    Mk8 Forscan chat

    Not the same car, but on my Jaguar, mirror dip on reverse required seat memory pack. Would be great if that works without it as I miss it! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I would like the rear lights on as well. My Jag does it with just the front DRLs on the rear lights are on and it’s much better. I think someone mentioned it was a Scandinavian setting. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Fiesta MK8 upgrades

    So I’m guessing what I said above didn’t work? Shame. Try the Facebook groups. There is a guy on there that works in Ford parts department. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Fiesta MK8 upgrades

    A good way to test it is to try changing the temp when the interior is cold. Set the temp to a low setting at first, then turn it up and see if the speed changes. Then once the car is warm inside adjust the temp again so its colder and see if the aircon kicks in. I'm really interested to see if that works.

    Programming I’m of course, expecting. Wiring seems to be in place and not sure about the brake switch (the mk7 didn’t need this). Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Mk8 airbag removal

    Does anyone know how the airbag is removed from the steering wheel? It looks totally different to the Mk7 as there are no holes in the side of the wheel. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    OK so I have just bought a new steering wheel from eBay that has the correct cruise control buttons. So I guess all I need is a friendly dealer to code them or someone with Forscan?
  12. Did you ever get this sorted? Did the dealer help? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Haven't been able to find that post with the person who had missing cruise.

    Hi Martijn, This is what I thought, I provided the dealer with all the information but they seemed reluctant to help me. I own a Jaguar as well and their dealers are much the same, they have the right tools to retrofit options but don't want to do it. Do you know the name of the official software Ford uses? Jaguar call is SDD and I didn't realise Forscan was a third party program. I came across the website for that company in the Netherlands who offers that service, it's a shame they are not closer. I haven't found a company in the UK that does yet. I'll have a look for that topic, thank you! It may be useful. I do indeed love the LED lights and I'm glad I chose them.

    Hi everyone, I've recently picked up a brand new Fiesta Sport Van and I mistakenly didn't add a few options I would like. I thought the car came with standard cruise control (as it has the speed limiter) and the active cruise control was an option (that I didn't want) but turns out it doesn't come with cruise control at all. I believe I need either a steering wheel with the buttons or just the buttons by themselves? I approached the dealer to see if they could supply and fit but they said they couldn't do it. They gave my details to an auto electrician who said they don't use Forscan as it's black market software and don't recommend using it so he recommended some crappy third party CC stalk. I've also like to add the reversing camera and/or sensors. I thought with the Fiesta being so small I wouldn't need them but rear visibility is pretty poor so I think they are useful.
