I just managed to buy myself some mondeo cruise control buttons (under £9), I am waiting for them now and I will hopefully find that they measure the same resistance and I can use these :D

Guys, after using the CC for a few days i noticed the following:

 

  • I think it would make sense to have some feedback when it is on but not active (it could light up orange).
  • It would be nice to show the selected speed setting on the screen, so you can easily tell the set speed, when you change it using the buttons.

 

Is either of the above available? I'm thinking that i might have missed something during activation. Thanks.

 

Also, does the shift-up option work any better when you are on CC, or does it still fire only at high revs?

Unfortunately neither of those are available. the green clock is the only icon, so cannot be changed, and the speed is not visible in the trip computer as its not an accessible option. The software only allows for modifying existing settings and configurations, not creating new ones unfortunately.

Civil is very good, but unfortunately he has limitations, however you could muster something yourself. You might be able to wire an LED in so that the LED illuminates all the time. Then when green is off and just LED is on, you know that its good to go?

This is not a cruise control part... As far as i can tell, it is only an incorrect listing... This looks like a standard indicator stalk.

Hello!
I'm new here and have also tried to get the cruise control on my Ford Focus 1.8 FFV work. I mount all things in the car but when I use ELMconfig 0.2.10 and read information from the car so I just get an error message (ELM incorrect response from ELM to request "10 87")
What's wrong? I have double checked all my soldering ELM OBD everything looks right as it should.40929-7505746be055e9e710fbc856c29350f3.j

I wonder if any member could help me with advice on how to remove the lower steering column shroud on my 2008 C-Max so I can check for CC wires? If have removed the top cover after releasing the clips, the radio controls and removed two torx screws from the lower cover, one black and one silver. However, the cover does not want to move and I am afraid of applying too much force. Any tips would be much appreciated. Thanks.

I would start by just looking at the fuseboard, and the main wiring harness for the brown and white.

 

If you just remove the bottom layer of cowling from under the steering column, you can then see the wires travelling through there.

Jeebowhite, thank you for taking the time to reply. At the start of this guide, Pidu suggests checking for the CC wires (white/brown) just behind the steering wheel. To do this, the lower part of the steering column cover has to be removed. Pidu says that it is held by clips from the top part and two Torx screws. The radio remote stalk also has to be removed. I have done all these things but the cover shows no sign of being loose, have I missed some other fixings? Pidu's guide was originally written for a Focus rather than a C-Max so there my be differences.

If the wires are present, I plan modifying the radio remote stalk to control the CC. I have checked the circuit board and the necessary circuit, given earlier in this guide, is easily implemented by changing a few of the surface mount resistors. I really do not want to remove the steering wheel given the issues of fiddling with the airbag. So it is all down to removing the lower cover.....

Although mine is the Focus CMAX, I found that it was just two clips.

 

As a precautionary method, I removed the upper half of the steering column as well to ensure that there was no damage caused by my heavy hands! but I unscrewed the two Torx screws, then lowered the steering height adjuster, and leaving it loose, was able to pull the plastic down. Its easier to start by pulling it away from the ignition barrel and downwards.
