A Video Guide on How to Navigate the FORScan Menu Functions
Navigating the menu functions of FORScan can be quite confusing if you're not that familiar with how each menu button works. A video guide created by SY Diagnostics shows how each button works and how to use each function. Check it out on the video below.
The first menu function that you should check when getting started with FORScan in the Settings section. Under the settings section, there are two tabs - General and Supported PIDs. In the general tab, you can set up the communication parameters for your COM port and Baud rate. The recommended setting is to set them both at Auto. You can also find in the general tab the settings for the measurement and the language to use - the default measurement is the metric system and language is English. On the other hand, under the Supported PIDs tab, you will find a checkbox list of all the available PIDs (On-board diagnostics Parameter IDs) in your vehicle. You can disable from the list the PIDs that you deem unnecessary.
Next on the menu is the Vehicle function. This section is where you will find the "Connect" button in order to connect FORScan to your vehicle. You will also find the connection status of your vehicle in this section.
The DTC menu function contains all the list of DTCs (Diagnostic Trouble Codes) in your vehicle. It also shows a detailed explanation for each DTC and its functional buttons.
The Dashboard menu displays your vehicle's parameter data, like the sensor's data and other essential info. The Oscilloscope menu, on the other hand, displays your vehicle's data in a graphical format. While the Test menu is the section that enables you to apply on-board diagnostic procedures.
