OTKEFDI ELM327
PIC18F2480 with FTDI Chip

Didn't a CD come with it? If it didn't, contact their "support" page and get the drivers for the FTDI Chip.
Install the drivers and try again.

Thank you for your help and input. I'm getting closer but still seem to be struggling to get everything in place to function properly.

Any additional help is appreciated!

Thank you,
Dave

The image is an example of the DLC (Data Link Connector)

As you look at the connector on the Ford, PIN 16 must be battery power at all times.
Use a test light or voltmeter to measure the voltage on that PIN.
If there is no voltage, find the corresponding fuse that may be illustrated in the owners manual.
Use the next image to locate the fuse.
