I located a answer to resolve it by editing the lic. file – so that just vag “basic” merchandise are valid/active…. but you have got to provide this file to the installer in the course of the procedure, just swapping inside the offboard folder hasn’t solved my issue…

And after that, obviously there’s no full activation and not all brands but it appears you could run odis four.3.3 using the “basic vag brands” and with this installer plus the existing postsetups

Hopefully, guss could resolve this “problem” for us, to ensure that we’re totally activated with all the brands then

Cars & Computers The History of Diagnostic Tools

One common factor to be found in every decade’s ideal future is a sense of comfort and reassurance, and in this regard car diagnostic tools could not be more modern. For example, each successive generation of products and software from Launch Tech not only allows for more extensive diagnostics of a vehicle’s performance; they also make the task more effortless and less time consuming as you go through the various generation models.
car start problems

But exactly how far has this technology come in the last few decades? In this entry of the Launch Tech UK blog, we’ll go from creation to current day with this history of diagnostic tools:

As a brief description, an car diagnostic is an electronic device that can be used to diagnose, interface and even partially reprogram a vehicle’s control module. Scanners in particular perform the same functions as a diagnostic code reader, except they also give the user additional diagnostic information, and can perform functional tests on the vehicle. They’re designed to function in tandem with your car’s on-board computer system, which itself monitors engine emissions controls and systems whilst your car is in use. The first generation of On-board diagnostic (OBD) tools were developed in the 1980’s, originally as an expensive diagnostic option only really available for professional mechanics.

Throughout the decade, automotive scanners were produced in the United States, using various cables and adaptors that would be compatible with certain car models, makes and their respective years. The first commercially available code readers hit car part stores in and around 1989, but it was only in 1996 that the automotive industry lost their exclusive ability over vehicle on-board diagnostic systems, with further standardization of the technology caused by stricter federal regulations.

The presence of two generations of on-board diagnostic systems, OBD-I and OBD-II, are intrinsically linked to this change in regulations, and a combined effort to clean up our air. The “gas attack” in Los Angeles during the summer of 1943, as well as the proliferation of lethal smog in London in 1952 were two environmental episodes that turned the business culture of voluntary emissions regulations into one of national requirement. The autel scanner in use at the time served fine in letting drivers know if their vehicle had a malfunction, but from an emissions point of view there were some serious flaws, to the point where your vehicle could be spitting out raw unburned fuel out of its tailpipe and neither you nor the computer would have any idea! This lead to the creation and required implementation of auto key programmer; the same technology monitored and read by today’s Launch OEM level diagnostic tools and aftermarket products.

Speaking of, the Launch Tech Co LTD itself was founded in 1992, developing their first generation of LE100 scanners two years later. Now global leaders in the automotive diagnostics market with a range that includes the C Reader VI, CRP123 and the CRP129, the Launch parent company has 13 branches in and amongst Europe, North America, Central and South America, Africa, Middle East, China and Asia Pacific, and has supplied to the UK market since 2003.

GM Tech2 for ALL systems – HP Tuners only for ECM & TCM

What is GM Tech2:
The GM Tech2 Scanner, working with TIS2000 software, supports onboard diagnostics and full bi-directional control when performing powertrain, chassis and body diagnostics for GM/SAAB/OPEL/SUZUKI/ISUZU/Holden.


What is HP Tuners:
The HP Tuners vcm suite is the most feature rich, powerful and comprehensive vcm/PCM reprogramming and diagnostics package available on the market today. Vcm suite is the ultimate tuning tool designed for basic Tuners to advanced tuning shops.


GM Tech 2 vs. HP Tuners:
HPT can only work with ECM and TCM
Tech II can work with ABS, BCM, etc. (all systems)
But, Tech 2 can only change/do stuff GM intended where HPT can change all kinds of tables GM wouldn’t want us messing with
So both have pluses/minuses depending on what you want to do

Tech 2 scan tool:
confirmed to works good for ALL systems

I just checked my OBD2 scan tool Tech II clone against my 2006 C6. In the ABS section there is an “Automated Bleed” option. In the Radiosection there is a “VIN Relearn” option. I’ve never actually used either one, but I bet it works.
The Tech II clone is literally running the same software as the GM Tech 2 Scanner, so it has all the same functions. There are a few caveats: the standard clone power supply will cause the unit to reset if you run the starter motor, apparently, though this can be fixed. Also, operating while tethered to a PC involves a bunch of licensing hacks and other nonsense. But you only need to do that if you want to flash the ECU firmware.
The Tech II lets you see (and individually reset) all the DTCs from all the modules. It also has a bunch of special functions and bidirectional capabilities.
It’s great as a standalone diagnostics tool but it isn’t intended to modify ECU parameters like tuning software does. This is a tool for fixing the car, not modifying it.

same problem as recording images to the memory card via the Tech 2 and TIS

Hello everyone. A few days ago saw that often face the same problem as recording images to the memory card via the Tech2 Scan Tool and TIS.

Initially I thought this is a typical problem with MAX232, only a little deeper, I saw that the Tech 2 is well connected with TIS, but attempts to write through it, memory cards, success did not. Having started to study the problem, I found the following that through the card reader in your laptop works, and through TIS not. And that’s what this difference is expressed: the fact that the card reader work with cards with 3.3 Volts and 5.0 Volts. And that is what is written in the instructions to the Tech 2, the photo shows.
In the end, I checked everything with me in the presence of a memory card, here is their photo:

As a conclusion, until I found how to solve this problem, it is best card to rewrite only through the card reader in the laptop. Another way to try to lower the voltage in the Obd2 scan tool Tech 2 so that it more accurately worked with credit cards, there is a successful experiment, but there are very few tests that were carried out and what it may cause, or to try to slightly modify these memory cards.
Just want to try another experiment, but I still havent for it is only necessary, as only something I can do, or find a better solution will be described later.

Card No1


Card No2


Card No3


I can’t promise anything, but maybe will write the other day a couple of videos like this Car Scanner Tech 2 works.
