  • Hi can anyone tell me if there is a sound setting in the secret menu for the warning chimes of my car I have mk2 ford focus but warning chimes have stopped working

    • There is no setting for warning chime other than disabling the seatbelt chime (with a buckle/unbackle combination – not with hidden menu).
      In hidden menu you can check if the chime is working. Find “Chime” position and listed to the car. If nothing plays you probably need to replace the chime speaker.
      Also check fuses in your car.

    • You can find that in the normal menu … I saw it when finding my way around . Don’t know what the chimes are as mine was already turned off

  • Can anyone tell me what this message means? not on all the time,,,,,,,,,,,Engine Systems Fault? Would doing this test tell me?

  • ’56 plate tdci ghia – any way to initiate alarm set chimes? It beeps when unlocking but not when locking. Also can’t deactivate internal sensors so I can leave dog inside without her setting alarm off – any ideas? Ta

    • I also have a 56 plate tdci ghia. My car has a button on the drivers door just next to the door handle which turns off the internal sensors for the alarm. If you press the button after taking the keys out of the ignition a message is displayed on the dashboard to state the internal sensors are deactivated.

    • Mine done that and it was one of the locks . Peplaced bonnet lock ( luckily it needed replacin anyway) and all went back to normal

    • Your reader only checks for DTCs in engine control module. 9318 is stored in instrument cluster module.

  • Hi is there a way of making it so when I the the ignition on the needles sweep like that all the time?

  • Hi. My average fuel consumption resets every time I switch the ignition on. Also, the beep setting resets itself but everything else is ok (odo, trip, etc.)

    Any ideas as to what could cause this?

  • Hi. My average fuel consumption resets every time I switch the ignition on. Also, the beep setting resets itself but everything else is ok (odo, trip, etc.). Also, the display defaults to the odometer rather than displaying the last thing selected.

  • Hello interested me engine temperature in essence what does it measure? Oil or coolant?

    Do you know if this is a problem or it is the real temperature in a particular zone of the engine ?

    Thanks !

  • Hi I have a 55 plate mk2 focus 1.7 ghia I removed the stereo and replaced it with another one and now when I turn the ignition on it takes the dashboard up to a minute for it to realise it’s been turned on and then the dials e.g Speedo,revs,fuel gauge come on
