Question

Yesterday I discovered the battery in my Mazda6 (54 reg) was flat, probably because I'd left the side lights on accidentally. The breakdown guy did a jump start and I was able to drive home. Today I discovered that, although the car is driving fine, the buttons on the centre panel (clock and stereo) are not working. In other words, the clock comes on (and the stereo can be switched on) when I turn the car on, but I am not able to reset the clock or re-tune the radio or use the CD player. None of the buttons on the centre panel have any effect (other than the on/off). It's as if some circuit -- through which the centre panel/console controls the clock and stereo -- has developed a fault. What's happened? How can I fix this? Thank you.

Hi I have a 1999 Ford Festiva, every time I use the A/C or demister my battery goes flat.

I can even have my Cd player on without the car running for ages and the battery is still fine. I was wondering if you can please give me any clues to what it could be. Maybe a loose wire and if so where would I find it? Thank you.

Hello. I have a 2004 Ford Focus flight. The airbag light is flashing, 4 flashes, then 2 before staying on. I took it to the local garage who plugged it into their diagnostic reader, and the codes it gave were B2227, B2856, B2855, B2226. The mechanic didn't know what to do to repair it. Is this a simple fault? Will it fail the MoT on this? How much would it cost to repair? I think it might be some sort of connection problem, as this was intermittent before becoming a chronic problem. Thanks very much

Question

Just brought a Fiesta 1.4 Ghia X, R reg (1998) for my wife but the remote central locking does not work. I have no manuals with car but looking on internet there is a procedure to follow that should restore the central locking. Unfortunately this is for a 1996 model but i do have the 2 button remote. I failed to understand the procedure because it's not very clear as whether the car (receiver) is being set up from the key fob for vice versa or both!! It describes pointing the key fob at the receiver in the car but the confusion comes when talking about master keys and or in my case both keys together making up the master!! Could you please help me with the procedure and at the same time explain what it is that is going on so that the procsedure makes sense. Many thanks Jason Warner.

Question

I have a 51 plate, Focus LX 1.8. Recently, when slowing to a stop at a junction and depressing the clutch, the engine revs drop to around 650 - 700 rpm, giving the car a slight judder, as if it's about to stall. Periodically, the above is also accompanied by the battery light flickering on and off on the instrument panel as the car slows and the clutch is depressed. Since this fault started, I've also noticed the radio will often cut out randomly, before coming back on, is this some kind of electrical problem and could it be linked to the above (battery)? Any help much appreciated! Regards, Ian Jones

The blower fan in my 03 Fiesta Zetec 1.4 makes a whining noise. I have noticed it especially since the colder weather and I have had the heat set to high most of the time. Does this mean I need a new blower motor and is this an expensive fix?

I have a 2002 Focus LX and the interior light has stopped working (i think the courtesy light in the boot has also stopped working). I have changed the bulbs and checked all fuses to no avail. Someone has suggested this might be connected to the standard Ford alarm system but I dont believe there is a factory fitted alarm on the car! Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

My daughter has a 55 reg Streetka. She's had it from new and done 9000 miles, full Ford service history. She has had two replacement alternators. She now has a problem where the charge light comes on, the abs light comes on, and the speedometer spins up and down. The garage say it is water ingress and want to charge her hundereds of pounds to cure this. There is no sign of any water ingress. They say they will not replace the alternator again under warranty, or the ecu if that is faulting. What does she do?

If there is no wire to plug into these new fog lights are you able to get the wiring for me, or can you fit it ?

I have a 52 plate Ford Fusion 3 the engine management light came on and i took it back to the garage i bought it from and they said it had a fuel mixture fault it...their diagnostic machine came up with the error codes of PO130 and PO134 they said that they had repaired the fault... its my understanding that the engine management light should come on when the ignition is switched on and goes off after a few seconds when the engine is started...the light now doesn't come on at all...also when i got the car back from the garage i had to reset the clock...to my limited knowledge of the newer computerised functions of the car for the engine management that there is no need to diconnect the battery so i investigated further and found that the instrument panel had been removed and the security sticker damaged..is there any reason the garage would need to do this if it was a "fuel mixture fault"

Hi there. This might seem like a strange question but I am foreman of a Ford dealership service department in Palmerston North, New Zealand. We have a 2006 Focus ST Turbo 3 door here that we imported as we don't sell these new in our local market. I'm not sure if you can help me but we would like to know if these give many problems with the ESP. Our one seems to have very sensitive ESP and interveens very early, alot sooner than you would expect. Is this normal for these? If you are unable to offer me any advice on this do you know of anybody over in the UK I could contact who could help me? Thank you for your time and look forward to hearing from you.
