About the Ka (incl. Ka+)
The Ka is a small car manufactured by the American Automaker Ford since 1996.
Initially built as a three door hatchback the Ka could be also purchased as a two door convertible sold as the StreetKa.
Filling a gap in the Ford range of vehicles, this little car was intended to be a cheap alternative to some of their pricier options; with its price tag and size, the Ka went into competition with cars like the Toyota Yaris, Vauxhall Corsa, Daihatsu Cuore, Daihatsu Sirion, Volkswagen Polo, Volkswagen Fox, Daewoo Matiz and the Hyundai Getz.
For the time, the Ka had a bold and instantly identifiable design, with the developers wanting to make a smiling back arrangement.
Handling of this vehicle was good, due to its suspension and steering arrangements, the car was excellent around corners and gripping to the road.
From 1996, the Ka was a basic vehicle with the option to add upgrades such as power steering, adjustable seating, passenger airbags, central locking, power windows, air conditioning and adjustable rear seat headrests.
After a few years on the market, the Ka became the bestselling car in its class in the UK and that included the Ka2.
Second generations sold onwards from 2008 and had an entirely different look. Loosing its trademark large, curved bumpers, this vehicle was styled to be more in line with Ford’s design language, a style which carried on development into the third models.
Ford Kas were plagued with a controversial advertising campaign that showed a pigeon swooping in to defecate on the car’s paintwork when the hood pops up and fatally smacks the bird. The second advert was even worse, with the electric sunroof opening up to entice a curious cat, when the cat looks in through the roof, the car snaps the roof back, beheading the animal! Both adverts carried the tagline ‘Ford SportKa. The Ka’s evil twin.’ After a number of complaints, they were removed from the air.
Some common fault codes showing on the vehicle are:
- P0136 – Low voltage from the downstream O2 sensor
- P0101 – An issue with the Mass Air Flow
- P0300 – Random misfiring in multiple cylinders
- P0016 – Generic, the camshaft position sensor is showing a lack of correspondence to the CKP signal
- P0335 – The PCM doesn’t detect good sensor operations from the crankshaft position sensor.
