Best code scanner

Recommended Posts


Been having a few issues with my ford focus and would like to save a bit of money having to pay dealer to fix issues.

What is the best affordable scanner and software? do you guy have links of where to buy these from as I have seen chats of some being a waste of time.


Thanks all

The very, very best that you can get for a Ford (excluding the main dealers equipment) is the software FORScan and it's free for use on a windows laptop, or £7 for use on a mobile phone.

You will need an adapter (not free) which depends on what you are using.

FORScan: https://forscan.org/download.html

vLinker FS (laptop use): https://www.amazon.co.uk/Vgate-vLinker-Adapter-FORScan-MS-CAN/dp/B0952P4MLP

vLinker FD (android use): https://www.amazon.co.uk/vLinker-FD-Bluetooth-Diagnostic-Scanner/dp/B0BLJM5QJH/ref=sr_1_3?crid=1O1OEWZAR5QYP&keywords=vLinker%2BFD&qid=1694979731&s=automotive&sprefix=vlinker%2Bfd%2Cautomotive%2C87&sr=1-3&th=1

Please note that the phone versions can not make programming changes. They read all of the Ford DTC's and can reset service indicators and clear fault codes.
