Volvo tech tool question
Can anyone shed a little info about tech tool 2.5.87 dev.
Using the Noregon dla2.0. Every time I try to connect to a truck it sits and sits on the screen with the green line.. it has never completely connected to any truck.. on the same screen it says the datalink being used needs to be upgraded to a newer version.. but the version I have is newer than the one it ask for. Does anyone have a good copy of tech tool that will allow me to perform turbo,gear ratio and other parts that may need to be programmed on a Volvo? Or have any ideas of what's going on with this copy..thanks as always guys

If it's not broke...then don't fix it

RE: Volvo tech tool question
On the firmware it say suggested firmware was the newest one at the time techtools was made .. it should work and connecting issue .. what year .. when you do a manual connection can you choose the vehicle is it blank? Sometimes it takes 20 mins to connect .. anything 2013 and under ptt1.12 works better

RE: Volvo tech tool question
Long winded.

2.5.87 dev. is a great version. Pretty stable on all but older, 2010/13 and older trucks.

Programming. . . . There are different levels of access for PTT when it comes to programming and WHAT you can program. Like "Campaigns", "Accessory Kit" and so forth. All the newer licensed versions legally have to let you do updates to certain components that deal with emissions. Changing the gear ratio or recalibrating the odometer and speedometer is done under Calibrate.

Firmware version v4.0.6323.1 is what you need to make the Noregon work.

Any interface device that works with PTT unless it is a VOCOM is SLOW. They will work but again SLOW. You might have to enter information into PTT to fill in the gaps. Also. Not to many people know this but "bad" versions of PTT won't work on all trucks. There is a new safety measure that is added to some trucks that they will not connect or they brick the truck if you use a pirated version. Not super common but they are out there. Most of my trucks all have it.

The Software if pretty cheap and once it is yours it is yours. You don't have to keep buying it unless you want the new version that comes out a year after you buy it. Than its $200 for a new years worth of updates and unlimited tech support.

Last interesting thing. Not sure if you know but all the repair manuals are online for free. No special access needed. Both Mack and Volvo. They run 1-2 years behind. To get those you need to either logic base diagnose or have a fleet support guy email them to you.

Some tips.

Always make sure Tech tool is up to date via the Client update on the windows tool bar. Major releases will be updated via disk sent through the mail. They cost money
Always make sure the interface adapter has the latest drivers installed. The manufactures list driver updates on their web pages.
Make sure the correct interface adapter is selected in Tech tool. You can check this under the settings tab on the product page. Make sure the adapter is showing
If there is no power light lit up on your adapter, check the fuse labeled Diagnostic tool or Diagnostic connector.
Allow the Tech tool to identify the truck. Do not click the connect button when the product page first loads. The could take 1-2 minutes depending on the truck and adapter used. VMAC I trucks will require a manual selection.
If you are experiencing connection issues, control unit mismatches, incorrect model or electrical system populate, or operations for that vehicle are missing, do the following. Disconnect the adapter from the truck and PC for at least 2 minutes. Click “Finish Work” on the product page in Tech tool. Go to the “Latest selections” list and remove the VIN you are having the issue with. Power cycle the truck for at least 10 seconds. Now re-connect to the truck.

VMAC I – 1990-1997. Engine: E-7, Two modules: ECU and FIC (Fuel Injection Controller). Modules are located together, in front of passenger seat. Requires a manual selection in Tech tool. No guided diagnostics in Tech tool, requires service manual: 8-201. Uses a 6 or 9 pin diagnostic connector. VMAC II – 1995-1997. Engine: E-7. One module: ECU. Module is located in front of the passenger seat. The latest version of Tech tool should automatically identify the truck from this electrical system on. No guided diagnostics in Tech tool, requires service manual: 8-206. Uses a 6 or 9pin diagnostic connector. VMAC III – 1998-2006. Engines: E-7 ETECH, ASET AI, & ASET AC. Two modules: Engine ECU and Vehicle ECU. Engine ECU is mounted on the engine, Vehicle ECU is located in front of the passenger seat. No guided diagnostics in Tech tool, requires service manual: 8- 211. 6 or 9 pin diagnostics connector. VMAC IV – 2004-2013. Engines: MP Series. US04-US07 Emissions use Two modules Engine ECU and Vehicle ECU. US10 Emissions added the Aftertreatment Control Module for the SCR system. Tech tool has guided diagnostics for US07+ Emissions trucks. No guided diagnostics in Tech tool for VMAC IV US04 emissions, requires service manual: 8-213. Uses the 9 pin diagnostic connector. VMAC IV+ - 2014+. Engines: MP Series. US13+ Emissions. Three modules: Engine ECU, Vehicle ECU, and Aftertreatment Control Module. Added the ISO powertrain data link, has the 16 Pin OBD style diagnostic connector. Requires the Volvo/Mack specific 16

Kinda went on there. Sorry.

Cheers!
