Why are the pedals of your MME so dirty? Aren't you wiping them down after each use?
Ha! To be honest this is a shot from before I even got to drive it.

The transport truck drove through a snowstorm. My delivery receipt said the vehicles were covered. My salesman said I did NOT want to see what the car looked like before I saw it. They did a great job cleaning it up (on the outside LOL)!

my understanding is the S and X have one, while the 3 and Y got an EPA exemption.

e.g. OBD2 connector location in Tesla Model S (2016 - 2018) RHD - Outils OBD Facile

I don't know this for a fact, just online searches.
Attached is the OBDII port on my 2020 Model Y. Technically it's not OBDII since the car is exempt but more a tap into the CAN bus. Lots is useful information but you'll need some programmers to develop an app for the MME to display it in a usable, visible format.

I tried with Car scanner on iOS but I didn’t find battery temp yet. There are many datas available but you must test them one by one. Here´s a screenshot

Darn! :( Hopefully they update for Mach-E soon. I may have prematurely ordered a OBDII dongle then.
maybe it’s my dongle that’s not compatible. What should we able to do with that?

i wasn’t able to connect with FORscan and my Bluetooth dongle

I'm assuming the FORScan people haven't gotten their hands on a Mach-E yet to update the app. Heck most of us here haven't gotten our hands on our Mach-Es either!

I also have an OBDLink MX and tried it on my Mach-E.

Yeah Forscan gave up with WTF car is this message.

Torque Lite was useless.

I tried another free Ford app and it really messed with the car (started throwing all the error messages and nothing worked until I shut it off and unplugged the MX).

Forscan does have a forum on their website. I'm sure if someone posted there volunteering their car for testing it would help ;)

No succes with Torque Pro on Android either even if I can connect. Not sure if a config has to be load before

Tried FORscan 2.3.38 with a USB J2534 adapter, same result: unknown vehicle

There is some basic data on OBD thru other tools, pedal position, vehicle speed, battery (LVB), and a bunch of temperatures but it’s hard to tell if they’re real or garbage

I made a small Python script to scan 22 ECUs that are happy to respond on CAN1 to see what data they’ll supply, so far looks like quite a bit. Few ECUs that gave their names so far were BCCM battery charge controller, BECM battery energy controller, ECM, HPCM and TCRD
Main thing I’m interested in is power to/from the motors if anyone has hints
