Re: How to clear SRS 232 1998 V70 T5

xiaotec "850 OBD-II" Android app ($2) and appropriate ELM327 cable will also clear '98 V70 SRS codes.

Re: VIDA scanner

You said you wanted to reset the SERVICE light. You already have an OBDII bluetooth. For $2 it seems like you would be willing to install "850 OBD-II" app, then test if your existing OBDII bluetooth tool will work with "850 OBD-II" app to reset the SERVICE light. If it does, then you'll also be able...

Re: VIDA scanner

If you have an Android device, you can use xiaotec "850 OBD-II" Android app (available on Google Play) for ~$2 + ELM327-compatible Bluetooth tool . Some ELM327-compatible Bluetooth tools I've used successfully with "850 OBD-II" app: - ScanTool.net OBDLink LX BT [recommended] - ScanTool.net OBDLink M...

Re: What OBDII Scanner Should I Get?

I suggest you PM xanthefin and ask him for a recommended tool. Tell him you're from Germany, so he knows you are ordering from Europe.

Re: What OBDII Scanner Should I Get?

eightfifty2x0, To answer your question... I think most USA '96-97 850 owners probably use a scan tool >= 1 time per year. Since 2012, I needed to use a scan tool multiple times per year (while I owned my USA '96 850 T5 and/or '98 S70 GLT). If your car has the in-cabin OBDII port, and if you have an ...

Re: xiaotec "850 OBD-II" Android app on Google Play for '96-'98 850/S70/etc

1. I suspect the #1 most important enhancement request for "850 OBD-II" app is to port the app to iOS (then to maintain it there for at least 1-2 years) . All other requests should probably be subjugated to that request, with the exceptions of: - bug fixes, - adding (or correcting) more DTC interpr...

Re: Speed meter 15% too optimistic Topic is solved

I will take a look what i can do. :) Thanks. Here's my ideas pertaining to Esperado's suggestions to uniquely name 850log.txt by including date/time, and to lessen Scan time when working on a single module: https://www.matthewsvolvosite.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=40&t=83145&p=544049#p544049 esl_97_...

Re: Speed meter 15% too optimistic Topic is solved

Esperado, I made the request to Aleksi, author of xiaotec "850 OBD-II" app, MVS's xanthefin, so that ECU 51 B901 = B2 displays as "178 EG 260" in the next release. He should soon know about this thread, the picture of your cluster showing the 260, your "SPEEDO is ACCURATE NOW" post, my previous post...
