VXdiag, What works and what's not working.. a short list.

Hello guys,

Some of you may have read my thread where I do a review on these VXdiag (Ford/Mazda/Honda/JLR/Toyota/Subaru) devices.

I own one of them with licence for Ford/Mazda/Honda/JLR.

I've been having problems using it with Ford/Mazda IDS at first but now I've come to a point where I succeed using it for programming Ford/Mazda cars.

To be honest... that's the only function I was looking for.... Programming or reprogramming Ford/Mazda modules but I had honda & JLR licence for 10$ extra so I went for it, but Honda HDS software that works with it is very old... (3.014...useless) and I feel safer to run JLR with my cardaq+

I think that's the main reason I wasn't able to program module with it... now that I only use VCM2 driver, it's working.

So for those who have interest in this device.. or already owns the device, I'm making a list of the functions I tried and the result of these tests.

Feel free to contribute. Post:
- Car info
- IDS version #
- Function used and results.
