Guide Fitting Cruise Control Focus Mk2 & Mk2.5 And Ford C-Max

Recommended Posts

Fixed my car and tried the on and set button, nothing happens. :(

I've tested the GEM Module,like in this video and I get the beep so I have conection. I think it's the PCM that dosn't have the CC enabeld.

Put together a mock button pad from cheap parts. Resistors are dirt cheap, so are switches. Don't quit before even trying :)

thank for this guide its worked for me :D just to confirm my GEM was BC.

hooked it up with the cable after getting the programs going. replaced the steering wheel to a 4 spoke with buttons.

activated in GEM & HEC luckily PCM was already on! :) 

not sure how important also i managed all this on Windows 10.

so all good in the hood cruising along.

So having read most of this mammoth Im going to seriously look at getting my CC back working .

 when I say back working I have a mk2 ghia tdci, after a few  problems when I bought the car the cc worked at first then when i got the car back from the seller the cc failed to work .

So I think its just a case of reactivating using elmconfig.

 

I did try enquiring at my local ford dealership but they have never responded .

Anyone in the Manchester area have any luck doing this if so feel free to give me a shout please.

 

Regards Adam

Adam, I'd test the wiring first using the heated rear windscreen test.
Press and hold the heated rear windscreen button whilst turning the key to position II then let go and it should beep. Every button press should then give a beep. This should narrow down whether your issue is hardware or software.

So I tested the wiring as you have described and the buttons all work and get a beep. 

 Problem is how do you turn the testing off as I turned the ignition back to off and it still beeps.

Turning the car off and removing the key should turn off the test mode! If it doesn't then maybe you have bigger issues than just the cruise control.

So I have gone back to the car and the test mode is off so all is good on that front.

 I regards to the CC buttons they all work , looks like this weekend im going to be on the hunt to get it all activated / re activated.

Relieved to hear that! I wouldn't fancy being stuck with that beep going off every time I used the indicators or turned my wipers on!

Hey guys!

I'm new here, been reading this forum for a few months now and in the process I gained a wealth of nifty knowledge on how to do stuff to my Focus. I wanted to throw my two cents in on the topic of retrofitting CC. If you're cheap like me, but lack the technical skills of fabricating and soldering new parts you can just buy CC buttons from eBay or Aliexpress for not that much money (little north of 22EUR) and with a little cutting and gluing attach them to your three spoke steering wheel. You can see the end result of my work. It does not look original by any stretch of the imagination, but I don't think it's an eyesore, plus I did not have to source a four spoke steering wheel (I have never even seen a four spoke wheel covered in blue leather anyway).

i have a good elm cable and am using uptodate software 

i can activate in the gem but when I go to the pcm it comes up with this error
