Introducing PandaScan, Our Remote ForScan Service!

When it comes to diagnosing a problem within a vehicle, the first thing most people will do is use an OBD2 scanner to scan for trouble codes. These codes are generated by the vehicles ECU and can provide valuable diagnostic information. This method of vehicle diagnostics has been the standard since the Mid-90s when it was mandated that all new cars manufactured in the the US come equipped with OBD2. For us car enthusiasts this not only gave us an easy way to diagnose our vehicles, but it also gave us a way into our Vehicles ECU.

With the adoption of OBD2, custom ECU tuning to bolster vehicle performance followed shortly after.  Along with that came other non-performance modifications to tweak how your vehicle operates, and that's what we are here to talk about! Introducing PandaScan, our very own ECU Reconfiguration service! Using the power of FORScan and provided PandaScan device, we can remotely access your Ford vehicle's ECU to unlock hidden features and more for a set fee. For example, on a 2021+ Ford Bronco we can unlock all the G.O.A.T. Modes, Recalibrate your speedometer to account for bigger tires, and activate Bambi mode, which allows you to keep your fog lights on when high beams are activated for maximum light output. These are amongst the many features we can bring you with our PandaScan Service.

Once you've decided to purchase the PandaScan service and a Panda Motorworks approved PandaScan device, you will need to schedule a session with our calibration team to complete the service. If you do not have an ELM327 Connector, you can purchase one here! You need to make sure you are able to receive a solid internet connection on your computer from your vehicle, as you will be need to be in or near your vehicle to complete the process. You will need to have the latest version of FORScan installed so we can access your vehicles ECU. You can find and download the FORScan program here. You will begin the process by opening TeamViewer at the scheduled time, if you need to download TeamViewer click here. The calibration specialist will then call you to give further instruction, so please have your phone ready. Once connected with a member of the calibration team you will then connect the OBD2 Scan device to your vehicles OBD2 port located in the drivers footwell. Once you have a connection, make sure the device's switch is in the "HS" position and then plug the other end into your computer. Once the connection is established, you are ready to begin the calibration process.


You will begin the process by putting your vehicle in the "Key On" or "accessory power" position. This will allow our calibration specialist to access your vehicles ECU and allow him to make the changes requested. You will need to remain on the phone with the calibration specialist as he will need you to occasionally flip the switch on the OBD2 module from the "HS" setting to the "MS" setting and vice versa. This process can vary in time depending on the services requested, but within minutes the calibrations will be safely applied to your vehicle! Upon completion, you can disconnect the OBD2 module and enjoy your new unlocked features.

We are proud to offer this service and help you get the most out of your new Ford Vehicle. This task can be daunting when done alone and can have some serious negative effects, so trust the experts at Panda Motorworks to take care of your vehicle and get it done right the first time!
