Sounds easy enough when you toggle the option and write do you have to add something in or does it just do it automatically? If you do have to write something what do you put in its place. I'm assuming are cars have the same designs

2016 Focus S, 5-Speed, Cruise?

Hey guys,

I purchased a 2016 Focus S with a 5 speed manual transmission. I have been trying to find anyone who has had experience adding cruise control to this model WITH a 5 speed. While I am fairly confident that the transmission type shouldn’t interfere with the control systems of the car, I have not found a convincing post stating that the modification listed above is possible. If anyone would be able to provide insight into the capability of adding a cruise control functionality to a 2016 Base Model S, 5 Speed, it would be much appreciated. My intentions, if they are possible, would be to replace my steering wheel with one that has the cruise control module, and update the ECU using the tools mentioned before by clownfocus.

I really appreciate any insight, as this modification is pretty intimidating to me considering what I am modifying, and don’t want to brick my car.

Thanks in advance guys!

My Focus is a base model(s). I have the automatic transmission. I bought a cruise control steering wheel off of Ebay for $75. It took me longer to change the steering wheel out then to program. Its not hard, my only word of advice is make sure you have a good cable, don’t buy one from walmart, they are knock offs. I bought mine directly from Scantool.

Great. I'm seeing a couple of ST steering wheels that I may pick up, along with the hardware to connect to FORScan. I will update the thread when I get the ball rolling on this project for anyone who is interested in a 2006, Mk3.5 S Model cruise control retrofit.

Hey clown, thanks for your response.

I went ahead and purchased a steering wheel assembly that included the cruise control interface, as well as a Scantool brand OBD2 interface to write the new configurations. Decided for the OBD2 Scanner MX. The next challenge is becoming versed in the software side.

All are welcome, and encouraged, to share their experiences with this mod and the (to me) seemingly varying results in their attempts.

If I may ask, did you ever have any concerns that your 2016 Focus S did not have the appropriate control hardware installed originally (cruise modules and other physical OEM cruise control support systems, separate of the software potential)? If so, how were you able to resolve those concerns through verifying these components were in-fact installed, just inactive? While the anecdotes of success are common on this forum, I am still a little uneasy on the application to my vehicle.

Did you use any databases/resources that guided you through this process on specifically a 2016 Focus S? I am beginning to study CAN protocol in an attempt to understand the systems I'll be modifying (maybe too low level, but hey, can't hurt right?).

If you are able to provide any insight into how you would advise my situation and my concerns on the plausibility of this mod, I would really appreciate it, especially in light of the 1 month wait period to deliver the parts.

I hope that my request for so much information is not taken as an ignorance of the plethora of examples on this forum. I can assure you that these requests stem from a doubt that I have not seen this mod done to my specific configuration (2016 Focus S, 5-spd). I am interested in any assistance, or assurance that can be provided. I hope you have a great weekend and I am excited to be a part of such a helpful community.

I was also afraid it wouldn't work on my vehicle (2012 base SE 5 speed, without any extras), but went ahead and it worked like a charm.

All NA Focus use the same PCM, so it's just a matter of activating the feature on the BCM and installing the switch.

So I ended up installing the new steering wheel and re-writing the BCM with Cruise Control set to active. However, my stability control indicator is now constantly illuminated, and hill assist will not work. Any ideas why this could be happening? I cannot seem to clear the code...
