  2. looks to me like a faulty socket. probably arcing inside. 2a should be more than enough considering the 15a fuse. Do remember though mk1.5's have TWO 12v outlets on the same fuse. did you have anything else in that socket?

  4. MK1.5 1.6 Zetec not idling properly

    Mine does that! start up, revs hang at 2000, then I dip the pedal and it starts to go down to the norm, about 900. sometimes the revs bounce really quickly like 900 to 1000 then 900. like 1,2,1,2,1,2 drives ok. to be fair I want to get my plugs, leads and coilpack changed back to motorcraft one. I feel it's this thats causing it to be not as responsive as I'd like. Also feel a new TPS and ICV would be a good place to start. then reset the ECU.
  5. Poor acceleration

    Yes use only genuine coil packs, and plugs. the focus hates 3rd party ones.
  6. Help 2006 focus 1.6lx non starter non anything

    On this note it is never a good idea to jump the focus. It uses a smart charge system and jumping it will most likely blow it.
  7. Time for Torque! - How To

    Hi mate yes the Escort mk6 does not do OBD unless it is the 1999/2000 flight/finesse models. Those are easy to spot because the dashboard dials are digital and not analogue (has the segment display like the focus)
  8. The Ford Club Random Chat Thread

    anyone remember this video back in the FEC days? still makes me laugh even to this day.
  9. Me and mine.

    nice one looking smart there!
  10. Project TID

    I am staring a little experiment. I sat there in my dads Zafira doign some diagnostics and then a lightbulb moment came. These cars have a display known mainly as TID, MID, GID, DID and CID. ? I hear you say. ID = information display T= triple M= multi G = graphical D = dual C = computer As far as i know I have only seen a DID on a n old corsa, the rest seem to have TID's and MID's, the others being rare. Before we continue I am not going off my head. This is for my Focus. The TID, is a clever little display and it prompts me as to why it took ford so long to develop their own multi display. split into three parts: outside temp, Data, and time. by standard the display will show the date in the data bit, when the radio comes on it blanks and shows the radio station. One of the pins is connected to the blue antenna wire which does the switching. In any case, it uses a fairly similar pinout to the ford focus / escort timeclock. which one could hook up if they made a bezel for it. there are three styles in circulation however. Corsa = This one is in three segments in this order: time | data | thermo astra g = two lines, no seperators, top line is time and thermo, bottom line is data and has an extra 2 characters making it 10 not 8. Zafira A / vectra B = same as the astra G but has an led panel below it for some extra indicators, and the buttons are at the top not the side. The one I will be doing is the Astra G. the focus clock has five wires.Alarm+, 12v perm, 12v switched, illumini, and ground by looking at that chart above Focus --------------- TID 12v switched ------ Pin 1 Ignition 12v perm ---------- Pin 3 duration plus Ground ------------ Pin 6 Dimensions illumini ------------- Pin 4 Locator Lighting Night additionally you will need a temp sensor wired to pins 5 and 7. Pin 9 you dont need as Pin 8 and 2. HOWEVER. recently there is a reprogrammable board called the Arduino, you can program it to talk to the TID. on pins 10,11,and 12 as long as pin 2 is being fed 12V. Knowing the Arduino, you can hook up additional sensors to it. So I would eventually hook up the low washer fluid level sensor, and then when it is low, get the Arduino to ground pin 2, then write "low washer" , then "Fluid Lvl" and scroll it indefinitely until new fluid is in. it is also possible to read the speed digitally too, if you feed the arduino the speed signal
  11. found a photo of my old car.

    Anyone remember this?
  12. found a photo of my old car.

    that was a nice GTi I remember that one well. I can remember Si's (custard) 1.6 finesse. when he planted it on kanes hill roundabout and I was in passenger seat and clung on.
  13. Time for Torque! - How To

    thats funny!

    ha yes the alternate to the IOS. for those on a budget
  15. 2.0 silvertop zetec engine

    if anyone wonders, I use a sweet little program called greenshot. its very good, take a look to see what it does.
  16. 2.0 silvertop zetec engine

    what you gotta do is start a new reply. at the bottom is a button to choose a file, do so. then press 'attach this file' after that the photo is there but not on your thread, so click add to post to insert it like so:
  17. i returned to listening to Namco's music of late this is:- Namco Sound Team - Ridge Racer 1 & 2 Namco HomeTek - Rage Racer Namco Sound Team 2 - Ridge Racer Type 4 Also EA :- EA Sound Team track & field division - Need For Speed 3 Hot Pursuit Namco was more rave style to begin with, before moving techno in rage racer and finally landing up into a lounge/chilled style. NFS3 is more drum and bass/electronica/trance. found my old Colin McRae Rally 3 disc, pleasantly surprised to find the Focus Mk1 on the cover, whipped it in for a quick drive cracking game. RS200 has a number plate of B200 YOO. thought that was funny.
  18. racing videogame soundtrack whats your fave if you have one?

    also take a look at sonicretro.org
  19. racing videogame soundtrack whats your fave if you have one?

    now we are talkin! the sonic generations remix are good
  20. racing videogame soundtrack whats your fave if you have one?

    Good man, lover of the blue hedgehog! did ye know, that Ice Cap Zone was actually an unreleased track by the Jetzons? this is true because the drummer did some composing work for sega and he can be found in the 3 credits. We all know MJ composed most of sonic 3's tracks. if you not heard Sonic Cd tunes give the european versions a blast. i also suggest ocremix.....
  21. renewed effort rs2k 4x4

    nice one! we seems to be having a few FC members having Ex's lately. Lucky for me my GF loves me tinkering with the car and has often offered to clean it! On the build though, lovely to see a rs2k 4x4 on the road again when done.
  22. Progress Thread - Focus Ink 1.6

    it's paying off because the focus is quite neat now, there aren't that many ink's around. From knowledge only a 1 year production run. out of the other specials it does have some unique bits although small. So worth keeping it going. the Chic/Elle versions aren't that special, the collection/millennium are worth more.
  23. As title says I got an advert I'm posting up within work. Part of my PR stunt, but I need to lure them with some bait lol. Who wants their motor on the advert? six cars will be chosen, but we need entrants first and a voting round to proceed. here is how it goes. Monday 10th - Deadline for entrants / voting begins Friday 14th - Voting ends Saturday 15th - people with most votes in descending order (highest to lowest) will be the winner. Target audience 1000 users+, at zero cost to the club. So? who's with me? - technically if one wants to do one for the northern lot..... feel free.... No Club like FordClub,

  25. Progress Thread - Focus Ink 1.6

    The plan for the interior mods Let us begin. the idea here is to move the radio down a little bit to give more room (might buy the connects2 one thats double din, as that has the space already widened.then fit in 3 gauges just above the stereo. if theres enough room, leave the hazard switch where it is, otherwise it will go where the cointray/ashtray is. all switches to be LED changed to blue. keeping the dual colour. (led was green now blue, and was orange now red) Finally clock swap to fiesta one. Then the main dials. Want them to light up dual blue / red, and get the LCD changed to blue. Since my dials are the other ones, i might have a hard time finding the ability to change colour. The radio surround will also be resprayed to matt black. ideally then would like to fit a scangauge in where the stclocks/tripcomputer usually goes but the OBDport stays live even after switching off, there anyway of getting it so that only comes on with the key?
