This stream auto-updates     

  1. Today
  2. I would love to be able to download the maps from the pc. I don’t get an option any more. only shows the sync update saying complete now. Map update part has completely vanished all together.
  3. So we've just purchased a new AWD 2020 EcoSport which is a perfect fit except for the seemingly poor gas mileage. Right now it registers about 14 MPG...I just filled it up and the range is about 182 miles. Since I see lots of people saying they enjoy between 24-39 MPG I'm wondering what could be wrong? Any thoughts? Thanks
  4. I downloaded and installed the Sync 3.4 update this afternoon, went back on to my computer, uploaded the update confirmation file and the then the maps were there ready for download straight away - one word of warning - if you're planning on downloading the maps through your car's auto-update feature, you could be there for a while - the map files clock in at 22Gb which is going to take an awfully long time!

    Thanks v much for the replies, everyone. Such a witty lot!
  7. So ive cut the backbox off of a st180 and cut my 1.0 backbox off and clamped it on with some exhaust paste. Will it be secure and is this okay to do or?
  8. Sorry to jump in, I'm trying to hard wire my dashcam into my mk4 focus estate, but I can't find a suitable ground in the passenger footwell. What did you use?
  9. I’ve done the update about 4 hours ago, updated ford with the XML file. Now when I search the vin number in Sync, it’s says up to date, but doesn’t even attempt to show a map update, however the car is downloading an update. But it was taking for ever. will check again in the morning now.
  10. I took out all the cables and everything seems in order.
  11. Same for me - just getting the software up to date message. Doesn't even check for map updates. Seems strange that some people are getting the F9 update straight after updating to 3.4 and many others are not.
  12. I've got ambient footwell lights from Autobeam that I want to hardwire into the interior lights so that they come on when the car is unlocked or doors are opened. Should this be easy to do? I've tried taking off the trim at the front passenger side but not sure which wires are for interior lights. Has anyone else tried this or something similar with footwell lights for the mk4?
  13. Many thanks guys for helping me out 👍
  14. Still no map updates and I confirmed sync update 2 days ago. Ffs. Sent from my SM-G965F using Tapatalk
  15. Not sure I’m going to take into ford to have a look but thanks
  16. I’ve got exactly this issue I will look at my injector batch code tomorrow are you able to send me the whole ford release for this issue ?
  17. Yes and probably no as it is a wear and tear part but if it has split due to a manufacturing defect, the dealer my call on Ford's goodwill. Just play nicely with him because you will need his goodwill as well!
  18. With these things I tend to just agree with all the questions, but I’m not sure about these? Enable all?
  19. I think that is the warning for fixed speed cameras that is embedded in the maps so probably nothing to do with FordPass. It was there in sync 3.3 as well.
  20. The engine needs more air to idle. Is there a load of gunge in the throttle body that is blocking the small amount of required air when it is closed?
  21. The coolant is boiling but the components are all checked by substitution. It gets worse under load but otherwise works ok. The coolant can be heard bubbling when the engine is stopped. RADIATOR CAP!
  22. Hi new member first post I've purchase a Ford ka 1.2 zetec 2012 60k mileage The car starts and drives perfectly fine but I've noticed on idling ie when at traffic Lights the car ticks over very erratically. So I had it serviced Bosch plugs leads coil pack to no avail, So I sent it back again and had all new Injectors fitted and also swapped the throttle body also to no avail, I'm at the point now of not knowing what's directing to go . I'm told it could be a ECU fault It's really difficult because the car drives perfect , Also to mention the stop start as never worked since I owned it , it just shows the unavailable message at the point where it would normally kick in. Not sure if it linked to the stuttering idle or not. I don't no what direction to go next and neither does the garage I use. Any help would be greatly appreciated Thanks

  24. you learn something new ever day👍
  25. I know I am very late to this conversation but I have only just bought a Ford S Max. I was wondering why my friends 2012 S Max had the dimming DRL's and I didn't so I had a quick nose about. What I found is the feed wire from the sidelight circuit is missing on the early model with the DRL's. Basically if you unplug the wireing plug from the rear of your DRL's you will notice that the third wire point is blocked off with a white plastic pin. Remove this pin, source a small female connector the same as the factory connectors (similar to this item https://www.digikey.co.uk/product-detail/en/te-connectivity-amp/968221-1/A126107CT-ND/7320190), fit this into the factory wireing plug with enough 20G wire on it to reach the sidelight wireing loom and connect the loose end of the wire to the positive of your sidelights. Hey presto! When you turn your sidelights on your DRL's stay on but dim down by 50%. Hope this helps somebody out.
  26. Thanks all, I'm glad of the help. I have found a link that pulls down all the files for the map upgrade in one chunk (Map_25013789187_Update.zip) and am putting that onto an EXFAT USB drive. It looks comprehensive and should hopefully load to the drive and if it does I'll try it on Tuesday as I have a warranty issue to wrangle with tomorrow after work. What looks like a viable set of files is on the drive. Work is only three minutes' drive from home. I wouldn't but I've got a new car to show off!
  27. I had a similar problem with my 2015 ford focus tried factory reset, master reset turning off the phone rebooting the phone nothing seemed to work .i pulled the fuse from the board under the passenger foot well reinstalled after 10/20 sec working fine now :) hope this helps :)
