Customer Question
I have a Mondeo...

I have a Mondeo 2.0tdci reg. 2012, with keyless system. Now there is messages "steering malfunction" and "key not detected", car won't start. there is also "daylights" staying on at right side of the car even car is not running and doors are locked...?!

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fob's battery?

Yes, battery is replaced few weeks ago. Battery voltage is apr. 12,3V now...

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Mondeo yourself? What have you tried so far?

Not anymore, car is in local Ford service now, but looks like they can't solve this problem easily and that's why i'm asking for you...

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I don't think so...

HI,

I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question

This may be ignition switch with antenna or a control module, but I need the last 8 of the vin number to pull the schematics and go over them
