When in this test mode, i press the steering wheel buttons for cruise, i am getting the beep/flash...
Reckon all i need is activation based on this test.........


I think so too. I have seen this test results on some Russian forum but I didn't know how to turn it on.

P.S, My CC is already activated and working, but your info about IDS might be very useful for others. Cheers mate.

Sorry Peter , just reading the full thread properly now and see you have it activated already...I'm going to tackle the local Ford garage tomorrow as the head technican is a friend of a friend........blah blah , so could be worth a shot ? Too cold outside at the moment to check the GEM number and so on, - 4 here , staying put in front of the fire :)

Also forgot to mention about a little GEM input test i found earlier..... Hold the heated rear window button in and turn ignition on. Keep button pressed for a few seconds and you'll hear a beep. Now when you use any off the stalk controls you'll hear a beep and the indicators will flash also. This beep/flash confirms the GEM input of the lights,wipers etc........... Turn ignition off to cancel. When in this test mode, i press the steering wheel buttons for cruise, i am getting the beep/flash... Reckon all i need is activation based on this test.........


The above might be worth a post of its own, to bring it to others attention.

Did this test earlier and found that it did not cancel when ignition turned off.
Had to follow same routine e.g. press and hold heater button on ignition to disable it.
Thought i'd be stuck with it on whilst driving - not good... :wacko:
All fine now.. ^_^

Hi.
Do you have any idea if mk2 and mk2,5 steering wheels are interchangeable? I asked my ford dealership. They agree to reprogram the car but say that according to their info mk2 and mk2,5 have different steering wheel part number. As far as I can see there is no difference. Do you guys have any clue?

Hi mate,
the Mk2 and Mk2.5 are identical cars mechanicly, and the haynes manual is the same one for both cars so the wiring and plugs are all the same,
the only difference in them is the body styling, all looms and fittings are identical, ford tend to change part numbers with identical parts possibly to maintain a patient over the design but all are the same as far as i am aware ;)

I have found something very interesting. It looks like Ford IDS is no more required to activate some options in Focus Mk2 and Mk2.5.

http://forffclub.narod.ru/elm/elm-ff2/

(pls use some translator - Google Chrome or similar)

This is Russian software working with ELM327 interface (costs only 12 quid). Gives us lots of possibilities - activation of cruise control, washer fluid warning light, display of real time fuel usage in pre-lift models, display of RDS and telephone info on onboard computer (these were confirmed on other forum) and many many others, still learning about this software.

I think it is time to get interface for Ford :)

That is an absolute gold mine of a find, and I can confirm the 6th tick box says "Cruise Control"! (kpyn3-....)

This is another find that you should start its own thread for, any one on here speak Russian?

I used Russian in my previous job but it was not related with cars so have to learn new vocabulary.

Anyway this software gives lots of possibilities, to use all of them it is required to modify ELM interface, but it is rather simple job.

Not all options have been tested, here are just some of them:
- FOB opening drivers doors only, next press of the FOB opens rest of the doors and boot (this can be done without any software)
- auto doors locking when driving
- auto turn on of windscreen heating
- repeaters confirming locking the car after FOB was pressed once or twice
- deadlock after one FOB press
- light sensor
- headlight washers
- rain sensor
- cruise control
- ESP
- auto rear wiper on reverse
- additional functions on onboard computer
- washer fluid low level warning
- Ford ECO mode
- Auto start stop

Of course activation of some of the features requires fitting additional sensors / equipment, some will work only in cars with relevant trim level, other should work in every car.

I'm assuming that as the OP has a very similar car to mine, mine's is likely to have the required plugs, etc and just needs the steering wheel and ECU activation?

My car is a 2007 2.0 TDCi Titanium.

Yes, if you are lucky you need steering wheel and ECU activation. Unfo cars with the same trim may have different GEM, wiring etc. so it is still necessary to check all the things mentioned in the first post.
