How to solve Volvo VIDA2014D DICE login issues 2019

I just bought a Volvo VIDA Dice unit to read/check/solve issues on my 2002 Volvo S80 2.4T. I was able to source the software in a full All-In-One solution (OVA file), but login issues kept me from working on my car.

Symptoms: the login screen keeps refreshing when trying to login using your credentials.

I tried several things (like putting the machine date in the past), but none worked.

Solution: Patch the software with the latest patch, which should work until the year 2050.

How to solve the VIDA login issues

Step 1) Download the 2050 fix here: https://mega.nz/#!xpdF0K7D!ox5Td5sQdhwBSr2jF3C6syPeW77ETyT-t3zbUM_5ofM

Step 2) Extract and copy/move the contents of the patch in the VIDA main folder (if you are using the AIO solution, then it’s C:\VIDA\ )

Step 3) Run the executable “Patch” as an administrator. You will see a command prompt killing some tasks (this is necessary) and the patch will complete

ad Step 3) Run as administrator

Step 4) Wait a small amount of time (depends on the speed of your computer as the SQL Server is restarted). Shouldn’t take over a minute or so.

Step 5) Startup “Vida All-In-One” and login using either “1” or “ADMIN” (without the quotes!)

Step 6) Profit!

Please note: I do not own these files, neither do I host them!




Volvo S80 2.4T Denso Injector Service

Decided to clean and service the stock Denso injectors. Rubber rings get hard and brittle over time and tend to leak. Also the filter baskets might be contaminated over time, especially if the fuel filter is not part of your regular service intervals (which mine S80 lacked…).

I bought this kit of Aliexpress and the quality looks very nice. It contains all the items needed, including a special tool for removing/mounting the filter baskets.

The pictures will speak for themselves (it was needed!).

Volvo S80 2.4T Modified Center Silencer

When I had the OEM exhaust, I wanted to have the center silencer removed, as the OEM exhaust is very good in keeping the car silent. But this car needs to make a little noise, so I decided to modify the stock middle pipe.

Gives a little bit more sound, without being to loud.

Also weighed it, and it weighs a mere 6.7KG .
