If it's Ford, you can do it through ETIS.

Most (all?) of the previous methods have been closed down 'cos people abuse them.

I use this site. Forget that it's for Mini, it works on any car. https://www.mini.co.uk/en_GB/home/owner ... tails.html

(If the page gives you an error, Go to https://financecalculator.mini.co.uk/fo ... /form.html and it comes up.)

I then use https://decoder.bvzine.com/ to decode it.

Both links seemed to give errors. I tried something similar on the BMW site and it didn't work. cheers anyway

Wonder if it's your browser? I used the mini site a couple of weeks ago no issue. I tried today and it didn't work so I had to load the form separately (the finacecalculator one) It came to life after that and now the top link works since running the second. Hope you get it sorted, I found it really useful.
