Re 2017 Focus ST Sync 3.0 CANBus decoding

Post by bazza »

Hi All, I have been searching globally for a solution that will work in decoding the Canbus steering wheel controls to be able to work with my Teslya style display. I am happy to get away with just the SW1 and SW2 wires because I can use those. As far as I know and ford say, you need the original Ford LCD display fitted to be able to decode the canbus steering wheel controls :(

I am hoping that the Maestro will actually do this Image as per this.

We do work with both the analog and digital steering wheel controls in this car. However, we translate the messages into the protocol of the radio that you flash it for, so we only have support for the radios listed on our website.

Thanks Dara,

Unfortunately like myself and quite a few others, the units are not products like Kenwood, Alpine etc.. The one I have is from SInosmart, they are unable to decode the canbus but do have a SW wires.

Hence that is why I am looking for something that will work with the SW wires (ie GPIO) if you have something that would be great :)

See here..

We only have support for the radios listed. These brands aren't listed as they have not been validated to work with our hardware.

Can you please advise if your hardware will give a simple switch output regardless of the radios used from the Ford Focus ST? I just need a SW output from the steering wheel.

It will not. It sends out whatever radio protocol you flash it for. Ex: If you pick a kenwood, it translates the sw button pushes into the kenwood protocol.
