Yes I used the whole system, Vida Dice 2014d I believe. There is also a step by step process to calibrate the top by taking measurements on all the parts involved by taking readings at the windows and top. I do believe that the dealer can only do that with a VST 2000. So, calibration might be a dealer issue only. However, I got the top error codes via the CAB module which in turn gave me all the error codes for the top. Things like tension rib opening and closing current too high, time condition error in movement, lock and cover lock faulty signal and that the top was in an invalid position. I think this all means it needs a calibration? If anyone has any ideas it would be greatly appreciated. The nearest dealer is in Houston and a 2 hour drive away. Still learning to use the software correctly and a long way to go.
