I had a VCMII and it lasted a bit over a year, with very lite use(maybe used 10 times). It had trouble in the cold too.Automate wrote:I realize the inexpensive VCX and VCM2 from China are clones but what makes them "bad"satria_wr wrote:Its the same as VCM2 with a single board (which is very bad clone of VCM2).
Has anybody had a problem with them? If so what was the problem? Never worked at all? Not reliable? Missing features? Failed after a few uses?
It also was not able to flash a PCM, no matter how much I tried. I had a spare PCM if it failed, but it never could even start the process - let alone screw it up.
The seller told me it would not likely flash, and they would probably buy the Ford VCM if they needed it for daily flashing. At least they were honest.
It took longer and longer to find the vehicle, until one day it just never did.
I may have a case with my credit card company to warranty it under extended warranty.
This is the cheap VCMII(about 130 shipped), not the single chip one but it had one of the 12V flashing jack connected with a wire.
If I get money back I may get a NANO, but I read some bad reviews about it when it comes to flashing using IDS.
