Do you mean, you want to reprogram a replacement CEM? I think Xemodex can help with this

That's your answer to everything 😂 ....can it be done with Vida? I fixed a burnt circuit on the board. It's running now so I may do a CEM reload or upgrade...xemodex wanted 650$ basically, when your done with shipping, so that wasn't in my friend's budget..

Xemodex CEM cloning for that model is $299.00. Cloning is one of them things where ... if you need to ask how, your not qualified to do it.

Cool @ Rick because you don't how to do something doesnt mean that... That's laughable... This platform (Vida) is new to me , I'm a third generation mechanic shop owner... Megasquirt , hp tuners , snap on scanners , and full on tuning isn't new to me.... Example: if your qualified for new job and get hired wouldn't you still have to be taught that position? Ok

I can't be done just with the Vida that many Volvo owners have. However, I've noticed Xemodex is not a cheap company in any way. To me, the quote for the software transfer is way way too much. Xemodex is not the only out there.

Try searching internet for a similar service, just googling 'volvo cem software service' will bring some results. www.youtube.com/watch?v=kcHiGIQsURw

Here's just another shop (in UK) that does it for half the price http://volvodiagnostic.com/shop/index.p ... &id_lang=1

That sounds a little harsh

Harsh reality.

There is a reason you are telling him where to get it done rather then how to do it.


Exzile:
1. Reverse engineer the CEM PC board.
2. Read the Eprom.
3. Make a ROM image.
4. Write the ROM image to the new CEM.

There is no cookbook for the process.
