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

Is there a way to do the gauge sweep on start up or is that verging into elm config

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