  3. Hi guys so I've been trying this on and off for the last year, so I've got the steering wheel with the curse control, it works if you test the buttons with the beep, my car is a mk2.5 1.6 auto i have a good elm cable and am using uptodate software i can activate in the gem but when I go to the pcm it comes up with this error what am I doing wrong
  4. Oldlen just to let you know I have a working cable in Bristol if anyone wants to use it. I have a 1.6 auto (mk2.5) I've put a cmax steering wheel with cruse control on and all wired up beeping so I know the buttons work. Never got cc working I think I'm unlucky with my pcm is the wrong fuse box never had it working I have even went to ford had my fuse box updated and tryed then no
  5. Okay so right, about 6 months ago a friend of mine did rear shoes on my car as they made a noise, brakes worked perfectly but the handbrake was sloppy, I adjusted it down and it went down a long way. SO NOW Today i got round to looking at the problem whats wrong? I took off the drum there was a lot of dust, everything looked correct no springs off etc all as it should be. so i clean the dust up and i Put the Adjusters about 95% in back to the start so the thread wasn't showing i get in the car thinking id have to slacken the hand brake, and i pump the brakes, the handbrake cable is way to long or i messed something up. if i tighten the cable, its a long way im guessing 2/3 cm down and it either is tight as hell or dose not work AM i missing something or has the cable stretched? is there a way to tighten this up? or should i take it apart again and do something different, the adjustment isn't like whats on line turoral its this one http://www.fordpartsuk.com/images_orig/1522225/1.jpg MY car is a 2008 2.5 with 36k on it, i had the rear shoes done because one of the pads came off the metal inside
