      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. Mk3.5 Cruise Control Fitting

    Folks, I have a UK spec Focus mk3.5 (April 2016) 1.0 ecoboost. I bought a second hand steering wheel with the cc buttons and then followed the fitting cruise to a mk3 instructions. Only thing I didn't do was to update the IPC (as the Focccus 0.8.6 software didn't allow it and info above suggests that it's desirable but not necessary). All worked fine and was very straight forward. The pictures of the airbag release mechanism above even made that bit simple. All the cruise and limiter buttons work and dash lights too. So, it can definitely be done, but perhaps there's a nuance with the model types or the steering wheels? I was careful to buy a steering wheel from a 1.0 ecoboost just on the off-chance. Happy to supply further info if it would help. Thanks to previous posters for all their info and sage advice. Al.
