Hi,

Sorry, I do not know what Vcats is. If you speak of OBDII, the
female connector is just next to the boot opening lever, and you’ll
need a male connector and a computer with the adequate software.
These do not allow to program the ECM, though: for this you need a
Jaguar proprietary tool which is not sold to externals…

Normally the ECM you buy from Jaguar is delivered programmed for
your vehicule, according to the VIN you gave when ordering the ECM
(they are programemd in the factory in the UK and then shipped). If
you bought a ‘‘enhanced’’ ecm from a third party they should deliver
it programmed…

Brgds,

I believe on pre '99My the Vcats info can be found on a sticky
white label in the spare wheel well. On 2000+ MY it can be found on
the left hand chassis leg.
Hope this is of some use.–

Hi, the vcats label is in the spare wheel well area. if it
is missing you can order a new one through your dealer, part
number jjm998499/20 you will need proof of ownership. Hope
this helps.–
