Re: Testing firmware update function for Ford modules

I am able to use the VCX Nano from VXDiag with Ford's FJDS to program MS-CAN and HS-CAN modules. However, I was trying to push a newer calibration onto the GSM (Gearshift module) but it keeps reverting to the original calibration. Is there a way to force a newer strategy/calibration file using FJDS?...

Re: Testing firmware update function for Ford modules

Any details on the 2.4 beta?

Do we need a J2534 pass-through device to program HS-CAN and MS-CAN modules? Or can we use an ELM327? Or do we need a VCM2 as a J2534 pass-thru device?

Re: Testing firmware update function for Ford modules

What I had done was start a new session and update the modules with IDS. Then a few days later I ran Forscan and looked at the configuration tab and found the DDM, PDM, and ACM listed the original filenames. Shouldn't Forscan show the new filenames?

Re: Testing firmware update function for Ford modules

I have a genuine VCM2 and a OBDLink MX. I used IDS 114.03 to update the DDM, PDM, and ACM on my 2017 Fusion Sport but for some reason when I pull the logs and run FORSCan to check the configuration, these modules still show the old filenames even though I went through the full updating process in ID...

VCM2 with FJDS and MS-CAN modules?

Has anyone tried programming MS-CAN modules using FJDS (not IDS or FRDS but FJDS) and a VCM2? I heard that J2534 pass-thru devices and FJDS can't program on the MS-CAN, ISO, or UBP bus. However, because VCM2 is supposed to work with FJDS, I was wondering if this combo could program MS-CAN modules. S...

Recalibrate Ford GPSM?

Is there a way to recalibrate the GPSM in a 2013-up Ford Taurus SHO? I heard if I use a non-stock tire size that the GPSM needs to be recalibrated/reset. My Nav now shows me all over the place while driving, and about 10% of the time it is spot on.

Backup camera recalibration - what does it do??

I have a 2014 Ford Taurus SHO and have intermittent issues with the backup camera going black, lines disappearing, or getting the error message to take the car to the dealer. Someone said their dealer "fixed" the problem by using IDS to perform something on the car. I felt one thing I could try was ...

Re: Module Programming Issues - Ford Taurus (BCM/RCM)

I didn't see the option for Global Close in the IPC, so I guess it isn't physically available. Thanks!

I'm still trying to understand why the beltminder can't be disabled.

Module Programming Issues - Ford Taurus (BCM/RCM)

I have a 2014 Ford Taurus and was able to enable the AWD Gauge and Engine Hour Meter by programming the IPC Module using FORScan 2.3.3 beta. However, I am unable to disable the Driver and Passenger Beltminder via the RCM. Every time I try to set them to DISABLE, I see in the log "No changes in block...
