Well the vehicle is at the dealer again and for sure I won't get it before Friday. But they got me a rental, least they can do at this time.

To be continued if any update...

The car is back, they did a "software update" to solve the hill start assist and service advancetrac problem. However..........I have now a new problem: the airbag light stays on. Also the one on the dashboard is flashing on/off. I think there was a recall for that in the past and in my opinion they did replaced back then. Not sure what this might be...

Yes, sounds like a dead battery.

You should invest in an OBD2 scan tool and FORScan software to determine what fault codes are being generated or go to an independent service center that can (at a minimum) read out the fault codes so the problem can be diagnosed.

 

Advice:

UCDS is even better. You can find it on eBay, HW & SW

How has your experience been using UCDS?

Do you need to access the Ford IDS database on a Ford server or on an 'alternative' site?

 

Does it support Fusions also or only Mondeo?

Beethoven,

 

After stating that UCDS is a better choice than ForScan, you haven't explained to the forum members why you have made this recommendation.

Forum members have frequently responded to your posts requesting technical assistance with your projects.

 

Please share your knowledge about UCDS so that we can make the correct decision when we need to purchase a scantool.

First: sorry for the late reply ....

ForScan is' limited' compared to UCDS.

UCDS = Russian made, as you know.

I am not working with UCDS, a friend does. And he has done the changes to my mondeo 

If you want to use FORSCAN , it is 'scan' for errors and in some cases, you can change parameters .

Obviously, with UCDS , you can do all of this, but that program can dig deeper, if you know what I mean.

If you want to add features/options, In 9 out of 10, you must rewrite the modules. This can be done with UCDS.

That's what I know. There will be other advantages, too, I guess

As far as I know, you do not have to access the IDS database and I believe, it is also for the fusion..

Thanks Beethoven

 

UCDS sounds very promising.

 

Perhaps it would be beneficial to others if you would post the information in your last few posts in a new topic with a more meaningful name for the forum searches. Something like "UCDS Diagnostic Tool" or similar.

 

Thanks again.
