VIDA DICE wanted

Brian Owner/Technician Detroit Lakes, Minnesota Posted   Latest  

So I’ve been working on this for a long time now. I’m working with a tech at Xemodex. He said if I can get my hands on this DICE/VIDA he can walk me thru the updates necessary to get rid of this code. Anyone care to lend me one to use. Or should I just buy one of the cheap ones on eBay? I’m determined to get to the bottom of this problem. Funny, the car starts and drives fine. Just no CC. and the idle is a touch high. But no CEL. I think I mainly want to do this so I can learn more about pass thru updates and their value. I own an Autel maxis elite. But that j2534 won’t work on this car. Share your comments. Thanks

Crankcase pressure? Is this something I’m missing? What would that have to do with code p1025?

Now that we know what we are working on it seems that your code translates to and ECM 913F which is for a throttle position sensor. There was an extended campaign to replace the throttle body but it is over at this point. You can identify the throttle body to see if it has been replaced under warranty by looking at the forward face of it and seeing if there is a yellow or white sticker on it…

Is this your personal vehicle? Is that why youre so vested in it? A '99 Volvo isn't the vehicle to learn about pass thru updates and their value. Volvos of that era had pretty crappy/quirky electronics. Does Xemodex tech(love their service BTW) have a doc or TSB # for an update? I could not find anything regarding that code. According to the Drewtech website, a passthru is a feasible tool…

Xemodex has rebuilt the throttle body some time ago. Before I came into the picture. And then I sent them the throttle body and the ECM. they said there was no problem found. Now they are suggesting that I get the DICE and they will send me everything via the net to do the programming. and yes. This is my vehicle. If it wasn’t I’d probably have sent it away a long time ago. But hey, I want to…

Volvo says that j2534 won't work on pre 04 cars but i have in the past. There is just all the setup that is so frustrating with VIDA. I won't recommend using the autel jbox. I would use a drew tech product.

I have used my j2534 device for years with Volvo diagnostics and programming before I bought a dice​.​It should work with that car.I used an aetools easy flasher.
