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.

Solution-to-Ford-VCM2-freezing-up-2

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.

How to Cheaply Add Horsepower with an ECM Flash

How-to-Determine-the-Proper-Engine-Rating-1

Electronic engines get a bad rap in the heavy duty diesel engine world due to the amount of issues that can go wrong with them. However, the good news is that if you have an electronic Caterpillar engine you can easily obtain more horsepower and torque via the ECM.

Re-rating an engine is an electronic process of powering up or down the default horsepower via the electronic control module (ECM). Re-rating a diesel engine is the easiest way to beef up an engine without digging into the hard internal parts. You can do modifications to the engine by changing out the pistons, injectors, the camshaft or damper. Adding an updated turbo is also another way to increase HP. However, these modifications are expensive and may not work as required which we will discuss later in this article.

To re-rate a CAT engine one must go to a CAT Dealer or Independent Certified CAT Distributor that has access to CAT Caterpillar ET (Electronic Technician) program. The CAT ET software will plug into the engine and get a diagnostic readout of the engine health. Once in CAT ET the ECM can be “flashed” or reprogrammed to power up or down within a given CAT Engine Family. You can only repower a Caterpillar engine within its given family.

CAT ECM Example Caterpillar ECM

How-to-Determine-the-Proper-Engine-Rating-2

For example a Caterpillar C7 has Families A, B, C, D, E and F. The Horsepower Rating ranges from 207 hp to 330 hp. Family A only has 3 horsepower and torque options whereas Family E has 7 options. If your engine serial number prefix is rated “A” then you must stay in the A Family. The pistons and injectors are different for each Family. It is impossible to simply go up a Family. The higher horsepower E and F Families are reserved for Fire Truck or RV Applications. So if you’re thinking you can easily increase your engine 200-300 HP you are mistaken.

There are two main way to determine the current horsepower rating of your engine. One is by simply looking at the data tag on the valve cover or timing cover. It will have the horsepower and torque rating of the engine. If you suspect the engine may have already been powered up or down from the original OEM specs you have two options: take it to a dealer or dyno testing facility. A CAT Dealer with CAT SIS and CAT ET will be able to plug into the electronic engine and they can do an ECM Download. This process takes about 5 minutes and will give a readout of fault codes, millage, current horsepower rating, torque, oil pressure etc… A dealer generally won’t charge you just for an ECM Readout. You can also have a full dyno test done which will give a full range of performance specs done on the engine.

Other things to consider when doing an ECM re-flash is whether or not the transmission is rated to handle the increase torque load. Transmissions are all about torque rating. An Allison, Eatonor Fuller Transmission all have something called the Nominal Torque Capacity Rating. Whatever that number is multiply it by 100 to get your maximum torque output allowed for that transmission. For example if a transmission has a tag number of RTO – 11909MLL the “11” or first number, is your Nominal Torque Capacity. That engine would be rated at 1100 ft/lbs of torque. Before doing a re-rating you must check to see if your transmission can handle the new workload. If your desired re-rating torque measurement is higher than your transmission’s capacity to handle the load then you will destroy your transmission.
Aftermarket Engine Modifications

CAT ET Adapter Kit CAT ET Adapter Kit

How-to-Determine-the-Proper-Engine-Rating-3

Earlier in the article we touched on doing aftermarket modifications to your CAT engine. We here at Capital Reman build our engines to OEM spec. We do that simply because playing in the “modification sandbox” can cause numerous issues with warranties. If you add aftermarket injectors, turbos, camshaft or manifolds to increase power it will automatically void any manufacturer warranty. The question is do aftermarket mods work? The answer is that they do indeed work and are the same quality as OEM these days however one must be careful tinkering with electronic engines as mods can overload various systems on the engine. Doing modifications can also decrease the life of the engine as it usually means increased exhaust temperature. If you are burning more fuel and creating more exhaust it will wear down the exhaust valves much faster. Aftermarket turbos can also clog easier when paired with an electronic engine with a SCR or DPF Filter. Some CAT Engines have turbo regeneration issues caused by the very intricate balance of re-circulated exhaust gasses by the emissions systems.

Some opt to further optimize their engine by seeking out illegal DPF Delete Kits to remove all emissions technology altogether. It is understandable why some go down that path as early emissions technology was prone to costly maintenance and performance issues however, newer engines with emissions upgrades actually have increased in horsepower and torque. If you do go down the aftermarket route just be aware that the warranty will be voided, performance upgrades are not a guarantee and that you might be further damaging/decreasing the life of your engine. Not to say aftermarket mods aren’t fun! There are tons of great aftermarket companies that make performance turbos, injectors, camshafts and more but get your pocket book ready as internal mods are expensive.
ECM Reflash Costs and Warnings

CAT Engine on DynoRe-flashing an ECM takes about 2 hours from start to finish at a CAT Dealer. The software is accessed via CAT ET and a flash file is downloaded to the ECM. This software is propriety to Caterpillar and is password protected. BUYER BEWARE! There are aftermarket CAT ET programs on for sale on the internet but none of them will work properly as the software needed is password protected at Caterpillar dealer. CAT Corporate charges the dealer about $250 per ECM Re-flash and the dealer will usually just charge labor to you the customer. Overall the cost of an ECM Re-flash is around $500. Not too bad to quickly power up your engine. If you go down the aftermarket/mods route for the ECM use a reputable Re-Power Company like Pittsburgh Power or ECM Diesel.

There are some dangers of ECM Re-Ratings. About 1/30 ECM Re-Flashes ends up with a destroyed ECM. The ECM can become corrupted or simply wipe itself of all data. The new flash file could simply be incompatible with the ECM in the engine and destroy it. Mostly these incidents occur with early model electronic engines that have more unstable electronics. CAT ECMs are not cheap ranging from $1,500-$2,000. You can purchase a used ECM however those are a gamble as the pin connectors and solders can be easily be bent or broken.

How-to-Determine-the-Proper-Engine-Rating-4

That being said, don’t let the possible ECM failure scare ya! Getting a little more juice out of your CAT Engine can easily be done with an ECM Re-Rate just make sure to do your homework and take your engine to a reputable source.

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

VIDA_header-01

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)
RAM: 6GB RAM
HARD DRIVE: 40GB free space

USB Editions System Minimum Recommendations:
CPU: Intel Core2Duo or better (32bit capable)
RAM: 3GB RAM
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 Tool.zip 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.

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.
