How to use Ford VCM 2 unit with Mazda IDS software


Vcm2 model:SP177-C1


Mazda IDS installation: Success


Issues: Mazda ids can see the vcm but it won’t connect to the car.


What tried:

I tried the old trick which involves copying ford’s vcm manger files to the Mazda folder.
Mazda ids can see the vcm but it won’t connect to the car.

I tried it with latest Bosch vcm manager and ford ids 104.1 and Mazda ids 103.5

My ford and Mazda ids are not on the same partition so I simply copied the file from a partition to the other one, taking care to rename the folder to Mazda-vcm…..




All I did was install Ford software and uninstalled Mazda vcm 2 software then reboot and it’s working
