My son's Galaxy is losing water and there are no tell tale signs of a leak i.e. water in the engine compartment or under the car. The needle on the temperature gauge is very near or on the red. He had some work done on the car recently which involved the coolant system which involved fitting a new Housing and Sensor. He is having to top up the system by adding 2/3 litres of water on a daily basis and most of his journeys are short journeys. Any ideas please? Could it be a faulty thermostat?

I own a Galaxy mk3 (2006 -2010 model) I have some problems with left indicator lights. If i turn the left indicator or press the hazard button the side indicator on the left not working except the light in the wing mirror. The clicking noise and left green arrow in the dashboard are working at fast rate like when you have a bulb gone. Checked all fuses and bulbs and all of them are good. I think the indicator stalk faulty is ruled out as the symptoms are the same when I press the hazard button. The left hand side relay if there is any also ruled out due to mirror light working blinking rapidly but at least working. I am completely stumped, any ideas please? Thank you!

Hi, we have a 56 plate Galaxy TDi, we have had a problem that the battery is draining for what we can find no reason, we had the car put on a computer that showed up that the Body Control Module was faulty, so we sent it off to BBA Reman who have found no fault with it. We have put the Module back on the car and now we have no life in the dashboard, the car starts but we have no dashboard lights and speedometer etc, does anyone have any suggestions we are desparately to sort this.

We had issues with our heated windscreen fusing out a couple of months ago, and now the whole of the driver's side electrics have gone, inc all interior lighting. The electric windows on the passenger side still work. Cannot seem to find any help online at all and the diagrams all seem to relate to Ford Mondeos. Anyone have any ideas?

My Ford Galaxy drives fine but with not enough power and going up hills is even worse. On the other day the amber light of the engine came on, took it to garage and they said it was low boost and the light turned off. Today I went out and the light came on again and still with no power.

my galaxy ran great high mileage but no probs then started cutting out then glow plug light stopped coming on she wouldnt start i had it wired fuel solenoid to fuse box and it starts all the time but without wire heater plug light wont come on, put wire back in she would take you to europe and back anyone any ideas wired solenoid up as that was the fault came up on computer
i should explain better maybe my car has high miles but frives very well then one day she started cutting out while driving , ok inconvenient but still went then one day it refused to start, i did notice that the heater plug light wasnt coming on it always did, my friend wired the stop start solenoid on the diesel pump and it ran after that , it still is, now computer was put on it said at first nothing alls well,, then it said key , new key , no use still wouldnt start then it said the solenoid on pump, it was bought new , nope , heater lights still wouldnt come on turned it for a while nothing, put its wire back on and as usual it runs great but not as fast as it did but hey , it even passed its mot like that , any ideas anyone mots till september but may let it go for spares if cant get it right its an x reg 1.9 tdi log book says 110 or something like that , its not as powerfull but drives still good on fuel never overheats its just a nuisance as i dont like wires that dont need to be there patrick mc keane from East Ayrshire

We have had problems starting car so changed glow plugs and got a new battery now when you turn key all central locking windows and lights and dash work but car won't turn over you get nothing what could be wrong
rather unusual and a little unlikely.. but still possible.. that when the battery was changed it could have caused a short and blown one of the engine control fuses at the battery.. many vehicles (not sure if the Galaxy is one) have a number of fusible lines coming straight off the battery. I know my van has four or five... and one feeds power to the starting system. Worth checking. R Evans from Caerphilly

is there a design fault with the windscreen mouldings as ours keep blowing off? it costs £54.00 to be repaired and this should not be repeatedly happening on such a new vehicle. please can you advise. the part number is 1773613 we now need to have the opposite side replaced. thank you
