VXDIAG VCX SE Failed to Program Nissan Module Solution

VXDIAG VCX SE and VNCI RNM which is a better Nissan diagnostic scanner for module programming?



  1. VXDIAG VCX SE for Nissan

The device does support online programming with software subscription.

NOTE: It does not support programming on Nissan pre-2010. Only part of 2010-2013 models and fully support 2013- models.


If VXDIAG fails to program modules online. Driver might be the problem.

Obdii365.com here shares a case study of one of our customers.


He bought a VXDIAG VCX SE device with Nissan license activated.

Tested it on a Qashqai J11 MY2013- diagnosis everything works fine.

He registered with the MERS.  Then started the procedure of module reprogramming the VCX SE head in Consult III Plus 226.50:

Go to Programming and Configuration – Engine – Programming and initialize internal combustion engine

Consult3+ finds 2 firmware updates for the engine

The consult3 plus makes sure that everything is normal and you can proceed.

Then, after launching the firmware, the fan on the radiator started and remove the chip from it so as not to drain the battery.

This is where everything froze, waited for the promised 15 minutes for about an hour or a little more. No luck.

Without waiting for the end of the process, he quit and the Consult3 plus software threw out an error (“Reprogramming SCF Error”).

He repeated it again, waited for about 2 hours – it was stuck in exactly the same place.


VXDIAG released a new Nissan RNM VCI driver for reprogramming on June 25th, 2024.

The new version driver fixed reprogramming bugs.

VXDIAG Nissan Driver Update

Update driver and you can reprogram modules without problem.

Tested working with Consult3 plus V235 and Consult3 plus V226.




2. VNCI RNM device

VNCI RNM currently is compatible with Nissan Consult 3 Plus V231 software. V235 coming soon. Since the device is compatible with original Nissan VCI driver, it is play and play.

It has no problem working with Nissan subscription for online programming. We haven’t got any negative feedback yet.

VNCI Nissan programming example

VNCI RNM is also compatible with Renault and Mitsubishi software.



Both devices supports Nissan online programming with subscription. VXDIAG uses its own driver but allows to add more car brand license.

VNCI uses original driver but it is not able to add more license. All depends on your need.
