Question about Ford Fiesta

Open Question

Engine light repeatedly comes on Ford Fiesta Zetec 2002 1.4, when this happens the car loses power and on the dashboard the letters 'EAC' appear on the computer. It has been repeatedly been in a garage and the garages computer shows there is no fault, they have changed sensors, spark plugs and leads, the catalitic converter adn this is still occuring. We also had the clutch replaced earlier in the year, which is when the problems began.

Hi there!

A few more things to check for you.-

A vacuum leak in any of the vacuum hoses will cause the ECU to make random guesses at what's going on.

Have you replaced plugs recently - or at all? This is probably the main cause - and certainly worth a try.

Fuel filter should be replaced at recommended intervals - about 3 years.

Clean your leads and HT gear really well with a degreasant. Any losses will be more noticable at tickover than high revs.

Lastly.........wear on cam lobes or timing belt.

Hope it's cheap for you!
Please spare a moment to rate as fixya! if any of this information proves useful. Thanks (I don't get paid for this)

SOURCE: Fitting brake light - fiesta zetec

There is also a push in socket at the top of the light and a clip at the bottom. When the screws are all undone insert a flat screw driver under the light fitting about 4 inches from the top (remember to use a cloth under the edge of the screwdriver to avoid marking the paintwork) you should be able to push it out now.

The code for a fiesta zetec 2005 radio


The radio SERIAL NUMBER will be required for calculating a code

On some radios, pressing Buttons 6 and 1 or 6 and 2 (together) may display a Serial Number.

If not , then remove the radio from the dashboard.


Then post the radio make model plus all the letters numbers on any labels,barcodes or stamped in the metal casing.

This information can then be used to see if a code can be calculated

Loss of power and usings lot's of fuel!


Hi
Most likely that will be your EGR valve, thats "Exhaust Gas Recycler" valve, it basically forces any unburnt fuel back into the engine to re-burn thus cuts the emissions. when they go you will lose a lot of power and the car will almost feel like it is twice as heavy. you can clean this part with carb cleaner and it may work again, It is strange how your ford dealer have not picked it up.

Does the engine light come on at all?

Also other thing it could be your air mass sensor, agaian you can clean this and it may still work, this part regulates the air to mix with the fuel you would lose power with this also and the car would hold back.

Let me know if you need specifics.

Regards
Dan

EAC FAIL FORD FUSION 03


I have an EAC failure on my wifes 53 reg Fusion 1.4 and it's been off the road for 2 months. An independent check showed fault code P2135, which relates to the throttle body but fitting a body from a healthy Fiesta with the same engine didn't solve the problem. I was advised to check wiring to the body but all seemed OK. Took car to Ford who stated that the car needs an updated body and wiring and the parts are on back order with first delivery not due until Jan 2010! Why the car won't work with replacement original parts is a mystery. I'm very disappointed with Ford. Sorry this doesn't solve the problem but hope it clarifies the situation. Have logged this on other websites and with BBC Watchdog!

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.

Ford Fusion 04 Engine Management Light


I had a 2002 model 1.4 Fiesta, same problem Engine management light or ECA, electronic accelaration Control (EAC), it needs a ford dealer to do a computer diagnostic, most likely that it will need replaced.

Mt friend who is a mechanic for ford said that it was a common factory fault and is very common in 1.4 zetec /duratec petrol models.

I now have a 2007 Fusion and was quick to see if this problem had been sorted on this model, and it has!!

Hope this helps!!
