  2. Aux not working

    Hi, my aux isnt working in my fiesta 09. It has worked previously but just noticed that it isn't now. The aux button doesn't do anything when pressed. When i go through the menu and press aux that doesn't do anything either just goes back to the radio or cd. My bluetooth still works. Any suggestions would be appreciated! Cheers :)
  3. Hi, I have a Ford KA and for the past couple of weeks I have been getting a message come up on the screen which displays the date and miles saying"insufficient oil pressure please stop and turn around" It has been okay and I have been driving it and it has been fine. Except for today it has came up 3 times and I don't know what to do? I have googled it and a lot of people are saying to check the oil, which my dad is doing, but then some people are saying it is more serious? Help????
  4. Electrical draw

    Hi, the car is a Ford Focus mk2 1.8 tdci. Had the car little over 2 years, since day one something was not write electrically. Little things like if you indercate left it displays a message blinking at you reading”passenger door open” same again for if you put the rear window heater on .. same massage . Now the last 18 months I’ve noticed the clocks don’t turn off (permanently displaying the time and my mileage) . And had the battery dying on me if it’s not driven within 12hours . I’ve changed the battery twice and had a brand new alternator. I was also advised to get my instrument cluster (clocks) referbed as the garage was adamant they where the problem. No joy there either. Any body have any knowledge on this problem as I’ve seen a few people have similar issues but no one seems to post if they’ve fixed the issue or not. Thanks in advance. D.
  5. Hi guys just recently purchased a 2011 Focus mk2.5 Zetec S from the UK, got a good deal and the spec is nice compared to my last focus zetec. I hate the Zetec S rear diffuser and was wondering does anyone know if the one pictured will fit or do yous know anywhere I could get one similar. The black focus is the one I have. Thanks
  6. Hi all! ive been a bit of a ghost as of late, but finally back onto messing around with my car! I changed my headlights today (first time, which probably explains the damage I caused..) but I managed to snap the little clip on the headlight connector. I don’t have a photo at the minute, but it’s the connector that plugs into the headlight in the engine bay. Will this cause any massive issues? It seems pretty comfortable in there, but if I can get that clip replaced ideally I’d like to do that! any recommendations would be great!
  7. Looking for a little help here... can anyone explain to me how I add the mods I've done to my car so they show up when I reply to posts, etc? I've noticed a few members have at the bottom of thier name a list of mods, previous, cars, etc, but I'm not sure how to add this information. Would appreciate any help, tips on how I do this...thought it would have been in the edit profile area but can't seem to find the right section. thanks again
  8. Hi guys new to this so sorry if this is posted in the wrong place. I have a 2015 mk3.5 focus st3 which I bought just before Christmas and it's been mega I absolutely love it but about a week ago I noticed it started to stutter at random intervals and it's very intermittent. It seems to do it most under firm acceleration when the boost pressure gauge is at about .5, it feels like the fuel gets cut for a second and then it carries on as normal. And it seems to be doing it a bit more regular as time goes on. No error codes have been logged. I'm going to ring my local deal this weekend, but thought I would ask here first to see if anyone has any idea of what it could be?
  9. Fiesta titanium

    Hi guys, just reaching out out to anyone who make have the same car as myself, or to the gurus of the page. i have a 2009 fiesta titanium, which is a great little car, but I am noticing things that don’t look right! Firstly the range off a full tank is shocking 275 miles, when i was told it should do a lot more than that, also the gear shift Indicator. I have it on my dash board but it won’t work? Now I thought it diddnt come with my car, 2010 models have it but mines was January 2009 when it was made! Sorry if this thread has ever came up before, I’m new to this site so not had a good look round. thank guys paul
  10. Hi all. I have just imported a low mileage, one owner, 3 door 1.25 duratec in from Italy. Im just in the process of getting it ready for its first UK mot to get it registered, headlights are done. The speedo is is KPH only so I thought I’d go for a conversion plate to change the face rather than faff about changing it, however I’ve changed the faceplate and the revs and speed are all over the place and the aftermarket look of the product is naff so I’m going to use a UK spec 2nd hand unit that does mph and kph and retain the factory look, does anybody know someone other than the local ford dealer that can reprogramme the unit to the car and change the mileage to the same that’s on my European unit please? any advice would be helpful please cheers nick

  12. Hiya, So I'm absolutely beside myself. I left my car down a main road whilst I went to work today and came back to see someone had jumped all over it and dented it. The picture doesn't do justice of how many dents there are due to the frost covering it.. it's pretty bad. I'm 21 years old and my parents gave me this car as a present.. I know its nothing special but I was incredibly grateful to have it. I'm in education till I'm 26 and there's no way I can pay for this myself.. I doubt I can afford to go through insurance and all the aggro that will cause. I'm honestly so upset I really looked after my car as I was so appreciative. Any idea how much this will cost to fix? I'm so upset that I looked after it just for some horrible people to go and do that.
  13. hello, am currently looking at an array of fiestas. ranging from 09 to 15/16 plate. the one I am honestly considering buying is a 2010 with the older red look hud and radio system. so my question is does the newer sony dab system from say a 13 or 15 plate fit the older model cars. and are they fairly straight forward to fit. as I do like the idea of having Bluetooth connectivity and much prefer the system of the newer ones. but obviously the cost of a newer car is higher. so am just weighing up. but would just like to know if it is even possible.
  14. Hi my mk1 Sierra 1.6 pinto keeps cutting out on me when I’m slowing down at junctions and I can’t fully close the choke if anyone as any info that could help be much appreciated
  15. Right, I am a total newbie so please speak in layman's terms! I've seen a lot of people with colour coded engine bays (i.e. all the parts, or at least most, are the same colour, e.g. red) and I was wondering if anyone could give me any advice on how to go about this and maybe some links? I'm also looking at getting dark style headlights and tail lights if anyone can give me some advice! Edit: I have a 2016 fiesta zetec s 1.0 ecoboost, I don't care it's not the fastest thing in the world, I like it and want to have a play around :) Thanks in advance! :)
  16. Hey guys new to forum just puschased a 2011 mondeo titanium and I’m in need for a parcel shelf (hatchback) will any of the mk 4 parcel shelf’s fit it seen as tho it’s the facelift one thanks
  17. Hi guys, Found a nice set of 17' alloys online and was wondering if they'd fit my 2015 Ford Fiesta which currently has the standard wheels on it. If so would they cause any problems and would I need to get the speedometer recalibrated?
  18. Hi, I am looking at getting a second hand fiesta st180 but can' decide on blue or black. I kind of want to be different as blue is most common and popular but I hear black can be hard to keep clean and shows scratches and chips easier? I'll do my best to look after it just thinking long term... would help if people with these colours or have had them can share their opinion! Thanks!! 😁

  21. Hi, I've got a mk7 Fiesta and want to fit LED halo rings onto the fog surrounds. I have seen a few places I can buy them but my question is how easy are they to fit? I' hoping someone who has already done them can help me out!

  22. Hi guys (and gals), Got a problem with my 2008 Ford Focus mk2.5, the outside/ambient temperature sensor isn't giving a reading and the red snowflake is permanently on the dash. I would usually just swap the sensor out for a new one (which I still may). But I know that usually when the sensor fails, it gives a stupid reading instead of just nothing. Is there a fuse for the ABT that I can check? Or anything else obvious before I swap the sensor? Thanks in advance! P.S how can I see photos in other posts? It just comes up 'photobucket p500' in the photo window?
  23. Hi guys, it's my first post on the forums and I wish it was a better one. I bought a 2008 MK2.5 1.8tcdi focus around 3 weeks ago and it broke down today I got a check engine light about 30 miles ago and today pulling out of the driveway I got the warning chime and a readout saying power steering failure. Then the car shut down and there has being no power since, not even central locking or interior/dash lights. When I had a look under the bonnet here was smoke, possibly from the alternator. Has anyone experienced something similar?
  24. I have a Ford FiestaLX 2003 petrol. It's getting pretty cold now and the last 2 days my car has not been starting properly. When I start the engine the revs go up and then normally they drop down to about 1, but at the moment they go all the way to 0 and the car doesn't start. the only way I can get the car moving is by using the accelerator to force more revs so it will move. however, when I stop the car at the junction right by my house, it doesn't stall, it just stops. I have no idea what the problem could be, a friend of mine suggested it could be the choke, but I don't know where the choke is on my car. any help would be much appreciated. Cheers, Louie
  25. Hi, I am looking for some information/advice on the removal of the old and installation of the new cambelt on my 2008 mk 2.5 VVTi Focus, and where to purchase the bits from. I've heard somewhere your'e supposed to change the cam pulleys on the VVTi engine, and a few bolts that are one time use. If anyone can shed some light on this for me it would be much appreciated! Thanks, Jordan
