Default FORScan on a Gen1
See here for lots of back ground information: FORScan - software to enable/disable features in your truck - Ford F150 Forum - Community of Ford Truck Fans

So I figured I'd run this and scan my Gen1 and see what the results where, they are not as impressive as the list of things that you can do with a Gen2 but none the less there are some useful things it can do for its low cost ($40 for the hardware). I'm going to run it on other MYs when I get a chance and see what options are avaliable on them and record the results here for people to see.

2010
  • Install/Uninstall Trailer Brake Controller
  • Enable/Disable DRLs
  • Set the front and rear tire pressure warning levels
  • Turn auto lock on and off
  • Enable/Disable perimeter alarm
  • Enable/Disable remote keyless entry
  • Enable/Disable welcome interior lights

Some screenshots of it reading data from a Gen1:

I've played around with it a bit when I was trying to make cooled seats work in a '10, but never bothered to get the extended license.

The tire pressure thing is interesting, can you set any value in there?

2010s are GEM trucks. 2011-2014 have BCMs and much more things are accessible with Forscan. I signed up their forum and requested the license but haven't had time to try it yet.

I picked up one of these years ago and added the switch to the connector:

ELM327 1.5V USB CAN-BUS Scanner Software V2.1 Supports DOS and Windows | eBay

Instructions for adding the switch:
