  1. Hi all, it's my first time on the forums so bear with me. I recently replaced the PCM, Cluster, halo, and the transponder inside my key with a working, tested and coded kit I bought on ebay from a Ford breaker. When trying to start my car, my immobiliser rapidly flashes and my cluster displays "engine systems fault", and the light soon blinks a 1:6 code indicating a connection issue between the cluster and the PCM. The car refuses to prime or to crank over at all, and I can't read any on-board codes with an ELM327 OBDII scanner connected to my laptop using FORScan, as it fails to connect to the car. I have also tried pressing around the '2' area on the rev counter of the cluster. As the car was originally sent off to a garage to be repaired and was sat there for months, the battery is completely flat so I have to jump the car every single time I want to do something with it. I have checked the connection on the cluster and it's properly seated, while the PCM connector is on as tight as I can get it with the shearing bolt still in place (there's maybe 5-10mm gap between the base and the connector). I have checked all the fuses to check for breaks, and all of them seem to be intact. What I find strange is that despite replacing all the coded parts in my Focus with the kit from ebay, the original fob responds to the car as opposed to the new fob that came with the new parts and that is coded to the new parts. Surely the original fob shouldn't be recognised as the original parts coded to the original fob are all gone? I have no idea what else to try and I've run out of options. If anyone has any ideas or suggestions, please feel free to write back.

  3. Hi all, In a similar style to the MK1 Focus thread I started yesterday I am also looking for common problems on MK2 Focus models. I will also be looking to eventually put together a buyers guide for these models so any feedback you could give would be much appreciated! :) James
  4. Apologies in advance for the length of this post but there are a lot of issues to resolve and I’d really appreciate some advice, guidance and comments. This is my 2006 Focus Zetec Climate 2.0, Eve. I want to fit an ST body kit and get her looking fabulous once again. I got her in July 2006 with 6,000 miles on the clock, in seemingly immaculate condition. She’s now done 62,000 miles and is looking a little battered and bruised but is a great car, mechanically sound and very reliable. Here’s a tour of her various issues… The front bumper took a nasty wack and also has some scuffing on the corner: Options to fix: replace with either a new or salvaged ST bumper. The bonnet has a weird dent on the right hand ridge and four rusting stone chips: Options to fix: get it repaired by a body shop or replace with a salvaged bonnet. We had a fight with a multi-storey car park. We lost. The rear passenger side door is a mess: Options to fix: get it repaired by a body shop or replace with a salvaged door (I’d need to retain my current trim and speaker). The rear wheel arch also took some of the pain: Options to fix: get it repaired by a body shop. I reversed into a stupid hand rail in a hospital car park and created this lovely dent: Options to fix: replace with a salvaged tailgate (I think the dent is too close to the edge for a body shop to easily rectify). The rear bumper has a little scuff too: Options to fix: replace with either a new or salvaged ST bumper (I need to retain the reversing sensors). The rear pillar has some deterioration to the paintwork which has become gradually more apparent over the last few years. I guess there was a small touch-up job done here prior to me owning the car: Options to fix: get it repainted at a body shop or do nothing. The rear driver’s side door has two nasty stone chips, the one by the door handle has dented the panel. Options to fix: get it repaired by a body shop or replace with a salvaged door (I need to retain the trim and speaker). As additional issues, I’d like to replace the standard spoiler with an ST, add side skirts (which may cover up some of the damage to the wheel arch) and tidy up my wheels – I’m contemplating getting them painted black rather than replacing them. As I’ve been thinking my way through this project I think I’ve come to the conclusion that I should get the car vinyl wrapped. This would help with a number of the above issues and (as long as I had neat panels underneath) would give the car an “as new” appearance. I think my plan should be as follows: 1 - get quotes from a body shop for repair prices for the wheel arch, doors and bonnet. If I’m wrapping then paint finish isn’t important, I just need clean, dent free panels. Any recommendations of body shops in North London, Herts, Essex? 2 – source replacement parts that can’t be repaired economically in stage 1. Parts I may need: bonnet, 2 x rear doors, tailgate, ST front bumper and grille, ST rear bumper, ST spoiler, ST side skirts. If I wrap the car, it doesn’t matter so much what colour the replacement parts are… my gut feeling is that I should go for black doors and tailgate and worry less about the rest. I assume using salvaged parts would be considerably cheaper than new, can anyone give me a rough guide as to what I should expect to pay. Where are the best places to find parts? 3 – fit it all. I’m a proficient DIYer but not experienced with fiddling around with cars. I’ve got a decent tool kit and a Haynes manual, what can go wrong? From what I’ve researched so far I think I should be able to replace all of the various body parts (although I am a little nervous). 4 – get it wrapped. I’ve got a budget for all this of around £2,000. Thank you if you’ve made it this far! I really appreciate your time and any assistance you can offer. Dan
  5. This is the build log of my current build. As this is my first car my insurance is rather high (£2500 Per Year With a Black Box) so I won't be doing any heavy modifications to it. So far I have only changed the Aircon knobs as a way to tell myself to get a move on. I'm currently part way through changing out the boot bulb for a LED strip on each side so I can get some cool white light into my boot at night. I'll upload some photos as It gets dark tonight. I have some big plans for this car and it's going to do some great things including these that I created on a word document that I'll try to keep updated.
  6. Bit of an odd one this... Does anyone happen to have a PDF (or print copy at a push) of a 2010 Focus MK2.5 Price list? I'm wondering how much my MK2.5 Focus Zetec would have set the original owner back as list price when it was new.
  7. Hi all, Can anyone advise please if front and rear full bumpers or bumper extensions designed for Mk2 Facelift Focus' can fit on pre Facelift models? I have a 2006 Focus Mk2 Sport looking in to doing some first time modding. Any help appreciated
  8. Hello! Currently in the process of ordering parts to turbo my Focus MK 2! Does anyone recommend any prebuilt Turbo manifolds or is it going to be a case of custom make?
  9. After advising a member on fitting footwell lights I decided a reasonably definitive guide (from my point of view) was likely to be useful. Download, print, use and enjoy Guys/Gals. Fitting footwell lights to your car.pdf
  10. hello, i currently have a 1.6 tdci, its remapped and has a k&n airfilter on and a straight pipe exhaust (still has decat) i believe its on the round about 136+ mark but dont have a solid number as never dyno'ed it, i want to upgrade my turbo to a hybrid turbo but i want to know if anyone else has advice etc on it and can point me to right parts to upgrade and prices etc please ?

    Mk2 Focus 2.0TDCI -Issues

    Hi, I hope someone can help me.. I have a 2007 mk2 focus 2.0TDCI, it runs ok most of the time but it will often go into limp mode and the turbo cuts out (one or the other normally, but can come together). The engine light does come on often on reset after limp mode, (turning off and on again gets rid of the limp). the engine fault code reads DPF Ash Accumulation. I have changed the DPF, EGR valve, DPF pressure sensor, all coming in around £1000 so getting frustrated now. the only think I can think now is a wiring loom chafing or the hoses for the pressure sensor, but haven't checked yet. the only other thing to not is that every now and then when holding at a constant rev, like on the motorway, it can have a jumpy ride for a couple of seconds, but this clears if you give it a little more throttle. Have noticed that the turbo seems to slowly cut out as well, maybe when the car is warmed up? this doesn't clear when you reboot the car as it does with limp mode. Help!! Thanks
  12. I have for sale a 2 door cortina GT. During my last road trip to Greece , I came across this fantastic 2 door ford Cortina GT mark 2. The owner told me the car has been off the road since 2007.He imported the car to Greece in 1977 and he was driving the car daily for 30 years. I've been told that when he left the car in 2007, it was running. He said the engine should be ok , but this hasn't been tested by me. In addition he explained there is a leak in the fuel tank so caution needed in this area. The original log book shows that the first registration is 1977 , so I dont know what the exact year of manufacture is and also states that is a cortina lotus 175 GT. The car is in need of full restoration , interior is in good condition. I have attached pictures for you to look at. For anymore information and more photos dont hesitate to contact me - 0775 676 8703 Petros

    Brake Fluid re-fill

    Hi, Just checked my oil and noticed the brake fluid container hidden at the back under the windscreen was low. It's very close, if not on the Min line. Brakes, clutch etc still running/feeling fine and no lights! I've downloaded a Focus manual but not 100% its correct for the UK spec as it has a lot of US references. Does anyone know what type/level/grade of brake fluid I'll need for a 06 plate MK2 1.6 petrol Focus LX. Thanks!
  14. Late MK2 & Mk2.5 Fuseboards and Fuses.pdf
  15. Hi CAR: 2008 Mk2 Ford Focus 1.6tdci Zetec, 94k, FSH. ISSUE: Went into limp mode, diagnosed as DPF codes. PRIOR TO ISSUE: very good running order with full service from Ford and some reputable garages. Returned average 55mpg. DURING ISSUE: Ran car approx 800 miles in limp more without any problems other than the usual lack of power. Returned average 35mpg. ACTION: Finally got round to major service including (new) timing belt, water pump, full service, glow plugs, DPF, EGR and ECU & manual regen. Injector cleaner/fuel additive may have been added by the garage but not too sure. (BTW - the initial problem stemmed from failing glow plugs that got masked by the DPF codes. The DPF was absolutely fine but because the glow plugs weren't picked up in the codes the DPF got clogged and then ironically failed too). RESULT: after the works the car drives like new car with max power. However the fuel consumption/mpg is still averaging the 35 mpg mark. THE QUESTION: WHY??? Any help, advice or guidance would help me stop me the scratching of my head especially having forked out £800 on parts and labour :/ Q

  18. Hi, I'm not sure if I have seen FRONT camber kit for the Focus Mk2 or Mk2.5, and I would appreciate some inputs or feedback from those who've actually installed one in their cars. If yes, could you possibly link me to a vendor (or vendors) who might be selling the same. Thanks!

    MK2 revs

    Hi, I've recently got a MK2 1.6 LX and I'm not sure if the revs are high or standard. When I'm in fifth doing 70 it's at 3,200 which is about 2-300 more than my old 1.6 MK1 Zetec did. Is this at the right level or does it need adjusting?
  21. I have consistent problems with my Bonnet release on my Ford Focus Mark 2. It's the sliding rod type. While getting the parts to repair it for the third time I came across this alloy version on AliExpress. I just wondered if anyone had tried this? And if so did it improve the reliability of the bonnet release, or is it just a shiny gimmick? Any feedback much appreciated!
  22. Hi I had a look at removing a focus mk2 windscreen today. Could do with a little advise before I continue though. I have got the wire to cut through the adhesive. Do you need to take the trim on the edge of the screen out first.i tried to do this, but it kept breaking off. Not sure if it should come out with the screen, or to take it out first. I' assuming a new screen doesn' come with the trim on it. Just wondered if anyone had any experience in this area. I would be great full of anyone' input.

  24. hi everyone, I'm quite new to the site and wondered if anyone could help with a problem, I have an 2007 3dr focus 1.8 climate and since I bought the car 2 months ago the air con hasn't worked. I thought it just needed a re-gas but i've had that done and it still doesn't work. a mate of mine has had a quick look and has said the clutch on the compressor isn't engaging, and there is no power at the pump. after reading a few threads I'm thinking it could be the low pressure sensor, now ive checked the wiring on both high and low sensors and couldn't find any problems but I didn't want to change them as I would loose the gas in the system.is there a way of checking if the sensors are the problem without changing them ? I do have forscan and a modified elm327 usb
  25. Hi all, Looks like my driver seat (or frame?) is broken, it moves into the bottom left corner if pressed. If you get out the car and move the seat it moves into that bottom left corner. Does anyone know what to check and how to check it and how to go about fixing this problem? Thanks
