    Thumbs up VCM Suite 3.2 - New Dodge Vehicle Controls & Special Functions

    VCM Suite 3.2 brings all new special functions to Chrysler support. Located within "Controls and Special Functions" in VCM Scanner 3.2, you will notice even more controls & special functions than before



    New functions include1:

    • Throttle Relearn: Will perform a throttle relearn for vehicles equipped with ETC.
    • Reset All Adaptives:Resets all adaptives (fuel trims, etc.)
    • Clear DTC: Chrysler Specific DTC Clear. Recommended to use along with the standard "Clear DTC" in "Diagnostics and Info"
    • Gear/Tire Adjustment: Was in 3.0 as well. Change your tire size and/or adjust gear ratios using this special function.
    • Traction Control Disable: Will disable Traction Control. Depending on the vehicle, you may need to do this after every key cycle. (Off-road use only)
    • Traction Control Enable: Re-enables traction control after you have disabled it, if it doesn't re-enable on it's own.


    1(Available functions may vary depending on what your vehicle supports)(Currently only for 2007+)

    Connect the vehicle to VCM Scanner and press the button for Vehicle Controls & Special Functions. (it looks like a green power button on the toolbar)

    If the Charger is equipped with a NGC3_CAN PCM, then not yet but we will look into it shortly.

    If the Charger is not equipped with a NGC3_CAN PCM, then these will not be available.

    Aware of the ticket. We are working on it but have no ETA for the solution on that.

    I just tried as instructed and I did not find the new functions. I have a 2010 Jeep SRT, if that makes a difference.

    If you connect to VCM Scanner and click on the green power button, a window should pop up, even if it's blank. Email support with a VCM Suite Infolog and a screenshot of the screen that pops up.

    Just a quick update on these features for CAN Based NGC3 PCMs....

    1. Reset All Adaptives is Now Available
    2. Clear DTC is Now Available
    3. Traction Control Enable/Disable needs to be tested by a user***
    4. Still looking into Gear/Tire Adjustment solution.


    ***If anyone would like to test "Traction Control Enable/Disable", please email support. Make sure to inform support that you would like to test Traction Control Enable/Disable for Dodge NGC3_CAN equipped vehicles. Make sure to include a VCM Suite Infolog and your .HPT file in the email.

    Thank you very much. This made disabling traction control very easy for a dyno operator not familiar with the modern hemi.

    It's useful when working on your VE table since the fuel trims don't reset after a flash. Resetting the fuel adaptives lets you start from "zero" for each tuning iteration.
