Re: Mk7.5 ST (2012-2019) alarm intermittent sounding, possible to read sensor diagnostics from activations?

You could hot wire the sensor until you can do a proper fix unless you are worried about someone opening your bonnet. I fitted a new cheap aftermarket latch complete with sensor to my Focus and had no problems with it. I replaced it because it was stiff though not because of Alarm problems. Best to ...

Have a look in the BCM, (it is sometimes called GEM in some cars) and there should be a PID that tells you what triggered the Alarm the last 4 times.

Re: ELM327 connection to forscan on android

When you get the list of available PID's are you clicking the box to the left of them?. Your screenshot looks like you are clicking the box to the right which gives the details but does not load them.

Re: FORScan 2.3.27

2.3.28 has now been released. I believe many people were having the same problem with 2.3.27.

Re: PCM - ECC - high, medium, low performance setting?

Just a guess but maybe cars built for different parts of the world have different settings depending on what the climate is like in the country that they are intended for.

Re: mondeo mk4.5 dpf regen issue

Maybe an Exhaust Temperature Sensor is giving a wrong reading. Have you had a look at Live Data to see. I'm not sure how many Exhaust Gas Temperature Sensors there are or what PID's are available in FORScan for that car, but for my 1.6 Tdci there was only one listed and that was for the Pre Particul...

Re: Dpf regen

There should also be a PID for Particulate Filter Temperature. On my MK2.5 is called PPFT.

During regeneration on my car it went up very quickly from it's normal temperature to 500 to 600 C.
