Will Using FORScan Void your Warranty? This, and other Frequently Asked Questions about FORScan

· · · Comments

Here are the answers to the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about FORScan:

Will using FORScan void my warranty?

No, the dealership will have to prove that the change that you've made using FORScan was the direct cause of the failure of the warrantied part, according to the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act.   

Do I need to uninstall the original version of FORScan when installing a new version?

No, the existing version of FORScan will be replaced upon installing the new version. 

Can I use the FORScan version installed on multiple vehicles?

Yes, you can use the same FORScan installation on as many vehicles as you like.

Does FORScan run on Mac?

Yes, but you will need to use an emulator software, such as Wine, VMWare Fusion, VirtualBox, Bootcamp, or Parallels.  

Is it normal to receive a message that says “Incorrect Checksum” when using FORScan?

Yes, just continue with what you're doing when prompted with the message. Normally, FORSCan will write the correct checksum automatically. 

Will FORScan interfere with my custom speedometer calibrator or custom tune?  

No, it won't affect any of it. Custom tune and speedometer calibrators are written via the PCM module and FORScan cannot do that.  

TPMS values went blank after features are programmed in the IPC Module, is this normal?

Yes, try driving around your block and normally the values will return. 

Is it ideal to restore the as-built values before taking my vehicle to the dealership for service? 

Yes, if you don't wish your dealership to know the mods that you've applied on your vehicle. Just keep in mind to save a copy of the changes that you've made before restoring so that you can easily add them back after a visit from your dealership.

I need help on the abbreviations for the modules, is there a list describing them?

Yes, this list covers modules for different models of Ford vehicles: Click here  

Can I program multiple changes on different modules without cycling the key off/on?

Yes, you can but it is not ideal. It is recommended that you should cycle off/on after making any changes.
