Shift light is turned off by the MP tunes (at least that is what I have read on other ST forums in posts made by Mountune representatives). I also don't really know what you are talking about with ecomode (unless it is those goofy leaf things that are in the display menu). Yes the Focus ST has those goofy little leaf things and a shift indicator light, but other than that there is nothing eco related that could be removed.
My leaf things are non-existent for "shifting" and full for "anticipation" and "speed." So I drive like an idiot but do 60 miles a day highway at consistent 60-80 depending on traffic flow haha. 27.1 computer MPG and 28.0 actual calculated at the pump.^^^What TS13FST said^^^Now, had you opted for a tune from someone other than Ford, you could have multiple maps, one of which could have been an economy map. There is no "Ecco Mode" from the factory.
Since when does the MP275 calibration turn off the shift light? My 2013 doesn't turn the light off running it, if anything it was completely unaffected by the calibration.I recently had the remap for the Mountune 275. In doing so I've noticed that the gear shift indicator has switched off, which I presume means the entire Ecco mode has been turned off? How do I switch it back on again, 'cause I need it for town driving?
This isn't really a "mode" at all, it is literally just monitoring your habits and reporting how "eco-friendly" you are behaving. The only way to get an eco "mode" as someone said before is to get a tune that has a designated "economy slot" which just limits boost to a lower number and really doesn't do anything because if you roll around at 7-15lbs (or whatever it's limited at) you'll get garbage gas mileage.The only "EcoMode" on the ST is the leaf thing you get when you push right on the menu from the MPG screen. This should still be on your car. It has no necessary correlation to the shift light. Ecomode basically has 3 segments (well, 4): shifting, anticipation, and speed. The shift light tries to tell you the ideal shift point for fuel economy and how well you do there is reflected on your shifting leaves. But like I said before, you can just shift at about 1800-2200 rpm every time you upshift and get the same effect. Anticipation basically measures how often you brake or accelerate, and how hard you accelerate. So to maximize this measurement you need to brake as rarely as possible and accelerate as slowly as possible (easier said than done). For speed, you just have to stay under 70mph - period. Every few seconds that you are under 70mph your score goes up, and every few seconds that you are over 70mph it goes down.
Hope this helps - note this is on my '13, I don't know how much it has changed since. One more side note as winter has hit - there is a hidden ecomode component called "cold start" (hidden on my '13 anyway). I have not found a ton of info on it but it seems to be related to running the car while it's cold. It seems like if you let the car idle for a few seconds (10-15 in my mild weather climate) before driving, the car will be happier.
It still monitors your driving habits and gives you a score for "eco-mode". Sport mode just turns off the factory traction control. ESC Off turns off traction control and stability control, neither stop the car from calculating fuel economy.This seems like a good place to ask since you guys are talking about eco mode or rather it's non existence. When you press the traction control button once, not holding, you enter "sport mode". Does that just mean it won't record your habits for "eco mode"?
