Thanks for this, my hopes are up again.precopster wrote: ↑Fri Aug 25, 2017 3:24 amBasing your responses on actual experience might be more productive.mrbrian200 wrote: ↑Thu Aug 24, 2017 6:01 pmI'm pretty sure cloning ID48s (this is sort of new) can't be accomplished without interacting with both the original working key and the vehicle...and a login to a service that uses a supercomputer to break the encryption string. Which probably puts this guy back at square one.
ID48s can EASILY be duplicated by experienced guys. Doublebug did the same thing for me on a customer's 2005 XC70 late 2015. The car had lost transponder codes through manipulation of the CEM by a third party repairer. They may have blanked and reloaded the CEM with some corruption. Old keys produced "starting preventing" on DIM. New transponder codes were created by Doublebug for both the CEM and ECM. New ID48s were purchased by me and taped to the old key blade. Old ID48s had to be removed and placed as far away from the antenna ring as possible to avoid interference. We made 2 x new ID48s for the customer's old keys and to this day the car still starts using the new ID48s and old remotes.
It's quite a long story with this case but Volvo dealer had attempted CEM reload multiple times and gave up, the final diagnosis was that the car required a new CEM at a cost of thousands. Because a configuration change in the CEM had been detected by Volvo's servers the car had been blocked. Dealer was not informed by Vida at point of download other than a "failure" to download. Even if a new CEM had been sourced the download would still have been blocked and car would have been scrapped no doubt.
Just goes to show it's who you know and especially in my case not "what you know". All I had to do was provide a connection to my laptop and have a Dice connected to the car. Doublebug did the rest.
Just to be clear, is it "Doublebug" or "Doodlebug"? i sent a PM to doodlebug and i am yet to get a response. he has been recommended to me prior to now because of the lesser time zone difference. i have also sent a PM to yagger some minutes ago.
Could you please bring Doublebug's attention to this thread.
