Ooh, and just FYI, before the clutch safety switches, they used Neutral Safety switches.

Ford does updates and replacements, that's all they are required to do.

If it does not see both of those signals together it won’t start. On the manual it sees that same brake signal but instead of the signal from the Transmission Range Sensor it sees a signal from the Clutches Neutral Safety Switch. I did not have the wiring pigtail for this so, to see if it started we just grounded the wire we needed. Easily enough, [bold]we used the wire that was originally the Range Sensor wire coming from the TCM and grounded that[/bold]. It was already in the car and easy to get to. I do however plan on actually doing the wiring properly when I get the pigtails. They will be ordered tomorrow.
Anybody here knows exactly what wire OP used to ground and convince the computer to start the car? I studied the diagrams, I've seen which wire he's supposedly talking about, but I'm confused. Because that wire going from Shifter to TCM is basically left alone after the swap since there's no shifter and no tcm... Thanks for your help

According to post #62, you have to ground pin #13 on the PCM to get it to start, not the TCM.

13 from the ECM goes to 39 in the TCM as shown on the diagram I posted earlier (called clutch bot). I tried grounding that one as well to no avail. So I'm assuming everybody who got the car to start already had a tune going beforehand?

You have to ground the following cable: Solid Grey with an Orange Stripe. The wire you are looking for will come off of the wire harness/plug that went down to the TCM.

Just ground it to the frame, easy as that...

I just completed the Auto to Manual swap on my car this weekend (1.5 month long project), and that's exactly what I did and the engine starts no problem!

I used the Haynes manual (Page 12-25) to determine that the Solid Grey cable with an Orange Stripe was the cable I needed to ground.

If you need any further assistance with the wiring, I documented my entire swap on my youtube channel, just search youtube for "Ford Focus - Automatic to Manual Transmission Swap | Part 8". In that video I show the car starting and I put the transmission in 1st gear.

That's great to see man. I tried grounding that wire as well before removing the automatic transmission completely and wasn't able to get it started so I ended up replacing my 2012 DPS6 by a 2016 DPS6 that I got for 300 bucks and that was it. I have a workaround for the 3500 rpm rev limit based on the wiring diagrams that would add a "starting switch" and a "driving switch" to the car which would allow you to get past the that limit on the manual swap, I'll send you the diagrams and you can try it out before tuning it.
