I don't recall having seen that message.

Maybe is this just the Elm config 2.17 thing?

I don't think so... I wouldn't proceed any further if I were you!

Today I drove my car after a week and I tried if the cc works. And it is working! :-)

I enabled it in GEM, HEC and only the calibration data from PCM (although the pcm part was totally unintentional because I forgot to read the walkthrough).

And it works!

I installed buttons from aliexpress.com today, but didn't get cruise control working.

Self test procedure indicate that 4 buttons (+ -, OFF and RESUME) work, but the ON button gives no response.

I was wondering if someone might do me a favour and confirm if the ON button is supposed to beep when doing the self test?

  • Press and hold rear window switch, and while holding switch down switch on the ignition & then release the rear window switch. Test that OFF button gives a beep response, and then confirm if ON button is supposed to beep or not.

If it beeps something is wrong with the programming, and if it doesn't I need to order a new buttons. The programming guide I followed was this one:

To answer my own question, it looks like the ON button is supposed to beep, so there must be something wrong with my ON button :-(

Anyone know how to align the steering wheel to tires after retrofitting cruise control? I tried 2 times replacing wheel and changing position, but everytime it's in different position, now it's on 10 o'clock, when tires are straight. Cruise control works. I don't want to go to alignement service.

Before removing the steering wheel, mark its position with a permanent marker and save yourself the headache. Beside this very late advice, I can't think of anything other that trial and error, sorry.

No, actually I do: strip the steering wheel down to the retaining nut, drive in a straight line (to find when the wheels are straight), stop, mark the topmost point on the steering stem with a marker, remove the steering wheel, and realign it.

Ok, will try that tomorrow.

 

Update, central hole is hexagonal, didn't realise it before, so I had only 5 times to make wrong position of wheel. After 3rd try all is perfect now.

Hi, I'm looking to do this on my 2010 focus zetec. Looking at getting a steering wheel with cruise control buttons from a 2006 focus complete with airbag. Just wanted to check that changing the whole airbag won't cause any issues? Don't fancy cutting the cover and changing it if I can avoid it!

Thanks

To answer my own question, this weekend I swapped the complete steering wheel and airbag and configured using elmconfig. Cruise control is working perfectly and no airbag lights/issues as far as I can tell so far. Thanks to the writer of the guide and advice on programming in this thread!

Hi all,
I have Focus MK2 (2007), and CC is something I really want (and I still can't understand how is not part of the Titanium spec, but whatever...)

Is this I need to buy?

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2009-FOCUS-4-SPOKE-ZETEC-S-LEATHER-STEERING-WHEEL-USED-UNDAMAGED-GREAT-CONDITION-/282388184033?hash=item41bfa5bbe1:g:XfIAAOSwo4pYPuoF

 

Since it is from a MK2.5, will it work on mine?
Thank you for your help.

@sergiuRoUK

Did you perform the dashboard self-test?

Did you perform the CC button test after installing the steering wheel?

Did the ELMConfig procedure complete succesfully?

The ELMconfing procedure completed,I've done the cc button test after installing the steering wheel.

Don't know about the dashboard self test.

Dash self test will show if you have the CC LED in the instrument cluster: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FJ0i4U-O9WQ

How do you engage your CC? Do you know you have to press "ON" first, and then "SET"? And, your speed has to be above a certain threshold, I think it's 40Km/h (25MPH) or so.
