  1. Ok....not getting any response. Lets try another tack.... Is there anything that stops the heater rear screen coming on? Maybe a humidity sensor or outside temperature? Also, I have used Forscan and Focccus software, so could I have somehow turned it off? Should of said at the start, its a Mk3 focus edge estate 2013. I've updated to sync 2.
  2. Morning all. I am 99.9% through updating my mk 3 focus heater controls to the facelift controls. I wanted to change them after fitting the sync 2 and I picked up a facelift centre console. As I said I'm 99.9% there and when I'm happy with it I would like to submit a guide. I've studied the wiring diagram for both cars (although both of them do not match what I have) for hours and after lots of trial and error, everything is working apart from the heater rear screen. On the older unit there was only 4 wires in the terminal (it was a separate switch). Brown = illumination, Black = earth, Brown/Green = HRS light and Green/Orange which I can think is the switch. I think, after reading the forums, that it works on resistance rather than a live in and live out. On the new unit I am using pin 14 Green/Orange and 15 Brown Green on the Blue bottom plug. But can't seem to get it to come on. Swapped the wires, tried 12 and 13, checked the fuse but nothing seems to work. To make matters worse, I think I read somewhere that the engine has to be running for it to come on. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
  3. Sorry to jump in on an old thread, but is there a way to identify (easily) if the floor loom is the right one. I have a 2013 Focus Estate and would like the back windows to be electric.
  4. I'm definitely getting there mate. Can't seem to get my Mic working. However, I'm waiting for the sync button for the steering wheel to arrive and I'm hoping it's linked. I can then test the voice commands. I need to get the F8 nav card as well as I'm on F4 at the mo and it's not great. Sync 3 hey? I'll have to save my pennys for that upgrade!!
  5. Unfortunately, I'm too old to get the reference!! Had to Google it!!!
  6. Followed the instructions and did a master reset, still no joy. Thanks for the info though.
  7. I have recently upgraded from non Bluetooth to Sync 2 thanks to Luke Anderson's cracking guide. I've managed to get everything else working (in the end) but the Mic cuts out after half a second when answering or calling on the phone. My wife is about to strangle me as the only way to test is to call her. Looking through Forscan and Focccus I can't see a microphone option.
  8. So I downloaded and installed the update from the forum and it seems to have gone onto my sync unit ok. I was hoping it would fix my microphone issue (mic not working) but it has not.
  9. I have found an update on this forum "update sync 2 the easy way". Do you think I should give it a go? I'm not sure where the sync unit picked up my vin anyway. I could ask the eBay seller that sold me the sync unit for the reg of the vehicle it came from.
  10. Hi Clive, it shows my Vin.
  11. Does anyone know how I can get the latest update file for sync 2. I've retrofitted a sync 2 into my 2013 Focus, so if I put my vin into the ford website, it says "your vehicle is not fitted with Sync 2". If I put the vin of a facelift car say on eBay for instance, it says "you are up to date".
  12. Hi Ian. I want to swap my basic heater controls for the facelift one which is on the centre console. Don't know if it's possible to do so wanted to have a look at the diagram for both, to see if I can grab the connections off a scrapper and start soldering.
