Hi both. I will try and get back to you soon, just been busy.

Hi,i just ended BVC to Sync 3 upgrade ,radio panel control buttons,navigation and bluetooth work fine since the ignition is off as i turn the car on ther’s no sound coming from  speakers but i’am stuck with programming so i can’t access to APIM or ACM to configurate them,the issue is that when i plug my modified obd2 the only module i can configurate is IPC with ms/hs can triggered no way to have more modules.
Help please.

Hi all,so after erasing vehicle profile on Forscan I have much more modules to configurate but still no APIM, i’am wondering if should not i first replace the BTC module by the APIM in the BCM ?

Hi and sorry for delay,you probably resolved the issue since if not can you please tell us what is your issue exactly?

if you can’t find the apim on Forscan than double check the HS can wires and erase old profiles before scanning your car.

if you sound issues like me i just removed the permanent +12 from the main acm connector(pin 3).

Hi, I know I’m a few months late but if I may ask what was the cost of doing this? I’m keen to do something like this to my 2014 Kuga titanium, unfortunately we only got the touch screen on the 2015

I have ordered the Sync 3 hardware for me to do this myself, however I think I'll be getting the services of an auto electrician to do the wiring parts for me as I don't want to mess anything up! I assume all my heated seats and ambient lights (multi colour versions) etc will remain working?

Hi,it costs me almost 550€ (320€ apim+screen and 230€ the rest).

I still have some components(fascia,gps antenna,wires) if interested pm me please

and feel welcome for any question.

Hi I'm not thinking of bothering upgrading (got Sync 1.1 with 5" non-touchscreen and happy with it), but why is it necessary to replace the USB / line in sockets in the armrest with a USB on its own in this process?  Is it a better kind of USB socket?

The new USB allows the Sync 3 system to connect to the phone in order to use Apple CarPlay or Android Auto.

I did enquire about this a while back and they said the harnesses are for cars with auto climate, but if you wanted one with manual climate they would have to modify the harness which obviously cost more.

I have auto climate, mines a MY13 Titanium with city pack. Iv been quoted around £65ish from a auto spark but think if I just get the harness after conversion it works out about the same money and it's a simple swap back without messing with the cables.

Could you use this or are they specific to USA models;

Won't be spending that much, they selling for $100 odd on alibaba and aliexpress but probably a 2week wait.

I wish I book marked it now but seems that price changed from dollars to pounds and its £90 odd here's another I found https://h5.aliexpress.com/item/4001020283232.html?spm=a2g0n.seo-amp-detail.moreToLove.4001020283232

I am going to order this purely because I don't fancy splicing the cables and it will be easier to swap back if I sell the car. 

Also bought reverse camera from amazon with boot handle and looks like a direct replacement. 

 

Looks harder than I thought to order all the stock doesn't seem to ship to UK 

NOTE: This item is not available, because the seller doesn't provide delivery to the shipping address you selected.
