General Discussion / WDS Touch screen Calibrate
« Last post by Dave2302 on Today at 16:37:58 »
Hi Guys,

OK, so I've got the WDS fired up after it's long lay up.
I had to "jump start" it's Battery Pack, by removing it and Charging the Cells for a little while but now it has booted up and is doing the Battery Conditioning Cycle, and looks like it will work ok, but I have a problem lol

Touch Screen Calibration is so far out that I can't get at the icons in the corner, to even hit the stuff in the centre of the screen I have to touch it about 25mm down and to the left, so no chance of hitting the WDS Icon in top left of screen :(

I know there is a way to recalibrate it but it's been so long I can't remember  ;D

Anyone know how ??

Cheers Dave
The Boost Performance ones are flat/thicker than the XR4i spares ones.
The only issue I had with them is getting them lined up and stuck to the cam covers themselves before fitting  :-X

What have you got in the way of crankcase ventilation on your turbo setup?
General Discussion / 24v boa rocker cover gaskets which ones ?
« Last post by 3drpete on Today at 11:50:20 »
As title guys , after turboing the car I’ve gained a few oil leaks , I reused my old rocker gaskets so think I need to treat myself to a new set , just wondering peoples thoughts on the tried and tested ones ? Boost performance sell a flat gasket which sounds better but I’m assuming they don’t come with the bolt gaskets / rubbers ?

Hi Paul,

They can't pick Car up until Thursday, and I have Delphi DS so I might see if that will do it.

Now I am doing more and more Various Car Coding work, Keys, Modules, Programming etc, I have realised the need for "Dealer Level Kit", also realised the bunch of shortcomings of Snap On.  Snap On simply does not do a lot of what they say it will :(

I currently have BMW INPA ICOM, VAG Com, MB Star, and next will be JLR ;)

I have looked at IDS, but the various subscriptions needed work out expensive, and I'm not certain how much IDS will do off line ??

What is Forscan ?? is it just a Code Scanner or does it do Module Programming ?? Subscription or Offline ??
I have ELM lead with switch with BMW stuff ;)

I left the WDS on all night, and came out this morning, it has got past the Windows 98 Screen now, but now shows Error Code 2217, I'm going to do digging in a minute, I've got a funny feeling this may be Batteries, which I expect I'll need to replace as it's been powered down for so long ;)

Cheers Dave

Hello Dave,

It maybe a good idea to buy a ELM327 with a selector switch and use Forscan.

At least the fiesta is running again.

Hi Paul,

Big thank you, Transceiver fixed it, plug and play ;) Car now starting fine with original key :)

The new key however, programmed the Radio Central locking no sweat, but the Snap On went through the motions of Coding the chip to PATS, but right at the end it reported an error, tried this 3 times, 20 minute wait each time  :'( no dice, so I've swapped the HDD from the Jaguar to the Ford one in WDS now that won't work !! Came up with windows 98 screen, did feck all else, then screen black and 3 LED's on but won't do anything  :angry:

They're taking the Car off for MOT later this week, I'll have to resolve the Key issue another time too busy for WDS messing right now  :rolleyes:

Cheers for now,
