Welcome to the forum!
thanks for your reply, I also want to know if this tool can pro for key?Welcome to the forum!
That's the tool the Ford dealers use to communicate with the vehicle. What's the problem you're having? We're full service around here!
If you just need to read codes (OBD II), there are plenty of options available for about $50. The only reason you would need to pay more is if you had an ABS or Airbag issue and needed to electronically troubleshoot. We can help you will all that here for free.
really? Are you sure? But I have heard that it can program for Ford? Isn't it?:huh::huh:Hey man, I saw some words about this tool yesterday, say that: good diagnostic tool, yes; good programmer, no.
But I'm not sure if the newest version would be more powerful.
Hope this can help you.
So you actually BOUGHT one of these to be able to know whats inside of it? And you used it and it functions as it should? Is the Chinese softwareThe Ford VCM is completely made in the USA (which is partly why it costs more). It might use a few Chinese-sourced chips though. The thing was completely copied (pretty well I might add). The circuit boards are made with different materials (Tin plated vs. Gold plated) and slightly different components, but the boards look to have the exact same layout, so it looks like the plans were leaked (perhaps from one Chinese supplier to another). I wonder if the counterfeit ones say "Made in the USA" on the back or not.
You can buy a subscription for updates for about $25 I think that will last 48-72 hours. Enough to update all your cars at once if you have a VCM or a J2534 pass through tool.
I'm glad Microsoft still allows fake Windows users to download security updates otherwise the internet would be crashing every other day...
HECK NO! There are pictures on the Ford website of the internals. However, if I were made of money and had a really great credit card company I would buy these things and take pictures for you guys for fun. I have no idea if they'll run Ford's software without modifications or not.So you actually BOUGHT one of these to be able to know whats inside of it? And you used it and it functions as it should?

just cracked clones of the FORD USA software?
True, but you still get the critical ones.As far as MS goes, unless you have activated WGA, you DON'T get all the updates.
