    Downloaded last night. Got it running on an old Dell laptop with winXP. Works brilliantly except for vol 5 doesn’t list any wiring diagrams. It says need printed copy. Thanks a million all the same.

    I've found the above seller to be somewhat prickly to deal with in the past and thus I wouldn't recommend him.

    What I find strange is that he hides behind some sort of "Public License" to simply be able to duplicate a GM disc and sell them to make easy cash. I was always under the impression that GMH were really big on litigation and rubbing people like that out. Well I know they used to be.

    Hi Jamie,

    Yes the genuine Holden disc I have states that exact same thing as it would've been rather hard to use images that were really large on a computer screen.
    Volume 5 is one of the best parts of the series and is the hardest to obtain as it is full of large folded pull out pages with the complete wiring shown and all the plug configurations and explanations. Much better than all the earlier stuff GM had printed in earlier Service Manuals of say HQ etc.

    If anyone requires a certain page I'm happy to take a photo of the relevant pages of my book and send it directly to your phone.

    Cheers,
    VSL

    Sorry didn't recognise the name or care neither I didn't complain. Or try start an argument with a negative post. The admin did a good job removing the thread it wasn't going anywhere was it?

    Hi Jamie,

    With this version do you know what Supplement Volume it goes up to as there are 11 volumes with the last one being released during Series III, thus I feel not all the info was ever put out on any of the CD's that were released by Holden themselves.

    I'd love to know what they actually did apart from the printed books.

    My CD is version 3.0 issued December 1996. It only goes up to Volume 9 (Series 2) and doesn't cover Series 3.

    *** Edit *** Just had a look at the one on Dropbox. It's dated August 1996 and doesn't cover:

    Volume 6: LPG System
    Volume 7: VS Series II and 1996 1/2 Update
    Volume 9: VS Series II LWB and Update Info

    Perhaps someone else has a more up-to-date CD?

    There's also Volume 10 (50th Anniversary and Series III) and Volume 11 which covers the new V8 Engine Production Option XT9

    I'm not sure that they ever produced a late CD with all volumes included as by then they were well into VT and the hard copy books covered it all anyway.

    Have just received my last batch of manuals to complete my collection from VB thu to VS. It's a massive amount of paper all up I must say. The only books I don't have now is the Starfire 4 books released around VC era, but I really don't care about those as no one will ever be restoring one of those will they ?

    I believe the CD manuals were sub-contracted to Infomedia. Perhaps they have lost interest in enforcing the IP on 1990's manuals.

    I think that the Copyright might've expired.

    Infomedia's contract with GM finished/expired and wasnt renewed so they didnt continue there support for existing customers who had the manuals on CD- this was the case of my VY workshop Manual when i rung them to try and reinstall in on my PC, after a reformat.

    It only goes to vol 4. The link to vol5 says that wiring diagrams in print version only. This only Covers VS series 1 I think.
