UK Ford Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello, I hope I can offer you some assistance.
Have you the chassis number of the car? So I can obtain the correct details. What is the concern with the car? Is it cutting out? Or the glow plug light flashing?
Let me know and I'll reply as soon as I'm able to.
this code refers to the power hold relay for the engine management system. If there is a permanent concern with this relay then the engine would normally cut out or fail to start. Nine times out of ten the code is set in error normally due to the ignition been cycled a couple of time in quick succession. The relay is located in the fuse box next to the battery and is numbered K163 in the diagram.
The relay is triggered by the engine management, pins 5 and 2 are 12 volt feeds, pin 1 is the switched wire operated by the engine management to energize the relay and pin 3 is the 12 volt feed to various engine management components when the relay is energized, these components include the EGR actuator, the vehicle speed sensor if equipped and the variable vane turbo actuator.
I hope this helps but let me know if I can assist any further and I'll reply as soon as I can.
Mondeo firing order is 1, 3, 4, 2. Number 1 is the crank pulley end. Remember that Ford number the injectors in firing order on this engine so cylinder 1 is injector 1. Cylinder 2 is injector 4, cylinder 3 is injector 2 and cylinder 4 is injector number 3.
I hope this is clear enough for you.
