ELS27 FORScan adapter v2.3.7 user manual

ELS27 adapter v2.3.7 has been rolled out. Update news… Here you go.

What is FORScan?

For example, FORScan can detect modules which are not visible for regular OBD2 scanners, can show you trouble codes which are never displayed by OBD2 scanners, can show you PIDs which are not supported by any OBD2 scanner, run specific tests and service procedures. In other words, FORScan can do things that regular OBD2 scanners can not do.


What can ELS27 FORScan Scanner do?


Detect vehicle on-board network configuration

Read and reset Diagnostic Trouble Codes from all modules (see list of supported modules)

Reading of modules’ sensors’ data

Run test diagnostic procedures (not supported in FORScan Lite yet)

Run service procedures (not supported in FORScan Lite yet)


What vehicles can be tested?


All Ford, Mazda, Lincoln, Mercury vehicles that can be addressed by supported adapters. It is 99% of models after 2000 and around 92% of models after 1996 (the year when OBD2 became a standart in USA).
