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

VCM2 clone (Vxdiag Vcx Nano)/ IDS version/ Driver Questions & Answers

I have both a vcx and a decent vcm2 clone, both from obdexpress.co.uk. I purchased the vcx first thinking I could get by with it and was sadly mistaken.

 

If you never intend to do anything other than read codes and live data then the vcx will do however I was never able to get it to reprogram anything or connect to ANY north american diesel trucks.

 

My vcm2 functions flawlessly including updating it and adding wireless to it with a pair of the proper wifi dongles.

 

Keep in mind when purchasing a vcm2 that there are look alike ones out there that are vcx nanos in vcm2 clothing. (I made that mistake as well lol) Buy it from someone who shows photos of the inside. the fake vcm2 will have a single pcb with one main chip and not allot else going on. A good vcm2 has a second pcb on a riser with two noticeable capacitors on it and both boards a nearly covered with components.

 

Look here: good VCM2 with 2 boards:

 

Which IDS software version for VCM2 clone SP177-C1?

 

If you want a VCM2 SP177-C1, IDS V100 software will come with the unit.

But if you have a VCM2 clone already and the unit is HQ clone (same as units in http://www.obdexpress.co.uk/producttags/vcm2.html ), you have luck with the latest IDS version 04-2018

The newest IDS compatible with VCM2 SP177C1 is version IDS 109:

Need install driver myself?

 

For vcm2 clone you can install vcm manager or ids and it will install drivers automatically.

For Vxdiag Vcx Nano Ford clone in vcm2 case use vx manager which will install drivers too.
