(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!

Problem:

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..

 

Remedy:

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 motorcraft.com or any reliable source (I have mine from http://www.obdexpress.co.uk/wholesale/ford-vcm-ids-v108.0...)

and copy them to host desktop.

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

Lonsdor K518ISE BMW CAS2/CAS3 Manual

 

Operation

CAS2/CAS3: Backup and recover (backup the key data) - eeprom data to generate keys (pls select OBD to generate) - program key

 

CAS3+/CAS3++: Backup and recover (backup the key data) - dismantle the CAS immo box and read its data and backup eeprom data with the programmer - eeprom data to generate a key (pls select OBD to generate) - program key

 

Note:

 

1. CAS2/CAS3: the operations to add keys and all keys lost are the same

 

CAS3+: all keys lost need to dismantle the body ECU

 

CAS3++: all keys lost operation is not supported

 

2. Keys with the bar type is not supported currently

 

3. CAS case (box) is under dashboard generally 

 

 

 

 

 

Attention

 

1. Suggestion to backup the key data before all operation

 

2. For CAS3, CAS3+, CAS3++systems, you can program 2 smart keys at most. To program smart keys, you need to disable one smart key first, then program a new key

 

3. It will take 10 min to update CAS. Pls make sure the auto batteries are fully charged

 

Note: don’t use this function when the voltage is less than 1.5v. pls charge the battery and make sure the voltage is more than 11.5v. during the update, neither cut off the power nor insert the key. For smart keys, pls take it outside the vehicle

 

4. For CAS3+ all keys lost, you mast dismantle and read backup data. Use the data to make a dealer key and then program the car keys. For CAS3++, you can add a new key to it but there is no possible solutions to all keys lost.

 

5. This system can be operated via OBD. But to reduce risk of immobilizer, you are advised to backup secure data of the body ECU with the programmer for CAS3+, CAS3++ systems. When the programming fails, the data can be recovered and back to the initial state

 

6. If the key can’t start the car after programming is completed, please try to sync DME and ELV 

 

 

 

 

Reference

 

PIN code: PIN code requirement

 

Remote generation: When key programming completes, the remote control will be generated automatically

 

OBD location: Under the steering wheel (close to pillar A)
