Alarms when plugging ELM327 in 2019 F150

I'm having an issue with this particular ELM327: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07DFDXZT6/re ... rEb9V4D7GK

When I plug it in my 2019 F150, the following alarms pop up on my dash display: power train malfunction, restraints indicator lamp warning, electronic power steering fault, pre-collision assist not available, anti-lock break fault. And then I get some more errors on my touch screen such as: 911 call assist not available, and some others. When I flip the switch on the ELM327, my dash loses power and the touch screen blacks out.

I haven't even changed anything and cant get it to connect to forscan. I'm assuming this is a result of a bad ELM327?
