In Topic: Guide For Focus Mk2/mk2.5 C-Max/kuga ~Elm 327 Cable And Ff2 Program

Today, 07:18 AM

Hi guys, 
I have enabled the ELMConfig a few gimmicks. 
Radio information and phone information in the onboard computer. 
My question is, can you get the names of the MP3 files to display in the onboard computer? 
My car is a Ford Focus RS MK2. 
regards Martin

The instrument cluster display does not show MP3 names. There is no possibility to change this.

I suppose it could technically be possible to show MP3 names on the display but for some reason the firmware of the instrument custer and/or radio does not support it.

The U1900 code refers to a CANbus communication fault. This code can be caused by a lot of things. Many cars do have this code and most times there is no actual problem. This code can also be generated by a diagnostic interface during diagnostics.



As long as there are no actual problems you can ignore this code.

The remote control functions can be programmed using the procedure which is listed in the instruction manual.

To program the PATS system a suitable diagnostic system with PATS (CODED PATS) programming capability is required. For example the Ford IDS diagnostic system or the FoCom diagnostic system. If you do not own such a diagnostic system yourself you have to find someone who has or go to your local Ford dealer.

There are no other ways to program the PATS system yourself on a Focus MK2/MK2.5.

The Focus MK3 folding key can also be used on a Focus MK2/MK2.5.

The part numbers of the non remote Focus MK2/MK2.5 and Focus MK3 keys are identical. This means that the PATS chips of both vehicles are the same (4D63 PATS chip). The frequency of the remote control is also the same on both vehicles (433 Mhz).

In Topic: Window Roolup Module On Zetec

In my opinion many Chinese products are not that bad. I have seen many chinese products which are actually made quite good.

I took a quick look at the Focus MK3 schematics ( http://www.fordowner...-mk225-and-mk3/ ). In my opinion it should be possible to install this module. On the Focus MK3 with 2 power windows the windows are controlled directly by the window switches. You have to connect the module wiring between the Original wiring of the switches to the electric motors.

I suppose the biggest installation problem will be getting the wiring of the module into the doors. It may be nescesary to remove the doors. Otherwise there may not be enough space to install the extra wiring.

Another major issue is that the 2-window power windows do not have pinch protection. When operating the windows by the window switches this is no problem. After installing such a module the windows will close completely after locking the car. If something or someone gets trapped between the window it will not stop!
