How to program PCM with As-Built data with Ford IDS software

To program the PCM with As-built information via Ford IDS diagnostic software:

 

Enter the Module Programming menu in the IDS

Select As-built and then the PCM

If the PCM is not listed in the As-built tab, use the following process to manually enter the information.

Select the IDS logo in the upper left corner of the screen.

Select the Pocket knife in the lower left corner of the screen.

Select “Update/Special Functions” from the Miscellaneous menu.

ford-ids-Special-Function

Enter 53061 into the blue box and click the tick.

Return to the Module Programming menu and select PMI then the PCM.

Follow the on-screen prompts and enter the As-built data when the IDS prompts for it. This data is available from the OASIS report for this VIN under the As-built tab. It has also been provided below for your convenience.

Complete the PMI process by continuing with the on-screen directions.

Complete the PMI process by continuing with the on-screen directions.

To get As Built Data, go to Motorcraftservice.com

Under Non-Subscription Resources, click on Quick Guides.

13 dot points down you will fine, “Module Build Data (As-Built)”

Enter “Module Build Data”

Enter the VIN# then submit. As Built Data will then be displayed in Ford VCM2 IDS interface.

Ford Focus 2008 PCM Reprogramming via Ford IDS

This how-to guide is aimed to help Ford PCM power-train control module programming with a VXDIAG VCX NANO for Ford– a redesign of the Ford VCM2 unit.
If you change the new original ECU, then can directly to program. If you want to use used ECU to change the broken ECU, first use this software to work on the car with broken ECU, then choose the option, see the prompt then change the used ECU for programming.
Need 14v when you do programming!!
Put battery charger on battery and retry.
This is a new Focus PCM to be programmed by Ford IDS.

Module programming notice:
You are about to program a procedure using the module programming application you purchased. The reason for this module programming may pertain to a Field Service Action that has been recommended by the manufacturer for the customer’s vehicle. In many instances, such services are provided free of charge to the customer when that service is provided by the manufacturer’s dealer. As part of the terms and conditions of your use of this application, you are obligated to inform the customer of this fact. Prior to performing any service on their vehicle, you must allow them the opportunity ti check with their local dealer to determine if their vehicle is in fact eligible for the repair free of charge. The manufacturer will not reimburse a customer for such services if not performed by a dealer

How to add Cruise Control to Ford F150 with IDS

I have a 2016 F150 502a, that I have added the adaptive Cruise Control components to yesterday. I’ve got Ford VCM2 IDS diagnostic scanner. Here are some clues to follow:

Before..

ford-f150-cruise-control-2

ford-f150-cruise-control-3

ford-f150-cruise-control-4

ford-f150-cruise-control-5ford-f150-cruise-control-5

ford-f150-cruise-control-6

ford-f150-cruise-control-7

ford-f150-cruise-control-8

ford-f150-cruise-control-9
To summarize progress thus far:

1. I’ve programmed from an AB and calibrated the CCM
2. Enabled ACC in the BCM
3. Enabled collision warning and HUD in the IPC.

You need IDS and the Ford VCMII in order to initiate the calibration of the CCM.
The ACC system is still not active yet because of (2) modules:

1. The steering controls control module (SCCM) recognizes the new switch on the wheel and has thrown a communication fault. Pressing the on/off button does not produce a response on the IPC yet.

2. The ABS module appears to need a change in the instructions to enable the automatic braking function. The pigtail leading into the module has the HS CAN II wires ran, as well as a fuse in place for the automatic braking which I why I am confident the fix is in the programming.

The modules that I am certain are involved with ACC are the following:

CCM, ABS, SCCM, IPC, BCM and PCM.
