Question about Ford Granada

1 Answer

I have a 2001 Y reg 2.0 litre Ford Mondeo Ghia X and I have a problem with the battery. If I don't use the car for one or two days, the battery goes flat and will not start the engine. The AA has replaced the battery for a new one - also they cannot detect any current leakage from the battery. I've checked that all the courtesy lights have gone off when the car is in the garage. It may be relevant to note that on a couple of occasions, but not consistently, the driver's side rear door hasn't locked when the car has been locked using the remote key fob. What do you suggest to locate and solve the problem? Ian Garnett

1. Check out if the tailgate switch will turns OFF the tailgate interior lamp after closing the tailgate. Replace switch if necessary.
2. Let the car unlocked inside the garage with all doors closed, and see if the problem still occurs after one or two days. If not, the driver's side rear door locking mechanism is bad and need to be repaired or replaced.
3. If the problem still occurs use a multimeter and measure if the electrical system of the car does have electrical power leakages causing battery flat. If the car does have an alarm system this is the first device suspect. Remove the alarm system out from the electrical circuit of the car, and see if the problem still occurs after one or two days.

Mondeo brake discs getting thin

it's not dangerous to the point you will not be able to stop how ever the longer you wait to replace the pads the more damage it will cause to the rotor which will cost more to replace. the sonner you replace the pads the less expensive it will be.
