Can anyone that lives in the UK that knows a lot about the Focus tell me in what year cars did they first install Adaptive Cruise Control. I have looked at so many Focus models in the UK cars sales web sites and I can not find any MK3-MK3.5 cars that have Adaptive Cruise Control. Maybe i'm wrong and the Focus did not come equipped with that option in the UK. Well let me know if anyone knows the answer to this question. Tnx

Adaptive cruise control was an option for MK3 cars from the start circa 2012 onwards.

The system can be retrofitted to cars without it and switched on in the BCM.

Search on eBay for second hand parts.

Also search on autotrader.co.uk and put "adaptive" as a key word in the advanced search section.

The radar is behind the passenger side front grill triangle on Mk3 cars (US driver's side). The fins of the triangle are shallower than the non adaptive cruise cars which is an easy way to spot them.

Controls look a little different on the MK3 compared to the Mk3.5 cars.

Thank you E365 and reverendhtc. You guys are great. :) I am in the US. Our Focus's did not come with that option here, but the 2017 to current Escape aka Kuga has it. And i was thinking being that the Escape here is the sister car of the Focus, i should be able to add it to my Focus. I noticed in the FOcccus software that under the cruise option drop down there is the option for the adaptive cruise. I'm hoping once i install the module in the grille and install the switch and connect the FOcccus software and choose/change to the adaptive cruise control that it will start working. Being that the Escape steering wheel is the exact same as the Focus MK3.5 wheel, i already bought the switch from our dealer here. So i got that. I will buy the module on ebay in due time. I already have the wiring diagram for the wires from the module. There are four wires to connect. 1 (BLACK) Ground 2 (RED/GREEN) Ignition 3 (BLUE/WHITE) Can bus + And 4 (WHITE/BLUE) Can Bus -. That's it. Pray for me guys that it is that easy. Keep in mind I am the only person in the whole USA that has converted an MK3 to a MK3.5 completely from ground up. So if i can do that, i'm sure i can do the AAC. :-D But if you guys can help me locating the bracket for the MK3.5 car so i can buy that. I can't get that here as again we didn't have this option in our Focus. If you guys can find me a part number for it, i can do some searching. Thanks again for all your help.
