John Deere Diagnostic Options

John Deere Diagnostics

John Deere has recently been in the news because of their strict opposition to allowing farmers, equipment owners, and repair shops access to the information they need to repair and maintain their vehicles. If you read the main stream news, you would be left to believe that John Deere diagnostic with a computer is impossible. Well, we are here to help dispel that myth and give some more exposure to some tools that actually do perform diagnostics on John Deere. There are actually several solutions in the market, some of which we will cover in this post.

John Deere EDL and Service Advisor

The very best solution in the market is what the dealers use. John Deere dealers use a combination of PC-based computer with two critical components – John Deere Service Advisor software and the John Deere EDL v2 Adapter. The EDL v2 adapter looks like the picture shown below. It comes with a hard carry case, the adapter itself, a 9-pin connector, and the USB cable. This tool is available for purchase from our website as well.

The John Deere EDL Adapter also has a variety of “extra” cables you can purchase, almost all of which are for some of the much older equipment. You can see all of the available cables on our website.

The problem comes into the other side of the equation — The diagnostic software. The Heavy Duty Scan Tool John Deere dealers refuse to sell this software to anyone. This includes owners of the equipment, repair shops, or anyone else for the matter. The reason for this is simple: Dealers don’t want anyone besides themselves to perform John Deere diagnostic tests and commands, since it would in sense be money leaving their own pockets. If there is no one else that has the software solutions to perform the advanced diagnostics, the customer has to go to them. However, we were fortunate enough to have the opportunity to get our hands on this software, so here are some screen shots showing what this software looks like.

Unfortunately, as stated previously, this software isn’t available to purchase. This leads a lot of customers to seek alternative means through bootleg, pirated copies of the software from China or other black market sources. For most customers, this isn’t an option and it leads us to our next solutions

PF-Diagnose by Pocketfleet

PF-Diagnose is an universal “read everything” program, and works very well with John Deere. With this software, you would be able to read all the diagnostic trouble codes, view all the live sensor, and clear codes. Unfortunately, this tool is “read only”, so you won’t be able to perform diagnostic tests or advanced functions. However, for a lot of customer, this is a good option and gets them more then they could do before. This tool also has a low entry point, and is available for immediate download.


TEXA Diagnostic Tool: Off Highway Edition

TEXA is a company in Italy that has been around for more then 3 decades providing advanced diesel diagnostic solutions, including John Deere diagnostic software. TEXA is the only one that gets anywhere close to the ability of the John Deere Service Advisor software. TEXA has coverage on all John Deere market segments, including Agriculture, Construction, and stand-alone engines sold in generators, air compressors, and other equipment.

With TEXA Off Highway Edition, you can not only view live data, view/clear codes, but also perform John Deere diagnostic commands on the engine. Some of these commands include:

Cable Diagnostic Mode
Communication Error Test
Cylinder Compression Test
Cylinder Cut-Off Test
EGR Valve Cleaning
Enable low pressure fuel pump
Engine load profile
Clear codes
Exhaust temperature management test
Fuel dosing pump diagnostic test
Air throttle actuator learned value reset
Clear after treatment latched error codes
DOC calibration
Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) calibration
Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) service regeneration
EGR valve calibration
Engine hourmeter
Injector Programming
Reprogramming VGT learning values
… and many more!

The TEXA system can also handle John Deere diagnostics on other sub-systems such as Chassis Management, Instrument Panel, Rear Hydraulic Lift, Transmission, and other systems. Here is a detailed video that gives a walk-through on a 2012 5E Series Tractor.

How to install TIS2000 TIS2Web GlobalTIS for TECH 2

This is Trollhattan’s contribution for those interested in playing with a Tech 2 Scan Tool, here’s a little info regarding the software requirements once you’ve got your hands on a Tech 2 handset.
Firstly, I’m by no means an expert on this having only recently got this up and running myself, but I think that’s the tricky part. I’d welcome comments on where this post can be improved/altered etc. Most of the information is already out there on various boards/forums but it would be nice to try to bring it together for us with a purely Saab interest.
For those who don’t know, the Tech 2 unit (handset) can be used to interrogate the various management modules on the car (ECU) to report status, fault codes and perform manual activation and monitoring in the event of fault occurrences/engine management light occurrences. This in itself is incredibly useful, but it is also possible to reprogram modules within the car to change various functions and add or replace faulty modules and programme keys. Whilst the diagnosis side can be performed standalone, to be able to actually change settings on the car, Tech 2 ‘Security Access’ is required, which means activating the Tech 2 handset via PC software.
The original Tech 2 handsets were produced by Vetronix/Bosch and were used across the GM range. Therefore, the Tech 2 unit can be used on a wide array of cars but you must have the correct model software loaded on the removable PCMCIA card. This is what turns the Tech 2 into a Saab Tech 2. (If you have mates with GM/Suzuki etc cars, you can do diagnosis on them as well by just grabbing the appropriate software card.)
The PC software also adds other functionality such as being able to update the Tech 2 software, the car ECU software, print-outs of ECU data and additional diagnostic services – I believe the TIS2Web actually includes schematic diagrams and other WIS (workshop) info, but I have yet to investigate this.
So, for the software itself, there are two options.
1. TIS2000
2. TIS2Web/GlobalTIS

If you get a clone, this generally comes with a couple of TIS2000 CDs/DVDs. However, these are generally NAO (North American Operations) and do not include any UK/European Saab models. In fact the only Saab this will work with is a 9-7x which was a GM US-built SUV – anyone got one of these???  Anyway, the crucial point is that this software only supports models up to 2007/8 (which is probably good enough for most of us) so if you’ve a later model you’ll need to use TIS2Web (see below). But as I said, this software as supplied does not include Saab models, so to run it successfully:
a) Download Saab TIS2008-2. This is the update disc you need to turn the GM application into something useful. You can find it if you’re patient…  Best to burn the image to a CD.
b) Install the GM TIS2000 application (needs to be Windows, 32-bit operating system). If supplied with a clone, there are normally two discs. One is the app, the other is the GM update disc, which is not required. If this is the case, install the first disc only but don’t run up the application on completion. If you didn’t get it with a clone, you can get a copy with the USB dongle for about £15 (see e) below). If prompted to select a registration method, select USB Key and OK the prompts.
c) Insert the SaabTIS2008-2 update disc (or mount the drive) into the same drive you installed the original GM TIS2000 application. This is important as the application will only look for updates at the same drive letter (i.e D:) that was used for installation.
d) Start TIS2000 from the desktop icon/start menu and OK it when it asks to do the update. When the update is finished, you’ll have a Saab 2008-2 installation.
e) All that is now required is to activate the software to get security access (enable Tech 2 programming). To do this you’ll need a USB key and patch available from the same sources as the clone Tech 2 units. These are around £15 and come with the TIS2000 GM software, or may even be supplied with the unit.
TIS2Web or GlobalTIS

TIS2Web is essentially an updated version of TIS2000 with some additional functionality (I’ve yet to play properly with it). Some may say this is the preferred option as it’s backwards compatible with earlier models and covers up to MY2012. The basic features are borrowed from TIS2000 though. Only disadvantage is it’s a bit trickier to get it working.
a) Acquire a copy of the Saab TIS2Web software. Again, this needs to be the Saab version. You can pay less than a tenner for this on the auction site, or you can find it on the internet if you look.
b) Install the software. This takes a little time and, unlike TIS2000 which allows much functionality without activation, you can’t do anything with TIS2Web until you’ve activated it.
c) Open the TIS2Web application. The application runs in a web browser so will open your default browser. This can take some time to open.
d) Once you’ve got to the registration page, you need to enter dealer information. This can be gobbledegook but I think you need to fill all the fields. Save this and then go to step e).
e) Click on the Email/Fax registration. This will generate a PDF which you should save. The important stuff is the Request ID and the Software Key.
f) To get your activation code, you need to be nice to members on one of a couple of auto diagnostic forums (unless you know someone with a keygen for this). Searching the net for this sort of stuff should bring them up as top search matches. You’ll need to join the forum, introduce yourself and politely request a code. Don’t upset them, they’re helping us out and there’s a bunch of knowledgeable people on there so no harm in being a member.
g) Once you have the code, enter it and activate TIS2Web. You’re done.
Faultfinding the TIS2Web install.

You may well have a couple of issues getting the software running initially. If your web browser refuses to connect to the TIS2Web service, it’s likely that one of the two GlobalTIS services are not running. To fix this, open the ‘services’ console either by
Start>Run and type “services.msc”
Right-click ‘My Computer” select ‘Manage’ and drill down to the services icon on the left pane.
There are two services that should be running and they’ve got obvious names, something like GlobalTIS and TC6 (not near my TIS PC at the moment) and sit next to each other in the services list. In the information pane they should say ‘started’. If not, right-click and select ‘start’. If this fails with an error, try modifying the registry key below.
To open registry editor Start>Run regedit BE CAREFUL MODIFYING THE REGISTRY – YOU CAN REALLY SCREW YOUR PC UP!!!!!
In the left pane, expand the keys until you find the following
HKLM\Software\Apache Software Foundation\Procrun2.0\Global TISTC6\Parameters\Java\JvmMx
Change the value of this key from 0X0000044 to 0X00000200 and exit the registry. Try to restart the service – you should find it now works. Don’t ask me why, I got this fix from another forum – fair play to the guy who found it.
Tech 2 Hardware Issues

It’s widely reported that the manufacturing quality of some of the clone units can be much lower than the originals and there are reports of issues. I found that the flat grey ethernet cable supplied with my unit was faulty and caused me much confusion until I threw it out and replaced it with a standard network cable. You can check you have RS232 comms using the GM TIS2000 install and going into the Auto Scanner Tool Tech 2 View option. Don’t mess about with serial port settings etc as if there is a physical connection there it will work without interference. Only pins 4 and 5 of the RJ45 RS232 socket are actually used. The units are also supplied with a loopback adaptor so they can be tested internally.
Occasionally you may find the Tech 2 doesn’t connect to the car. Check your connections are secure and reset the VCI module (the thing in the base of the handset held in by the plastic release button).
Wow, quite a long post. I’ll add more if necessary. Let me know how you guys get on. Please remember that YOU CAN REALLY BREAK YOUR CARS REPROGRAMMING THE ECUS so be extremely careful, ensure good battery voltage and good connections while uploading data to the ECU. Save what’s on there first before you make any major changes.
Again, I’m very new to this myself but thought I’d put this here for like-minded Saab nuts who want to get involved with this stuff. I’m sure there are others on the forum who have much more knowledge and experience with the actual programming and diagnostics.
For now, I’m happy to have disabled the nagging seatbeat chime (am I the only person who likes to let their car warm up before driving off?) and altered the boot lock logic so it doesn’t lock itself at every available opportunity. Oh, and I’ve activated the zap sound so I know it’s been locked.
Be careful, have fun.
P.S I have no affiliations with any of the sites/software etc just spent a long time getting this working and wanted to share it to save others the hassle.

Toyota Techstream V14 reviews failure or success

Do you have any good success with TOYOTA Techstream V14 latest version? Here are Techstream V14 reviews.


Related Contents:

TOYOTA Techstream V14.00.018 (02/2019) free download on win7

Review 1: failed

Have weird issue with Techstream (v14.00.018). I can’t see any interface  when I go into ‘VIM Select’.
I use MongoosePro cable and it works with other software. So this in not an issue with a cable or drivers.
I have also Xhorse 3in1 and the same problem.

Review 2: failed

I had the same problem – can’t see any interface although I can’t remember exactly what I did to resolve it. I believe I did a uninstall, clean with ccleaner and reinstall. You can edit a config file in the tech stream directory to manually select your interface as a way around it.  I’ll have to look at which file it was exactly when I get back to work Monday

Review 3: failed but works now

Had this problem also some time ago.
Something about software conflict. If you have HDs, IDS or JLR installed on the same computer, I’d start by getting an OS where none of them is installed. It’s not happening for everyone so I can’t tell which exact circonstances Makes this happens

Review 4: failed

It does not matter if it works with other software,techstream need to recognise the cable with the drivers for techstream…
Try installing in a laptop that does not have other software for mongoose,to see if its fixed…If it is,then drivers confict between the programs

Review 5: failed but reworked

I had the issue but got it to work again.
As suspected issue was triggered by me when playing with Honda HDS/i-HDS.
To make it fun, in my system problem occures when I uninstall SPX MVCI drivers(I don’t have such interface at all) which are part of HDS.  That’s the moment I lose all interfaces in Techstream.
That in theory should have nothing to do with Techstream, but it does. I can easily reproduce it. I tried that.
I can’t explain why it happens exactlly.Probably there is still some conflict in Windows,since such correlation shouldn’t exist. At least I have now Techstream and HDS working again on my machine.
I still would like to know in which file of Techstream there is an option to force which interface it willl use.


So, what is the latest version should you use for Toyota diagnostics?

Techstream v13.

v14 is only for vehicles made after jan 2019 and also it have some programming issue…

v13 (even the crack sw) can be used with relief coz it has been tested by real professionals. success on Windows 7 for Toyota customization, diagnostics, programming. works perfectly with MINI VCI cable and VXDIAG VCX NANO Toyota …

Look here: Techstream v13 tested successfully

How to solve GM MDI Interface not connecting errors

Here are all solutions aimed to help fix GM MDI Scanner multiple diagnostic interface connection/communication issues (connection by usb, wireless ethernet, wired ethernet)… big thanks to all contributors and

For mdi not connecting…

First, you should make sure that the MDI Manager software should be installed on the PC and the MDI must be powered up before you use it to communicate.
Also the MDI should be configured for wired ethernet or wireless communication. If the USB is available, the MDI will connect by using the USB and if not, the MDI will connect by using wired ethernet and if neither of them is available, the MDI will connect by using wireless.
If the MDI can not communicate with the MDI, you should check the cables if they are securely attached to the MDI, if the MDI has completed its power up sequence, if the connector pins are clean and if the MDI Manager software is running.

In detail…. mdi connection can be discussed in the following 4 parts:

Part 1: GM MDI USB connection
Part 2: GM MDI connection by wireless ethernet
Part 3: GM MDI connection by wired ethernet
Part 4: Tech support: GM MDI not connecting

Part 1: GM MDI USB connection

And if you connect them by USB, you need to check the MDI USB connection is detected by windows. About the solutions, you can connect the MDI to the PC USB port and power up the MDI. Open the Network and Dial-up Connections Window from the Windows Control Panel. Then check for the device name ETAS USB Remote NDIS Network Device. If it is not running, check all USB ports on the PC and verify that the MDI is powered on.

GM MDI Manual: What if MDI fails to connect on USB
*   Check USB cable connections.
*   Check Firewall Settings on your PC.
*   Verify a USB Hub is not being used (MDI has a fixed USB address).
*   Verify that only one MDI is connected to your PC using USB.
*   Verify the USB driver has been installed on the PC (look for device name ‘ETAS USB Remote
NDIS Network Device’ under Network Connections).
*   Try connecting to other USB ports on the PC.

Part 2: GM MDI connection by wireless ethernet

If you connect them by wireless ethernet, you should make sure that wireless communication is enabled and the IP configuration is properly set using the MDI Manager software. Then what you need to check is that the USB cable is not plugged in, the MDI is not being used via wired ethernet and the wireless card is properly seated in the MDI. You can contact your IT department and check that your PC is detecting the wireless access point and the correct security settings have been configured for the MDI.

GM MDI Manual: What if MDI fails to connect on Wireless
*   Check the wireless card is properly seated in the WiFi GM MDI.
*   Confirm LEDs on the wireless card are lighted when the MDI is powered.
*   Verify the MDI and PC are within range of the Access Point or Router.
*   Verify that the PC is connected to the Access Point or Router.
*   Verify signal strength of the wireless network from the PC.
*   Check Firewall Settings on your PC
*   USB connection takes precedence, unplug USB cable.
*   Wired Ethernet connection takes precedence, unplug Ethernet cable.
*   Connect to MDI using USB and run MDI Manager to verify the Wireless Settings are
configured correctly.
o Wireless interface is enabled.
o AP settings configured for proper security (authentication, encryption).
o Signal Quality (fair, good, excellent) indicates connected to AP.
o The MDI, PC and AP are on the same subnet
o If using static IP, verify the IP Address and Subnet mask are correct (supplied by network

Part 3: GM MDI connection by wired ethernet

And if you connect then by wired ethernet, you need to ensure that the wired ethernet communication is enabled and configured using the MDI Manager software. Then you should check that the USB cable is not plugged in and the MDI device detects wired ethernet activity by viewing the lights blinking on the wired ethernet port of the MDI. And also you can contact your local IT department and check that the MDI and the PC are on the same subnet.

GM MDI Manual: What if Car Diagnostic Tool MDI fails to connect on Wired
*   Check Ethernet cable connections.
*   Check Firewall Settings on your PC.
*   Verify the MDI and the PC are cabled into separate LAN connections on the same network.
*   Verify that the PC is properly configured and can communicate on the network.
*   USB connection takes precedence, unplug USB cable.
*   Connect to MDI using USB and run MDI Manager to verify the Wired Ethernet Settings are
configured correctly.
o Wired Ethernet interface is enabled.
o If using static IP, verify the IP Address and Subnet mask are correct (supplied by your
network administrator).

Part 4: GM MDI not connecting

This is professional technical support for the error ” not connected to MDI”.

All what you need do is to refresh the GM MDI firmware

*   Press this button and connect the power:

*   Keep press this button and connect it to power, the power light will be on, wait about 10 seconds:

gm-mdi-not-connecting-1 gm-mdi-not-connecting-2

*   When all light is on, then you can release the button, and it will enter firmware refresh status:


*   Connect GM MDI with your PC via USB cable, prepare to refresh the firmware:


*   Open “GM MDI Manager”, choose “Recover”:


Program A New ECM Module to Nissan Murano with Consult 3

Background information:

A Nissan Murano Z51 3.5L CVT 2012Y  had an accident.  The lower part of the connectors of the original engine control unit moved by 7-8mm inside the board, half of the pins are broken off, one heating channel of the upper lambda does not work, although the field effect transistor is jerky. Got and most lambda, but it has already changed.

Bought a new ECM, there were no problems with snapping, software is different. The old module stands still, the new Nissan Consult III Plus lies on top:


Disclaimer: The tutorial was translated from Russian. Credit to Car-Buster. You are at your risk.

Marking the old ECM module: 23710-1AA4B
Marking the new ECM module:  23710-1TJ0A


Well visible recessed connectors:


Back of the control modules


During this procedure, all previously programmed keys are erased, so it is strongly recommended to register all keys at a time:

Device used:  original Consult-III diagnostic without the Immo card , and with the correct software:
If you using the clones, better go for Consult III Plus, Nissan Consult 3 Plus adds ECU programming function without working with immobiliser card since software version v65.12.


There are many step-by-step screenshots, so I’ll lay out the most basic.
After installing a new unit, the car naturally won’t start, there will be an active error due to mismatch of ID keys recorded in the ECM and Immo , in short, there is no sync P1611 ID DISCORD IMMU-ECM :


Yes, the ignition turns on, the starter turns but the car no start
Let’s go.
Turn off the ignition, turn on the emergency light, connect to the car, choose vehicle model Murano Z51 after 2010.v. and press the Select button :


Confirm the choice with the Confirm button , but now select Repair :
Click on the tablet (top left):

We drop down the list and select NATS :

Click Start :

In the menu that appears, click Pin Read and Next :

We get the PIN 14A06 , press END :

You also need the generic code Immo , in our case variant is 1211 :

After this, select STRG LCK RELES (KEY ID ERASE) , this procedure will erase the keys and pre-lock the steering column latch:

Enter the Immo code, 1211, and run the procedure:

Everything is carried out with the ignition off and with the emergency lights on. We hear how the steering column is unlocked, and the ignition is now turned on only when something (key) is inserted into the emergency key slot. And one more thing, the ACC mode disappears , this is normal, that is, immediately switch ignition OFF-ON and not like people OFF-ACC-ON :

The next step, turn on the ignition with any key, and in the NATS menu we already choose C/U Initialization :

Enter the immo code 1211, and go to the last screen, claiming that initialization is completed:
Turn off the ignition, take out the key (it has not yet been registered, but served only to start the procedure). Now we insert the first key into the slot, turn on the ignition, turn off the ignition, pull out the key, the immo indicator flashes 5 times. Repeat this procedure for keys 2-5.
In my case, only 2 keys. Turn off the ignition, check the operation of the radio channel from each key. Works. Now remove the first key away from the car, and leave the second inside, start the engine – with a half kick. For the second key is similar.
As a result, there is no error in heating one of the upper lambda, and in the current data adequate readings. Engine speeds develop adequately without kicks. New engine control module was replaced successfully.
