Ny ord Fiesta Edge 3 door1.25 petrol has had electrical problems for some time now. It has been tested and nothing shows up. The clock and dashboard are unstable. what can be wrong?
JA: Has the vehicle turned into a gas hog? And how does it start -- same as usual?

JA: What year is your Fiesta?
Customer: During a long journey, it had warning images of car steering.
JA: Are you fixing your Fiesta yourself? What have you tried so far?

Hi thanks
Ok when the esp light came on rod the vehicle lose /drop powerWhen you say the dash board has a flicker is it the ful cluster or the red light

I slowed down anyway, till the warning signs had gone. Dashboard lights flicker sometimes when I turn car engine off. So I turn car on again and make sure I turn ignition key slowly in a double take and there is no flickering.

Hi thanks
Ok your vehicle has a instrument cluster and pcm (Powertrain Control Module software update avaiable so this must be carried out firstly using fords ids software
As this could be the root cause of both these issues
There should be faukt codes logged in the pcm and abs module if the esp warning lights have came onKindest regards ***** *****
