nope, as long as there is HS and MS thats all that matters, no point in having an off switch.

That's great, cheers :)

 

Have now fired up the soldering iron and dived in without quite reading the info properly first time :rolleyes:

haha, good luck then, you might find you need to do a bit of solder - desolder if you jump too quick but good luck with it and hopefully you can get all the benefits from it! :)

Got there ok eventually, just a bit of juggling act having enough length in the switch wires to work with but then also get the box back together.

 

Maybe get it onto the car tomorrow depending on time :)

Plain old electric soldering iron, nothing fancy but it does the job, has served me well for years :)

 

Did have a butane one but just couldn't get it to work.

Had a crack at using my modified ELM327 on the car today.

 

Didn't go completely smooth, seemed to get some No Data issues and MS-can not working - double checked all the connections were wired right and with a bit more digging I found I had to take baud rate off auto detect before it would let me set the unit for MS-can but got there eventually.

 

Will take me a bit of time to find out what is useful to alter. So far I've got ESP option activated on the cluster menu, Driveaway locking, enabled approach/puddle lights to see if I can get power from this at the mirror connection. Found in the ACM menu that my car was set up for fabric interior so updated that and I set Radio info enabled on the cluster which doesn't seem to do anything?

 

Also somehow now the car beeps like crazy when it's in reverse, will be turning that one off pronto :rolleyes:

 

Anyone know how the puddle lights usually operate so I can do some voltage checks?

 

Cheers

Puddle lights are active after unlock and until auto relock I believe, radio info requires the right firmware on the mk2.5 cluster.

Thanks for the info there - I'll pull some trim off tonight then and check some voltages for the mirrors, plus see what firmware the software says I have on my cluster.

 

Just reading up now on the firmware update :)

Being lazy I've not looked up what the Focus RS setting on the HEC? does.

 

I assume it doesn't turn my car green and take some horsepower off it?

 

:P

I have started to remove the hated EPB from my 2006 C-Max Ghia, starting with the interior console and working to the outside later, and a few days ago I "took the plunge" and having bought a ready-modified Elm cable I went into the car menus, followed the advice on here and unticked the EPB boxes. All went well and thankfully I no longer have the persistent messages on the dash display advising of total EPB failure but have I removed everything I should have? I still have the electric switch connected and if I remove the key from the ignition without remembering to hold the switch down the EPB starts to operate automatically. Can this "auto application" be removed using the Elm, or will it need different software?

 

Have to say, all the advice on here has been brilliant and a great help. I would never have thought of attempting anything like this in the past, so much respect to all involved!! :)

not sure that you can disable it altogether with elm, you need to remove it from the HEC, GEM and probably the ECU.
