This car is an 08 model with a 1.4 petrol engine registered 59 with 32,000miles on the clock. What seems like petrol fumes is coming in the cab. I can't see anything obvious, but I was wondering if the injector seals are a known problem like they are on the 1.4 diesel, or should I be looking elsewhere.

I brought a Ford Fiesta Zetec 1.4, 2005 plate about 2 weeks ago. I noticed when my husband reversed it into the drive the right side reversing light was not working. I took it to Halfords to get the bulb replaced, assuming that was the problem. They said that some cars only have one reversing light. The reversing light is one side and the back fog light is on the other side. Does anyone know if this type of Fiesta does only have one reserving light? Many thanks for any help given.

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?
