    XF 4.1 popping!

    My blue xf had a stuck Open a smidge exhaust valve , so Previous owner removed both intake and exhaust pushrods to that cylinder.. only found out after 12 months driving ! it was only after it bent and popped out the pushrods on another cylinder and ran like absolute crap that I became aware of it . driving it with one cylinder down for so long I just thought it had just a 3.3 “ 200 motor in it that was a bit tired . bunged another head on with ALL 6 cylinders running and the Ute ran like a champ

    Bf zf auto reverse light switch

    Also ,, in the owners manual , it goes on to say that the reverse beeper is manually adjustable for how loud it is ,,, this is done with the icc volume knob ,,, " the radio " . turn the radio OFF ,, select reverse gear and adjust the volume . The beeps " should "come through the rear speakers . Its to chime a few times to let you know its armed ,, Mine just sort of gives off a low quiet electrical hum ,, like an old fridge that kicks in . When the trailer plug is reconnected to the harness ,, " down near right tail light ,,," the tone of this noise goes up a few octaves ,,,, " changes pitch "

    Bf zf auto reverse light switch

    have been through the trailer plug bit ,,, they have ,, inside the britax end connector , a small magnet up in the spring loaded lid , " see pic " ,,, ignore it being a holden one in pic when the magnet is away from the earth ,,, the plug hole thats offset from the others ,,,it disables the reverse park sensors . So the car does not recognise theres something close to you and beep incessantly. I have disconected the trailer harness down near the right tail light ,,simple plug . no change .
