#398307 Autolock

Posted by Lenny on 16 August 2014 - 08:05 PM

Still waiting for my new  ZS to arrive (ford taking their time as usual) anyway I'm driving my mums 2013 Zetec at the moment and wondered wether there is an autolock feature that you can enable. On my old '02 clio I liked how it locked the doors at about 10mph and sort of got used to it so was wondering if the fiesta is capable of doing it from some hidden settings screen or something. 

The Auto lock feature has been phased out on all cars built from 2007 onwards,
The European safety crew had issues with autolock there claims were they didnt always unlock in the event of colission making it more difficult for emergency services,

Some cars such as tge focus mk2.5 were designed in 2005 before this rule came in to force,
So the software on the mk2.5 allowed this autolock feature,
It is possible to activate using a modified ELM327.
However all cars built from scratch 2007 onwards wont have autolock feature.

You can still press the button to lock all doors,
Fit an aftermarket alarm system which supports the feature,
But no car will roll off the production line with autolock ever again.

Now fitted to the car,
Bit tricky getting the spring to hook back in but got it after 10 minutes of talking to it: lol:

Here's before:


Here's after



Yes in the above image i also thought the end cap had come out a different shade but its not, its the curve and way it catches the light.


Another subtle improvement if i do say so myself :)

While fitting the wiper VickiC has informed me that she will soon be making a comeback next week,

She says she's also going to create three guides on the forum specially for the women drivers.

When asked :lol: "what guides do you plan to create"

She replied:

Filling windscreen bottle thingy under the bonnet,
Diagnosing the correct fuel for your car at the pumps followed by putting in in the car yourself,
Checking the oil level in the yoke,

I just hope she gets them all rite first time,

Great minds think alike lenny. I done mine today aswel.


I put a large bag on the kitchen floor and sprayed it in the house: lol: bad bad idea,
Whole family has since shipped out of the house due to the smell of solvents,
My nostrils are also gloss black and right side of my face is aching but second coat applied now just waiting for it to dry,
Was going to use vicki's hair dryer then i thought better not lol

Second coat applied

Perhaps i got out of bed too early this morning i don't know,
What i do know is,: the day is feeling very long and I'm bored :(

So I've removed the rear wiper from the focus,
Dissected its components and sprayed it gloss black same as front grills and splitter,

Good thing about the bosh rear wiper blade is:
The rubber strip is interchangeable so ill be able to keep the gloss black arm when changing the wiper.

Here's the progress so far:

Would have been epic tarantino stuff,
Had a motorcycle been behind you,
Bonnet ripped off rotating in the air coliding with the head of the motorcyclest
Although you would need a front and rear dash cam for that,
Can you imagine how many Youtube hits that would get?

I'm not so sure they would Lenny, I think the force of the wind grabbing the bonnet would either rip the piston out the cylinder or rip the complete strut off it's mounting.

After viewing a few episodes of "Air Crash Investigations " on Discovery Channel this morning, yeah mate i agree with you 100% :lol:

If you have any problems fitting let me know,
Cup holder illumination is also a nice mod

The footwell light thing really is that simple...if your car has the sockets, which apparantly most mk3 cars do.
Get a little mirror and look up midway along under the glovebox. You should see an empty bulb socket....simply fit the bulb.
Similar drivers side about level with the brake pedal.
Best of luck with it.


Footwell lighting will be good if its as easy as it sounds :) I don`t really trust myself with wiring haha

I have done a guide on fitting front and rear footwell lighting aswell as illuminated ignition ring,
See link on my profile page,
Guide to Fitting Footwell Lighting In Your Ford Click Here
If you don't have footwell lighting sockets currently there or would like to add any of the above i can link you to all supplies and instruct you on the process if desired.
