In Topic: I Love My Ford Focus Zetec S 1L Eco Boost! Just A Few General Questions:)

Yesterday, 09:16 AM

Ford already offers a 140 HP version of the 1.0 ECOboost in the Fiesta Red and Black editions. This version still has the 5-speed gearbox.

As far as I can see (by comparing engine parts part numbers) the 125 HP and 140 HP versions are basically the same. Which means that only the software is different.

In the future I expect Ford to release an even more powerful version of the 1.0 ECOboost. Ford unofficially already mentioned testing of a 150 HP version.

On the Focus MK2/MK2.5 the PATS immobilizer system is integrated into both the instrument cluster and the PCM. If the instrument cluster needs to be replaced it is necessary to reconfigure the instrument cluster with the correct settings and reprogram the PATS system.

The PATS keys are programmed into the instrument cluster. The instrument cluster and the PCM do both have a configuration file which needs to be the same. If a new instrument cluster or PCM is installed the configuration files do not match and the car will be immobilized. To solve this the PATS keys needs to be programmed into the new instrument cluster and the instrument cluster needs to be paired with the PCM (PATS pairing or PATS initialization).

PATS programming can only be done with a Ford specific diagnostic system (Ford IDS or FoCom diagnostic system for example) which has the ability to program the CODED PATS system. Next to the diagnostic system you also need to have access to an OUTCODE/INCODE generator. After requesting access to the PATS programming functions using the diagnostic system the car generates an OUTCODE. You need to enter a correct INCODE before the PATS programming request will be accepted.

Your car may not even have remote central locking. The lower spec versions of the focus MK1 did have central locking without remote central locking.

A single button key with a light bulb is just a torch and no remote control. Lower spec Focus MK1 versions without remote central locking did have a standard ignition key or the 1 button torch ignition key.

Did you update the instrument cluster firmware recently?

Some of the custom instrument cluster firmware versions that are included with ELMconfig have the snowflake warning disabled. The Russian developer of this firmware disabled the snowflake warning because on their cold climates it is burning constantly.

If you are using the stock firmware versions the snowflake warning should function correctly.

Usually such model specific parts can only be bought at a Ford dealer. Aftermarket manufacturers do not produce such parts because it is not a part that breaks down much.
