Google Ford ETIS... Type in your VIN... That will get you your actual build date.

What options do you have, it could change the buttons that control your interior lights...?

not sure of the all the differences ,between jobs 1 @ 2 .guess it was kind of mid production year changes ,like adding grill shutters to all vehichles ,job 1 they were only available on certain vehichles. check this thread about your lights you might find something there seems to be several different light setups . http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/s...ht=dome+lights
