  1. here is a simple guide that allows you to fit footwell lamps to a focus Mk1 and Mk1.5 Parts needed: =========== 2x Bulbs (I don't know the type off me head, but they are 12v 5w) 1x Boot lamp lens cover 1x Screwdriver Installation ========= 1. Before you go about sourcing bulbs, take the screwdriver to the drivers side and undo the 6 screws holding up the shelf/diagnostic plug surround. let it flop to the ground once undone. 2. now look at the central wiring loom that smacks you right in the face, you can't miss it. You should see alot of thick dark grey/moondust like cheap foam with some black electrical tape around it at one end. 3. grab it and have a feel, you should be able to feel the bulb holder inside it. carefully tear away the leccy tape and the foam should fall away. 4. on the drivers side, you will have a hole on the diagnostic plug surround plastic the entire plastic itself. a tiny little hole. now slot the bulb holder into that and twist lock it in place. 5. refit the plastic, and pop the bulb into the holder, it should come on. 5. on the passenger side, undo the carpet., pop the square rectangle hole through. again look for the foam, free the bulb holder. 6. pop the bulb holder through the hole, and twist lock it to the one boot lamp plastic lense. 7. pop the bulb into the holder, it should also come on. 8. pop the lense into the hole and refit the carpet. Congrats, you've fitted the footwell lamps. Useage ====== these are independant of the interior light so that switch will do nothing to these. they come on with the door open and turn off when shut. they operate the same way as the interior light on door release mode. Notes ===== if using LED bulbs, the passenger one faces the wrong wayand little light comes out, you need to bend the holder holding the bulbholder. or cut it off and mod the lense so that the bulb is facing down not sideways. Also LED bulbs give off a very low glow when they are supposedly off. its really really low but noticable if you squint in the dark. shouldn't drain the battery but keep an eye on it.

  14. In this how to I will be explaining how to install the ST170 Speedo in a standard Petrol (this is important) focus Mk1. The Speedo is electrically wired for petrol Focus only. Introduction: ---------------- So Wayne Day dangled the golden carrot under my nose, I was like ooh shiny.... take my cash! Why fit these? Theyre different, white/silverish, have a different trim, the fuel gauge reads differently and finally the whole face glows green. What about the oilpod do these work? Yes and no. You can wire it up but only the oilpressure gauge works and it is totally inaccurate. the ice warning sensor works but its a right faf just for one LED.... However, do not throw it away, we will need it still because it has the inverter for the glow faces. Parts Needed ------------------ 1x ST170 speedo 1x ST170 Oilpod Aux Cluster 1x ST170 oilpod plug and short bit of loom 1x ST170 Speedo glow gauge plug (plugs into the top of cluster as a seperate grey plug) 2x Automotive cable reel (5amp should do but I went higher to be safe) in Red and black (you can buy a third reel in blue to help further) 4x splice connectors (I chose blue 15 amp ones) 1x electrical tape reel. 2x strong cableties. Howto -------- We need to prepare the Oilpod to power the glow portion. So take the plug and look for the following wires: OG/YE (Orange/Yellow) - Constant 12V - Main Power YE (Yellow) - Constant 12V - Memory Wire YE/BK (Yellow/Black) - Ground OG/YE (Orange/Yellow) - Switchable 12V - Glow Faces Trigger Wire the first three wires will be found next to each other and the 4th will be on its own. the OG/YE thats next to YE is the 12V Main. So the other is the trigger. Pay special attention to this. locate the 12v Cigar lighter in the front. measure up some cable length from that area to the space under the steering wheel. we need red and black for this. then measure some blue from the same understeering wheel area to the drivers side lightswitch. trim back some of the OILPOD plugs wire. Take the YE and OG/YE that are beside each other and solder both wires to the red you just measured. Do the same for the BK/YE to the black ground. Take the remaining OG/YE and solder to the blue wire. Now look on the oilpod plug, there will be two wires on their own at the end, RED and RED/YE these correspond to the little plug on top of the cluster. take some red and black and measure from under the steering wheel. all the way to where the speedo is. solder wires to the plug and the speedo plug. now to install. remove the plastic cover (with OBD port on it) under the steering wheel. plug up the oilpod, and cable tie it to the long thick bunch of wires. Locate and remove the cigar lighter fuse (it's a 15 amp fuse). Now remove the front radio surround, you will have to remove the radio to take the 4 screws out. the fascia prises off. the red and black wires splice onto the cigar lighter plug. BK/YE is ground here again. so the other must be 12v. the splice connectors are easy. clip it on the wire, feed in the splice wire, then use pliers to pinch down and then lock in place using the lock in tab. now remove the airvent on the drivers side, and the shround around unclips. this exposes the head lightswitch. unscrew and remove. Locate pin 9 OG/BU, locing tab on left, the wire is top right. splice your blue wire onto this one. Nearly there! swapping the speedo. remove the screws for the fascia surrounding the speedo. and unclip, it prises off. undo the boot release switch and take fascia away. now locate the 4 screws holding the speedo in, and remove those. tilt the speedo forward slowly. reach behind and feel the locking tab on the plug. depress and pull the lever to one side and the plug will remove as it pulls up. now find the speedo glow plug and fit that to the ST170 speedo. then plug the speedo main plug back in, aas you push it in the lever swings back and locks into place. loosely fit speedo back in. Replace fuse 15. You should hear the oilpod engage startup ( a Neeeeeer sound is heard) Now put key into position 2. the gauges will sweep and then settle. Start the car. check to see if all Symbols go out, and the correct ones lit when you went into position 2. Crucially the: Brake Airbag EML Fuel Oil (TC/ESP if you have it) ABS need to have been lit then go off. Also rev engine to see if RPM needle goes up. waarm the car up and then check temp gauge and fuel gauge are reading properly. If all is good, then turn on heaadlights. the speedo glows (don't do it in the sun because you can't see it!) if all is good then, turn off the car, and fit everything back. Job done, pat yourself on the back. If you see any of the symbol's not lighting up, then replace the bulb. If your cluster is wildly out on the ODO you will need an auto electrician to reprogram it. Ford will no longer do it. If your ODO is wildly out by being LOWER than you actually are, be prepared to be quizzed about it. When getting it programmed ALWAYS have the correct official mileage documentation to hand.
  15. Progress Thread - Focus Ink 1.6

    restarting my thread. So far I've done very little just: -New battery -New Headunit (well it's old now lol) -Swapped Interior light for Map Readers From Ghia -Activated the footwell lamps with Blue LED's -Swapped bog standard festoon for bright blue LED ones. -Swapped headlamps for Ultra white ones. -Swapped sidelamps to white LED ones -Reverted back to crappy sidebulbs as LED ones kept blowing. Infact I find my bulbs blow quite often. in the space of about 7 months or so. To do: -Swap rear clusters for tinted ones -Fit a sub, not from gumtree -Fix Dent -Give a nice clean / detailing once dent is fixed. -Swap front headlamps out -swap side indicators out -Install some small Engine mods (The 1.6 can't do that much but the small mods will help, things like exhaust, air filter, exhaust manifold, perhaps a remap, performance coil pack) -with that above, give the engine bay a clean, it's rust free at the moment but needs a polish and more colourful bits in there) -Swap lower grille for mesh to match the Ink's main badge grille -Switch all switches and LED's to Blue/red (symbols be blue, and LED's that were green be blue, and those that were orange be red) -Switch map reader bulbs for RED led ones. -Take Centre console out and swap for Connects2 black double din opening. -With double din opening, fit double din headunit. -Swap LED's in cluster and LCD to blue. Then, the following but need advice if worth it -lower car -fit OEM focus rear spoiler Once all that's done, I'd like to try and attend a few meet ups, maybe some local meetups if theres anyone in the area. -

  17. Intro ==== This will give you a computer that allows you to do diagnostics and other nifty features like shift assist, dyno, and a 0-60 tester dragstrip mode. What you will need =============== 1x Netbook that runs on 12volts or smaller. 1x car charger cable for the netbook 1x ELM323 USB OBDReader 1x ScanXL software (in my opinion it's good, although american it does work well!) 1x Netbook laptop mount. HowTo: ===== 1. start by installing Dash XL onto the laptop, when in, configure it by adding your car profile, and then be ready when it asks to connect. 2. plug your ELM in via USB and wait for windows to finish installing the drivers for it. 3. once done, locate your EOBD socket. On the focus it's under the steering wheel. on the Digidash Escort its in the passenger footwell. 4. plug the Elm in, you should see RX and TX light blinker briefly and the Power LED should now be brighter. 5. with the engine running, click connect on scanXL, it'll connect up, the RX/TX lights will blinker like mad and it will then scan for PID's. 6. once done, you'll need to click on the setup tab then click PID's. Choose to select all and then choose to check all. save that and close the tab down. 7. goto Dashboards tab and click 'new scan XL' a virtual Dashboard appears on the screen. at the bottom Press the greed dot to monitor it. Now rev your car, you should see RPM move up and down. 8. If you do then bingo EOBD is working, check out the other dash sections with the buttons on the left. 9. now fit the mount, slot your laptop into it, and then tidy the wires away. 10. You are done, for extras see A below. A. For an OEM install, dismantle the car charger and wire it into a switch and then onto the battery, route the cable in the dash somewhere. for the ELM route the wire into the dash and have it come out by the laptop. Hope this helps

  20. HowTo digital dash =============== this one explains torque, im not sure if I have already covered it but alas I have screenshots. Parts needed =========== 1x Android phone preferably with ICS 4.0 or higher 1x bluetooth OBD elm327 1x phone charger 1x copy of torque pro and racing meter for torque pro (total cost about £5 for these apps) how to: ====== REALLY EASY! plug in yer obd adaptor, and start the car (as bumble says). then get your phone to scan for it via bluetooth, once found enter the passkey as 1234. if that fails try 0000, if that fails then try 6789. if it still fails (like on mine), you have to keep entering 1234 (this isn't for every phone! just mine it seems) then, go launch Torque, it should look like this: press the Cog, and firstly enter settings to go and configure some OBD parameters, and to switch on fast comms. then exit out and go into cog again to do the car profile. once done, save and exit. to get started and use the device straight away enter racing meter. using the three dots button ... you can enter the editor to add dials, change colour, and enter gear ratios for the gear display to work. Racing meter looks like this: it even has its own telemetry: exiting out of racing meter into torque you can also: click on fault codes to see this screen: This will allow you to scan for fault codes and clear them. Click on map view to load up a trip and view statistics etc and looks like this: finally after going for a run you can view test results, the screen initially looks like this: have fun and enjoy!

  24. Help? How to Hardwire a Thinkware f750 dash cam?

    Easy one this mate. the fusebox probably has a few circuits that stay on. an extendable fuse holder is what you need. so yes get a good earth and use that fuse holder to tap in. if your dashcam comes with a bare ended wire then easy enough to mate to the fuse holder, and the good ground. if like me your dashcam has just the 12v plug, then what I would do is buy a 12v socket with bare ended wires and wire that to the extendable fuse. then plug in. I would ensure plenty of ventilation. Should do the trick.
  25. Howto: Introduction ========= Here we show you how to adapt these Xenon units from an ST170 into any facelift focus. You can on the normal mk1. However you will need a different harness and I haven't decoded it yet. When I do, I will post it. Believe it or not the Xenon units use the same power points and same fuses, but the only real difference is the whole levelling motor. As thats controlled separately. However because it's the same motor as used normally in the halogen units, we can modify the pinout so the motors will drive from the manual leveller. If your model focus does not have the manual leveller, then I would suggest not doing this modification. This only applies to some real basic CL model Focus. Before we go any further, the legality of this can be read here: http://greyhead.co.uk/are-aftermarket-hid-lights-legal-in-the-uk it seems a slight change of law does allow us to do this conversion legally. I will leave that matter there, if you wish to start a flamewar over the legal issues regarding this then do so on the general chat section or the facebook group. Not in this howto, as it is merely a proof of concept that it can be done. The Howto - Parts needed: ==================== 2x ST170 xenon units 2x ST170 Ballasts (these are bolted on the bottom of the unit) 2x ST170 igniters (these fix to the bulb) 2x D2S Xenon HID Bulbs. Preferably 4300k, 5000k or 6000k. 2x headlamp plug with a short bit of loom from an ST170 or Ghia spec focus. (should have 10 wires) 2x headlamp socket from a halogen unit (prises out, cut some loom, has 7 pins) 1x roll of Electrical tape 1x solder and soldering iron 0x Patience The Howto - Howto: ================ lets start by assembling the xenon units together.ensure the D2s bulb is in, the igniter is on the end of the bulb and the 3 green wire with a small plug is plugged into the igniter. Ensure the ballast is plugged into the bottom of the unit and secured in place. now we will be making a harness. This allows us to plug and play the units without any chopping of ford loom. The socket (not the plug) will have on some pins, two wires coming from it. one thin and one thick. The thin ones are for the motor to level the unit. Pay attention to that, wrong way round could cause a fire if the current is too high for the wire. The harness diagram. Pin Number (Socket) ----- Pin Number (Plug) 1 (High Beam +VE) ------- 1 (High Beam +VE) 2 (Thin - Motor Power) --- 10 (Thin - Motor Power) 2 (Thick - Dipped +VE) --- 2 (Thick - Dipped +VE) 3 (Indicator +VE) ---------- 3 (Indicator +VE) 4 (Sidelight +VE) ---------- 4 (Sidelight +VE) 5 (Motor Signal) ----------- 9 (Motor Signal) 6 (Thick 1 - Ground) ------ 6 (Thick - Ground) 6 (Thick 2 - Ground) ------ 8 (Xenon Ground*) 7 (Motor Ground) --------- 7 (Motor Ground) wire these together. Pin 5 is not used on the plug, and pin 8,9, and 10 on the socket. on the halogen pin2 powers the motor and the dipped light. both dipped and high beam both ground to pin 6. Essentially the reason the xenon grounds on pin 8 is so that the auto levelling module knows the HID's are 'ON' then applies power itself to the motor on pin 10. Then controls the level using pin 9. Since we do not have this module, we are routing pin 9 to pin 5, the SAME signal is sent however you control it via the thumb wheel on the dash. As pin 8 is non existent we simply route it to the thicker second ground of pin 6 which was designed for the dipped halogen ground anyway. Then finally, taking the thinner wire from pin 2 to Pin 10 will fire up the motor. solder the joints together, insulate with electrical tape individually. Then insulate the bunched wires again with electrical tape. Congrats! you have now made a conversion harness! Now take both xenon units, place them loose, and use the harness to plug the loom into each unit. With the key in pos 2, turn on sidelight, go out and check they illuminate. Now turn on dipped, go out and check, now turn on main beam and go out and check. Finally test each side of the indicator and see if that flashes. what should happen is sidelights glow, then when dipped is on, the xenons light with the sidelight, then with main beam on, that should light with the xenon at the same time. (A legal requirement for the last bit). All good so far? great!, now aim both xenons at a wall. rotate the thumbwheel upto 4, you should see the beam go down. thumbwheel to 0 and it should go up. if one beam doesn't slide down much then it could be a sticky motor or something jamming. if nothing at all then check wiring. once happy, go ahead and swap the units over and bolt into place. Conversion done From this: to this:
