Hey everyone,

Just curious if anyone in the forum has FORscan and if we could start compiling some As Built Data for those that are modifying their vans and wanting to add features that did not come from the factory.

If you have FORscan and a Transit, please respond to this thread and lets get the ball rolling.

Have it- haven't used it in awhile- need to refamiliarize myself with it.
Used it to reset my transmission learned parms to cure a harsh 5-4 downshift.

I have it and have made backups of all modules. I think I need to renew the key as I haven't used it in some time.

I found it super confusing to figure out what to change in order to defeat the 30 min timer on the 12v outlets and cargo lights.

So I have not made any modifications yet.

It would be nice if there was a template that offered english names for the various variables that can be changed. I have used ECU software for motorcycles that have those and it's much easier to use.

Some things you really don't want to mess with, but other stuff like timers, chimes, etc. seem like they are fine to alter on/off etc if the correct points can be labeled.

I'd be happy to help assist to develop this, but I'm not keen to brick my ECU(s).

This is the stock configuration file "printout" for my van.

I have forscan, the only thing I have changed so far the the mininum psi limit for my tires so I dont have to run such a high pressure since I dont have much weight in the van.

word on the wire

I've got a collection of matching window stickers and ASBuilt data for most of the MYs and with varying option packages. I've also matched them up with the module schematics by MY in the BEMM. That includes my 2015 and the 2019 that's due in next month. Interesting from an old school systems analyst perspective seeing the systems from a Euro auto transforming into a US a bit at a time.

The word on the wire was that FORScan wasn't functioning with some 2018s and there wasn't enough active interest on the FORScan form for them to take action. That was a while back though.

So with all of those variations it would be difficult, but not impossible to get somewhere with this.

I started using ForScan and found it super confusing. I think I got the basic understanding how to run it. Great on the Android showing things that Torque Pro doesn't, such as dpf status. But I want to use the PC to initiate dpf Regen and don't know how. Would appreciate anyone who knows to give me some pointers. Thanks.

Hands on verification

I got a ScanTool OBDLink LX Bluetooth: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00H9S71LW to use with ‎FORScan Lite on a the '19 t250. I was using a it with a low profile OBDII Y splitter cable: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00HJAMBI8 That combination was able to pull PIDs from both MS-CAN and HS-CAN with live data streaming over BT and no "switch to throw".

With that encouragement I got a BT dongle for the PC and a new copy of the FORScan 2.3.20 beta. I can verify that it could access the 2019 modules, but that's as far as I took it. Not having the "switch and wire" does make it more manageable.

FORscan for adjusting tire size

Hello-

I am new to FORscan. I am looking for a tool to adjust/calibrate speedometer for taller tire size. Can anyone confirm if the tool can accomplish this and how (ie adjust revs/mile)? Any tutorial (or link to one) on how to set up hardware/software for newby MUCH appreciated!

Nope forscan can't do it yet, haven't found any tool that has done it successfully yet. I don't know why they had to make it different from the truck line...

I finally got around to exploring ForScan some more, and found this setting.

Haven't experimented with changing it yet.

Some settings I have found that may be useful for some of the issues in various forum threads:
- enable DRL
- enable LED tailights
- change battery type to AGM
- change battery saver time
- change mirror type
- enable power step (may prove useful for entry/puddle light wiring)
- trailer wiring and trailer brake
- speed limitation
- change axle ratio (if you upsize tires and have a 3.73 or 4.10 axle, maybe you can correct the speedometer!) :D

These are the simple toggle settings, not as-built. That will be explored later :nerd:

I would love to know if the speedometer can be corrected, but my understanding is that it’s based on wheel rotation using a sensor mounted in the brake hub, not engine or transmission rpm’s. So unless someone finds a tire size setting, we are stuck.

Yes, I've since discovered that too. :(
Changing the axle ratio must just relate to shift points or something else. The one tire size setting allows you to select the narrower DRW 195/75 instead of 225/65 with no change in diameter or effective ratio.

I am curious though, what happens if you select not configured for tire size :nerd:

I'm by far a ForScan expert, but I finally did manage to figure out how to make a backup and how to change stuff!

Looking trough the options I found that most of the things you that you are able to change from a menu in the car already can be done in regular mode. You need to enable the engineering mode to make the more advance changes. I used to to disable the TPMS on my Transit so I could get rid of the warning light using the procedure highlighted in the manual. I could imitate the learning but none of the sensor would register. I just placed in it not configured and the light when away.

My Forscan stuff should be coming in today. I will post anything I learn. 1st question, what does "in engineering mode" mean?
That threw me off when I first saw it, so I had to come inside and google it. Click here for an article that was most helpful. 0:)

Engineering mode means you can modify parameters rather than just look at them in normal mode, there are two levels depending on how many parameters you want to explore. I'm still learning too, but there are great discussions for most questions you may have. :nerd:

Also, note to all who fool with this: be SURE to use the save button before any changes. That allows you to reload if something goes awry. A certain newbie thought he had saved something properly only to discover that it was the wrong file.

The same guy then apparently had a glitch while writing new parameters which rendered the vehicle unstartable, dead in the water. :eek:
Fortunately after multiple efforts, google searches and a good night's sleep, though the problem was still there, a light bulb went off:
That guy just happened to have sitting right next to his Transit another wagon close to identical in configuration and he realized that if the other van's profile was saved and then loaded into the disabled one, it might work and bingo! back in business with a few tweaks. :nerd:

The other good news is that said tinkerer figured it out and got things right moments before his spouse took the "good" wagon out of town for a few days.

Towing the dead wagon to the dealer and explaining would have been downright embarrassing! >:D

He asked not to have his identity spread all over the forum but there aren't too many here tinkering with two wagons at a time...:D

Remember:
