What’s Tech2 TIS2000 hardwaresecurity key used for

I have a question about the gm tech2 hardware/security key. What exactly is the purpose of it? I don’t have one, and was wondering if I can still use the TIS software without it.

Reply:

There are three versions of the hardware key:

the original green parallel port key,

the newer white Rainbow Technologies parallel port key

and now the USB key also made by Rainbow Technologies.

Normally the Car Scanner GM SPS software (TIS2000) as supplied by GM requires a hardware key for its SPS functions.

However most GM dealers now use a web based SPS system that links directly to GM’s database via a password protected secure GM website which do not a hardware key.

Some dealers still use a standalone SPS terminal which does require a key.

Without this key the software and its programming system is inoperative unless you have a hack for it.

All other functions of the TIS program will work without the key, if you have full blown TIS package it will include software that can download and playback data recordings done with the tech2 scanner for sale, it will also update a TECH2 with the latest software from GM.

What can I do with a GM Tech2 on Chevrolet C5

This is a write-up for those with a GM Tech 2 Scan Tool on Chevrolet C5

Tech 2 scanner 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 Chevrolet C5 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 Professional Diagnostic Tool 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 menus 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.

GM Tech2, the bi-directional scan tool can access all the 10 computers in the c5 corvette. That means it can scan for DTC codes, allow the adding or removing of most accessory codes like turning off the mag ride shocks to install regular schocks, fixing window regulator problems, etc. For Bi-directional it can active the ABS system to flush the brake fluid, reset the Long Term Fuel Trims, eliminate the 1-4 shift on manual trans, etc. It cannot make changes (like a tune tool) to the transmission or engine management system. For the avid DIY’er it is a great tool.
In the C5, the “computers” (technically they are modules) and they communicate over the OBDII compatible DLC data bus to each other. The range from you radio to your ride control, to your HVAC system. Even the Bose head unit talks to the PCM and BCM through this bus, but the CD changer talks over a “private” data bus to the head unit.

The Sensor Modules that can be pulled up from the DIC are:
PCM, BCM, TCS, RTD, IPC, HVAC, LDCM, RDCM, SCM, RFA, and SDM.
Only those C5’s with RPO F45 or F55 will have RTD.

Reference: Here is a very useful OBD2 Scanner TECH2 pathing document that you can use to figure out how to get to the end result that you need to test.

Control Module Stand-Alone Programming Adapter (J-45211) for Cadillacs

9-1

The J-45211 control module stand-alone programming adapter (Figure VIIC-41), also called the PCM programming adapter harness, is used to connect the Tech 2 to a vehicle’s PCM and perform SPS functions for the 2000 or later Cadillac models DeVille, Seville, and Eldorado. The J-45211 isolates the PCM from a vehicle’s electrical system so that the activity of other on-board computers cannot interrupt the communication between the Tech 2 and the PCM.

NOTICE: Failure to maintain unbroken J-45211 connections (PCM, Tech 2, power, and ground) throughout the entire programming procedure may cause an interruption, resulting in PERMANENT PCM DAMAGE

Procedure for Using the J-45211 Tool:
1.  Ensure that the Techline terminal and the GM Tech2 Scanner are updated with their latest respective software.
2.  Turn the vehicle ignition off and remove the key from the ignition lock cylinder. Turn off all electrical power consumers and accessories.
3.  Open the hood and measure the battery voltage directly at the battery positive and negative terminals using the J-39200 digital multimeter. If the negative battery terminal is inaccessible, or the battery is notlocated under the hood, check the voltage between engine block ground and the underhood “+” junction block.
4.  If the vehicle’s battery voltage is not 12.0 volts or higher, charge the battery before continuing. When finished charging the battery, disconnect the charger from the battery before programming the PCM.
5. Locate the PCM and disconnect the vehicle harness connectors from the PCM.
6. Connect the J-45211 harness connectors to the PCM.
7. Connect the J-45211 power clips directly to the vehicle battery terminals. If the battery terminals are inaccessible, or the battery is not located under the hood, then connect to the engine block(ground), and to the underhood source of vehicle battery’s positive 12-volt power.
8. Observe the red battery LED on the J-45211. The red LED should remain lit whenever the J-45211 is connected to the battery voltage. If the red LED does not illuminate, check the tool’s five-amp fuse. If the fuse is good and yet the red LED will not illuminate,for assistance.
9. Toggle the power switch on J-45211 to apply ignition voltage to the Auto Scanner Tool.
10. The yellow and green LEDs should illuminate when the power switch is toggled on. The yellow LED monitors the ignition voltage being applied to the control module. The green LEDs are a feedback signal from the control module indicating that the modules’s internal circuits are operating.
11. Connect the Tech 2 to the J-45211 and enter Service Programming System.
12. Select and perform Request Information.
13. After the Tech 2 has completed the information request, toggle the J-45211 switch off.
14. Turn off the Tech 2 and disconnect it from the J-45211.
15. Connect the Tech 2 to the Techline terminal. Download the new PCM calibration into the Tech 2 using the Techline terminal and TIS software. After the download into the Tech 2 from Obd2tool.com is complete, disconnect the Tech 2 from the Techline terminal.
16. Reconnect Tech 2 to J-45211 and toggle the tool’s power switch on.
17. Enter Service Programming System, and select and perform Program.
18. After programming is complete, toggle the J-45211 switch off, and wait until the green LEDs turn off before continuing or disconnecting any connectors.
19. Turn off the Tech 2 and disconnect it from the J-45211.
20. Disconnect the J-45211 from the PCM.
21. Disconnect the power clips from the vehicle battery terminals.
22. Reconnect the vehicle harness connectors to the PCM and reinstall PCM.
23. Connect the Tech 2 to the DLC connector under the instrument panel, and start the engine.
24. Turn the Tech 2 on, “build” the vehicle, and select Diagnostic Circuit Check, then Clear All DTCs.

Note:This will clear all DTCs in all control modules simultaneously.

25. If the Service Engine Soon light comes back on after clearing  DTCs, another problem may be present or a CKP System Variation Learn Procedure may need to be performed. Follow existing service manual procedures.
