Looks good mate, looking forward to give it a go.
Did you have any luck with the auto levelling headlight adjustment?


Not yet, im still pulling together the base software functions. The first release will contain HEC, GEMs & DTC modes only..
As this will be a beta release im hoping that people will feedback their thoughts / commenst and any bugs that might be found.

I will then look to add other modules in Beta 0.2

I'm still hoping to get the first version out today, but my daughter has been ill all day so my coding / testing time has been very limited.

As this is the first verion, i only want to release the software to a few people, no more than 5 or 6.
If you are interested in Beta testing and understand that the software is likely to contain bugs and if your interested in helping to make the software better please send me a PM with your email address.

Please keep any further ideas coming, and i'll see what is possible to implement.


Would it be possible to have the power fold mirrors fold-in when the car is locked?

I had a courtesy car this would of been ideal to test! Did test elm on it for features that I probably wouldn't try on mine.

hi Psyence

Do you by any chance have any programs that will allow me to change settings like we can on our focus's mk2's that will work with the current fiesta model.

I want to fiddle around with my g/f's 2009 fiesta style lol

Anyone (civil-zz, Psyence, ...) willing to share required knowledge, algorithms etc. so we could create Android application capable of re-configuring AS-BUILT data just like Windows applications do? It's pretty inconvenient to carry laptop to my car while I could just do everything via ELM327 bluetooth dongle and my Android phone? Personally I am capable of Android programming should special timings. etc not be needed for serial communications.

Hi Jarp,

To get started the first thing i recommend is reading up on the ELM327 device spec and the OBD / CAN communication specs.
Once you understand how to get the basic communication functioning, i'll be able to answer more questions.

Hi James,

Sorry but the current version of the software only supports the Focus Mk 2 & its variants (C-max etc). Once the software matures i may try to add more functionality. I believe that the configuration parameters for the Fiesta are stored differently from the Focus, so it is not a small undertaking to understand where in memory the different settings are stored.

The DTC (fault code) side of my software may work, but i haven't tested it on any other car yet.

Hi,

Just came across this at the weekend, and I've got to say well done to all those involved in the software creation and the advice on this mod.
I own a Focus Mk3, and thought I'd try it on that, so purchased the ELM327 cable, and modified it with the switch yesterday.
I had the software downloaded and working, but alas it will not mod the MK3.
The ELMconfig software will read the OBD stuff, and the DTC codes, but is unable to get into the GEM or HEC bits.
Fingers crossed one of the software developers on here will look into the Focus MK3 in the future.

Thanks again, and keep up the good work.

Cheers,

Jon.
