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

Next to the shifting behaviour of the automatic gearbox the automatic transmission settings also affects the throttle response of the engine.

On the Focus MK2/MK2.5 the throttle pedal is connected directly to the instrument cluster. The instrument cluster converts the resistance signal of the throttle pedal to a CANbus signal which is distributed to the PCM. Depending on the selected settings the instrument cluster softwarematically changes the throttle response.


On a manual shifted car the automatic transmission settings does also affect the throttle response. Changing the automatic gearbox settings on a manual shifted car is a known trick to make the car feel a little more powerfull.

Can you, please tell me more about "hanging the automatic gearbox settings on a manual shifted car is a known trick to make the car feel a little more powerfull.

I fallowed the tutorial from the first page. Than I saw that there are double switcher on the market.

I received the second diagnosis and it is working :D 

I manage to add the switchers and I now I have Eco Mode, DDS, Radio and Auto-locking.

I will put some photos to see that the interior is completely different to the the one from the tutorial: the leds are smd and the pins are in another order.

I activated also the double locking, but is not working!
