Disconnect once I press the "play" record button

I have both the PC and my android phone with forscan lite. they both connect to my car fine. Once i start the car and press the record play button, they both disconnect saying make sure the ignition is on. Tried many times and they both do the same thing. The ELM was used successfully on newer fords with no problem. My car is a 1998 mustang. Does this sound like an ELM problem or the car's computer isn't properly signalling to the ELM that the car is on? Searched the forum and nothing turned up specifically, but apologize is this has been covered
