    Default VIDA-DICE help

    OK. I have VIDA installed and it is communicating with my car. The problem I have is that I cannot select a CRC to clear. The tab under unselected show them, the first tab show them and I cannot select one to clear. I can go to deliver and reset everything but it does not reset service or SRS.

    When I go to the tab to select the DIM and reset the service light it appears to be in an endless loop.

    If I do the information tab it also goes in an endless loop.

    Ideas?

    If you are truly seeing the app run in a loop then you have a bad install. How about giving us the details of your hardware and what version of VIDA you are running. That will be a reasonable place to start.

    The version is 2014D, running on Windows 7 Pro, 4 gb. The laptop was purchased just to run VIDA-DICE and has nothing else on it

    As far as i know you can't clear individual codes, you clear them all under deliver.

    Clear all does not reset the service light, just use the trip button, it's easy on a 2003.

    But if a SRS code comes right back, you have an SRS problem - what's the recurring code?

    Or sometimes when a DIM goes bad the SRS light stays lit.

    I will go play with it but I just got a new DIM. I thought the Vida was supposed to clear individual codes

    I have been using Vadis with a vct2000 /then vida with a dice unit since 2000 - and have never seen the option to clear individual codes. The snap on scan tool I have that reads most Volvo codes can erase individual control units, (unlike vida) but it can't do individual codes either.

    OK.I can deal with that but it is a surprise. I thought VIDA was fully functional. Is there a secret on clearing the SRS light?

    Nope. Just clear them all and then re-scan. Obviously any outstanding issues will re-appear. Not much different than clearing just one if you think about it.

    I always do the following for every Volvo I hook up the VIDA on

    - Pull all codes and print out the full report for record
    - Clear all codes and see what comes back

    Just about all the higher mileage Volvos come with some stored electrical faults are no longer present (power windows, locks, mirrors faults are common). So clear all and see what returns is just about the only way to focus on real problems.
    Past Volvos : 01 V70 T5, 01/02 V70XC, 02 V70 NA, 00 V70XC
    Current EV/Hybrid : 13 Tesla S85, 11 Gen3 Prius
    Friends cars under my care 17 Audi A4 Quattro DSG (B9) 05 Audi A4 Manual 6sp Quattro (B7) 04 e320 V6 Auto, 05 Accord 2.4, 08 Element 2.4, 08 Camry Hybrid
    Past Others : 01/03 VW MK4 Turbo/NA/01M. Gen1 Prius, Gen1 CRV, Gen2 Rav4, 02 Town&Country, 06 Corolla, 12 Audi A4 Quattro (B8), 07 Civic 1.6
