  1. The main connector for the bluetooth module isn't behind the glovebox but more to the side but you need to remove the glovebox to access it. You wont find it easily because its well hidden inside the gray foam and lots of electrical tape. The audio patch loom is also in the same place and the microphone patch loom is just below. This video shows it perfectly https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N8-orODfE4s
  2. Hi Allen, not very active on here these days but from the first pic I can see the plug that's needed for the microphone. It's the one that has one black and one red and white wire. I's normally held into the light surround with a bit of glue. I did a guide a while back that might help you complete the install http://www.fordownersclub.com/forums/tutorials/article/212-retrofit-bluetooth-with-voice-control-and-usb-for-focus-mk25/
  3. Full wiring schematics, ST pod cluster is on page 85. http://www.mediafire.com/download/0ww0q1o720cm9uc/entire_schematics_ph8m5t-70000-ad.pdf
  4. Obd Security 'databloc Ford Protection'

    Not sure Mark, their device could be self powered? My OBD port is completely reconfigured now and stickers added to the windows to advertise the fact.
  5. Obd Security 'databloc Ford Protection'

    The alarm doesn't sound because they come round earlier, drill a small hole next to one of the wiper arms which is just above the alarm siren then fill it with expanding foam. They then come in the small hours, pop the window reach in and plug in a device that emulates the key being present into the OBD port. There's a guy on facebook that sells a patch cable and instructions for rewiring the OBD port, once done the port only works if the patch cable is used. Not sure if he does them for all models but defiantly Focus ST & RS
  6.

  7. Retro-Fitting Bluetooth To A 58Plate Titanium

    You need to replace the exsisting audio patch cable for one that routes the sound through the newly fitted Bluetooth module, Ford Finis 1592580 (8M5T-119A442-AB) about £9.31 from your dealer. The voice control can be enabled using elmconfig, more info here http://www.fordownersclub.com/forums/tutorials/article/212-retrofit-bluetooth-with-voice-control-and-usb-for-focus-mk25/ And here http://www.fordownersclub.com/forums/topic/31287-guide-for-focus-mk2mk25-c-maxkuga-elm-327-cable-and-ff2-program/
  8. Samsung S4 And 60 Plate Fiesta Problem

    On you S4, go into your contacts, press the bottom left touch button to bring up the menu then select contacts to display. I have all contacts selected, that should display contacts stored on both sim and the device.
  9. Focus Mk2.5 Armrest Ipod Holder

    You need to remove the back of the armrest then cut some holes for the securing tabs usb and AUX ports on the ipod holder to go through, there's a faint line molded into the plastic
  10. Google Maps/navigation

    I use Rocket Player to do this in my RS with the sony dab head unit https://play.google....therMusicPlayer It only works whilst streaming music from your phone though. If you try it you may need to go into settings, audio, audio focus, temp focus action and make sure DUCK or Pause is enabled. If one doesn't work try the other. Another app that works is shuttle music player https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=another.music.player
  11. Mk2.5 Retrofit Bluetooth / Usb /voice

    Hi Wilco, would you mind giving me the settings used in ELMconfig please.
  12. It may be that you car has had bluetooth/ voice control all along but was not working, depending on the work the garage carried out they may have disconected the battery and as a result reset the BVC module. Have you tried any voice commands or paired your phone?
  13. Mk2.5 Retrofit Bluetooth / Usb /voice

    Thanks for the info Wilco :)
  14. Mk2.5 Retrofit Bluetooth / Usb /voice

    Very interesting that you have managed to use a mk3 module in the mk2.5 would you mind me asking what the model number of the module is and how you configured it.
  15. Update your headunits software, this should sort it out then you'll only need to connect the USB cable http://www.ford-mobile-connectivity.co.uk/downloadsUpdates Place the files on the root of the USB stick and follow the instructions.
  16. Focus Mk2 St Replica Build

    They came off my 2006 focus ST, I'm not sure if their plug and play and or MOT friendly
  17. Focus Mk2 St Replica Build

    I've got a set of xenon headlights if your interested.
  18. Dunno mate tbh I was a member there for a short time but left because the mk2 section was almost dead, the way the club is being run had a lot to do with quite a few members doing the same.

  22. What To Do Next...!?

    Katie, I used Halfords brake calliper paint. http://www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/product_storeId_10001_catalogId_10151_categoryId_165495_productId_175090_langId_-1?cm_mmc=Google+PLA-_-Paints+&+Body+Repairs-_-Specialist+&+Decorative+Paints-_-363374&istCompanyId=b8708c57-7a02-4cf6-b2c0-dc36b54a327e&istItemId=lwqpwm&istBid=tztr&_$$ja=cgid:8475776884|tsid:35522|cid:166296844|lid:47422310288|nw:g|crid:33910835764|rnd:5008237309277703385|dvc:c|adp:1o2|bku:1&gclid=CJK-s_ulob0CFSn4wgod0R0AMA Try to remove any brake dust etc I used a wire brush, as mentioned above give them a clean with brake cleaner then using a small paintbrush give the callipers three light coats. http://www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/product_storeId_10001_catalogId_10151_productId_252419_langId_-1_categoryId_255218 The Halfords paint does not require anything else and there's more than enough in one tin. You may find a few artists brushes quite useful for the difficult bits. The Fiestas starting to look B)
  23. What To Do Next...!?

    Rule of thumb is not to have more than 3 colours, white, black and the tail lights being red I would go red callipers, ;)
  24. Have a look for both the module and mic connectors if you have these I think you would be good to go. Read through the Kuga thread but I think you will need the the patch cable if not both
  25. This guide is for the Sony 6 disc dab but will give you a good idea of what's involved, I can remember reading that the NX unit has a mic built into it for voice commands this might explain the stalk with the voice button. http://www.fordownersclub.com/forums/tutorials/article/212-retrofit-bluetooth-with-voice-control-and-usb-for-focus-mk25/ Also have a read through this, it's for the Kuga but has reference to the NX unit http://www.kugaownersclub.co.uk/forum/retrofit-bt-vc-with-usb_topic1669_page1.html
