    Introduction
    PREFACE
    Congratulations on acquiring your
    new Ford. Please take the time to
    get well acquainted with your
    vehicle by reading your owner
    literature. The more you know and
    understand about your vehicle the
    greater the safety, economy, and
    pleasure you will derive from
    driving it.
    The Owner’s Guide describes
    every option and model variant
    available in every European
    country and therefore some of
    the items covered may not apply
    to your particular vehicle.
    Furthermore, due to printing
    cycles it may describe options
    before they are generally
    available.

    2

    Regular servicing of your vehicle
    helps maintain both its roadworthiness and its resale value. A
    network of more than 7,000 Ford
    Dealers throughout Europe can
    help you with their professional
    servicing expertise.
    Their specially trained personnel
    are best qualified to service your
    vehicle properly and expertly. Also,
    they are supported by a wide range
    of highly specialised tools and
    equipment specially developed for
    servicing Ford vehicles.
    Remember to pass on the
    Owner’s Guide when
    reselling the vehicle. It is an
    integral part of the vehicle.

    Introduction
    FOR YOUR SAFETY AND
    ENVIRONMENT PROTECTION
    Warning symbols in
    this guide
    How can you reduce the risk of
    personal injury and prevent
    possible damage to others, your
    vehicle and its equipment? In this
    guide, answers to such questions
    are contained in comments
    highlighted by the warning triangle
    symbol.
    Note:
    Important information is also given
    in paragraphs starting with the
    highlighted word Note.
    Warning symbols on
    your vehicle
    When you see this
    symbol, it is imperative
    that you consult the
    relevant section of this
    guide before touching or
    attempting adjustment of any kind.

    RUNNING IN
    Avoid driving too briskly during the
    first 1,000 miles (1,500 km). Vary
    the speed frequently and avoid
    labouring the engine. This is
    necessary to give the moving parts
    a chance to bed in.
    New tyres require a running-in
    distance of approximately
    300 miles (500 km). During this
    period, the car may exhibit
    different driving characteristics.
    Therefore, avoid driving too briskly
    during the first 300 miles (500 km).
    If possible, you should avoid heavy
    use of the brakes for the first
    100 miles (150 km) in town and for
    the first 1,000 miles (1,500 km) on
    motorways.
    From 1,000 miles (1,500 km)
    onwards you can gradually increase
    the performance of your vehicle up
    to the permitted maximum speeds.
    We wish you safe and pleasurable
    driving with your Ford vehicle.

    Oil pressure gauge
    Oil temperature gauge
    Frost warning light
    (see page 14)

    This gauge indicates engine oil
    pressure up to a recommended safe
    maximum of 5 bar. During normal
    driving the indicated oil pressure
    will vary with engine speed, the
    pressure rising as engine speed
    rises and dropping as engine speed
    drops.
    Driving with your oil pressure
    gauge pointer continuously at the
    top of the scale may damage the
    engine.

    If the engine oil pressure drops
    below the normal range, the oil
    pressure gauge pointer will drop to
    the bottom of the gauge scale and
    the engine oil pressure warning
    light will illuminate. Stop the
    vehicle as soon as safely possible
    and switch off the engine
    immediately. Check the oil level
    and add oil if needed.

    Outside air
    Always keep the air intakes forward
    of the front screen free of snow,
    leaves etc., to allow the system to
    function effectively.
    Recirculated air
    When recirculated air is selected,
    only the air currently in the
    passenger compartment will be
    circulated. Outside air will not
    enter the vehicle.
    Note: It is not recommended to
    use recirculated air for more than
    30 minutes as there is no air
    exchange and the windows may
    mist up.
    Fresh air filter/active carbon
    filter
    The fresh air filter removes most
    potentially harmful particles such
    as pollen, industrial fallout and road
    dust from entering the vehicle’s
    interior. The active carbon filter
    removes odeurs.
    In an automatic car wash, you
    should switch off the ventilation

    Heating
    The heating depends upon the
    coolant temperature and is
    therefore only effective when the
    engine is warm.
    Air conditioning
    The air is directed through the
    coolant heat exchanger where it is
    cooled if the air conditioning is
    switched on. In addition, humidity
    is extracted from the air to help
    keep the windows free of mist.
    The resulting condensation is
    directed to the outside of the
    vehicle. It is therefore quite normal
    if you notice a small pool of water
    underneath the parked vehicle.
    Note: The air conditioning system
    only operates when the
    temperature is above +4 ºC, the
    engine is running and the blower is
    switched on. Operating the air
    conditioning leads to higher fuel
    consumption.

    ANTI-THEFT ALARM SYSTEM
    The system is armed as soon as the
    vehicle is locked and acts as a
    deterrent to unauthorised persons
    who attempt to open the doors,
    bonnet or luggage compartment, or
    remove the radio.
    Activation
    Turn the key as far as it will go in
    the locked position and hold in this
    position for one second.
    Refer to the sections Central
    locking with double locking
    system and Radio frequency

    Automatic activation delay
    The 20 seconds activation delay
    begins when the bonnet, luggage
    compartment and all doors are
    closed.
    Alarm
    The alarm sounds for 30 seconds if
    an unauthorised person opens a
    door, the luggage compartment or
    the bonnet. The hazard flasher
    lights will flash for five minutes.
    Any attempt to start the engine
    without a valid key or to remove
    the radio sounds the alarm again.

    To switch off
    The anti-theft alarm system can be
    deactivated at any time – even
    when the alarm is sounding – by
    unlocking one of the front doors.
    The anti-theft alarm system for the

    • The seat belts should fit tightly
    around the body.
    Fastening the seat belts
    Make sure that each seat belt uses
    the correct buckle.
    In order to ensure that the
    centre belt works properly,
    the rear seatback must be
    correctly engaged.

    Pull the belt out steadily. It may
    lock if pulled sharply or if the
    vehicle is on a slope.
    Insert the tongue into the
    buckle until a distinct click
    is heard, otherwise the seat belt
    will not be locked correctly.
    To release the belt, press the red
    button on the buckle and let the
    belt rewind completely and
    smoothly.

    82

    Do not recline the front seats
    excessively as the belts provide
    maximum protection when the
    seats are in the near upright
    position.

    unborn child.

    83



  • Page 86

    Seating and safety restraints
    The lap strap should be fitted
    comfortably across the hips, low
    beneath the pregnant abdomen.
    The diagonal part of the seat belt
    should be placed between the
    breasts, and worn above and to the
    side of the pregnant abdomen.
    Always wear seat belts without
    slack or twists. For optimum
    protection, the seat belts should fit
    tightly around the body. Do not
    recline the front seats excessively,
    as the belts provide maximum
    protection when the seats are in
    the near upright position.
    Never wear just the lap
    strap of a lap/shoulder
    diagonal seat belt and never sit
    on the lap strap using just the
    shoulder strap. Both of these
    actions are extremely dangerous
    and may increase your risk of
    serious injury.

    84

    Seat belt pretensioner
    The belt pretensioners
    must not be removed. If the
    pretensioners deployed during an
    accident, they must be replaced.
    Have the pretensioners serviced
    and disposed of by specially
    trained personnel.

    The restraint system, with belt
    pretensioner in the front seat, helps
    to reduce the risk of serious injury
    in a head-on collision. During a
    crash the seat belts are
    pretensioned to help reduce slack
    in the belt.
    The belt pretensioner is only
    triggered in major frontal collisions
    provided the deployment threshold
    is reached and the seat belt is
    correctly engaged in the buckle.
    Refer to the section Air bag for
    further details.

    Seating and safety restraints
    Care of seat belts

    Periodically check the belts for
    damage or fraying.
    Do not attempt to repair or
    lubricate retractor or
    buckle mechanisms or to modify
    the belts in any way.
    Belts subjected to strain – as a
    result of an accident – should be
    renewed and the anchorages
    checked by an expert.
    Repositioning or uprating radio
    speakers may adversely affect seat
    belt operation. For further
    guidance consult your dealer.
    For information about cleaning the
    seat belts, please refer to section

    AIR BAG
    The system
    The air bag system comprises the
    following:
    • dual−stage inflatable air bags with
    gas generators.
    • side air bags.
    • seat belt pretensioners.
    • a variety of crash sensors.
    • a warning light in the instrument
    panel.
    • an electronic control and
    diagnostic unit.
    Note: A loud bang will be heard
    when an air bag deploys and it is
    normal to see a cloud of harmless
    powdery residue.

    86

    Front air bags
    The seat and back must be set
    correctly for the air bag to be
    optimally effective. Refer to section
    Sitting in the correct position at
    the beginning of this chapter.
    This is the ideal seating position for
    driver and passenger and helps
    reduce the risk of injury from
    sitting too close to an inflating air
    bag.



  • Page 89

    Seating and safety restraints

    Always wear the seat belt
    and keep sufficient distance
    between the driver and the steering wheel. Only when the seat
    belt is used properly, can it hold
    the body in a position which allows the airbag to achieve its
    optimum effect.
    There is a risk of injury when the
    airbag deploys.

    The front air bags activate during
    major collisions which are either
    frontal or up to 30 degrees from
    the left or the right. The air bags
    inflate within a few thousandths of
    a second. They will deflate on
    contact with the front occupants
    thus cushioning forward body
    movement.

    Do not modify the front of
    the vehicle in any way as
    this can adversely affect air bag
    deployment.

    The front air bags are not
    activated in minor collisions,
    overturns, rear or side
    collisions.

    87



  • Page 90

    Seating and safety restraints
    Always keep the areas in
    front of the air bags free.
    Never affix anything to or over
    these areas.

    These areas should only be wiped
    with a damp cloth, never with a wet
    cloth.
    Repairs to the steering
    wheel, steering column and
    air bag system should be carried
    out by properly trained
    technicians.

    88

    Side air bags

    A label on the seatback indicates
    that side air bags are fitted.
    The side air bags are fitted on the
    side of the seatbacks of the front
    seats. In case of a severe lateral
    collision, the air bag on the side
    affected by the collision will be
    inflated, even if the respective seat
    is not occupied.



  • Page 91

    Seating and safety restraints

    The air bag will inflate between the
    door panel and occupant. Once the
    occupant’s body contacts the air
    bag, the propellant escapes thereby
    cushioning the impact.
    The side bags are not activated
    in minor lateral collisions,
    front or rear collisions.
    The crash sensors for the side air
    bags are located under the
    outboard side of the seats, fixed to
    the floor. If water has entered the
    floor area, do not start the vehicle.
    Keep the sensors free from water,
    heavy or sharp objects.

    Repairs to either of the
    front seat covers, the
    sensors attached to the seats as
    well as to the roof lining should
    only be carried out by properly
    trained technicians. Injuries may
    result if the side air bags are
    triggered inadvertently.
    Do not block, obstruct or cover
    the air bag because it may
    prevent proper deployment.
    Do not poke any sharp objects
    into the areas where air bags are
    fitted. This could damage the air
    bags.
    Do not use any accessory seat
    covers that are not specifically
    designed for seats with side air
    bags. These seat covers must be
    fitted by properly trained
    technicians.

    seat/restraint, always read and
    follow the manufacturer’s
    instructions.
    There is a risk of death or
    serious injury when the
    manufacturer’s instructions are
    not followed properly or when the
    child seat/restraint is modified in
    any way.
    Do not hold a child on your
    lap while the vehicle is
    moving.

    Note:
    • If the vehicle has been involved in
    an accident, have the child safety
    seat checked by specially trained
    technicians as it might be damaged.
    • Do not leave unaccompanied
    children in the child safety seat or
    in the vehicle.
    • When installing a child
    seat/restraint with the seat belt,
    always ensure belts fit without
    slack or twists.

    Children of height 150 cm or under
    or aged 12 years or under should
    be secured in special restraints for
    children, such as baby seats, child
    safety seats or booster cushions.
    Such equipment must be suitable
    and government approved
    (depending on country).
    Together with the adult seat belt,
    these restraints help to provide
    maximum security for the children.

    Never use a booster seat
    with only a lap belt.
    Never put the shoulder belt
    under a child’s arm or
    behind the back.
    Never use pillows, books, or
    towels to boost a child.

    Driving direction
    • Children between three and a half
    and twelve years and weighing
    between 15 and 36 kg should use a
    booster cushion in the rear seat.
    An adjustable auxiliary belt fixed to
    the booster cushion ensures
    optimum routing of the diagonal
    belt over the shoulder. Make sure
    that your child sits in an upright
    position.

    Starting
    GENERAL POINTS ON
    STARTING
    Do not operate the starter for
    longer than 15 seconds at a time or
    30 seconds for vehicles with diesel
    engines. Release the ignition key as
    soon as the engine has started.
    If the engine has not started, return
    the ignition key/ignition switch to
    position 0 and repeat the starting
    procedure.
    If the engine does not start,
    refer to the instructions
    regarding the fuel injection
    system shut-off switch on
    page 115.
    Vehicles with a petrol engine
    If the battery has been
    disconnected the vehicle may
    exhibit some unusual driving
    characteristics for approximately
    5 miles (8 km) after battery
    reconnection.
    This is because the engine
    management system must realign
    itself with the engine. Any unusual
    driving characteristics during this
    period may be disregarded.

    STARTING THE ENGINE
    Vehicles with a petrol engine
    Cold/hot engine
    • Depress the clutch pedal fully
    and start the engine without
    touching the accelerator.
    • If the engine does not start within
    15 seconds, wait for a short period
    and repeat the procedure.
    • If the engine does not start after
    three attempts wait 10 seconds
    and follow the Flooded engine
    procedure.
    • If starting difficulty is
    experienced at temperatures below
    −25 ºC, depress the accelerator
    pedal 1/4 to 1/2 of its travel to
    assist starting.
    Flooded engine
    • Depress the clutch pedal fully.
    • Slowly depress the accelerator
    fully, hold it in this position and
    start the engine.
    • If the engine does not start
    repeat the Cold/hot engine
    procedure.

    Engine speed limiter
    The engine speed is limited
    electronically to protect the engine.

    ensure the glow plug indicator light
    illuminates.
    Glow plug indicator light off

    The engine can be started only with
    the selector lever in the N or P
    position.
    Your vehicle is fitted with an
    additional selector lever locking
    device which operates when the
    selector lever is in the park
    position.
    After starting the engine, the lever
    can be moved out of this position
    only when the foot brake is
    depressed and the locking
    button pressed down.
    Apply the handbrake or
    depress the footbrake
    before selecting a gear. Failure to
    do so could result in the vehicle
    pulling away when you have
    engaged a gear.
    A cold engine runs at a higher
    idling speed after starting. This
    causes a strong ‘creep’ tendency in
    reverse and all forward gears.

    96

    • Wait until the light extinguishes
    before starting and continue
    cranking without pausing until the
    engine starts.
    • If the engine stalls, repeat the full
    starting procedure.
    • At temperatures below −15ºC it
    may be necessary to operate the
    starter for up to 30 seconds. If
    these weather conditions persist,
    an engine block heater is
    recommended.

    Wait until the engine has reached
    idle speed, then switch off.
    If the engine is switched off at high
    speed, the turbocharger will
    continue running after the engine
    oil pressure has dropped to zero.
    This will lead to premature
    turbocharger bearing wear.

    DRIVING WITH AUTOMATIC
    TRANSMISSION

    Moving off in sand, mud and
    snow

    Moving off

    With the engine idling and the
    brake pedal depressed, move the
    selector lever to one of the driving
    positions. Release the brakes. The
    vehicle will start to move slowly in
    the selected direction. Depress the
    accelerator pedal to increase speed.
    It is not possible to tow
    start or push start a vehicle
    fitted with automatic
    transmission. Use jump leads
    attached to a booster battery.

    98

    If the driving wheels are stuck, try
    to rock the vehicle free by driving
    forwards and backwards. To do
    this, move the selector lever
    alternately to D and R and depress
    the accelerator as little as possible.
    To increase the effect, move the
    selector lever to R while the vehicle
    is still moving forward and vice
    versa.
    To avoid excessive wear on the
    transmission when shifting between
    forward and reverse (rocking) keep
    the engine speed as low as possible.
    As an exception, position 2 may be
    used for initial drive-off on icy or
    snowy road surfaces.

    Driving
    Downshift (Kickdown)

    The automatic transmission can be
    made to provide increased torque
    for steep gradients or for
    overtaking. To achieve this
    kickdown effect, depress the
    accelerator pedal fully and hold it
    down in the selector lever position
    D.
    The transmission will change into
    the next higher gear when the
    maximum engine speed has been
    reached.

    Manual gear changes
    Moving off

    Select position 1, release the
    handbrake and depress the
    accelerator pedal. Move the
    selector lever to position 2 and D as
    the road speed increases.
    Changing down
    If the selector lever is moved from
    position D to position 2 while
    driving, the automatic transmission
    will change down to second gear
    once the speed drops below
    70 mph (110 km/h) and remain in
    this gear. If the selector lever is
    moved to position 1, the automatic
    transmission remains in second
    gear until the speed drops to
    28 mph (45 km/h). It will then
    change down to first gear and stay
    in this gear. Change down on
    downhill gradients, long uphill
    gradients and twisty roads.

    Stopping
    Release the accelerator pedal and
    depress the footbrake. Leave the
    selector lever where it is. To move
    off again release the footbrake.
    REFUELLING
    Filling up
    Refer also to section Fuel in the
    chapter Capacities and
    specifications.
    To avoid fuel spillage that
    could be hazardous to other
    road users, always stop refuelling
    after the fuel nozzle stops the
    second time. Additional fuel will
    fill the expansion space in the
    fuel tank which could lead to fuel
    overflowing.
    The fuel system is under
    pressure. There is a risk of
    injury if the fuel system is
    leaking. Do not use any kind of
    flames or heat near the fuel
    system.

    100

    Incorrect fuel
    If you fill your vehicle with
    incorrect fuel or additives,
    do not attempt to start the
    engine. This may lead to engine
    damage.
    Driving with a catalytic
    converter
    • Avoid running out of fuel.
    • Avoid unnecessarily long engine
    cranking periods.
    • Do not run the engine with a
    disconnected spark plug.
    • Do not push-start or tow-start the
    vehicle with the engine at operating
    temperature; use jump leads.
    • Never switch off the ignition
    while driving.
    Parking
    It is important to avoid
    parking, idling or operating
    the vehicle on dry leaves or dry
    grass. Even when the engine is
    switched off, the exhaust will
    continue to radiate a considerable
    amount of heat for a short period
    creating a potential fire hazard.

    TRAILER TOWING

    Detachable towball arm

    If your vehicle has a
    detachable towball arm,
    always remove it when driving
    without a trailer.
    The maximum vehicle and trailer
    payloads represent technically
    binding values for gradients up to
    12 % and at an altitude of
    1,000 metres above sea level.
    In high altitude regions, thinner
    atmosphere can reduce engine
    performance so the following
    restrictions will apply:
    Above 1,000 metres the stipulated
    maximum permitted gross train
    weight must be reduced by 10 %
    for every 1,000 metres in altitude.

    Never leave the detached
    towball arm unsecured
    inside the vehicle. This would
    increase the risk of injury in an
    accident.

    Steep gradients
    Change down in plenty of time
    before downhill gradients.
    Remember the limited effect of the
    trailer brakes. Only use the foot
    brake in short intervals to avoid
    overheating the brakes. If you have
    automatic transmission, move the
    selector lever to position 1 when
    going up or down steep hills.
    The overrun brake on a
    trailer is not controlled by
    the anti-lock braking system.

    To mount the towball arm, remove
    the cover (3- and 5-door models
    only) located in the apron beneath
    the rear bumper. Remove both
    screws and the cover carefully.

    101



  • Page 104

    Driving
    The screws for the cover should be
    lubricated before and after the
    winter season.

    When not in use the towball arm
    should always be carried securely
    fastened in the luggage
    compartment.
    The towball arm may be inserted
    only when the mechanism is
    unlocked correctly.
    Special care should be
    taken when fitting the
    towball arm, as the safety of the
    vehicle and the trailer depends on
    this.

    102

    Unlocking the towball arm
    mechanism

    • Remove the protecting cap.
    Insert the key and turn
    anticlockwise to unlock.
    • Pull the handwheel out and turn
    it clockwise until it clicks.
    • The red mark on the handwheel
    must align with the white mark on
    the towball.
    • Release the handwheel. The
    towball arm is unlocked.
    Do not use any tools for
    mounting/dismounting the
    towball arm. Do not modify the
    trailer coupling. Do not
    disassemble/repair the towball
    arm.

    ensure the towball arm is properly
    locked. Check:

    • Pull out the plug.

    • Insert the towball arm vertically
    and press it upwards until it
    engages. (Do not hold your hand
    near the handwheel.)
    • The towball arm locks
    automatically. The green area must
    align with the white mark.

    • The alignment of the green area
    with the white mark.
    • The handwheel is correctly fitted
    to the towball arm.
    • The key has been removed.
    • Secure positioning of the towball
    arm. (Must remain perfectly in
    place when jerked.)
    If any of the above
    conditions cannot be met,
    do not use the tow bar and have it
    inspected by a dealer.

    Removing the towball arm

    • Unhitch the trailer.
    • Remove the protecting cap.
    Insert the key and unlock in an
    anticlockwise direction.
    • Hold the towball arm. Pull the
    handwheel out, turn it clockwise
    until it clicks and remove the
    towball arm.
    • Release the handwheel.
    When unlocked in this way, the
    towball arm can be reinserted at
    any time.

    • Insert the plug into its seat.

    • Reinstall the cover (3- and 5-door
    models only) and the two screws in
    the apron beneath the rear bumper.
    • If the system is not used for a
    prolonged period, set the assembly
    to its locked position: Press the
    release lever forwards.
    To avoid risk of injury,
    never unlock the towball
    arm with the trailer attached.
    Maintenance
    Keep the system clean. Periodically
    lubricate bearings, sliding surfaces,
    and locking balls with resin-free
    grease or oil and the lock with
    graphite.
    Remove the towball arm
    and protect the seat with
    the plug before steam cleaning
    your vehicle.
    Keep a note of the key number.

    ROOF RACK
    3-, 4- and 5-door

    When the roof rack is removed
    from the vehicle, reinsert the plugs
    into the fixing points.
    Pull back the rubber sealing from
    the roof flange to locate the
    retaining points for the roof rack
    which are positioned centrally
    above the doors. (On 3-door
    variants, the rear retaining points
    are positioned near the tailgate.)
    Remove the screw plugs.

    Driving
    The maximum permissible roof
    rack load is 100 kg.
    Loads should be evenly

    any loads directly onto the roof
    surface.
    550 mm

    BRAKES
    Dual circuit braking system

    700 mm
    Your vehicle is equipped with a
    diagonally split dual circuit braking
    system. If one of the brake circuits
    fails, the other remains operative.

    Note: Lockable cross rails with
    fitting key from the Ford
    accessories range can be obtained
    from your Ford Dealer.
    Take care not to install the cross
    rails over the rear area of the
    sunroof in such a way that it would
    restrict the tilting mechanism.
    To minimise wind noise, the two
    cross rails can be fitted 30 cm apart
    or be completely removed when
    they are not in use.

    If a brake circuit fails, you
    will at first experience a
    softer feel to the brake pedal. You
    will then need to exert a greater
    force on the brake pedal and
    make allowance for increased
    stopping distances. Have the
    braking system checked by an
    expert immediately.

    Disc brakes

    Wet brake discs result in reduced
    braking efficiency.
    After leaving a carwash, dab the
    brake pedal while driving to remove
    the film of water.

    Brake system warning light

    Anti-lock Braking System (ABS)

    The Brake system warning light
    remains illuminated when the
    handbrake is engaged.

    The ABS operates only when the
    wheels are about to lock. Its
    operation is indicated by a pulsing
    of the brake pedal and full steering
    control is retained. Do not release
    the pedal whilst braking.

    If it illuminates after
    releasing the handbrake or
    when driving, have the braking
    system checked by an expert
    immediately.

    Although the ABS ensures
    optimum braking efficiency,
    stopping distances can vary
    greatly depending on the road
    surface and conditions. Use of the
    ABS cannot eliminate the dangers
    inherent in driving too close to
    the vehicle in front of you,
    aquaplaning, excessive cornering
    speed or poor road surfaces.

    TRACTION CONTROL SYSTEM
    (TCS)/ELECTRONIC STABILITY
    PROGRAM (ESP)
    Traction control system
    Drivers should never take
    unnecessary risks even
    though the Traction Control
    System offers inherently safer
    driving potential.
    Principle of operation

    The system may become active
    when accelerating on a slippery
    road or loose surface, or when
    pulling away on a hill.
    Two different types of Traction
    Control System are available with
    this model range.
    Brake Traction Control System
    (BTCS)
    (1.4 l Zetec-SE and diesel
    engines)
    This system minimises cross-axle
    wheel slip to enhance traction at
    lower speeds.
    Traction Control System (TCS)
    (1.6 l Zetec-SE, 1.8 l Zetec-E,
    2.0 l Zetec-E and
    2.0 l Duratec-ST engines)
    This system controls wheel slip on
    the drive axle by a combination of
    engine torque reduction and brake
    control (BTCS) to enhance vehicle
    stability, steerability and traction at
    all vehicle speeds.

    BTCS/TCS indicator light
    The Traction Control System
    reduces wheel spin at the driven
    wheels.

    Driving
    Electronic Stability Program
    (ESP)
    Drivers should never take
    unnecessary risks even
    though the Electronic Stability
    Program system offers inherently
    safer driving potential.

    with ESP

    without ESP

    ESP indicator light
    Principle of operation
    The Electronic Stability Program
    (ESP) system helps the driver to
    maintain the stability and
    steerability of the vehicle. The
    system integrates the anti-lock
    braking (ABS) and Traction Control
    (TCS) systems with a yaw
    reduction feature to further
    enhance the stability of the vehicle.

    ESP constantly monitors the
    vehicle motion relative to the
    driver’s intended course. This is
    done by using added sensors that
    compare the steering inputs from
    the driver with the actual motion of
    the vehicle. When the system
    detects a discrepancy, ESP changes
    the force at each tyre to help
    correct it.

    109



  • Page 112

    Driving
    If the vehicle begins to rotate
    excessively left or right, spin out,
    or slide sideways, the system will
    attempt to correct the excessive
    motion. If the vehicle does not
    respond to steering inputs, the
    system will attempt to alter the
    turning response of the vehicle.
    ESP does not work when the
    vehicle is travelling backwards. In
    reverse, the ABS and TCS systems
    will continue to function.
    Driving with TCS/ESP

    BTCS/TCS indicator light

    ESP indicator light
    While driving, the indicator light
    flashes during activation of the
    system (excluding BTCS).

    110

    If the indicator light does not
    illuminate when the ignition is
    switched on or if it illuminates
    continuously while driving, it
    indicates a malfunction. During a
    malfunction, the system switches
    off. Have the system checked by an
    expert.
    Note: If the system is switched off
    manually by pressing the Traction
    Control System (TCS)/Electronic
    Stability Program (ESP) switch,
    the indicator light illuminates and
    remains on until the system is
    either switched back on or the
    ignition is switched off.

    If you are driving with snow chains
    or a spare wheel fitted, or if you are
    ‘rocking’ out of snow, it is
    recommended that you switch off

    ULTRASONIC PARK DISTANCE
    SENSOR

    The system consists of ultrasonic
    sensors in the rear bumper, one
    controller and a speaker. The
    system measures the distance to
    the closest obstacle when reversing
    and helps the driver to judge this
    distance correctly by audible
    signals.

    The park distance sensor is
    an auxiliary system which is
    not intended to relieve the driver
    of his responsibility for exercising
    due care and attention. In
    particular, some objects close to
    the vehicle (approx. 30 cm) and
    above or below the sensors may
    not be detected by the park
    distance sensor and cause
    damage to the vehicle. Ultrasonic
    waves, heavy rain and/or
    conditions causing disruptive
    reflections may lead to objects
    not being detected by the
    sensors. In addition, objects
    which absorb ultrasonic waves
    may not always be detected due
    to their unfavourable surface
    characteristics.
    The system is activated
    automatically after the ignition is
    switched on and the reverse gear is
    selected. A short tone will sound to
    indicate system readiness.

    112



  • Page 115

    Driving
    A system failure will be indicated
    by a deep continuous tone or by a
    deep tone sounding in three-second
    intervals. In both cases the system
    is not reliable. Have the system
    checked by an expert.

    Always keep the sensors free from
    dirt, ice and snow (do not clean
    with sharp objects).

    The measuring range is divided
    into five warning zones. As the
    distance to an obstacle reduces, a
    warning sounds, beginning as a
    slow bleep and increasing to a
    continuous tone.

    Roadside emergencies
    HAZARD FLASHER SWITCH

    If the engine temperature
    continues to rise, the system will
    alternate fuelling to the engine’s
    cylinders. The disabled cylinders
    then act as air pumps and help cool
    the engine.

    Press the switch to turn on or off.
    The hazard lights can be operated
    when the ignition is off.
    FAIL SAFE COOLING SYSTEM
    If the engine coolant supply
    becomes depleted, this feature
    allows the vehicle to be driven
    briefly without damage to the
    engine. This fail safe distance
    depends on the ambient
    temperature, vehicle load and
    terrain.
    Principle of operation

    When this occurs, the Engine
    warning light also illuminates.
    The vehicle will continue to operate
    but will have limited engine power
    and no air conditioning capability
    (if fitted).
    Continued operation will increase
    engine temperature and cause the
    engine to shut down completely.

    This is preceded by the
    Multi-function warning light:
    automatic transmission/cooling
    system flashing for 30 seconds.
    Stop the vehicle as soon as
    it is safe to do so.
    If the engine overheats, the
    temperature gauge will enter the
    red section and the Multi-function
    warning light: automatic
    transmission/cooling system will
    illuminate.

    114



  • Page 117

    Roadside emergencies
    When fail safe mode is activated:
    • Stop the vehicle as soon as
    possible.
    • Immediately turn off the engine
    to prevent severe engine damage.
    • Wait for the engine to cool.
    • Check the coolant level. Refer to
    the chapter Maintenance and
    care.
    • Have the vehicle checked by an
    expert immediately.

    FUEL INJECTION SYSTEM
    SHUT-OFF SWITCH
    (vehicles with a petrol engine)

    The fuel supply may be cut off as a
    result of an accident or sudden
    vibrations (e.g. collision when
    parking).
    The switch is located in the side
    panel in front of the right-hand
    door. The button will be raised
    when the switch is activated.

    Do not reset the fuel pump
    shut-off switch if you see or
    smell leaking fuel.
    Resetting the switch
    • Turn the ignition switch to
    position 0.
    • Check fuel system for leaks.
    • If no fuel leak is apparent, reset
    the switch by pushing in the button
    (see illustration).
    • Turn the ignition switch to
    position II. After a few seconds
    return the key to position I.
    • Make a further check for leaks in
    the fuel system.

    BULB REPLACEMENT
    Always switch off lights and
    ignition before replacing any bulb.
    Never touch the glass of the bulbs.
    Fit only bulbs having a UV filter.
    Always replace a faulty bulb with a
    new one of the same type. After
    replacing the bulb, check that the
    light operate correctly.
    Have the headlight
    alignment checked by an
    expert after each replacement of
    a bulb.
    On vehicles fitted with
    Xenon headlights, have
    your dealer change the headlight
    bulbs. There is a risk of injury due
    to high voltage.
    Adjusting Xenon headlights
    The headlights can be adjusted for
    driving on the left or right hand
    side of the road by an expert.

    CHANGING A WHEEL

    The vehicle jack must only
    be used to carry out wheel
    changes. Do not work under the
    vehicle when it is supported only
    by the jack.
    If your vehicle is fitted with
    directional tyres, make sure
    that the arrows on the tyres point
    in the direction of rotation when
    the vehicle is moving forwards.
    The arrows on both tyre sidewalls
    indicate the direction of rotation.
    If a spare wheel has to be fitted
    with the arrows pointing in the
    opposite direction to the direction of rotation, have the tyre remounted in the correct direction
    by an expert as soon as possible.

    • Park your vehicle in such
    a position that neither the
    traffic nor you are hindered or endangered when changing a wheel.
    • Set up a warning triangle.
    • Ensure that the vehicle is on
    firm, level ground.
    • If necessary, secure the vehicle
    with suitable chocks.
    • Point the front wheels straight
    ahead.
    • Switch off the ignition, apply
    the handbrake and select first or
    reverse gear. If the vehicle has an
    automatic transmission, select
    the P position.

    jump leads and a booster battery.

    Mount for rear towing eye

    It is possible to start the cold
    engine by towing or pushing the
    vehicle.

    When towing always drive off
    slowly and smoothly without
    jerking the towing vehicle.
    Excessive tow rope tension could
    result in damage to either vehicle.
    The ignition key must be
    set to position II when the
    vehicle is being towed so that the
    steering, direction indicator lights
    and brake lights are fully
    operational. Since the brake servo
    and the power steering do not
    operate with the engine switched
    off, you will need to exert greater
    force to the brake pedal and
    steering wheel. Make allowances
    for the increased braking distance
    and heavier steering.

    142

    • Turn the ignition key to
    position II.
    • Depress the accelerator pedal.
    • Depress the clutch pedal and
    select third gear.
    • Have the vehicle towed or pushed
    and release the clutch pedal slowly.
    It may be difficult to start a cold
    diesel engine by pushing or towing
    the vehicle, as the cold starting
    system cannot be activated if the
    battery is flat.

    (neutral).
    Never tow a vehicle with
    automatic transmission
    faster than 30 mph (50 km/h) or
    further than 30 miles
    (50 kilometres).

    Never tow a vehicle
    backwards with the drive
    wheels turning. If this instruction
    is not adhered to, it could cause
    damage to the automatic
    transmission.
    Push or tow starting is not
    possible on a vehicle fitted with
    automatic transmission. Use
    jump leads.

    If it is necessary to tow the vehicle
    a greater distance, the drive wheels
    must be lifted clear off the ground.
    The towed vehicle must face
    forwards when being towed.

    Maintenance and care
    Engine oil dipstick
    The oil consumption of your engine
    is influenced by many factors. New
    engines reach the normal value
    only after approximately 5 000 km.
    Diesel and high performance
    engines consume slightly more.
    Under high loads your engine will
    also consume more oil.
    Make sure the vehicle is standing
    on level ground. Check the engine
    oil before starting the engine. If the
    engine was running, switch it off
    and wait some minutes for the
    engine oil to flow back into the
    sump before checking it. Pull out
    the dipstick, wipe it with a clean,
    non-fluffy cloth, re-insert it
    completely and pull it out once
    more.
    If the level lies between the marks,
    there is no need to refill. Hot oil
    may exceed the MAX mark by
    some millimetres due to thermal
    expansion.
    If it lies at the MIN mark refill using
    only engine oil meeting the Ford
    specification. Approximately
    0.75 litre (diesel engine 1.5 litre) of
    engine oil will raise the level of the
    oil film on the dipstick from the
    MIN to the MAX mark.
    Top up to only the upper mark
    (MAX).
    For further details, refer to the
    chapter Capacities and
    specifications.

    the cap anti-clockwise. Do not open
    the cap while the engine is running.
    Do not use oil additives or
    other engine treatments.
    They are unnecessary and could,
    under certain conditions, lead to
    engine damage which is not
    covered by Ford Warranty.
    To close, turn the cap clockwise
    until it clicks.

    152

    Brake and clutch fluid systems are
    supplied from the same reservoir.
    The level of the fluid must lie
    between the MIN and MAX marks
    on the side of the reservoir.

    If the level falls below the MIN
    mark, the brake fluid level warning
    light will illuminate. Refer to the
    section Brake system warning
    light in the chapter
    Instrumentation.



  • Page 155

    Maintenance and care
    Cooling system reservoir

    The coolant should be added when
    the engine is cold. If coolant has to
    be added when the engine is hot,
    first wait 10 minutes for the engine
    to cool. Initially, unscrew the cap
    only one quarter turn to allow the
    pressure to escape. Wait a moment
    then open it fully.
    Take great care when
    adding coolant. Avoid
    spillage on any part of the engine.

    To avoid scalding, never
    remove the cap from the
    coolant reservoir when the engine
    is hot. Do not restart the engine
    until the problem has been
    eliminated.
    The coolant level is visible through
    the translucent reservoir. The
    coolant level should be between the
    MIN and the MAX mark when the
    engine is cold. Hot coolant expands
    and may, therefore, extend beyond
    the MAX mark.

    Add only coolant that meets the
    Ford Specification. For further
    details, refer to the chapter
    Capacities and specifications.

    Maintenance and care
    Do not operate the washer
    for more than 10 seconds at
    a time, and never when the
    reservoir is empty.

    Checking wiper blades

    The headlight washer system
    operates only when the exterior
    lights are switched on and the front
    screen washer is used. The system
    is supplied from the screen washer
    fluid reservoir.

    Adjusting screen washer jets

    Check the wiper blades on your
    vehicle for roughness by running
    the tip of your fingers over the edge
    of the blade. Clean the wiper blade
    lips with water applied with a soft
    sponge.
    Renewing wiper blades

    The eye ball jets can be adjusted
    precisely using a pin.
    The washer jet for the rear screen
    is located on the roof above the
    rear screen.
    To ensure the system functions
    properly, keep the washer jets free
    of snow and ice.
    Switching on the heated front
    screen defrosts both the front
    screen and the front washer jets.

    Lift the wiper arm and position the
    wiper blade at a right angle to the
    wiper arm. To remove, press the
    retaining clip in the direction of the
    arrow, disengage the wiper blade
    and pull it off the arm in the
    opposite direction.

    TYRES
    For your safety
    If you have to mount a kerb, do so
    slowly and, if possible, approach it
    with the wheels at right-angles to
    the kerb. Avoid steep and sharp
    edged obstacles. Do not scrub the
    tyre sidewalls when parking.
    Regularly examine the tyre surface
    for cuts, foreign bodies and uneven
    wear. An uneven tread wear pattern
    could indicate faulty wheel
    alignment.
    Refer to the chapter Capacities
    and specifications for permissible
    snow chains.

    WASHING YOUR VEHICLE
    The best procedure is brushless
    washing in a good car wash
    installation.
    In installations operating
    with high water pressure,
    water might be forced into the
    vehicle’s interior or parts may get
    damaged.
    Unscrew and remove the
    radio aerial before entering
    an automatic car wash. Switch off
    the heater blower to prevent
    contamination of the fresh air
    filter.
    If a waxing cycle is selected, please
    ensure that the wax is removed
    from the front screen afterwards.
    Cleaning the headlights
    To avoid damaging the clear plastic
    headlight lens do not use
    aggressive abrasives or chemical
    solvents. Do not wipe the lights
    when they are dry or use sharp
    objects to clean the lenses.
    Cleaning the rear screen
    To avoid damaging the heating
    elements when cleaning the inside
    of the rear screen use only a soft
    cloth or a damp chamois leather.
    Do not use solvent or sharp objects
    to clean the glass.

    156



  • Page 159

    Maintenance and care
    Cleaning seat belts
    Use interior cleaner or clean warm
    water. Dry naturally, away from
    artificial heat.
    Do not use chemical cleaners,
    boiling water, bleach, or dye. Do
    not allow moisture to penetrate the
    seat belt retractor mechanism.
    PAINT CHIP REPAIR
    Paint damage from road chippings
    or minor scratches can be repaired
    using aerosol paint spray or
    touch-up paint. The Ford
    Accessory range is recommended.
    Observe the application instruction
    on each product.
    To retain vehicle warranty
    on paintwork, remove
    apparently harmless looking but
    often aggressive particles from
    the paintwork immediately – e.g.
    bird droppings, tree resins, insect
    remains, tar spots, road salt and
    industrial fall-out.

    BODY PAINTWORK
    PRESERVATION
    Wax the body paintwork of your
    vehicle once or twice a year. This
    will help retain the glossy
    paintwork finish and water droplets
    will run off more easily.
    When polishing your vehicle
    ensure that polish does not
    come into contact with the plastic
    surfaces as it may prove difficult
    to remove.
    Do not polish the vehicle in
    strong sunshine.
    Do not apply polish to front or rear
    screen, as this may result in poor or
    noisy wiper action.

    ENGINE OIL
    Engine oil change
    Ford/Motorcraft Formula E
    SAE 5W-30 engine oil.
    Alternative engine oils with the
    viscosity SAE 5W-30 meeting the
    requirements of Ford Specification
    WSS-M2C913-B may also be used.

    162

    Engine oil top-up
    If you are unable to find an oil that
    meets this specification, you must
    use an oil of the viscosity
    SAE 5W-30, SAE 5W-40 or
    SAE 10W-40, according to ambient
    temperatures, meeting the
    requirements of either
    ACEA A1/B1 or ACEA A3/B3
    specifications. Use of these oils
    may result in longer cranking
    periods, reduced engine
    performance, reduced fuel
    economy, and increased emission
    levels.

    Snow chains
    Use only small link snow chains on
    the driving wheels (front).
    Snow chains may only be fitted to
    185/65 R 14 tyres. On the ST170,
    snow chains may only be fitted to
    195/55 R 16 tyres.
    Do not exceed 30 mph (50 km/h).
    Remove the chains immediately on
    snow-free roads.
    When using snow chains, vehicles
    with the Traction Control System
    (TCS) or Electronic Stability
    Program (ESP) may exhibit some
    unusual driving characteristics
    which can be avoided by switching
    the system off.
    Refer to the section Traction
    Control System (TCS)/Electronic
    Stability Program (ESP).
    In order to avoid damaging
    full-diameter wheel covers, they
    should be removed before driving
    with snow chains.
