Lightbulb Volvo Scanner

good day all,
I did buy recently a PPC£ diagnostic system connected direct to Sweden by software installed in my laptop.
It shows all problems having with my Volvo V70 T5 but in general it can be for any other car also.
Only with Volvo I do have the possibility to check on line and the codes gives enough info to solve the problem and exactly tells me what is wrong.
The purchase price of £330 is not wasted knowing the price of a read out you pay in a Volvo workshop.
So if anybody has a problem with his Volvo and wants to know what it is as long I'm here in the UK you welcome to contact me and pass by to have it done.
Have to say that normally I'm working abroad for a period of time but presently home waiting for my next call to Hamburg.
Send me a line if in need of this equipment.
Have a nice day all.

My iCarsoft i806 scanner arrived today, and cleared the annoying SRS light after I fixed my seat cable.

If anyone needs any codes read or cleared for Free, I'm in Aldershot, Hampshire

It might be worth changing the bulb , you might have an unused warning light there you could swap bulb holders over .

Has anyone tried or own a 2014D Super Volvo Dice Pro+ Diagnostic Scan Tool VIDA Version OBD2. There seems to be two versions on offer on ebay.com.

Like this one
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/3019432453...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

and this one
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Super-Volv...AAAOSwyjBW65NZ

If so, will these provide coders and function controls for the C70 Mk1 cabrio roof?

Hello Peter,
I have a 2001 C70 cabrio Mk1 it has developed a roof problem, will the PPC3 provide read-outs for vehicle of this vintage and problem. also can you operated things via the computer link, suchas door-locks, windows, boot-lid, and in my case the roof which I'll need to do for re-calibration.

So besides the cost of the equipment are there any other costs involve to use the software and or internet links to Volvo data base?

I've looked at the VIDA DICE kit offered on ebay but they don't provide details of which models are covered.

I'm a newish member so cannot send PMs I'm in North Wales so too far to call by yours.

So if anyone that is in my area, (Bangor, Co Down N.I.) want, needs their codes read then pm me, (a pint or two will cover it)

cheers all
joe.
Hi I have a 1999 V70 vol fcr is too old but tried Icarsoft and they said its only sure to work on 2001 cars which leaves me in limbo unless i get an alternative "dice"? Did you use the 906 on the 99 volvo?

If you only require the basic codes read, then any of the OBD2 ELM bluetooth Dongles will work with the Torque App on Android fones.
I first read my 99 S80 codes on a cheep ELM cable and the free software that came with it.
Ok it would only do the Engine and tell me that the Gearbox and brakes had codes stored, without telling me what codes.
But personally, I think that the Carsoft I906 "SHOULD" read yours ok, BUT plz don't quote me on that.
Good luck.
Joe.
