Well finished all my chores from the wife's must be done while your on holiday !!!!!!.

So tomorrow i'm going to attempt the ESP button mod final test.

What i know so far is that the wiring is in place in my car but terminate's N/S Socket C111 , this wire continues on the ST into the ABS fuse under the bonnet fuse box. What i don't know is if the other 2 wires actually go into the GEM module so only one way to find out and that is to connect the missing link. So tomorrow i'm going to connect the wire. :)
So the switch lights up at the moment but does not turn the ESP off.
I have downloaded the guide made by my fellow Russian experts and will use it to guide me in lol
Fingers crossed. :D

Good luck!!

Only thing i will check first , is if the 2 required wires on mine actually go into the GEM , its behind the Battery pins 38 & 8 .
The wiring for the ESP switch is fitted to the Titaniums , it's just that the power is not Fed from the ABS , There are 5 wires in total
earth
light
2x GEM
1x Fused ABS
I know the light part works on the switch , if the 2 other wires don't go into the GEM then it will be game off until i can locate some Pins , if they are connected which could be a "NO" then all ihave to do is link the ABS fused to C19 fuse under the bonnet.

Hope this works out mate,
id love to be able to switch off the ESP via a button on the dash too.
Preee
Lenny with the Russian guide i have, i translated it :) , even if you don't have the wiring loom its still only 5 wires 2 of which are the lighting for the switch , the 2 wires to the GEM are the problem as may need to connectors. i will email you the guide m8 i translated , its not perfect still a few gobbledegoop words in there.

Defiantly something I would be interested in. It's anoying that my moms vw touran has an ESP button but mine doesnt :/

Hope this goes well for you mate, just out of curiosity how much did the ESP button cost??

The button cost £16.99 from ford ,i have had it a while now , i even tried to get for to activate it , but at that time i did not know the wiring was not complete , just thought it needed activating.

Lenny if it only has three wires , then that is the passenger Airbag light. the wiring for the ESP has 5 wires.
Preee
:P Well it's done ESP Switch activated on my Focus :D

Did not go as planned but i have done it.
None of the required 3 wires were in place , my first job was to check the loom at the back of the GEM :( and pin 38 and 8 were not connected. Dilemma was do i stop or continue.
Well i continued carefully drilling out the back of the wire harness to pins 38 and 8.
I used an old USB plug and took out 2 pins and soldered my wires to them.
I worked backwards to the Russian guide.

I will do a guide along with the Russian guide i translated to English.I will add to the Russian guide.

I have also done a video of it working to prove it works. :D .so off to tidy up , food and then i will write the guide.
At long last we Focus owners have an ESP button yaayyyyyyyy

GUIDE COMPLETED:
