Dash flicker

Had my ST serviced today. Dash flicker problem has had a TSB released on it. They replaced the alternator... will let you know if it didn't fix it.

Also had my seat repaired for the 3rd time...

Fuel gauge had a fault, was reading empty sometimes, that got fixed too.

Running some diester full synthetic Neo oil in it. Feeling good. :)

Re: Dash flicker

Heh good stuff. The fuel gauge issue seems to be Focus wide, regardless of spec. I had the sender card replaced. Glad they had a cure for the flicker, or at least, we hope.

Always good to have the car back feeling great!

Re: Dash flicker

Oh, I'm always about. I just lurk. Not a huge amount to say on the ST really. It's going well, I don't drive it that much anymore. I live close to work, so don't have any reason to drive very often. Was also OS for 6 weeks about a month ago now.

Re: Dash flicker

I wouldn't say they're a pain... they're fairly minor problems. I've had worse problems in other cars I've owned. The Focus has been relatively painless. The seat has been annoying, but it hasn't been a major fault, just an annoying clicking noise when it happens fromthe lumbar support.

Re: Dash flicker

Thanks Matt. Can feels freakin awesome now, after that service. Engine is getting nicely run in now that it's down over 14,000km and the new oil appears to allow the engine to rev a lot cleaner. And here I was getting a bit bored with driving... :)

Re: Dash flicker

I'll check the receipt for you when I get home tonight. I THINK it flickered yesterday, but I'm not certain. So far it has performed a lot better.

In any case, the flicker didn't really bother me, I had the dash lights dimmed down quite a ways.
