goto the trip reset , press and hold as if to reset keep holding , press the start button but do not put your foot on the clutch , keep holding until gauge test comes up , then you can scroll through :)

Im glad that they kept this one feature through the range to be honest, its a fantastic function! I think Ford did it to make the owners worry when they get a DTC, so that they rush the car to the dealers :P but they probably didnt think about us lot on this forum abusing it and sharing the answers and eating their commission :P

Don't think there is , only via the actual test mode , ELMConfig does not do this either.

the only time the gauge sweeps on start up is if the battery is low
