Question EF/EL Dash Diagnosic Modes

Does ANYONE who is familiar with the Dash Diagnostic mode on the EF/EF Falcon model know what each screen signifies ? There are about 7-8 screens that are easy enough to work out, but there are a total of 17 screens. I have e-mailed Ford and VDO and they are both reluctant to help (who knows why...and I don't care if the screens are unimportant...I just want to know why they are there !!) so my last resort is to post a thread here and see. HELP !!

Yeah...I had Ford in Rocky acknowledge there was such a mode...the service guy made out that he knew all the screens and what they were....Turned out he knew squat about it all...I did a search on this forum for any previous threads...there were some but they didn't have any answers

The diagnostics mode is intended only for development purposes. It is not intended to use as a service diagnostic tool. As such, we cannnot release the information related to the diagnostics operation.
