My partner`s 04 Ford Fiesta has recently started jumping whilst being driven. He says it's literally like a kangaroo! Does anyone have any idea what has caused this or what could be causing it? He's getting a mechanical friend to view the car asap but just in case the car needs to go under a bigger inspection I wondered if anyone on here knew anything about this?

Answer this question

Chris, Northamptonshire

Ford Fiesta

Hi all. I have two electrical problems I need help with, both have been driving me nuts for a year now. First; my door warning light has always been on since I changed my lighter fuse a year ago. I have put the car into service mode and all four doors and boot send a signal showing that they are working. I have been told that the bonnet may have a sensor, I looked and found a wire but not sure if it`s what I need, could be the release cable. This problem affects more than the light because the lights always on my battery have low voltage which causes my dash to rest which knocks my clock out every time I start the car. My indicator lights don't flash any more when I lock the car and I cannot have my interior light set to 'on' as the light will always stay on. Second; my speedo is forever cutting out. Sometimes it will just be the speedo that goes off for a few minutes, other times it will go off with the odometer which can last over a week. I know for a fact that it`s the speed sensor as the car does not have ABS, however I have tried to remove the old sensor but the pin holding it in is so rusted and jammed that it cannot be removed. I`ve been told that the gearbox can be taken out and the pin drilled out but I`m not paying garage prices for that. My engine light has been on three times for the speedo and I could clear it with a fault code reader but now this time it will not clear. So two warning lights on. Any advice please?

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?

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
