Ford Focus 2008 PCM Programming by VCM2 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.
