I'm confused with this one. How do you VO Code each ECU? Do you click on Code Default Values under Esys/Coding while certain SVT is highlighted?

NO! Don't ever hit Code Default Values, or you will likely be watching your car flatbeded to the dealer.

VO Code:

Connect => Read FA => Activate FA => Read VCM => Right-Click on ECU XYZ (the ECU itself not the underlying CAFD) => Select CODE.

Whew!!!... good thing I didn't try that. If I accidentally press that button, would Esys ask me for a confirmation if I really want to do it? (more like a second line of defense).. or would it just start bricking my car? Do I need to have the original ncd files inside the CAF folder to VO code?
Thanks...

I don't recall if it pops up a warning or not, but stay away from it as it will set your ECU(s) to a factory condition that has nothing to do with your actual car's configuration.

No, you don't need .NCD files to VO Code. An .NCD files is the as coded (read) state of the ECU. When you CO Code, it will use just the CAFD and the VO and write to the ECU.
