2002-2005 Explorer Trans Temp?
« on: June 23, 2015, 08:35:18 AM »
Can anyone confirm if the 2002-2005 Ford Explorers with either the 4.0 or 4.6 will get a transmission temp reading with this new model?

If you know the code, then the UG MX can read the parameter

My '04 Explorer is 11-bit CAN.  What does the (~2008+) Ford CAN preprogrammed mean.
With (~) are you indicating that pre 2008 CAN (even 11-bit CAN) will work?

I'm interested in the Trans temp functionality.

I know when my OBDII scanner is plugged in, that I can read Trans temp.

Ford began introducing CAN in its vehicles around 2004, but Ford did not fully have all their vehicles switched to CAN until 2008.   ~=approximately.   select that option if you have CAN

Will the UltraGuage MX 1.3 function the same as the UltraGauge EM Plus?
That is, if the new features of the MX 1.3 aren't available for a vehicle, but the EM Plus does work, will the MX model function as if it's a EM model?

If you do not use the MX Mgauge feature, then it will be have just like a Ultragauge V1.2.

Okay, so the MX 1.3 doesn't have all the features of the EM Plus?

FWIW - I'm waiting to order two units. 
I want the new MX capabilities, but not at the cost of losing the EM Plus features.
One of my cars will not be able to use the MX features, but my next car will.

Don't abandon me now, we've made such good progress and I feel like we're almost there. :P

The Plus has additional Performance and Emissions features that the EM 1.2 and MX do not have.

Alright, I'm a complete donkey, all my questions were on the page for the MX.

"The UltraGauge MX 1.3 is identical to the UltraGauge EM v1.2 except that the MX 1.3 has the ability to POTENTIALLY access manufacturer specific gauges. The best source of gauge codes is on an automotive forum specific to your vehicle."

"All the features of the UltraGauge EM v1.2 will be available in the MX. regardless of protocol."

Thanks for your patience.
