Cannot connect to 2010 Escape

Post by avandyke246 »

as the title says im having issues connecting to my escape. Either it cant read the pcm or gets hung on trying to read the vehicle info. i tested with another software and it informed me that the voltage from the vehicle was too low which forscan was reporting 3.2 volts from the vehicle. i checked fuses and everything else and can't narrow it down. Gonna try to get ahold of a multimeter to check the thing. Using the obdlink ex adapter recommended by the team.

Are you able to start the engine?
