Re: Anybody using ABS features for brake bleeding?

As @mplieb commented to me via PM (and which I only just saw, apologies again mplieb!) FORScan doesn't yet have ABS bleed implemented for his model vehicle. May be the same for you...

Do you see MSCAN and HSCAN protocols supported in the FORScan Modules page when you're live connected to the vehicle?

Re: Where to buy a compatible adapter?

I bought this adapter recently to cycle the ABS pump on my Mk. 7 (MY16) Fiesta ST and it worked perfectly. Described on Amazon as "Dailyinshop ELS27 FORScan OBD2 USB Scanner". Shopped around quite a lot to find a convincing looking adapter which was described as using an STN1170 chipset. YMMV of cou...

Re: Anybody using ABS features for brake bleeding?

Sorry for not replying sooner. I specifically went for an ELS27 because it stated full support for both MS- and HS-CAN. There's a good post on here: https://forscan.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=6142 This has a long table of various adapters, compatible protocols etc. The key is having an STN11xx ra...

Re: Anybody using ABS features for brake bleeding?

AIUI you need to have an OBD adapter compatible with HS- and MS-CAN. If you do, the ABS Service Bleed option will appear in the Service menu. I bought this OBD adapter as it said it was STN1170 compatible (with MS-CAN support). Almost certainly a knockoff of a 'legit' adapter, but ended up working f...

Re: Disable Annoying Sync Voice Prompts

I've always understood it to be a function of the SYNC software which isn't defeatable. If you use USB to access media on the iPhone to play through the head unit it'll always index the files. I had the same problem on my Android phone when I tried it; I quickly gave up and switched to Bluetooth. If...

Re: Anybody using ABS features for brake bleeding?

Thanks Greg, it does. Do you tend to go one wheel at once or do you do one axle at a time? [edit] ran the ABS module bleed procedure twice (one for each front wheel), no issues. I did manage to run the car battery flat though, through a combination of leaving the ignition on for over an hour and pos...

Anybody using ABS features for brake bleeding?

Hello, Anybody using FORScan successfully to actuate the ABS module while bleeding brakes on 2013-2016 Focus/Fiesta, and can report any particular issues or things they've noticed? Any caveats using certain adaptors with recent Fords? I understand when a garage does an IDS ABS Service Bleed, they're...
