Are the SRM modules correctly configured for the car? I have seen before that companies completely erase all data of a SRM module. In this case the SRM module must be configured for the correct settings of the car.

You should check the SRM module first for correct configuration. If these setting are correct the SRM module itself should not be the problem.


Did you also install a new crash sensor?

Why did you remove the Restraints Control Module (RCM) out of the vehicle to reset it and how is the RCM reset?

The RCM can easily be reset inside the vehicle by a suitable diagnostic system. Even a cheap ELM327 interface combined with the free ELMconfig software can reset the crash data of the RCM.

Which diagnostic system do you use to diagnose the RCM? Most generic diagnostic system are not showing manufacturer specific DTC codes. A Ford specific diagnostic system will show DTC codes which a generic diagnostic system may not show.


Personally I would start by diagnosing the RCM using a suitable Ford specific diagnostic system. If after diagnostics there are still no codes stored into the RCM the RCM itself may be defective or not configured correctly.

After the Phone has found the Ford Audio you have to select PIN 0000 to connect. This is not the actual PIN code but a code which forces the Ford Audio system to show the correct code. After the correct code is shown on the radio screen you have to select this code on the Phone and connect to the Ford Audio system. Now the Phone should be connected to the Ford Audio System.


Also note that the Bluetooth/Voicecontrol needs to be updated to the latest firmware version to support some newer Phone types. On the Focus MK2.5 with a USB connection you can perform the update yourself using the Ford Audio Update. On the Focus MK2.5 the update can only be performed by a Ford dealer.

The latest available update for this system was released in November 2012. Officially there is no support for this system anymore. Because of this Ford also removed all download links of the Ford Audio Update from the Ford websites. Because there is no support anymore the system will become outdated. This may result in problems with some newer Phone types.

In Topic: Activating Cruise Control - 1.6Tdci?

Nice. You are defineately going to enjoy the Cruise Control system. Personally I find it a bit strange that the Titanium X did not have Cruise Control as standard. On the Dutch Titanium version it actually was a standard feature. Even some lower spec versions came with Cruise Control as standard.

I retrofitted the original Cruise Control several times on a Focus MK2/MK2.5 but never on a 1.6 TDCI.


Next month I am going to retrofit the original Cruise Control to my Focus MK3. Retrofitting Cruise Control to the Focus MK3 is even easier than retrofitting Cruise Control to the focus MK2/MK2.5.

The latest version of ELMconfig is 0.2.15.


Version 0.2.10 is an outdated version which was released in September 2013.
