Ford IDS 109 FAQs:


VCM 1 is compatible?

Yes, it can work with Ford VCM 1 clone


Works good with VCM2 clone?

I have Chinese clone VCM2 SP177-C1 and it works great with impressive speed. I would definitely recommend this guy.


Hi how about Online ? It will be work with cloned VCMII ?

can do

online ,

work with original and clone VCMs


So just to confirm the testman.exe and other DLLs in the Runtime folder are all v109? I’ve found that many other hacked versions are build using v106 and not all features work with 2017+ vehicles. 



know ,




can not

work with 2017

cars ,



know what to do for supporting 2017

cars .

it .


What is the price??? and where to?

Someone please test 2017 f150 key programming north america model

For F150 2017 need minimum IDS and NASTF account !!!


I have a vmware version of IDS 108.07, that appears to be built on 106 based on the file versions of a lot of the DLLs in the Runtime folder. Using a genuine VCM II with the firmware, I canNOT do TCM module programming on a 2017. 

Never tried TCM on 2017+ but that’s a possibility.

All hack I’ve seen are based on v86, v101 or v106.

Never seen a hack based on v109 executables and DLLs .. that’s why I’m asking but he won’t answer that question.



Autel MaxiDas MD808 Review

A quick look of the Autel MaxiDAS MD808 capabilities

Testing on a 2016 Corolla


Note: not sponsored or affiliated with Autel anyway


Boot up quickly, for 4 seconds around







Enter generic OBDII (check Engine symbol)

Connect in generic mode - fast



Read codes: stored codes, pending codes, permanent codes






Enter live data - PID loading quickly











Using the custom list to graph some live data



Short term fuel trim and RPM should work for this test



Maximum graphs allowed is only 2 at a time





There is also no amplitude adjustment for the graphs



At least the graphs has a quick response time

A combined graph

Have to edit the contrast because it is difficult to see



Personally would not recommend using the merged graphs because it’s not easy to see and keep track

I guess, in some occasion, having a merged graph is better than none


Enter on-board monitor test (mode 6)






Looks like the monitor id’s are translated

Non-translated id’s will show up in HEX like ($01)



Mis-fire monitor data







Purge flow monitor



Looks like not all test id’s are translated

Non-translated id’s can make some diagnosis difficult



Also not all the test id’s applies to this vehicle

Here’s an example of translated id’s of the same car from my another scanner





Exit the main menu


On to the enhanced portion of Autel MD808 (the one that reads Scan)







Here is the major downside of this scanner

There’s no auto id





The scanner is updated, but for some reason, the latest is the year 2014 (the vehicle is a 2016)



Good luck on knowing the engine



All vehicle information



Auto scan



Since the scanner is a regular MD808, it will show Engine, Trans, ABS and SRS only

If someone here is looking for MD808 for full-system diagnostic, you can go to



Enter ECU and read live data





The data list seems to be mixed around where some can be graphed and some cannot





But there seems to be a bit of second lag when existing the control unit



I give this Autel MD808 a 3.9 Star as a first impression because it could be better for its price. (Rating may change after further testing)


At least compared to the Launch crp129 I used in the past, the MD808 is the clear winner.






How to use Xentry/DAS passthru j2534?

What is the AVDI recognized by Xentry? 

Xentry Passthru is different from from regular Xentry openshell. Xentry passthru does not use SDconnect toolkit. When you launch the program it will give you a dropdown where you can choose which J2534 device (can be found at you want to use.



How to use Xentry Passthru?

If you got the Xentry Passthru installed, there is a tool which will do the dirty work for you.

Normally it is not linked or doesnt have desktop shortcut but resides (at least in my installation)

C:Program Files (x86)Mercedes-BenzxentrybinSelectPTDevice

IF you have installed your passthru (would that be AVDI or anything else) with correct drivers, registry entries etc it will just present you with list of options and you select your VCI from dropdown list.

Heard good things about AVDI J2534 compatibility (real thing, don’t know about clones) so it shouldn’t be a big deal. Recently i have tried to use BOSCH KTS560 as passthru and it works perfectly okay.

For curiosity, i did also test the 20-euro MiniVCI that gets normally bundled with Toyota techstream packages. to my surprise it also works albeit slow and sometimes freezes the application. This one can be actually made to work even with old DAS like 2009, 2012….it’s just matter of proper settings in cal.ini and slave.ini


For DAS/Xentry users:

Old thread – but do not run the SetPassThruDAS.exe, as it was written for DAS/Xentry for Windows XP, and not Openshell or Xentry Passthru. All you need to do is install a fresh OS (Windows 7 Enterprise x86 or x64 SP1) ideally on a physical laptop, connect the AVDI device to the USB port and run the SetupInterface_yourserialnumber_PASSTHRU_xxxxxxx.exe and Next through the setup process. If you have a current version of the Passthru software, you will see a grayed out option for installing drivers for DAS that you cannot select, but do not be concerned about that. It will detect the AVDI, and install the appropriate J2534 dll files in the WindowsSystem32 directory. Then continue installing your Passthru software provided on the Blu-ray from Daimler. It will take a while to install, and once it verifies your hardware ID and installs your StartKey, launch Xentry Passthru from the icon it creates, and it will prompt you first thing as to what interface you want to use. You will see Abritus72 AVDI PT (your serial number here) in the drop down box. Select that device, and that is all their is to it. Xentry should automatically communicate with the vehicle.
