  1. 2015 Ford Focus DRL

    Download Forscan, register on their forum and then to allow you to access HScan programming you need to request an extended licence. It's all free and lasts for 2 months (you can reapply after that if needed again) To get the extended licence you need to install the software on the laptop you intend to use and copy the device serial generated in the licence section of the software and include it on the licence application. Copy/paste the emailed serial into the licence page and all good. If you don't see what you need to alter on Forscan you can also try FoCCus. If you want to see what parameters you need to look for then enter your VIN here- ford.xtlt.ru/ab which will pull up an asbuilt data page identical to that used by FoCCus so you can play around without affecting anything on the car. you can then save the configuration as an XML file which can be opened directly by FoCCus and written to the car. It's also a handy reference to the asbuilt config if you think you have made a mistake somewhere. Only thing to be aware of is that sometimes rewriting your asbuilt can cause random DTC to pop up on the car, just read and reset them from within Forscan and you're all good.
  2. What is this switch?!?!

    Front parking sensors fitted?
  3. Fiesta sat nav problem

    May need a master reset, should have a menu entry for that. Sent from my SM-G930F
  4. Ford Focus 1.8 TDCi

    Why car manufacturers don't do silicone hoses as standard is beyond me. They last longer, don't split, look far better and don't collapse under vacuum. Price difference is marginal too. Sent from my SM-G930F
  5. Ford Focus 1.8 TDCi

    Ford don't give an interval to change fuel filters but I advise doing so every year (including housing seal) to avoid fuel pressure errors popping up. Also keep an eye on the intercooler hoses as they are prone to splitting, tbh it is a good idea to swap them out for silicone ones to forestall any future dramas. Sent from my SM-G930F
  6. P/M me your VIN number and I'll get the part number for you off Microcat. Sent from my SM-G930F

    As long as the asbuilt profile is saved before altering anything then should be no problems. Sent from my SM-G930F
  8. Double din cage to small

    The first one is a true double din sized fascia rather than an adaptor to make your existing one fit so will be tidier. There are grey and silver ones available on ebay so you can match your trim colour.
  9. Dashboard Dials Flickering On Engine Start

    Maybe a loose cable block. They are easy to kick and do become displaced. Ensure all blocks are firmly seated in their sockets. Sent from my SM-G930F
  10. 2015 Ford Focus DRL

    I've used forscan on my car with no problems. They're on to version 2.3.1 beta right now which was put up in April.
  11. Double din cage to small

    You haven't fitted a fascia adaptor, the Ford double din dimensions are larger than standard. I recommend an adaptor or an aftermarket true double din fascia. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/DFP-07-17-FORD-Focus-2006-On-Double-Din-Car-Stereo-Facia-Fascia-Panel-Plate-/400680579469?hash=item5d4a6c718d:g:W~cAAOSwPcVVjQ67 http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ford-Focus-Fiesta-Double-Din-Fascia-Panel-Adapter-Plate-Cage-Fitting-Kit-/370925619087?fits=Car+Make%3AFord|Model%3AFocus&hash=item565ce3c78f:g:kuEAAOSwGotWoBkP

    Forscan and a modified ELM cable. http://forscan.org/home.html http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/222117730352?_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

    Still a pos though 😆 Sent from my SM-G930F

    Wash your mouth out. I've driven an Insignia and while it looks decent, it is a gutless pos. Sent from my SM-G930F
