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!




VW Lupo 1.4 old sparkplugs replaced

Driving 140km a couple times per week stresses the car more than you would think. Keeping it in tip top shape is important, even more so with an older car like our VW Lupo which was born in 1999 (1.4 16v, engine code AHW). Less than a year when the last service was done, I checked the spark plugs (as it was starting a bit rough). Look at the picture to understand why…

Please note that I needed to wait before the NGK Iridium sparkplugs (type: BKR6EIX-11 3764) were delivered, So I bent the old one, so that the gap was made smaller.

Toyota Aygo Boot Leakage Fixed / Solved

Ik had het niet meteen door, maar mn reservewiel ruimte zat vol met water. Ik had de gebruikelijke plekken al afgekit, zoals de aansluiting met de achterlichten en de rubberen dopjes voor de achterklep. Maar nog steeds bleef er (veel) water binnenkomen. Nu las ik een tip over 2 ventilatie gaten achterin en dat was bij mij ook de oorzaak. Ik heb rondom de rubbers veel kit gespoten, zodat de aansluiting op de carosserie nu 100% waterdicht is. Dit was ook de oorzaak van beslagen en bevroren ramen (aan de binnenkant) Probleem opgelost!

Deze tip kan je ook gebruiken voor de Peugeot 107 en/of de Citro├źn C1 (C ONE)

Haal eerst de achterbumper los, zodat het er zo uitziet. Tip: maak meteen de schoon waar je dalijk niet bij kan.

En kit dan rondom deze 2 kitgaten
