GM Tech2 Scan Tool pass-through vs go-between

For program a module with GM Tech2 scan tools,there are two methods. One is pass-through and the other is using the Tech 2 as a go-between.

How to do?Here we go:

1.The pass-through is to use with a laptop in the vehicle and it just uses the Tech 2 as the connection between. This is the fastest and easiest way to do it.
That is, the data are directly downloaded from the PC to the ECU in the vehicle.
Although the GM Tech 2 is still necessary in the mode, the data entry and the download control is done directly at the pc. Altogether, the method is faster, and it is recommended when a pc with TIS2000 software is within 3m of a vehicle.

1.  Connect Tech 2 to the vehicle.
2.  Connect Tech 2 to the PC switch on Tech 2.
3.  Start TIS 2000 on the PC.
4.  Select the icon ‘Service Programming System’ (Fig. 1) on the TIS2000 start page.
5.  Start TIS 2000 on the PC.
6.  On the screen ‘Select Diagnostic Tool and Programming Process’ (See picture below) make a selection for

***Pass-Thru mode
***the reprogramming of an ECU that was not exchanged or the replacement/programming of a new ECU
***the ECU location.
Then clock ‘Next’ button.

2.The go-between method is for when you can’t bring the computer into the vehicle and uses the gm Tech2 scanner as a go-between. You connect the Professional Diagnostic Tool Tech 2 to the vehicle and download the module information that you want to program. Then you disconnect, run to the computer running Tis2000, connect it to the computer and download the programming information for that module, disconnect again and run back to the vehicle, connect it and it automatically programs the module. It can take a long time depending on the module (PCM is the longest).
Have fun in GM Tech II programming!
Good luck!

Tech 2 purchased- quality as my original, works good

Tech 2 review: (credits to David)

My overall impression after playing with the Tech 2 scan tool for a few days- This thing is cheap, works great, and is of the same build quality as my original. Some of the few differences that I immediately noticed are the buttons feel different and the screen is much brighter. The buttons on my original have a distinct “click” feel to them, and the clones are mushy. However I found that the more that I press them, the clickier they get. The screen being brighter is a plus.

I just did a “Fast-Learn” on a G8’s 6L80E last week with mine. A Snap-On MODUS was not able to do this. There are simply factory diagnostic procedures that a Tech 2 can do on GM vehicles that no other tool can. But yes, to reflash PCM’s, TCM’s, etc, you need to have authorization from the Tech Center, which means you have to be a dealership or a paying subscriber to the service which is a serious chunk of $$$$.

I reflashed my ecm. only have to buy the 55 dollar three day access. the Car Diagnostic Tool tis2000 software to flash, and the dongle key to unlock the functions to flash is and extra 25 dollars, and that was why my tech 2 cost me 325. cause i bought the software and dongle with it.

With that said, Bosch (who now owns the rights to GM Tech 2’s as they purchased out Vetronix), will not support the unit because it’s a factory knock-off. So should you have to replace the VCI module (I’ve had to replace mine due to wear and tear on the connection where it damaged the motherboard inside), or any other necessary repair.

Also, Obd2 tool Tech 2’s can only be updated through 2009 MY vehicle info, was my understanding from GM. For 2009+ GM has gone to a new setup called MDI. MDI is backwards compatible with pre-2009 GM vehicles (it even has the software on the screen to emulate the screens you’d see on the T2).

How to code Porsche 997.1 steering wheel to 997.2’s

1-1

997.1 upgrade to 997.2 steering wheel control module (997.613.289.01 or 997.613.299.01) need coding with Porsche Piwis ii following this step:

1. Select “special functions” and do a “vehicle handover”.

2. The “vehicle handover” runs automatically. When prompted if the car is new, select “no” and then confirm your chassis number (VIN). The “vehicle handover” is needed for recognizing your new steering wheel unit, so that all other control modules are able to communicate with it.

3. Select to “steering col. switch” unit and read and erase all fault memories. Then switch to “codings” and set “Automatic (Tiptronic/PDK)” and “PDK” (both!) to “installed”. Also set all your other values to “installed” if the car is equipped with them (for example speed control system).

4. Then select “PSM” unit and read and erase all fault memories. After that read your security code (The security code is read with the OBD2 Scanner PIWIS2
under menu item “Actual values”) and do a steering-wheel-sensor-calibration (security code is needed here). (some cars need this calibration clear PSM faults)

5. At last: Erase all fault memories and then have fun while driving a Tiptronic car with PDK-Paddles

How do I use GM TECH2 to replace Opel Corsa C ECU

This article is just sharing real experience when use GM Tech 2. Hope this helps someone.

I decided to invest in some tools to diagnose my Opel. After a couple weeks of searching all over ebay, aliexpress and other online store, I finally found the cheapest one on obd2tool.com, they were very fast to respond and answer all of my questions. I exchanged emails with Customer service for about 3 days before I finally decided to purchase a GM Tech 2 clone here. I ordered it on Tuesday and I picked it up at Friday (I missed the fed ex guy and you have to sign for it). Yes, it only took 3 days delivery!

I paid $349 for it. The quality of this is amazing. I would never be able to tell it was a clone. I hooked it up to my car and was able to replaces Opel Corsa-C ECU.

So here it is….

10-1 10-2 10-3

Below is the procedure, I search and learn from forum members:

1. Obtain all ECU pin codes especially second hand ECUs (immobilizer or engine). Scan old ECU to obtain VIN code and then obtain car passes to match.
2. Obtain all keys they will be required at end of procedure. SPS program new engine ECU with vehicle engine code and VIN number.
3. Configure engine ECU CAN configuration (Engine/ programming/ program CAN configuration)
Configure engine ECU variant configuration (Engine/ programming/ program variant configuration)
4. Reset engine ECU if second hand ECU use pin code from car pass (body/ immobilizer / additional functions/ reset engine ECU)
Reset immobilizer (body/ immobilizer/ additional functions/ reset immobilizer)
Reset BCM (body/ BCM/ additional functions /reset BCM)
Reset instrument cluster (body/ instrument/ additional functions/ reset instrument)
5. Program immobilizer function (engine and immobilizer): this will program everything together includes new keys. Have all keys programmed (body/ immobilizer/ programming/ program immobilizer function).
Check and clear all fault codes Engine immobilizer dash BCM ABS and gearbox. Road test and recheck it.

Great! I can see automotive diagnostic equipment GM Tech 2 replace a new engine ECU for Opel Corsa C successfully!

GM Tech II Saab card not find Bus ECU but GM card Solution

Car model and year:

’03 Saab 9-3

Tools I own:

I finally decided to order a clone from seller Obd2tool.com. It arrived this week (Monday), complete with all of the bits and pieces it was supposed to have, including a Saab card and a GM/Chev card.

I bought GM Tech2 $252 from obd2tool.com:

Package with Saab Card, GM Card , TIS2000 and Candi interface

shown as following package picture:

gm tech2

OS and computer configuration:

I have XP running in a VM on my Thinkpad with Windows 7 Pro, and TIS2000 is talking just fine to the Tech 2 via the USB to 232 adapter.

Operation:

1.Saab card can’t find any kind of Bus, or ECU

I tried connecting it to my wife’s ’03 9-3, and no matter what I do, it just can’t see anything on the car – it can’t find any kind of Bus, or ECU. The reason I finally ordered the thing was to marry a new ECU to the car. My cheapo card reader reads DTC’s and other info from the car just fine. I have tried it with version 143 and 148 (I re-flashed the one card with different versions) – same result, no bus detected.

The car was running, but going into limp home before I replaced the ECU…

2.GM card works fine on my Express van

When I pop out the Saab card, put in the GM card, the Car Diagnostic Tool Tech 2 works fine on my Express van – I was checking out all kinds of things, reading live data from the engine, playing with the radio, no problem.

Solution:

Used the Candi interface on my Express van – it worked.
