I've opened the software, entered my car details, selected Ford ABS from the Diagnostic System drop down then clicked connect. It successfully connects but it only seems to connect to the Generic OBD-II and doesn't say anything about the ABS system.
Could you provide me with some step by step instructions?
You can now go to the Settings tab and then PID Config to see what parameters are supported by your vehicle. You will still need a license key to actually do anything besides view Engine RPM.

Look at the ELM327 datasheet for details on commands. To setup hyperterminal, a good reference is http://www.glmsoftware.com/TipsAndTricks.aspx
i finally got abs readings to work in my ford ranger 1999 xlt.
scanXL with ford addon, it took a little bit of playing around, but now its easy to work. i was immediately able to tell that my rear differential sensor is faulty, and that is why my abs light has been on for 2 years. tomorrow i will replace it and see if that works!
i just recently finally took care of my engine light too... i started by replacing all 3 o2 sensors, which helped, then i cleaned a bunch of other ones.. and by the time i replaced the pcv valve i was finally able to keep that light off. my truck is about to turn 200k!
What age is your Focus? Is it an EU model?
