around normally for a day or so, the light then comes back on again. Any help would be very much appreciated.

    Mk4 mud flaps fitting

    hi guys, i have decided to put some mud flaps on my mk4, i have ordered the correct set for the rear my my car, i haven't fitted them yet only a dry fit, the problem is the flap doesn't sit flush the the grey trim under the bumper and there is a little gap. I'm wondering if the bumper on my car is from the older pre facelift model. my car is a mk4 mondeo sport with 60 plate around the same time as the facelift came out but isnt a facelift model. thew date on the mud flaps say from 08/2010 on wards, my car was made 12/2010. i am confussed. does anyone have pics with mudflap installed i can look at to see how the should fit? GM
  16. Hi, I am looking to purchase a 2nd hand Mondeo Estate (Titanium X Business Model) - We saw one and had an issue with the powered seats... My wife is only just over 5 foot and struggled to reach the pedals as there only seemed to be 4 positions that the seat would go to (with 4 numbered buttons down the side). She's never had a problem with a manual lever to move the seats. The dealer has assured me that this one he has found has 6-way and will be fine as his wife was only 5"1 and she was fine. Any feedback from others with this system? Ian
  17. Hi, I was hoover the interior of my mondeo the other day and accidentally hoovered up this, what seems to be, fuse cover located on the automatic transmission (please see pic). This is a small round plastic cover - can't find it in the hoover bag so, being a perfectionist, need to source another one. Problem is, what do I call it? So I can start looking. Or does anyone know where I can get one? Many thanks in advance! M
  18. Hello all! I'm having an issue with a 2002 Mondeo Ghia X, bought it at the beginning of last year but has created a problem of not always starting, it will always start first time but then if you stop, turn it off and come back within 5 minutes it just doesn't want to start. All of the dashboard lights and other stuff works fine it just doesn't want to tick over from time to time, it's very odd. I think it also has a Clifford alarm fitted, and I'm not sure if that is doing anything to cause the issue. It can be a real bother at times, if you stall at the lights sometimes it has not started at all, so it can be dangerous. It had the starter motor done a few months back so it isn't that.. Any ideas of what this could be? Cheers!
  19. Hello, First of all sorry for my not perfect english. Question is where is the Navi DVD for touchscreen Denso headunit in Ford Mondeo mk3 2005 estate located at? I can't find it. Or mine doesn't have it, because I don't have the CD changer/box thingy in boot? I have empty drawer in the boot. Problem im running into is if I press NAV button, it shows me of some place in europe and is stuck to that position, that made me wondering if there even is DVD inside or even place to put one. Best wishes, and keep it safe
  20. I currently live in Germany and come across a used 2003 Mondeo Ghia TDCI euro spec with about 98k miles on it for 2k euros. The car has been sitting for about two months. When I test drove it today, the snowflake light was on - I am assuming because the engine was cold. After driving for about 30 seconds the coil lights started flashing, then the engine cut out in 3rd gear around 40-50 km around 2-3k rpm rev (estimate). All I felt was a big thud and the car would cut out. It did this about 3 times in a 5 mins span, coil light start flashing and then cut out. I didn't hit above 60 kph. After the 3rd time, about 10 mins later, the coil lights stopped flashing, but the snowflake light was still on. The car didn't cut out anymore. The sellers are willing to bring the price down to however much it cost to repair. This is why I am even considering the car, as I know the cutting out is a known issue based on what I have read, and it seems like it might be an easy fix. What do you guys feel? Is it even worth the trouble even if I can get the car cheap? Do you think the cutting out will go away since the engine hasn't been started for two months? I am bringing it to get a German TUV inspection, so I am not sure if they will catch it or not, but hopefully I can get an estimate on how much it will cost to get it fixed. What do you think?

    Mondeo Clipper probably 2001 (some papers says 2003). My partner went to turn the car around (cold), stalled it and cant start it since. The engine turns well, but it won't fire. Cabled it to a large van to make sure battery has the juice, it turns well but just wont start. Has a half tank of diesel, is on a slight slope. Never had any problems before.
  22. Hi guys, can someone throw me a bone here. Following a rather harrowing accident an object hit the front of my bonnet, the catch popped and the wind threw the bonnet back over and into the windscreen. Now the car's been a great runner, but it's worth less than a grand so the £400 excess to have it repaired wasn't economically viable. I've managed to get a replacement bonnet, new hinges and new support rams - all fitted without problems, but the latch mechanism is damaged and unserviceable. However the lock mechanism still works perfectly, so I've bought a new latch, my question is, how do you get the old latch mechanism out? Is it possible to undo the two retaining bolts and either lift out or drop out the old one without having to start butchering the lock? If anyone has changed out this unit and can give me some pointers that would be great. All the searches I've done turn up loads of things about bonnets stuck closed or unable to latch correctly but very little about actually replacing the latch, not the lock.

    Hi All New member, Just purchased Mondeo 2012 ZBE
  24. Hi guys, I'm thinking of getting a new daily and I shortlisted my model range to either a Focus or a Fiesta. Since it is going to be a daily car I want it to be a diesel. The diesel engines I'm opting for are either the 1.4 tdci (DLD 414) or 1.6 tdci (DLD 416) for the Fiesta or the 1.6 tdci (DLD 416) for the Focus. Now I know that these engines are not all done by Ford but in some websites I read that Ford use Peugeot (HDi) engines and in others I read that these engines where produced together with Peugeot. So what I am asking is, is it true that these engines are only done by Peugeot and Ford source the engines? or it is a new engine that Ford designed researched and produced together with Peugeot? Please any sources in your answers are very appreciated since I want to see whether Ford are sourcing PSA engines or developing them with PSA. Thank You :)
  25. Evening all! TLDR: My mk3 TDCI is producing an intermittent rattling noise on idling, which disappears when I raise the revs slightly by depressing the throttle. Appears to come from the right-hand side of the car, and seems to be external to the engine. Any theories? The long version: This week I needed (i.e. badly wanted!) a new car to replace my battered 20-year-old Corolla. I ended up with a mk3 Mondeo 2.0 TDCi, 115PS, 2006-plate hatchback in green. Great cosmetic condition, 136,000 miles on the clock, with no service history apart from last MOT (March 15), which it passed with a couple of advisories, one of which is the noise I'm asking about here. Okay, so I took a risk, but the car looks great, is much newer and better-equipped than anything else I could have afforded, and cost me just £450! It has a couple of issues, but I figure it's worth spending a bit of money to keep this one running. My theory is that the first owner was a business driver/high miler, as the car is in great condition and the passenger and rear seats have hardly been used. It then seems to have spent about 8 months in the ownership of a young man from a family of traveller types who own horses and buy and sell vehicles - but who don't seem to have done much maintenance or servicing on this car (evidenced by the fact that it needed a thorough cleaning inside and out after purchase, but scrubbed up great!). I was relieved to learn that the mk3 TDCI has a timing chain rather than cambelts. However, it appears that one might still need to check the condition of the timing chain (£200 bill?), and the replacement of the auxiliary belts is due at 125,000 miles (also £200 bill?). As I mentioned in my summary above, there is this metallic rattling noise when idling. It's not there all the time - usually takes several seconds of sitting at traffic lights for it to begin, and it comes and goes. It can be relieved by raising the revs slightly using the accelerator pedal, and also seems to vanish when the clutch pedal is depressed. With the bonnet up, the noise seems to be coming from the area of the auxiliary belts on the right-hand end of the engine. Everything seems to be working; it's just this noise. The car stops and goes just fine and has plenty of oomph. Worth pointing out: the car pulls to the left noticeably, pretty much all the time. This has not been cured by having the wheels aligned or replacing the tyres worn by the misalignment. The only time it has not done this is on a surface with a right-hand camber. The left-hand pull also occurs if I brake sharply (once the car has shed most of its momentum; it then kind of "digs" to the left just before coming to a complete stop, with the steering wheel twisting to the left). Whilst driving I find myself compensating, and at times if feels as if I'm fighting the steering a little. I don't remember having anything like this or noticing heavy power steering on the brand new TDCi estate I hired for a week whilst living in Germany back in 2002, which I put about 1,500 miles on - I was very impressed by that car, and that's one reason why I bought my current Mondeo. So I'm wondering if the rattling is anything to do with the drive to the power steering pump which in turn might contributing to the steering issue. Clearly the car needs an oil and filter change which I will probably do myself. A friend (trained mechanic) drove behind me yesterday and said he saw the odd puff of smoke - not sure how much oil it's consuming but it's in the middle of the dipstick, albeit quite black. Anyway, I'd be happy to clear up the rattling on this thread and investigate the leftward drift separately. PS To avoid wasting time with comments about the risks I've taken, can we please just assume I've done all the self-beatings and sleepless nights about buying a car with no service history from dodgy people - I've got good reasons for not wanting to put any more time or energy into looking for a car, and would just like to know what I might need to do to get this running as sweetly as possible (or indeed if the issue is one I can ignore safely). Over to you! Thanks in advance for your suggestions!
