How PCM reprogramming with VCM2 SP177-c

 

VCM2 communication issues:

VCM2 IDS cannot communicate with PCM:

 

No puede establecerse comunicación con el PCM

De el contacto

(Error message in English: Communication with the PCM can not be established

From the contact)

XENTRY-Connect-C5-FBA-konfiguration-fa0003e

VCM2 Tech support:

It’s normal…

You can use the old version IDS 86 software

or

the latest version IDS 108 CD tested by pros

Then the problem will be solved!

 

Tips: PCM reprogramming with VCM2 SP177-c

Step 1: Select the toolbox tab at the top of the screen

Step 2: Select “Module Programming”

Step 3: Select the tick mark or the Enter key

Step 4: Select “Module Reprogramming”

Step 5: From the fly out menu, select the type of module to be reprogrammed

Step 6: Select the tick mark or the Enter key

Step 7: The application will compare the current calibration level to the latest one available for that vehicle. A message will appear.

Step 7A: If no later calibration is available, a message will appear indicating this. Select the tick mark or the Enter key to return to the Module Programming menu.

Step 7B: If a later calibration is available, a message will appear asking if you want to reprogram the module with this calibration. If you do not want to reprogram the module, select “No”. You will be returned to the Module Programming menu.

Step 8: If you want to reprogram the module, select “Yes” in response to the question “Do you want to program the vehicle with this calibration?”

Step 9: Make sure that an Internet connection has been established and then select “Confirm”

Step 10: You will be presented with a screen that recommends that you carry out Self Test. If you choose to complete this test, you will receive a list of Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC’s) that have been set on the vehicle. When finished viewing this list, select “Exit”.

Step 11: Follow the on-screen instructions to prepare the vehicle and turn the ignition key off and on.

Select the tick mark or the Enter key after each one.

Step 12: If necessary, apply the reprogramming label to the PCM

If an emissions recall has been performed or a required emissions-related TSB has been completed, an Authorized Modification label must be placed on the PCM. These labels can be purchased at the parts counter of a Ford or Lincoln/Mercury dealership.

Step 13: Select the tick mark or the Enter key to return to the Module Programming menu.

Issues & Causes/Solutions: VCM 2 & Temperature

VCM 2 unit is housed in a shock resistant polycarbonate case with rubber end boots, along with an extended operating temperature and voltage range, for increased durability and ruggedness in service bay and road test environments,

 

BUT do ensure the VCM II is not subjected to extreme temperature or prolonged exposure to direct sunlight that may cause heating of the VCM II.

 

Environmental requirement: Temperature & Humidity

Operating:

VCM II unit: -20ºC to 70ºC (-4ºF to 158ºF)

Wireless USB 2.0 adapter: 0ºC to 50ºC (32ºF to 122ºF) at 10% to 90% RH non-condensing

 

Storage: -40ºC to 85ºC (-40ºF to 185ºF) at 10% to 90% RH non-condensing

 

 

Issues & Causes/Solutions: VCM 2 & Temperature

 

Issue:

VCM II turns off (shutsdown/suspends-operation, all LEDs off) immediately after being powered by the USB cable or DLC cable

 

Cause/Solution:

  • Verify the ambient temperature is within the acceptable operating range for the VCM II device: -20°C to 70°C (-4°F to 158°F)
  • If the ambient temperature is outside this range allow the temperature to return to the acceptable operating range and the VCM II will automatically resume operation
  • If VCM II error persists when the ambient temperature returns to its operating range, contact your regional technical support

 

Issue:

VCM II does not appear in the list of detected wireless devices in IDS and  its Power LED blinks at a periodic rate

 

Cause/Solution:

  • Verify the VCM II is connected to the DLC cable and the DLC cable is connected to the vehicle. The VCM II must be powered using the DLC cable for the wireless interface to be operational
  • Verify the ambient temperature is within the acceptable operating range for the VCM II's wireless interface: 0°C to 50°C (32°F to 122°F)
  • If the ambient temperature is outside this range allow the temperature to return to the acceptable operating range and the VCM II's wireless interface will automatically be enabled and the Power LED will stop blinking and stay illuminated
  • If VCM II wireless interface problem persists when the ambient temperature returns to its operating range, contact your regional technical support

 

Issue:

VCM II's Power LED blinks continuously after being powered using the DLC cable

 

Cause/Solution:

  • Verify the ambient temperature is within the acceptable operating range for the VCM II's wireless interface: 0°C to 50°C (32°F to 122°F)
  • If the ambient temperature is outside this range allow the temperature to return to the acceptable operating range and the VCM II's wireless interface will automatically be enabled and the Power LED will stop blinking and stay illuminated
  • If VCM II wireless interface problem persists when the ambient temperature returns to its operating range, contact your regional technical support or ask obdexpress.co.uk for help
