      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.

  1. Radio upgrade

    Almost on the same topic, Does anyone have the latest firmware for a 2010 "standard" radio. I changed from a iPhone 5 to an iPhone 8 and it intermittently drops off, I'm guessing my firmware dates to 2014. I have BT and USB and I've updated it in the past,but the ford site where th4e files were hosted looks to be gone. Even if someone know the date it was last updated that may help. Local dealer says they can only check what version is on the radio by getting the car in and plugging it into the diag computer and its an hours labour. Only then can they tell me if there is an update and even if there is no update I get charged regardless. I sorta done mind paying for them to do the update, but the fact they cant even tell me if there is one available is annoying...
  2. Disable Esp On 5Dr Zetec 1.6 Tdci

    Hi Your national Vietnam Ford web site may have a area where you can enter the make model and VIN to get a user manual for your car. I know the Uk and US ones have them so I assume it's all country level Ford sites

    Sorry your really getting beyond my knowledge of the wiring looms to know what may have to be added, changed or rewired... Good Luck...
  4. Disable Esp On 5Dr Zetec 1.6 Tdci

    Yours looks to be a 7.5 (ie Mk 7 facelift). I can' t see any parking sensors at the front, you should see 4 x 2cm circular sensors if they are fitted, two in the lower grill, two embedded in the bumper. The cable may not be connencted as the hardware is not in place.
  5. Disable Esp On 5Dr Zetec 1.6 Tdci

    My car is a 2010 Econetic Fiesta, (Mk7 pre facelift) and I think all the fiestas in the range other than the Zetec S, have no way to disable the ESP via the stalk or the radio's menu option. Unlike the Focus there simply is not a menu option to disable it. The ESP disable button was a "feature" on the Zetec S model. The only way to disable ESP on any other model (even the higher grade Titanium's) it is to buy, fit and use this switch *if* the wiring is there. Most people on this thread have found the wiring is there, and fitting the ESP disable switch seems to work for them.
  6. Disable Esp On 5Dr Zetec 1.6 Tdci

    Sorry I've no idea. The ESP disable was wired in most Ford Fiestas, (certainly everyone who has tried I think has found it wired) and just tells the computer to disable the ESP, thats the same in every car. The Parking sensors were an option at build time, There may be wiring in place but without the rest of the hardware it may not work. The hardware might be there, some cars had some of the cruise control and folding wing mirror wiring and hardware in place despite it not being an option, however not every car did. You'd need to try and locate the sensors and the box that beeps before you start altering the loom, however its getting beyond my level of competence playing with the wiring.. Good Luck in your search... ,

    You can't buy the switch seen above, Ford do not supply it as an option. The option s Ford do are ESP switch Passenger airbag ESP + passenger airbag Parking sensors Passenger airbag + parking sensors Coin holder The only way to get the switch above it to modify two switches to make one, as in the guide I created. NOTE: Unlike the ESP wires that are on most cars wiring loom, Front / rear parking sensors are NOT installed as standard, adding the switch alone will not give you parking sensors if they were not fitted to your car at build time.

    I did for the annual service and was next to a mustang. Unfortunately it was the week before the challenge. 😞
  9. Econetic 1.6 Diesel Recall

    Got mine this morning, however Gates said it was not all parts that were affected, apparently a quick process, they offered to check while I waited so can't be a big job...
  10. Econetic 1.6 Diesel Recall

    Dragging back an old topic... There is a recall on the parts replaced in in the Recall, if you had your car in under this Earlier recall they need to check the actual unit they used really was the waterproof version,,, Apparently most dealers will have the parts in already...
  11. Dash Cams

    Way I see it is if something happened and I need to show the footage I don't want a el Cheapo special that's hard to make out anything, most cams are fine in the day its night that's the issue. Mobius are about £50 it may be a false economy to go cheaper....
  12. Dash Cams

    I'd also suggest nextbase, I ummed and ahh's and then as Halfords were doing the 402 for just under £120 at Xmas in the sale I bought one of those. I considered Mobius but the nextbase has GPS so went with that, however they are not particularly stealthy looking, I covered the front of mine in black vinyl as the logos on it are a bit blinking obvious...
  13. Quick Clear Power Connectors

    Can anyone post a FINIS screenshot as that may have rough connector locations on it?
  14. Quick Clear Power Connectors

    Does it earth out by the same rout, ie the engine bay, or is the earth at the top (ie the power "flows up" the screen?
  15. Hi Anyone know how the power is routed in/out of the Quick Clear screens? Mines not working on the passenger side, not the fuse, however since I out a dashcam in its now worked. Could be it went last year and I've had no cause to use it., but is there a power or earth feed at the top that I may have damaged / dislodged when I pushed the cable behind the head trim? And if I have how do I get the ceiling trim off to check???? Or if someone can tell me that I can check myself... Ta...
