Perhaps they don't know the answer ?
I certainly have no useful info to contribute to this thread as it is not something I would need to do to my car or have the know how to do anyway !! lol

Good luck in finding your advice.

I imagine it is possible just like the MK7 Fiesta - unfortunately I don't have access to a MK3 Focus to test.

Hi, I'm not sure about the cruise control, I know it is only a £200 option, but I would have thought the cost of fitting it afterwards might be prohibitive, even if was physically possible. The DDS isn't even an option on the Zetec. Of course it might be possible but then the displays I think are different from the Zetec to the Titanium. I am not sure if the type 1 would mean that it doesn't contain the necessary electronics to actually display the DDS. therefore you might need a type 2 and then there is no guarantee the ecu would recognise it. I would have thought, even though it is too late now, it would have been better to have purchased, and cheaper, to have specified the cruise control option. Or if it is pre-owned, a Titanium with all the goodies you wanted..

Out of interest, what made you go from a Titanium Mk2.5 to a Zetec Mk3? Don't think I would have been keen to downstep a spec and lose the toys just to have the latest model :unsure:

I would have thought the hassle and expense of trying to enable cruise wouldn't be worth it ultimately though. Might be worth you looking at the Fiesta section as I remember there being a few threads about enabling it there so that might give you a few clues? Good luck :)

Once someone creates a program similar to ff2 etc etc with the elm327 i will be able to enable it and then just install the buttons etc

When you are offered a new car by parents you dont say no do you ?

Wish I had parents like that.

Your the first I have seen to look at switching things on, on the Mk 3. So I doubt very much anybody has given it a real go yet.

out of interest mate,

Thats a good deal on the trade in mate, i bought mine new in september of 2010 for 19,599.00 the equivalent in sterling it was £15,643.54 so i reckon you got a good trade in deal on yours for £10,550 my focus and preee's are moondust silver too, you will notice a sparke in the paint when the sun shines on it too and i reckin its a good colour and contrast's nicely with the black grills
a good mod for you would be to have the grills done in gloss black, would look sweet.

I think the problem here Jamie is experience, and there really hasnt been enough people out there who want to switch all the toys on the new motor on. You have to bear in mind, if you switch them on, you could invalidate your warranty, as its not factory fresh! so be careful what you want to do with it!

As for the tyre DD's I would be surprised if the sensors where there, as for the Cruise Control, I expect you wont have the unit installed, nor the sensors, so I expect it would be a more painful process, than working it onto your titanium...

ive just had a great idea,
if your titanium focus has the cruise control steering wheel, then park the car up at the garage for the trade in, then remove the steering wheel and drive home in your new focus, with the cruise control wheel ready to swap them over ;)
the garage never inspect the traded in car until you gone lol
