thank you it is an xr 6 1996 xh model
AU Auto Mechanic: Gary, Australia Car Mechanic replied 6 months ago

Hello there,

Your car is little too old, and if not on their list, then don't try it.

It will cost you way more than the little module to fix your car.

The module probably doesn't support the early ford protocol.

Can you post a link of the module you have please?

I'm sorry I'm not computer savy and I'm a 71 y.o. pensioner an I'm on limited funds and cant afford long distance calls
AU Auto Mechanic: Gary, Australia Car Mechanic replied 6 months ago

Ok, if you're not computer savvy, I would not buy things like this, risking your car.

Ford uses a different programming protocol compared to Holden, and most Japanese cars.

Kind regards
