WELCOME TO VIDA 2015

Welcome to the new VIDA (Vehicle Information and Diagnostics for Aftersales). Several years of development have been put into this new workshop application. We have incorporated feedback from our users, as well as made changes to accommodate our future vehicles. VIDA 2015 has an extensive HELP section which can be reached at any time simply by hitting the "F1" button on your keyboard.

VIDA 2015 is 100% internet based, which means you will always have the most current information at your fingertips. Changes and corrections can be applied with a much shorter lead time.

  • Volvo Standard Time (VST) information is integrated into VIDA.
  • Starting with XC90, fault tracing will be displayed and shown in a ranked order.
  • Wiring Diagrams will be an integrated part of the repair process.
So install VIDA 2015 and explore the great changes and improvements of this new workshop application.

INSTALLING VIDA 2015

After purchasing your Subscription through the Volvo Tech Info website STORE, please follow the steps below to install VIDA 2015.

If you are a FIRST time buyer, you must wait for an email (could take up to two hours) containing your permanent User ID and a temporary password that needs to be reset, along with a security question for future reference (if you have purchased before you will have your User ID and password already from your prior purchase). You must follow the directions in the email to reset the temporary password. You should NOT try to log into VIDA or WSLX without first changing this password. After this is done you can follow the steps below to activate the subscription.

  1. Login to computer with Administrator rights.
  2. In Internet Explorer, enter the URL http://vidainstaller.volvocars.biz/client-installer/VIDASetup.exe
