CaysE, we think alike, why have a perfectly good indicator sitting there that doesn't work?

The parts aren't all that expensive, but I spent about 3 days straight researching it, and I still have to modify the connector, run wiring to the front bumper and install it. I also had to get a spare cluster to test the indicator circuit. I'd have to find the receipt to get the price for you.

I think it's definitely useful here in NJ... late fall and early spring weather changes often and quickly, and it's definitely helpful to know if there's water or ice on the road if you're driving for an hour+ in rush hour traffic as it dips below freezing.

More options = more gooder.

There's a picture...

that displays it activated in a Focus. Must just be a missed detail by Ford's marketing department...or is it?

YES! That's it. Great picture. I gave you a rep point for that one, thanks for taking the time to find it.

Now the real fun begins, figuring out how to activate those indicators.

When you snagged that picture was there a description of the year and model, or even if it was from a US or European model?

As far as I know, it was an American '08 SE/SES with SYNC package. The only difference I see in that model from mine is the the ambient lighting, but I highly doubt that would make the difference.

I have an SE 08' with ambient lighting, so nope that ain't it. Must be the SES model. Now I have something to do afterwork, research.

I hope you find a way to make that work, but I think the place where that panel gets recyled is on the Fusion SEL's. The option that adds the temp sensors is the EATC. If you can find that option for a Focus, I think that's what you're looking for. I attached a picture of where I think it gets recycled (with different color LED's)

I'm a little confused as the picture that JB posted above clearly shows the display in a Focus. I did a little looking at work this afternoon and found another pic showing the same display that had a caption under it that read "2008 Ford Focus SE". But I couldn't dig deeper to find out where it came from. Now my 08' SE does have all of those indicators in the display, but they are hiding quietly away doing nothing.

But it does make sense that it would have to do with EATC. Have to look and see if that's an option on any Focus models.

I can smell it, we're getting closer!

Those pics are Ford press pics; not production model cars. In typical Ford fashion, they penny-pinched numerous options for production (unless there's an EATC option for the new Focus).
