In Topic: Focus Bluetooth Issues

Today, 06:43 AM

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 Because there is no support anymore the system will become outdated.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?

Yesterday, 02:11 PM

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Version 0.2.10 is an outdated version which was released in September 2013.

Which version of ELMconfig are you using?

On the latest versions of the ELMconfig software some versions of the 1.6 TDCI are supported. If I remember correctly the 1.6 TDCI was never available in Russia. This makes it difficult for the author of the ELMconfig software to test the program functionality on the 1.6 TDCI.

On the PCM tab of the ELMconfig program you have to select the correct type of PCM first. If your exact type of PCM is not listed it is currently not supported.

In many cases diagnostics of the PCM does require an ELM327 interface which supports a higher Baudrate. Some interfaces which do not support higher Baudrates are not suitable to diagnose the PCM (and some other functions).

In Topic: Mk2.5 Mirrors On Mk2??? Help.

19 November 2014 - 06:51 PM

Focus MK2.5 do not fit on MK2 doors without modifications. The mounting of the MK2.5 mirrors is slightly different.

If you want to install MK2.5 mirrors you should use the mirrors of the late Focus CC MK2.5 (the early MK2.5 Focus CC did still have the MK2 mirrors). These should be a straight fit because on the Focus CC there are much less differences between the MK2 and MK2.5 than on the normal Focus MK2/MK2.5.

Most functions of the MK2.5 mirrors are controlled over the CANbus system by the door modules. The MK2 does only have door modules if it has one or more of the following functions:

* Double locking.
* Comfort windows (4 electric windows).
* Mirrors with indicators.
* Mirrors with puddle lamps.

If the MK2 has door modules you can install the MK2.5 door wiring looms. If the MK2 does not have door modules you either have to install the door modules and wiring looms and reprogram the car or you have to rewire the mirrors and add the missing wiring.
