Check my signature fella, theres a link there on a guide I wrote that will help to get you started
Basically it allows you to read pretty much every sensor it can access (so far I havent found anything it cant read, but then I havent got every ford ever made to test it with )
You can do thorough diagnostics (I helped my Auto Leccy identify an issue with my airbag resistance using this!) and read general error codes.
Read my thread, and if you have any questions, let me know!
James I downloaded your pdf and looks good to get me started.
The link is outdated for the elm usb cable. I was going to buy one I saw on ebay but I noticed you have "Modified elm cable" so the one I was looking at is maybe wrong. Can you link me to the correct one?
its easy enough to use it and more importantly its actively updated, id consider paying for it its so good and lets just say I don't usually pay for software!
there is quite a few folk on here that use it too so im sure there will always be someone about that can guide you, but it really is pretty easy going
definitely is worth its weight! it makes a nice change to find a free bit of software that works so well!
I agree fellas its nice to get software that is free but also that actually works well.
