Without it supporting both HS and MS-Can you will only get a few modules and not all of them. Forscan is built to cover a number of possibilities and different options so always worth making sure you have the right option selected for the OBD Reader

i bought usb adapter with ms/hs switch, it can read all my ford focus modules, but whenever i tried programming modules its always throw message " service procedure is interrupted ". could it be because of bad clone adapter ? if i buy vcm2 adapter, will it work with forscan ?

Hi,


I'm having troubles to connect ELM327 v1.5 adapter with Ford Mondeo 2.0 TDCi 110kW.

FORScan connects with the adapter but doesn't with the car.

I have access to the car with ScanMaster-ELM program (Version 2.1, Build: 771).

I am trying to follow this guide to enable Navigation in Sync2 software (I need to change value in APIM Module. Will I need extended licence for that?).

Does anybody have any suggestions or should I buy the same adapter as it is in the guide?

Thank you for any help.

Some info:

OS: WIN10 Pro 64bit
Adapter chip: PL-2303 XA / HXA
FORScan report: ADAPTER: ELM327 v1.5, Unable to connect to vehicle...

I bought this one for $19, and it has good reviews. I didn't know about the issues and hadn't checked the boards until now.

The issue I'm having is it won't show more than changing the language. I can check various things about the car, but this seems to be something that's missing. I'm not sure if it's the programming settings or the device. I'll have to check the first details listed in the original post. I also tried to see look up the door code, but it didn't show those options.

Hi, I have an XTYDIAG Chinese clone that works perfectly while I don't have an extended license. When placing the extended license, stop reading DTC. Shouldn't it be the same with or without a license?
