      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      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. Sync2 Satnav Upgrade

    No a problem @Damiansbut are you sure that you have Sync 2 and not Sync 3 in your 17 Ranger? For sync 3 it is not possible. If you are not sure post a pic of your screen turned on. :)
  2. Mk3.5 Cruise Control Fitting

    This error has for real nothing to with cable quality. So your elm is totally OK. I guess it is about the calibration vbs file that is either missing or is not currently available. Forscan support is really helpful and will reply you always. So i really can recommend to contact them via: http://www.forscan.org/contactus.html And read the info...how exactly you should contact them. So you know exactly if their SW will support your car. ;)
  3. Mk3.5 Cruise Control Fitting

    You must please post here what error specifically you have because it might have nothing to do with cable and it will be then just waste of money. The advantage of the ucds cable is the software that is actually provided with the cable.it is waaay better than the focccus or forscan.
  4. Mk3.5 Cruise Control Fitting

    @ChrisCh It is not an issue of the Forscan and Focccus that they read BCM with dificulty...it is the problem of the ELM327 cable with slow chip. Try to use your UCDS cable to read with Forscan or Focccuss (it is compatible) and you will see that you will have no issues. The same applies to a better quality ELM cables not the chinese ones with manual switch with costs 15-40Pounds. ELM cables that are better quality have a STN chip and not the FTDI.
  5. Newer map than F5 sync 2 ??

    @james_60 Hi Jamie i would say it definetely depends on a country where you live in. For me it was worth as in the country where i live were opened in year 2016 new roads that were not in the F5 version...but are now in F6. Fun fact was that even some roads still in constructions are already inside :D or some POI like fuel stations that are also in constructions were there.

  8. Hi Bannko. Been reading all posts about activating sat nav. Can you please confirm the following. I have software version 3.08.15128. Does this mean that all I need to do is buy an ODBII capable of MS/HS and run forscan.  Get an extended licence and change the line that has been put on the sat nav forum. Once done do a master rest and this should show insert sd card. Get hold of a f5 card and hopefully eat nav will work.hanks Wayne

  12. Update Sync 2 The Easy Way

    @FenDanT: There should be no problem for you to install directly EU language pack to your SYNC :) so let us later know how it went as it will be valuable info for the futures for others. @ken078: Unfortunately hard to tell which one is used in French :(. But you cannot do anything wrong installing any of them. So just choose one where the FR lang. is :)
  13. Auto Lock on 2016 model

    So HOW TO ENABLE AUTOLOCK on Focus MK3 and MK3.5 1. Buy ELM327 diagnostic cable, plenty of them on ebay. As a search string type this: ELM Forscan https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2380057.m570.l1313.TR12.TRC2.A0.H0.XELM+Forscan.TRS0&_nkw=ELM+Forscan&_sacat=0 2. Download and install laterst version of software Focccus: http://ford.xtlt.ru/FoCCCus/ (current one is: FoCCCus_0.8.6.zip) 3. Download and install latest version of software Forscan: http://forscan.org/download.html (current one is: 2.3.11 beta for Windows) 4. Connect your laptop with ELM cable. 5. Start Focccus and on the initial TAB click READ FROM BCM - the car begins to blink like a christmas tree with warnings, it is hard to watch but ingnore it, lol 5b. At this point click another button "Save to file" to create a backup file and save it to your computer. Just in case. 6. Find line # 32 /- "Automatic locking by speed" and set new value to "Automatic locking" 7. Click WRITE TO BCM - and again be patient :) Using FOcccus will always cause that few DTC errors stays in the car. So: 8. Start program Forscan and click on the DTC icon. 9. Click small button to read DTC codes and after scan click another button to reset DTC codes. 10. Your car should be then clean from errors and happy driving with autlock :)
  14. RS airbox on ST ?

    RS airbox is the same as ST. Just the lid is different. And please note that the RS lid is much higher and the rubber part touches the bonnet - some kind of heat shield so that the hot air from the engine will not be sucked inside. So i do not recommend making a hole into your existing one. But i am also not sure if it is possible to buy the RS lid, i think you have to buy the whole box as a set. I have this RS air box in mine 1.5Ecoboost and there is a sound improvement so at least i can confirm you that :)
  15. Auto Lock on 2016 model

    If it would not, i would not also write it over here :) of course MK3.5 is supported at least definitely from year 2016 when i have firstly tried it.
