Re: OBD Scan Tools Info / Data

FORScan Overview FORScan is primarily Windows-based but an IOS version is being test driven. They say that they will have an android version. All the PID coding/scaling is internalized; basically plug and play. Once the software identifies the FFE and you provide the model year, it polls all the mod...

OBD Scan Tools Info / Data

I'm starting a new thread here to consolidate information we have on OBD scanners that is spread through several threads. I plan on editing this first post as information becomes available so that new owners can get up to date easier. Scanners (confirmed to work with the Focus Electric): ScanGauge L...

Re: Error with computing Wh/mi and energy used

I think Unplugged's right. I bought a voltage monitor that plugs into the cigarette lighter thinking that I could monitor the 12V battery by peeking in the window and not having to pop the hood. No such luck - it times out.

Re: obd2 scan devices

Yeah - I bought my MX Bluetooth through Amazon. The Wifi model will probably show up at Amazon with a pretty good price compared the regular price at Scantool.net, but the -$20 Preorder special may be hard to beat (unless Amazon gets in on the preorder). The Wifi option sounds interesting (I think t...

Re: obd2 scan devices

Yes; FORScan is the only software that I found that works (with a reasonably priced elm327). I'm planning on posting some of what I've found out so far, probably over the weekend. HybridBear, et al - when someone else here starts getting FORScan data I'd like to get some baseline data to compare wit...

Re: obd2 scan devices

Or you could assume that since the OBDLink-MX works on my FFE it will work on yours,... :geek:
Note that the software they suggest/offer will not work.

Re: wrench displays when starting

EVSE shutdown doesn't seem like a problem. I have my L1 EVSE plugged into a switched outlet on a timer (we all know how poorly value-charging works on L1). No yellow wrenches, no problems with cruise control.

Re: obd2 scan devices

The MyFordMobile discussions that EVA refers to have a bunch of hybrid information that doesn't apply to the FFE. It appears that the FFE is "mostly" compliant, but that most software (eg Torque, OBDWiz, ...) return an error (trying to access a PID that is common to all ICE cars???). The only confir...

Re: Anyone driving in L for extended periods seeing better r

Don't forget about aerodynamic drag,... I'll use the roller coaster technique in our low traffic/ 30mph zones (plenty of those in the mountains of Tn), but at some point the losses due to increased drag will outweigh the inefficiency of the regen. I suspect that at highway speeds it's generally a wa...
