DiCE has an integrated OBD cable, which can be connected to the vehicle's diagnostic socket. When connected to the vehicle, DiCE is powered as long as the battery is charged.
Use the DiCE unit's folding hook to hang it from e.g. one of the grab handles. The DiCE unit should be hung in such a way that the Bluetooth reception is optimised, i.e. a clear line of sight from the USB dongle to the DiCE unit.
DiCE has four status LEDs that indicate:
• Firmware Status
• USB Communication Status
• Bluetooth Communication Status
• Vehicle Interface Status
DiCE has a DC input where a battery cable or adapter (12 V) can be connected. The adapter is used when
upgrading and troubleshooting the DiCE. It may also be used when performing complex methods in VIDA,
which requires the vehicle battery to be temporarily disconnected.
