Finally got Forscan going and I'm slowly learning what everything is.
I checked for DTC's and there are none, everything shows ok, but noticed under log it shows DCT's in ABS and DCT's in TCU. Any idea what those mean? I assume since its in the log and there's nothing under DCT's its old?

Doesnt the TCU have something to do with navigation or the cloud?

U-codes are communication/configuration DTC's. Can't remember either off the top of my head, but a U0140 would be either lost communication with X module or invalid data received from X module (since no problems are occurring, probably a leftover historical DTC). I think the U2100 is an incorrect or not (properly) configured module, don't remember exactly. The TCU is the Telematics Control Unit, all it really does is send/receive data from the car to Ford's server's/FordPass (lock/unlock, remote start, oil life, fuel level, etc.).

Either way, if you're not having issues with anything, I wouldn't worry. It's pretty common to see some U-codes in modules that are historical.

No problem! This stuff is my line of work, so I figure I may as well help some fellow Mustang enthusiasts out when I can and save some money and headache :p.

That's awesome you have a lot of knowledge with it.
Is there a way to monitor things like O2 sensors, spark plugs, etc with it or no? It's already overwhelming going through it. lol

I haven't used Forscan personally (only dealer tools), I think there may be some info on Forscan's site to view PIDs and such. Otherwise I'm certain someone has a Youtube video lol.

That’s not how forscan works
According to some videos you can absolutely monitor live data from various sensors so not sure what you mean exactly.

You should really consider adding Forscan to your arsenal if permissible. I have IDS and Forscan on the same laptop, and unless I'm programming I will always go to Forscan first for speed and ease of use. The MPVI2 works especially well with forscan.

Yes, Forscan is pretty good at this. You can graph, record, etc.

Does anyone have any details on what the expected "healthy" values should be for each of the sensors ? I've saved a FORscan log of a short drive and I'm trying to decipher what the data says.

I've done quite a bit in Forscan for my '16 Police Utility. Can 't get it to recognize my '22 GT. It reads all the modules, then disconnects with an error about capability....
