Post by PatternFlyer »

I am in need of a new scanner as my old one got stolen.

So far, a few searches here came up with MD802 and VIDA DICE.

Search on MD 802 came up with Diaglink at Amazon and VIDA DICE came up on eBay.
Will these clear ETS, SRS lights?

Going to have subframe bushings and engine mounts replaced while having the oil pan removed for clog. (another subject search and may post more questions).

Thanks,

I have VIDA/DICE. Works great on the '99 V70 XC 2.4 T AWD.

It does require an older operating system - Windows 7 @ SP1 w/IE 9. Don't install updates or you'll wreck the ActiveX control used to interface with the DICE interface. I run it on a Dell Latitude D630 w/4GB Ram. Don't count on using bluetooth with the DICE box, I wasn't able to get that working.

Don't count on getting full support on it if something goes wrong beyond them potentially replacing the hardware involved.

In order to learn how to fix something, you must first learn how to break it.
