Re: No ELM in Linux

Sounds like WINE and Forscan can't see the serial port. See http://forscan.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=5542

Re: Feature request: MAF sensor learning

For my vehicle Mazda BT-50 / Ford Ranger 3.0L I can initiate MAF sensor learning by accessing the DLC connector (that's the pre-CAN diagnostics connector in the engine bay) and shorting the TEN (Test ENgine) socket to GND five times (using a short jumper wire) within ten seconds. The connector socke...

Feature request: MAF sensor learning

Hello, Yesterday, I used FORScan for Windows for the first time. I corrected the fuel injector codes. FORScan also prevented me from mistyping the letter "D" as a number "0" and thereby entering a nonsense code - EXCELLENT. Looking at the Service Procedures, there is no MAF sensor learning task.
