Can anyone help? I have a 59 plate ztec and ever since I've bought it, the car alarm is continuously going off from the second day of purchase. I took it back to the dealership and they kept it for a week claiming at first they couldn't find a problem with it. Towards the end of the week they phoned to say they has fixed the problem. It was fine for about a month but now it has started doing it again to the point where I have to leave my car unlocked all the while. It's out of warrantee with the dealership. Any ideas ?!?

when the switch to the headlight is on zero i still get the headlights on only at the front ones and not the back if i switch the light on the next switch the very small dim lights come on and if i switch the 3rd dial then the light is full beam, what is wrong why do the lights not switch off when on zero dial. when i lock the door by pressing the key lock why don't the headlights and back lights flash.

In the last few weeks my car has been doing some odd things. 1. It would not start but was turning over. I left it for an hour, came back to try it and it started okay. This has not happened since. 2. I now notice the central looking makes a noise as if it was locking but the car starts ok. When it makes that locking sound I let the window down to see if it has locked from the outside but it has not. Would be obliged if I can get help? thank you.

I have it booked in next Tuesday at a Ford dealer to have a look but would like to know if bearings are covered in the 3 year warranty?

I was driving this afternoon parked the car and turned off the ignition forgot to put the electric window up then restarted the car but when I tried to close the window it wouldn't work. After 5 minutes it worked. It happened again later on in the day but the second time the window button didnt work so now its stuck open (about 1 inch) , the lights arent on on the actual window button in the door, is this the fuse or something else?

Answers

Sounds like it's the window motor. Bang on the inside bottom left of the door card. Try again. If this does not work, check for blown fuses. Johnathan Jones from Monmouthshire
