Calling a Ford Expy Mechanic

I am hoping to purchase a cable and a program for my laptop to connect to my expy. I have a 2010 Limited. What I am looking for however is what FORD uses at the dealership. I have 2 local dealers.. not bad folks just charge happy. There are times I would like to be selfsufficient and do some of my own work like turning on DRLs etc. I am computer savy as well as have a good wrenching ability ( All be it I know my limitations).

I am looking for directions as to what software and cables I need to purchase.

Thanks

Yes I am a mechanic . I use Snap On , OTC , and Launch scan tools . I'm sorry I do not know " SJB " ? Spell it out for me . BCM GEM ATC PCM ATCM I know . Seat mod's . door mods. fpdm's ect . Ase wave shows 14 current pc based scann apps , none Ford based . They do have good hand held listed . Thought it would be worth a look for you . Factor scann aps are $$$ .

Take a look at AE (AutoEnginuity). Their Ford Enhanced add on software supports bi-directional control. Apparently a number of dealerships use it for the routine work because of the price. (Save the NGS for the hard stuff.)
