Scangauge and 2013 Expedition

I just received my Scangauge 2 today and none of the Ford specific X-Guages are working. Bought it specifically for keeping an eye on the transmission temps. Anyone have any ideas? Got an email out to the company but just checking with all of you too. Leaving tomorrow to pick up our new Jay Flight 19RD in Des Moines from central Colorado. Would like to have it working on the way home.

Thanks,
Jeremy

The 'X-Gauges' are the ones you key in, correct? I remember it was a royal PIA and, by myself, I couldn't get it to work. The DW had to read them to me a few digits at a time and I keyed them in very carefully. There were too many digits for me to read them, key them, then find my place to read the next group.

Bottom line, it was a team effort.

That's not much help, but that's all I got.

Thanks, but I input numbers like this all the time for work. What makes it easy for me is read and input 4 digits at a time.

You still need a sender to monitor trans temp..

I would be shocked if there wasn't a "sender" as Sean mentions, but that is a possibility.

However, if I recall correctly from when I set up a ScanGuage II for my old truck, the codes were very long and there were more than one option. I seem to recall there was a manual that included several codes for the different measurements by manufacturer, but also you could go online and get additional codes. Transmission Temp was what I was after and it tool several attempts to set up the X-Guage to get it working.

There's a temp sensor in the bulkhead wiring that goes to the ECU for the tranny. It sends the reading to the PCM. You have to buy the bulkhead to get the sensor..it's not sold seperately. So in short..yes...it has a sensor.

Just got off the phone with them. After inputting the codes, you may have to scroll through the gauges and come back to the one you just edited before it will start to aquire the data. I did not do this after setting up the x-gauge. It now work and mine was the third TFT code in their list.

Such a small world. I just got out of my truck about 15min ago and I was doing the same thing in my Chevy truck. I wanted the TFT (transmission temp) to display as well. I had to key in the codes as well.

Looking at getting one of these for my 2010 F150 to monitor transmission temps as well. Will I need to buy an additional sensor or sender for the Scangauge to display this ?
