    I'm not super familiar with the limitations of forscan, but I would imagine it could be done. However, it would take someone with the software to investigate and create a patch plus you would have to visit the dealer to have it applied.

    Basically what this guy would do:

    I would love to have the double honk disabled on the Fiesta :)

    I'm targeting a low cost, plug and play solution with no factory wiring modifications that can be installed in minutes with no special tools.

    In for options. I like the idea of a simple solution on this. Is it still a possibility to have "normal" (all the nannies on) more selectable with this, or is it just sport and all off? Just wondering as with all the snow and such and snow tires on, it's nice to have some esc assistance. also if anyone else drives the car, they're not freaked out when there's lights on the dash on a new car.

    Thanks for stepping up to do this!

    You will be able to select 'ESC ON' by cycling through the modes:

    VEHICLE START
    Mode: On
    MOD TURNS SPORT ON AUTOMATICALLY
    Mode: Sport
    [SINGLE ESC OFF PRESS]
    Mode: ESC OFF
    [SINGLE ESC OFF PRESS]
    Mode: On

    If I end up doing the remote selector I'll include a default 'ON' function as well. Yeah you're right, this would be helpful in climates with extended periods of bad weather. This way you could keep ESC On by default and you would still be able to cycle though the modes and select ESC OFF using a single press instead of holding down for 5 seconds.

    Ohh and maybe a 'Valet' mode that would disable the ESC OFF button all together using the remote switch... that would be nice if you are letting someone borrow the car... well now I think I'm going to have to source a stealth selector switch

    Thanks for the input, always welcomed!

    Fair enough.

    Thought I would post an update on the progress since there does seem to be a bit of interest in the project (glad its not just me!)

    After some of the feedback I've been looking into a selector function to set the default mode. This would allow the end user to select the default mode to suit their need. Some use cases:

    During summer I want ESC off as my default
    During winter months I want full nannies
    I want sport mode as my default but want the ability to set ESC OFF as the default for track days

    So originally I was considering a separate switch or on-board selector to change modes but then it kinda hit me. The Arduino has built in EEPROM! Basically like a tiny hard drive that will save values when you turn the board off. This will allow a value to be saved that will be read on startup to determine the mode selection used (no physical switch required). So we could set the default mode using the ESC OFF button that will be saved for the next startup! Here is my thought on how to activate/set the default mode:

    Set sport mode (dash light on)
    Hold down ESC OFF for 10 seconds to enter programming mode (dash light turns off)
    Press the ESC OFF to set default mode based on the following:
    1 press = ESC ON (full nannies)
    2 press = Sport Mode
    3 press = ESC OFF
    4 press = Can I borrow your car? / Dealership mode(see below)
    Mode is set after 5 second timeout
    Dash light blinks number selected
    Dash light off to confirm programming mode exit

    Can I borrow your car / dealership mode:
    This mode will disable your ESC button for situations like loaning your car to a friend. Or when you take the car in for service to ensure the dealer techs don't have too much fun without your consent. (Bonus points of the service writer notes a defective ESC button on your service order!) Dealership mode can be disabled by setting the default mode again during the first minute the car has been started, or something like that.

    I've got most of the programming done at this point but I'm sure there will be some additional tweaks once its installed for testing. This project is turning out to be a lot of fun so stay tuned for updates! Thanks to all who've subbed, asked questions and given feedback! As always, I welcome any suggestions, community involvement makes a better final product for everyone!

    Very nicely done! That just answered every question I could have asked about this. I'm interested in one, possibly as the kit, more than likely as an assembled unit.
    Kudos!
