Looks to be from the windscreen, it was replaced this year so found the company who replaced and they are going to the garage on Monday to have a look, test it for leaks and possibly replace.

If it is the screen, I do hope that you will be pressing the windscreen company to pick up the bill for the rewiring.

BTW I would still check the sealant between the panels as it is a p*ss-poor job normally.

I've now changed both clutch switches and am now getting a "Transmission Malfunction" warning. Does anyone know if this wiring in the footwell has anything to do with my manual gearbox, cars in the shop at the moment, mechanics not coming Up with anything.

My Kuga has been at the garage for a week now and they can't find the cause!! Brake switch, clutch sensor both replaced but to no avail, now moving on to checking all the wiring underneath the steering wheel.

Does anyone know if you can call Ford for advice on known faults?
Have you found the solution? My car's still in the shop, aint getting anywhere, cheers

Hi, My 2011 Kuga failed to start two weeks ago just as you described. I knew the clutch switch was working because when the clutch was pressed the clutch notification disappeared from the dash but the car wouldn’t start. I took the car to my local dealer and booked it in for an hours diagnostic £102, after two and half days of searching for the fault and speaking with for technicians they found my keyless vehicle module (KVM) was at fault. £738 later problem fixed so far. I will post an update if it fails again.

Just to update you that the water damage to the Kuga was so bad it was a write off as a full re wire would of been the only option which was beyond economical repair! Looks like the pollen filter sealant was the cause as we had the windscreen checked and that was fine. I would advise anyone to NOT buy a Mk1 Kuga as this has been a nightmare for us!!
