I have connected my AU2 to FORScan via a laptop with some success [also a BF & hopefully shortly a BA as well], but currently still learning. there are a 'few' members on here who have used it on the AU & up models with success, however I do not know anything about "tourqe pro" sorry. also just be aware that NOT all elm's are created equal on ebay.

So to Clarify - An AU Does not do OBD2, and so Torque wont give a lot of useful info.

FORSCAN will however give you lots of info. It can see the PCM, Cluster, ABS on the bus and show the fault codes. FORSCAN is free.

I've used ForScan for my AUII via ELM3207 connector.

From my understanding the Ford AUII is not fully OBDII compliant, it's only partially compliant. After a certain year i.e. after 2000. That's the impression I got from the Ford Techs, whether its true or not is something else.

Yes, it can provide Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC) and can reset trouble codes.
