  1. And possibly different wiring loom on the full car. Different being a few unused connectors or ones that are taped up and possibly different BCM layout or something, Wouldn’t surprise me :) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  2. Guessing different version of BCM Or something? There’s that setting in forscan to allow constant 12v to headlights which helps when doing an led retrofit or projector retrofit... wonder if it’s something to do with that? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  3. Yes it’s possible, quite easy in fact. Quite a lot of us have replaced the steering wheel on the mk3 pre face lifts in order to have cruise control so we can activate it on a car that didn’t come with it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  4. Just file the plastic to remove the stoppers around the button and then this allows it to click in and out when pushed. I was missing the pin mentioned in that thread so I simply soldered a piece of wire directly to the PCB in place of the pin then routed it through the back of the plastic housing. Worked an absolute treat. If you want, you could solder a pin to the PCB which is really easy but i couldn’t find any laying about. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  5. Yup, just an extra wire but didn’t have any more wire laying about. On the PCB behind the blank buttons there’s already led’s on there so I just need to sort a wire out to link between that and the front panel connector :) so surprised that it’s an actual button and simply filing a bit of plastic off gets it working!

  6. Just attempted the above and it worked flawlessly, I now have a factory/oem looking central locking button where the blank is next to ESC OFF. Absolutely made up! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  7. Not sure if I’m allowed to link to other forums but, this is a brilliant idea and this is exactly what I plan on doing. https://www.focusst.org/threads/how-to-make-a-blank-button-a-real-button-plenty-of-pics-and-a-video.46101/ Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  8. Brilliant! I couldn’t get away with putting a button there, it’s my designated ecig holder lol! It literally fits perfectly and doesn’t rattle around! I’m going to keep my eyes out and do some searching for something that could go flush next to the traction control button as I have a blank space. Or, I may just convert the blank in to an actual button somehow :) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  9. That looks really slick, good job! I really like it :) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  10. Wheyyy nice one! Where did you manage to source the sync 3 from and how much did you pay? I’m currently on the look out for sync 3 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  11. Will do, will let you know the outcome. I’ll also see if I can flash my door module with the facelift firmware. To see if it changes anything. Good look and safe journey mate, my uncle is currently on the rigs in the North Sea and was saying some of the waves are ridiculous and are easily hitting his cabin on the top of the rig!

  12. Apologies on the delay, I’ve heard the door card off and my door module unplugged so I could map the pins etc. It looks like I’ll bite the bullet and run some cable from the headunit to the door card some how. First, I’m going to have a good search for an unused connector or loom that may be hidden in the door card or somewhere near there so I could tap in to it. Hopefully that will be tomorrow! Work commitments are mental at the moment so barely any time to tinker! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  13. I use the cigarette lighter fuse for my dash cam because of the 15 minute power thing. Worth noting! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  14. I don’t think there is... I remember looking at the back off mine and there are massive block connectors with hundreds of little wires going in to the back. I only know this as I had to reset my BCM due to an indicator flashing issue Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  15. I believe the BCM is actually the fuse box located under the passenger glove box. It looks like a fuse box but on the behind is all the circuit boards etc. If you look on eBay for body control module it is literally a fuse box Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
