13.23. Tools and actuation devices

As soon as the ignition key has been inserted, set of technical components between forward and back wheels appear under electronic "supervision". It raises your safety – during movement you should devote all attention to "speedometer" and a situation on road. However do not underestimate suddenly suddenly sunbathed control bulbs: visual warning signals in salon Mondeo always have under themselves "the serious" bases.

Quickly die away after start-up – control bulbs of pressure of oil, a pillow of safety and АБС

This remark concerns signalling device of pressure of oil, and also control indicators of a pillow of safety and functioning АБС which in engine start for some seconds light up. However if during movement they always remain "dark" or flickering, it "purposefully" speaks about malfunction presence in system. To avoid the subsequent expensive consequences and the unnecessary emergency moments, immediately give the Mondeo to experts of service service Ford for diagnostics.

It is sometimes possible – the incorrect information from salon

Naturally, electronic onboard systems working in it-lajn-mode, at times «get in way at someone»: from time to time «the system, and its periphery spins a web» not. Sometimes the defective switch, the gauge or a connecting wire provoke occurrence of the poor-quality information which pushes technically skilled driver on «disturbing meditations». Therefore keep cold mind and follow logic – for example when indicators of different systems simultaneously fail. At times for this information "salad" bears responsibility "only defective regulator of pressure. If only it. In each case it is necessary to consult well concerning the possible reasons and to exclude deficiency of the information.

Route for professionals – visual check before a trip

Before starting the Mondeo, sitting in salon, permit to itself to dart an attentive glance at the environment – in your subconsciousness «the usual picture of external shape» salon (the quantity of indicators depends on corresponding your equipment Mondeo) ran in due course, and even any deviation from it will rush at once to you to eyes.

    Whether hours function? At the included ignition bulbs of the control of a charge of the accumulator, pressure of oil, the control of a manual brake (should burn at the established brake), safety and functioning АБС/ESP pillows. In diesel Mondeo right after start-up the control lamp of a preliminary warming up lights up for some seconds also. Do not forget also about system of the emergency light alarm system, warmed back glass (windshield), forward and back antifog headlights. Check up, whether corresponding control bulbs function. Whether available the switch and whether lights up light in salon? Switch the left combined lever, whether control lamps of indexes of turn and a headlight function? Whether control lamps of a charge and pressure of oil after has earned the engine die away? Whether control lamps of a pillow of safety and the indicator of work АБС/ESP were switched off? Whether the control lamp of a preliminary warming up after has earned a diesel engine dies away? During driving pay attention to a speedometer and a tachometre.

Ergonomically and with taste: placing of means of service of the car in salon.


Check of tools in "a self-testing" mode

We recognise that you concern testified "professionals", or at least in the near future to them become. Thus, disorders in salon to you will be evident at once. That them to understand and correctly to estimate, take advantage of technics which Ford endows to everyone Mondeo as "the latent" help for professional «винтоверта»: before the master will start to move any small screw, it should анимировать the combined device for self-testing.

For this purpose it presses button Reset of a speedometer and turns in parallel with it the ignition lock-switch in position II. As soon as on the display there will be a word «TEST» (in approximately 5–8 seconds), it is possible to release the dump button. The combined device passes further in «a control mode of scanning» all devices of indication. If you wish to continue a self-testing mode again press the dump button. This "game" proceeds until on the display there will be no coded decision of your problem or you have not finished process of self-testing by ignition key turn in a direction «OFF».

If to you this code about what does not speak look for the dealer Ford and "give out" it a combination of figures and letters. He in the beginning, naturally, will sceptically look, whether it can translate this code and make the corresponding first steps. And only after that it takes obligatory the become fashionable garage tester «WDS». As the expert fan, you, of course, without «WDS» are not so helpless.

The control lamp of pressure of oil does not burn: include ignition, disconnect a wire from the switch with a hydrodrive and concern them of the bared metal (weight). If now the lamp lights up, replace the switch – if the lamp continues to remain "dark", consistently check up feeding wire, a current-carrying film of the combined device and a lamp. The switch with a hydrodrive "has taken places" in carburettor engines in the block of cylinders of the engine directly near to a flange of the oil filter, the diesel engine "bears" this switch at height of a head of the block of cylinders on the left side of the engine.

The indicator of level of fuel in a tank does not function: are defective either the indicator, or the fuel gauge (the float is clamped). Probably, failure in giving of a current or contact on weight is insufficient. The fuel indicator supposes only limited search of malfunctions. For check of wires in a fuel tank it is necessary in Mondeo to spend some spadework and, depending on diameter of wires, special tools for spring tightening couplings here are necessary. Therefore we recommend to you to look for a workshop with the lift and there to spend this work.

Without drawing of damages it is possible to separate only by means of the special tool spring tightening couplings.

Alarm system lanterns do not function: in the beginning check up a corresponding safety lock, then wire connections and gauge elements on correctness of functioning. The multimeter here will render you the feasible help. If malfunction has been localised, replacement of the majority of elements of the gauge or control lamps for the fan will not make special difficulties. However it is better to refuse repair of electronic payments of the combined device, of course: trust here in the dealer Ford.
