Hi just in the process of buying a Focus tititanium x that's had front end damage the lights have been replaced from Xeon to regular lights but a warning comes up on the dash when you start the car does any one know if there is a way to turn the warning off thanks

I would assume the fault is because it can't communicate with the bi-xenon lights.

You'll need to change the car's central config so it knows that standard lights are fitted and hopefully it will stop looking for them and throwing an error.

On a 2012 Focus, you should be able to use Focccus with a modified ELM327 cable.

I will say that these cars are quite complicated, it doesn't have a central computer anymore, but a complex network, so even changing the option to normal lights might still throw up errors.

If the car already had them then not really, easier than fitting to a car which never had them.

Looms, software, configs should already be in place. You just need to replace the hardware.

You'll need the bumper with cut outs for the washers too.

Put it on my zetec, 5 mins configuring, job done. Used foccuus software to enable autolights/rainsensing after fitting a sensor and light switch, cruise control, sat nav, etc. So ive found it usefull

From what I remember I had to change from my small display to sat nav display in the foccuus configuation, there is a guide on here somewhere by jw1982, do a search and you should find all about it.
