Re: Support of J2534 (Pass-Thru) adapters in FORScan v2.2.*

I am new to FORScan as my wife's '13 C-MAX Energi just had a dead battery. I replaced it, but did not have means to reset the BMS. Luckily I saw on one modified ELM327 listing that you can try this in a "demo" mode and found the J2534 option. When first looking into Drew Technologies J2534 devices I was nervous to commit to an expensive CarDAQ Plus or CarDAQ M so I purchased a Toyota Mongoose Pro (blue) cable. I bought mine direct from Drew Technologies. I installed the driver on a Windows 10 (64-bit) computer that I haven't used FMP on. Then tried it with FORScan. At first it did not connect, but after selecting J2534 it did! I was so happy to find the BMS reset and reset it! Thank you!

I am interested in trying to enable the DRL function that is enabled on fleet vehicles. Will see what I can find with FORScan first. Still figuring where to buy an ELS27 to try with Focccus as well....

Feel free to let me know if I can help in any way!

What does the VCM-II bring to the table that an authentic Ford original VCM leaves out when using FORscan?

I have a Mac Mentor Touch with the Mac (Bosch)J2534 VCI and it works perfect over USB to use Forscan. Been using it for a couple of years now with no issues.
