This is the VODIA "main menu". Tap on the function
group name. To return to the main selection screen, tap
on the selected function group name in the drop down
menu above the group selections or use the back arrow.

Service and maintenance - General tests and fault
tracing for the entire system.

Engine - Tests and programming related to the engine
and the engine ECU.

programming related to the EVC system and CIU or DCU
in industrial systems.

tings and calibrations.

Service and maintenance

Log Test

Function group - service and main-
tenance
The Service and maintenance function group contains
general operations for the entire system and some useful
tests. The Sea trial and PDC tests have separate instruc-
tions.

Log test, industrial or marine

This operation is used for logging parameters (PID/PPID)
over time. There is a maindata list and several predefined
templates that can be used when logging. Custom tem-
plates can be created by pressing the New button and
deleted by pressing the Delete button.

How to create a new template:

1. Tap New�
2. Enter a template name and description.
3. In the MID number tabs mark the parameters to log

by tapping on them.
4. Tap Save.

Logging data:

1. Choose a template from the list.
2. Tap and again to start the test.
3. When finished, tap
4. Type in a file name

If a request fails a star (*) is displayed instead of a value. If
the request continues to fail the star becomes red, which
means that no more requests are made. The reason for
a failed request can be that the parameter is not valid/
exists in the installation. If the parameter has a continu-
ous output value, a max and a min value can be chosen to
be shown. Tap and hold the parameter name and choose
"Show details".

The logged data is saved in a SYLK file (Symbolic Link,
*.slk). It can be downloaded from the VODIA Web under
VODIA - Jobcard - View jobcard or directly from the
VODIA Tool using ActiveSync. The file can be opened in
programs like Microsoft Excel or Open Office.

Error codes

The purpose of this test is to read error codes stored in
the control units. There are two different types of error
codes, active and inactive. Active error codes indicates
present errors. Inactive error codes indicate errors that
have been registered at any occasion but are no longer
present. Inactive error codes can be erased all together or
individually.

An indication that the connected system has an active
error code is a little red dot in the lower right corner, the
so called "lingonberry". It is visible from anywhere in the
VODIA menus. See illustration.

When read, all error codes are stored on the job card.

Note! All logged error codes are erased when
parameters are programmed or read when using
VODIA. The error codes should be identified and
then saved to a job card to ensure that the error
code information will be available later on.

1. Tap the start button to read out the error codes.

Active codes are marked with a red icon on the left
hand side of the error code.

Inactive codes are marked with a grey icon on the
left hand side of the error code.

2. To get detailed information about an error code, tap
the icon next to the error code.

The following information is presented:

• MID (Message Identification Description): The control
unit, which transmitted the error code message. The
designation of the control unit is also displayed in
plain text (Engine control unit for example).

• PID (Parameter Identification Description): The Pa-
rameter which the error code applies to (Fuel delivery
pressure for example).

• PPID (Proprietary Parameter Identification Descrip-
tion): Volvo unique PID, see above.

• SID (Subsystem Identification Description): The com-
ponent the error code applies to.

• PSID (Proprietary SID): Volvo unique SID, see above.

• FMI (Failure Mode Identifier): Type of error.

• Number of occurrences.

• Status: Active or inactive.

• First occurrence: The date and time when the error
code was first stored.

• Last occurrence: The date and time when the error
code was last stored.

• Total engine hours: The total number of hours the
engine has been run.

The VODIA Web

VODIA offline installation

The VODIA offline installation is a compliment to the
ordinary application downloads from the VODIA Web and
contains the complete applications including the VODIA
application, PentaEDC1, PentaMEFI and PentaEDC4 and
databases.

It is always recommended to check for the latest updates
on the VODIA Web, but if the connection speed is slow
VODIA offline installation can be used.

To create a VODIA offline installation, download the file
below from a high speed internet connection (large file
size). Finally, unzip the files and burn to a CD-ROM.

Support
When you're in a situation where you need central support
from Volvo Penta there are a few simple preparations that
will speed up the support process. Follow these instruc-
tions to get the quickest possible support.

Use the support system Argus under service and war-
ranty on VPPN and always include the following informa-
tion when creating a new Service Request:

• Log files, SSD file, Job card file, see the in-
struction on how to find them below.

• Chassis ID
• Description/Complaint

Get Log files, SSD file and Job card
1. Connect the PDA to the PC.
2. When the ActiveSync icon is green, right click and

click Explore.
3. Go to My Windows Mobile-Based Device\SD

Card\vodia and copy the ssd�sdf file.
4. Go to the jobcards folder and copy the corre-

sponding *�jc file.
5. Go to My Windows Mobile-Based Device\

Program Files\volvo\vodia and copy the logs
folder.

When you have all these files, make a zip file or attach
then one by one in the Argus Service Case (SR).

Attach files in Argus
To attach files to a case, you first have to create the Ser-
vice Request and fill in all the information. When the case
is created, go to My active Service Requests, click on
the Service Request you just created, in the lower part of
the page click Add Attachment and attach the above
files.
