The VCM II is the brand new diagnostics interface from Ford ® for use with the Integrated Diagnostics Software (IDS). The VCM II and IDS, along with a dedicated laptop, provide full dealer diagnostic capabilities for most 16 pin Fords ®. A fantastic new function of the VCM 2 is its ability to communicate wirelessly with your laptop or computer without any hardware or software upgrades. This allows technicians to work on vehicles remotely while the VCM II is connected directly to the vehicle.
The VCM II is recommended for new Ford ® , Lincoln ® , and Mercury ® vehicles. It is also backwards compatible with all 16 pin Ford ® , Lincoln ® , and Mercury ® vehicles. In addition, the VCM II is designed to be compatible with future communication protocols. It supports the Vehicle Measurement Module (VMM) and new Customer Flight Recorder (CFR). The VCM II has shock resistant rubber ends, making it suitable for garage and workshop environments.
The CFR replaces the Vehicle Data Recorder (VDR). The CFR is an optional cable that allows the VCM II to monitor and record live data streams. This provides an advantage for technicians when diagnosing intermittent problems.
