how i can get all PID's from Forscan

Post by ronald0001 » 09 Feb 2020, 12:49

Hi after long trying i think its better to make my Informationpanel with Python and i use an elm327/es27(same like cm327 with autoswitch)

There are many good Documentations about Standard PIDs like speed and so on....
But where i can find the Ford special ones...
In forscan if you go on the tab where you can read allmost all funktions and all modules ther are no pids writen....

i want to use my carpc also for diagnostic...

after i have this i want to start to replace my fx with the raspberry pi

Just monitor 7xx CAN IDs when you add one PID in ForScan / Ford IDS and one by one you will find them all.

For this I made a Y cable with one OBD male socket (that plugs in the OBD port of the car) and 2 OBD female sockets in which you can then plug 2 OBD adapters - one to sniff data and one to be used with ForScan.
