Preparation:

Porsche PIWIS 2 V18.15 V17.500 Free Download

A forced PDK update is required when a vehicle possesses the Q033 ROM and an open campaign update is not visible via the PIWIS tool. This procedure will update the PDK to a Q061 or newer ROM. This update is required to run the latest PDK OTS maps with custom features such as faster shift speeds, sequential shifter stalk, dual paddle to neutral, no kickdown, and no creep. These features would otherwise not be possible running the Q033 ROM.

Applicable Model/Year

2013-2016 Porsche 981 Cayman and Boxster (Base, S, GTS) w/ PDK Transmission

2012-2016 Porsche 911.1 NA Carrera (Base, S, GTS) w/ PDK Transmission

2014-2016 Porsche 911 Turbo and Turbo S w/ PDK Transmission

Note: The update process does take some time (30 to 45 minutes), so it is important to have a battery charger (10A to 12A recommended, or a charger with a “flash” setting will work) on the car’s battery during this process. It would also be a good idea to keep a charger on the PIWIS II computer as well.

NOTE: BEFORE PROCEEDING, ACCESSPORT MUST BE UNINSTALLED FROM VEHICLE.

Porsche PIWIS 2 Forced PDK Update Procedures:

1.Connect a battery charger to the car’s battery, put the key in the “ON” position (engine off), and turn on the PIWIS II tool. The Car Diagnostic Tool PIWIS II will need to be connected to the OBD II port at his point as well.
2.At the main menu on the PIWIS II, select DIAGNOSTICS >> 911 >>> 991. Your selection may vary if you have a Boxster/Cayman.

If you also like to unlock the radio, please complete the following procedure, using the Tech 2 scanner, in order to properly set up communication:

At the System Selection Menu screen, select: Body

At the Vehicle Identification screen, select the following:

– Appropriate model

– Appropriate Air Conditioning

– Navigation Radio

Select: Navigation Radio.

Select: Special Functions.

Select: VIN Relearn.

Then you will get a message: “Do you want to clear radio theft information?”

To begin clearing, press the soft touch key on the top right of the scan tool. The scan tool will display “Clearing Radio Theft in Progress.”

Solution to Ford VCM2 freezing up when opting parameters

Question: I am able to use Ford VCM II to read and clear any dtcs etc so it is recognizing vehicle, just freezing up when opting parameters ? I am working on Ford 2014 custom.

I have vcm2 clone.

Solution-to-Ford-VCM2-freezing-up-when-opting-parameters

I’ve had similar before but was on my faulty vcm i think. Freezing is usually because of something which can’t communicate quick enough and ends up timing out.

You could reset the vcm via the red reset button, it’ll force ids to reload the firmware to the vcm which will be whatever firmware you have in the ids that is loaded, v101 I think you said.

You do have the vcm2 clone yes.

Remove the rubber end boot to reveal the button then have that pressed and held then plug usb lead into laptop and wait for beep then let go of the button, ids should prompt you to load the firmware so agree.

Next if the problem persists you need to look at reloading the laptop.

It is possible that the vcm is going though does it show the red padlock and red vcm icon on the task bar or does the lock disappear? Does the vcm show computer light flashing? Do you hear bing bong like it is missing connection?

Can you do a fresh install of w7 and v86 with license? That is the best ids for euro 4 transits if that is what you are working on?

Right it’s not as simple as running native v86 then which was going to be my suggestion.

I have v96 running and it works on my 65 custom.

I don’t want to write your vcm off but the only things you can do is.
Change cables.
Reset vcm.
Change software on laptop.
Change laptop completely.
There maybe vcm diagnostics available in ids but as it is a clone vcm i wouldn’t trust it.
