With a little wiring changes I got these 2 to work as paddle shifters which mine has S mode already and I have voice command and cruise , this would be nothing more then then some wiring if you have S mode , and both paddles

I am trying to come up with a way now to wire in both at the same time and maybe the turn off the S on and off where it still works on the shifter in off and paddles in on , Wife does not like not having cruise lol

Tom
Can it work with non "S" models?

okay i'm a bit confused and a lot excited about this.

sounds like you're changing the functionality of the lower paddles that currently control voice prompt and cruise control activation to instead shift up/down? yeah not too desirable to lose that stuff :)

it seems like making (distinct, separate) paddles that exactly emulate the plus and minus buttons on the shifter would be ideal; they wouldn't turn on manual shifting mode unless the stick was in "S" and you pushed them (just like the buttons on the knob are ignored if you're in D mode).

but, does the rotate-able wiring mechanism in the wheel support any additional buttons? i doubt ford would have built in extra contacts to suppor that.

now that i re-read this thread in the context of the questions i asked, i feel like captain obvious. :P

the white plug they show in the pictures looks like it's near the shift linkage, not the steering column.

Do realize they're using AMG paddles.

This is how we'd have to install it.
Pretty simple from the looks of it. Just would have to figure out the wiring.

Those paddle shifters look awesome! I would definitely be interested in how to implement the paddle shifters in the Focus. I could see using the voice command and cruise control paddles in their place if there was a way to program it so that it was only engaged when in S mode and not all the time. Not having paddle shifters has been the one big downside of the focus and it would be great to take full advantage of the DCT rather than just having the silly switch on the shifter.

Even if a paddle kit did come out, i would probably use the directions to wire it into my stock paddles bc cheap.
