soo ..... i tried fitting the pcm/icc/etc from my parts car [BA]. no problems with it .... till i went for a drive :oops: :roll: no speedo so limp home mode :? sooo removed fitted parts [except for the column] & found the icc wiring plug on the right had broken it's clip :evil: . i ended up having to cut the plug off to get the icc out.

so went & found another plug, so cut it off & went home thinking you bewdy! . . . . one needed wire short :( . caught up with a local parts supplier i know & he let me have a plug from a car he was wrecking. it ended up having 3 extra wires :lol: . we also chatted about the limp home mode.


repaired the damage caused [all wires soldered & heat shrink fitted] & changed the icc cover with the one used in the swap as all buttons appeared to work [unlike the original]. i then refitted the original pcm/icc/bem [after having the chat i decided might be best to refit them], however it was no go as car was now unable to be started. so out with the computer/forscan with a pats/reset done. car now has two sets of working keys which is good as car only came with the one.


i also fitted a XR cluster

Image

cluster does not seem to have the traction control light on the right as per original cluster?


also when i was checking the car with forscan it shows the parts car as a 2004 with the pcm also as a 2004. however the wagooon shows up as a 2003 with a pcm showing 2006 :?: :?: was this the cause of the limp home mode??


cheers

one of the mods i'm gunna try .. is mounting some small driving as just Aux reverse lights. mounted behind the lpg tank so only showing the ground & hopefully unseen otherwise.


bracket to mount lights with one shown, currently thinking of using two lights. bracket needs to be 'shaped' to suit [match tank] and mounted to the two rear tank cover mounts.

have fitted a XR cluster & changed my icc to XR [lights only] & have bought a spare XR icc for the fan speed decal :roll:

Image


Image


the fan speed decal has been changed .... incase ya wondering :mrgreen:


hopefully at some time or another...................



will fit two of these lights as reverse lights on that bar when it's bent to suit.

Image

mounted on the lpg tank cover.

Image

these are also waiting to be fitted &

Image

there is a small bracket to mount them lights as well


noice trims too as Fairmont Ghia

Image


i need to workout why my elec window switches don't light up [it's a futura so it shouldn't] as when i checked out one switch it had the extra wire . . . . . .... :roll:

at some stage or another i will need to send away my XR cluster to have it modded to suit the wagooon, fog lights & traction control as it is from a sedan & has none of the necessary lights for em.


Cheers

so it got me thinking about what are the differances between the XR cluster & the base model clusters i have here. not that much from just a 'casual' looksy


Base Model - left & right led's.

Image

Image


XR Model - left & right led's

Image

Image


the base model decal [what ever it's called :? ]

Image

Image

Image


XR model

Image

Image

Image


so other than the diff lock [for the RTV i presume] there is no real differance with what lights up thru the decal.




i believe i will need some pointers re getting the led's to light up as i'm unsure on the wiring required. pics below are the cluster connectors with hopefully enough detail so you knowledgeable ones can give me some pointers :notworthy


left plug

Image

Image


right plug

Image

Image


i believe the Traction control switch works as it was already there when car was purchased with wiring loom. fog light switch is non working currently. and i do have some ebay 'specials' car manuals :lol: :roll:



so i have refitted the original cluster i got when i bought the wagooon

XR cluster has been delivered [for adjustment] and some more parts sourced :roll:

next week more parts & cluster returned :mrgreen:

bought some aftermarket weathershields ages ago & finally fitted em. factory ones would have fitted 'slightly' betterer .. but not much. not even sure what car they were actually made for, but for the $ they fit reasonably well and they sure do make a differance inside the car 8-)

when i get around tuit ... this will be the trims used

Image

from a

Image

again .... what i bought awhile back :mrgreen:

not sure on what i will go with re seating .. but it won't be with what everyone calls "leather" got over that back in the '00's & a hot summer :shock: [plus it always reminds me of the old vinyl ]

thinking something along the lines of dark cloth/fabric [have seen some interesting fabrics in the territories] with headrests on rear seats. currently not sure on which style of headrest ..... either similar to front rests or territory rears. might even change the spear colouring.... :roll:


also ..... is there any differance between the AU M7 & the BA M7??


Cheers

so XR cluster has been modded & refitted... but will be pulled out again & fitted with the front pieces from a BF XR cluster.

Image


Image


compared to the BA XR cluster

Image


have also bought some more pieces

Image

Image


and grabbed some wiring pieces so i can set up the window switch lights as per the fairmonts etc etc. this one having the diode i needed... :D

Image


as seen in previous pic i also grabbed 'another' dash :roll: in case i stuff up the 1st one i try to mod and the backup :wink: . have also grabbed some BA/BF ute/wagooon handbrake cable brackets so i can modify the diff out of 'ol yella for use in the 'new' wagooon :mrgreen:


previously i had grabbed another combined traction control/fog light switch & cluster plug with the extra wire needed for the fog light to light up in cluster [traction already does]

Image


as was explained to me - i need the wire/pin fourth from the left.

Image


so i'm slowly getting there :mrgreen:


did find a M7 AU............ front panels would suit the smartbar i have here 8-)

you would be refering to the two wires to the right of the blue/red stripe in the below pic correct?. and the fog light wire is then the next along?

shall have to find a plug & strip some connector pins ...... more tools :shock: :roll: :lol:

Yep

D


so have the tools to help me now . . . . . or stab me :lol: :roll:

Image

that was fun NOT! .... sacrificed two plugs otherwise i would not have a clue re how to pull apart. dunno where gothefalcon got the patience from to depin ALL them wires :shock:

so i have the two pieces needed for my mod. now to workout where the wire went to & apply it to my loom [now wish i had not cut the looms up so much :? ]

so THANK YOU gothefalcon for the guidance re wiring for the fog lights & another THANK YOU to Magna for help with the diode 8-) [both from ford forums]


aand current view of the dash/icc/cluster with the new add on fitted & blends in well 8-) :lol: to fit the bluetooth i had to pull out the icc/cluster "again" so i could remove the wiring i had fitted previously..... then fit the 'new' wiring loom :roll: which was not fun ... but easier as it only needed to be fitted under the dash.

Image


now just need to fix the shifter globe & use Linz's idea re shifter light :mrgreen: [from ford forums as well]

http://www.fordforums.com.au/showpost.php?p=6436844&postcount=546


also waiting for the blue led's so i can try my hand at the clock & mod it like 5h4dy. 8-) :lol: :roll: :mrgreen:


Ps. phone bluetooth is from an escape & works well :mrgreen:
