      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  2. Sync 3

    New OEM Module and screen and hub, from my source in Russia, car parts are cheaper there.......450. If you were to invest in software and interfaces ( which i have ) about 3 K. R.
  3. Sync 3

    Change screen and apim as a pair.....done it. New media hub is needed also, cut and splice 3 wires. Thats it.
  4. Sync 3

    Sync 2 can be swapped out for Sync 3. Bit of configuration and done. Provided you have the programming gear of course :)
  5. Navigation

  6. Try running the unlock again....
  7. Should work without cluster change. Did you put some music on another sd and see if it is seen......just in case there's a wiring issue ? Dodgy or faulty card usually gives a faulty sd card warning on screen.
  8. Can do it via Teamviewer for you if you need......up to you. R.
  9. Done lots the licence way ( €80 via PayPal )....homemade SD works perfectly. It MUST be a class 10 or higher SD card or it won't work. Irony is that most of them I have done were for a local Ford dealer :) For them I use genuine cards. R.
  10. This one is fine..... http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/162233268021 The patch circumvents the need for a licence file. I' ve done 1 this way and it works. If you want to get the proper licence file go to .....chip ford.russia http://chipford.ru/aktivaciya-navigacii-ford-sync.html R.
  11. Easy to do . Put the navipatch file on a blank USB. Insert and run the unlock. Using Forscan with extended licence and Elm cable just edit the APIM configuration to turn nav on. Restart sync. Buy or make your own F5 nav sd card. Done. There's another way which involves buying a licence file and installing. Forscan part has to be done either way. R
  12. Looky here......:) https://www.drive2.ru/l/10018006/
  13. how can i add sat nav to my focus as you stated it can be done i have one on a 66 plate titanium

    Many thanks

  14. Hello Ritchie, I've just bought a Focus Titanium and didn't twig it didn't have sat have and the wife isn't best pleased! I would be really grateful if you could tell me how I could get it put on to the sync 2 system, however I am really not very technical? Also would it invalid the remaining warranty if dealer finds out? Help!

      Send you some info in a bit....driving at the moment.

  15. Ford Focus Mk2 auto headlights/window wipers

    Just buy the factory loom and pull it through (50 quid ish ).....did it a couple of years back on a 2008 focus. Check first if the BCM has the pin outs to support auto lights and wipers ......mine didn't i recall so i had to change it also. Made a back up of the original configuration with ELMconfig program, fitted loom, auto light switch and rain /light sensor , then wrote original config to new BCM and then modified it to include rain sensor and auto lights. Worked perfectly.
