Answer this question

Rachael, Derbyshire

Ford Fiesta

Does anyone have any ideas? Since I had car problems and my car was towed away and fixed, my car will go to start up, but won't start. Instead the red alarm light flashes really fast and my window wipers front and back start to wipe. I then have to take the key out of the ignition and wait for about 30 seconds, then try and start the car up. Most of the time this works. We thought it was the battery and then we thought it was an electrical surge, but the car`s been put on a computer and it says the battery is good and there is no electrical surge. My car is a 57 plate Ford Fiesta Zetec. I have read my manual and the only other conclusion is the car is not recognising the key and thinks it's being stolen. Can anyone help and think it might be something else? Thanks

I just bought the car from a Ford dealer in Edgeware, Middlesex and this is the first night I brought it home. The alarm went off at 11pm, then 3am then 4am for no apparent reason. Looking at it this morning, I just noticed the display says the bonnet is open but it is definately shut. I tried pressing the lock button twice this morning wondering if this will cure the infrequent alarm tripping. Can you help?

Recently I`ve noticed that when I leave my lights on and open the door it no longer beeps to tell me my lights are on and I`ve ended up flattening my battery. Any ideas please? Also not sure if this is linked but whenever I get back into my car my clock resets to 1am and the date back to 2008 which I assume was the date the car was first registered, also the trip resets to zero, this is whenever I take the keys out of the ignition. Any ideas please guys?

I cut the ones off in the engine bay first and it started, then I cut the ones in the inside and only the ones going to back all dash wiring are still there and it did not start, so then I connected all the wires I cut and it still will not start?

ford fiesta over-revs the Mrs has a 1.4 zetec, which would not idle always at 2000 rpm the slowly dropped down to 700 and was missing until it passed 1100 rpm. i changed the pipes under the inlet, idle valve and throttle pot check all hose to the air box. Still the same , so i took off the throttle body again, i noticed there was some corrosion on the face. i used a piece of flat glass and some fine emery paper the removed and corrosion until it was flat, then i greased the rubber seal and refitted the plate. Also where the throttle pot fits i put some grease on the spindle and a smear around the sensor and refitted it, whilst its not 100% it cured it to about 95% and is more drive able it may help steve calvert from Lancashire

Hi i recently brought a fiesta zetec s 1.6 x reg. For some reason the indicators and hazards dont work. Everything else on the stick.works i.e lights so it isnt the stick ..when i lock the car and put the alarm.on the indicators and lights flash so they work accept the front left. Possibly a bulb. The fuse has been changed . Could it be a relay ?? Also when i get above speeds of.60 it tends to get really hot but the oil level is low . Could that be the problem?? Thanks

When reversing my Fiesta at very low speed the car stalls and a loud bang sounds. The vehicle stalls and sticks in reverse gear. To get the vehicle out of reverse I have to re-press the clutch and force it back into neutral. If I then restart the vehicle and drive as normal it`s ok. I'm worried this may turn into something serious? Many Thanks Jason

I drove my car for about 15 minutes and after coming to a stop and getting out I couldn't lock the door with the fob. There was no response from the key fob at all. I got back into the car and noticed the car was completely dead, I couldn't start the engine and the radio that normally work on its own also wouldn't work. I left the car for about an hour and tried again and everything was fine and back to normal. Worried that this could happen again especially if I am far from home. Any ideas why this happened?

Try changing your numberplate bulbs, I had the same problem and it turned out it was because I had replaced my bulbs with LEDs. Once I'd changed them back my number plate and dashboard lights started working again. Tonyryan from Merseyside
