Hi

I swapped my FF3 factory fitted insturment cluster for C-max instrument cluster BM5T-10849-JS (HW: BM5T-14C226-BE, SW: BM5T-14C026-BL).

I want to update the firmware, but I have no idea where to look for the firmware files. Could you please give some direction?

Thank you.

Hello,

I see you are doing some great things to your cars but most of the communication is in Russian which I do not speak.

Is it possible for someone to walk through what modifications to the electronics systems you have found in English? There are many people in the US that could benefit and possibly support the projects you are working on.

We are using Focccus but have read some things about UCDS but the information is very limited on UCDS.

Hi!
This topic was opened special for english speaking people. You can ask a question you`re interested in here. We try to answer it or at least google translate the appropriate post from this forum.
I`m a user of UCDS so some special questions may be asked too.

At the same time, the interface is such. Below 0 degrees Celsius is red snow light, greater than 0 degrees of less than 4 degrees Celsius is warning yellow snow lamp

If you want to get the red and yellow snowflake light just flash BU firmware. To get ST logo set #236 parameter of central config to 03 ST.

What do you mean "such an interface"?

As we see you have ST dashboard.

Hi,

I have a little trouble
I tried to update my IPC my Focus with the program FOCCCUS, but unsuccessfully. The IPC is dead, would not light up, I tried to do even recover, comes to 99% after 50 minutes and then tells me he can't upload file VBF.

HW: 8M5T-14C226-AE
APP: 8M5T-14C026-AAC
EEPROM: 8M5T-14C026-AEC

Please help me, thanks a lot.

Best Regards

Could you tell which device do you use for firmware upload?
Baudrate?
Timeout in device advanced settings (see in "Device manager")?

Please attach the log if you have one. If you don't have any try again with logs enabled.

It is recommended to set 500k baudrate for ELM327 and 2M baudrate for ELS27, 1ms timeout in case FTDI uart bridge.

Guys,

I have a Focus Mk3, without cruise, no DDS, so I heard that I can upgrade the firmware of my gauge, and after the upgrade, I would be able to enable these cool functions with Fcccous.

I'm not sure how to update the firmware, but I found below info from internet, it is said that they are from this forum, it would be much appreciate if you could confirm that this will work.
I already bought a ELM327 with FTDI chip, and the speed can be set to 500k, so I guess that would work.
I bought another gauge just in case I would damage my own one.

so besides of below firmwares, may I know where we can get the latest firmware for the gauge?

Sequence of actions is as follows:
1. ELM327 (revised) manually set the maximum speed 500000kbp
2. The program is unchecked (FoCCCus) cars and maximum speed, because falling out when reading error.
3. Downloaded firmware and calibration files from here
4. Open the tab IPC click GET INFO rewrite everything in a notebook. Click READ rewrite everything in a notebook. (If something goes wrong diagnostician will be easier to restore the "brick")
5. Open TOOLS tab click BROWSE specify the path to
- BM5T-14C026-AAA (there where you saved it) press START forward 100% then specify
- BM5T-14C026-AEA (to where you saved it) press START

You need ELM327 with switch for MS-CAN bus, because IPC on Focus Mk3 is on MS-CAN.
The sequence is correct, but actually you don't need to update calibration if just want to add DDS and cruise.
It may be enabled on old fw versions. All you need is to change direct configuration in IPC and change central configuration in BCMi. Then for DDS you have to execute ABS initialization (still in FoCCCus).
But anyway your ELM327 must be with MS/HS-CAN switch, or you need STN1170-based tool, which has two can buses out of the box.

Hi Ittrium,

Thanks for your reply.
I have tried with these two files, but they both failed with error "Error During Loading VBF", I'm not sure if it's because of the poor wire. My wire has a switch for MS/HS-CAN. and I have tried to edit BCM with HS-CAN, enabled "Auto Locking", it's working, also under MS-CAN, I uploaded two SBL files successfully. (BM5T-14C025-BD and BM5T-14C025-AD), but uploading BM5T-14C026-AAA and BM5T-14C026-AEA both failed. I can see in the status bar, when it's trying to "Loading Secondary Bootloader", then if failed immediately.

Kindly share any ideas or concerns, if we can confirm it's the wire issue, I will buy a ELS27 and try again.

Seems that your ELM327 is not stable or fast enough. Is it based on FTDI chip? If so, try to set timeout to 1 ms in device properties in device manager (default is 16 ms). And if it doesn't help, enable logs in FoCCCus and share here.

Yes Ittrium,
I'm using ELM327 with FTDI chip, and I have set the timeout to 1ms in device manager already, still got same issue. I captured the log, please help to check.

By the way, the speed is 500000 when starting Focccus.

Seems that now it is not ELM327 related problem.
The problem is that your IPC doesn't accept the secondary bootloader to the address it is uploading.
Maybe your IPC is different and is not supported by FoCCCus yet.
I will check the right bootloader according to your log a bit later and will let you know.

Thanks Ittrium,
Let me know if I can help, maybe there is some kind of scan software, which can scan the car for the SBL address? I'm not sure, well, thanks again for your help!

I was told that UCDS can flash my car's IPC, not sure if this helps.
