    Low Tire Pressure Indicator

    Hi Capt Tom, Well, as I understand it, there is no TPMS sensor in the "emergency" spare wheel, so yes, the warning light will illuminate. Mine is lit too...thanks to a tire replacement "mechanic" who destroyed the sensor.....(And the local Ford Dealer has no clue as to how to replace it or re-program the sensor....as is required, I gather, from YouTube videos on the subject.) Anyway, I assume you have now refitted the original wheel & the light has self-extinguished???? Cheers, Steve

    Engine Fan Runs @ Max Constantly

    Hi there, Mmmm Sorry for the delay in replying but at that time my problem was related to the compressor clutch kicking in for no apparent reason. Now, today...I have the same problem as you had.... Both AC Condenser Fan and the Engine cooling fan both run at full speed when the car is started. Even when the engine is cold and with the AC Off. (The intermittent engaging of the AC Compressor clutch is still happening.) I am reluctant to take it to a dealer. (I have been ripped off recently by the company who changed my tires, they damaged a tire pressure sensor, although they denied it initially, they have since admitted they must have but say the local Ford Dealer does not know how to rectify it!) Anyway... did you locate the cause of the incorrect fan operation? Be grateful if you could advise! (As regards the blower (cabin) motor & its "speed" resistor: It should have NO effect on the engine fan(s) operation. I replaced a blower motor in a Kia recently, after first suspecting the resistor...but the resistor had continuity over its terminals, so it had to be the motor...brushes worn out, as evidenced by the amount of carbon/copper dust that came out of it!) Kind regards, Steve.
  3. Hi All, After starting a cold engine, even with the AC switched off, the compressor clutch activates & runs for a minute, switches off and repeats. This happens every time I start when the engine is cold. (Engine is the 2.5) It is winter here at the moment, and whilst I know it is always a good idea to run the compressor in the winter months........ (To help maintain the shaft seal lubrication) This stop/start of the compressor seems excessive to me....Is this a deliberate feature, inbuilt by Ford.....or do I have a problem?
