HELP still unable to add cruise control.

Hi everyone, its me again,

I really need to get to the bottom of this problem im having while trying to add cruise control to my PCM module. I have followed various guides to do this, but on the last write to the PCM, after its finished im getting this error message " There is a non empty VID block in this PCM module. To write a new VID block. PCM module must be reprogrammed first "

My car is a 2010 Focus Zetec S  1.8 duratec petrol

My PCM number is   7M51-12A650-VE

My PCM type is  ESU 411/418( 1.8 125/2.0 145)

My firmware is  7M51VE

I have successfully added cruise to my GEM and my HEC no problem, i have also switched off the seatbelt warning, my stumbling block is the PCM.

I am using a modified ELM cable from Tunnel rat electronics, using chipset, CH340T, im running Elmconfig 0,2,17b running this through a HP laptop running Windows 8,1

I have tried the quick way (just doing the configuration screen) and the longer way (doing the procedures screen as well) this way its taking 78 mins to read the pcm to bin file. Both ways im having the same error message, i have noticed from one guide posted by OldLen on 16th January in the topic." Guide for Focus Mk2/mk2,5 c-max/kuga~Elm 327 cable and Ff2 program" in his guide he said he made a mistake on the PCM programming,he said the first time he did it he didnt click the "Read calibration data only" box. Now i have seen this box on page 2 of the procedures tab, but for some unknown reason its not highlighted, ive also noticed that 0.2.10 version of elmconfig has options to, Read VID block from PCM, Read firmware from PCM to file, Load VID block to file and Load firmware from file These options are on page 2 of procedures.

I havnt done anything with version 0.2.10 in case it was out of date or something.

I have got two DTC codes after reading the PCM information using 0.2.17b saying:- 

P1260, 63

P1549,63

If someone can give me some instructions to get past this last obstacle i would be eternally grateful. sorry for the long winded post, but i needed to give as much info as possible. If all else fails can i get this done through Fords using their IDS system.

Thanks for your patience guys, Chris (Wilto)

pm you

Hi Dez, followed your guide to the letter, I've now got a tick in all three modules, already had CC ticked in GEM and HEC, and now thanks to you have also got CC ticked in PCM. But guess what... Still not working, I've tried the on and + but nothing, I've pm Dan p because he has the same radio CC stalk I have, to ask him if the + button beeps on the heated window trick, because mine doesn't. I get a beep on the ON, OFF and RES but nothing in the + and - 

Thanks for your help so far anyway, much appreciated mate.

I'll keep you updated, Chris.

I notice yours is a petrol 1.8 or 2.0. I know it's pretty easy on diesels to add cruise control as it has a fly by wire throttle pedal but the petrol may still be a cable to a throttle body unless anyone knows differently. That may be the reason it does not work. But as I say I could be wrong don't know too much about the petrol versions.
