It's a 96. I've got a cable that 'should' work with VOL-FCR. I'll give it a try this weekend and see if it does. Afaik, VIDA/DiCE only works on models '99 and up.
As for the ABS module, I did clear most of the silicone cover off before I attacked it. I most likely just really need to desolder it properly, clean it up and redo the main joints. Its on my list! And I know the ABS pump wiring is not insulated too, so I'll fix that up as well.
