I also took a video of what the SCT X4 is reading the data as. The car was just idling but the rpms are flying all over the place.
A few things.
1. I think you are supposed to have the key in the second position, not the"Run" position, do not start the car. This is how most devices connect to the PCM.
2. If this doesn't work you might be entering the demo mode somehow. Hit configuration instead of continue and then select "FORD GAS 08 NEWER".
If you are trying to datalog with a laptop, follow these instructions on bama's site.
