Oh cr*p, a didn't know you're talkin' about MK3 :). ELMconfig and MK3 works not, of course. But on MK2/2.5 works fine.

Sorry for confusion. :rolleyes:

On the MK2/MK2.5 ELMconfig has the ability to update the PCM firmware. You only need an ELM327 interface which supports a Baudrate of 115200 or higher (preferable 500000) and a suitable firmware file for your PCM/engine type.

Most of the latest PCM firmware files can be downloaded from the following website:

http://civil.iffc.ru...fig/pcm_frw.htm


Note that the firmware update procedure can cause problems on some firmware versions of the 1.8 TDCI. In some cases it may occur that the car will not start after the firmware update. If this happens it is necessary to perform the PATS pairing/PATS initialization procedure with a suitable diagnostic interface (Ford IDS or FoCom for example). As far as I know this only happens on some firmware versions of the 1.8 TDCI.

Just so you know, IDS will not work, unless you have the VCM adapter, you cannot use an elm cable with IDS....

you might get away with Formidable, but thats it, with ELMConfig its the modified cable, but UCDS and IDS are both paid for apps with special cables and are the only two pieces of software I know of that will recode the PATS system, you wont find free software that will use the ELM cable to do this, I can guarantee you that much.

No worries, just be wary that the computer you use should be of modern and good spec, if you are running off a slow / virtual PC, then it can stop you writing to the cluster.

I found a program like ELMCONFIG but that works (FOR NOW) only on Focus MK3

 

Its name is FOCCCUS and it's developed by a user of the same russian forum as elmconfig.

 

Here: http://ford.xtlt.ru/

You will find two links:

 

"AS built" is a utility to download (edit and save to file) the AS BUILT CONFIGURATION of your car from ETIS.

"FOCCCUS" is a promising software that allow you to change your current BCM and IPC configurations, with some addional and interesting tools. (like Elmconfig)

 

I looked for that on this forum but found nothing about adn wanted to start a new topic, but I'm not allowed to do it. So I posted here.

If anyone with higher privileges want to start a topic dedicated to FoCCCus is free to do it and let me know :)

 

Here's my same topic (with screenshots) on our italian (Ford Focus Mk3) forum: http://fordfocus.for...net/?t=56029113

 

Thanks for the link to this latest software for the MK3, just activated powerfold mirrors, puddle lights and auto door lock on my 2012 Zetec S.

 

Cheers,

 

Jon.

Hi dudes

 

If we can now access the mk3 focus with an elm327 is there a program for the mk7 fiesta

 

Surely someone has created one ?
