  1. hi simcor The vid on your signature for programming remote function of keyfobs has a different way from the description of the ebay's key with 4D60 chip. The seller says that you can program the key to start the engine without diagnostics if you have 2 working keys. I dont know if he is right or wrong but this is not my main problem now because I have a modified elm327. I install cruise control buttons and program them with elmconfing. Does anyone know the procedure to program keys with elmconfing ? My problem is what key to order with 4D60 or 4D63 chip.
  2. Hello I have a 2009 focus and i have one flip remote key and one key with no remote. I want to buy a second flip key. Which key i have to buy for my car with 4D60 chip or with 4D63 chip At the description of the 4D60 chip says that i can program the key myself. Can i program the key myself and for the 4D63 chip? Is the same way to program it or i have to go to a locksmith? thank you
  3. you are right I had put cruise control buttons to my steering wheel. So i had to remove these buttons and to remove them i had to take of the airbag. if your wheel is the 3-spoke you do not have to remove anything except the silver trims
  4. Hello Finally I decided to keep the cover. Yesterday I put it to the steering wheel. The whole process took me 7 hours. I had to remove the silver trims , the airbag and the cruise control buttons before I stitch the cover. Then to put them all back. The silver trims have 3 tabs. I pull them. One of the 3 tabs of every silver trim teared a little the wheel. I did not understand how to remove them without tear the wheel. Luckily it is not a problem because the trims jam again to the wheel. The reason that It took me so much time is that I did not like the stitching at the photos of the seller and I choose a stitching with 2 threads making a X. I am quite pleased with the result I did not make it to stretch the cover at the spokes. All the spokes have a little gap at the corner.I donot know if is my fault at stitching or the cover is too big at this point. i hope not to be bigger with the time. Especially the upper right spoke have a big gap as you see at the second picture the cover is raised. I start stitching from that spoke and i did not stretch it enough. Someday i will remove the silver trim and try to stretch it, i hope to manage it. The wheel it becomes thicker and that is a nice feeling but it becomes more slippery. djsubtronic is quite difficult to put the cover so choose a day you have not anything to do. I thing that your cover is like mine. Neither yours is for a wheel with silver trims. I believe that if the cover is for the wheel with that trims there will not be a gap at the corners and you will put it more easily. When i buy something i want to get exactly what i order and if the seller say to me that is real leather i except to get real leather and no fraux leather. the only advice i have is to stretch the cover as you can and especially at the corners of the spokes.
  5. I hope your cover will be ok good luck
  6. Hello again I received the steering wheel cover and i am very disappointed. first of all it is not real leather. It is a cheap pu leather. and the seller send me a cover that is for a 4 spoke wheel without the silver trims(like the left picture). My wheel is with that silver trims and the appropriate cover had to be like the picture at the right. Before i buy it i had a conversation with the seller. He confirm that is real leather. At the pictures had 3 covers, one for the 3 spoke wheel, one for the 4 spoke wheel without the silver trims and one for the 4spoke wheel with the trims. I emphasized that my wheel is with the silver trims and furthermore he ask me to sent a picture of my steering wheel to choose the appropriate cover for me. Now he persist that is real leather and this cover is for my steering wheel I am from greece and we have capital controls so i was not able to pay him with the aliexpress pay methods so i pay him with paypal. I open a dispute at paypal and i ask for a refund because the seller is dishonest and he deceived me. The paypal close the dispute and say that i have to pay the shipping costs to return the cover and then refund me. The cover cost 16.60$ and the returning shipping cost is 8-9$. this was my second purchase from aliexpress. My first was before 2 years. I buy the cruise control switch for my car and everything was ok. So do not buy like me from sellers that sell things cheap and read the reviews. I buy the cheapest cover that i found from this seller please avoid him. When i buy it, it costs 15.90$ and now it cost 23.11$. I pay and the paypals fees so the total costs was 16.60$ He has no good feedback and no reviews for the cover. I am very sorry that i can not write a review and to leave negative feedback because i do not pay him with aliexpess methods. The are sellers which sells steering wheel covers and at the reviews the buyers saying that the cover is real leather. if you want a cover find this sellers. I dont decide yet if i will place the cover to my wheel or i return it. i believe that the summer sun burn the cover soon. Here is a link from china's youtube how to place the cover. The only possitive thing from this purchase is that the shipping was very fast.I get it 15 days after i pay. He sent me with china post register mail.
  7. ok i will tell you the news just i received it
  8. thank you for your answers I have order the cover and when it comes i try to pull them up with more strength. and if they break i will buy some from ebay like the link Stoney give
  9. Hello I have a mk2.5 focus with the 4spoke wheel with the silver trims. My wheel is the plastic one and i want to get a leather cover like this. To place the cover i have to take out this plastic silver trims from the wheel. i try to loose them but they are glued very well and if i force them little more they will break. Is there a way these trims to come off from my steering wheel without breaking them? This trims have clips or they are just glued on the wheel? thanks
  10. Hello i have a 2010 MK2.5 focus with sunroof. Before 2-3 months the sunroof started to make an annoying sound. it is a creaking sound and it becomes louder and more annoying every day. Most of the time when i close the inside cover of the sunroof(this hand sliding cover for making shadow) the sound stops. Have anyone the same problem? I think some bolts of the sunroof's mechanism are loosen. is there an easy way to reach the mechanism?
  11. thank you Wilco for the quick replay. you are right i wasnot setup adapter for ms-can bus. i had select auto select and i thought that i have to do nothing more. the speed test was not working except if i select 9600 baudrate. the max speed that my chip support is 256.000 and that baudrate i select for the constant speed. Now the speed test is working only if i select the 256.000 baudrate and i can read and write to HS-CAN and also to MS-CAN can i read and write the pcm module with that speed or i have to buy another elm327 which support 500.000 thank again wilco
  12. hello i want to fit cruise control to my focus I order an elm327 cable from ebay because the seller said to me that it has an ftdi chip. it came yesterday but it has a pl2303 chip. I modified it today and i try it with elmconfing and with fds programs. The elm_ff2_en has characters that i can not read so i did not try it . the elmconfing and the fds can read and write HS-CAN modules they can not read the MS-CAN modules. with the elmconfing program when i place the switch of the modified elm327 to hs-can and trying to read from GEM it show a CAN ERROR message. i think this is right. but when i place the switch to ms-can and trying to read from gem it show a NO DATA message why is this happens? i check the wires to the switch and they seems ok is there a posibility the not ftdi chip makes the problem and i can not read gem module? have anyone with a pl2303 chip read and write the pcm module or i have to buy another elm cable
