      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. So, i used to drive 2.0 tdci mk3 before i bought this focus, and now im planing to change to mk4 mondeo. The car that i have in mind is 2010, 2.0 TDCI (140) automatic, driven 230k km... The MK3 Did 470k km succesfully whitout a doubt before i sold it, could i assume same from the mk4? The mk3 engine was fords own, the mk4 is aparantly borrowed from PSA? Any ideas if the CAM is chain driven, or belt driven (and how often it should be changed)... And owerall, is it worth to buy? I loved the MK3, but i have the doubts from the mk4 (especialy when the first psa engined car i bought was this focus, and 3 months after i was changing an engine to it)
  2. Ford buttons or self made? I noticed that the GEM beebs on the rear window heater trick, even if the buttons were set up all wrong.

  7. Sorry for late response, i was on work trip to germany, and the hotel had no wifi (what is this, 1960's ?!) For the resistors, the 511 is ok, and 300 you can make from the allready existing 120 and 180 resistors :) I can take piture inside my remote tomorrow, but the awesome paint picture that i did shows same, much more clearly since its kinda messy looking inside the remote when you have the resistors going from button leg to button leg, and the jumpwires going on to another legs. It is possible to use the existing connections on the board, but i didnt bother to plan it that long. I just used stanley to cut the conections 2mm away from the button legs, and then used the resistors and jumpwires to do the connection. Some pictures: Here you can see the button legs, marked whit sharpie Here is picture of the original connections cutted out: Now, here is picture of the connections. DO NOT COPY THIS ONE!!! THIS IS WRONG! This pic is from the first version that i made, and it does not have that "looping". This picture is just to show you how i packed the resistors inside the remote, and what i mean whit the jumpwires (brown ones)
  8. Here's super cool pic that i made whit paint! :D You can use the circuit inside the remote, and the buttons on the circuit board (thats what the picture tries to represent). Just cut the existing button connections, and just solder wires to the button legs, like shown on the picture. The 300ohm resistor is not a "standard" resistor, but you can make 300ohm by soldering 120 & 180 right after each other.

  10. What kind of radio stalk do you have? (or morelike what kind of stereo). I had the CD6000 whit the Vol Up, Mode, Vol Down buttons on the front, and Seek + / - Rocker on the behind. I made the Vol+ to Set +, Mode to RES, Vol- to SET- and the seek up/down to On/Off.
  11. Yeap, if we assume that the current comes from the White wire to the first resistor input, the first resistors output goes to second input, second output goes to thrid input and so on. and on the end of the 5th come the brown wire. Now you connect the off button before the first resistor to the white wire, and to the brown wire set+ button goes after the first resistor, and to brown wire set- button goes after the secod button, and brown wire res goes after third and on goes after fourth, So, when no button is pressed, the current goes trough all the resistors (i think this is so that the gem knows that the remote is connected) When you push OFF, it skips all the resistors, and just shorts the 2 wire. When you push the SET+ button, it connects the 2 wires right after the 1st resistor etc. If you are planning to use the radio remote, i can give you somesort of how-to, what so solder where. if you plann use your own buttons, you need those momentary buttons. The CC remote only gives "impulses" to the ECU what to do :)
  12. The picture thats on the pdf is pretty much the best i can come up whit, (i suck at drawing) but i try to walk you trough it. So, here you see that the resistors are all lined up, so that when no button is pressed, the current needs to go trough all of the resistors. When you push the OFF button, the current skips all of the resistors push the SET+ button, the current goes trough only the 120ohm resistor push the SET- the current goes trough the 120ohm and the 180ohm resistors push the RES button, and the current goes trough 120, 180 and the 300ohm resistors And finaly, when you hit the ON button, the curren goes trough 120,180,300 and 510ohm resistors.

  14. Fixed it!! And now it works. I had read the schematocs wrong. The resistors are connected in line, not 1 resistor per button like i first thought. Many thanks :)
