Guide For Focus Mk2/mk2.5 C-Max/kuga ~Elm 327 Cable And Ff2 Program

2,509 posts in this topic

is their a way of doing that ?

There is no a way of doing it , as they will not sell the cable outside of Russia , the cable is also coded , and timed , 1year 80 pound , 6 months 40 pound .if you got a cable you would have to pay the subs for 1 year or 6 months then they turn the cable off again.

So in a nutshell , looks like a great program but we are not going to get it, and to be honest at 80 pound per year i would buy a Chinese IDS like JohnH has done , long term it would be better value.

please reference pics below...

Hmm.. Unfortunately I know nothing about *-CD clusters, only -A* and -B*. I'm sure that we have no any parts like this in Russia.

Could you please take a photo of your cluster and share it for me?

Thanks in advance..

mrmetallica,

i's necessary to put all three files in one folder to avoid this error.

nuno8210,

eco mode will be enabled in any case, it's the part of firmware. Shift up indicator will not work until you reprogram your PCM with a special firmware. unfortunately I don't know it's number..

Nitemare,

glad that all now ok with your and your friend's cluster :)

any body done this ?or know where can get the soft ware.

I had done it with my car - all works perfectly, fold and unfold.

unfortunately I think you can't get it anywhere else, only with DarkLeo's adapter and firmware. as I know it's a very hard work to rewrite a firmware - this work took a several months for him

james_60,

Pree,

ADS uses it's own adapter, which has nothing to do with ELM327. It had the proprietary designed PCB and controller firmware.

What do you mean when you say Gearbox firmware ? , ELmConfig only upgrades the Firmware for the Speedo Cluster.

Si es posible actualizar mi cuadro de km lo más seguro esque este fin de semana lo actualice.

activé la flecha verde, pero no hace su función, sin embargo, cuando doy al contacto la flecha si que se enciende como en la foto

Siento todas las molestias que estoy causando

If you update the Firmware to V509 on the cluster, then yes the Green Arrow and Eco should both work.The Green arrow should then light up at about 2000rpm telling you to change gear,

I would not like to make a guess at upgrading the firmware for that Rom version , hopefully civil-zz will be back on here and read your post and advise you better , seems like some of the codes are different between countries.

I would hold back and wait for civil-zz as he may know more than I regarding your upgrade.

Steering tab is back. I had to uncheck the shift up box.

I checked the Eco mode, is working okay. I checked the Eco shift up....green arrow light up when ignition goes on, but no shift light when going into revs. Anyone have an idea?

The shift up light shows at 6500 rpm in petrol cars, that is if you don't have Eco shift up on

Green light requires a modification to PCM module too!! As yet this is not configuralble in ELM Config??

It will turn out to be a new update of elmconfig with PCM?

Someone working in this?

I dont' know if will be easy to update the PCM. This will be differente for petrol and diesel engines. Maybe someone will "copy" the PCM from a 2010 Econetic car. But here in Portugal there were only 1.6 TDci econetic cars.. No 2.0 TDci or petrol engines :-(

I see an interesting interface at jusupoff.narod.ru with alot of features. Unfortunately, the software is only in russian and the owner is not interested to make one in english.
