AE Wont connect to PCM

i am trying to check my truck for codes and look at a couple other things but i cant get the AE to connect to the truck. I have the Enhanced Ford Bundle but it wont connect, i set it at J1850 PMW and OBDII Compliant and it wont connect to the truck. when i use NON OBDII Compliant it will connect to the truck but i cant open generic powertrain, Enhanced Can, or any other option. WTH is wrong with this thing!?!?!? or what m i doing wrong?!?!?
Thanks

Alot of times the Auto Detect don't work, you need to manually select CAN support. While still hooked to truck, top left of screen "disconnect" from vehicle. Then goto "communications Configuation" to manually select the CAN interface. Then I believe, I went back to "connect to vehicle". A window pops up going thru the check list, then another window pops up checking for sensor configuration. After that, it will ask you if you want to check for codes "All", "Current","None".

It's hard to remember without it in front of me, but it sounds like you were trying to use the J1850, when you should be using CAN.

That sounds about like the right procedure right off the top of my head as well.

Damn, you remembered that without it being in front of you.... I must be getting old...

That sounds right. I think F4 is the communications configuration, so you can just press F4 and it brings up the screen to change it to CAN.

Ok, i selected CAN and OBDII Non Compliant, i got another popup that had the selections, i entered Ford, 2003, Powerstroke 6.0 and Enhanced Powertrain and get a message that says

"Communication could not be established with the controller. Check the Connection or Validate the vehicle has support for the controller."

Now what???
Thanks for the help Guys!!!

I believe you want to use CAN and OBDII Compliant.
If you don't have the user manual, you can bring it up on your PC.
Here's the link from Autoenginuity.
http://www.autoenginuity.com/dloads/...user_guide.pdf

Does all three lights come on in the Pro-Line connector? The Pro-line connector is what you plug into the OBDII port. There should be red, yellow, and green showing. If not you have a bad connection. Check your cigarette lighter, it uses the same fuse as the OBDII power supply.

Also there are people out in the Internet who make copies of the disk that are no good. The disk and hardware have to be original to use the activation code when the PC was set up.
