Enabling reverse camera on a 2015 Ford Fiesta 1.0 Ecoboost with Sync 1.1 (4" display)

Post by FSeixasPT »

Hi there,

I'm trying to activate the reverse camera on my 2015 Ford Fiesta with Sync 1.1 (4" screen). I have used Forscan before to change some settings and activate automatic door locking when the car is moving, which I did successfully, but I've been unable to activate the reverse camera.

From what I've found, this should be changed in the AS BUILT configuration:
FCDIM Basic Sync w/4" Display
7A5-01-01 x0xx xxxx xxxx Reverse camera disabled
7A5-01-01 x2xx xxxx xxxx Reverse camera enabled
However, I don't have an FCDIM module on Forscan. I've read somewhere that it could also be enabled in APIM, which I do have, but changing the second digit doesn't seem to make any difference in the car's behavior when I put it into reverse. My default values are:
APIM
7D0-01-01 01BF 8840 0263
I don't have the camera itself installed, but from my understating the car should display some sort of error message or blank screen when I put it into reverse if the camera is correctly enabled in Forscan. I've been unable to do this.

My screen has a 12-pin connector, to which the camera must be connected in pins 6 and 12. This is the harness I need (but I'm building it myself since this one is $60 (I can build it for around $1) and doesn't ship to Europe):

Any tips?

Thanks a lot!

I was way overthinking it. There's a reverse camera enable/disable option in the Central Configuration, no need to mess with the As Built.

Well, I just noticed that pins 6 and 12 on the display connector are already wired. Does anyone know where those wires go? Maybe there's an easier way to wire the camera other than behind the display.

Your Fiesta is probably pre-wired for a reverse camera. Look for an unused connector in the rear hatch. Check continuity with the connectors unplugged because the wire color probably changes as through various harnesses.

Pin 6 and 12 on the FCDIM should only be for the camera video signal. The wiring for my vehicle (not a Fiesta) shows FCDIM pin 6 blue, pin 12 green and the camera pin 4 blue and pin 3 violet/green, pin 6 black (shield).

Hi guys, would you know where to get the female connector for this harness? Thank you.

Olá Anderson,

A questão é o seguinte: A tela que você utilizou é original do Ford Focus. Neste, os avisos são exibidos no IPC (Painel de Instrumentos) e não na tela do Sync. Este fato é importante de ser lembrado, pois a tela saiu de fábrica calibrada pra funcionar desta forma.

Com a calibração necessária para o Fiesta, talvez possa funcionar, mas antes de qualquer coisa, o módulo precisa ser identificado pelo scanner e os arquivos de calibração para o Fiesta precisam ser instalados. Na minha opinião, creio que não valha todo o trabalho de reprogramar e alterar a calibração deste módulo FCDIM, exceto se vc for entusiasta e tiver conhecimento suficiente pra proceder com esse tipo de programação.

Seus links estão "quebrados", o pessoal aqui do fórum não conseguiu ver qual tela está se referindo. Uma boa prática por aqui seria o uso do inglês (mesmo que com tradutor) e usar também os part numbers dos módulos, para facilitar a identificação. Espero que tenha evoluído em seu projeto.
