Enter the code 60274
It changes the ccc option in module programming to a different list with more options and also appeared to give me icons to read and write dumps,
But I ran out of time to play more and see what options did, I did try to disable my seat belt off warning buzzer but it failed to work, Other peoples input would be nice once you test it…
See my photos, get the first page up as shown then click update/ special functions on your right hand side
As for getting nothing to appear in special function through VCM2 IDS, i had two option in there, read config file and modify, Also for me the tool box module programming, 3rd option down had changed to allow what i would normally alter within ccc as well as a as built option which i do not normally see on this year of car, It had speed items for one listed, were as this is found on later fords than mine in the pcm on first page.

Authentic Ford OEM diagnostics scan tool that works with the Ford IDS diagnostics application running on a PC to diagnose Ford, Lincoln, and Mercury vehicles.  VCM 2 are used under license from Ford Motor Company

Drug iatrogeny is important but could be decreased if contraindications, cautions for use, drug interactions and adverse effects of drugs described in drug monographs were taken into account. However, the physician’s time is limited during consultations, and this information is often not consulted. We describe here the design of “Mister VCM”, a graphical interface based on the VCM graphical language, facilitating access to drug monographs. We also provide an assessment of the usability of this interface.

So you want to buy a scan tool or diagnostic device or programer to work on your car, or other peoples cars.  You begin to look at the cost of buying a tool from a reliable and reputable vendor and find out, WOW!  These things are expensive!  So you end up here, on Ebay to look for an used unit and you find that people from all over the world are selling these things for WAY LESS MONEY than the OEM manufacturer.  There is a reason for that.  This is why we are here today to teach you what the differences are and how to spot fake devices.  We will also discuss WHY you should NEVER buy one of these cheap China clones, even if you only plan to use it once and a while.

Notice for ford vcm ii diagnostic tool:
1. This VCM II only support Mazda, for other car models, please check other VCM II.
