Program fiesta for bluetooth

Recommended Posts

Hi does anyone know where I can program a mk7 fiesta in or around Manchester to accept the bluetooth as I have everything. I just need to put it in as it just came out of another fiesta

Pretty sure all you need is a modified elm 327 and to download forscan (free). Should be a case of ticking a box next to enablr bluetooth and pressing save.

If that doesn't do it then last resort is to find someone with ford IDS (it's a fair few hundred quid to buy it last time I checked).

I've heard modded elm only works on the focus, not the fiesta. 

The options that need in the ford IDS is along the lines of bt VC high with iPod function

Ford dealer can do it, but a lot of them are clueless with anything that doesn't burn or move. They might need some specific details on what to do. Should cost about 15-30 mins labour if you get a knowledgeable one with the electronic side of things / changing the car configuration file. 

 

Here's my notes from when I upgraded my previous fiesta:

 

Update display (FDIM), audio (ACM) via IDS if required

 Get car-config

 Change USB Accessory Unit (byte 154) to With USB Unit and iPod function (04)

bluetooth Handsfree (byte 157) to BT/VC Phone Interface + USB connect (05)

 Upload car config back to car


Config notes : 
Possibly in IDS Toolbox - > Module Programming (modifies ECU)
 “Module Programming > Programmable Parameters > Car Configuration Parameter(s) under Vehicle 
configuration
-Retrieve the vehicle configuration data
-View the vehicle configuration data
-Modify and reinstate the vehicle data
-Retrieve FordEtis derived ASBUILT data
-Configure vehicle with back-up data”
For manual asbuilt (CCC format) XML modification:
String 
20000000001000002
Change to
20000000004000005

For dropdown asbuilt modification:
USB Accessory Unit: Select “With USB Unit and iPod function”
Bluetooth Handsfree: Select “BT/VC Phone Interface + USB Connect”

Nope, my modified Elm327 works just fine with forscan on my Fiesta.

As long as somebody has done this upgrade before and made a method on how to do it then forscan is easy enough to anybody who can use a pc. Just make sure the option is there before you buy one.

Ford dealers probably won't touch it, you'd need to find somebody who has bought an IDS unit with the software. I've seen some of these units cost over £1000, however there are some chinese knock offs on ebay for under £200.
