  1. Mk3 reverse camera

    Yeah did think of that mate but trying to go down the oem route.
  2. Mk3 reverse camera

    Hi all I'm after some advice. I have a 2014 pre facelift st3 to which have just retrofitted sat nav which works well but now I'm looking at retrofitting the oem reverse camera. ive read loads of how to's but I'm unclear on one thing. How do I connect the oem loom from the boot to the back of the screen? The loom which I got new does not look like it reaches that far. Is there a loom hidden somewhere to bridge this gap? I have all the oem bits ready but just unsure about this part of the loom.
  3. Mk3 reverse camera

    I have a pre facelift 2014 st3 and was told by someone who works for ford that this is the loom I need and as you said I need to see if the rest of the loom is in my car ( a pink plug taped up somewhere) apparently? I'm going to have a look for this over the weekend so fingers crossed I have the plug hidden away. If it's a case of making my own loom I think I'll leave it as I would not have a clue.
  4. Mk3 reverse camera

    Any other ideas?
  5. Mk3 reverse camera

    I have ordered the tailgate Loom 1788280 to go with the oem camera I brought. When I fitted the sat nav screen I didn't notice any extra plugs or anything but to be honest was wasn't really looking for any extra plugs.

  8. Sub woofer

    Hi hoping someone has done this or knows how this fits as there is no RCA inputs. Is it a case of cutting in existing speaker wires?
  9. Sub woofer

    Sounds easy enough to do and like you say there should be instructions. Thanks for your help mate.
  10. Sub woofer

  12. Sync 1

    Hi all is there anyway to get track names and artist when playing a cd and Bluetooth cause I don't? Is it a case of an update? I get them when using my iPhone plugged into the USB.
  13. Sync 1

    My APIM is from a 2014 PFL. What year would I need to source one from? I don't even get it when playing cd's. Would a new APIM be plug n play?
  14. Sat nav connections

    Just wondering what the different coloured plugs are for on a focus mk3 pre face lift? There's blue, black, pink and green. I'm doing the retrofit and was trying to figure it out. cheers

  21. Sat nav connections

    So the Fakra gps plugs into the blue plug the Fakra cable goes from the pink plug on the fcdim to the black plug on the acm? Is this right?
  22. Sat nav connections

    I get that the green is for the camera and the blue is for the gps and black is for fm and pink for dab not I'm not sure where this extra fakra cable goes?
  23. Sat nav connections

    I was told when retrofitting sat nav I had to buy a fakra gps and a fakra cable but I'm not sure where this cable plugs into?
  24. Sat nav connections

    Lovely cheers mate! When doing this retrofit where does the fakra z cable go? Is it the two black plugs?
  25. Another sat nav question

    Hi all, I really want to retrofit sat nav to my pre facelift 2014 st3. Now I know I have to find a nav screen with the same number as my current screen (DM5T) but can't find one for the life of me. So my question is can I just buy a complete system i.e. Screen, fascia and CD player part from a car that is being broken. The number for these parts start with BM5T. Would it be a case of plug n play or will it need coding to my car? Is this doable? Cheers!
