  1. Finally got all door handle leds fitted and working off side lights I used the small blanking grommet hole in front doors just below door gaiter. I ran the wires from illumination and ground wires in quadlock behind head unit. Threaded wires through grommet with a small piece of rubber flexi hose into gaiter for a nice fit and water tight. Pleased with finished result working off main lights rather than being on permanent using window switch.
  2. Thanks for replying guys I thought as much as there is no room to get connector out with door open even with door strap removed not much difference. May have to settle for them being on permanent or like you say take doors off. Don't fancy fiddling with it for 10 hours Why do Ford have to complicate even the simple jobs like threading a piece of wire.
  3. Has anyone managed to successfully put new wiring through the front door Molex connector and rubber gaiter without actually removing the door. I'm trying to add the led's to the door handles but want them to work off side lights and not be on permanently. Even better still does anyone know if there is wiring for side lights in car door I can tap into as the Electric window and mirror switches light up. Any help advice appreciated.
  4. Hi Guys Can I pick your brains because you all seem very experienced and know your way around the ford audio wiring. I have fitted an aftermarket touch screen with can bus but still can't get the steering wheel controls to work. When I look in the ford quadlock at pin 6 and 8 which should have these swc wires there is nothing. There are 3 wires separate not connected to anything white/purple white/grey and 1 black can you tell me if these are the swc wires that I need to connect appreciate any feedback. Thanks
  5. ScorpionSX I have only just got around to taking out head unit to splice wires as you suggested for button illumination. Did this today and all now working ok.Thanks Still no joy with broadband dongle though, its a Huawei E3231 PAYG with 1 month of data on. What did you put in for the APN address , I have 3GNET *99# No user name and no password. Its not the end of the world if I cant get it on, its just annoying when you know its capable. Thanks again for your help, much appreciated.
  6. ScopionSX Thanks for the reply and advice I will take HU out over weekend and splice wires together, don't have DRL's so hopefully buttons will work. I will then have a look into the APN settings for Three 3G Dongle. Let you know how it turns out, but thanks for your help.
  7. scorpionSX I have this same HU ,but don't seem to be able to find the correct wire for lighting buttons when ignition switched on. Also won't connect to 3gnet or explorer through my USB dongle. As yours all seems good, if you can enlighten me in any of the above I would very much appreciate your Help and advice. Everything else on the HU works fine . Thanks
  8. Just one more question on this unit , it has VMCD not being a tecky how does this work. When I press the option it just says no encoded cd. Any pointers would be most helpful. Thanks
  9. I have a unit fitted very similar to this , but although it has canbus I can't get the steering wheel controls to connect and also the head unit buttons do not light up. Any ideas ,suggestions would be most welcome. The big let down with these is the instruction manuals are very vague at best.
  10. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ford-FOCUS-Custom-USB-Dash-Connection-Point-Custom-MP3-3-5mm-Jack-SILVER-/221530958893? troy45 here is link for usb / ipod switch, mine took approx. 6 days to arrive.
  11. troy45,i have same unit does quite a lot for the cost. You can change reverse camera mute if you go to menu then common change to on or off. You can do same with dvd from menu choose video it then lets you have dvd player on or off when driving. Unlike you though my steering buttons will not work nor can I get the unit buttons to light up with my side lights. I also ordered off ebay a silver switch with usb / ipod connection including cable to plug n play for £14.99. It fits neat and looks like it was always there.
  12. Thanks for the diagram Stoney871 , i will remove unit and try figure these out , not expert with car electrics but at least with your diagram i have something to follow. I will give it a go and let you know the outcome. Thanks for all your help .
  13. Thanks Stoney871 i would appreciate a pinout diagram as nothing to go by at the moment. As i said previously the instructions with these units are poor , so its more plug and sort it as you go. The steering controls do beep when pressed , just do not change anything. Thanks again for your reply.
  14. please excuse the spelling of instructions.
  15. Thanks troy45 i will set the clock as you say and see if that does the trick. Its just a bit annoying when everything else works fine , even fitted reverse camera and this works ok. The thing is with these units is the lack of clear instuctions. Thanks again for your help.
