  1. My stock 14 st250 has a really rough idle. It’s like it’s about to stall but it never does. Did a bit of research and apparently it’s a common issue on this model. The US market have had recalls done on the engine bay wiring harness for this issue but there’s nothing in the UK regarding this. As long as you have power through all the gears and no misfires I wouldn’t worry. I’ve had it for the past year or so and haven’t had anything come of it. No codes show up either on forscan :) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  2. Thank god for that! Phewww! Made up for you! Nothing worse when something like that happens! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  3. I take it forscan doesn’t pick up the car either? If it does, do a module reset... that may help? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  4. Can’t remember of top of my head, google is your best best! Good luck! I’m pretty sure you click read to view your car configuration and then you literally click either save or export... can’t remember it’s been a while! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  5. Yeah I’d splice and solder then. Hated the scotch locks and caused me so many issues, especially with the front buttons! Once you’ve done that, your front buttons will be working :) I’m not too sure about the acm plug wires missing on both connectors though... all I can suggest is once plugged in and working, give it a go and see if it works. The kuga connectors may be slightly pinned different compared to my mk3 ST. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  6. What version of sync did you come from? As for the front panel buttons, you need to run 2 wires from the FCDIM connector to the button panel connector. The exact pins are in the pdf on the first page. Once this done, all the buttons on the front panel will work fine. Again, all depends on which version of sync you have come from. As for the ACM main plug to the accessories plug... if yours is a facelift model then the wires have probably already been swapped so you won’t have to do anything.

  7. My 14 plate ST idles quite rough and it seems to be a common thing on the pre face lift ST’s. oh and as the guy above said, check coolant too! Apart from that, the engine is pretty much bullet proof as you said :) have fun mate and enjoy, cracking little motor! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  8. Curious too, maybe a battery sensor or something? My first thought was the air intake sensor or what ever it’s called. God knows! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  9. Nope nothing at all, on mine the the H7 dipped beams accepted the led bulbs without any issues and I don’t have any bulb out errors on the dash at all. I have the following installed as we speak and they are amazing! They are literally plug and play and the build quality is good. Like I said, running them for a year now with no issues at all. Car Rover H7 LED Bulbs 10800LM High Beam or Fog Lights for Car, Replacement Kit for Halogen Xenon Lights 12V-24V Lamp 6000K White https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B078XQY3X7/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_fj4VCbGBYSZKX Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  10. I’m currently using them in my mk3 ST and the adapters hold the led bulbs in fine. Just make sure you buy the right adaptor :) I’ve had them in for a year and passed MOT with no issues. Beam pattern is spot on. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  11. I saw this!!! Crafty or what! Couldn’t believe it hahahaha. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  12. Okay, cool! I was tempted to run two wires all the way across through the door loom to possibly just the insert with the door lock buttons but that seems a massive faff. Which button did you go for out of curiosity? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  13. Good shout. Another question... sorry for all the questions lol regarding the central locking button, is it possible to fit this back in like the facelift door panels as this is on the drivers side? Or, is there an oem style button which I could mount somewhere and obviously wire to the front panel connector? I don’t fancy having them cheap looking buttons and I’d preferably like to style it similar to maybe the traction control button or maybe something on the front headunit button panel... any ideas at all?

  14. Just a thought... is there anyway to get your speed on the ipc or even the different trips? I literally have the basic stuff like fuel until empty, mileage, instant fuel and mpg. Any ideas? :) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
