My vxdiag vcx nano Ford IDS V124 failed to communicate with a 2020 Ford Explorer. It says ‘use only Ford Diagnosis and Repair System (FDRS) for this vehicle.’ Any idea how to make it work?
As the IDS says, you have to use FDRS on this vehicle.
Ford Diagnostic & Repair System (FDRS) – The next generation factory Ford Motor Company vehicle diagnostic Software designed for use with VCM II, VCMM and J2534 compatible Vehicle Communications Interfaces (VCI). FDRS provides complete dealership level vehicle diagnostic coverage for some 2018 and forward vehicles. FDRS provides superior capabilities, is more user-friendly and provides more diagnostic tools than IDS. The cloud-based system ensures the technician is provided the latest software every time FDRS logs into the Ford network.
