Nope, stupidity mainly. My car had no keys at all AND I swapped the XR BEM for a Fairmont Ghia BEM. In SmartShield cars swapping BEM's requires matching them with the ECU. Forscan now does this while programming keys which is a bonus!

Brilliant, can't access DTC's with it on AU's, don't know about B series though. I haven't played fully with Forscan, wasn't using a laptop but an old PC with 22" monitor setup in the car :)

Well bugger me, didn't know that. I thought I saw a post somewhere that it couldn't read DTC on AU's. Will have to fire it up again and have a looksee :)

i can vouch works great on a AU reads all the modules ECU, CLUSTER? Airbag. except the BEM.
which as i understand ford done something funny with the AU BEM's addressing.
