The facelift model from 53 plate onward will have the trip computer on the LX. It became standard on all models. It will also have all the wiring in place if you need to add anything else to the car. (eg heated seats, front fog's etc.)

You will also find it will(should) have cruise control fitted. Yes I know all on a LX

All UK Mondeo's should have 2 LCD screens within the cluster. If you put these in test mode (hold down trip reset and start car) then you will be able to confirm that all of the characters are there within the left hand LCD display. Assuming this is the case, it should (hopefully) be possible to activate the computer.

All Mondeo's from 2003.75MY on have activated trip computer.

If the car has an "Info" button on the end of the indicator stalk, then it should have a computer.

Like I said, all have the capability (or should have) but only Ghia and above have it activated.

Early cars have some better kit, i.e. power rear windows on LX, two rear seat pockets instead of one. The climate control on Ghia up is not as good as on facelift cars, you loose the cruise control below Ghia X, and the door trim panels are not as nice. Also mirrors are smaller.

cheers flash, cruise control and climate control dont bother me anyway so no problems there nice to hear the trip thing should even be on the lesser models though, how much would one of these info buttons on a stalk cost if it was needed? anyone know? and is it an easy fit?

the info button is sat at the end of the indicator stalk i think ( same place as the front screen wash button on the wiper stalk )

the 2 LCD screens are the ones at the bottom of the dach cluster, one displays the full milage & trip milage the other one has the outside air temp on it.

Pic 1 is pointing out the LCD's ( i think its the one with the temp on it that gets used for the computer thingy )

Pic 2 just shows what i think the info button looks like ( its the front washer jet button )

Pic 3 shows my indicator stalk with no extra buttons on it ( with the info button it should look similar to the wiper stalk - pic 2 )

hope its the info you were after :L

Hey guys,

Replying here from the other end of the world. Singapore. We have the same problem here. All Mk3 Mondys sold here don't come with the Info stalk. Even though we have the LCDs available. So any headsup in locating the stalk for DIY would be helpful!
Thanks!

It is not just ther stalk mate, the cluster needs to be reprogrammed.
