  1. You want one of these : Ford Focus MK3 N/S Front Door Edge Guard Shield Protector 1879783 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Genuine-Ford-Focus-MK3-N-S-Front-Door-Edge-Guard-Shield-Protector-1879783/272379267923?hash=item3f6b11cb53:g:mH8AAOSwGmZb4rtC It just clips into place, 10 second job.
  2. Do you have a trailer control module? If so, then a failure or bad connection to this will cause the "PARKING PILOT MALFUNCTION SERVICE NOW" message. The car will shut down the rear sensors when a trailer is present. In order to find that out it sends a message on the CAN bus to ask the trailor module if one is present. A faulty trailer module will not reply - after around 10 seconds the above message appears.
  3. The bluetooth module is also prone to crashing/locking up. There are threads on here and elsewhere with possible recovery methods. Basically the bluetooth module needs to be powered down to reset.
  4. Try unzipping to temporary directory on drive C rather than direct to the memory stick. Then copy the files across.
  5. I found on my previous car that I only needed to use excessive force in the lock once. After that the key would work fine when the car is deadlocked.
  6. My 2015 focus has the foam insert because there is an absolutely massive radio speaker sitting on top of the spare wheel.
  7. I also have a set of led dynamic turn indicators in the door mirrors. It does seem to be rather hit-and-miss whether you get a good set or not. The reviews on Amazon are very varied. Mine work perfectly & I really like them. I fitted them with the hazard lights switched on so that I could tell that they were plugged in correctly - if you push the connector in too far they don't work. Afterwards there was a fault code stored - door indicator failure - which I cleared. The ones that I bought are the white ones here: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07TQ3F195/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o07_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 (Looks like the seller no longer does the white ones, the link above redirects to the black colour) The video in the reviews is mine.

  8. While you've got the key apart, it's worth ensuring that the battery contacts are clean. Mine displayed the message a couple of weeks after changing the battery.
  9. According to the spec, the lane centering is only available with the automatic gearbox. I have no idea why this should be the case. Would be good if we could work out how to enable it on manual boxes.
  10. Mine has a similar problem. Just last Monday I got an "ACC unavailable" message on the display and the buttons didn't work. It was only when I went round a roundabout on full lock that the buttons started working again. I suspect that there is a loose connection somewhere. The cruise control will disengage if the CAN bus loses contact with the buttons.
  11. It does on Sync 2 - it gives the little icons plus the yellow/red/stripy roads for delay/bad delay/closed.
  12. My Sync 2 uses the TMC via the RDS - it's adequate for my needs. Can the Sync 3 use TMC if the connection to Live Traffic isn't available?
  13. I've done that twice now. Only realised that I'd done it when the boot auto reopened. Keyless you see, the car knows that the key is locked in the boot and re opens.
  14. Just find the station that you want using the 'browse' or 'search' or whatever it's called on your unit then just save the station to a preset in the usual way. The DAB units in cars have no concept of area, London or otherwise, as it'd be pretty useless when driving!
