  1. I have ordered a coolant level switch and will fit this in the side of the coolant tank and has a seal and nut to make a good seal on the tank and hole will be 16.5mm . I was just going to wire this up to a LED and get this to light if the level switch detects coolant level drop but was then thinking does this dash have a UNUSED coolant level light ? Does any one know How the High temp warning light is triggered ? I expect the ECU lights this by monitoring the coolant temp sensor resistance , NTC ? If so thinking of a circuit to alter this resistance to enable the dash high temp light to light of flash when low coolant level detected from my new switch . Does any one know the resistance required by the ecu in order to light the red high temp light . I like the idea of a flashing temp light and wondered what the normal high temp light does when the engine is cooked . Does this red light stay on or flash ? please help as it will be a great add on for all ecoboost engine cars
  2. What was the mileage of your car when this pump failed ?
  3. Hi , I have just got a interior light with intrusion detector from a 2012 ranger , swapped over the location blue LEDs with the orange ones from the old light. I then added tree wires for the power , ground and data for the extra ultrasonic sensor and then reprogrammed the body computer to enable its options and control via the front display monitor. Just tested the alarm with window down and all works perfect . Last upgrade to do is add front parking sensors , parking switch and bumper wiring for sensors and reprogram the body computer again. other mods completed was adding Tyre Deflation monitoring (now all working) and Navigation System all working with Miles/Km selection and Sync upgraded to 1.1 (all working) Also added factory fit Reverse Camera with lines controlled by steering wheel position (all working) Pics to follow later

  5. Hi , I am retrofitting a front interior light which has the built in intrusion sensors for the alarm system for glass break etc. My light fitted with no sensors had two orange leds one each side of the buttons for location lights and wondered if the sensor version of this lamp had them ? My replacement lamp has two holes one each side with a deeper slot and wondered if this is where the leds were fitted on this version of the light. I think I should be able to swap the orange leds over to the new lamp if not fitted but would like to know if that was how they were designed for the sensor version. Can any one confirm this or have a picture of the sensor version of the light with the orange leds lit up. Thanks The first link is like my current light and the second link is for my replacement lamp .
  6. I have had a search and found that the BCM Plugs are BLUE & WHITE and as far as I can see all front main loom wires are fitted in my car so that just requires bumper loom , sensors and switch if required and a reconfig with forscan so will be done soon .
  7. I am on the last two stages of my project which is to install and wire up the front factory fit parking sensors and later to add intrusion detector for the alarm system. I have all the circuits and the front wiring for the parking sensors goes from Plug C139 (I think approx. location if fitted would be near the OSF fog light ?) This C139 6 wire plug goes back to the body computer Plug C2280D pins 6 , 11 , 20 , 21 , 22 , 23. Does any one know what plug this is on the body computer as it has what looks like seven plugs , GREEN , BLUE , WHITE , GREY and three larger plugs . I hope the front wires are in the engine bay loom but if not will add then if required. The plug C139 near bumper would then go into the front parking sensor loom which the sensors plug into. My car had rear parking sensors so any chance of the front cables being in the loom ? Any one had the bumper off and can confirm location of C139 where the sensor loom joins the main loom ? Does any one know what plug on the body computer is C2280D ? Where does the PARKING SWITCH wire to and what does this do ? does it just turn the front sensors off ? I expect the switch must also wire to the BCM ? Any info with thanks in advance . Should I be able to see C137 with front OS Wheel arch removed ?
  8. Hi , I have a 2015 sync module in a 2013 car and can confirm it works great. I have sync 5.8 and am going to update it to 5.9 and would like to update it by a download from the ford website. I can put in a 2015 vin number and the sync module update file is listed. I then clicked on add file to downloads and then get some icons the fist being prepare usb drive and click continue . With a formatted fat 32 drive I can not get it to go past this stage where it should let you select your usb drive letter etc. Has any other members found how to get past this or is it a website problem. Also drives me nuts that a test drive ford focus add keeps popping up and you need to click the large X below the top right corner of the page . any help please
  9. well said
  10. My car was registered 30/03/13 with blue display so can be sure but would think this would work as mine has . My old module had a build date of 20130128 = 28/01/2013 and old part number was AM5T-14D212-CB So if yours is the same part number I would say your in with a very good chance.
  11. yes that is what the app in the sync does
  12. picture of new sync module with Spotify app loaded and car display via BT. Note track name , artist and time .
  13. should read 15/03/2015
  14. yes just two plugs and two plastic mounting pins. Sync module is mounted above the black cardboard trim above the passengers footwell . My module came from a 2015 car and looks the same as the old module apart from it has two sockets and old one had three. The old one had three sockets but only used two plugs so no problem. If you look at the number on the module on the lower right its the date code in reverse 20150315 = 15/03/2013
