You may not have the latest 7bug software on your ecu and that will need updating first

A quick call to Jared or Carl at DS will sort it out in a jiffy though

I'm not to sure myself as I have never used ds but doesn't that mean the person you bought it from did not return the car to stock? Someone else will confirm this or just ring ds.

the handset is set to stock .....

so do you mean my pcm software needs updating ...

because that was someting i wondered ,i have acess to ford ids so i can upgrade my pcm
If its a fully reset handset then its the only thing I can think as to why the handset wont upload the maps, best thing to do is check what software is on your ECU and then update it to the latest version if it is an older version.

Same thing happened to me. Nothing to worry about. You'll have to send the handset in to DS so that they can update the software on the handset. Costs £60. I had to do it on 2 handsets.
