Hello everyone! Just found out that the C-Max is able to park itself with the front sensors. 

Is it just as simple as adding the sensors in front and then hooking it into the panel underneath the climate control? Or is it not possible to add this after the fact.

 

Thanks in advance!

Not quite that simple.  You have to change as-built data in several modules like the IPC module, PAM module and the BCM (assume this module does auto parking), add the sensors and a front sensor wiring harness.   One can change as built data with ForScan.  Of course you need to know what data to change in appropriate modules.  A quick search shows these videos as examples.

I'm familiar with ForScan, I've got the parts for that. I was thinking that you would just be able to add the sensors and the harness to the buttons under the climate control. The hardest part is probably just figuring out what specific settings need updated. 

 

MFT lists it in the diagnostics mode so it'll be interesting to experiment.

When I look at Ford parts there appears to be a different wiring harness for vehicles with and without the automated parking system.

 

It looks like you would need a harness for the front sensors that plugs into each sensors and into connector C144 ( 6 wires) that looks to be part of the factory wiring harness on the lower left front end.  .These 6 wires then run to a connector C238 near the BCM under the right dash which then run to the Parking Aid Module connector C1014B in the rear of the car.  It also appears that 4 wires from PAM run in a factory wiring harness to the IPC switch assembly.  

  

So, unless you happen to have the correct factory wiring harness for automated parking, I wouldn't want to tackle this. :)

Thanks for your help! I spend last night looking at Ford parts and couldn't find it. Just sounds easier to go without unfortunately.

On parts.ford.com look up part 14290 for your 2013 and you will see the wire assemblies.  You can look to see if you have the connectors I mentioned above to see which wire assembly you have. Also, see these links below.

Hey, at least the wiring harnesses are cheap lol. Good to know for the future. But yeah, definitely beyond my level of skill.

 

Thanks for all of your help!
