Ford Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
These are not simple OBD2 codes, these are hybrid specific codes. These are also known as dashboards codes. I used a Autozone and a O'reilly's scanner/reader with the wrench light on or off. And I was not able to retrieve a code related to TSB 07-25-12.
The code was for the Auxiliary airflow mode actuator DTC B1239.
Hello and thanks for your question.
Your not going to find anything cheaper than an IDS to retrieve codes from the body control module, smart junction box and battery control modules, which is where most of the hybrid codes are stored. Possibly the Snap On Modis or Solus, but both of these are over 2500 also.
Thank you for you answer. OUCH! I have seen on some Hybrid Fourms, http://www.greenhybrid.com/discuss/f26/wrench-icon-service-soon-message-19140/ that the scanguage at http://www.scangauge.com/products/scangaugeii/ can be used to find SOME hybrid codes. I don't know the details and I don't own one of these. Do you have any knowlege of this? I know your a Ford Tech but any info would help.
Thank You. ED
