Hi there
This is usualy a loose wire. Check the earth wire from the batery to the engin and the body. If that doesn't work, check the fuse box for loose conection also have a look under the dash behind the cluster for any loose conections. Good luck.

Sounds like your alternator is trying to die out on you. Take it to the dealer to check the voltage that it's reading whenever the cars running, and when its not. Also, check the connector wires that connect to the alternator for bad spots. Or to see if the connectors are dirty. Hope this helps, James Booth

My 2005 Fiesta (only 26k miles)air recirc light comes on intermittently and the engine loses power intermittently. What is the problem likely to be? Thanks


AC on the fritz. When the AC clutch engages, it robs a lot of engine power. When you have your heater control on defrost, it engages the AC to dry the air so your windshield doesn't fog. Try unplugging the wiring harness going to the AC pump and see if that helps.

I have ford fiesta, oil getting leaked slightly is it minor or major


Try and get an accurate fix on where its coming from. You may need to beg 5 mins on a garage ramp and a flashlight. They may help you decide if its much to worry about.

Actually you may be losing slight power, but just can't tell. Try going to Autozone and having a FREE diagnostic done.

When I removed my car's battery (in 2 occasions of positive first and also negative first), odometer, fuel meter, temp. meter, trip meter and all other instrument indications got reset. Even after...


normal ,if you disconnect the battery it will lose all the readings as no battery is used on the back of the dash unit .Now if your losing readings without disconnectiing the battery then you may need a new speedo head ,expensive just ignore it who needs to know what the trip meter read anyway

Hi, I have a 52 plate ford fiesta with intermittent speedo problems. Speedo goes off and engine light comes on. Any ideas? Sharon


Hi,

When your Engine Check light comes on, it means your computer has detected a fault and wil have stored the code in your computer. This code can be read by your local Ford dealership, using an OBDII scan tool.

An intermittent speedo problem is probably caused by an issue with the Vehicle Speed sensor (or wiring), which is mounted on your transmission case (see No. 7 in diagram below):

As you have indicated your vehicle is 2011, you should have this issue rectified under the New Car Warranty and repaired at no cost.


Cheers,

Scott

Ford tick over problem


The battery could be slightly weak, making the computer go on the fritz, try a fresh battery!!!! The rev counters bounce often with a weak battery.

Leave feedback good or bad.
