He is an absolute credit to the Volvo community and is a genuinely kind soul.

I was in a pinch after doing something rather stupid with my car. I needed to get on top of it quickly and was quite worried. Simon was awesome throughout and patiently offered support during the install and set up right through to getting a good connection to the car.

I personally can't thank him enough. I highly recommend speaking to Simon (Cherished5) if you want to get yourself vida.

👍
Opps I auto corrected Cheshired5 user name 🤣 sorry..

Hi Simon.

I am posting on here as I cant send PM's at present.

I am looking for a "turn key" vida dice setup please. Do you have any complete units available? Something that I can simply turn on, plug what needs to be plugged in and away we go.

I use Mac stuff but am not interested in setting up any sort of virtual machine on it. The vida/dice will be used solely for my Volvo diagnostics at home.

Thank you.

Hello cheshire

I recently bought icarsoft OBD-II reader, specifically engineered just and only for Volvos and Saabs.

It reads all other modules just fine, but cannot access the engine module.

I contacted the guy who chipped my car, to ask his opinion, are the ecus so different on CNG gas (Bi-Fuel) Volvos that even brand specific code readers are lost.
His feels this indeed is the case.

My wife’s son has a 2015 V60 Bi-Fuel. He has had engine trouble. He needed to have codes checked. Local Volvo dealerships tell him to take his Volvo some place else because it is the dreaded Bi-Fuel model. (The car is a non dealership import from Sweden.) I am guessing they have trouble accessing the gas side of the engine module.

My question is, does your version of OBD-II wizardy read the CNG side of the engine module?

For anyone else with factory Bi-Fuel models within the usual 1999-2015 model years, Vida reads the car fine and provides additional Bi-Fuel data, parts and repair procedures.
