Scan Gauge II ?

I have a Scan Gauge II on the way to monitor coolant and oil temps. Will the instructions make it clear to the electronically challenged where to hook it up and how to program it to do this? Or do I need more info? Suggestions appreciated.

05 F350 XLT Shortbed Crew 4WD, handshaker, stock

Should be programmed already.

You just plug it into your OBDII port inside your truck.
Turn the key on and it automatically connects to your trucks computer.

They are super easy to work with.

No... You will have to program the device to extract the data that you need. There's 4 parameters that you will need to input into the device. I can't remember each parameter but it's something like "RXD", "RXF", "TXD" data. It's not overy complicated but it's definitely not plug and play... at least not for the data most people want (ECT/EOT).

I think most of the time you have to program the Xguages for Oil Temp. Coolant temp will be there just not sure about oil temp. Who did you buy it from?

Here's the link for the codes from Scan gauge. Scroll down and find the data you're looking for and add a new gauge on the "X-gauge" options.

I bought mine off of the scangauge website and had to program nearly everything. I found them on Ebay for $125 last week if anyone's interested.

Here is a link with a better list of Xgauges for your truck:

Some Scangauge II Codes for "Xgauge"

Here is an example of the codes you will need to enter. It is actually simple to enter these gauges, just be accurate in your entering. As you see below you will always enter TXD first, then RXF and so on. The Scangauge II will walk you through these steps in this order.

Now, you will find Xgauges through out the link above, some will have the "TXD"-"RXF" listed, some wont. Just know, those that do not have these letters are still listed in this order. Have fun!

(also, the Scangauge II as you scroll through, the Xgauges will read from Xgauge #24 down to #0. )

FICM Vehicle Power (Volts) (Should be 12 Volts)(should not drop below 10.25 for more than 60 seconds, or 9.0 for 4 seconds. TSB 09-24-03)
TXD: 07E02209CE
RXF: 0462450906CE
RXD: 3010
MTH: 0064010000000
NAM: FVP

FICM Logic Power (Volts) (Should be 12 volts)
TXD: 07E02209CF
RXF: 0462450906CF
RXD: 3010
MTH: 0064010000000
NAM: FLP

FICM Main Power (Volts) (Should be 47-48) (this does work! )
TXD: 07E02209D0
RXF: 0462450906D0
RXD: 3010
MTH: 0064010000000
NAM: FMP
