The WDS is getting harder to find. Many were up for sale a dozen tears ago when the Ford dealers abandoned them for the IDS setup. WDS software support ended in 2006 as the IDS was taking off.
I bought a few WDS for about $400 but they are rare to find on eBay anymore. I have 3 PTUs but only one ‘docking-station’.
The IDS version needs a Rotunda VCM and 2 cables. One cable from the USB port on a laptop to the VCM and one cable from the VCM to the OBDII port on the car.
The Rotunda VCM was about $2300.00 new in the mid to late 2000s.
I have seen used ones for about $600 on up.
Land Rover used the VCM and the Jaguar shop borrowed it from Rover when ours broke.
I used to tell the Jaguar sales guys to get the customer to the Jag shop so I could select the configuration options that the customer wanted at PDI (Pre-Delivery Inspection).
Not all options on the list I provided will work. We do NOT have things like DEAD LOCKING or SCANNING INTERIOR ALARM in the US.
Drive-away locking IS something that the US market has and can be disabled.
PDU is REALLY hard to find!!! The Jaguar dealer I worked at SCRAPPED it and would not allow anyone to buy it. (what a shame)
I have WDS and IDS software if you ever get a working one of either.
