How to turn the lamp outage off with Ford VCMⅡIDS diagnostic tool

For 2008-2010 model years, the function of the turn signal flasher was incorporated into the software of the Smart Power Distribution Junction Box (SPDJB or SJB). The SJB is configured to provide lamp-outage indication on all F250/350/450/550. 


For proper function of LED lighting installed by Final Stage Manufacturers of incomplete or modified vehicles, the SJB must be reconfigured to turn off the lamp-out indication.

the factory to do authorization.



We are against unlocking/resetting/removing CF30 BIOS password for Porsche piwis. We are not responsible for the damage. But if you insist, here are some document references provided. 


How to Reset the BIOS Password on a Panasonic CF-30?

Resetting the password on your Panasonic CF-30 computer BIOS can be accomplished by selecting a very specific option within the BIOS setup program. You must know the password that has been placed on the BIOS to gain access. Once you have accessed this setup program, the entire password resetting process will only take a few minutes.



1. Turn on your Panasonic CF-30. If your computer is already on, restart it.

2. Look for the word "BIOS" listed on screen just below the Panasonic logo during your computer's boot process. Next to the word BIOS will be the label of a keyboard key. Press the key on your keyboard that is listed on screen to load your Panasonic CF-30 BIOS.

3. Highlight "User Password" and hit "Enter."

4. Remove the value listed in the "Password" box on screen. The Panasonic CF-30 did not ship with a password protecting the BIOS, so resetting the password involves removing it entirely.

5. Use the "F10" keyboard key to save the changes you've made to your Panasonic CF-30 BIOS and restart your computer.
