Guide: The following set of instructions will guide you through the process of enabling Bambi mode and Global window open/close on your 2017 Ford Escape. You will need internet access while connected to your car to perform these steps.
At about $89 vxdiag vcx nano works flawlessly with Forscan and does both HS-CAN and MS-CAN automatically. Just select j2534 for the connection type. I should note that I do not use the VXDIAG VCX with Ford IDS or any other program besides Forscan.
If you don't mind spring for the extra $ I recommend the vxdiag. J2534 connection is the superior connection tech for Forscan. It's faster, comprehensive functioning and as far as my experience just works.
3. You will receive the following (this is where you need internet access)--click Yes
Note: if you do not have internet access while at your vehicle, leave this window open, move to where you have internet access then press Yes. Go back to your vehicle and reconnect to it
5. Your vehicle will make all kinds of beeps, the heater fan may cycle on and off and you will see numerous error messages on the info center. Don't panic. You will then receive a message to turn the ignition off. You can if you want, but it isn't necessary. Either way, press OK
6. That brings you to:
7. Next, save a copy of the current settings. That way if you ever want to go back to factory defaults or if there is a problem, you can restore to factory defaults.
Enter a File Name of your choice. I recommend you name it something very descriptive such as ccAsBuilt or ccFactory
9. Time to make changes :-D
If you do not want Global Windows, proceed to step 10.
Double Click Global Open/Close
(To use this feature once it is programmed, press and hold the unlock button on the key fob to open all the windows or press and hold the lock button on the key fob to close them)
