2002 Volvo S60 2.4L (B5244S) 5-spd (AW55-50SN)
Replaced Driver Door Master Window Switch

This is one of our employee's cars (freebie). The driver door module (switch Assembly) was making a clicking noise when the ambient temp drops. Diagnosed as faulty power window control (common problem). Installed new EO switch attempted to program new switch with VIDA and Autel J2534. Will only read VIN won't scan any module, can't program. I believe because of the age of the car I need a DICE? Can someone confirm this? Is there another passthru that will work with car? I'm going to borrow a Drew tech next week…any guidance would be appreciated. FYI my Autel VCMI has worked with newer Volvo cars.

I'm not sure why you don't have comm. with other modules, but I think the DDM is plug and play. I used the Drew Tech with VIDA.

I can communicate with all modules with Autel Ultra but not with VIDA and Autel J box. DDM not plug and play unfortunately…I will try Drew Tech next week thanks for the reply.

Keep in mind that there are 3 or 4 different models of the autel J2534. They each have different drivers. I can tell you from experience, if you have the wrong one selected it won't communicate. I proved this with SPS2, where you select your vcmi. You have to open the window a little to see the end of the autel descriptions, There will be a plain one, a pro, an elite, and ultra. (That's from…

Thanks Mike, It's happened to me in SPS also…I tried all Autel j2534 on the list in VIDA. Drivers just installed on new laptop for this one. I think I'm on solid ground with that.

Mak sure your Autel works with J2534-2 . I’m not sure but I think older Autel VCIs didn’t support J2534-2. Also if you are replacing DDM with used one you don’t really need to program it

New OE DDM for Volvo dealer, J box is VCMI (comes with Ultra) also tried J box that I use with my IM 608 both less then a year old and software is up to date. My suspicion is the car is too old and needs DICE which doesn't play nice with windows 10.

Drewtech works perfect on those cars. But it reads VIN so it is communicating with vehicle. What error did you get? Did you set an area and other options correct in vida ?

Agree with Robert, if you got compatible part number then should work without issue. could probably give you fault for mismatch but that’s about it. your issue might be somewhere else.

When I tried to scan for DTCs it looked like it was working but eventually timed out and it said there was no connection. I tried 3 times with each J2534 I had on hand. I will try with Drew Tech, once I get completed I will try with autel J2534 just to satisfy my curiosity. I will update when done.

I use a factory interface for Volvo programming so I don't have experience with what you are trying to do. The way I read the link is J2534 is for 2004 and newer. I don't think using another J-tool is going to help.
