The Vehicle Communication Module 3 (VCM3) is Ford's new Communication Module and is required for use of IDS, and is the recommended interface for use with both FDRS and FJDS.

The VCM3 is also capable of performing module reprogramming at increased speeds on vehicles that are soon to be released and are equipped with the new CAN-FD network.

Unlike the VCMII and VCMM, the VCM3 is capable of communicating on both the J1708 and J1939 networks. This allows for a higher level of diagnostics on Medium Duty Trucks when paired with the Rotunda Medium Duty Truck DLC adapter and manufacturer specific software.
