Hi There. Anyone here has a ford Focus ST with autolights feature, could someone please take a photo of the fuse box inside glove box and outside in the engine bay.
I would like to see if i'm missing any relays of fuses before i turn this feature on.
You help would be much appreciated...

Cheers

As far as i know for the autolight feature you need the light/rain sensor (including all wiring) and the light switch with AUTO position.

If your car hasn't got these parts the autolights feature wil not work.

My MK2 has the autolight feature combined with the original daytime running lights. When the light switch is at the AUTO position the headlamps are always burning at 80%. When it becomes dark enough the other lights (tail lights, dashboard lights) are switched on automatically and the headlamps start burning at 100%.

The DRL feature on UK cars is not active with Auto lights, although a Wiring Mod can be done , for which Pidu has a guide on here to do.

I have all the parts retrofitted just need to know if i need any relays. That's why i ask kindly if anyone has an ST 2007 model could i please have a look at the photos so i can compare with mine to see if im missing anything on the fuse boxes inside and outside bonnet.

Cheers

Hello there!
Thank you for all your work on this guide.
I've managed to use this program to activate the instant MPG, etc.. on my mk2 focus.

I'd like to go further and activate the other features but this requires the mod to the elm327 cable.

I'm not brilliant at soldering and stuff and was wondering, is there a modified cable that I can buy online somewhere?

Thanks for your help.

It's honestly not that difficult to solder it. Follow the guide - it's easier than it first seems. And if you screw it up, it's not THAT much more to get a new cable and try again.

It's not matter of modifying a cable, but ELM327 interface itself - see first post in this topic.

If you really don't want to solder, then you can reallocate wires (swap a pair of CAN-HS with a pair of wires responsible for CAN-MS) in diagnostic socket, but remember to put them later in right order (just in case of a real failure your could be diagnosed with IDS) - I suggest to label wires and pay attention not to short cut them :)

Ryan , it's easy enough. Practice soldering on some spare wires you will soon get the hang of it.
