I have changed my Android device to iOS one or vice versa. How can I transfer the purchase? How long do the review and approval take? Why is the manual approval required instead of automated one?
I'm unable to login after 24 hours after registration, what's wrong? I have reset my password but still cannot login, why? General What car brands and models are supported? Absolute majority of Ford, Mazda, Lincoln and Mercury models starting from model year are supported.
Exception are quite rare: models unified with other manufacturers, for example Ford Galaxy Mk2. Models manufactured before usually have diagnostic interfaces not supported by ELM However, there are exceptions too. No other brands are supported yet. Support for other brands is planned but not in the near future. The protocol is quite limited. FORScan works on another level and uses the same principles as professional and dealership scanners.
This is a conceptual difference that determines the project development strategy. We are not limited with protocol and spend majority of our efforts to extend core functionality. As a result, FORScan may be less convenient and nice-looking than other products, but gives more power to the users.Log in or Sign up. Ford Raptor Forums. Help Support Ford Raptor Forum by donating:.

This is great news for anyone doing an upgrade because it makes everything so much easier, and I think has more potential for a better sounding system. I'll tell you how I discovered it, and that will help you understand why there is still some work to do on this.
I was doing my upgrade the conventional way, tapping the speaker level outputs to feed into a processor. A puff of smoke came out of the dash and I almost died :O So I ordered a replacement ACM which took over a month to get, but that's another story and installed it myself. I had been told that the ACM needs to be programmed by the dealer before it will work, but I decided to try it out and see if it would just work out of the box, or if maybe I could just program it myself with Forscan. The replacement ACM came with factory Forscan settings that were very different from my originals.
Long story short, I realized that I was getting a full-range, variable line level signal from the tweeter output of the ACM. The only quirks I have noticed are that the volume is not displayed on the screen, and the Sync voice volume varies with the system volume and so may be much louder than usual, depending on how the amp gain is set. Also the fader and EQ controls are disabled, but I would kinda expect that anyway. Other than that, the signal is very clean and the system sounds fantastic.
I scanned the ACM with Forscan and found that there are a lot of differences between this one and the original one. I don't know which ones are necessary to make this mod work, but I assume it's not all of them. Since they system is working the way I want, I have decided to leave it alone for now and not make any more changes in Forscan. At least we know the mod is possible, and we can narrow the necessary codes down to a few lines in Forscan.
Worst case, you could make all of the changes and it should work. I'm sure someone will do more research and figure out which ones really need to be changed and how to work out the quirks.

My buddy at the dealer says not to mess with anything related to the ACM. Changing the start up screen is in the ACM. If they plug into the system it will show it's modified.
Not so much the other modules in the car unless they are looking directly at one you've changed. That could be a warranty issue. I don't have the truck yet but it should either have the auto fold in the settings menu and if not it should be able to be enabled with Forscan.
I installed power folding mirrors in my Fusion and enabled all of that. ToothRanger Well-Known Member. Vehicle Showcase 1. I'll start messing with some of the normal stuff and see what you can and can't enable with out manually changing the as built data tonight.
ToothRanger said:. I didn't come across that option in my Lariat. Last edited: Feb 27, I was thinking the same. Just checked the forscan forums and it looks like some of the guys from here are having trouble even connecting to the truck, something about VIN not recognized That could be my post over there,thats the message I got on forscan and I havent had a chance to mess with it since.
Looks like it is still a no go on the Forescan.By liamstearsNovember 27, in Ford Fiesta Club. Recently fit a sat nav and screen to my fiesta and programmed it in, so far all seems to be working well but couple bits not quite right Have enabled rear camera, have not connected it yet but expected the screen to blank but it doesn't?
Is this just down to programming not quite right in Forscan? Maybe I missed something? I changed to with Navigation, changed to MFD 5. Well it seems to mean that the audio control module is incompatible, does everything work correctly except the camera? Even tries my old CD player bit see if that made a difference but it didn't still got the error code. I found a post that may provide some more information, it is about bluetooth but might still help, here is a quote from the post.
So it seems something is not configured correctly even though it works, could you maybe try clearing the code and see if it comes back, although I'm not too sure whether that would work.
Been looking into this everywhere and noticed the parts I bought to upgrade to sat nav included an acm with the part number AM5T but the one I removed was also AM5T, looking around though every sat nav set I found comes with an acm with the part number E1BT.
So decided to buy one with a part number of E1BT which I should have tomorrow so will swap it out and see if it fixes the acm error Everything seems to be set right but I get the DTC and no camera? Had Sat Nav SD card v4. Problem I have now is when I connect up the camera I have it doesn't display properly, just a bit of a faded iffy picture as if the camera is not sending the right signal or something You can post now and register later.

FORScan with OBDLink MX+ not reading all Modules
Posted November 29, I found a post that may provide some more information, it is about bluetooth but might still help, here is a quote from the post "The U DTC code suggests that the FCDIM is not correctly configured. Posted November 30, AngelDeath Well-Known Member.
The top link is the Bluetooth version I purchased, the second link is the WiFi version. The rest of this guide I cannot take credit for, its from a user on another forum for a completely different ford car, but yet alot of the codes are similar across the fleet. This guide was made by "DanMc85" All credit goes to him for this guide and getting me started to look. So read the Guide and lets help one another out! All I want from posting this guide if Idont find it myself is how to stop the fog lights from turning off when you signal, thats more then a thank you for me.
As you can see you can modify As-Built Data on just about any module to accomplish different tasks. These manual discoveries can be very time consuming Thus some changes could have a monetary charge by the person offering the mod or some ask for a donation in the amount of your choosing to continue to support the countless hours spent to discover these mods.
As a fellow forum member, I find it truly great when we work together to discover new computer mods or take risks to try and see what does what, knowing very well they could mess something up. Most of these changes are easily reversible.
Thus you can easily change something back if you make an invalid or incorrect change. If you start the vehicle, with invalid or incompatible settings, it is possible to screw something up. As long as a module does not loose network connection to the CAN bus you can always change the data back. I have made countless changes messing with modules and have yet to cause an issue I couldn't put back.
The team is located in Russia, so keep the time zone change in mind. As it can in some cases take easily 24 hours before your access gets approved. I have heard of some getting approved within 2 hours, especially during the evening here in the USA. Once you have done this, install FORScan on your laptop or tablet.
