Issues & Causes/Solutions: VCM 2 & Temperature

Ford VCM II 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:

1.  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)
2.  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
3.  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:

1.  Verify the FORD 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
2.  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)
3.  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
4.  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:

1.  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)
2. 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
3. If VCM II wireless interface problem persists when the ambient temperature returns to its operating range, contact your regional technical support or ask Obd2tool.com for help

Professionals have not tested it yet!

21-1 21-2 21-3 21-4 21-5
verified to work no issues.!!!!!!!!!!
Odis install on Windows 7 or Windows 10?

Tip 1: install sw, connect 5054a head, install driver, run odis
No need any settings ;-)
After install, connect your vas5054a in OBD and USB, install driver.
Open your Odis! All will work :-)

Tip 2: Windows 7 x64, not windows 10
True, but only on win7 x64 not win 10 x64

“Windows 10 only supports the new diagnostic interface VAS 6154 (known as the WLAN remote head). Users of the older models Car Diagnostic Tool VAS 5054, VAS 5054A and VAS 5055 can continue to use the Windows 7 i.do client on existing systems until 2019 or acquire the Windows 7 i.do. client from IT Client Support for replacement devices. The new diagnostic interface can be used with both operating systems. Please place any necessary orders with Workshop.

Equipment in good time.”

Tip 3: a clean Windows 7 is the best way

I will prefer you to use windows 7 for all the diagnostic devices, this is because of the security of the windows 10. The best way to get a good working diagnostic program is to have one and only laptop for this. A clean windows 7 i are the best way, but this is only my experience

odis-e,-s on same laptop, Windows x64? x86?

Tip 1: odis-e odis-s same laptop, x64 better

Both odis e and odis s can work together on same laptop partition. no problem. For newer versions will be better x64.

Tip 2: x86 much better, no lack of functionality

x86 is soooo much better since there is no any lack of the functionality for any kind of driver of ur laptop , I test both x86 is better and u can install both yes ODIS-S and ODIS-E

Tip 3: on Windows 7 x64, perfect

Works perfectly on Windows 7 x64, I have Engineering 7.2.2, Service 4.1.4 and Service 4.2.3 in same partition and no problem, if you execute any of them in Windows 10 you won’t be able to select VAS 5054A

Tip 4: on Windows 7 64bit works very well

I installed on win7 64bit and it installed and I added the update file from the download, starts and works very well, thank you all for your guidance and comments.
