Re: How to program PATS using FORScan v2.3.*

The procedure seem pretty straight forward, my question is about the outcode/incode part; does ForScan auto generate the codes for my model year, or do I need to be prepared with an external website code generator? The one that I found referenced, autokeyprog.com, is no longer a valid site. Can som...

Successful programming of key on Focus 2010

Sorry about the video quality I didn't have a cameraperson so I had to shoot this while holding the phone in one hand and running the laptop in the other, but everything is there to show you how it's done.

Re: Tried to Disable Canadian Restrictions and now TPMS wont work.

You might need to buy the TPMS tool this is usually a magnet or something that gets placed over each sensor tire stem to put them into learn mode. The last time I bought tires I had them replace ALL TPMS sensors. These sensors have batteries that don't last more than 5-10 years. So now if I accident...

OBDLINK® EX adapter on sale

I just noticed on their website they are having a sale on their adapters until the 24th of this month. I've used PC-based OBD-II programs for years now from multiple makers and I've got a couple of cheap adapters. Mostly they work. But it is that "mostly" that is the sticking point. If you...

Re: ELM327-compatible adapters - how to choose

You really have 2 choices, gnosis 1) Buy one of the "supported/tested" adapters in the 3 links from the 2018 post. Those makers are very very aware of referrals from this site and they work to make their products compatible and support every option. 2) Go to Ebay and buy the cheapest ELM32...

Re: Problem with a Chinese 1.5 Elm adapter - video

It's not a big deal. As shown in the video this adapter does work with my 2003 Focus and Forscan without having to diddle with the settings. I generally carry this adapter around in the glovebox of my 2003 Focus. I use it with my Android phone running the free Piston program. That car has around 160...

Problem with a Chinese 1.5 Elm adapter - video

I posted this to YouTube you are all welcome to use it, and if Forscan wants to use it on their site as an example they are welcome to.
