If a Ford Tech doesn't know what IDS is, he's brand new & only changes oil/tires.
That computer system is the one ford uses for EVERYTHING having to do with the cars.

A big thanks to this thread, it made everything simple and painless. Only issue I had was renting one of those "universal" pullers. It didn't want to grip the steering wheel when trying to pull it. Eventually I got it though.
Only issue now is finding someone to do the programming here in Phoenix Arizona. No Ford tech seems to know what the hell I am talking about, what an IDS or any of that is. I am probably using the wrong jargon I am sure.

Just a FYI, I finally was able to find a dealer to successfully enable the speed control option within the PCM for me.
If anyone in the Detroit Metro area is interested in this mod, Jack Demmer Ford in Wayne Michigan is the dealer that was able to enable it for me with no issues. (They're located across the street from Michigan Assembly where my 2010 Focus was built)

|Tgkspike||You are correct, I had an auto body shop help me look at it. Anyone know if the airbag clips attached to the wheel can be bought aftermarket? The wheel I found is missing them. I assume I can pull from the old wheel.|

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?
