GM-Tech-2-2

The following 3 paragraphs are what I mail to obd2tool.com:
I tested device and it works well. Problem is the screen. I believe for return I would have to send back and pay for shipping. This would take a long time and I have work to do using the tool.
Right now I am using a laptop connected so I can see the full screen

GM-Tech-2-3

I would rather do partial refund or try replacing the screen myself.
Will you do a partial refund?
Can you send or help me find a replacement screen?
I have been happy so far with obd2tool.com so far. The price, service and shipping speed was good.
I hope we can reach a positive solution.

Finally, obd2tool.com ship me a new package.

Just want to let you know, I finally took the time to really test out the replacement I was sent and it appears to work perfectly.

One small issue is that I was sent a Car Diagnostic Tool GM PC Card and not a Saab one. I tried to write the GM Card in my laptop to Saab software but I ended up damaging the card. It was my fault. I know that I could have contacted you for help and you would have taken care of me.

I was able to find another Saab Card and get it working so I am very happy now. I do not need any more help.

Which Windows OS is best for TIS2000 install 64 bit possible

BEFORE installing the TIS2000 Software… it will work just fine. Remember that THIS machine deserves to be a Dedicated Computer… with nothing else in the way of any after-market Software that might interfere with the installation, operation and behavior of the TIS2000 Software… Before…During and After the CD(s) are installed.

TIS2000 software: (GM, Opel)
TIS2000 software: (Saab)

READ THE CONTENTS OF BOTH TIS2000 DISKS BEFORE YOU START THIS INSTALLATION… THEN PRINT AND READ ALL OF THE “README” FILES FIRST… AS YOU WILL NEED TO DO SOME MINOR CONFIG OR DLL FILES EDIT(S) THAT JUST INVOLVES A SIMPLE “COPY-REPLACE” OF ONE FILE IN PARTICULAR… and so… not having to stop and browse about the HD DURING the installation to sort this out will help ease your mind about this. Perform that File R&R AFTER a Successful Installation of TIS2000 Suite onto your HP Laptop.

Prior to the TIS2000 Installation, You should go into your “Devices” Menu and Disable any and all of your Wireless and Hard Line RJ-45 Ethernet Components… you do not have to remove them… just Disable them all, While you are in there… make sure that your Serial Port and all Com Ports (Com1, Com2, Com3, etc…) are ENABLED and make a note of their order and status as being Enabled… both in the Devices Section AND in your BIOS, too! (Very Important Thing To Do). Unless you intend to pay ACdelco for a TISTIDS (TISWEB) Subscription for the very Latest Models of GM Vehicles… There is No Reason to have to Go On Line when using your “GYMKO” Scanner for ordinary PCM and Module Updates.

The reason the later (64) Bit Versions of Windows 7, 8 and 10 Flavors will NOT work for the TIS2000 Installation … is because they no longer support (16) Bit and (32) Bit Program Installer Applications without performing some very exotic programming leaps through hoops to awaken that feature… Hence… Windows XP-Pro SP3… is the EOL for the OS able to recognize the 32-cum-16 Bit installation requirements involved.

And just to give a better explanation of What all these limitations involve…and WHY they exist… Way Back When… GM , ACDElco and Hewlett Packard put their collective coconuts together to transition from the Old Tech1 over to the “NEW” GM Tech 2… and some Short-Sighted, Penny-Pinching Jackass on their team decided he could Brown Nose “The Corp” little by saving a Few Pennies on The Dollar short-sheeting the need for an Updated Binary Software Installer Application Layer…which followed on the heals of the Tech1. That conversation sounded something like THIS:

“Look… There’s no sense in spending any more money on Software or Technical Support than we really need to… so we’re going to use the older 16 Bit Model of the Application Installer for New Professional Diagnostic Tool TIS2000 Software…. Just like the Old Tech1 had … and we’ll save some Money doing it that way…”

I hope this long and drawn out explanation edifies on why there was a break point for the Windows OS… beginning and ending with the only 32 Bit and 64 Bit flavors that would tolerate this ‘installation regression’. They simply did not want to pay Programmers to prepare and have the Binary Hexadecimal Data String Read/Right Mechanisms updated using newer (32) Bit Code for the 1996 and later flavors of Windows Operating System.

This article goes thru unboxing and setup of the best quality GM Multiple Diagnostic Interface (MDI) clone / replica example, comparison with the prior generation GM Tech2 scan tool, and how to reflash (recover) the MDI device firmware and configure the settings using the Bosch MDI Manager for Windows 7 and up, and finally an intro overview of the ACDelco TIS2Web / TDS website subscription options / features.

The GM MDI replaced the Tech2 as the J2534 dealership scan tool starting with the 2008 model year, though there was some overlap with existing models thru 2013 when the Tech2 was finally no longer supported for new vehicles. For new models introduced from 2010 and later, the GM MDI or MDI 2 are the only diagnostic and calibration programming tools utilized at your GM dealer.

The MDI is not compatible with the legacy DVD based TIS2000 and only works with TIS2Web online, where you can use either SPS or the Global Diagnostic System (GDS) 2 online software. You can also subscribe to the Tech2Win software at www.acdelcotds.com which is a Tech2 emulator for working on vehicles prior to the 2008 model year in lieu of a physical Tech2 tool.

The reviewed Car Scanner MDI knock-off / clone / replica tool has a S/N of 22129579 (all of them from this factory have the same serial number) and supports all Chevrolet, Buick, Cadillac, Oldsmobile, Pontiac, Saturn, GMC, Hummer, Opel, Vauxhall, Isuzu, Saab, Daewoo and Holden makes and models of the applicable years. I purchased it on obd2tool.com
