ok so i have just done the hell of all jobs on my XG XR6 ute and change the heater core in it..... :evil:
now i have stuck it all back together and i swear i didnt miss any wiring plugs or earth''s but the car wont start. :roll:
i turn the key on and all dash lights are normal appart from the smart lock light which blinks in this combination: 1 1 1 1 - 1 1 1 1 - 1 1 1 1 - 11111111111111111111111forever
i assume it is code 4 or 444.
i have proceded with the smartlock reset (key on for 1 hour) and got the car to turn over but when i turn key of again, the code comes back. :cry: i cant find anything on fordmods to tell me what the code means or how to fix it.

thanks

Did you turn the key to accessory or to red for the hour? Key needs to be on red. Does your interior dome light work? Check all fuses? And relays?

Seems to be a electrical fault with the smart module may need a bypass module to start

Code 4 is defined as

"Electronic Lock Assembly To 'Smartlock' Connector Open
Electronic Lock Assembly I/O Circuit Open
Electronic Lock Assembly Power Supply Circuit Open"

So with that... Did you plug in the 4 pin plug that plugs into the ignition barrel that activates smartlock?

Cheers,
Tim

OK, just an update, after pulling the dash out twice, I found the plug and chucked it back in. All I need is the xh serp belt n she's good to go. Thanks everyone for your help. :D

No worries man...

At least you came to us with a code... Most people give you half a story so it makes it much harder to say check this... In your case, code 4,check the barrel assembly... Once I read that I reckoned you'd left the 4 pin plug undone...

Cheers,
Tim
