IDS VCM 2 with Mark DeKoster


Everything you need to know about IDS, VCM and VCM II is covered by ASE instructor Mark DeKoster in this 120-minute video. Featuring step-by-step instruction and hands-on demonstrations, DeKoster discusses the VCM II subscription process, setting up your VCM II on a PC, and moving the VCM II from PC to PC. The subscription process is of particular importance because it is mandatory for VCM II modules and is required to fix 2013 vehicles and newer. 

Three key case studies — vehicle misfire, Lincoln Town car  and Grand Marquis — are covered, as well as other practical topics to deal with IDS and VCM. Among the latter are installing IDS on a PC and on the VCM; updating IDS installing methods; uploading VCM data to a PC; troubleshooting IDS updates; checking for trouble codes, customizing PID view; testing the powertrain and Mode 6 with the IDS; and connecting to the PTS website.

A manual is include as well as unlimited course access.
