I only want it for reading fault codes, not programming. Rather than use the led or test lamp.
Cheers

I think the hardest part would be getting a socket to fit the diagnostic connector on the car, the rest is probably fairly easy....

I found a site where they sell the cable for $49US. Just can't locate the software.
Oh Well, i'll just keep an eye out.

No problem with the connector as Farnell Electronics stocks the plug to go into it.

I don't personally know of a PC program to read the codes but the certainly are hand held devices around to do it. Problem is usually hugh cost and availability for non Ford/industry people.

we have a broken old hand held box at work for reading error codes just sitting there. makes ya wonder how much its worth :) they have a much better device to read the codes at Ford now. And a whole laptop that sits on the steering wheel for AU's. AU ECU's can be reprogrammed at Ford Dealerships as they have EPROM? programmable memory unlike anything before it. So if they have a problem they can be fixed with a patch even by a apprentice
