    hi all,

    I got Error 1554: VMS: Not receiving VDS version number.
    The wiki says:
    But where do I find the battery fuse in the front hood? And what is the orange ESS Main Switch that needs to be pulled? I can't seem to find them. Thanks in advance for assisting! I already tried a different method I read about: pull blue and black cables from VMS. It resetted the VMS, but didn't do much good.


    Note: it's a 2.5

    If you get a chance, can you tell us where the switch you found is? I didn't know there was an "orange ESS main switch" in the trunk.

    it's not really in the trunk, it's behind the left strut trunk lid, around the area of the left rear tire wheel liner (where the OEM sub woofer would be).

    The orange ESS service disconnect is located on the drivers rear section of the ESS, exactly as spaceballs had indicated:

    When the disconnect is pulled (cap removed) it looks like this:
