Hello guys,I do a review on the Allscanner VXdiag multi diagnostic tool (Ford/Mazda/Honda/JLR/Toyota/Subaru).
I own one of them with licence for Ford/Mazda/Honda/JLR.
I’ve been having problems using it with Ford/Mazda IDS at first but now I’ve come to a point where I succeed using it for programming Ford/Mazda cars.
To be honest… that’s the only function I was looking for…. Programming or reprogramming Ford/Mazda modules but I had honda & JLR licence for 10$ extra so I went for it, but Honda HDS software that works with it is very old… (3.014…useless) and I feel safer to run JLR with my cardaq+
DO NOT INSTALL PASSTHRU DRIVER , ONLY FORD VCM2 DRIVER
I think that’s the main reason I wasn’t able to program module with it… now that I only use VCM2 driver, it’s working.
I’m making a list of the functions I tried and the result of these tests.
2005 Ford Five Hundred (3L)Ford IDS 101.4 (VM)
GEM module reprogramming – SUCCESS
2008 Mazda 3 (2L)Mazda IDS 103.02
PCM module reprogramming – SUCCESS
2007 Ford Expedition (5.4L)Ford IDS 101.4 (VM)
DSCM module installation (PMI) – SUCCESS
LTM Liftgate/trunk module reprogramming – SUCCESS
PCM module reprogramming – FAILED (had to use FMP)
Edit : Allscanner confirmed the problem with 5.4 engine
