Hello, I have a 54 plate mondeo st220, I have had the car for 2 weeks now. Yesterday I wired a sub and amp to the car which works fine. 30 minutes later my engine management light came on and the idle revs now fluctuates from 600 rpm upto a 1000 rpm. It was sitting nicely at 750 rpm before I fitted the sub and amp. I have now taken the sub and amp out and the car now idles at 750 rpm again but engine management light is still on. Does anyone think the sub and amp caused the engine management light to come on? Also how can I reset engine management light without taking it to a garage. Thanks in advance.

Hi all. I have a Mondeo 1.8LX petrol 2005. I stopped outside a shop and came back in a few minutes and the car wouldn't start. I checked Fuel pressure at Rail and there was plenty of fuel there. I found no Spark at output from coil pack. It.s only two month's since I had to replace it one Saturday morning so I hope it's not gone faulty on me. The indication that morning was the Engine light kept flashing with very juddering movement diving away from traffic lights. I went into a motor factor shop and bought a new coil for €35. I would like to know how to test a coil pack . Many thanks.

Answer this question

Colin Murphy, Buckinghamshire

After a short run my car suffers from juddering under load. Back off slightly on the throttle and it stops, only to start again under load. The juddering is not constant but judders 3 or 4 times then there is a pause then 3 or 4 judders then a pause etc. This will continue for as long as I maintain a constant speed. The judder becomes more noticeable the longer the journey. I had a new torque converter and a complete gearbox rebuild 12 months ago.

I recently purchased a car (Mondeo Titanium estate 2011) on 29th March 2015 after stopping to fill up I noticed one of my side lights were out. I went to Halfords to have it replaced only to be told there is nowhere to put the bulb in the light unit, it seems the off side front light unit is different from the other side which has a side light in it and it's working. So it appears I have two different light units in my car. How can this be? This surely isn't right? Could I be stopped by the police for this reason, and how has this car passed it's MOT? I know from my research that cars with day lights sometimes don't need side lights, but surely both the lighting units should be the same. Could someone shed some LIGHT on this for me please?

Why are the headlights rubbish? It's a Titanium X and I had the same miners lamps on my 60 plate Titanium. When you buy a 2014 TX plus you would expect at least a torch to see in the dark.
