MDI 2 Features

Data Link Connector Cable

TheData Link Connector Cable is the external test equipment(ETE) cable that connectsthe  GM MDI2 to the vehicle’s SAEJ1962Data Link Connector (DLC).The DLC Cable with the grey SAE 1962 connector is specifically designed for the MDI 2 and measures 1.8 meters in length.

Power Source

The MDI 2 is intended to be powered from the vehicle battery via the DLC Cablefor normal use. If the MDI 2 does not have sufficient power (12V) to perform vehicle diagnostics, the MDI 2 will inform you of insufficient power for diagnostics by blinking the Vehicle LED in the color Red.  This scenario can be seen when the MDI 2 is only powered from the 5V USB connection to the PC.  If 12V power is lost or not detected while the MDI 2 is communicating with the GDS2 or Tech2Win application, the MDI 2 speaker will also beep to inform you of the loss of power.  Beeping may occur if the DLC is accidently dislodged.

The MDI 2 may be powered over USB only to perform firmware updates fromyour PC. 12V powercan be supplied by the vehicle DLC or the DLC Cable Self Test Adapter.

Some IMPORTANT information about powering your MDI 2:?
12V is required for Vehicle Communication?
12V is required for Wireless Configuration and use?
12V is required for use of the Self Test Adapter?
5V or 12V required for MDI 2 firmware Update or Recovery

Note: The DLCCableSelf Test Adapter cannot be used for vehicle diagnostics.LED IndicatorsSevenLight Emitting Diodes (LEDs)are located on the front of the Automotive Scan Tool MDI 2. The LED indicators provide the following status information

What does the CANdi module do

CANdi adapter user manual for  GM Tech 2 clone scanner:

What’s the candi module?

What is the real purpose of the candi module?

What is the CANdi module used for?

What’s the physical interface and LED?

“NO CANDI Communication Established”

What’s the candi module?

An industry change in protocol from OBD II to Controller Area Network (CAN) is ongoing. In order to perform diagnostics on a vehicle that uses the CAN interface, you will need the Tech 2 and a CAN diagnostic interface module. The CANdi module connects between the Tech 2’s diagnostic link cable and the OBD adapter.



The Controller Area Network Diagnostic Interface (CANdi) is an in-cable module that works with the existing Tech 2 components including the VCI, cables and adapters. Installed, the CANdi module is fully backward compatible with current tester functionality. The module powers up in a way that makes it transparent to the user.

That is, unless the Tech 2 enables features specific to the CANdi module. This allows the existing Tech 2 software to be used with no changes, whether or not the CANdi module is installed.

What is the real purpose of the candi module?

The CANDI module reads the CAN Network on cars that have it. Corvettes 2005 and newer use the CAN Network. Still use a OBDII connector but the Candi module is needed to read the data on the CAN Network.

What is the CANdi module used for?

The primary function of the CANdi module is to add CAN capability to the Tech 2 scan tool.

The CANdi module:

– support simultaneous communications on three CAN buses

– provides high speed UART communications with Tech 2


What’s the physical interface and LED?

CANdi adapter connects the Tech II by way of the existing Data Link Connector (DLC) Burndy Connector. The vehicle side connection remains unchanged using the existing adapter to interface between the Burndy connector and the SAE J1962 connector. When functioning properly, CANdi’s LED flashes. In the vent of a problem,the LED will be constantly illuminated.



How will you do with “NO CANDI Communication Established”?

How-to’s of CANDI module communication errors:

“CANdi module was not detected for Tech2”


“NO CANDI Communication Established”

First, please make sure you plugged the candi adapter in to the car and the tech 2 before powering up

Then, disconnect the connector leaving the candi adapter going to the OBD port. Plug it back in and make sure its real snug, then plug it into the obd port. I need to do this every now and then with my clone one. Usually it works after. Suspect the pins arent making the best contact.

Tech support from professionals:
*   With the car ignition off, connect the GM Tech2 and CANdi module (which is now one long cable).
*   Power up the Tech
*    You’ll get 12V from the DLC (now it takes me a half hour to find the “DLC means” Data Link Connector “and is what we also call the OBD2 connector, so be prepared to be stumped by TLA’s (Three Letter Acronyms)
*   At the main menu press F3-tool options
*   At the tool options screen select F9, CANdi Diagnostics
*   There are two tests on the next screen, run them both. The CANDI should talk to your 2004+ car
*   Either turn the ignition key of the car, or start it (for a C6 there is not an “on”).
*    Press the EXIT button until the Tech 2 goes back to the main menu.
*   Select F0, Diagnostics.
*   Make sure you want to look at the module. You may be choosing body style; You may need the body code (sometimes the third character in the VIN) You may also be asked about certain options, like ZL6. They are on a tag in the glovebox.
*   After that you will be able to play with the Tech2 clone.

IMPORTANT: Sometimes, it’s just problem with candi, as when using on other cars without candi, it’s just perfect. So you should have a good candi such as . It’s just better, but still needs to connect a few times. So I you can buy another card 148. If not totally solved, rewrite the card to 143 and 136. Both work fine. That is, 148 is no good for candi. Could be corrupted software, or the card problem. These cards coming together with Tech 2 are not good sometimes. You’d better but china knock-offs from a man of his word to trust in. Here, is one of them you can go with.

Why should buy Xentry connect

Xentry Connect C5 Benz SD Connect DoIP Wifi MB Star C5 Xentry Tab Kit Diagnosis Multiplexer
Benz c5 can provide complete diagnosis for the newest hybrid W222. And it has a qualitative improvement in hardware and software by authorization of diagnostic interface to control the software.
The tool we sell do not include the xentry tab, you can equip one yourself or choose other laptop, it is just as a display, no special requirement.
Xentry Connect (VCI+) Technical Parameters:
1.OS: Windows Embedded Standard 7(32bit)
2.Processor: ArrandaieCeleron P4500 oder P4505(38W TDP)
3.Memory: 4G hard disk with 256GB SSD

6.Weight: 1.9KG
7.Network connection: WLAN : IEEE802.11 a/b/g/n2.4+5GHZ
The way to connect: support wireless connection via 1000M workshop switches, also support wired connection.

What the difference on diagnostic systems based on Xentry Connect from other equipment used to diagnose Mercedes cars?

What are its distinguishing features?

Hardware, despite the similarity of many solutions with multiplexers SD Connect –
but the different All diagnostic software is loaded into the Xentry Connect multiplexer itself.
The management software can be installed on any computer with Windows 7 – 32-bit or Windows 8 – 32-bit and serves only for communication with the multiplexer

The licensing system is reworked – now licenses are stored on MB servers – Any license changes are tracked by the multiplexer when connected to the Internet network.

Why should buy Xentry connect

After 2015, all Star Diagnosis equipment is no longer supported. First of all, this means that there is no update of the diagnostic data for the newest cars and their systems, as well as the lack of the possibility of coding and programming of electronic units due to the backlog of the software data level in the device, from data in the electronic control units of the car.

Already at the end of 2014, at most dealerships, almost all of the previously used Star Diagnosis Compact4 with SD Connect DoIP multiplexers were almost completely removed. Instead, dealers received Xentry Kit kits, which include the latest Xentry Connect multiplexers and Xentry Tab tablets from Panasonic. Tablets are custom-made, although they also have a “civilian” version – the Panasonic Toughbook CF-D1,
somewhat inferior in terms of battery life to the original Xentry Tab, but it has a much more powerful configuration.

Honestly, the need to use the Xentry Tab on non-dealer services seems somewhat exaggerated to me. With dealers everything is clear – they were forced to use this equipment.
And what about workshop service? Undoubtedly, the tablet from Panasonic is not very bad … But … Its price is disheartening. The cost of the Japanese tablet is realistic to buy pieces of eight new laptops or tablets from other manufacturers.

So , we suggest buy Xentry connect from us , then buy a laptop yourself . the software from which Xentry Connect is managed can be installed without any problems on any computer that has a 32-bit version of Windows 7, Windows 8 or Windows 10. It’s clear with Xentry Connect itself – there’s no alternative .
After all, in this choice there are many reasons that encourage one to make a decision. The main thing is one: since 2015, the diagnostic multiplexer Xentry Connect C5 becomes the only one used at dealerships.
Thus, by purchasing this equipment, you do not lag behind the progress. You use in your work the best that is available today. Each your client, seeing with his own eyes that you in your work use the same device that he saw at the dealer’s service station, will understand that he made the right decision entrusting his car to your specialists.

Difference of SKP900 and CK100 key programmer

I noticed that many locksmiths on Facebook and forums are discussing about SuperOBD SKP900 key programmer recently. SKP-900 is becoming a rising star in locksmith industry while V45.06 CK100 has always been the hottest selling car key programmer in the past months. Some locksmiths then asked me what is the difference between the two tools and which one should they pick if they want to get a car key programmer. Here I will briefly list 5 differences between the two tools.

Built by SuperOBD Company, a professional manufacture ofcar key programmers and PIN code readers, SKP900 has better quality than CK100.

Vehicle support:

As a cheap device, CK100 is great as it covers many car brands such as Alfa Remeo, Audi, Buick, Chevrolet, Dodge, Ford and Citroen, but it does not cover all of their models, especially the newer ones made in 2014. Although the latest CK100 V45.06 supports extra Ford, Honda and Toyota cars than V45.02, its vehicle list is a lot shorter than SKP900 which supports almost all the vehicles in the world. Besides, SKP900 manufacturer has got it back and is developing its car list.


SKP900 can read PIN code from many vehicles for programming while CK100 cannot. Therefore SKP900 is more user friendly than CK100.


SKP900 supports lifetime free update, no limitation on update times, while CK100 cannot be updated.


Although CK100 is not as powerful and professional as SKP900, it is much cheaper than SKP900. SKP900 costs $659 shipping from US Only 2 Days Delivery on OBD2TOOL, while CK100 costs $129.
