Re: 2000 f150 questions about Cluster Swaps and FORScan

While you wait for your ELM 327, you can read the sticky forum posts on changing As Built data. Also download the F-150 spreadsheet. The 2000 and 2001 instrument clusters may be almost the same and you may be able to plug-n-play. You can see the configuration differences by downloading the As Built ...

Re: auto climate in Transit

You may be able to install some hardware to convert the voltage signals to the proper levels. This may be the easiest solution because there may different programming in the module(s) and good luck getting that changed (Forscan can't update firmware). I would investigate if some relays could be conf...

Re: Battery type question

I also upgraded my battery to an AGM-type (2016 Transit Connect). I disabled BMS because I don't think it is ideal for an AGM. I did not have an AGM battery option in Forscan. I have been monitoring the charge voltage and current and I think the non-BMS option is best for this battery in my vehicle....

Re: fuel gallons us / uk option gone

I have no idea why it was set to UK. You may have to change the setting in multiple modules, IPC and BCM most likely. Do some searching. I don't remember where I saw this or what vehicle it applied to.

Re: Key programing

Check your owners manual. If you have 2 original keys you may be able to program new keys without Forscan. I can do this on my 2016 Transit Connect (similar to Focus).

Re: No power after discontenting battery

Now it appears your battery is weak. Have you charged it or measured the voltage?

Re: help for central configuration

Look at the options in BCMii (main). I do not think your request is possible.

Re: help for central configuration

There is no central Configuration tab. CC changes are made in BdyCM (main). If you can't see this module, your ELM is probably not working and not reading the MS Can.

Re: Cruise control retrofit Focus 2016 HELP

You should be able to activate it in BdyCM (main). Focus uses central Configuration, not "as built" to make most changes. See the sticky posts on CC.
