Q5: the Volvo VCADS software works ok on windows XP. but the control unit will not connect to the laptop. The com connection is ok.
When I plug the unit into the truck diagnostic port the power light comes on and the blue USB light flashes very fast in a random sequence.
I have connected it through the RS232 lead and the RS232 light on the control box does not light up at all.
I have a message saying “ERROR 10104
Communication problem with control unit or vehicle
No connection through the USB cable at all.”
A5: It is the COM PORT setting problem, your computer COM PORT should be set as the same as the software COM PORT.
