CODE READER DOES NO WORK

2006 Ford Taurus • 114,000 miles

When I connect my code reader and turn the ignition on, the code reader says linking then fails. It appears the code reader can't read the codes. Horn fuse is ok, if thats the fuse used for the hookup.

Are you sure the scanner is good? Does it work on another vehicle? Also, many code readers only read engine codes. This could be a different code for the transmission or other component.
