  1. With you there London. My 11 plate and I did 160,000 happy miles, and I'm sure they are like the tardis and bigger on the inside!
  2. They can't identify the fault. What vintage is your car London? I had an 11 plate Titanium X and I had weird issues caused when the battery was iffy.
  3. Cheers Hammy. Will do that tomorrow. To be honest, I know (just forgot to mention) that a restart clears it. J
  4. Hi all I have the above vehicle - 67 plate with just under 30K on the clock. Every now and then when the car is cold I'll get an amber message pop up about transmission limited function or a red warning saying service transmission now. I know the oil change is due at the next service, but this has been happening since I had the car (had 6K when I got it). It's been into the dealer (Stoneacre) who cannot find any relevant fault codes to indicate an actual fault. I've asked about any software updates, to be told there are none available. Has anyone come across this? Jeremy
  5. 0049 136 40283 is what came up on my phone The caller was definitely not German!!
  6. Hi Had a possible suspect call on my landline claiming to be from Openreach saying there were errors on my Internet connection. I work in IT and as soon as I mentioned this she hung up. The giveaway was that the call came from a German number: 0049 ***** 238 (will post the full number if admins okay it) Just thought I'd mention it Jeremy
  7. Hi 16/10/19. Very poor reception on my TV. Re-tuned, but then found I had very few channels (even BBC1/2 were missing) I called the freeview helpline to find there had been an issue at Bilsdale transmitter, but it was now resolved I ended up unplugging TV from aerial socket, re-tuning, then re-plugging in TV and re-tuning to fix it Thought I'd post this in case anyone has the same issue
  8. I had a similar issue with my 11 plate Mondeo TX. Random electrical issues, hazards would come on, etc The cause was the battery not taking charge and therefore screwing up the electrics. The car was five years old when I had to change the battery. All was fine after that. When the AA came out to test it, they said it should have been pulling 60 amps from the alternator, but it was pulling 10! I'd get the battery checked
  9. You should probably make a complaint to whichever train company manages the station
  10. Hi all, Anyone ever done/tried this? We are a small charity based in North Yorkshire and I'm keen to know if anyone has had any success with this? Jeremy
  11. While Ryanair would love some extra pilots, the complication is that they operate a Boeing fleet while Monarch was an Airbus fleet (or vice versa).
  12. And lets not forget the 1,900 souls who have lost their jobs 12 weeks before Christmas
  13. As a regular hotel user myself, I wonder how this hotels guests would feel about the way they treat their staff.
  14. I have an 11 Plate Mondeo, and I had the same, It needed a new back box only. I took it to my local Ford Dealer and they fitted new (non-Ford) back box for far less than £800 I did take it to a type/battery/exhaust place but they said they couldn't do it.
  15. At the very least it is probably breaching licensing conditions
