  1. i have a 2019 connect and it has the triple blade fuses which i bought fuse taps for. then plugged fuse taps into bcm in the footwell.
  2. The models with power fold mirrors come with door control modules. the mid to lower end models do not and these modules are can bus so i am not too sure if it can be done. i haven't gotten anywhere.
  3. There are loads in the footwell fusebox of ignition feeds. install a fuse tap to any one and off you go. you need a multimeter. mine is wired this way in my van plus 5 others i did at work

    Electrical Question

    Isolate power, use wire stippers to expose copper wrap new feed to existing wire and solder. cover exposed copper with electrical tape in abundence. Reinstate power and test

    What is Correct Alternator Voltage?

    i expect around 14.2v but thats in europe if that makes any difference.
  6. obd link just seems to work. would not recommend anything else. just my experience.
  7. Hi all, Just posting back. took a punt and bought the part, fitted it today. It was as easy as drilling 4 rivets out, replacing blank plate with mechanism and feeding cable through the existing holes in the chassis. 1 big bolt fitted for second strap and all ready to go. Easy fit

    Aftermarket radio

    there are lots of kits available in the uk. https://incartec.co.uk/Ford/Transit-Connect-2014/Stereo-Upgrade-Double-Din these sell complete kits to change or convert over to aftermarket. im also looking to do this soon.
  10. Hi all, i am trying to upgrade my transit connect and have already added cruise control thanks to this forum. My next task is to add power folding mirrors to it. It currently has electrically adjustable mirrors but they do not fold. I have found aftermarket mirrors available but my van has 5 wires in the plug and the power folds require 6. Has anyone ever tried this and do i just need a new door wiring loom? Any wiring diagrams or information would be great as there are no repair manuals for this generation in the uk yet. link below is to the mirrors https://www.wingmirrorman.co.uk/wing-mirrors/ford-wing-mirror-units/ford-transit-connect-wing-mirror-units/ford-transit-connect-2013-2018-wing-mirror-units/ford-transit-connect-2013-2018-electric-folding-primed-wing-mirror-unit-driver-side Thanks
  11. Hi All, in the uk we have the wind up winch wheel storage so it lifts the wheel to the underside of the rear of the van. i have plenty of space to fit the parts its just that mine didn't come with that fitted from the factory. I have found the part available i just wondered if it was an easy retro fit. if anyone has any experience please let me know. Thanks in advance
  12. Hello all, I want to fit a spare wheel carrier to a transit connect. has anyone else done this? i have seen a part on ebay but am not sure on retro fitting. any ideas are welcome if anyone knows anything. below is link to the part https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FORD-TRANSIT-CONNECT-SPARE-WHEEL-CARRIER-2013-ON-1897926-1825486-/253250786825 thanks in advance
  13. is this repair manual available to buy?? cant find much in the uk. normally we have haynes manuals but they havent made one for this generation. thanks
  14. i have done this on amazon and strongly recommend not buying clone junk. thanks all
  15. WELL ALL, GREAT NEWS - finally got it to turn on and work. thank you for the support from this forum. i had sucess with obdlink mx+ It worked flawlessly with forscan and it gave me many more options within forscan compared to the Crappy ELM clone (bbfly obd) so in short my procedure is this. Replace steering wheel for one with cruise control switch pod Connect to car via whichever adapter ( i strongly recommend the obdlink mx+) which is a bluetooth connection ( i bought a tplink bluetooth dongle from amazon) go to each as built module and start the service procedure ( modules are in the tab with the computer chip down the left hand side) once the service procedure has started back up the as built module you are in (save to file) Exit (stop) the service procedure you are in once backup file is saved and repeat the backup for all As Built modules possible Then click on bcm central configuration and start service procedure it will prompt about secondary bootloader ( read prompts and follow as instructed.) you will need to change the following 2 settings adjustable speed limiter and cruise control write settings and follow screen prompt to cycle ignition. end service procedure central config bcm (stop Icon) then check dtc codes for errors and clear as necessary disconnect from forscan , remove obd dongle and take for a test and see if switches operate. i hope this helps anyone who needs it. i will monitor the post and offer any help where i can and once again thanks everyone who took the time to help or even write anything on this post.
