Check this link, there are loads of different threads about this issue but this one has a useful picture of the relay box.

Hi we have had our Ralliart since October last year. From the moment I drove it on the test drive I fell in love with it! We first saw one at a dealer in Devon when we were on holiday in mid-oct and I quite liked the look of it - loved it from the front not too sure about the back! We were looking to swap my Focus ST (which I also loved too!). With my job (I'm a church minister) and a nearly 3 year old son (so access to a car seat in the back required) I need to have a 5 door car and as it is our only car (the other half has a work van) we needed something that could be used daily. We thought about an Evo but the dealer showed us the RA which he thought would be more usable for what we needed.
We test drove one back up at home (in Leicestershire) and bought it on the spot - a miracle for me cause I normally need a while to make a decision on a car. Also helped that it was the last day of the month and think the dealer needed one more sale to get his target - as he threw in all sorts of goodies and gave a fantastic part-ex for my ST!!
I too have noticed how many adoring looks it gets and also the confusion in causes - looks sort of like an Evo from the front but people can't work out what's different about it!
'Fraid I can't give you any info on anything techie (that's the other halfs domain!) all I know is that I use it almost day have put 4,200 miles on the clock and it still makes me smile as much to drive as it did on day 1!!!

"Hi Xorro
Just a suggestion but could you edit the thread to add the user name of all RA owners who post on this thread at your first post on the thread. That way we can all easily see who has replied without having to read through the whole thread. So the list would look something like;
Xorro
andy h
steviejames
stundies
Paulathome
Evomentalist
Rallyday
Davy_gsr
SpikeMY09GSR

Did I miss anyone?
Maybe we could organise a meet at some point in the future once we have a few more owners on the list, there are another 3 on the register that I can see"

You can add us to the list - ours is 60 plate and black
We'd certainly be up for a meet.... work and child allowing!!

I'm wondering whether its the crank position sensor.
Ours does that occassionally - normally when it's a bit damp!!

The Ralliart is only available as a Sportback - unlike in the US where they get the choice.

Yep, although I might not always remember to update it

Mine did it again this week, it started eventually but the check engine light came on and stayed on for a day or so. So need to take it to the dealer for them to check the fault codes. I will let you know what they find, if anything.

Nice one Davy, any other RA owners getting a remap, it does make a huge difference?

I forwarded my dealer some links from the US forums about the relay. They called and said they would look into it, but that was way over a week ago now, I will have to chase them up.

Strangely, weather conditions don't seem to affect my car, it's quite happy to not start on hot, sunny, dry days!

Where did you have the re-map done and is it one that can be removed if ever taken back to the dealers for any warranty work?

I have bought some EVO X GSR alloys for mine. Reading the evolutionm forum, the best size tyre to fit, albeit with a slight stretch is the 235/40/18 or 235/35/18. I'm also gonna fit some Tein S springs but the US recommend rolling the 'fenders'. Does anyone know of a garage near Crewe that they recommend to do this. Here is a pic of what it might look like although I am thinking of changing the colour of the alloys.


and here is a pic of what it looks like now standard..

Hot Hatch corner in Longton say they can roll, never used them so can not say if they are any good?
