Re: Attention - bad clone of ELS27

I will get one from the els27.ru site once I confirm that it is the best option around. Cheapest clone ELS27 is about $36. Well worth it another $35 for the real deal, which they are currently on version3?...

Re: Where to buy a compatible adapter?

It seems the best is ELS27? Would this be the most reliable connection?

I think this is the correct site to purchase a real/original one: els27.ru ?

or is

VCM II still better?

I am interested in working on all makes, not just Ford/Lincoln/Mercury.

Thank you!!!

Re: CalibrationFiles folder

C:\Users\Insert your windows user id here\Documents\CalibrationFiles\

The files should be there. I copied all of them there.

Re: CalibrationFiles folder

You have to create it and move/copy the files there. The format/location is as I noted. It is not in Downloads, it is in Documents.

C-MAX settings success!

DRL activation: There were 3 settings under BdyCM (Main). Original setting was something like "Dipped except in p", which there is no DRL. Set to "Standard dipped..." turned them on. Tire size calibration: Saw the tire size setting and took a peek. Nice Ford has provided quite a few available tire s...

Re: 2013 and on Ford Escape "fleet mode" DTRL disable

If it helps any I found the setting in

BdyCM (Main)

on my wife's '13 C-MAX Energi (USA/NA version)

I switched from "Dipped except for in p" or something like that, to "Standard...."

and my wife's car seems to now have DRLs!

Yes! Thank you FORScan team!!!!

Re: CalibrationFiles folder

I had to figure this out this morning. When you get the error, look carefully at where FORScan is looking for the file. Create the folder in that location and extract the files there. Mine was either of these two C:\Users\Zeno Chen\Documents\CalibrationFiles\ *most likely or C:\Users\Zeno Chen\Downl...

Re: Support of J2534 (Pass-Thru) adapters in FORScan v2.2.*

I am new to FORScan as my wife's '13 C-MAX Energi just had a dead battery. I replaced it, but did not have means to reset the BMS. Luckily I saw on one modified ELM327 listing that you can try this in a "demo" mode and found the J2534 option. When first looking into Drew Technologies J2534 devices I...
