  1. You can program keys to central locking but immobiliser part is way more involved. You can do it yourself using software called Forscan but better using a proper Auto Locksmith. Cheaper than Ford dealership plus they come to you. The Ford quote is for supplying the key but add about £100 for cutting and coding, an hours labour and obligatory diagnostic they always insist is essential. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  2. Exactly that. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  3. There are 2 live feeds to the dome light. One is permanent live that works with the switch and the other one is the circuit that operates with the opening of the doors. You need to swap the live feed to your footwell lights to the other terminal on the twin wired connector. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  4. To create a copy of a nav card you need a decent quality 32gb micro SD card with standard SD adaptor, a free program called SD Booster and an Android phone or pad with a micro SD port. This enables you to read the SD cards unique serial number which is needed in order to create a file on the card once the nav mapping software has been applied to it. I can't recall off the top of my head what software it is that you need to create the modified serial number file but it is this that your nav system reads in order to verify the SD card and allow the system to run. The software gives 3 different files, one of which will work (but no way of knowing which) so it's a case of trial and error (swapping the files until one of the three files is accepted) which is why there are usually problems in buying hooky cards off ebay. I'm currently in Cyprus but if you P/M me a reminder on Monday night I'll dig up all the software and info you need and wang it onto a dropbox link for you. The file will be big as the nav data alone is about 30gb so will take a while to transfer. It will work just fine as I used the process to make a back up card for myself in case my original one goes wonky. Sandisk Ultra cards seem best suited and are only about £12 off Amazon.

  5. It will fit but you'll be not too impressed with the knob itself. I've had a try of ones like that in my previous car and the quality of the silver insert on top is shockingly poor. You'll be ok if the original one transfers across and fits though. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  6. Have the key fob tested at somewhere like Timpsons. The fob may have gone duff or the battery terminals may be dirty. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk

  8. Speed limiter is very handy around average speed zones (and the M25). Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  9. Direct battery reading should be 14v plus so wouldn't hurt to give it a charge or a boost and see how you go. Btw, great bit of persistence in locating your wiring fault. Many would have wrapped their hand in by now. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  10. Could be something simple like the battery needs a charge. Check the voltage at the lighter socket, you should have at least 12.4v on ignition. Diesels need a fair bit of power to crank over effectively. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  11. I'll lay bets it's a fake nav card. As stated before- the sync version has no effect on the navigation system, they are seperate software. You need an original nav card (or at least a copy that isn't junk). Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  12. It may be a hooky card. The nav card has a file on it that is created from the cards inbuilt serial number, if the file is incorrect then the system will reject it. F3 is the current sync version and nothing to do with nav software. Whete did you get the card from? Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk

  14. Aftermarket immobiliser or bluetooth phone kit fitted? I had a parrot system in my previous car that would beep if the wires to the screen became detached by accident. Some owners get kits fitted and then pull visible bits off if they don't work properly. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  15. Timpsons purely want to sell you one of their cheap fobs which they clone rather than programming properly. Go to a proper car locksmith, it will be money better spent. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
