2017 Volvo FH4 FM4 work with Tech Tool 2.5.86 Confimed

Yes. Volvo PTT Premium Tech Tool version 2.5.86 and 2017 latest version PTT 2.6.36 both are able to work on Volvo Truck FH4 and FM4 the 2017 year:
Tested on 2017 model FH4.
Comes up as UPDATE REQUIRED because I think the apci+ is up to 11/2016 and the truck I connected to was brand new 2017
Nevertheless I was still able to change parameters

NB: after installing the software activate in normal mode (M140521) then update apci and then activate in dev mode (XX40645) then connect to truck. In normal mode does not read parameters on FH4 but in dev mode works fine.

 

Premium Tech Tool system requirements:

Windows 7 32bit / 64bit

the memory should be at least 4 GB, or it would affect the installation speed

clone review:

 

– the clone cannot update firmware
I checked into this further and you are somewhat correct, You can not update the firmware on clones so as new software versions come out, they read the firmware and won’t connect ultil you update the firmware. Since you can’t update the firmware it becomes useless.

I asked if the firmware can be updated or if the Nexiq Firmware will install in the clone and I was told No by the Chinese seller, The firmware in the device can not be updated. The Nexiq Firmware Updater will not work and may render the adapter inoperable.

Also for any warranty you need an RMA # and have to ship the adapter back to China, this is expensive and takes a long time so you get what you pay for. The only thing that looks the same is the case and the name, The guts are not the same.
They are lower quality unless you specify the componants and if the adapter or any drivers or software crashes you are left out in the cold with no support from anyone except a call center in china where they have few if any answeres.

I suggest you watch out for people on eBay selling Nexiq, Cummins or CAT Adapters, they too may be counterfeit… Buyer Beware!

 

 

– the clone Nexiq has different Bluetooth symbol and manual

 

I researched the clone and here is what I found out from Nexiq and other sources…

How to tell if you have a clone

The photo below is a real NEXIQ 12503 USB-Link

Nexiq-USB-Link-2-Bluetooth-original-vs-clone-1Nexiq-USB-Link-2-Bluetooth-original-vs-clone-2

The clone has the two case screws at the top facing the same direction where the real Nexiq has one in from the front and one in from the back.

The case that the clone comes in has square corners on the NEXIQ sticker where the real one has rounded corners, The nexiq also has and orange line under the word Nexiq where the clone has a darker almost red line.

The real one has a Bluetooth symbol on the front of the adapter label and the clone does not.

The User Manual for the real one is spiral bound and barely fits in the case, the clone has a smaller manual and is not spiral bound.

 

 

 

– be careful to buy a Nexiq clone off

 

I have had several people having issues with all the lights blink and they can not connect any more, you can not get warranty on Chinese clones so you are out of luck. Also Chinese clones are made with much lower quality than the real Nexiq.

I have had so many support issues that ended up being bad Chinese Nexiq adapters that I warn customers that if they have a Chinese adapter, they are on their own, I don’t support them and Nexiq won’t warranty them. Be Very careful who you buy a Nexiq off of. TRVideo is a supplier of the real Nexiq and has great support so that is the only source I recommend (Truck Parts Today)

Having said that, we supply Dearborn DPA5 Adapters and I fully support them, although to-date I have had no customer issues at all related to the Dearborn DPA5 – I have sold hundreds and I use one myself.

John Deere Service Advisor 90% works with Nexiq China clone

FYI, John Deere Service Advisor 90% works with Nexiq China clone.

 

Topic 1:  John deere SA possible with Nexiq usb link?

 

It is possible to install John Deere Service Advisor on your laptop, though the installation is really complicated. If you have a Lenovo Thinkpad laptop, the easiest way is to restore the main partition from the image of my computers’ c: drive. And every time i change my laptop, i just restore it.

 

Win7 installed and fully updated. It takes hours.

The image will not work on xp, but SA works fine. My suggestion, buy used Lenovo T400 or T500. it’s more or less 250eur in europe. Install windows 7 and then can put my image. Takes 10 minutes and u have SA working.

 

Topic 2: How to get Nexiq china worked?
I spent a month doing research on this and i managed my Chinese Nexiq to work 90%. The thing is that Nexiq has only 2 channels while EDL has 3. The 3rd one is Powertrain and it is used very seldom. E.g. I reprogrammed all the controllers on 6690 premium except two, but found a way around it opening the pld file with pldeditor and changing Powertrain channel to Vehicle (channel 1). Lots of machines don’t even have a 3rd Powetrain channel. Like all 5R; 6115R, 6125R, 7280R….. From my experience only the older machines have it and still can be programmed most of the time. Programming controllers is easy, but diagnostics is a bit annoying. Every time you establish the connection u have to remove the usb plug and plug it again for the readings to appear. Connection establishment is taking a long long time and you never see the ECU. Only all the other controllers. So all the time something doesn’t work. If you are prepared for this here is what you have to do:

  1. a) Rewire the the cables as shown in the picture in my post here:

nexiq-wiring

I switched places channel 1 with channel 2 (see the pic) with my Chinese version and now it works fine, probably it was possible to do it adjusting the software settings as mentioned above, but i tried a lot, and nothing helped. Now i can connect, tried with 6125R and 5070M. Works fine!!! Except one very important thingy. After i establish the connection, all the reading give the same meaningless number. Then, I discovered accidentally, I pull out the USB cable, get the message “Connection interrupted” I put it back in, get the message “Connection resumed” and wuolla, all the readings show up immediately.

 

  1. b) You don’t have to change the firmware. Both will work pretty much the same but with different issues.

P.S. For diagnostics only, there is a subprogram of SA that works without any cable rewiring, it doesn’t have a Program Controller option, and you still need to reinsert the usb after connection has been established. You just need to select the right port (which is usually 1939ImplementAutoboud or 1939AppAutoboud depending on the machine) and model. If you have SA, you will find the software at c:\Program Files\Service ADVISOR\xvds\XJDET.exe
Just to let you know, after a year working like that, i bought another EDL (recommended by a folk in the forum, much much much more than the old one)
So much relief

 

 

By the way, now i have John Deere Service Electronic Data Link EDL2 here:

It is cheaper, it’s just that not many people know by what code to search and this info is/was not for public, therefore Thanks would be appreciated
