Ford IDS 109 FAQs:

 

It VCM 1 is compatible?

Yes, it can work with Ford VCM 1 clone

 

Works good with VCM2 clone?

I have Chinese clone VCM2 SP177-C1 and it works great with impressive speed. I would definitely recommend this guy.

 

Hi how about Online ? It will be work with cloned VCMII ?

can do online , work with original and clone VCMs

 

So just to confirm the testman.exe and other DLLs in the Runtime folder are all v109? I’ve found that many other hacked versions are build using v106 and not all features work with 2017+ vehicles. 

i know , some softwares can not work with 2017 cars , i know what to do for supporting 2017 cars .
i will change some files for it .

 

What is the price??? and where to?

$79.99 with free shipping, installation & activation service

Someone please test 2017 f150 key programming north america model

For F150 2017 need minimum IDS and NASTF account !!!

 

I have a vmware version of IDS 108.07, that appears to be built on 106 based on the file versions of a lot of the DLLs in the Runtime folder. Using a genuine VCM II with the 2.4.73.49 firmware, I canNOT do TCM module programming on a 2017. 

Never tried TCM on 2017+ but that’s a possibility.
All hack I’ve seen are based on v86, v101 or v106.
Never seen a hack based on v109 executables and DLLs .. that’s why I’m asking but he won’t answer that question.

 

What vcm2 firmware are you using ??

My point is.. all “good” clone can upgrade firmware to 2.4.73.49 no problem.

On newer vehicle’s BCM replacement, the procedure requires to get configuration restored ( looks like JLR process ). After you done PMI of the said BCM you must complete that configuration restore or the BCM installation won’t be completed and so DTC will show up and/or the bcm won’t work correctly. I’m not talking about PATS functions which do need a dealer login or other tools to complete.

Once again my point is you do require firmware 2.4.73.49 for this procedure on most newer cars like 2015 + focus or escape and probably other model too. Running this procedure with 2.3.85.7 or older firmware will show error in the process.

Now that being said, if your software allow the use of 2.4.73.49 firmware, and has the v109 testman.exe and other executable files, then it should be working. But if you are using v86 testman.exe and other executable files and DLL with odler firmware, I strongly recommend not trying to install BCMs on newer car. And so other functionality might not work too.

 

Here is a bcm replacement failed with firmware 2.3.85.7 and IDS 107. Same I’d happening with v108 and v109. You do require newer firmware.

Dr.GINI B020 version Software vs. B020 verion

We have discussed Dr.GINI B020 version software in detail in previous post. Here you can download newer B021 version for free.
Note: B021 is not the latest version,  latest B022 is not for free.  Latest BMW ICOM HDD also comes with free Dr.GINI engineering software.
Introduction:
The friend who made this is called Dr.GINI.
The advantage of this program is that can be used on both E-series and F-series.
Function:
The interface supports K+DCANENET cable, Passthru, ICOM and ICOM next
The friend is great,but sometimes this tool is likely to be paid.

AP132.DLL: Use if error occurs during installation
ECU: Use in Expert menu
EDIABAS: EDIABAS installation file
INTERFACES: EDIABAS.INI file for each interface
MAPS: Latest lookup.xml file for map updates
setup Dr.GINI EN Basic.exe: B021 installation file based on B020
The difference between B020 and B021 is…
-Convenient to use ICOM in Interface
dr.gini-b021-software-2
-Units menu to complement and add FSC, instrument panel, FRM functions
dr.gini-b021-software-3
-Map update FSC code extraction
dr.gini-b021-software-4
-Instrument cluster
dr.gini-b021-software-5
Now let’s look at the Dr.Gini main features (use older version as example):

Deleting fault code of module is very fast and quick
In the functional window, click 1.Identification 2.Read Errors at the bottom
dr.gini-b021-function-1
Module in error is shown in red, click “Clear Errors” in the bottom right corner.
dr.gini-b021-function-2
A list of error deleted. The time required is within a few seconds…
You don’t have to turn Rheignold to try to delete the fault code.
dr.gini-b021-function-3
Gauge and actuators
dr.gini-b021-function-4
dr.gini-b021-function-5

How to troubleshoot Porsche 996 airbag with Foxwell NT510

Customer solution:

I picked up a Foxwell NT510 multi-system scanner in December,2017, I ordered the Porsche version (you can get one model). Their spec sheet says it works with my car year and model-Porsche 2002 911 Carerra.

I just got around to trying it last night, and it is pretty interesting, lots of good stuff in a small handheld unit.

One if the first things I wanted to do is resetting airbag lights – both of my cars have them on (one because I replaced the seats with the battery connected, and the other because it had racing seats in it before I put the stock seats back in).

The unit works fine, it reads codes, can track real time values, etc. But I can’t figure out how to see the airbag stuff, and I think I’ve looked at all of the menus.

When I google this, the YouTube video shows a guy whose NT510 has a Porsche logo on the home screen, in addition to the OBD II icon. Mine doesn’t have a Porsche (or any other manufacturer) icon, so I’m wondering if I have to install, configure, or download something to activate it.

I do have an email out to their support people.  They replied very quickly and suggested me registering my unit. Users can register and then download/upgrade the software for a specific automaker.  That was exactly what the issue was.
For posterity:

  • I needed to register with Foxwell, get an ID
  • Once I registered, I needed to login to their portal and register my NT510 using a serial number and password that is on the help screen in the device
  • I needed to install their desktop software
  • Remove the microsim from the side of the unit
  • Plug the microsim into the microsim/usb adapter (supplied)
  • Download the Porsche software (select Porsche and click download – the first car brand is free, subsequent car brands are an additional charge)
  • Hit the update button, it updates all of the software OBDII, Porsche, etc.
  • Eject the USB adapter
  • Put the microsim back into the side of the NT510 Foxwell
  • The Porsche icon is now on the home screen
  • The unit updated

I was able to read the airbag codes and reset the airbag light. Mission accomplished.
This information isn’t anywhere on the box, in the printed manual (that I can find).

How to solve NCS Expert VIN is faulty COAPI-2000

Have spent my entire Saturday on this:

All running on XP and also tried on Win7 x64

INPA is working fine. Battery and ignition both ON
When running NCS Expert, try to read the VIN from ECU i get VIN Faulty

Vin is faulty
COAPI-2000 Error or in ECU description file (SGBD) IFH-0018 CAS
COAPI-2000 Error or in ECU description file (SGBD) FGNR_LESEN
COAPI-2000 Error or in ECU description file (SGBD) FGNR_A_E65CAS

ncs-expert-vin-is-faulty-1
ncs-expert-vin-is-faulty-2

Solution 1:

If you have Standard tools 2.12 you are fine.

Check if you have E89 folder in C:\NCSEXPERT\DATEN\

And make sure that you copied all files from sp-daten\daten\*.* to here C:\NCSEXPERT\DATEN\ and here C:\NCSEXPERT\DATEN\E89

Just recopy this and check if this helps

Solution 2:

You can only run INPA or NCS one at a time, not simultaneously.

Also, sometimes mine gives me that error. It’s usually because I didn’t initialize the USB cable properly. Unplugging it, closing NCS, plugging it back and restarting NCS usually solves my problem.

Hope this helps.

Solution 3:

you are missing some files for E65 at sp-daten. Try to download newer spdaten and copy at least e65 folder or update whole data.

Solution 4:

make sure you update your daten files correctly as well

you can do the following copy-paste procedure: (copy the files and replace )

Target —————————Source .(SP-Daten-Exx directory )

\NCSEXPER\SGDAT\ ——– .ipo files
\NCSEXPER\DATEN\ ——– coding data (daten) for models
\EDIABAS\Ecu\ ————– .prg files……

If not work, please empty your .man file .. delelete everything inside then save.. then try again

ON YOUR NCS EXPERT FOLDER YOU SHOULD SEE A FILE:

FSW_PSW (MAN)
FSW_PSW (TRC)

INSIDE THE (MAN) ONE DELETE ALL THE VALUES INSIDE THEN SAVE AS.MAN SO FSW_PSW.MAN MAKE SURE SAVE AS ALL FILES OTHERWISE IT WOULD SAVE ONLY AS PLAIN TEXT.

After You Do That.. Try To Read The Car Again.. So Ncs Expert,f1,f3 E89,cas, Then Back

NOTE:
All above solutions are shared on BMW forums; never know he/she is the professional or amateur. So, YOU ARE TRYING EACH SOLUTION ON YOUR OWN RISK.

Reference: NCS EXPERT User Guide

Proceed at your own risk, this is just my interpretation for educational/entertainment value only. I am not responsible for you blowing up your car or damaging your modules. Im serious!

DUMMIES GUIDE TO UNDERSTANDING NCS AND CODING

This is roughly how it works… and my dummy interpretation of it. Please read it fully if you want to understand, this isn’t exactly a quick cheat sheet guide.

On Pre ’02 cars the coding is slightly different method than Post ’02 cars. I am only going to elaborate on coding individual parameters, you can go learn how to code entire modules thru the VO later once you learn the basics below.

The first part to understand is what this stuff about ZCS/VO or “vehicle order” is. When BMW makes a car, they create whats called a “vehicle order”, this is basically a bunch of numbers written into the car that tell what modules are installed in the car, regional info etc. This is like your car’s DNA! for example if the car has a sunroof, or a convertible or radio etc etc and that it was meant for US,Canada,France etc. Because each car is different with a different set of options/modules or country that its located, the “vehicle order” aka. “ZCS” or “VO” may be different. Why is it called ZCS you ask? because its abbreviated german, and its confusing as hell.

The VO is written into a couple modules of the car, usually ones that start with an “A”, like AKMB or ALSZ. On some cars its written elsewhere. In my 02 M3, the VO was written in ALSZ and AKMB. On my ’00 328ci it was stored in EWS, KMB. Its nothing more than a string of text/numbers stored in the flash memory of these modules, nothing special. Why is it written into two places? because if one module is failed and has to be replaced, then the other will serve as a backup so you can code the new replacement module to your car. For example ALSZ is the “light switch module” in your car, for some reason it fails. When you buy a new LSZ/LCM, you can retrieve all your settings of VO from AKMB and then code your new LCM to YOUR factory settings. The chances of both modules failing is slim, but if it does… you’ll have to contact BMW so they can give you the VO for your car from their records.

OK the one difference is pre-02 cars don’t have a VO. Those cars have their ZCS (which acts like a VO) stored in the EWS or KMB modules. The stuff below is basically identical however for individual parameter coding.

Now go get into the basics of coding.

1. When you load NCS expert, you need to load a profile. These profiles just change how ncs expert behaves when you read your car. The two profiles i stick to are “expertmode” and “revtor’s expert profile”. if you don’t have it, you can find it on the net easily. In order to code your car the first time, you should pick “revtors“. This has something called “manipulation” enabled… ill elaborate on that later.

2. Once the profile is loaded, you basically need to select Vin/ZCS/FA in order for ncs to download VIN info off your car. Once it does this, it will ask you to select a module. Why? because it needs to know your “vehicle order” information. In most cases it will probably be in an “A” module. if it doesn’t load, or cant be accessed, no harm done, just try a different module. When it is able to read it, you will see a long string next to “FA” starting with your chassis “E46_” followed by numbers and text along with #’s and $’s. This is your VO. Now that NCS Expert knows it, it can code your car properly!

CODING HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE MODULE YOU JUST SELECTED TO READ THE VO FROM! This perplexed me for the longest time, I didn’t understand why i selected two modules each time, or what the difference selecting AKMB or ALSZ or etc the first time was. Well… It has no bearing!! all NCS is doing is reading the text/number string that is your VO off the memory in these modules in this first step. You will actually select the desired module to code in later steps.

** PRE-02 cars, you wont see the long FA “VO” string, instead there will be a few lines FG, GM, VN, SA followed by numbers, its basically the same thing different format. For all intents and purposes this is referred to by me as the vehicle order or ZCS for a pre-02 car.

ON POST-02 cars select any module with “A’ in front of it, on PRE-02 the “A” modules wont work, you will need to use EWS or KMB for this step… It doesn’t matter which. 

Now this guide will touch on the basics to code INDIVIDUAL items on your car. The steps to add items to your VO and code your modules is different and i wont comment on that here, because it will confuse the amateur. Just understand the basics of individual coding first, then coding from your VO will all make sense later.

3. The next part is to download your factory settings in your car to your PC. Once you get the VO loaded, you hit the BACK button. The default job in NCS is to write SO BE VERY CAREFUL here. You will see all your modules listed, for example “EWS,ABG,ASC,KMB,APL,…..etc” and underneath “SG_CODIEREN”

NCS at this point is set to SG_CODIEREN, which means to WRITE to ALL modules listed. You don’t want to do that.

4. So now select “Process ECU”, and select the INDIVIDUAL MODULE you want to code. For example LSZ (light switch module). Once you do this, it will say only LSZ (and not all the modules in your car).

5. Now you want to change the job from WRITE to READ. Select “CHANGE JOB”, then select “CODIERDATEN_LESEN”. This is to READ DATA.

6. Once selected it will confirm this by indicating the module and job type on the screen. Now you are ready. Hit “EXECUTE JOB”.

It will say Coding Activ, then Coding Ended.

7. At this point, in your NCSexpert/WORK/ folder there will be a file called “FSW_PSW.TRC”

This is what we want, the coding of your LSZ module that we read earlier. IMMEDIATELY save a backup of this file, rename it to FSW_PSW_LSZ_ORIGINAL.TRC and save it somewhere in case you decide you want to revert to the original copy. Now I want you to resave another copy of this FSW_PSW.TRC file as FSW_PSW.MAN (manipulation…hint hint). Make sure it doesn’t save as FSW_PSW.MAN.TXT or some crap like that, it wont work properly.

OK why all this juggling?? because NCS expert only reads modules and saves EVERYTHING as a FSW_PSW.TRC file. Regardless of what module you read in your car, this is what the filename will be. And everytime you load NCS expert, this file is constantly erased, written and re-written. So thats why we are saving it as FSW_PSW.MAN so we can alter it safely without our copy being overwritten.

8. Now open up FSW_PSW.MAN with a text editor.

You will see a long list of stuff like this..

LEUCHTWEITENREG_AUTOM
aktiv
FEHLER_BREMSLICHT
nicht_melden
TAGFAHRLICHT
aktiv

This is where you can code. now its all in german, so you will need to run these words in a translator (google) to understand it, OR you can use NCS Dummy that translates this stuff for you and gives you all available parameters, but thats a whole different program and you ought to learn how to use it.

This is what the above looks like if translated. Now you can see how we can deactivate/activate certain things. I’m going to deactivate DRLs here.
Translated…

AUTOMATIC HEADLIGHT CONTROL
active
BRAKE LIGHT ERROR REPORTING
don’t report
DAYTIME RUNNING LIGHTS
active 

edited…

LEUCHTWEITENREG_AUTOM
aktiv
FEHLER_BREMSLICHT
nicht_melden
TAGFAHRLICHT
nicht_aktiv

By changing to nicht_activ, it deactivates this setting. Now don’t go crazy, some codes are redundant so changing just one thing wont do the trick. This takes some time and effort to find the right code/codes to work with.

9. Once you are happy, SAVE your FSW_PSW.MAN file.

10. Open up NCS expert, load up “revtors” profile (with manipulation enabled), and reload it to the part where the VO is loaded and its asking you to process ecu (Basically steps 1-3) Look above how to do this. Once you’re there, select “PROCESS ECU”, select the correct module you are coding, in this case “LSZ”. Then select “CHANGE JOB” and make sure you pick “SG_CODIEREN”. Once this is done, you are ready to code the car.

NCS will basically now take the FSW_PSW.MAN file, and overwrite the codes in your car’s LSZ module with your new settings. It only uses the MAN file because you are using a profile with “manipulation” enabled. The other mode “expertmode” does not have manipulation, and you cannot code individual stuff like this using that profile.

11. Hit “EXECUTE JOB”. Wait till it says “Coding ended”. Now your new LSZ is coded. Turn off the car, and restart, and check to see if your results are as expected!

12. Open up the /WORK/ folder, open the FSW_PSW.MAN file, select all, delete, save and exit.

Viola! Thats it. You are now an expert on coding individual features!

Now what do you do if you screwed it up or something is behaving funny and you want to go back to original settings. Or you cant remember all the stuff you changed, or don’t like the results.

To load up the ORIGINAL factory defaults if you mess up.

Go to your /WORK/ folder. Open FSW_PSW.MAN, select all, delete, save & exit.

Load NCS Expert

Select “Expertmode” profile

Hit “VIN/ZCS/FA” to load your Chassis and Vehicle order info

Hit BACK

Hit PROCESS ECU

Select the chassis, then module you F’d up on. For example “LSZ”

On Pre-02 cars It will say “LSZ” and underneath “SG_Codieren” along with some files LSZ.Cxx, LSZ.PRG, etc etc. SG_CODIEREN is the correct job you want.

On Post-02 cars It will say “LSZ” and underneath “SG_Codieren” along with some files LSZ.Cxx, LSZ.PRG, etc etc. Hit CHANGE JOB, Select “FA_WRITE” Job.

“xx” is usually the specific Coding index used in your default module, its a number. think of this like “firmware version”.

These files are basically from your /DATEN/ folder and contain the proper coding information specific to your car. How does NCS know which files to use? Because it knows by looking at your VIN and VO, then selects the correct files. NCS will then basically read these files, then read your VO and re-write the proper codes, features, activate, deactivate everything to your factory settings.

The job is SG_Codieren or FA_Write because you will WRITE your original settings back in.

Hit EXECUTE JOB.

Viola, your original data is re-written and your car will work again. Hopefully.
