Solution to Ford VCM2 freezing up when opting parameters

Question: I am able to use Ford VCM 2 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.


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.

What can I do with a Tech 2 scan tool

Answer for ” What can I do with a Tech 2 scan tool?”:

GM Tech 2 is a diagnostic tool for the most part. It can be used to program out/in certain RPO’s in the BCM and can be used to bleed the ABS brake system without introducing air into the system. The extent to which it can be used to tune a C5 corvette is that if you have a PCM Image that will work for your car you can save the current PCM Image and flash the new one you have onto the PCM. It cannot go in and individually change the tuning tables in the PCM as can say either EFI Live or HP Tuners tuning tools. But then those tools cannot touch the BCM either.

If you do or plan to do a lot of diagnostic work on your car it can be a worthwhile tool. Most of the diagnostic charts in the factory service manual assume the availability of a Tech 2. But you have to learn to use the tool like any other computerized diagnostic tool. It has layers and layers of menues to wade through. But in certain diagnostic situations it can be an invaluable tool because it allows you to turn on and off hundreds of computerized settings to aid in the diagnosis process.

GM intentionally dumbed down the capabilities of the Tech 2 to change things to avoid law suits due to an errant technician that changed engine or emissions settings that could result in engine damage or emissions violations.

Good to know: There are many factories working for Tech 2 production, including the genuine from the dealership and the clone by Chinese.

If you are just looking for a decent Tech 2 for use, a working china clone can be a good option. But you should make sure of the quality!

VIDA Dice 2014D VM Image – Download Link


First and foremost, we are a community that supports each other wilfully. Because of the help I’ve received here, I decided to return that to the whole community. I use a 4K display so you MIGHT need to change the resolution on first boot with your machine to adjust to size if you are not using a 4K equivalent. When logging in, use ‘admin’ or ‘1’. The only app you can use, and thankfully need to use is the ‘all-in-one’. The rest on the desktop are pointless. If you wish to check that your download completely without errors or issues, below is the MD5 hash. Enjoy! If you buy a device or VM with the newer look to it, please let me know. Several people out there are currently selling the VIDA VMs or laptops with VIDA preinstalled and are using all of my hard work for profit. My work is for people to download themselves, use for themselves. Not for someone to sell and make a profit on. VIDA isn’t mine but I made the newer interface and that is how you can tell if you are using my work. If you buy something with it on it, request your money back. You can get it here for free! I’m not trying to be a *****. If you want to sell a VM or laptop with VIDA, do so, but don’t include my work and sell it off as something newer or that you did. For all of those people that want VIDA installed on your existing system but have issues or just don’t want to attempt it, I’ve will install everything remotely for a flat 30$. You’ll need to have all the required files downloaded but I will let you know what files to grab when we are setting up the time to do it. If you want to have me test the DICE after install, you will need internet at your car. If you have any questions, feel free to ask here in the thread. It might answer a question someone else had too! Arrangement of scheduling can be done via PM, phone or email.
I’ve built a new ISO for those that want to directly install on their systems with the updates already applied. It also contains all the needed files for the install whether on 32bit or 64bit and all 3 patches for the different ways to install… (32bit, 64bit, 32bit installed on 64bit) (24 Nov, 2018)

Virtual Machine System Minimum Recommendations:
CPU: Intel i3-2100 or better (64bit required)
HARD DRIVE: 40GB free space

USB Editions System Minimum Recommendations:
CPU: Intel Core2Duo or better (32bit capable)
STORAGE DEVICE: 32GB or better USB 3.0 (Recommend SanDisk Extreme)
Legacy Boot Mode Support (UEFI won’t boot)

Patches, Documents & Walk-throughs can be downloaded from any of the download links below
Download Links:
Image Download – (Google Drive) – Download Here <– NEW LINK
VMWare Player – VMware Player
VirtualBox – VirtualBox Image Here
7-ZIP – You’ll need this

Virtual Machine Setup:
1. Download the virtual machine 7zip image
2. Download VMWare Player or VMWare Fusion. This will depend on which OS you have running.
3. If you have Windows but don’t have 7zip. Download it. I believe most Linux distros support 7z files out of the box or can be easily installed via the Software Centre. If you are on Mac OS, you can use ‘The Unarchiver’ available via the App Store.
4. Once you have everything downloaded, install your hypervisor of choice. This would be VMWare Player or Fusion. Advanced users can use virtual box with minor modifications I believe.
5. Extract the 7z image file you downloaded to a contained folder. The password is V0lv02Rule You can run it from this location or move it to another location. Doesn’t matter.
6. Locate the file ‘Service Machine.vmx’ and double click on this file. It will open your hypervisor. You may be asked if you copied or moved this. Just click moved.
7. If you want to adjust the VM image settings now if the time to do so. Things like number of cores dedicated to the VM and how much RAM you want it to be allowed to use.
8. Make sure you set the USB setting up to match your machine. If you plug the DICE into a USB 2.0 port it needs to be USB 2.0. If you use a USB 3.0 port, it needs to be set to USB 3.0
9. Run it and enjoy.

USB Image Setup: (For more advanced users)
1. Download the image from the builds folder
2. Download the USB Imaging file from the tools folder
3. If you have Windows but don’t have 7zip. Download it. I believe most Linux distros support 7z files out of the box or can be easily installed via the Software Centre. If you are on Mac OS, you can use ‘The Unarchiver’ available via the App Store.
4. Once you have everything downloaded, extract the USB Imaging Tool.
5. Run the tool. Select your USB drive from the list on the left. Click Restore. A window will open to locate the IMZ file. In the bottom right is a drop-down menu, change it to ‘Compressed (zip) image files’. Locate the folder where you downloaded to and select the IMZ file. Click yes to restore and overwrite the USB drive.
6. Run it and enjoy.

Q: My system specs are… Which one should I run.
A: Which ever one you want, system specs are based on the one you choose to run. Virtual Machine is the easiest to get up and running and requires the least amount of effort from you.
Q: Are the system requirements actually what’s required to run?
A: Yes and No. For the virtual machine no. You could have less RAM and a slower processor and it will still run. For the USB images, yes without more modification of the images.
Q: Unable to open the file Service Machine.7z
A: Download 7-Zip from the link above AND make sure you have the password
Q: How do I log in?
A: Use ‘admin’ or ‘1’ and press enter
Q: How do I go about checked the MD5 or SHA256 to ensure I have downloaded without error?
A: I recommend Quickhash-GUI. If you have a Mac or run Linux, they both have md5sum built in but require CLI knowledge so I won’t recommend it.
Q: I have logged in, my DiCE unit is detected but I can’t click on diagnosis tab. Did I do something wrong?
A: Most likely, you have not selected all the options for the vehicle profile.
Q: Does the VMWare image support 32bit?
A: NO! But the USB edition does
Q: I’m on a Mac and can’t find VMWare Player for it, what do I use?
A: You’ll need to obtain a copy of VMWare Fusion
Q: Will there be a VirtualBox version?
A: It is very likely just to help out the Mac users…
Q: What are the system requirements?
A: System requirements are for the VMWare image is a 64bit dual-core processor and 4GB RAM. Please know that with 4GB of RAM, you will be moving SLOWLY. I recommend at least 6Gb RAM. If you only meet the minimum requirements, try the USB edition.
Q: I have 7-zip and it is giving me errors extracting the files. What is going on?
A: Double check that the download completed correctly. You can do this using the MD5 Hash posted above.
Q: Why doesn’t the VMware Image detect my DiCE unit?
A: The VMware Image may be configured for different USB specifications than the port you are trying to use. If you have a system with USB 3.x, you need to update the ‘Machine Settings’ to reflect a USB 3.x bus. Same with USB 2.0. Depending on the build of the VM depends on which USB port revision was set to. Drivers have already be install for the Intel buses.
Q: I’ve installed an update or patch but nothing happened?
A: Try rebooting, if that didn’t work, ask for help.
Q: I have a 32GB USB flash drive but it won’t fit. What do I do?
A: While in the USB Flash Tool, click on the options tab. Select the option to truncate the image.

The new GM MDI can be used only in the Pass-Thru method. This means you can use it as your programming tool, while your Tech 2/CANdi remains available for diagnostics and other duties.

The GM MDI is initially being introduced with Pass-Thru programming capabilities only. It can be used to perform Pass-Thru programming on all vehicles built since 1996 and will support all vehicles into the future.

The GM MDI will be required to perform diagnostics on selected NAO vehicles for model year 2009. Diagnostic software is scheduled to be released for the GM MDI during the fourth quarter of 2008.

Regulations require programming procedures to be compliant with SAE Recommended Practice J2534. The GM SPS is compliant with SAE Recommended Practice J2534, and the GM MDI is compliant with the portions of SAE J2534 that are applicable for GM vehicles.

What protocols does the GM MDI support?

For immediate use — At present, vehicles have two buses on the 16 pin connector
(high speed and low speed GMLAN). The GM MDI communicates using all of the existing GM protocols, the same as the Tech 2:
– Class 2
– KWP2000
Beginning with the 2008 model year vehicles, Pass-Thru will be the only programming method available. (Remote will continue to be available for previous vehicles.)

How to solve when it doesn’t connect the MDI?

(Solved) VXDIAG VX Manager license expiration 12/31/2020

Got everything up and running. I noticed the VX Manager license showed an expiration of 12/31/2020. That about right?

Yea, about right, and when I was setting up TIS2000 and upgraded the license for it, noticed that it was slightly longer date than the initial nano license to start with when I was setting up T2w. So got a feeling that is only upgrades the license for so long from a given date,, but if you go in later, it will further the license by the same time frame for a later date instead.

The only really downside I see, is in GDS2 for the GM MDI side of things, and wondering if there is going to be any updates to the cracked version. Hence in GDS2, GM global 2016.4.0 , the latest corvette is the 2016 model, with nothing listed for 2017, nor 2018 models.

With any luck, they get the on cloud version completed for GM, and it will either have the updates, or at least allow you to use the online version for the 2017 and later GM models instead.

If you did not see the cloud version, go to VX manager, to the far right tab, and will bring you up to speed.

Subaru new key program Possible to do with SSM3 on VXDIAG

This is for the question: Can I buy a VXDIAG SUBARU SSM-III to program new keys?

The answer can be: Yes!
Here are the customer reviews with tips and guides.

tip and review 1: SSM was the only thing that would program the prox fobs

It is a bit different from most. I make and program keys for a living and for a while the SSM was the only thing that would program the prox fobs. Not true anymore but I still paid less for the VXdiag with software than I would for a single piece of software for my T-code pro. . and there are 3 for Subaru. I have one which only covers the earliest models.

tip and review 2: SSM talk to everything on the car incl. immo

I have one from and find it useful as it will talk to everything on the car, including immobilizer systems. . . it emulates the SSM3 and uses cracked SSM software (which is why it’s such a pain to set up). It is *extremely* picky about OS. I wound up having to buy a new(ish) laptop running win7 to get it going. Wouldn’t work with XP or 10.

tip and review 3: need an immobilizer code to program keys/fobs

You have to have a NASTF LSID or be very good friends with a Subaru parts manager.

You need an immobilizer code (which is VIN specific) to program keys/fobs. It does not change so once you have it for your car you can go nuts. Odds are your dealer would probably give you YOUR immobilizer code if you shop there somewhat regularly. They may charge you for it as I know they have to pay a couple of bucks to mama subie for them.

There’s also an ‘enabling password’ which is also static and I suppose is a very flimsy extra layer of security to protect the immobilizer features of the SSM. It’s 3781.

tip and review 4: need a code from the dealer

It definitely does more than a regular scanner.

It just depends on if you think having complete access to all the systems in the car is worth it. It’s nice to have when I need it. I had a VDC code that was for the steering angle sensor. Rather than go to the dealer, I just busted out the knock off SSM and calibrated it in the driveway.

I tried to reprogram a new key with it, but you need a code from the dealer.

This is the subaru select monitor iii cable i am using:


Good to know:
When you do have a key, there are a variety of ways to program your key fob which are Subaru model specific. In one example, you have to use your lock/unlock buttons on your driver’s side door to input a serial number located inside of your key fob. In another, you have to insert your key in the ignition and turn it on and off before pressing the buttons on your key fob. These sound really simple. But there’s a huge catch. Most of the newer Subaru models can’t be reprogrammed from home. That’s because many of the new Subarus have a proximity key, push button start, and don’t actually use a key at all.

All of these DIY methods require the skill and know-how before you start the process, because they all have to be done very quickly once you start. In the first example, you have to input the serial number using the lock and unlock buttons on your driver side door within 30 seconds of beginning; the serial numbers are about 8 digits long. Then you have to input it again. If the first number is “4” you would press: lock-lock-lock-lock, unlock, and then move on to the next number. So if the first 3 numbers are “412” you would press: lock-lock-lock-lock, unlock, lock, unlock, lock, lock. Though this seems simple, you have to do it exactly correctly two times in a row, within 1 minute total. Talk about stressful!

In the second example, you have to turn your key from the “off” to “on” position in your ignition 10 times within a matter of seconds. Sometimes just turning it to the “on” position to get going down the road is a challenge. All of these methods are only possible on older Subaru models that utilize a key, don’t have a proximity key, and don’t have complex technology systems like automatic lift gates.

If you have the patience for any of these methods, there are online tutorial for your specific make and model. Google will help you a lot.
