Did everything right with BMax - servicing, long journeys, TLC. 13 reg from new. Engine Management light and Ford had no answer. (25 faults). Currently it's the Fuel Tank fuel pump. Model 1.0 ecoboost. Hoping that this was the root cause of all the difficulties.

My fuel tank fuel pump ""˜blew' last week. It was caused by frayed wires in the loom which blew fuses and then the pump. My reliable local garage described the wiring state as ""˜shocking' - the fault is potentially life threatening since all power would be lost. Fortunately it happened in a car park. Will take this up with Ford (Bmax from new, regularly serviced 61k over 5 years). If fraying wites are a problem, Ford need to address it.

Depending on how many cases there are, this should be a safety recall as Ford wil be liable for any injuries sustained as a result of a known safety defect.Edited by: cianpars

Hi, has anyone had any more experience with this problem?
Just been towed home by the AA, sudden fuel input failure with the same faults quoted in one of the earlier posts. I'm interested to know if more has happened with this problem.

There certainly seems to be a pattern developing.

Unhappy Bmax Petrol fuel pump failure

My 62 Bmax Eco boost 1.0 just suffered a petrol pump failure at just over 36000 miles and it stopped pretty suddenly with me fortunately in the inside lane just after two warning lights showed. It was on a narrow 4lane bridge so caused quite a bit of chaos until police rolled me back off the hill. Finally home after 7 hours so quite alarming and frightening to think where I could have been driving such as in the fast lane of a motorway. Garage said they fitted a new lift pump and it cost me £400. Any others had similar recently?
