    New to this page and hoping someone has electrical knowledge……the wife’s 03 BA XR6 has problems with body control module / info screen…..at first the stereo would drop the drivers speaker out on occasions, so we fitted an aftermarket head unit…..later the screen would go blank so we lost demisters, A/C etc, at first it wasn’t often nor for long, this has now changed and nothing switched from that panel has worked for a while…..I presume the body control module has died so the entire unit needs to be replaced, I believe a replacement unit has to be programed to the car….any ideas as to what’s involved, cost & who can do it (Canberra), just any auto sparky or is it Ford only?

        So my Valve stems have obviously eaten a way, and bits of oil get into the combustion chamber, not big amounts, but has a bit of smoke, oil only drops every month, I chuck about a litre in each month, that brings it back to proper levels. Now it got quoted at $1700 to fix that, but wouldn't it be cheaper to just get a whole new BA engine installed instead at the price? As he said, they could take the head out, and the guides might be screwed which would then be another $600 so he said its a gamble.

        So, how much would I be looking at for the best price for a whole new engine installed.

          Need advice please

          Need advice please!

          I have a 2005 BA and currently running rough in idle - Whole car shakes type of rough! When I'm at speed the car also maintains speed without throttling but the engine shake isn't prominent at speed. Under the hood with engine on, I hear a hissing sound like it's pulling a vacuum at front intake area. I cleaned my throttle valve recently seeing if that would improve the engine shake and it did slightly but the hissing is still there. I have diagnosed it to be an intake manifold gasket failure which is drawing more air hence the rough engine. Am I on the right track? Am I missing something else I am not aware of? Anyone else had similar issue with the BA? Any advice would be appreciated before I go ahead with the gasket change. Cheers!

                  Hi Folks — BA BF Ford Falcon Enthusiast Forum

                  Hi Folks,

                  I bought a Pursuit 250, to use as a work vehicle..... may as well drive what you love driving everyday ;-)

                  Long story short is..... I think I fuc!@# up......it's just Tooo low for me to use, so I think I may need a B series FPV PURSUIT XR8 instead :-(

                  So if anyone is up for a straight SWAP, let me know, and we can swap photos, details ect.

                  These will ONLY GO UP IN VALUE, as there were ONLY 248ish of them made :-)

                  Blueprint Blue is the colour.

                  Any thoughts APPRECIATED

                        Hey guys — BA BF Ford Falcon Enthusiast Forum

                        Hey guys...

                        BA falcon with the sunroof and ive picked up a rattle from the rails (or some mechanism inside the roof linning.

                        Rattles when it is closed but if it's slid right open the rattle goes away...

                        Does anyone know exactly what it is and how much it was to fix?

                        It's honestly the most annoying rattle

                        ever!!! It's only just started doing it..

                        2005 BA xr6 only 100thou k's

                        Triple option dealership requested Herrod Motorsport upgrades head to tip exhaust,

                        suspension and brakes..

                        All the best plugs, filters, sensors and gaskets money can buy, every rubber and mount replaced too..

                        Runs like a dream but have this damn rattle now

                                    Alright so I just got her back after having the whole transmission replaced as the torque converter died. Now sometimes when I am slowing down it gets pretty bumpy and has some shuttering. Done a lot of research online which points towards it being the rim size for the car. Some say they had 17 or 18s and had shuttering then went back to 16s and no shuttering. It could also apparently be ball joints, master cylinder needing adjusting. Bushings.

                                    I dunno, I have no idea. What do you guys think?

                                      Does your key not spring back to the on position after starting the car causing your accessories to not work (Electric Windows, Radio ETC…)

                                      Has your ignition switch fallen apart preventing your car from starting, or turning off if the engine is already running when it happens?

                                      Perhaps the key is springing back from start to accessories and you have to hold the key in the on position to allow the car to continue to run.

                                      Have you been told you will need to replace the steering column in some cases costing over $2000 for a new column supplied and installed and losing your car to the repair center for at least 1 day sometimes more?

                                          So ive got this new ba xr6 Falcon, factory sunroof... Its playing up at the moment, hesitating and my "c" and "1" and "2" buttons aren't working properly...

                                          Ive had one before but it worked fine..

                                          Annnywaayyyy, im wandering if peeps could check theirs and tell me if this is shutting properly as in the pics...thats how it looks when the car turns off but I don't remember my last one sitting that low? Maybe I'm wrong...

                                          Been through a touchless car wash and no leaks but it just seems low...

                                          Ive tried the factory reset (holding c until it beeps when tilted open)

                                          Removed fuse, disconnected battery...

                                          Still playing up....

                                          150 bucks for a service from the sunroof guys...

                                          Anyone had this problem?

                                          Photos are facing towards the back of the car...

                                              Question - BA Xr6 and BF Fairlane. Both have had all the bushes and bearings/whatever in rear end replaced (all of them) because they started clunking about, and both still have the clunks after, the Xr6 has undampened THUDS on left and right side depending on what hits bumps, and the Fairlane has a car shattering THUD on right side when going over little things like reflectors on middle of road.

                                              Shocks are all done, everything is tight, can't work this shit out. Mechanics can't find anything, so wondering if anyone had similar.

                                                Bought this 2002 BA XR6 yesterday for $1,800. (It's not for me it's for my other half)

                                                A bargain & a half for 5 months rego.

                                                The body on it is a bit how you going, mismatched front bumper, but paint is in tact & will look brand new with a buffer.

                                                Minor issue, ICC says code. Just gonna take it to ford & pay em the petty amount of money for them to regain access.

                                                Major issue, gearbox slips in and out of gear, mostly in 3rd & 4th. Occasionally at a complete stop it'll stall & the car will shut off so it was a boring trip home. I feel really bad because I picked this for him. He really loves it and other than the stupid issues it's a magnificent car. The seller wouldn't let me drive it to the RTA which now makes sense but it didn't carry on and slip on the way there. Some dodgy middle eastern bloke...

                                                Now I am thinking I will replace the transmission fluid and filter, as well as do a full service, clean the throttle body and TPS, coolant flush ect

                                                The gearbox doesn't make any noise what so ever so with that and the symptoms I think it's nothing more than a shitty fluid issue. But I will find out.

                                                I think it's well worth it.

                                                    So today I detailed a basically new Golf GTI, maybe a year or two old. It got me thinking. People pay a big amount of money for these European cars.

                                                    (Please note I am not putting shit on this car, it's nice to drive)

                                                    But I noticed that the stitching & fabric had already started to come undone with many fly always, and the carpet was already starting to tear apart and get worn down. Leather was very worn out & the plastic bits were very flimsy. According to owner, drive shafts are currently also clunked out, differential is a bit shabby, has already been back and fourth from the dealership with problems, the bonnet doesn't even line up with one of the guards

                                                    My car turns 13 in April next year, (even though I'm only the second owner) but everything has stayed pretty good in the interior, the carpet is perfect, hasn't got any wear spots, no wear on my leather wheel, pretty much the opposite to what's happening to this Golf, have never really had a serious issue with it mechanical wise and books have no statement of any major replacements and repairs

                                                    So it made me think people are paying quite good money for these cars but aren't making their money worth while?

                                                    My car brand new was nearly $40,000 ($38,000)

                                                    This gold brand new is around $44,000

                                                    In no way am I trying to say that the Falcon is perfect and flawless, it's more comparing the status and price of these euro sports cars to an Aussie sedan
