To get a helpful recommendation, it might be worth you telling us what you intend to run ‘the software‘ on - is it your Android phone, iPhone, tablet or a PC? Also, some idea of what you hope to be able to do with your setup would narrow the field a bit.

I use this on my Frankia/Mercedes Sprinter chassis (and other cars)


I have an elderly USB ELM ODB II plug bought off eBay - with this software it still does the job and works with Windows 11

As said above if you have a Wi-Fi or Bluetooth version of the plug you can get iPhone/android versions of the software.

It’ll do basic diagnosis for free but you need to pay €40/€60 for the useful versions. (€40 gets the version that turns the engine warning light, MIL, off)

I suspect he would be looking for ford specific capability and the hardware required to run it, rather than limmit it to what will run on my X hardwaRe. Ive known Mac ludites buy a windoze laptop purely to run multiecuscan and an android phone to run alfaobd (both ducato software) and Torque pro

Ps i think the op uses apple products, but i suggest thats no hinderance for the right product.

We have a Ford Puma 2.2 powered Elddis Autoquest, and I carry with us on our van an bluetooth OBDLiink LX and run the "Torque" app on my phone and tablet.

Only yesterday our van went into limp mode which the OBDLink LX picked up as a P0234 – Engine boost condition -limit exceeded fault.
Sorted the problem and cleared the fault from the memory with the "Torque" software, and we were on our way again.

It’s a 2016 Peugeot Ellis autoquest and he uses an i phone. Ford engine. Just looking for software and hardware that will throw up any faults and clear then
m if possible, and also monitor dpf performance and status. I’ve recommended the vgate icar pro but need suggestion for suitable app. I use Multiecuscan but obviously that’s for Fiat models and his is a ford

The software I suggested is multi vehicle. On opening it asks you the make/model/year and adapts accordingly. Worked on merc bmw and mini - sorry no Peugeots or Fords to test.

Try the free version it won’t turn off the MIL - but it will tell you if it can “talk” to the van??

What was actual problem, a mate has a ducato that throws this up.

What was actual problem, a mate has a ducato that throws this up.

I checked the turbo pipework but that was all okay and I did not hear anything related to pipework coming adrift prior to the event.
Wobbled a few of the sensor connectors likely to be turbo related. Started the van a couple of times and it threw up the same fault.
Checked the wiring looms and still found nothing obvious.
Upon starting the van again, the "ENGINE" message disappeared leaving just the EML light on which I cleared with the Torque app.

Just prior to going into limp we had crested a long hill revving in 4th and changed up to 6th from 4th and initially floored the throttle pedal, so at this point, I think the sudden kick of throttle may have caught out the boost red line.
I had also read that if the turbo boost sensor cabling is too close to a heat source that that can confuse the boost pressure signal from the sensor.

In short, not really sure what caused the fault and what cured it, so sorry, no silver bullet for your mate's problem.

Yvette monitored the boost pressure via the Torque app for the next 10 miles or so, and all looked to be fine and dandy.

Yes silver bullits quite rare. is the MAP sensor a candidate?
