As far as I am aware Ford did not offer the 12-15 Escape with paddle shifters.

So for a Mk3 Focus with the round shaped wheel controls are there any options to have paddle shifters without changing to the later Mk3.5 steering wheel design?

I have a 2012 with S mode and shift buttons on the stick as stock. I just want to add paddle shifters without going to the newer style wheel if possible.

Hey, I know this is a really late response to the thread, but I'm trying this out on my 2015 Focus SE and did everything just as instructed, the only difference is my check engine light is on. I've cycled the ignition multiple times and no change is apparent. Everything seems exactly as you said here, but nothing has changed. Any ideas?

i would double check the components and wire connectors and make sure they go to what they should

for reference, i did a cloth/leather seat swap from a '13 to my '12, the seats had different pinout in the connectors, the belt buckle had 5 wires instead of 2, and the passenger pressure bag (ever being identical down to the part number) was somehow incompatible

had to dismount and transplant all this mess to get the airbags to come back online
