    hey guys, the rpm gauge on my 2018 explorer xlt stopped working as the needle doesnt move when i drive or hit the gas pedal. Ive been using the obd connector for forscan but the mods were for specified tire pressure monitor, hyper flass error, enabling climate control option on the right screen, and global windows. Is there one that controls the rpm or a way i can find out what happened? I dont believe i changed any other settings when i enabled those listed but you never know.

    Did u back up the as built files before you made changes? I'd revert back to the As Built file to see if it starts working again.

    When using the forscan sheet i accidently changed the code for the gauge and put in a code that applies to the platinum model trim. It didnt work as the xlt gauge is different and this disabled the rpm gauge. I just put the original code back and it worked
