13.10. Replacement of the storage battery

Before disconnecting the accumulator, write down all necessary codes of the Mondeo, for example, a code of anticreeping system of an autoradio tape recorder, the written down frequencies of radio stations and so forth. If you have forgotten it to make, the radio receiver in this situation becomes mute, and lateral windows will not fall any more: you should make active again all electric стеклоподъемники. Besides it, engine management "forgets" the basic part of the information. It is quickly switched to the emergency program and restored usually in a movement mode (a maximum of 16 kilometres). If all the same and it has not occurred to your car it is necessary to go to service Ford and again to spend loading of the data in РСМ – this procedure occupies some minutes.

These instructions basically concern all works during which carrying out it is necessary to disconnect the storage battery.


    Uncover the accumulator. That there was no short circuit, disconnect at first minus an accumulator wire. For this purpose unscrew клеммную a nut and disconnect the plug from an accumulator pole. Disconnect and remove плюсовой an accumulator wire. Unscrew fixing скобу the accumulator. Pull out the accumulator from a motor compartment. At installation pay attention to that the accumulator stably settled down on the console (jolting destroys lead plates). At installation in the beginning connect плюсовой a wire, then minus. Wire plugs cannot be mixed, as accumulator poles have a different thickness. Slightly grease poles from сульфатации противокислотной with greasing «Ft 40v1» (Bosch) or vaseline. Repeatedly enter codes and start the engine approximately for three minutes with frequency of rotation about 1500 rpm. It is so much time minimum it is necessary for a control system of the engine for restoration.

    It is hidden under plastic: the storage battery in motor compartment Mondeo in front at the left.
