In Topic: AUX on Focus '57

I fitted this kit (1426121) to my 06 Focus and it works fine.
You will need a set of 4 removal tools for the head unit (approx 5 off ebay), a set of Torx keys to remove the glovebox, a 20mm hole cutter or drill to make the hole in the glovebox for the jack socket and the 4 digit code for the head unit if you have to disconnect it. You will also need an audio lead to connect your ipod or mp3 player to the new socket.

Everything else you need is in the kit, even cable ties to secure the new cable to the loom.

The job should take under an hour.

Note: Don't try getting the head unit out with anything other than the correct removal tools as you'll just get frustrated and probably scratch the fascia.

Good luck.

Mine's an 06 1.6 Zetec petrol and there is an audible warning (intermittent beep) for side or headlights on. Mine works when driver door is opened with key in 'off' position

Seem to have my misfire problem sorted but noticed that even when ECU had logged the coil fault there was no DTC code listed when I did the dash computer diagnostic check.

Do DTC codes have anything to do with ECU error codes?

glad you found the problem, but i would get it sorted as soon as you can before you end up needing to replace the cat too. unburnt petrol going into the cat causes it to fail

Was worried about the possibility of damage to cat so had the coil pack replaced today, thankfully not as expensive as I feared. Found a good local garage which didn't charge for the diagnostic check, just for parts and labour, though I think I could have replaced the coil myself.

Finally got to the point this week where the engine warning light came on for a trip to work and back. Misfire got worse during these two journeys.
Next day the light didn't come on and the car behved normally, however I have had the codes checked today and the fault logged points to a faulty coil pack.
Plan to get this replaced early next week.
