HOW TO MAKE VIDA DICE TOOL DIAGNOSTIS NEWER VOLVO 2015-2018 ?
As we know newer Volvo cars need online access System(Buy Subscription) to diagnostic that is expensive is hardly bear
for some small repair workshop and Car owner.
You have 4 options for wok on Newer models:
1.VIDA DICE + 2014D with Edit SQL(or VIDA2015A)
2.VIDA DICE +VDASH
3.VOLVO VOE ADAPTER+ VDASH
4.Vida DICE + VIDA online Subscription
But on VIDA2014D some engines and VIN are not listed ,So you need edit the SQL data to add the VIN .
After these jobs you will make VIDA 2014D to suppot newer p3/p4 models (No SPA platform support and no V60CC yet.)
(If after this new SQL file replace your VIN still not suppot ,try read this Post for get help)

So, to update your Vida2014D Follow these steps..
1) Download the modified “BaseData” SQL files from here (https://drive.google.com/file/d/1uM2JvXlx48mRuD6yf8ufTyYf2L5na7CR/view?usp=sharing)
2) Unzip the files to a folder somewhere easy to access (Such as your desktop)
3) Stop Vida With Vida monitor (By the clock, Right click it, then choose stop)
4) Stop the VIDA SQL service (Windows key + R and type “services.msc” and click ok, now scroll down to SQL Server (Vida) and right click and choose stop)
5) now navigate to C:\Vida\db and take a copy of BaseData_Data and BaseData_log and put them somewhere safe just in case.
6) Now back to where we extracted the new BaseData files and copy them to C:\Vida\db , it should ask to over write the existing BaseData files. Say yes to overwrite them.
7) Start Vida with Vida Monitor (Right click Start)
8) Start the Vida SQL service (See item 4, but Right click and Start)
9) You may need to Repatch Vida.
Test Example :
This is a 2017 V40 CC…yes it says 2015….the year drop down has not been modified.
