If you own or work on Fords or Mazda’s there is an amazing piece of software out there called Forscan and it gives you a professional full system diagnostic tool for your Ford or Mazda at a fraction of the price. This will work with most Fords/Mazdas in Australia from 1999+.
What do you need to use Forscan?
A Forscan connector we sell a 3 types on our website:
We suggest you use the wireless or Bluetooth version as these are the new models and allow you to be wireless and also use the forscan app on your phone as well as the computer program.
Forscan Software or Forscan App (viewer) both are FREE
The apps can be downloaded from the iOS
app store or the Android Play store – The app mainly allows you to view &
clear faults and live data. For the more intensive features like injector
coding or key reprograming you will need the computer version.
The computer software can be downloaded from the official link here: https://forscan.org/download.html
This allows you to access all the features of this software and gives you the professional tool you need to do most tasks.
Now you plug your OBD-AUS Forscan connector into the OBD2 port of your car which you will find most likely under the steering wheel in the lower dash panel or just below that above the pedals. It is a 16 Pin plug that looks like a rectangle with sloped sides.
Turn on your phone or laptop and go into your WiFi or Bluetooth settings and connect to the connector.
Now you open the Forscan App or Forscan computer program and press connect and you are in.
