Got the car recoded today, and it all works!
So it doesnt matter wich BT module you got, they all work as long as the harness is for the right build year.

The trip computer does not work. But after the recoding and new asbuilt file, at least the trip button on the stalk is working, it now resets the trip counter. But it would be great to have the other functions working aswell.

 

 

Congratulations on the result, neps!

 

I am doing the same upgrade (no bt --> bt + usb) here in Denmark, and only need the Bluetooth loom (1580659) 

According to the online catalogue you mentioned earlier this loom is for a Right hand driven car whereas the 1580658 is for a Left hand driven car... Since you have ordered the 1580659 i assume that it possibly is the same loom..? 

 

Does the VOICE button on the new indicator stalk you installed work aswell after coding, and was the trip computer working before the coding (km/l, km to refuel, avg. speed) ?

The trip computer should work without the temp sensor.

Im am pretty sure I ordered the left hand part, but when i check now I see that i ordered the right hand.
The rhd is pretty long, so I had to tuck it away above the footwell. Maybe the LHD part is cheaper. ( i payed £120-ish (1250 kroner)

The voice did not work at all before coding. After coding it asks me to speak a command. The trip did not work before, and does not work now after (as i wrote in the previous post) All it does is resetting the trip counter.

Okay, i'll just order the RHD loom, then i have some length to work with. It's around the same price here aswell. 

 

 

Awesome! :lol:  All i need is the loom now and the coding from my dealer. What did they charge you for that? around 800 kroner?

 

 

I think it's because your car is a Ambiente/Trend model that the trip computer isn't there..?

They charged 1260 kroner for a five minute job. I checked the price at a other dealer first, they quoted 900, but they was not so cooperative, and since I know the guy at the last place i chose them. I got a coupple of other things sorted at the same time.

My car is a econetic, model with low fuelconsumption.green shiftlight etc.

Theres no trip computer there, but that shoul have been enabled now with the new asbuilt file I got from iNath. Just need to confirm this first before I claim them wrong and demand the work done again.

Did you check the price for both rhd and lhd looms? Im wondering If the rhd is more expensive because its not our market.

I first bought the 1720952 loom for 2011 models, that costed half the price.

I thought so, they are pretty expensive with stuff like this. 

 

Aah okay, i thought that it was standard on that model, since you have the little "game" with getting long a mileage.. I guess i was wrong  :)

 

I actually haven't checked it, i first chekced the number on the database afterwards. The actual price here in Denmark for (1580659) is 840kr + 25% moms, so it comes up to 1050 kroner. I will check it when i am going back to my dealer, if the LHD loom is cheaper, i'll order that instead. :) 

 

I got the 2010-2012 loom from a breakers yard this october which i can't use... So if anyone is interested!!  ;)

I want to make sure it will fit, obviously. If it fits I'm happy to buy it from you for the price you paid and shipping costs ( if they are not extremely high from DK to NL).

The loom i have has the same connection as neps' but i also have the BIG loom that connects the whole front, from a 2010 model which the Bluetooth loom goes into., 

Its a bit more dificult to change, but it IS possible with a free weekend  :) it took me about 8-10 hours to change it, i dont know what you do for a living, but if you're a mechanic you can probaly do it much faster! 

All you really need is just to track where each of the connectors go to and remember to plug them ALL in (i forgot to connect the light switch which resulted a no starting car)..

But as long as you keep track and plug all the connectors in.......... Its easy peasy....  ;)

 

I took mine out again because it didnt fit my computer in the car, so now its just in storage and for sale  :)

Thanks for the offer but it sounds like a lot of extra work. I'd rather just buy the right BT loom for the 2011 Fiesta. If I find a fitting one I'm happy and otherwise I will wait for one to get scrapped. Hopefully they will let me take out the parts myself. Time is on my side, I currently have alternatives for USB and Bluetooth ( Griffin Autopilot and a Parrot thing I can remove)

This is the right model loom that i have for the 2010-2011-2012 models
The only problem is that the bt-loom has to go into the Big loom and not just the radio loom which the pre 2010 models do.....
But yes, if you can make an adaptor of some kind... I dont think you can buy one from Ford.. :-)
