I too have the VCM2 and cannot use it due to the firmware difference between bosch’s latest firmware and Ford’s integrated diagnostic software(IDS). After I downloaded bosch’s latest firmware from their website,I wasn’t able to use IDS anymore until I backdated the firmware to the version that IDS is programmed to use. I’ve also got a USB-Link™ 2: Bluetooth Edition, Autoenginuity SP03, IC4COM, & Nav-Link that I’ve yet to try. Does anybody know if any of these others work with Forscan?

Hi all,

I'm using a PEAK PCAN-USB adapter with up-to-date passthru driver. Can high and low are connected to HS can bus of Ford Mondeo 2001+.

J2534 adapter is found in ForScan (Adapter: PCANPT32) but it does not connect to vehicle (no communication, check that ignition is on).

Any ideas how to get that working?

Best regards!
