  1. If this is a sync 2 retrofit, with the media hub, you only really require 2 wires from the hub to the apim and that just power + and -. The other wires are used for line in (head phone) jack. So if you’re not bothered about that, 2 wires for power to the hub work fine. That’s what I’ve done. Make sure the mini USB cables is seated firmly in the back of the sync 2 unit and also swap the other end to the other mini USB port on the hub. Initially I thought mine was broke until I swapped ports on the hub itself. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  2. Haha, yeah it’s one of those things that didn’t bother me until it’s started to get dark earlier. And yeah, toggled that’s under settings I’ve come from sync 1 Sony model to sync 2. Rear sensors only. They beep and all that jaz and they are 100% factory fitted. Never had them display a visual on my sync 1, does that make a difference? Sorry for the delays, family life takes over and I have very little time to tinker with my car :) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  3. Gave it a go, didn’t change anything unfortunately! I’m at a loose end! It did how ever fix the auto dimming function on the sync 2 unit, now I don’t get blinded from the headunit at night :) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  4. Legend, thanks mate! I’ll give it a go in the morning :) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  5. Just a thought, there’s loads to choose from... have I changed it to the wrong value fo you reckon? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  6. @tommo17 made that change, didn’t work unfortunately. Just as an FYI mines a sync 2? I know half of the sync 3 changes work on the sync 2 unit but I’m just double checking Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  7. Ok, just jogged my my memory. You need to run the cables 4 & 5 from the FCDIM connector and then place 4 in 7 and 5 in 4 on the front panel accessory connector. On the the connector, you’ll notice a blank slot which will take a pin. So as it stands, one cable will need splicing and the other should just pop straight in to the connector. Hope this helps bud! :) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  8. From what I remember, there was a blank slot on my front panel connector. 1 cable with a new pin in to that and then the other I just spliced. Sorry it was a while ago since I did my upgrade and I barely get time to do anymore work on my car :) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  9. Ah nice one, cheers pal! I’ll give it a go tomorrow hopefully :) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  10. Not yet unfortunately, not too sure what to change Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  11. Sounds like you’ve not added the two wires from the hvac controls to the front panel connector. Hence why only the Hazards are working. Or the wires are loose. Double check the wires from the HVAC panel to the front Facia panel connector Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  12. Hmm ok, I’ll give that a try. Any guidance to what part of forscan I’d be changing that option? From 3.5 to 3? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  13. Yup, tried the apim settings from a facelift ST with both sync 2 and one with sync 3. Changing the setting does nothing at all for me... that’s why I’m thinking the PAM module in the boot may need a firmware update or something. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  14. Hey, sorry it’s been a while and it may have been mentioned. I can’t seem to get the visual rear parking display on sync 2 to show, I’ve changed the settings in forscan as per the guide and done a hell of a lot of googling... no joy. I double checked and the rear sensors are factory fitted. I’m came from a SonySync system. Mine a Focus ST-2 pre-facelift 2014. Anyone else have similar issues? Still beeps and all that jazz when in reverse, just can’t seem to get a visual display up. Is it a case of my PAM module may need updating or something? Just a thought.

  15. Hi all, I’ve got a pre facelift focus st-2 mk3 and I’ve recently upgraded to a Sync 2 head unit system. Unfortunately I’ve lost the central locking button as on the pre-facelift sync 1 unit the central locking button was on the Facia. With sync 2, there is no central locking button on the Facia and this is usually located on the drivers side door handle. This allows you to unlock and lock all doors. I realise I could simply wire a button to the front panel connector in order to regain this function but I want this integration to be as OEM as possible. My question is, is it simply a matter of getting the facelift door cards and swapping them over in to my pre facelift? Possibly needing new door card modules and looms depending on how many pins are populated on the door card connector? I mean, worst case scenario I could possibly run two wires from the front panel connector in to the door card and sort of bodge it Any advice or insight would be much appreciated.
