Its a ebay seller from China. I didn't take a screen shot. Anyone here have a 2015 escape titanium that I can just copy the apim setting? My escape isa 2015 titanium. It was the top of the line at that time.First thing is it would appear you have a cheap ELM327. What make is it.
What make and model did the sync 3 screen come from. They are not just plug and play.
Did you take a back up or a screen shot of your sync 2 APIM settings.
Going by the error it's not an ELM 327 based device- it says "Adapter: STN1170 v3.3.1 .... counterfeit STN chip". The STN chip is what the OBDLink interfaces use, they're backwards compatible with the ELM commands. It shouldn't have the MS / HS bus issues or a switch. ( This says the real STN1170 is compatible with Ford MS CAN Bus.)First thing is it would appear you have a cheap ELM327. What make is it.
If I replace my sync 3 back to my sync 2 will I be able to get the asbuilt? then put back the sync 3 and upload it? Just wondering.Am sorry to tell I don't have experience with any of this. I just wanted the sync 3 for car play and there was a obd reader that came with the sync 3 update so I downloaded the forscan and it showed the DTC. Will holding the brake and gas firmly reset it ? I was able to reset the BSM using the forscan. It still show the same dtc error. Any one here have a escape 2015 titanium with navigator that I can copy the apim setting or asbuilt?Thanks for all the help!
So you bought a kit with all the parts- did they offer programming of them to suit your vehicle? Some sellers do.there was a obd reader that came with the sync 3 update
That would be DanMc85 on G2Fusion.So you bought a kit with all the parts- did they offer programming of them to suit your vehicle? Some sellers do.
Try searching the internet for "program sync3 sync2" and you'll get lots of hits with info on how to do it. I recall one guy from a Fusion forum has a website and will do it for a fee.
Ok so the first thing you need to do if you are going to do any programming with Forscan is get yourself a decent OBD device. The OBDLink EX is recommended by Forscan and is quite cheap in your country. The second option is an ELM327 made by OHP. I wouldn't buy anything else at the price or less.If I replace my sync 3 back to my sync 2 will I be able to get the asbuilt? then put back the sync 3 and upload it? Just wondering.
I have tried a dozen times to get the global windows to work on my 2016 se and no luck!!!! what procedure/setting did you use? also what does turning off the halogen drl's do? I have managed to change my themes, bambi and a few others but i can not for the life of me get the global windows to work!!2016 se. So far I've turned off the halogen drl's, changed sync 3 theme to Ford GT, enabled global open/close windows, turned off beltminder (doing it with forscan eliminated the red seatbelt light being on) and enabled Bambi mode. What I can't figure out is how to increase turn signal blinks. Every other vehicle does that with the steering column control module (SCCM). However, forscan does not list that as an available module for our escape. If anyone has any insight or was possibly able to do this with focccus that would be awesome as it's the last mod I want to make.
If you've got your foot off the accelerator check the instantaneous fuel consumption. I think you'll find it's still using next to nothing in that situation.Has anyone figured out how to disable the specific cruise control function that downshifts going down hills (making the engine loud and wasting gas because I lose out on the free coast accelerating down the hill)?
The downshifting on hills is more of a noise nuisance for people who live in that area as the engine screams to high RPM. I'd rather it just coast and accellerate down the hill with no gas. Older vehicles I've had never did that going down hills. I picked up speed, which saved fuel when going up the hill just after. I did not know I had to do transmission re-programing. Navigation is one thing, but a transmission change sounds a bit out of my league, LOL! My gut tells me that if I did change it, that it would disable nice features like auto-brake when shifting from a stop on a hill. I will take a look at the HPTuners page to check it out though. Thanks for the tip.If you've got your foot off the accelerator check the instantaneous fuel consumption. I think you'll find it's still using next to nothing in that situation.
FYI AFAIK you'd need to reprogram the PCM to change the auto transmission programming. Do a search for HPTuners on here, there's a thread where a member used their interface/ software to reprogram the auto trans behaviour.
By some bizarre miracle, I swapped USB ports a few times on my laptop and FoCCCis managed to load up and read my BCM.I was going to try do it with FoCCCus but I haven't yet sussed the porting issue
I have a VeePeak ELM327 that won't seem to detect on the default COM3 port to connect (and I can't change the port/adapter setting)
Be careful using FoCCCus with cheap ELM327 interfaces- you can end up bricking the vehicle from it crashing. The OBDLink range of interfaces (which use the STN chipset instead of the ELM327) are a lot more reliable and usually work perfectly with FoCCCus. ForScan isn't as fussy and even the cheap interfaces seem to work fine with it.By some bizarre miracle, I swapped USB ports a few times on my laptop and FoCCCis managed to load up and read my BCM.
changed me Foglight setting from ‘US’ to Foglight and hit write… ELM error
Disconnected, reconnected and tried again
Success! Successfully enabled Bambi mode with FoCCCus.
