Vxdiag Nano, VCM2, VCM IDS3, which best for Ford diagnostic and programming?

December 15, 2018 by 3635OBD2  

pro-and-con: Vxdiag Nano Ford scanner has diagnostic and programming capability or not? If not, what tools can perform both best: good quality VCM2 from China? VCM IDS3 by Fly? or Launch X431 V tablet?




Positive side: Vxdiag Nano for Ford has diagnostic and programming capability


Feedback 1:

Awesome. Now I have Ford dealer level diagnostic and programming capability for my 2010 Lincoln MKT and 1999 F150. Was able to read codes, do some diagnostic functions, and program a new smart key for my MKT.

I am running this on an ancient Dell D630 laptop running Win7 32 bit.


Here’s what I did:

Changed the time zone on my computer to Beijing time zone (not sure if this is necessary or not)
Installed a copy of VMWare Player
Copied the contents of the CD to my computer desktop
Opened VMWare and created a new virtual machine, selecting the VM file that I transferred to my desktop (largest file in the folder)
Edit virtual machine settings to increase RAM usage to 2gb (it runs very slow with any less)
Play virtual machine file (mine was FORD IDS V107 EN)
Connect the VCX Nano via USB cable
When the VM opens, click “Player” in the top left of the window and scroll down to removable devices
My adapter was called “Future Devices USB Serial Converter” in the window
Click Connect (Disconnect from Host)
Wait for the Virtual Machine to load
Plug the adapter into your car
Click IDS in the virtual machine window and connect to your vehicle
You’re in!

Make sure to watch some videos or read about IDS functions so you don’t break anything as this software has the capability to erase and reprogram modules. Now you never have to pay Ford to diagnose your car again! This is cheaper than one hour of diag time at the dealer.



Feedback 2: add a key to the vehicle PATS system succeed

1: I purchased the device because I needed to add a key to the vehicle PATS system as I only had one key when I brought the car and really wanted a spare in case of loss or damage


The device was able to delete all old keys from the system then and add 2 new keys, whilst I was there I did some software updates on the PCM.


Honestly it really is a good device and works perfectly once you get over the software issue.


A bit of advice with the software is use virtual machine (its easier to delete and start again), and follow video guides found on youtube.


Here is a quick guide for my success:

Use Virtual machine installer found on CD V100, install VM then create a VM

Then on the virtual machine

Install calibration from V81 CD

Install V91 from V100 CD and reboot without opening software

Once rebooted open software and agree to 3 day licence, enter any details

Close software and Install V96 and reboot without opening

Once rebooted you can open software

Install software on CD V100 for the VX device

At this point I just installed deep freeze found on cd V100


Feedback 3: programming modules OK

Product works as designed. Installation was a breeze and troubleshooting within 8-10 minutes of taking it out of the box. I ran through several of the programming modules and all working as expected. For some test you will need the VMM. Overall very satisfied with this product.


Feedback 4: do PCM updates for a Ford and Lincoln OK


Negative side: Key programming not OK, diagnosis OK

Vxdiag for reprogramming is slower than VCM2.For diagnostic is the same. But for new software is Vxdiag better because (black list)only if you have VCM2 with not blacklisted serial.


In Conclusion:

  1. The good quality VCMII clone from china works just like original, which are tested doing good job for both diagnosis and programming.

I bought the SP177-C1 (mhauto forum user suggested)

The inner board seems good… upload photos…



  1. VCM IDS 3 has key programming and module initialization capacity.

Tried my new VCM software and it works . Automatically logs on to the Ford IDs server. key programming and module initialization can work.


Actually, It’s a new “pass thru” device.

Available from here


IDS is out of date. Current version is V110The Vcm 3 works a treat had no problems yet. and running V110.


if you don’t have a licensed IDS or valid subscription. These VCM IDS 3’s could work well as a pass thru device.
Ford does support pass thru devices & provides software for them – Again it’s subscription based.

Only reservation I have is IDS software it’s supplied with. Obviously it’s been rewritten to provide automatic login to Ford’s Servers.
When required to gain access to vehicle security on latest vehicles.

Bearing that in mind. If try to use IDS from Ford. That automatic login would be lost.
We don’t yet know how the ids3 connects do we? It’s like anything tho, for now it works so use it, make your money back and hope it lasts, same principle as the clone vcm1 and 2.

Attach 6 images on how to do Mondeo module key programming by VCM IDS 3 V104.04:

  1. Or Launch X431 V 8″+ tablet has module programming capacity.

Reading from the first picture X431 V 8″ tablet newest Ford V46.42 can test different Ford models up to 2017. It currently includes PCM, ABS, 4WAL, RCM,EATC, ECS, IABM, RAP, PAM, 4X4, 4WAS, CTM, OTC, ICM, PATS, ARC, LCM, DDM…”

How to make X431 HD work in the Android device without X431pad?

December 12, 2018 by 3635OBD2  

The X431 original Pad use Android OS, therefore the app for X431 adapter can be use with the Android device without X431 Pad original!

LAUNCH X431 HD Heavy Duty Adapter


Just use my link and install it on any appropriate android.



It can work on both cars and trucks if you have the appropriate subscription.

Also, the good folks who manage x-diag pro can hook you up with the subscription to cover both trucks and cars, ie 12v and 24v.


That means: For 12v truck easydiag can work if you have files ect. But for 24v truck u will blown unit  Original Xpro3 or launch devices for truck 24v use adaptor to protect unit .

BCM physical wiring



Land Rover RFA 2m53J 9S12XET256 wiring diagram in the CG Pro software.



Land Rover RFA smart ECU physical wiring:

You need not connect the clock line first, if you get message to decrypt when reading, then connect the clock line according to the software wiring diagram.



Select BCM or RFA module, read and save the data.





Tip: after the data is read out, do not unplug the cable and adapters immediately, because you are required to write key and then rewrite data later.



Part 2: Load the data into CG Pro software to program key

Click on “Key” – ” Jaguar / Land Rover” – Model [KVM – XEP100 (BCM) for example], then click on “Key Function” to enter the key programming menu options incl. load KVM DFLASH, load KVM EEPROM, Load BCM DFLASH, Read key, Write key etc.





KVM Key programming tips:

Step 1: Load KVM DFLASH


Step 2: Load KVM EEPROM

This function is for emergency start (optional). If you need to operate this option, please read out the BCM immo data and meanwhile tick on this option when key is programming, then load BCM data.


Step 3: Place a blank key into the CG Pro key programmer, click on “Read key” button.

***Can read key ID and check if the key is placed correctly.


Step 4: Select key position and then click on “Write key” button.



Please save the data in the order of DFLASH,EEPROM,BCM.


Part 3: Rewrite the data generated after key matching.



  1. Back to the main menu where you read out the data just now.
  2. Open the corresponding data saved after the key is written.
  3. Write data after connecting the computer.



Now, you can remove all the cables, then reinstall the KVM module back to the car.


Big thanks to CG PRO for what it can do!

Can I buy Lonsdor K518ise for BMW CAS keys only?

December 7, 2018 by 3635OBD2  

Hello, mates I bought Lonsdor K518ise for CAS keys. The ford nissan and toyota can be done by even other very cheap programmers.

Lonsdor K518ise


As long as Lonsdor cannot do BMW CAS keys it is useless to me. On all other cars I have even cheaper tools that don’t even cost half the cost of Lonsdor updates that do the job. Don’t tell me about toyota, ford, nissan etc and argue that Lonsdor is still agood tool. I hate this people who distroyed this tool with passion. I wish they could be hit by lightning. They have messed up my business and my life after spending so much on this tool.


In my country CAS3 is the most common bmw. Cas 3+ is starting to come in. If lonsdor could work as I had planned, by the time FEM and cas 3++ become common I would have bought another tool that can do them.


Lonsdor was doing everything for me on BMW here in my earth until your friends messed it up.


It was good for a starter if u get my point. I know its not the best but at least I was doing well on CAS2 and 3 until they messed it up. So instate of paying $600 for this unreliable tool I will rather add more slowly until I afford vvdi2.


Since removing the car logos, my lonsdor cant do anything successfully on bmw. And on my tool BMW is red. Meaning soon I will have to pay for updates in order for it to work properly like before


I had successfully done CAS 2 and 3 easily and also several times synchronised DME on cars that that were failing to start. Now my tool cant do any of those successfully


Here are references i used:

How to update cloned GM MDI serial number

December 6, 2018 by 3635OBD2  

Here are some great tips and guides of GM MDI clone serial number update if you need to.


The GM MDI serial number is in the 16mb on board flash memory – the intel chip on the computer sub-board.

You can get u-boot access by making up a serial cable. Signals are available on the 8 pin mini din on the outside of the MDI case. pin 1 goes to PC TX (MDI
RX), pin 2 goes to PC RX (MDI TX). Pin 3 goes to ground. Then when you boot:

Quote:U-Boot 1.1.4 (Dec 21 2007 – 12:11:55) ETAS VCI

macaddr – display or store MAC address in Strataflash
mapadd – add a memory map item
mapdel – delete a memory map item
mapinfo – display the memory map information
md – memory display
mm – memory modify (auto-incrementing)

The problem is the serial number and MAC flash partitions are misaligned from
the flash erase block boundaries, which forces them to mount read only. Because
of this the update commands don’t work
