(Solved) missing xml files - VCM2 IDS cannot complete PCM flash

If your VCM2 IDS cannot flash PCM coz xml files are missing,How to do? Here is someone's solution for you,enjoy!


I had a 2013 Ford fiesta TDCi .

I tried to do PMI ..

There is later update available for this PCM online .

I could not complete the pcm reflash as it was looking for two missing xml files on it ..

Is your IDS also a mix off old soft with later soft to keeep the licence for three days .

On previous vehicles i tried i never had problems on updating the PCM to latest calibration files..



I also have this problem, somehow all files in this folder got zero size. So every time it happened I copying them from another location and after programming works fine. I did a lot of cars and trucks with this setup


In detail..


path approximately program files/ford/ids if you have a problem do the search on the file name.

Install any new IDS version from or any reliable source (I have mine from

and copy them to host desktop.

After, in VM setting do share folders and you can get those files from VM

How to fix Xentry tips: Fault code P012800

Here is my personal experience of Xentry tips platform,one thing i want to note for you all: I am not an expert on this subject. 

On occasion I have had access and have looked up information on TIPS (always on-line). Recently, I was looking for information that I knew existed. It was not in TIPS. In the US version of STAR TekInfo all of this information is listed under the heading of Star Bulletins. There are several sub headings: DTB, Service Bulletins, Service Campaigns, Recall Campaigns, Installation Bulletins, and XENTERY TIPS. I found the information DTB. Even with the LI number, it was not in TIPS. Don’t assume that if what you are looking for in TIPS is not there, it does not exist.


In the Tips is the LI info (Local Information) and the GI (General Inforamtion)

but in the TIPS not have campaign, the campaign is in an other program.



Xentry Tips: Engine diagnosis warning lamp activated – Fault code P012800




Engine diagnosis warning lamp activated – The fault code P012800 “The coolant temperature is below the coolant thermostat specific temperature” is stored in the engine control unit.



After engine start, the engine coolant warms up more slowly than specific in the curve stored in the engine control unit.



Note: in vehicles before 05.2017, reprogram engine control unit with BD/DVD 05.2017 or higher



Erase fault memory and perform a test drive when the engine has cooled down


If the fault reoccurs afterwards:

– perform guided test “check component ‘R58 (coolant the mostat heating element)”

– generate a new quick test (with fault freeze frame data)

– create a tip case and send it together with the quick test + the guided test to you MPC
