AE not talking to ABS

I purchased the AE program a while back and havent spent much time with it, but I want to correct the speedo for a tire size change.

I tried to "change systems" to get the ABS module, and make the change but I get an error message.



Also I just changed my communication settings to what you see here.


I'm stumped, and this $$ program hasn't been a huge help with anything yet. Any ideas why I'm getting the error?

I had that problem one time and i was a blown fuse that supplies power to the OBD2 port, check all your fuses first. How many other modules could it talk to?

I did a visual check of fuses, and there are no obvious issues. I havent tried any other modules, just the ABS. I'll go check fuses 1x more and try different modules. Any idea what fuse it was?

In my 2003 f250 it was fuse number 12, the description was Cigarette Lighter/ OBD2.

If that is not the problem there are some other tests you can do to try to find the problem, I can probably look them up if this doesn't work.

For some awesome reason the fuse that feed your OBD2 diagnostic port is tied in with the cigarette lighter. Most people overload these circuits and blow the fuse. Then you try and check codes and wonder why it won't communicate.

I bought the enhanced coverage from AE for Fords. It's actually not bad for the price you pay. I'm curious though, you can change parameters in the ABS with it? I use the engine side of the program alot, never really messed with the ABS,

It took me 3 weeks of off and on work to finally find it was just a fuse, that's the cool thing about this forum, I learn a lesson, and you benefit from it, and the next guy helps me, pretty cool!

Your welcome!
