Odometer programming

Post by skotty » Thu Jan 16, 2020 1:11 am

Hey guys

I've been using Forscan for a while now and find it to be a absolutely fantastic piece of software, hats off to the creators its fantastic work!

A quick question I have, is there anyway that a odo can be re-written on a 2007 Ford BF Falcon? I wanted to change my cluster to a high-spec cluster on my BF Falcon however the replacement cluster is 52,000km highter than the car. (260,000km on the replacement cluster and 208,500 on the car) I'll happily pay for the ability to do so if need be.

Thanks guys!

Forscan can change the odometer only on a few popular, newer vehicles. There is not a master list that I have seen. Connect Forscan and see if there option is available. I seriously doubt it works on your 2007.

There are companies in the US that make this adjustment for about $100.

Thanks mate, when I've tried it it wont let me add a value unfortunately.

I think I can get it done over here in Aus for around $150aud just though I'd check on here first

Thanks for your reply.

Sorry for the late reply. For the handful of vehicles with odometer programming, FORScan only allows setting the number higher, never lower. This is to prevent fraud. Unfortunate, but necessary. You'll have to use a paid service in your area to lower the odometer value.

Since the odometer value is stored in multiple locations, it would be nice to have it allow either raising the value or setting it to what's in the ECU.
