thank you,Bob, yes i'm very happy with this find, at this moment i'm trying to repair the docking station (ordered a replacement ATX power supply and fitted a separate laptop 16v/5A power supply)
Ivo helped me with a Jaguar/Aston Martin / Ford HDD to make the WDS more versatile and i soon will try the same HDD in my Iveco IT2000 / GDS3500 tester to see if they are interchangable (waiting for the 128 mb RAM cards...)
i don't have a Jaguar myself (my ride is a tuned Suzuki Swift Sport, i'm sorry !) but when i get familiar with the tools and have all the needed adapters i will check if there is any local interest in Jag/Aston/Ford diagnostic service....

Somewhere in this topic somebody was asking for Land Rover CD13. I have got one. So if you would like to have more information about it, send me a PM.
It is working on Windows XP with a VCM (not updated I think) and correct cable.

And meanwhile, apparently I have been become a collector of working diagnostic stuff (last week I give my JDS parts away), and for my (smal) "collection" I am searching for WDS cable: B-298 .
I know it is a long schot but maybe there is somebody who can supply a picture, layout, pin out or even is willing to sell one.

Well i managed to repair my docking station using a 420w power supply with cut 3.3v wires + a separate 16v-5a laptop power supply - yesterday i finally succeeded in restoring the touch screen function of my Iveco IT2000/GDS3500 tester after i changed the mouse settings trying to activate an external mouse - i used a keyboard to activate the tabs and buttons and used the mouse settings of my Ford/Jaguar/Aston Martin WDS to copy them to the Iveco tester.

i also changed both bios batteries and the battery packs and i put 128 mb Kingston RAM cards in both machines to speed them up a little - i first put other 128 mb 66 mhz cards in both machines but they did not even boot with these cards - according to the supplier the Kingston card is really a 133 mhz card instead of 66 mhz (2x 66 mhz) so according to him that would be the reason his cards did not work….
I remember a post about someone reporting a working 133 mhz card so it might be possible…

the more i compare both GDS3500 machine the more differences i encounter - the Iveco tester is not a 100% copy of the WDS tester - the Iveco runs Windows NT 4.0 , it has a dedicated keyboard connection on the front and 2 rails to connect the IT2000 keyboard, it has 2 extra flat cables connected between the upper and lower board, it has a (non-working) usb and infrared port and it lacks the second pcb layer like the WDS tester .
It does however accept the WDS HDD so it will have to test if it does communicate with Ford / Jaguar/ Aston Martin vehicles using it's other pcb board setup....

This forum is great for finding info about the GDS3500 tester, lots of experience and very friendly and helpful people here !

this is the wiring diagram of the inside of the WDS ST-210 418-F245 diagnostic loopback test connector - it is not pretty but i hope it's understandable….
Maybe someone with better drawing skills can make a better diagram from this info....

i just noticed 1 fault in my drawing - the third (smaller) 1K resistor should be left out so mount only the right 1K resistor ……
the rest of the diagram is confirmed as i dismantled this test connector to use it as a base for a diagnostic lead for the Iveco GDS3500 tester (still have to find info about the wiring of this specific cable….)

I have the CD and I uploaded it to a Google MyDrive site.
Send me a message and I can 'share' if you provide email address.

You will need a few more posts and a certain amount of time for the Private Message privilege.

Angry Touch screen not starting


Hello to all members,
My WDS now do not start because it look like the GREEN button on the screen is not working now (I before changed the display which was with vertical lines but the new one was starting with a blank screen, no pictures. So,I wanted to reinstall the old, but now nothing start with the green button, the green led indicating the power is the only led on)
I would like to know if someone know how to start without the Touch Screen Green button?
Or if someone know where to find the Touch screen (ot the display, but the glass with the touch buttons?
I think that it could be because of the ribbon damaged....
Or some one have an used on to sell?
Thank in advance for your help!
Regards
Claude

Hi again!
Looking to buy: IDS v118.5 (my CD is damaged) and IDS-SDD v125.3..
Someone have experience with these version working with a VCM on a laptop like the CF-19 Panasonic?
Will these versions work with this touchscreen laptop?
Thank in advance,
All bests to all members

The WDS PTU is a Pentium I running at 233mhz. It was designed for Widows 98. (way too slow)
The IDS was introduced with the Panasonic CF-30 Windows XP PRO running at 1.6ghz

I am using a DELL C640 Pentium 4 running at 1.8ghz with XP PRO. I have IDS 118.5 and a Rotumda VCM. Toughbooks are nice but not necessary.

I don't think the newer VCM II is compatible with the older cars.
