Is my OBDII cable compatible with Expy's???

Back when I had my '98 Audi A6 I ordered this OBDII to USB cable for PC and it came with software. Now I'm 100% sure the software won't work since it's designed for Audi computers but will the OBDII cable work on my '05 Expy? I was just wondering since I see that the pins are missing. Any thoughts?



PS. When I plug it in, the indicator light on the cable turns on. Is there any Ford OBDII software available for PC's to pull off codes?

OBD-II is a standard, so yes the cable should work. As far as the software goes, where did you get the Audi version?

I bought an OBD II scanner a few years back and recently discovered it doesn't work with newer cars. Software change is needed. I can get an updated replacement from the manufacturer for about $70 but can buy a new one (different brand) for about the same $.
