Ford Focus C Max I have a problem wih my EPB.When the ignition

Customer Question

I have a problem wih my EPB.When the ignition is switched on, the message "Limited EPB Function" comes up and a warning light stays on the whole time although the message can be deleted.
The EPB works fine, always. My local Ford dealer couldn't find anything wrong but guessed that there might be a wiring problem which could take several expensive hours to fix,so as yet ,I haven't done anything.
Any ideas,please. Thanks

Hi there fz604rnk , Ok the most common issue we see regarding an intermitent

Limited EPB Function is a software issue with the EPB module claibration ,

This can be rectified by updating the EPB Module / Instument cluster to the latest software calibration level Using Fords WDS/IDS diagnostic computer

Ford released a Technical Service Bulletin regarding this issue in september 2004

The TSB number is 41/2004

refrence this TSB number the next time you speak to your ford dealer

This update may Only be avaible through WDS (Fords earlier computer )

most dealers will still have them

I have only ever seen 1 wiring issue with the EPB but the EPB wasnt working

The fault lay with a chaffed wiring loom at the drivers rear subframe area ( underside of the vehicle )

if you need anymore help or advice on this issue please let me know

if you ae completlety satisfied with my answer/advice PLEASE CLICK ACCEPT

Kind regards in advance

Brian
