Bonnet and Flash Code

Post by 4PaulDerbyV6 » Wed Sep 23, 2020 11:29 am

I would be grateful if you have any suggestions to revive my M registered 24V Probe residing in Nottinghamshire.
The MOT is due next month
The bonnet catch does not hold the bonnet down and is on the safety mechanism. A local garage says it needs a new mechanism (not available from a Ford dealer)
A Flash Code of 13 is showing on the dash when driving
Any help, advise or suggestions would be extremely welcome
Cheers

if you need a replacement catch, I'm sure someone will have one from a breaker, try a post in wanted

As for code 13, where is it showing on the dash, which light?

Check the spring on your bonnet catch, it may be broken, mine was and catch wouldn't close, have good look because if it was like mine covered in grease it's hard to see that it's snapped
It's easy to remove the whole of the catch to change to spring if it has snapped, couple on 10m bolts and the alarm wire connection
