VXDIAG NANO Ford Mazda review : diagnosis+ programming +add key

Played VCX nano for Ford & Mazda tool USB version for more than 1 month, I verified it can diagnose Ford Mazda greatly, also can programming with the “extendprograming.exe” and add new keys.

Diagnose Ford Mazda:

Connect to a 2005 Ford Five Hundred, recognized (Good)



A required file “Extendprogramming.exe”, download on mega:


Decompressed -> select the car brand you want.


Add new keys:

I want to program a key to the vehicle PATS system as I only had one key when I brought the car and really wanted a spare in case of loss or damage

This VCX nano for Ford & Mazda device was able to delete all old keys from the system then and add 2 new keys, whilst I was there I did some software updates on the PCM.


VCX nano for Ford & Mazda device fail on:

Right after the 10sec crank screen appear it fails right away saying something about the key was turned off. So did the power balance test.



Decent VXDIAG Nano Ford Mazda source:

I am very happy with the good quality of the package: great quality box, long USB cable. All looked very professional.

Packed with CDs incl. Mazda IDS and Ford IDS. I was very pleased with them, they all installed flawlessly.

I’d like to share a quick guide for my success:

Use Virtual machine installer found on CD V100, install VM then create a VM

Then on the virtual machine

Install calibration from V81 CD

Install V91 from V100 CD and reboot without opening software

Once rebooted open software and agree to 3 day licence, enter any details

Close software and Install V96 and reboot without opening

Once rebooted you can open software

Install software on CD V100 for the VX device

At this point I just installed deep freeze found on cd V100


A bit of advice with the software is use virtual machine (it’s easier to delete and start again), and follow video guides uobdii.com upload on youtube.

Note: they have only the older version install video, but it’s no problem to refer, or refer to official site http://www.vxdiag.net/ 

Works on WIN7/WIN8/Win10

To sum up:

Honestly it can work for what I paid as long as you could follow my success for software installation.
