Yes mine works great, I used the:
This screen allows the operating mode to be read or set.
< PWM >
In the case of Ford Connects, select PWM as the current mode. Your display may be different.
Pressing the upper right or left button will allow different protocols to
be chosen. The protocol is not changed until FORCE is pressed
or from the manual fault finding
PROBLEM: Nothing displayed and no backlight
CAUSE: Vehicle has a blown fuse.
SOLUTION: Replace blown vehicle fuse. The OBDII connector is usually powered off the
cigarette lighter/accessory fuse, check this one first.
PROBLEM: Never stops saying "Connecting..."
#1 CAUSE: Vehicle ECU not on
#1 SOLUTION: Turn key to RUN or start engine
#2 CAUSE: ECU not responding properly.
#2 SOLUTION: Use MORE>MORE>MODE and try Forcing the following modes:
FORD Products: PWM or CANSF
GM Products: VPW , ISO or CANSF
Chrysler Products: ISO, VPW or CANSF
Volvo Products: ISO, CANSF or CANLF
Others: ISO, KWPS, KWPF, CANSF, CANLF, CANSS or CANLS
#3 CAUSE: Vehicle is not OBDII, OBD2 or EOBD compatible.
#3 SOLUTION: None - ScanGaugeII requires vehicle to be OBDII, OBD2 or EOBD
PROBLEM: Connects and then goes to sleep after 10 to 15 seconds.
#1 CAUSE: Engine is not running
#1 SOLUTION: Start engine
#2 CAUSE: ECU requires only Supported PIDS (Common on 1995-1999 Subaru)
#2 SOLUTION: Use MORE>MORE>MODE>PIDS select SUPPORTED and SAVE
PROBLEM: Poor MPG and TRIP Fuel use accuracy.
CAUSE: Some sensor initial accuracy not good (especially Diesel)
SOLUTION: Use FILLUP procedure to adjust for sensor errors.
IMPORTANT: Use MORE>FILLUP>DONE at first fillup after connecting ScanGaugeII
II. At second fillup, use MORE>FILLUP and adjust top line to match amount of fuel used
to fill tank, then press DONE.
PROBLEM: MPG and TRIP Fuel use very inaccurate after using fillup adjustment.
CAUSE: Error in adjustment procedure.
SOLUTION: Use MORE>MORE>MORE>USE DEFAULTS>YES then redo setup of
PROBLEM: Some gauges are blank.
CAUSE: Some sensors are not used in the vehicle or data is not reported by ECU
FOR EXAMPLE: About 10% of vehicles show FPR and 50% show MAP. 1995-1999 Subarus
don't show intake air temperature. Some Ford diesels don't show coolant temperature.
PROBLEM: Shuts off when engine automatically turns off in a Hybrid vehicle.
CAUSE: Fuel type not set to HYBRID
SOLUTION: Use HOME>MORE>SETUP>FUEL>TYPE and then select HYBRID and
PROBLEM: Screen goes blank when trying to clear codes.
CAUSE: Vehicle is not responding to the "clear codes" command
SOLUTION: Sometimes multiple attempts are needed to clear the codes. Some vehicles don't
respond properly to the "clear codes" command and the codes cannot be cleared by the
PROBLEM: When I scan the vehicle, it says NOT READY in the second line.
CAUSE: The vehicle has not completed its "readiness" tests since the last time it was cleared or
the battery was disconnected.
SOLUTION: It will continue to say "NOT READY" until all on board diagnostic tests have
been completed. This does not mean that it is not ready to be scanned.. To get to this screen the
vehicle computer reported that no trouble codes exist. Some states require that some or all onboard
tests be completed and no trouble codes be present to pass emissions testing. When the
ScanGaugeII reports No Codes Found and READY, the vehicle is ready to pass emissions.
Some states allow some tests to not be completed and can pass the vehicle even when the
ScanGaugeII reports NOT READY.
Problem: XGauge doesn't work.
CAUSE: Data entered incorrectly. Make sure an "F" is not entered as an "E"
SOLUTION: Carefully verify that all entries are correct. A single incorrect entry can keep it
CAUSE: Vehicle doesn't support this request. Not all requests are responded to by every vehicle
within a manufacturers line over all model years.
