Cruise Control installation fails - please advise

Hello,

My 2012 MK3 focus didn't came with cruise control.
The model i have called in Israel "Trend", which is the 1.6 PNDA engine (125hp), PowerShift gearbox (Yay..), Steering wheel volume control, non-Sync stereo and digital climate control.

one this is missing in this model - cruise control.

Since many guides online teach you how to manipulate the internal steering wheel harness to install OEM cruise control on models that don't come with it, i took it one step further and bought from eBay used (but supposedly working) original harness with both cruise control and volume buttons (although i had volume button already installed).

this was the sale:
12 13 14 Ford Focus Steering Wheel Cruise Radio Phone Control Switches OEM 33W | eBay

i used this nice installation guide:
Retrofitting original Cruise Control on a Focus MK3 - Ford Focus Guides - Ford Owners Club - Ford Forums

After physical installation i did the software side install using the FoCCCus software according to all steps.
All went good without any issue.

The outcome is that the volume button works great,
but the cruise control does not.

and btw, flashing the ecu was pretty scary.
thank god it went well because i read online that some people used the wrong OBD2 adapter and bricked the ECU, which is bummers...


PLEASE HELP :(

Thanks guys!

Check mine and compare if you have missed steps ---->>Official Genuine Cruise Control Update...

We don't select/enable ASL like Euro focus...try to skip that option and see...

But you have an Euro spec Focus... most people here have US Focus

I'll try removing the ASL and i'll update you if it's made any difference..

Moreover, the inside of my steering wheel looks different than the ones on your post.
Clockspring is different, airbag connectors are different.
