Dash Cam
I want to start by saying a massive thank you to all of you on there for the advise and assistance.

I decided to go for the Viofo A119 v2 (front only cam) as it seemed a really good camera for the funds I had available to invest at this time. I decided on the one with GPS and the Anti-glare filter.

Memory Card
I went with the VIOFO 64GB High Speed MLC Micro SDXC U3 Memory Card (lets hope this is ok long term). I purchased this card from Amazon UK. ( :link: VIOFO 64GB High Speed MLC Micro SDXC U3 Memory Card: Camera & Photo)

ABS & disks
Last week I was breaking from about 60 mph when in dry conditions I crossed a strip across the road of different material and the ABS activated. The strip was only a foot wide so the ABS was not needed. The ABS then didn't reactivate the brakes, so I basically had no brakes.  I was braking moderately at the time but had to press quite hard on the brake pedal  to reactivate the brakes.  By the time I had reacted and the brakes had reacted I must have travelled 50yds or so without braking.
 This is the 2nd time something like this has happened and it was very scary.  I took it to the local main dealers yesterday and they could not find any fault with the ABS. 
Has anyone had a similar problem and if so did you get it fixed.

Hello this is my first post. I have been looking at your forum for a few weeks now and have made the plunge to post my first post. I have trawled the internet, asked dealers all to no avail, so Iím hoping that someone on here can answer my question regarding Hands-free Bluetooth Calls.
If I have my Samsung S8+ phone in my car, with all of the latest updates, in a 2018 I30 PD2. When I am  connected to Bluetooth I am able to receive calls via the head unit as I would expect. I can answer the phone and hang up using the steering wheel controls and speak hands-free with the caller. No issues at all. However, if I try to initiate a call using the Voice Recognition button on the steering wheel, I get a message on my head-unit saying that ď[b...

Hey guys.
I'm a new member although I have followed quite a lot of the posts on this forum since I've owned my I30 over the years.

I've searched high and low on the internet and through this forum and I haven't been able to find much about my issue at all. so I thought id ask the experts (you guys)

Basically, the immobilizer dash light is on permanently at the minute. It is even on with the key removed from the ignition. and my car will not start.

I had the Roadside recovery guy out to see if he could start the car, he couldn't. He did pull me some codes, however.

The code's I am getting are;
P1690 - Immobilizer Smartra Error. < the Culprit.

Also, two other codes whi...

Key Fob
Hi there.

I have a 2009 i30cw wagon. Earlier today, my remote was working fine, went to use it tonight and it wonít work. Have tried both keys and a new battery. The red light shows on the button, but it wonít lock or unlock the doors. I have tried putting the ignition to accessories and holding down the unlock button and then again holding down the lock button but still no luck. Went for a 20 minute drive and that also hasnít fixed the problem. We also have a 2011 manual hatch that hasnít been driven for a few weeks and the key for that has stopped working also. Does anyone know what could be causing this? TIA

Hey there guys and gals,

I just came across your forum tonight and am hoping someone may be able to help me out.

I have recently bought an i30 2009 hatch and it has a standard stereo system, looks similar to this:

(this isn't mine, I just found it on google)

It also has a Bluetooth Phone piece wired above the driver door (BT V01). I can pair via bluetooth fine on my Android phone and my girlfriends iPhone also pairs to it fine. However when it's paired it just beeps repeated...

ESC light
Administrator Comment From :link: SOLVED: ESC light on at 50 mph - every time - help needed

Hi, new on here but have been meaning to get round to registering for a while to see if I could get help with a few bits.

Today I noticed the ECS light on permanently (Only ever seen it flicker when it has gone into action once or twice) Not sure what speed I had been doing just before that as I'm not sure what point it actually came on.

Switched ignition off at lights, restarted engine and it was gone. Then without noticing when, it was back. Again - Turned off ignition at lights and when I got the chance put foot down to see if a certain spe...

I am thinking it's the resistor  (I had a mk 1 focus  that did the same  so I changed it a few times  ) pls could I have a second opinion?. And I also I'm not  sure where this resistor is located in the i30 , I've not tinkered with this Motor much  so any help  would be appreciated.
