MK3 SelectShift Conversion

Alright guys so, I am now starting my journey to convert my non-SelectShift focus to have the SelectShift option. I haven't seen anyone try this yet so I want to give it a shot. UPDATE: I am in no way responsible for any damages. This is not any easy modification and took me hours of fiddling to get this right. If yoh decide to do this, keep in mind that it is difficult and takes patience. Enjoy. So with the FoCCCus Elm config i changed settings in the IPC and BCM to have the shifter switching to selectshift which made it work! Here is my full writeup: You first need to buy a shifter. Make sure it has a Plus and Minus and three wires. Then You want to make sure the center console is torn apart. There is a thread for that here: http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/showthread.php?t=259777
next is where the fun starts. You will find the shifter bongle and tap into the wires.


The original shifter had only two wires, a brown and yellow. It connected to the yellow/blue and white/blue wires. But now it will go as follows: brown from the shifter to the brown/violet wire that goes to the BCM which is shift up. Yellow from the shifter to green/white wire that goes to the BCM which is shift down. And the black from the shifter goes to the black/green wire that goes to the BCM that is ground. I followed this wiring diagram So now that the wiring is done, you need to use the FoCCCus software to turn the software on in both the BCM and IPC. I first used the FoCCCus software to turn on the Selectshift tech in the shifter type and also in the trans in both the BCM and IPC. You can find that software here: http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/showthread.php?t=402666 I previously thought that I needed a tune to make selectshift work, but today (May 17th, 2014) I reverted my tune back to stock, with only the Focccus Software changes enabled, and it still worked. So you don't need a custom tune but it makes the shifts soooooooo much faster. I would honestly recommend it.
If you have any questions feel free to PM me and I will keep this as up to date as possible. A special thanks to Tom, at FocusPower for helping me out and the developer of the ELM config FoCCCus software for making this possible! Also, my instagram video: http://instagram.com/p/n8sN9zKiK6/

Okay here is the first part I ordered. The assembly part number is 242.FD1G12 but i only ordered the shift knob. I decided to go ebay just because it was only the shift knob that i need.

So the DCT is free of worries for you, my guess. What about if after this conversion, the DCT starts giving you problems?
I didn't know there were two kind of DCT

Not every focus owner with a DCT tranny hates it and has problems with it. Everybody speaks out when they have problems, whereas when someone is happy with something they don't speak out.
