Sorry to ressurect this thread.
I have a 2010 Focus, I bought and installed a new steering wheel with speed control. Took it to the local Ford dealer with OP instructions for enabling speed control in programmable parameters, and they were unable to enable speed control. They said the PCM installed is incorrect to activate non factory feature, and after they loaded incorrect software the vehicle would not crank. They said is was necessary to restore the PCM with original as-built data so it would start.
My question is, should I take my chances and try another dealer? Just wondering if something changed with Fords IDS (update, etc) that won't allow this mod?(as of 11/23/2016)
Also, has anyone in the Detroit Metro area had success with this mod, and if so what dealer did you use?

You can look for new at an online Dealer like tasca.com or Village Ford (check their info. in the Vendors section here).
Otherwise it's searching J/Y or even BST or WTB sections here.

|Hawkeye4077||Sorry to resurrect an old thread but I am seriously considering doing this to my Focus. I was wondering if anyone could tell me where a good place to find a steering wheel for a 2010 in the light gray color scheme. I've checked E-bay to no avail. Any and all assistance would be greatly appreciated.|

Not sure if anyone still participates in this thread, but I just took a journey over to my local Ford dealer and asked them about this. To my surprise, they knew exactly what I was talking about, right down to the PCM options and told me to bring her in.
After about an hour or so of them fiddling with it, they let me know they couldn't find the "Speed Control" option in the PCM. I did not see them going through the IDS but they told me what they tried, and it was the same steps as in the OP in this thread.

|Benyay||Thank you OP for the well written article and detailed instructions. I just did the same thing last week. I had pulled a steering wheel from a wrecked 09 Focus with Cruise and Audio controls and installed it in my 09 Focus. I took the stereo from the wreck as well. The audio buttons didn't work with my stock head unit so I installed the other one and now the buttons work flawlessly. The dealer gave me flack about activating it. I had to be polite but firm and showed him he instructions from this post and he said he'd give it a whirl. But I'd pay either way. Had a $200 roll of the dice but it all worked out. The technician was not impressed I knew more than him. Now she's like a whole new machine. Thanks again OP.|
