Answer this question

Artur, Greater London

Ford Transit

When I’m driving and on the high gear, I press the accelerator, mostly when going uphill, the engine switches into an emergency mode - yellow control lamp switches on, power cuts off, when I re-start the engine everything is ok, until the next time that the event repeats itself. When driving normally everything is ok. I think there is a problem with fuel consumption (this is very high) or exhaust fume analyser. When I attempt to check this on a computer at a garage it does not show any faults.

Answer this question

Rhys macallister, Ireland

Ford Transit

Hi, Yesterday I was driving on the motorway and I pulled into a service area. I could not shift down in gears. When I stopped and started again, from neutral, I could not put it into gear. It was blocked. I was only able to get into gear when ignition was off, turn ignition on and start to move from 1st to 5th. That way, I made it home. Now the problem is: It starts in neutral but will not go into gear. If I turn off ignition and, as before, put into 1st, then turn the ignition on, the vehicle will NOT START. Now it seems that the battery is not kicking in when I start the vehicle "in gear", but the Vehicle starts when in neutral.

Answer this question

Roy, Yorkshire

I believe that I have just shorted out my electric drivers seat whilst changing the battery under the seat by touching metal whilst touching the battery positive terminal. My passenger seat as now stopped working as well. I have looked through the manual to locate the fuse that over sees the electrics on the seats but could not find the fuse. I have also checked all the small fuses in the engine compartment but they all look ok. I have also looked at the other two fuse boxes in front of the passenger seat but they are the box type fuses which I do not know how to check... Could anyone out there please help.

Answer this question

Richard Lennard, Devon

Ford Transit

2001 Ford Transit 2.4 duratec. This was brought to me, non running, having been to a diesel specialist. (reputable and national) The injection timing was out - most likely pump. I did the basic diagnostic check. No lights on and no fault codes, apart from B1318 I think, the one for low voltage. Checked at 11.8v so attached boost charger, now at 12.8. Fault code still remained. Checked timing chain, 2 teeth missing of pump pinion and timing had slipped one tooth on cams and pump relative to crank, but they were timed relative to each other correctly. Replaced all the chain and sprockets etc. Wouldnt start. Gave it a sniff, hate the stuff, but no joy. Towed it for 200 yards, didnt start, loads of white smoke, smelling of unburnt diesel, as you would expect. I suspect the pump has gone down as well? Am I missing something? Any help greatly appreciated.
