    Hello everyone

    Hello everyone, I'm Stu. Just joined. I had a Focus ST170 on a 53 plate, now I have a Zetec S on a 2010 plate in, yes you guessed it, white! It's a 2.0 Diesel. 🙂 Need a few bits doing to it, but it will soon be up to my standards. The previous owner had a dog so I've been vacuuming out dog hair for what seems an eternity today! Getting it checked over Saturday morning by my local garage. Fingers crossed its all good. (I've blanked out the number plate because its a private one and the pervious wonder wants it back)
  2. Does anyone have experience in rebuilding these turbos? can i whack in a new cartridge? My Nut appears to of come off and has caused a bit of a mess

  4. Hi Folks! I just bought my first Ford Focus MK3 with 1.0L Ecoboost. The car is "used" and I want to make first maintenance by myself. I want to install all genuine Ford parts but after research found FoMoCo and Motorcraft filters https://parts.ford.com/shop/en/us/filters https://focusoilfilter.com/ What is OEM brand for Ford Focus FoMoCo or Motorcraft? Or this is exactly the same? Sorry for stupid question and thank you for your answers! 😉

    EGR valve frozen (P1412)

    Hi I have a engine light on my Ford Focus 2005, 1,6TDCi. I read the code(P1412) and it says "EGR valve frozen". I have tried dismounting and cleaning the valve, but the light comes back on after a while. I don't know what to do next, and i was wondering if changing the valve will fix the problem? Does anyone have similar experiences? Best regards Fredrik

  9. Hello all, So I have just bought a Ford Focus Powershift 1.6 2012 plate with 29k on the clock from a Ford Dealership on the 09/04/2018. I was briefly told about the Powershift transmission, I mean they didn't mention the issues with it of course but afterwards I have seen that there are wide spread issues with this transmission. I am used to driving an automatic but I cannot say I notice any difference when driving the car but I put my registration into the Ford recall website and it said the following. Outstanding Field Service Actions 14M02 - TRANSMISSION CONTROL MODULE I believe this is just an extended warranty on the transmission but regardless, I am pretty worried about the car now. I am unsure what to do now - Also a side note I have read that the gearbox oil and filters should be changed every 3 years or 30k miles. This car has a book full of service stamps for every year since it was bought but I have no idea if the oil/filters have been changed and if so when they were... So would my best bet be to get them done ASAP? Thanks
  10. Hi, I am looking to install a parking sensor kit but I cannot find any that are paintable (to colour code). I do not want a screen just a bleep would do me fine. Thanks for your help.
  11. Hi, I've recently bought a 2006 (55plate) 1.6l ford focus LX (petrol) and the cluster is basically fried, the car drives and works ok but the throttle is only putting out at 21% and after driving for a while it can go into a "limp-home-mode" ... Kinda scary when you go from doing 70mph on the motorway to 20mph all of a sudden. After a lot of messing we worked out it was the cluster but now we arent sure if we can just replace the cluster, if so, do you NEED it reprogrammed because of the immobilizer etc or if you can just find one with similar milage, swap the cluster and away you go or if you have to replace the whole ECU set .... Any help? Thanks
  12. Ford Focus II 2010 - ELM Config 0.2.17c Hi guys, I'm trying to activate cruise control on my car. I managed to activate it in GEM and HEC but struggling in the PCM. Getting error non-empty VID block found in the PCM module. Here is a video of what i'm doing https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ODUdxjR7uvY If someone can point out what i'm doing wrong would be very appreciated.
  13. Hello. I have a Ford Focus Zetec Econetic 1.6TDCI
  14. Hi guys, I'm having a bit of an issue locating the disable switch for the passenger airbag on our 2016 Ford Focus. I believe it is a MK3. I have checked between the door and dash of both doors as well as in the glove box. I've looked around but can't find it anywhere. I have two kids and need to put one of them in the front, but can't until the airbag has been disabled. Thank you very much in advance for your help.
  15. Hi guys I've been having a bit of trouble for a while now with starting. It's really intermittent, although it has become progressively more frequent. It will happily crank over and sounds as if it's about to start then fails. This can repeat quite a few times (10+ in the worst cases) until it starts. If it's taken a few goes to get it running then you will get some white smoke from the exhaust - this is the unburnt fuel, so it is definitely injecting fuel even though it won't start... As I said this has been going on for a while, maybe 6 months now. Initially it was a case that the problem may happen a couple of times a month and it would always start on the second attempt. More recently it's happening much more frequently, and regularly requires quite a few attempts before it will start. I've had in on the diagnosis machine (I'm quite lucky and have free access to one). No error codes, nothing, nada. Even had the diagnosis machine on it during starting while it was having the issue and everything is as it should be (i.e fuel pressure is good, all sensors are a go). The diagnostics also confirmed that the engine is perfectly balanced when running, no misfires or anything like that. There is not a single issue while the car is running, it's purely a starting issue. Fuel economy is as good as ever, runs perfectly and the speedo rev counter are accurate. I've gone ahead and replaced both the camshaft and crankshaft sensors now but this hasn't helped at all and it's still happening. I'm confident it's nothing to do with the glow plugs (it started fine mostly during the winter) and the issue happens both during hot and cold. As in, the issue is so intermittent that it can occur after a two hour cruise on the motorway when you stop at a service station, or in the morning. It's seems unrelated to hot or cold ambient or engine temperatures and how long you've left it sitting does make a difference either. Wet or dry doesn't make a difference either. I'm all out of ideas and can't think what else could even begin to cause the issue. It appears to be electrical, but what else is involved in the starting process that could affect it? Any ideas / thoughts / experience of the same issue are all welcome! Just to be clear it's a 57 plate 2.0 TDCi Focus with around 70k on the clock. Thanks Rob
  16. Hello, I am very concerned about our 2017 Ford Focus. My fiancee got an oil change two or three weeks ago, and less than 700 miles later, the oil change alert comes on when starting and the car's engine seems to be juddering when accelerating or driving uphill. We have only had this car for six months! What could possibly be wrong? Has anyone else had this issue? Thanks, Laura.
  17. Hi folks, I'm banging my head against a brick wall on this one. The fact that both side lamps are out of commission suggests its a fault with something common to both circuits as I know the focus side lamp fuse systems are separated into left and right side. Bit of background info: Both side lamps not working - timing of fault unkown New bulbs installed - no fix Checked fuses 124 & 125 - continuity good Power cycled battery (disconnect neg pol, leave 15 mins) - no fix Any ideas as to what else it could be? I've heard iterations of a faulty switch, and to test if there is 12VDC at the light fitting. Still to try the latter Any help / ideas appreciated. I'd like to explore all avenues before spending £££s at a garage. Cheers, Alex
  18. Hi all, I was just wondering if someone could please help me out. I want to look at this car at the weekend but I am worried that it may be too good to be true as it seems very low priced for what it is! Could someone advise me if it's legit or I should be looking elsewhere. Thank you! http://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/201707257710345
  19. Hi everyone, I've searched the forums but I haven't been able to find a topic that is similar to my situation. I'll start off with my car make; Ford Focus MK3, 2013 1.6tdi. ~31,000 miles. I've been having intermittent errors with the car. I've been having the message "Engine malfunction, service now" appear on my dashboard, but then clears after a few seconds. This only happens whilst I'm driving, and has never appeared upon first starting up the car. It usually appears when doing around 60-80mph. Every time this happens, the engine then has limited power; I can put the throttle right the way down but the car won't accelerate, and will stay at around 50mph - I assume this is limp home mode however there is nothing on the dash to indicate that this is so, even though the "engine malfunction" message has cleared. If I turn the ignition off and back on again the engine will be back to normal and I will have acceleration again. I think it's strange how the error message appears for a few seconds and then disappears, however the car still remains in limited power mode. I've also run the self tests however it shows no codes. The issue has been ongoing for a couple of months; it did it maybe once or twice over a period of a couple of months however a few days ago whilst I was driving in very wet and very cold conditions on the motorway it occurred around 10-15 times in the space of an hour, so I suspect the cold conditions might be a factor to this too? I think I also managed to recreate the issue but without the engine malfunction message appearing - the engine would chug quite roughly at around 3.5k revs but I still had the acceleration at lower revs, whereas when the message appears I would not have any acceleration at all. The car had a full service 2 weeks ago, which had all its filers replaced. Any suggestions or help would be very much appreciated! Thanks in advance.
  20. New forum member and first timer poster :) Got a 2009 Ford Focus with a rather old, outdated and glitchy 6000 CD player. Looking for recommendations for a sub-£200 replacement. Doesn't need satnav however ideally does need USD connection, bluetooth, CD player and hands free. Not overly tech saavy but having read a few other similar threads here and elsewhere believe i might need a double din conversion kit as well? Suggestions please oh wise ones...?
  21. Hi all! So! I currently own a fantastic Ford Fiesta Titanium 1.0 Ecoboost 99, which I absolutely love! This engine has plenty of power and go about it. I've recently been looking at replacing my ageing Fiesta and have found a next to new Ford Focus Titanium; with very low mileage, with lots of added extras, everything I like about it and all at a fantastic price! The only doubt I have is it has the same Ecoboost 99 engine as my Fiesta. The mother owns a Focus with this engine and I test drove it and found it a bit more sluggish in the Focus due to the car's additional weight, but only when out of town and received approx 5mpg less. I'm wondering if this engine will struggle with say four people plus luggage in the car? Will I use a lot more fuel working it harder? Would I regret not going for the slightly more sprinted 125 if I go for the Focus I have found with the 99 engine and compared to my nippy Fiesta? Thoughts please? Many thanks!

    Engine System Fault

    Hi All, I am facing problem with my Ford Focus 05 number plate from yesterday. Yesterday evening it shows suddenly "Engine System Fault", then "Acceleration Reduced".... I drive home like 5 miles without any problem but that message was showing.. Then this morning haven't seen any message. But, in the evening coming back home just now had more problem... first shown "Engine System Fault", then suddenly "Malfunction" stuck on the road. Tried couple of times to restart the car... but without any luck... after 5/6 times/minutes...It shows again "Engine System Fault", then "Acceleration Reduced" and I drive back home. Last I haven't seen any message....but showing engine yellow alert light.... I am really worrying what can be the problem.... I have annual ford service booking on 4th July with MOT.... and now this problem.... What should I do ? what is the best option in this scenario ? should I wait for next service 3 weeks time or... book appointment urgently.... but in that case... is it possible or safe to drive the car Will be grateful, if you guys share your experienced opinion for my situation. Thank you in advanced... Zaki

  25. Hi Guys, Today I went to AutoGlass with my Mk2.5 2008 Ford Focus Zetec and had a replacement windscreen fitted under my insurance. After they fitted the new windscreen I noticed the interior lights were no longer working as they should be. At first I was glad to hear they'd be fitting a "like-for-like" windscreen and I would still have my heated clear screen option on the front. I waited almost three hours for the result and at first glance I thought they did a good job. As soon as I got in the car however, my judgement of their workmanship changed, I noticed the interior light was in the center position, only switching on when the doors (or bonnet?) are open.. what was odd about this, was with all the doors closed and the hood latched into place properly, the light would stay on. Before the windscreen replacement, this feature worked perfectly fine. So before I left I wanted the guy to look at it, he dismounted the interior light fitting, which he admitted he needed to do as part of the replacing of the windscreen procedure. His professionalism suddenly broke down at this point and he just gazed at the light, baffled. Having spent some time reading forums via google i've found that the bonnet can trigger the interior lights to come on, if the car thinks the bonnet is open? The interior light, looks perfectly fine and when he dismounted it, it looked fine. So now I only have two settings - ON, or OFF.. Any ideas guys? If I turn the engine on, the dash doesn't tell me any doors are open. I've lifted the bonnet and dropped it shut again securely and that doesn't resolve it either. Thanks, toptoe
