I was looking to purchase a Forscan diagnostic interface for my 2017 F150.  The main reason is to permanently disable the auto start/stop.  Does any one have experience with these?  I saw a couple other things I could do such as disable the seat belt ding and have fog lights stay on when the headlights are on auto.  Anyone else find a useful change they made to a Ford/Mazda with Forscan?

I have not purchases Forscan as I have access to an  OEM scan tool. There are somethings that the Forscan software can do that IDS cannot with Asbuilt. I have ways arround that. Just to clarify, you may not have to purchase the software to do what you want but use their free version. This is worth exploring. As for the OBD interface, might want to ask that question is a specific f150 forum and get an idea of what others are using. 

 

High speed and medium speed compatibility would be nice for future toying. For your truck, you only need high speed interface. I can't remember what pins. Your truck has a gateway module DLC.  Basically it's a router that allows the different networks to communicate, but also your scan tool to communicate with all the networks over HS CAN 1 and 2.

 

The only software related mod I have done to my car is change the 3 turn signal blinks to 4.

 

Happy modding!

You want to read High Speed 1 at pins 6 and 14 of the DLC. HS CAN 2 is on pins 3&11. Some fords have Medium Speed CAN on pins 3&11. Keep this in mind when shopping for your reader.
