Ford module programming with Ford VCM 2 clone
VCM2 manual: NEW module programming using Ford IDS software
You need Ford IDS software, original or crack
(VCM2 genuine definitely is the best solution, but a high-quality one should work great, not cheap crappy tools)
VCM 2 is the new Ford OEM diagnostic tool
When installing a new module, the configuration data must be transferred from the old module beforeit is removed. The new module of Ford IDS Software will then be programmed using this information. Use the followingsteps to download the data from the existing module and program the new module:
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 “Programmable Module Installation”
Step 5: From the fly out menu, select the type of module to be installed
Step 6: Select the tick mark or the Enter key
Step 7: Make sure that an Internet connection has been established and then select “Confirm”
Step 8: Follow the instructions on the screen. These instructions vary depending on the type ofmodule being installed.
NOTE: Be sure to follow these instructions in the exact order that they are given. Do not remove or install any modules until instructed to do so. Failure to follow the instructions correctly may result in the configuration data received during vehicle identification to program incorrectly or not at all.
Step 8A: If Ford Module Programming was unable to retrieve the configuration data due to either
a non-functioning module or a module which was removed before the data was retrieved, the
application will request that the user obtain information from the Module Build Data (As Built)
database. Access to this database is included in the Ford Module Programming subscription. The
data can be obtained by doing the following:
● Go to the Motorcraft website (www.motorcraft.com)
● Go to the Technical Resources area
● Log in using the User ID and password set up when the subscription to Ford Module
Programming was purchased
● Select “My Subscriptions”
● Select “Ford Module Programming”
● Select “Module Build Data (as Built)”
● Enter the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) and select “Submit”
● Write down the information that was requested by the Ford Module Programming
● Return to the Ford Module Programming application and enter the requested information
Step 9: 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.
NOTE: It is the responsibility of the technician to inform the customer that Ford Motor Company will not reimburse the vehicle owner for field service actions that are not completed at a Ford or Lincoln/Mercury dealership.
Step 10: When the “Programming complete” screen appears, select the tick mark or the Enterkey. If PATS initialization is required, Ford Module Programming may automatically link to the PATSparameter reset and/or key relearn procedures. Two ignition keys may be required to complete the
PATS initialization procedure.
Step 10A: If PATS initialization is required and Ford Module Programming did not link to thatfunctionality automatically, go to the Toolbox tab and select “PATS”. Detailed instructionsare provided in Section 6.
