Vida - modules greyed out?

Post by b3nb123 » Thu Sep 19, 2019 3:57 am

I've got VIDA working, can read and clear codes etc, but really hoped to be able to investigate my xc90's false alarms going off.
When I'm in VIDA- Diagnostic, Vehicle Communication - I can see all the car's modules, and can see most of them are green, but clicking on them does nothing except make the browser window seem to flash darker along the title bar. Like some sort of dialogue is popping up. But I can't see anything else changing, nothing to click on, no messages.
I've tried with the key in position I, II and with the engine running.
(out of interest, does it matter typically what position it's in when reading codes? I figured leaving the key in position II)

Any help? Thanks!

What I mean is, the green modules, when clicked on don't show any info below. See this example found on Google Images: Image
When I try, nothing appears below, the Parameters, Activations etc tabs are all greyed out.
Apologies, I don't think I explained that well enough
