Code book?

Hi Folks,
Can anyone recommend a manual for interpreting the trouble codes for the V10 Ford? We saw a nice booklet for this at the Utah rally, but didn't write down the particulars, and the Ford dealer claims to have no idea what we are talking about. We purchased a scan-guage and if we ever have a problem with the van on the road, we want to be able to know what the diagnostic code means.
Anyone know where to find such a thing? Or what they had on display at the electrical pit stop in Utah?

Thanks,
-J.R.

You can try http://www.obd-codes.com/, they have a lot of codes. I have a Scan Gauge II http://www.scangauge.com/ which will read and clear codes but also is a trip computer and various gauges.

Thanks Greg, that looks like a great online source for codes. However, I am looking for something I can take with me on the road in case I encounter trouble out in the wilderness - without internet access ;-)

The booklet I saw at the rally listed the official description of each code, as well as a brief overview of what might cause/fix it. This is what I'm hoping to carry with me.

I was also impressed with the book, and copied down a number on the back cover to order one for myself. Unfortunately, it wasn't the ISBN number, and I've been unable to locate it anywhere, so I emailed SMB West to try to get more info.
Liz Feld replied that one of their employees had a copy, but didn't give me further identifying info. She did, however, photograph the code pages and email me the images. They're a little fuzzy, but I was able to print them in a readable form and now have them in my SMB for reference.

Code Book

I've been looking for the same thing with my ScanGauge II.

John, any chance you could post those scanned code pages to an album here?

Garage
My van came w/ the Superchip tuner and aside from being able to re-program for HP/torque, mpg etc... it too can check/clear codes. Mine came w/ the sheet of all codes etc...for my van which is a 01 V10. Unfortunately no access to a scanner and it is a LENGTHY chart so no I'm not going to manually enter it.

OBD codes

Sorry about the delayed reply. I've (hopefully) attached the files of the photos Liz sent me.
