Answer this question

Antony Jackson, West Yorkshire

Ford Fusion

After driving several miles the battery charging light, ABS and Power Steering lights illuminate (the power steering has definitely failed as it becomes heavy). After stopping and returning to the car several hours later, the car just manages to start and everything is normal. After diving several mile the exact same happens again. The system has been interrogated (unfortunately when the problem had once again disappeared), no recorded faults or error codes are apparent. Anybody had similar issues with their 2008 model

Every now and then when changing gear my clutch pedal clonks and goes loose. I take my foot off the pedal so it comes back up put my foot back on it and it is fine. This has happened four times so far. Any ideas what could be causing this?

Answers

Check that the circlip is holding the plunger on the clutch pedal. It's very common for the circlip to ping off allowing the plunger to become detached. Richie from Hertfordshire

paul buttler, Middlesex

Ford Fusion

hi ive had problems with my fusion going into limp mode and finally breaking down.took to garage. had it serviced and diagnostic suggested the exhaust valve (egr or something like that! and a fuel injector needed replacing. I had this done and drove away,though the car when cold still sounded quite ropey. two days later it went into limp mode and then finally had toi be taken back to garage. now they are telling me they think it could be an electrical fault. could this have been the cause in the first place? does it require much work to find the fault. do these people know what they are doing? would appreciate some advice. thanks for your help paul

My 2007 won't start. It was fine yesterday. I have tried the lock and unlock. Still has not started. Trid jumping for the heck of it but radio was working so I know it wasn't the battery. When door is opened the security red light flashes, I put key in ignition and the light goes out but won't start. There is no clicking noise, nothing. It's like it's dead but dash lights, radio and dinging sound when you open door comes on. Not sure on the Variant section you asked to indicate.

Sandra, West Midlands

car used reasonably regular ( 3 -4 times weekly) with no problem for 4 years.. last week after being left for 3 days (in garage where it is normally kept) door would not open except manually and car would not start.Even the immobiliser light was not flashing. Our usual mechanic checked it over and found the battery was flat . Fitted new battery. Used cars for several trips over 3 days, then it was in the garage for 3 days unused, Same problem ,couldn't open the door and would not start, no immobiliser light. Battery flat again. Mechanic came round started car using jump leads . He has checked over the car and cannot find any problem with Alternator... is charging battery. Something is obviously draining the battery down... any clues please..?

Sounds like one of your interior lights are staying on. Close the car up with the central locking, make sure the interior lights have gone out. Check the tailgate is closing properly. Eric from Merseyside
