Jeebowhite, following your advice I was able to remove the lower cover quite easily. Just hope I can get it back! The connector has 6 wires including the all important white/brown ones. I plan to connect these wires to my modified radio stalk and enable CC using ELMConfig. Many thanks.

no worries!

 

I am just hoping that Civil can get hold of my PCM type as I am desperately trying to do the same :P

Using ELMConfig v.0.2.13b.

Having wired up my CC buttons, I have attempted to activate CC in the electronic modules with ELMConfig. I believe 0.2.13b to be the latest version. GEM and HEC were successful but I encountered a problem with PCM. I received the warning message "There is a non-empty VID block found in PCM. To write a new VID block reprogramming must be performed first". Please could any member advise me on how to proceed. Thanks.

Success! I have found that CC is working despite that fact that I was not able to enable it PCM, only GEM and HEC. Reading back the status of PCM using ELMConfig shows that integrated speed control is not checked, nevertheless it works.

Mine is the same.

It is not checked on reading PCM but has been working regardless for a year now..........

Looking forward to doing this!

 

I've been 'clean' for two years having not done anything to me focus!

 

All the Airbag covers however are £60 on eBay :o 

Already got my wheel so it's just that part left, let the waiting game begin...

Call up a few scrapyards, you could easily pick a cover up for a lot less than that!

Well done.

Shame that James Simpson trawls the internet and makes ideas his own (he even has the cheek to copyright Ford fitting instruction sheets :D)

Hello to the community. Sorry for my English.  I have a ford focus
mk2 owned 2005 and I am asking for your opinion  if I
should give a try for retrofitting cruise control.

The gem number is 4M5T-14A073-AE and there are no brown and white cables. The same to the connector  under steering column.

 

The switches on clutch pedal and on the brake pedal are present.

I think that I have to place the brown and white cable from the gem to the wheel. Also I am
thinking of buying these (http://www.aliexpres...1741793415.html) instead of a steering wheel.

I believe that since the are the switches on the pedals that it is possible that the cruise control will work.

What do you think?

You will definately need to run the wires up from the gem to the steering area, but you will also need to check with that seller what the resistances are for each switch, ask them to confirm whats in use as the mondeo are different, so its best to get it clarified, as they may be selling mondeo only for the focus and not even know it! but if it works, that is the best part of it, saves you from buying a new wheel, dont need to modify your stalk, so its the least invasive method, but does the job nicely!

 

Odd that the brake switches are present but not the under steering wires...

By resistances you mean the items that I have to place in gem in order for the cruise control to work. I cab find them from the owner's manual. Do I have to buy certain kind of cables too?

The resistors are built into the switches if you buy the part from alibaba, each switch has a resistance and closes the circuit. When the car sees nothing there, it doesnt worry, but for every other resistance switch it knows which button you pressed. If you go through this thread there is a wiring diagram.if you wanted to make your own. I just used some thin wire off ebay for a couple of quid, and it did the job you dont need anything special.
