A connection error indicates that the FCA Toolbox is unable to reach the online update servers. Please ensure there is an active internet connection available and try to load the FCA Toolbox again. Please check the Antivirus, Firewall and Proxy Settings that there are no restrictions, because that can cause connection error, as well.
Why is FCA Toolbox not detecting USB flash drive?
- Make sure you have enough free space on the USB flash drive to which you wish to download map update. Minimum recomended free size: 16 GB.
- Check if the USB flash drive slot (reader) on your computer is working properly.
Why am I seeing ‘The computer has insufficient free space’?
FCA Toolbox needs to first download the selected products from an online server before copying the data to your USB drive. If you see this error, please ensure you have sufficient free space on your computer and restart the download and install process. The free space required varies according to map region.
Why does the download process fail?
The most possible cause is that the FCA Toolbox cannot reach the update server due network issues. Please check your network connectivity.
