GM TECH 2 Diagnostic tool – A quick word before buying on Obd2tool

GM-TECH-2-Diagnostic-tool-1

The GM Tech 2 diagnostic tool has been around since the 1980’s.  It has been the flagship diagnostic tool and programing device for many many years.  it continues to be a valuable part of the GM dealership stable because its quick, efficient, and works great!  Now that other diagnostic programs that are, for the most part, only economically  viable for GM dealership technicians to use (like Tech2WIN) the cost of Tech 2 has come down a little bit over years past.  It is because the Tech 2 has been around for as long as it has that it is such a copied and cloned unit.  Couple this to the advent of Obd2tool, allowing rip-off artists world wide to sell cloned duplicates, the glut of good people who want to work on their own cars and want a dealership level tool, and technicians who want to upgrade beyond a piece of crap generic scan tool for GM family cars, and what you are left with is a global marketplace where 95% of the stuff being sold here is a clone, or simply someone else’s headache!

All Tech 2’s are not considered equal. Tech 2 gives you unprecedented access to EVERY GM module and controller, provides the best and highest volume of vehicle data, and possesses the most bi-directional functionality of any diagnostic tool for GM family cars. There have been, however, a multitude of manufactures of Tech 2 over the almost 30 years it has been in production.  Very early Vetronix units had solder joint problems which caused random communication failures.  In addition to being an inconvenience, if this occurs during a programing event, you will be left with a garbage controller!  Later models are made by Bosch, who bought Vetronix.  They have cheapened the unit up so much that it is marginally better than a Korean clone.  As a matter of fact, most of the electronics are made in Asia or in Eastern Europe where most of the clones come from. This was done as a cost cutting measure.  The result is a slew of premature failures!  The units that reside in the “middle” time were made and marketed by others like Hewlett Packard and OTC.  These were the most reliable and durable units around.

Tech 2 is not only a diagnostic tool, it is also is capable of programing new and used programmable GM controllers, configuring functionality within modules and updating GM family cars with the most current programing.  You can gain access to programing on GM TIS on WEB website.  With very little effort, and cables that accommodate your type of PC, you can update or install programing in any GM family OBD II or CAN compatible vehicle.  Tech 2 can also be used on SAAB, Holden, Isuzu, even some Toyota vehicles with optional programing available through GM and accessible by anyone for weekly, monthly, or yearly subscription.

GM-TECH-2-Diagnostic-tool-2

A new Tech 2 unit retails for well over $4000.00.  Anyone who tries to sell you a new unit for less is selling you a clone that DOES NOT work on every GM car, IS NOT of any quality and has a high failure rate.  Clone Tech 2’s frequently destroy vehicle control modules, and are a complete and total waste of money!  A lot of people buy a Chinese or Korean clone, and have no idea they have a clone!  If they sell it to you, they didn’t know it was a Chinese or Korean clone.  This is a highly cloned tool and even the original manufacturer(s) built some low quality units.  Make sure of what your buying BEFORE YOU SPEND YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON IT. Clone scan tools are very easy to spot if you know exactly what your looking for!  On Tech 2, there are tell-tale signs of a tool being a clone.  Clone units DO NOT print on the unit that it is a clone.  Clone units DO NOT say “made in china” or “made in Korea” or “made in Poland” on them,  They say “Made in the United States.”  The idea is that THEY ARE CLONES and thus are lying to make you think your getting an authentic unit, when instead, your getting a huge piece of crap that is, literally, worth pennies!  There are hundreds of these clones out here on Obd2tool being sold by people all over the world.  There are private individuals who buy clones, either discover they have a clone and re-sell it as authentic, or have no idea its a clone and think its authentic.  They have no idea because they bought it, think they couldn’t figure out how to use it (when in reality, it didn’t work) and just re-sell it as authentic.  Either way, intentionally or nu-intentionality, you get stuck with it, and you may or may not know it until it burns out or destroys your cars computer costing you hundreds or thousands of dollars and untold hours and days of misery, just to save a few bucks!

To use a Tech 2 scan tool in this day and age, 90% of all software packages GM offers require a minimum 32 MB memory card.  A 10 MB card, although very useful for backup, data logging and flash programing, is useless for diagnostic programing for North American Operations (NAO), Saab, Isuzu, Suzuki and pretty much any of the other available software packages Tech 2 offers.

If you think that, just because your using a  Auto Scan ToolTech 2 for your personal use, you can buy a cheaper import unit, think again!  I see HUNDREDS of these units thrown on the scrap heap every year.  They cannot be repaired and are non-serviceable.  Not all of these units will accept GM programing, thus cannot be updated.  They are of grossly inferior quality and have an extraordinary failure rate, and damage more cars than I can express to you.
A couple ways to spot a clone:

If the Tech 2 your looking at has no production date on the inside cover for the software card on the top of the scan tool, its a clone.  If there is no date, your looking at a clone!
If the “VOID” warranty sticker is opaque in appearance and difficult to read, its a clone.
If the Tech 2 has little white stickers over the case half’s on each side with the word “VETRONIX” and Chinese symbols denoting a date, its a clone.
Most clones are being sold from Asian or European countries.  Why would anyone be selling an item that was built here, shipped over there, and than put up for sale over there, to ship back here?
Finally, there are PLENTY of people here in the United States selling clones!  They buy a few hundred of them, and un-load them on unsuspecting people calling them “slightly used” or surplus.  If they have very little feedback, or the feedback looks like it was written by a a foreigner, your likely looking at a clone.

90% of the units on Obd2tool are being sold by people who are intentionally selling you garbage, import clone units. They don’t print that they ARE clones, but they don’t print that they are NOT clones!  As long as their are ignorant people who are led only by the concept of saving a few pennies, there will always be clone items out here looking for an idiot to mate up with.  Of the other 10%, half of them are selling you a clone are have no idea they are selling you a clone because they have no idea what they have or they are un-loading an early or late domestically built model that they are trying to get off of because it has damaged their car or doesn’t work right most of the time.  Of that last 5% half of them are intentionally trying to rip you off!  You do the math!  Of one hundred Tech 2’s posted on Obd2tool, both new and used, maybe 3 to 5 are the genuine article and are high in quality.
If your going to buy something for thousands of dollars, buy it from someone who has the answers, knows the product and has priced it properly.  Please use my experience to educate yourself on what your buying before you go shopping for it, and form your own opinions.  Take advantage of this information to get what you want and get it for a good price.
No matter what you decide to do, thank you for looking in and I hope this information helps you get what you want.

How to use Nissan Consult III do ECU programming

Consult-3-Plus-3
I try to program a new blank engine ECM on a 2013 Nissan Armada. I purchased the software file from Nissan website and one Consult-3 Plus. I do not have Consult online synchronized with Assist. At first, I have no idea what folder to put this file in so Consult program will find.

I used ners and nissan file extracted to correct folders by itself. used unpack.exe. anyway here you go 6) For CONSULT III plus “Blank” ECU (ECM and non-IK TCM) Programming

Note 1: Before using this application, you will need to put the “programming” data file (*.dat) and the management csv file you received with the download, in the C:\ReproProgramming folder (see screen capture

above under item # 5). Without the programming data and the management csv file in this folder, the C-III plus application will not identify or display the applicable programming. The Auto diagnostic tool C-III plus software will check the part number of the ECU on the vehicle and display the reprogram to be installed.

NOTE 2: If this is the first time using C-III plus for reprogramming, you may need to make the C:\ReproProgramming folder. C-III plus does not automatically create the folder.

Why does MDI Explorer display UPDATE MDI SW

1.Why does MDI Explorer display UPDATE MDI S/W?
The MDI software needs to be updated. This condition typically occurs when new MDI software is installed on the PC.
Connect to MDI with USB.
*  Select ‘Update MDI’
*  Start Update’ to perform a software update

gm-mdi-10

2.Why does the MDI Manager not detect an MDI interface but the Properties tab indicates that the interface is properly configured?
In order for an MDI’s interface (wired Ethernet or wireless) to be detected by the MDI Manager, the PC must also be configured for communications on the same network.
*  For wireless communications, verify that the PC can communicate with the Access Point or Router being used by the MDI.
*  For wired Ethernet, verify that the PC can communicate with other devices on the network

3.Why does the MDI Explorer display UPDATE PC S/W?
This condition occurs if someone else has updated an OBD-II scan tool MDI from a different PC. The MDI contains newer software than the PC. The PC software needs to be updated

What is best NEC key programming tool for Mercedes

Every Auto Key Programmer that can program keys by IR will work on chinese keys(only write once). (ak500, noimmo, mercedes intrument, nec pro 57, diagspeed, thelegendweb, simon touch, vvdi mb tool and cgdi-mb)

With the tools I quoted above I can tell you guys that they all can program NEC chinese keys, some can also renew and program again these chinese keys.

Remember I’m talking about random NEC chinese keys, not BE keys from noimmo.

BE key from noimmo can be written/renewed/read as much as you want by noimmo mbkeyprog and various other tools already. I’m not going to specify their names because I haven’t tested them.

Regarding NEC EZS:

In this situation: EZS (NEC)+Working v51/57 NEC key, all these recent devices (such as VVDI MB, CGDI-MB and the like) can add new keys, and most can also program new elv.

In this situation: EZS (NEC)+Working BGA key, the device that can add new key/program elv is Diagspeed and VVDI MB TOOL.

In this situation: EZS (NEC)+All Keys Lost, there is NO PUBLIC DEVICE that will add new key/program elv. The suggested solution is to buy a “virgin” EZS and adapt it directly/gray key(depends on tool). Myself, I think this solution is very expensive and would only be worth doing it if the car can absolutely not get new EIS from dealer.

Update: VVDI MB + VVDI Prog are confirmed to work perfectly

VERY IMPORTANT: key types and key programmer

38-1

Regarding w204 ELV:

First you need to know if ELV is not working only because of broken motor or also NEC disabled.
When you insert key on EIS, if you ear relay’s “ticking” inside ELV it indicates NEC is not disabled yet.

If NEC IS NOT DISABLED:
-You can replace motor with a new one.
-You can replace brushes inside original motor.
-You can get a ELV from a crashed car from scrapyard and swap the NEC.

If NEC IS DISABLED:
-You NEED to get some information from the EIS/Key. (You always need a WORKING KEY for this situation, again, if it is BGA, only VVDI MB and diagspeed can do it.)
-After you get this information you have various options:
–Repair+renew+program the old disabled NEC. (only thelegendweb, simontouch and diagspeed can do it)
–Get a used (but working) ELV from scrapyard, renew+program it by plug connection. (noimmo, mercedesinstrument, diagspeed, necpro57 can do it)*****
–Program an emulator.
-Or you can go to dealer, owner must sign the papers and wait for the things to arrive(From a few days to several days depending on country).

Some of these solution involve opening/mounting/closing ELV which can be a hassle for many people.

*****You need to check that some devices/companies will charge you tokens to calculate files, renew units, etc.

Anyway, to me, my unbiased selection of the best device is Diagspeed or VVDI MB TOOL + CGDI MB if for all Mercedes, coz CGDI MB is the only for FBS4 but not for BGA that you should have VVDI MB or Diagspeed.

So you need to really know what you want to be able to repair and if it’s worth to buy a 1k or 3k or 6k or 8k or 10k device for that matter.

Diagnose Your Car for Less

23-1

Has your car’s check-engine light become so annoying that you’ve covered it with tape? You’re not alone. But there’s a better way: You can find the problem with an Onboard diagnostic (OBD II) scanner and fix it.

Each of the top-selling scanners we purchased from obd2tool is small enough to fit into a glove box and costs less than $100. But despite their low price, they can ferret out complex car problems. All of them work on cars made since 1996. Some are handheld devices with built-in screens, while others connect wirelessly to a phone or tablet. We took all of them on test-drives that included monitoring the car’s dynamic data and introducing faults.

Although an Auto Scanner Tool can’t do the actual repair, it can turn off the check-engine light and, for example, distinguish a broken catalytic converter from a clogged EGR valve, potentially saving you hundreds of dollars, all without requiring you to get your hands dirty.

We tested each OBD II Scanner and rated them based on features, setup and ease of use. We’ve also added the Amazon rating and Fakespot grade (which looks for fake reviews) for each scanner.

Not only will a good Professional Diagnostic Tool save you money, it’ll also make your life much easier. If you’re looking for a good OBD-II scanner that’ll give you the best bang for your buck, there are a few things that you need to know in order to make a well-informed buying decision.

Anyone know GM TECH2 and MID diagnostic tools

6-1

What is the difference between the TECH 2 hand held tool and the newer MID interface you use with a laptop? From what I read, the MID will replace the TECH2 but currently it doesn’t diagnose, just program. I need to diagnose a few issues on a 2007 Silverado, 2012 Cruze and 2013 Cruze flood car. The clones are under $400 so it might be time to get one.

The Cheap $224.00 to $400.00 Tech 2s, made in China and don’t even bother having updates installed.They will crash when when updates are installed.Overall the clone Tech 2s are good for what you are doing and are good as the real version now made by Bosch.The real version was made by Vetronix,Bosch bought out Vetronix in 2003.Also make sure it has the Candi box with it,a must for these CAN vehicles.

The last update for the tech 2 has already come out so, I would think about buying a new one unless you work on a lot of GM products.

Depending on the vehicle you’re working on, the GM MDI (Multiple Diagnostic Interface) will do everything a Tech 2 will do but, you’ll need a laptop and GDS software. Going forward from the 2013 model year, the MDI with a laptop will be the GM Diagnostic tool.

General Motors (GM) has launched Global Professional Diagnostic Tool (GDS 2) – its next generation, PC-based vehicle diagnostic system. GDS 2 is a PC-based platform that builds on the original GDS application, but also incorporates several new features, based on technician input. Combined with a Multiple Diagnostic Interface (MDI), GDS 2 provides an exclusive, effective and efficient system for the diagnosis of all the automaker’s new Global Architecture vehicles.
