EB 1 Fairmont Ghia

I got myself a EB 1 Fairmont Ghia,
Was a very good car to drive around well a great car to drive

Anyway it started having problem starting, the Blake Fail light kept coming up, so me and my unlce check the brakes and everything was fine (go to a place to check my brakes). but after turning the car off then start it again it would start.

Well tonight when i went to start the car, it wont start. now the car has a alarm (that is disconnect) the red ligth never turned on, but after trying to start tonight the light has been flashing,

Only thing i have done is Remove my Headunit plus rear Speakers

Re: EB 1 Fairmont Ghia

Maybe shorted a fuse somewhere when removing the stereo?

Re: EB 1 Fairmont Ghia

The red light will be due t a fuse, blowing fuses when mucking with the stereos is easy, as for the brake fail, again, that could be related to fuse problems, but is unlikely to be, did you get the lines checked, or as stated, the master cylinder?

Re: EB 1 Fairmont Ghia

Anyway Found out why my car won't start, Battery was Flat cause something or somehow the car Alarm was actived so my haz light were flashing (it sits in the backyard). I can't Deactive it cause i dont have the alarm remote. So if anyone know where i can get one (i have asked my local ford dealer, but he said it was done by other company) or how to remove the alarm.

sorry mate now I understand, I thought you were saying something similar to "your blinker fluid is low".
