Use Tech2 scan tool to unlock an auto radio

I have successfully unlocked the radio on my Chevy TrailBlazer with a GM Tech 2 scanner clone from China yesterday. Here I would like to share the procedure.

If you also like to unlock the radio, please complete the following procedure, using the Tech 2 scanner, in order to properly set up communication:

Connect GM Tech 2 to the OBD port of the vehicle. When the screen of the tool illuminates, it means the tool hooks up with the car. Then you can start the process:

Go to the main menu and select: Diagnostics.

Select Vehicle Identification and then the following options:

– Model Year

– LD Trk, MPV, Incomplete

At the System Selection Menu screen, select: Body

At the Vehicle Identification screen, select the following:

– Appropriate model

– Appropriate Air Conditioning

– Navigation Radio

Select: Navigation Radio.

Select: Special Functions.

Select: VIN Relearn.

Then you will get a message: “Do you want to clear radio theft information?”

To begin clearing, press the soft touch key on the top right of the scan tool. The scan tool will display “Clearing Radio Theft in Progress.”

Press EXIT on the scan tool and cycle the ignition.

Disconnect the OBD-II scan tool Tech2 scanner from the car when finished.

Solution to Ford VCM2 freezing up when opting parameters

Question: I am able to use Ford VCM II to read and clear any dtcs etc so it is recognizing vehicle, just freezing up when opting parameters ? I am working on Ford 2014 custom.

I have vcm2 clone.

Solution-to-Ford-VCM2-freezing-up-when-opting-parameters

I’ve had similar before but was on my faulty vcm i think. Freezing is usually because of something which can’t communicate quick enough and ends up timing out.

You could reset the vcm via the red reset button, it’ll force ids to reload the firmware to the vcm which will be whatever firmware you have in the ids that is loaded, v101 I think you said.

You do have the vcm2 clone yes.

Remove the rubber end boot to reveal the button then have that pressed and held then plug usb lead into laptop and wait for beep then let go of the button, ids should prompt you to load the firmware so agree.

Next if the problem persists you need to look at reloading the laptop.

It is possible that the vcm is going though does it show the red padlock and red vcm icon on the task bar or does the lock disappear? Does the vcm show computer light flashing? Do you hear bing bong like it is missing connection?

Can you do a fresh install of w7 and v86 with license? That is the best ids for euro 4 transits if that is what you are working on?

Right it’s not as simple as running native v86 then which was going to be my suggestion.

I have v96 running and it works on my 65 custom.

I don’t want to write your vcm off but the only things you can do is.
Change cables.
Reset vcm.
Change software on laptop.
Change laptop completely.
There maybe vcm diagnostics available in ids but as it is a clone vcm i wouldn’t trust it.

What can I do with a Tech 2 scan tool

Answer for ” What can I do with a Tech 2 scan tool?”:

GM Tech 2 is a diagnostic tool for the most part. It can be used to program out/in certain RPO’s in the BCM and can be used to bleed the ABS brake system without introducing air into the system. The extent to which it can be used to tune a C5 corvette is that if you have a PCM Image that will work for your car you can save the current PCM Image and flash the new one you have onto the PCM. It cannot go in and individually change the tuning tables in the PCM as can say either EFI Live or HP Tuners tuning tools. But then those tools cannot touch the BCM either.

If you do or plan to do a lot of diagnostic work on your car it can be a worthwhile tool. Most of the diagnostic charts in the factory service manual assume the availability of a Tech 2. But you have to learn to use the tool like any other computerized diagnostic tool. It has layers and layers of menues to wade through. But in certain diagnostic situations it can be an invaluable tool because it allows you to turn on and off hundreds of computerized settings to aid in the diagnosis process.

GM intentionally dumbed down the capabilities of the Tech 2 to change things to avoid law suits due to an errant technician that changed engine or emissions settings that could result in engine damage or emissions violations.

Good to know: There are many factories working for Tech 2 production, including the genuine from the dealership and the clone by Chinese.

If you are just looking for a decent Tech 2 for use, a working china clone can be a good option. But you should make sure of the quality!

No driver for JLR mangoose Volvo Vida Toyota 3 in 1 scanner

VIDA Dice 2014D VM Image – Download Link

VIDA_header-01

First and foremost, we are a community that supports each other wilfully. Because of the help I’ve received here, I decided to return that to the whole community. I use a 4K display so you MIGHT need to change the resolution on first boot with your machine to adjust to size if you are not using a 4K equivalent. When logging in, use ‘admin’ or ‘1’. The only app you can use, and thankfully need to use is the ‘all-in-one’. The rest on the desktop are pointless. If you wish to check that your download completely without errors or issues, below is the MD5 hash. Enjoy! If you buy a device or VM with the newer look to it, please let me know. Several people out there are currently selling the VIDA VMs or laptops with VIDA preinstalled and are using all of my hard work for profit. My work is for people to download themselves, use for themselves. Not for someone to sell and make a profit on. VIDA isn’t mine but I made the newer interface and that is how you can tell if you are using my work. If you buy something with it on it, request your money back. You can get it here for free! I’m not trying to be a *****. If you want to sell a VM or laptop with VIDA, do so, but don’t include my work and sell it off as something newer or that you did. For all of those people that want VIDA installed on your existing system but have issues or just don’t want to attempt it, I’ve will install everything remotely for a flat 30$. You’ll need to have all the required files downloaded but I will let you know what files to grab when we are setting up the time to do it. If you want to have me test the DICE after install, you will need internet at your car. If you have any questions, feel free to ask here in the thread. It might answer a question someone else had too! Arrangement of scheduling can be done via PM, phone or email.
I’ve built a new ISO for those that want to directly install on their systems with the updates already applied. It also contains all the needed files for the install whether on 32bit or 64bit and all 3 patches for the different ways to install… (32bit, 64bit, 32bit installed on 64bit) (24 Nov, 2018)

Virtual Machine System Minimum Recommendations:
CPU: Intel i3-2100 or better (64bit required)
RAM: 6GB RAM
HARD DRIVE: 40GB free space

USB Editions System Minimum Recommendations:
CPU: Intel Core2Duo or better (32bit capable)
RAM: 3GB RAM
STORAGE DEVICE: 32GB or better USB 3.0 (Recommend SanDisk Extreme)
Legacy Boot Mode Support (UEFI won’t boot)

Patches, Documents & Walk-throughs can be downloaded from any of the download links below
Download Links:
Image Download – (Google Drive) – Download Here <– NEW LINK
VMWare Player – VMware Player
VirtualBox – VirtualBox Image Here
7-ZIP – You’ll need this

Virtual Machine Setup:
1. Download the virtual machine 7zip image
2. Download VMWare Player or VMWare Fusion. This will depend on which OS you have running.
3. If you have Windows but don’t have 7zip. Download it. I believe most Linux distros support 7z files out of the box or can be easily installed via the Software Centre. If you are on Mac OS, you can use ‘The Unarchiver’ available via the App Store.
4. Once you have everything downloaded, install your hypervisor of choice. This would be VMWare Player or Fusion. Advanced users can use virtual box with minor modifications I believe.
5. Extract the 7z image file you downloaded to a contained folder. The password is V0lv02Rule You can run it from this location or move it to another location. Doesn’t matter.
6. Locate the file ‘Service Machine.vmx’ and double click on this file. It will open your hypervisor. You may be asked if you copied or moved this. Just click moved.
7. If you want to adjust the VM image settings now if the time to do so. Things like number of cores dedicated to the VM and how much RAM you want it to be allowed to use.
8. Make sure you set the USB setting up to match your machine. If you plug the DICE into a USB 2.0 port it needs to be USB 2.0. If you use a USB 3.0 port, it needs to be set to USB 3.0
9. Run it and enjoy.

USB Image Setup: (For more advanced users)
1. Download the image from the builds folder
2. Download the USB Imaging Tool.zip file from the tools folder
3. If you have Windows but don’t have 7zip. Download it. I believe most Linux distros support 7z files out of the box or can be easily installed via the Software Centre. If you are on Mac OS, you can use ‘The Unarchiver’ available via the App Store.
4. Once you have everything downloaded, extract the USB Imaging Tool.
5. Run the tool. Select your USB drive from the list on the left. Click Restore. A window will open to locate the IMZ file. In the bottom right is a drop-down menu, change it to ‘Compressed (zip) image files’. Locate the folder where you downloaded to and select the IMZ file. Click yes to restore and overwrite the USB drive.
6. Run it and enjoy.

Volvo 2014D UX2 Update Volvo Vida Dice 2014D Wiring Diagram ISO Volvo Transmission Adaptation USB Image Install Process Questions & Answers:
Q: My system specs are… Which one should I run.
A: Which ever one you want, system specs are based on the one you choose to run. Virtual Machine is the easiest to get up and running and requires the least amount of effort from you.
Q: Are the system requirements actually what’s required to run?
A: Yes and No. For the virtual machine no. You could have less RAM and a slower processor and it will still run. For the USB images, yes without more modification of the images.
Q: Unable to open the file Service Machine.7z
A: Download 7-Zip from the link above AND make sure you have the password
Q: How do I log in?
A: Use ‘admin’ or ‘1’ and press enter
Q: How do I go about checked the MD5 or SHA256 to ensure I have downloaded without error?
A: I recommend Quickhash-GUI. If you have a Mac or run Linux, they both have md5sum built in but require CLI knowledge so I won’t recommend it.
Q: I have logged in, my DiCE unit is detected but I can’t click on diagnosis tab. Did I do something wrong?
A: Most likely, you have not selected all the options for the vehicle profile.
Q: Does the VMWare image support 32bit?
A: NO! But the USB edition does
Q: I’m on a Mac and can’t find VMWare Player for it, what do I use?
A: You’ll need to obtain a copy of VMWare Fusion
Q: Will there be a VirtualBox version?
A: It is very likely just to help out the Mac users…
Q: What are the system requirements?
A: System requirements are for the VMWare image is a 64bit dual-core processor and 4GB RAM. Please know that with 4GB of RAM, you will be moving SLOWLY. I recommend at least 6Gb RAM. If you only meet the minimum requirements, try the USB edition.
Q: I have 7-zip and it is giving me errors extracting the files. What is going on?
A: Double check that the download completed correctly. You can do this using the MD5 Hash posted above.
Q: Why doesn’t the VMware Image detect my DiCE unit?
A: The VMware Image may be configured for different USB specifications than the port you are trying to use. If you have a system with USB 3.x, you need to update the ‘Machine Settings’ to reflect a USB 3.x bus. Same with USB 2.0. Depending on the build of the VM depends on which USB port revision was set to. Drivers have already be install for the Intel buses.
Q: I’ve installed an update or patch but nothing happened?
A: Try rebooting, if that didn’t work, ask for help.
Q: I have a 32GB USB flash drive but it won’t fit. What do I do?
A: While in the USB Flash Tool, click on the options tab. Select the option to truncate the image.
