I pretty new using this software and trying to diagnose problems in this manner.  That said, I have ElmScan5 USB with Scan XL running.  Car is a 1999 Mercury Grand Marquis. I am able to connect, the program says that it is reading the VIN number, but I don't see it when I select Vehicle Manager.

Next, I am trying to trouble-shoot the PCM (I have a no-start pretty sure I'm not getting fuel), and need to read the FPF PID.  In trying this I find that I cannot see ANY of the FORD PIDs.  I can see the SAE PIDs.

I am either doing something wrong in operating the software, or maybe this is telling me the PCM is bad?

I appreciate any help.

The ford PID's are an extra that can be purchased, but if you have purchased them the option to connect to them is under the OBD II  settings area accessible from the settings tab.


Ive never actually used the Ford codes because I havent paid for them, but I see the option there. 

cheers

Thanks, I was afraid of that.
