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

20 December 2012 - 12:25 PM

I have succesfully upgraded the MK2.5 instrument cluster outside of the car before it was programmed into my MK2.

I have connected a 12 volt power source to the instrument cluster and the ELM327 interface and connected the HS-CAN bus wiring between the instrument cluster ande the ELM327 interface.

After this i have disabled the screen saver, internet connection and anti virus/firewall software. The upgrade procedure worked without any problems.


I have read that European and Asian Focus MK2.5 instrument clusters are made by different manufacturers. Maybe the European firmware isn't compatible with your instrument cluster.


Well, in this case my cluster maybe isn't compatible because is European (Portugal but make in Germany)!!!
Where can i see if my cluster is compatible?
Tks.

yeah the 1st time I updated it and it failed half way through.
to say I !Removed! myself is a understatement.
all the clocks were not working but you can still start the car.

just ran the update again and it was fine


I understand what you say!! and that's my fear!!
But in the end everything was working, right?

Good afternoon guys!
I need your help / clarification before and start the cluster update my Focus mk2.5 from 2009.
I have the rom 0243, can I update to 0509?
The ELM327 is set to 38400 bit / s baud rate. I have to change to another value or keep it?
If something goes wrong, the car is immobilized?
Thanks for your help and sorry for my English!
