GUIDE FOR ELM327 INTERFACE AND ELMFF2 + ELMconfig (RUSSIAN PROGRAMS)

What i will attempt to do is a guide for the FF2 (russian program) which will allow you to plug in a ELM 327 interface code reader into your focus Mk2 / Mk2.5 and update various parts of your car.
PLEASE HELP WITH THE GUIDE IF YOU CAN.
Program is made by some very talented guys from Russia

DISSCLAIMER: I WILL NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR ANYTHING IN THIS POST , YOU UNDERTAKE USING THIS GUIDE AT YOUR OWN RISK.

This will be a trial an error on my part , i will only tell you what i have clicked on. I will do my best ( with help from other people) to translate from Russian to English.

I would first like to thank Pidu for finding such an amazing program and initial translating smile.png

UPDATES DONE ON MY CAR SO FAR.
In the center speedo information cluster:
RADIO RDS INFORMATION + CD TRACK INFORMATION
ACTIVATED PHONE INCOMING CALL INFORMATION
VOICE CONTROL BUTTON INFORMATION
REVERSING SOUND ACTIVATION (turned this back off very annoying)
GEAR SHIFT CHANGE INDICATOR --HEC firmware above S508 to work
REAL ENGINE TEMPERATURE
WASHER EMPTY BOTTLE WARNING (no wiring on my car)
FORD ECO MODE (working on my 2010 Mk2.5)


Gem Module
Auto door locking at 5mph , now i have changed to 10mph with ELMconfig
Auto heated window screen at low outside temperature
Adjusted curtesy light dimming time
Adjusted Walk home lighting time

ON GOING GUIDE BASIC USE.
Install USB drivers for your ELM327 ( you may have to search for WIN 7 drivers) but it does work on Windows 7 smile.png
Plug ELM327 into Diagnostics port and USB into your Laptop. Let drivers install.
Run ELM FF2 program and configure as follows.
Insert your VIN number
Set Port Number ( you may have to write (COM1) not just 1 etc. Set Bit rate 38400.
TURN IGNITION ON (do not start car)
Click ONLINE.

How to Modify the ELM 327 Adapter.

First peel off the label to reveal 4 crosshead screw and remove them.
20120310105051.jpg

Unplug the connector socket from the board.
20120310105214.jpg

Wiring Diagram
wire-1.jpg
Use the wiring Diagram as a guide .
you need to first cut 6 wires about 3 amp will do approx 6 inches long , different colours would be better , if not then mark them individually (14 , 11 , 6 , 3 , Hcan , and Mcan.
connections are numbered.
20120310105306.jpg

Cut protective shrink wrap off 14 and DE-Solder the wire.
20120310111635.jpg
Shrink wrap all wires
Solder Number 14 wire to number 14 on the connector side
Solder Number 11 wire to spare number 11 on the connector side
Solder Number Lcan wire to the original number 14 wire you DE-Soldered.

Cut protective shrink wrap off number 6 and DE-Solder the wire.
Solder Number 6 wire to number 6 on the connector side
Solder Number 3 wire to spare number 3 on connector side
Solder Number Hcan wire to the original number 6 wire you DE-Soldered.
20120310115626.jpg

Cut a small section of the box out to allow room for the cables to leave the box.
Plug the connector back into the board and route wires and place lid back on the ELM
Screw casing back together.
20120310120354.jpg

Place sticker back on .
No switch yet so the wires will have to be manually joined until my switch arrives , you will need a Two pole on/off/on type switch
[url="http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/160697063015?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT"]http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/160697063015?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT[/url]

Tape together for can-H setup as follows.
Number 3 wire to can-H wire
Number 11 wire to can-L wire

tape up number 6 wire
tape up number 14 wire

Of course with a switch in place you can easily switch between to two configs.

Next step is to send commands to the ELM 327 to make it adjust to the new setup config

Preee

*EDIT* NOTE PuTTy is not needed for ELMconfig Program , once Elm327 is connected then select configure from the menu on startup of ELMconfig , this will send all commands to re-configure your ELM327.

 

Configuring the ELM 327

Download PuTTY
[url="http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/download.html"]http://www.chiark.gr...y/download.html[/url]

Run Program

Plug your ELM 327 into your computer RED light will come on.

Select Serial
Select your COM port
Set Bit rate 38400
Click OPEN
puttyf.jpg


Black CMD window will open
Type the next series of commands into the window one at a time and hit enter
atpp2asv38
atpp2aon
atpp2csv81
atpp2con
atpp2dsv04
atpp2don


Each time you hit enter PuTTY should respond with OK

What i saw was >K followed by what i typed each time , i had to over write the commands each time twice before i got each one to OK or >K

Under logging before you click open you can set it to show you a log fiile and you will then see if each command has been excepted.

As your typing two leds will flash on the ELM 327.

Once you have finished .

unplug and go to your car , plug in the ELM into the Diagnostics port .
Configure your PC to Russian Language time and zone and keyboard , this will require a reboot , remove any password you have on your PC , mine would not let me log back in until i figured out how to change lang to UK to input my password lol.

Start PC
Start FF2


Plug in USB , enter you VIN as in post one with port number and bit rate 38400
Click ONLINE
Click BCM tab
Click Read Car Configuration. Part 1
Your Options will now be available
Click part 2
Click read car configuration Part 2
Your options will now be available

You can select what you require and then hit Write car Configuration JOB DONE.

If you wish to go back to Dash board IPC
Stop program unplug every thing , Flick switch or adjust wires if not switch back to original
And repeat.
Here are the 2 screens

This is Fantastic mate,
i even spotted ESP ON/Off on the list, does this also mean that the ESP switch for the dash can be activated?

i have to purchase one of these, and even better it works with windows 7
thanks pree. B)
Some charge up to £75 for this kind of info on here :rolleyes:

Lmao Lenny , ;)

As far as i can see so far i'm not sure about My ESP switch.
I have turned everything i want on in the cluster , i now have the scary part to do which is hack my ELM to bits and rewire it, i have now ordered the type of dual switch needed and i think i have figured out the diagram for wiring.
I have downloaded the Terminal program to program the ELM after i have modified it , (set of commands have to be sent to the ELM)
It's the GEM module that i really want to get too for the Auto door locking and Auto heated screen for starters. :)

Funny because its true mate,

just to confirm mate
is the ELM the thing that connects the computer to the car?
Preee
Yes Lenny the ELM (OBD 2)is the code reader , which you can use to read all sorts of info on your car in standard setup , lots of demo or free programs out there and you can also read and remove fault codes etc.

There are dozens and dozens of Forum pages regarding this Mod from the guy that made the software , i have read lots of them , and never seen anything but praise for the software.

I like to do! , i'm not a watcher :) i have all ready switched on several things on the dash board that Ford would charge up one hr's labor for each one. In 5 seconds of connecting i can reverse all of the settings by loading my AS-BUILT and clicking send.

If i mess up my ECU (for which i have not seen one single post that this has happened) then it will be my fault.

Why on earth half of this stuff is not turned on by default is beyond me. Ford put it there and left it switched off. My titanium has stuff turned off that are turned on , on other models. how crazy is that.

[/quote]Kudos to you mate, bigger balls than me. I agree on the "switched on" front. Even more annoying when you have a Titanium and think it should all be on. Is it possible that some of it gets disabled mistakenly if a dealer does an update?Don't get me wrong, I'll be having a go at this myself soon.
irl-06lx
is the bit your hacking to bits and modifying the cable connector, or the connector that is on the car?

are most of the good mods only available after you change the connection? and will these work on a mk2 with no trip computer? maybe not the trip specific but the like of one button deadlock etc?

[/quote]

1) The ELM 327 Connector , is what i will be converting , i have pulled the sticky label off to reveal 4 screws , inside the plug can be removed from the reader , the cross over required then wires to the 2 pins that are empty for MScan bus , i will try this later.
2) It seems, in standard configuration the cable can edit most things related to the Trip computer and Display cluster and warning symbols. When i change the ELM i will report back if it allows me into the other sections or not.
3) All information i can find is Mk2 and Mk2.5 , i can't find any specific information reguarding if a trip computer is available or not.
Preee
Richie

Regarding the Gear shift light , i have read that , combined with the Ford Eco Mode then it should work so i will try it later.

So now i'm off to modify the ELM , i have so far sent the 6 Commands to the unit via the terminal program PuTTy all responded with OK via the log so its just a case of making the wiring MOD and fingers and toes crossed :unsure:
Richiemac
I enabled both Paul but no shift light ? I'll undo and redo it to see if it 'sticks'............
Preee
Well what can i say ! damn im clever.

Not got my switch yet , but i re-configured the ELM 327 , 6 wires , joined the required wires for Hcan bus.
Sent commands with terminal PuTTY program.
Plugged it in closed my eyes

It worked :)
Most of the settings are already turned on so i selected
Autolock when driving
Auto heated screen

Auto lock works perfect either in reverse or forward at approx 5mph :)
Auto heated screen i will have to wait for a cold morning :)

Dissabled washer warning as it kept coming on , i checked washer bottle and there is no sensor so i have turned that off.

Turned on Ford Eco mode. Gives out a fancy set of icons with small flowers each flower has 5 sections one for gear , speed and anticipation.

I will update the guide later today on how to MOD the ELM and a couple of screen shots.

So on Low Canbus i can goto some settings and onHigh Canbus i can goto the rest of the settings although i'm not sure what some of it is.

I will upload a small video in a bit of the center cluster , before i turned off the washer warning :)

Richie - Even with Eco turned on the gear Change light still does not function, so there must be more to it i think.
Preee
Video of Center cluster since the MODS , this was before i turned off the washer empty warning signal as there is no wiring to it and it kept coming on.
Later part of the video you will see radio information at the top of the screen.
[media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w2-AZwgoazA&feature=youtube_gdata[/media]
Preee
GUIDE IS NOW COMPLETE AS FAR AS I AM CONCERNED IF ANYONE WISHES TO ADD THEIR OWN PARTS THEN PLEASE DO SO.

I'm happy with all of my current selections i have now put in place, and the money is in my pocket not Ford's. :)

I will of course help anyone who needs help.

Please don't ask me to wire your ELM 327 , i would not want to risk Modifying one for some one else's car.
irl-06lx
Preee you're a genius all right!

Sorry for being stupid but still dont get it.

Are you rewiring the connector on the cable you got from eBay? Or are you removing the port from the focus and rewiring that?
Pidu
You have to rewire interface you get from ebay,

As Pidu says its the ELM 327 from Ebay that i have modified , i have finished the guide on post 2 and 3 of the guide explaining how its done and what steps you take , its very easy to do :)

There is new Russian software available - ELM Config, can be downloaded from here:

[url="http://civil.iffc.ru/ELMConfig/ELMConfig.zip"]http://civil.iffc.ru...g/ELMConfig.zip[/url]

If mscomm32.ocx error is shown dll files need to be downloaded:

[url="http://civil.iffc.ru/ELMConfig/DllPack.zip"]http://civil.iffc.ru...fig/DllPack.zip[/url]


It allow to:
- adjust some GEM parameters, e.g. time of light fading, speed required to auto lock doors
- read DTC codes with Russian and English descriptions
- read / save VIN to various modules
- read mileage and change km <-> miles
- send ELM mid speed codes - no terminal needed
- GEM reboot

Looks like software will be able to do much more in the future, worth waiting for further development.

Stoney871
Just a quick question, what extras would this whole procedure enable on a MK2?
I've lost track of the thread a bit.
I'm a smart, practical person but the tech has passed me a bit.
Preee
It would depend on what is actually fitted to your car , and most would be a case of try them see if they work or if it gives you the option to change.

By downloading and running the first program in off line mode and entering you VIN and also downloading your AS_BUILT it will tell you whats available to your car
Stoney871

Clive if you need some help give me a shout.

On a plus note , they have replied to my email, they have no plans to release an English version , but a new release of the program is due soon with even more feature's. :)

Good you got a reply Paul, shame there will be no English version on the horizon though. Such a handy piece of software and proven to work as we know.........demand for this would be high i'd imagine, just a pity about the language. However thankfully we have google translate :)

Yeah cracking piece of software and great that a new version is on the way, tanslation is not too bad really just take's a little time ,


I have now fitted my switch to my ELM so thats all done.

I'm now working on tracing my wiring this weekend for my ESP switch , i have found a wiring reference of where it should plug into the car , so i need to find if it is plugged in as the information i have found indicates that NO software update is needed.

Just the ESP switch , i have the switch and all the wiring is in place , same as ST , The switch is not "live" and i was told by Ford that it was not possible to activate.

Well our dear Russian friends have of course done exactly that and following the posts i now know where to look to see it its plugged in to the module. , but i want to trace the wire's all the way , so i can check that the wires lead to the C111 module. I was originally hoping it could be turned on through ELM-FF2 , but it appears it needs no software activation .

Stoney871
I've just re-read the whole thread and have determined that there is nothing there i really need to alter.
Already have auto rear wipe on reverse and have an indicator light which shows on near redline so no change light really needed and my reversing sensors already beep when going in to reverse. I don't have heated windscreen, cruise, or any other item on the lists that needs twiddling with.
Think i'll leave well alone. :)
sparkymark75
Just tried part 1, and enabled the low washer fluid level indicator and the instant fuel reading. Can't go out in the car just now so not sure if they work but will soon find out.
Preee
Nice one Sparky , mine does not have the sensor wiring to the washer bottle so it kept coming on after about 5 seconds warning me on low water , so i turned it back off , i might look at getting a sensor fitted and make use of it.

Cold here tonight so i'm hoping it will be below 4c tomorrow to see if the heated screen comes on in auto.

Auto door locking is working a treat as is everything else i have turned on.

Ford ECO mode keeps displaying meesages about changing gear early etc tec , but still actual score has not changed even though i reset average fuel consumption like it states you should , it's surposed to be in the ECU for 2010 Focus onwards but i think it does not work but i will see if it changes .

I have just finished the wiring mod's to the ELM327 an tried the first alteration to the IPC, and yes that reversing sound had to go back off straight away!. also enabled the autodoor locking bit, will need to wait until tomorrow to see if this works ok. still a few unknowns at the moment regarding the rest of the function but i did notice through your screen shots of the programme the tabs across the top shows Diagnostics / Configuration and Additional. well I have not looked yet but do you think their may be an option to initiate a DPF regen I understand that Ford have to hook-up to the system to do this normally?. the possibilities of this could be endless. and may save pounds instead of going to the dealer.

have the cable, but im a mac head so need to rob a windows laptop of someone and try this! can't wait to set deadlock to first press of button, and auto lock while driving etc.
irl-06lx
got windows 7 laptop
downloaded first russian software and tried com1 with vin number and no joy

computer had a heart attack about something else and I couldn't view this guide properly, but i got the bit about modifying the ELM with the command window so i tried that and it did sort of work. During this process i realised that it was in com7.

i then tried the russian software again and got into it but get a funny error when i try to read the data.
the second russian software gives the error mentioned but i don't know where to put the dll files.

did i screw it up by modifying the elm when i didnt need to?

Need to fill my water bottle up as I got the low washer fluid warning as soon as I got in the car this morning, I thought that may have been correct as I have haven't filled it up for a couple of weeks but after reading your post, I'll need to fill it up and see if the warning disappears.

Haven't modded the cable yet to allow me to do the other stuff such as auto door locking. Will get around to that eventually.

I have not seen anything about DPF , just be carefull that you fully translate before you decide to WRITE THE CONFIGURATION , and keep a safe copy of your AS_BUILT for reference if you need to change anything or all back.

computer had a heart attack about something else and I couldn't view this guide properly, but i got the bit about modifying the ELM with the command window so i tried that and it did sort of work. During this process i realised that it was in com7.

i then tried the russian software again and got into it but get a funny error when i try to read the data.
the second russian software gives the error mentioned but i don't know where to put the dll files.

did i screw it up by modifying the elm when i didnt need to?

I have not tried ELMconfig program yet.
Your com port will be listed in the control panel for the ELM device if you click properties , you then use that com port or write it in as COM1 etc.
you will get a NO data or NO CAMbus error if it is on the wrong switch setting .
PuTTY the command line program , i set the log file to check all commands were issued , repeating the commands is fine as i probably did some of the commands twice to make sure they were excepted.

Need to fill my water bottle up as I got the low washer fluid warning as soon as I got in the car this morning, I thought that may have been correct as I have haven't filled it up for a couple of weeks but after reading your post, I'll need to fill it up and see if the warning disappears.

Haven't modded the cable yet to allow me to do the other stuff such as auto door locking. Will get around to that eventually.

Thats what happened to mine , reason for mine was that the wiring was not there for the washer low level , only 2 wires going to the pump on mine.

I've ordered one last night even though i'm not very confident of using it lol. Particularly dreading the soldering/ desoldering!!
there are a few things there i definately want to activate, such as auto door locking, and auto heated screen for starters.

Preee, does the heated screen option switch both front and rear on, and at what outside temp?

EDIT: Also, what exactly does ECO Mode do?

When i started my car this morning it was 4c and orange snowflake , this activated front and rear screens at the same time , i just switched them off as it was not frosty. :)

Eco Mode , just monitors your driving and advise's you how your driving and tips on driving more Economical. Gimmic probably but , at first i thought it did not work , but now it's growing and adapting to my driving since i reset the average fuel consumption.
On the Russian site it says it may work on Pre-2010 , but lists it as working on 2010/2011 ECU's

On the IPC tab I think IVD = Interactive Vehicle Dynamics

[url="http://media.ford.com/article_display.cfm?article_id=2609"]http://media.ford.com/article_display.cfm?article_id=2609[/url]

[b] Interactive Vehicle Dynamics (IVD)[/b]

[b]What it is:[/b] Interactive Vehicle Dynamics integrates and manages the antilock brake system, all-speed traction control and yaw stability assist. In addition to providing the normal antilock braking and traction control functions, IVD has a yaw stability function that proportions brake pressure (above or below the driver's applied pressure) to each wheel individually, thereby delivering enhanced steering control at the dynamic limits for any traction surface while braking, accelerating or coasting. The IVD system could be activated when a vehicle is taking a turn too quickly or when it encounters a slippery road surface.[b]How it works:[/b] The system compares the driver's intended path (which is derived from the steering wheel angle) to the actual vehicle path, which is inferred from a yaw rate sensor, a lateral accelerometer and wheel-speed sensors. If the actual path is different from that intended path (e.g., when the vehicle is understeering or oversteering), the IVD controller applies braking at selected wheel(s) and reduces engine torque if required to make the best use of available traction to keep the vehicle on the intended path and minimize loss of control.[b]Customer benefit:[/b] Increased driver control, handling, performance and safety.[b]Ford status:[/b] Available on the 2000 Lincoln LS, with the marketing name AdvanceTrac.

Nice find, but I think it could work only if you have sensor on steering wheel column (the one used for AFL, cornering lights or however it is called), unfo most of the cars don't have it.

[u]Ajt [/u]have you switched that on? is it the steering setting mode that is in Diesel's to adjust the sport settings?


On another note i have been using AABBY scan software .Taken screen shots of the various screens of ELM-FF2 and ELMconfig , then loading the images into AABBY , placing the program in Russian :) this then translates the image into text , save them as word documents and then Google translate. Works a treat . Before i was using Russian online keyboard and manually typing each letter before using google translate.

Only thing i have not done yet is over lay the text on the images , not had time.
