Ktag v7.020 DPF & EGR and DTC deleted: success

In summary, i’m satisfied! This ktag works good for me, without issues.

Later, i’ll test on more (Mercedes S Class W221 ME9.7 ECU, Vw passage 1.6 TDI pcr2.1, etc.)

Ktag Kess V2 NO 12V (customer solution)

Hi all and thanks all for your responses. Here, i collect working solutions of Ktag or KESS V2 NO 12V. Hope it helps someone out.

Part 1: Cannot get 12v of output from Kess V2
I use a AC power to connect to my kess V2 adapter. The seller gave it. it it 12v and 1A.

When I use my kess I’m following the next steps.

1 ) Connect the adapter to kess unit
2 ) Connect the ac power adapter to the adapter
3 ) Connect the usb cable to kess unit and the computer and tun the software

My kess read ecus by OBD port. I read a seat leon 1.9 BXE perfectly. It is other edc16 ecu.

The Ksuite shows it has 12,16V-12,30V all time while it is trying to read.

I tested my power supply and it give 12 volts

Solved!

25-1

Part 2: Ktag NO 12V

Got a K TAG Clone since a few months. did about 10 ecus with it, no problem! Since today i’ve got no 12 volt on red wires. Normally when i click read 12v appears on red and orange wires. Now only on orange. When i connect red and orange together everything works like normal.

Here is the board with faulty component(s)

25-2

Changed this component and it worked.

25-3 25-4

how to fix Tech2 reports SAAB mass airflow deviation issue P0101

MY GM Tech 2 Diagnostic Scan Tool has reported this issue for a while. My car has been throwing a mass airflow deviation code sporadically while driving. I reset my ecu, drive around for a while but the code will pop up again. When it throws the code the ecu also limits torque (the 04’s way of limp home mode).
I have gone through all of the vacuum lines and was not able to find a single leak anywhere. I think the MAF sensor is bad but I just wanted to get an opinion before I buy a new one.
Here are two pictures showing what the Tech2 Scanner is reading, one is the fuel adaption and trim which should be close to 0% I believe and the car is doing this because of the air deviation. The other is the actual air deviation test; normal fuel correction should be closer to zero, I think it says normal range is between +/- 5% and same goes for the air deviation at idle.

I also took a video of the numbers read from the MAF sensor, which should be sitting between 3.5-4.5 g/s at idle. Mine sits below 3.5 most of the time and jumps up above 5 sometimes.

9th January 2015 update:
Replaced the MAF today, and the readings on the sensor are better (I think that MAF was going bad, I think there are multiple problems) but I’m still getting the p0101 airflow deviation code. I don’t believe that there is a leak on the line or in the intercooler anymore because I ran some tests with the tech 2 and noticed the only time there is an airflow deviation is during idle or letting off the gas. While under high load, deviation sat at right around 0%.
Going to try some more stuff out tommorow. Will report back.

10th January 2015 update:
Today I replaced the Charge Air Solenoid which is located on top of the turbo bypass valve next to the intake filter box. I drove the car around for a while with the tech2 and the air deviation was sitting right around 0%!
I think it is fixed now, I’m going to drive it for a few days to test but so far it seems the MAF and the Charge Air Solenoid were both going bad if not bad already. When I looked up what can happen when that solenoid goes bad, a few spots said it can cause the turbo to “pump” when letting off the gas which in my case caused a sharp fluctuation in MAF calculated and recieved during that time. It also is used to regulate engine idling so I believe thats why I was seeing a large deviation in idle as well.

GM Tech2 Vetronix Scanner Feedback Yes and NO (All Here)

This article includes all GM Tech2 scanner Vetronix  clone feedback Yes and No list, aiming to help the GM technicians who are new to GM Tech2 Scanner.

Before continuing reading, please note GM Tech II works not on truck; go for VXDIAG VCX HD for truck.

GM tech2 Vetronix to test OK

Item No. SP23-C, with Candi interface for C6, $349 (bought from Obd2tool.com)

Item No. SP23, $285 (cheapest)
I have no other GM Tech from the same shop, but as I know some guys test ok too.

How to use GM tech 2?

Plug and play, no need install on computer.

tech 2 handheld scanner

15-2

Test Report:

Remind: press Ctrl+ F to search is easier.

Part 1: Feedback Yes

– Used my GM tech II to retrofit tcs and marry a non divorced cd changer.

– reads everything a genuine one does. Heck, it’s probably made in the same factory as a genuine one with a different sticker on it. Pinpoint bad air bag sensors, turned on the tpms on both our Z’s.

– It works exactly like any others I’ve used at gm dealers over the years

– $339 for a brand new tech2 with a CANDI module all the cables and adapters and case is great

-connected to my intimidator ss and everything was there

– Change one of my c5s that is canadien to US to disable the auto headlights because they don’t always open when they should and when they do work right they come on too early.

– You have to specify GM English when you order the unit. There are a lot of other cards for different languages Saab, Holden, etc

– Is now fully functional for F body, C5 and C6, It cost me a lot more than the initial $1000 that I thought was a good deal.

– Plugin to my ’08 93 Aero and play around with the typical body and key features. My primary reason for picking up the Tech II was to program a spare key. I figured ~$500+ at a dealer or ~$400 on my own would be well worth it…obviously if I received a working, defect free, unit.

– Programming a key and changing some of the standard comfort features.

– Able to get security access using an old Dell laptop from my IT guy’s graveyard.

– Programming a new key was easily as 1-2-3

– Changed my key-unlock settings to all at first press, and then lock on drive off/open on key out was a snap.

– If you had a Tech2, you could possibly talk to the dealer and have them access their TIS system to load the BCM or PCM calibration to your Tech2. Some may do it.

If you can’t do that, just buy additional TIS2000 with USB key.

– Hooked it up to test engine, ABS, transmission etc, stored DTCs, Freeze Frame, live data all the test result were displayed on the large, easy –to-read backlit screen. It helped to carry out accurate and stable diagnostic function.

– Compared with GM MDI, Tech2 scan tool covers more vehicles including OPEL, GM, SAAB, and Isuzu.

-used it on my GMC for air bag warning

-Tried it on my 2006 Silverado & worked ok.

– The tis 2000 needs windows XP, Vista, win8.1, Win 7 32 bit.

– Able to easily and completely program out the TPMS system

– I have used mine to do two crank sensor re=learns and did the brake bleed on mine for the EBCM flush and it worked fine

– I am fairly certain it works on all GM cars til 2013. I have used it on my 03 GMC full size pickup, and my sisters 07 Trailblazer !!!! (and my 99 vette of course).

-If you have a 1997-2000, the TPMS is in the firmware and cannot be programmed. With the addition of the Z06 in 2001-2004, it can be programmed.

– Bleed the ABS ok.

– Used to cycle and bleed the ABS brakes on my C6 ok

-Plugged it in to my 2011 Z06, and activated the Afterblow feature. I also cleared some old DTC codes that were in history. It works just fine and the quality feels genuine. It’s a pretty good knock off. Even came with all of the stickers from the Veltronix manufacturer. I assume they are knock off too.

– Used it to program my key fobs for my Malibu but also have 4 other Chevys

Part 2: Feedback NO

– GM tech2 scan tool would NOT work with All C5’s, if you are going to use it on a C6,, make SURE you have the CAN D modules.

– Cars only, no trucks, be advised to use Allscanner VXDIAG VCX HD heavy duty scanner.

Ford diagnostic tool review :
VCM 2 is more stable and good clone.
Full chip high quality VCM2. But be careful programming!

VCMII is just slightly more expensive then VXDIAG VCX NANO.As far as I know, it’s hard to find a good independent workshop there. There’s a few in RJ though
Vxdiag VCX NANO is a VCM emulator. You can not use use it for anything else. But you you use VCM II for Pass Thru for Xentry, HDS, TIS, GS2, JLR, Volvo, Nissan Consult and numerous other. Right people can flash it Maserati/Ferrari.
VCM 2 is the right choice, if you buy a good clone with a good serial.I can confirm this. Good pcb.

10-4 10-5 10-6

All Ford diagnostic tools above all share the same IDS software and functions. All work no issues in OBD II Scanner, key programming, ecu programming/reprogramming. But clearly, they are different from the software version, firmware quality, stability and speed… the PRICE tells. You will get what you pay for. And yes, you need LUCK with items from China.
