Hi There!

Hi there, 


Thought I should really join as I've been lurking these forums for a while. 


After months of should I/shouldn't I I finally upgraded my Mk1 Focus to a Mk4 - woah, the difference is quite amazing!  So pleased though that I decided to stick with Ford and I guess it must be in my blood as out of the 6 cars I've owned, 5 have been Fords. Must get a t-shirt! 





Retrofit Keyless Entry

14 August 2013 - 05:30 AM

Hi all,


I've just treated myself to an upgrade from a 10 yr old Mk1 1.9TDCi Focus Ghia to a 1 yr old Mk4 1.6 Titanium X - Woah! Slight difference!!  I have to keep pinching myself that I own this new thing!


I got a cracking deal on the car but one of the things I had to drop of my spec list was keyless entry. Since buying it I'm wishing I hadn't.


Do any of you kind lot know if it is possible to retrofit the true Ford solution for this.  The car knows the keys are present to do the touch start so I'm guessing/hoping there isn't too much kit missing in order to allow it?


The local Ford dealer has suggested it's not but it felt like a stock answer.


Appreciating your help in advance and apologies if it's a common question and I've not managed to find the answer already.
