  1. Hi! I accidentally landed in your Youtube channel and I immediately subscribe there. You help me a lot by watching your Youtube videos regarding Ecosport and also reading your blog post. Kudos to you Mr. Anthony! 😊


  2. Good am sir.
    A third party car alarm was installed to my ecosport yesterday.
    I’ve noticed something, I locked it thru the remote of the new alarm. Then after 1 minute, I unlocked it again. When I opened the door, the factory car alarm sound off. I quickly pressed the unlocked key of my old remote. Then it stopped. Is this normal? It happened most of the time. The only solutions I did was either to press the unlocked from my old remote or start the engine. Is there a way to deactivate the sound of the factory car alarm?


    • I was told that such behavior is normal. Apparently (according to a Ford technician) they have no way of by-passing the factory alarm (which is good news). I guess you’ll have to improvise for now :)


  3. Hi Sir,
    I want to subscribe. I tried to tap on that email add space to get password pero ayaw? Pano kaya. Please help.

    Ecosport owner ako.

    Thank you


    • I believe you are referring to the place where you attach a tow eye or tow hook (supplied tool along with the jack and wrench), so you could pull another car (or be pulled by another car). There is another slot on the front bumper. Both are connected directly to the main frame of the vehicle. I’ll be featuring that soon.
