Re: obdlink mx bt windows 10 failed connection

If you have an Android phone have you tried to pair it with your phone so that you can check if the adaptor is working ok. You can download the Demo version for free. I bought my OBDLink MX adapter a few years ago (so it may not be exactly the same as yours) and it works fine with my Windows 10 comp...

Re: URGENT ! HELP ! Testing injectors.

If the 2008 model is the same as the later Mk 2's then unfortunately there are no PID's for the Injectors or Cylinder contribution.

Re: EGR opens at cold start

For the first few seconds the RPM jumps about a bit then it settles down ok. I have had this car for 8 years and when it was newer it started instantly without allowing the heater plugs to pre heat and settled down instantly, even in winter. Now I need to pre heat it otherwise it takes a few seconds...

Re: EGR opens at cold start

I double checked this morning.
FRP 32600 Kpa
RPM 792
MAF 7.80 g/sec (when warm it is normally around 5)
After a few seconds my EGRVP is around 50%
Outside temperature 10c

I have the later Euro V version of this engine and it has done 98,000 miles.
I hope this helps

Re: EGR opens at cold start

My 1.6 Diesel (later model) does exactly the same. As @steve44 says I think this is normal behaviour.

Re: Can't open dtc's that I download to my phone.

I'm not entirely sure but I don't think you can access saved data with FORScan Lite unless you are connected to a vehicle. I find it more convenient to take Screenshots or Screen Records of anything important. They say that any digital data that you need to keep is not safe unless it is backed up to...

Re: MAF sensor diagnose

That is not normal. It should read 0 when the engine is not running. I don't know the exact figures for your engine, but at tick over I would expect it to be somewhere around 6 or 7 and be steady, and rise to high double figures under extreme load. Hopefully someone with the same engine as you can c...

Re: Forscan Lite on Android / fuel rail pressure desired

I have the later Euro V version of the MK 2 Focus and there is no PID for Fuel Rail Pressure Desired. If there is a problem then the car should throw up a fault code and if it does so then it would be best to change your Fuel Filter before checking anything else. Ford's 3 year change interval is too...

Here is a link to the FORScan download page.

Re: DPF diffrence pressure

If you have not already worked it out here is a link to the FORScan documentation page, which should tell you what you need to know to get started.
