Description of Repair unable to perform
I have a vcm2 and the Mazda software does not seem to work with the vcm 2. I have verified that it is not a hardware issue as it works fine with ford software. I also have a vcm 1 and my Mazda subscription works fine with that. The problem is there is no information available as to why this is. Do I need to buy another vcm 1 from Mazda ? If so where can I get one? I have sent in an email to them over a week ago and have not received a response. At this point they are failing to provide OEM tool that works to the aftermarket. Please help. I need to get my other tool working.
