Ranger Protocol OBD II

Hey guys,

Wondering if anyone knew the protocol for the OBD II on a 2004 Ford Ranger 2.3l.

This weekend i tried to scan it with a ELM 327 and the Vehicle Response could not connect. I didin't know if anyone else has tried anything or should i get another code reader?

Any help would be great, thanks.

I've run the ELM Scan adapter on my 97 2.3 and have had good luck with it. It should just install a general usb-serial driver and set a COM port. Have you verified that the COM port # in the obd software matches the port # in Windows device manager? I'll try to look also and see if I can remember if the baud settings had to be changed.


HA, just saw the age of this zombie thread, apparently revived by the spam account, my bad
