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?

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

Answers

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

I have had a red warning light coming on, says STEERING MALFUNCTION. When you stop the car it doesn't allow the car to restart. Called the RAC twice. It has been to Ford main dealer and they cannot trace the fault. They replaced the steering lock mechanism last week, and it broke down again on Friday night. It is currently with them, scratching their heads. They have been in contact with Ford Technical who obviously haven't got a clue. HELP

Answer this question

Allison, Tyne and Wear

Ford Galaxy

The engine warning light has come on and will not go out it is yellow colour, ford have told me I need over half a tank of fuel, I did that today and it still is on. Does this light change colour and is it safe to drive, the car was serviced back in December. Can anyone advise what I need to do

Answers

Allison, with the engine management light on the car can be driven, but it needs to be checked and corrected.. what Ford have told you about half a tank of fuel to get rid of engine management light is a load of tosh. Trouble is, there are so many electrical and electronic components that could cause EML (engine management light) to light up, almost impossible to diagnose without hooking up toe OBD computer to access the car's brain.. the ECU. The light is lit but is there a noticeable change for the worst in the performance.. if not, then it is likely (but not certain) that it's something minor.. if you notice poor performance or the engine won't rev over 3000rpm then that is to protect the engine from failure.. THAT needs sorting sooner than later. R Evans from Caerphilly

Kibs1, West Yorkshire

Ford Galaxy

I bough a ford Galaxy Ghia2008 two month ago, recently I have noticed a blowing of blue smoke from exhaust at early start (every morning), when start picking speed up I am getting some kind of hesitation and lost of power from my engine this is happening mostly on 2nd and 3th gear. Also a cloud of light black smoke at any hard acceleration. I spoke to the former owner he confirmed to me that he never had a problem with the car before ....... I run out of ideas and don't know what to do........ Is anyone there know what this problem can be?? Please help. Thank you.

Answers

Hi Kibs.. do a google on blue smoke and black smoke.. masses of info out there. Basically, blue smoke is burning oil and black smoke is soot in the exhaust caused by unburned fuel.. mostly in diesels. Both are potential cause for concern.. burning oil means seals going or gone but they could be piston rings or valve stem oilseals as well as turbo oil seal.. a host of possibilities.. black smoke.. no different really - lots of possibilities from faulty injection, sooted egr valves, carbonised cylinders to something as simple as a dirty air filter, but if all you're seeing is a light black smoke... well that could be quite normal for a 2008 diesel.. stick some fuel additive like redex in the tank and give the car a good run.. so that it gets hot.. have filters and oil changed and see how it then goes. Also consider the seller may have told a few porkies too !! R Evans from Caerphilly

Hi. The auxiliary power outlets do not work. ( cigarette lighters ) and I think its a fuse. There must be another fuse box that I am not aware of because all fuses have been checked. There is a fuse box in the drivers side ( above the knee when I sit in ). There is also a fuse box under the bonnet on the passenger side. These 2 I am aware of but there must be another one hidden somewhere. Can anyone throw some light on this please. Thanks Paul
