FoCCCus Central ECU Config Edit

Found this on another forum, seems interesting....

Quote:
FoCCCus Central ECU Config Edit has been developed to provide the same features of the ELMConfig program, but for the Ford Focus MK3 (2011 – 2016) owners.

FoCCCus Central ECU Config is a fairly new program to the internet, and is still currently being developed, but it is still in a good condition to use, to enable auto door locking, turn off passenger seatbelt warning chime, disable your day time running lights, and is also useful if you retro fit anything like a tow bar, where you can enable the tow bar functions yourself without visiting Ford.

The opportunities are endless with the new FoCCCus Central ECU Config program, and best news is, its free. All you need to do is get your hands on a ELM372, and modify it, or send me an email and I may have some modified ELM’s already made.

Ive got some screen shots and a link to website.

There is a site called focusownersclub that has a post that is 133 pages long. There are quite a few free reprogram type pc applications out there but they all require the above 2 types of obd adapters.

This program is attempting to emulate the vehicle configuration function of the IDS.
Use with extreme caution!

Yeah, I would advise not to use this unless you know what you are doing, or more development work has gone into it. Let someone else be the guinea pig.

I've always wondered why car manufacturers don't allow users to edit more functions of the car, via a handheld device or computer (why the hell can't USB be implemented for this...?).

I'm not necessarily talking about everything a tuner or even the IDS tool can do, but why not allow gauge cluster backlights to change color, which head unit function always starts up when you turn on the car (USB vs FM radio, for instance), allow parking lights to come on automatically based on ambient light but before the headlights turn on, etc. Even without all that, it would be SO much easier to do things like turning off the seat belt chime, resetting oil monitors, etc. that often require complicated routines involving the pedals and turning the ignition several times.

There is a LOT of computer controlled stuff in cars these days, why not let the user edit it all, via an easy to use GUI?

Sweet! Sounds like a good way to potentially avoid having to buy a lockpick. I imagine getting nav for free would be possible as well. Saw a defcon presentation about hacking the CAN but this is the first time I've seen something for a focus. Good stuff! Thanks for the share.

Unfortunately, that is not part of the vehicle configuration data.

1) Multiple color gauge clusters can be done but cost more $$$
2) I doubt that most people want the same audio function every time they start their car. The head unit should simply remember the last audio source that was selected, no?
3) Driving with parking lights is illegal in some states.
4) It's much easier to turn on a key and press pedals than it is to connect and use a laptop in a car.
