This article is just sharing real experience when use GM Tech2. 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, 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 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.

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

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.
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 Professional Diagnostic Tool GM Tech 2 replace a new engine ECU for Opel Corsa C successfully!

How to install SD Connect C4 WiFi on Windows 10

Have good success with MB SD Connect C4 windows 10.

I’m running Win10 on a Dell XPS15 9550 laptop with Intel AC 8260 internal wireless card installed.

After days of investigation and testing, the most important thing to understand is this. The drivers for your wireless card MUST support AdHoc functionality. The Benz diagnostic tools are the secret sauce that makes this possible. This can be verified at the DOS command prompt. The command is: netsh wlan show drivers
This command will show “Yes” or “No” on the line for “Hosted Network Support”.
If this line says “No”, AdHoc will not work properly.

Although I’m running Win10, Intel has drivers for the 8260 wireless card for Win8 which will enable proper AdHoc functionally.

The trick is to download the driver first, prior to removing your existing wireless driver. Download the driver ONLY, not any driver file with additional driver management apps included in the downloaded file.

Now you can go into Device Manager and remove your existing wireless card AND check the box that removes all software associated with it. My Win8 driver download file was a .exe file. I double clicked on it and the Win8 driver for my Intel 8260 card was installed. Went to Device Manager, right clicked on my 8260 wireless card and selected Properties. Clicked on Advanced and was able to see several AdHoc related entries. These AdHoc entries were not visible using the Win10 drivers.

AdHoc can now be verified at the DOS command prompt. The command is:
netsh wlan show drivers
This command will show “Yes” on the line for “Hosted Network Support”.
If this line says “No”, AdHoc will not work properly

With AdHoc functionality confirmed, additional DOS commands can now be used to enable Road24h wireless connectivity. The procedures for the additional steps required are well documented in OBD2TOOL or GOOGLE.

This is what worked for me. Depending on your computer skills, your results may vary.

If you find my posting to be of help to you, Thanks and Rep would be most appreciated.

Happy motoring !

Mitchell OnDemand 5 quarter 2013 description of the catalogue

Mitchell On Demand 5 1983-current year Domestic & Import Model Coverage
Clear, Concise Illustrations & Diagrams
Time-saving TSBs, Recalls, & Technical Tips
Detailed, Accurate Repair Articles
Model-Specific Maintenance Schedules
Electronic Component Locator for all Models
Mitchell On Demand 5 OEM wiring diagrams tend to vary between manufacturers because there really isn’t an industry formatting standard. We completely redraw the majority of the OEM wiring diagram before they go into our database, meticulously verifying every detail. The end result is a consistent look and feel to every diagram in our products. And because they’re redrawn – not scanned – they take up much less space on a CD-ROM or DVD, allowing us to put more information on each disc. This increases your computer’s access speed because your CPU has smaller files to chase down.
Our customers said they want to swap discs as little as possible so they can spend more time repairing cars. To accomplish this, Mitchell uses the latest in compression technology, giving you all the data available to fix the vehicles in your shop on fewer CDs or, better yet, a single DVD for Domestic, and one for Import.
For example, our tables take up less space because the overwhelming majority are not scanned. A scanned table uses up to 68 times more space on a disc than our specially formatted tables. Taking up less space means we can include more model-specific information, giving you exactly what you need.

Modern methods and techniques employed to repair cars

18
As years pass by, every car undergoes its wear and tear condition after having run for some years.  Then it’s time for repairs and getting a car repaired is quite expensive. There is constantly new innovation and ways to repair products, that is why it is very important to get the right replacement for the parts of the car that have been damaged or disfigured.  Technology such as Professional Diagnostic Tools provide an alternative to traditional repairs, but vehicles need repairs either way.

This is where all the problems begin as most cars as well as their spare parts become redundant in a few years’ time. That is why cars are harder to repair nowadays.  Moreover, the automotive technician must be updated according to the demands of modern technologies and techniques, and in most auto repair centers the technicians have been forced to take up extra training to update their skills and capabilities in order to satisfy the modern needs, especially with vehicle diagnostic tools. Though there are efforts to introduce modern techniques and methods nowadays to make it possible to overcome the difficulty in fixing cars, there are still many apprehensions regarding the availability of getting the services in the entire auto repairs center.

Technology has rapidly improved, with the introduction and wide use of vehicle diagnostic tools by both motor repair shops as well as individuals. Vehicle diagnostic tools allow for users to easily access the point of damage and understand what part of the car needs repair.

Some of the modern methods and techniques employed to repair cars include:

Computerized Color matching techniques for painting is one of the methods used to get the paint to the exact color of the car that may have gone out of stock or is not manufactured any more. By using the Automotive diagnostic tools of photo-spectrometer, the color of the original paint is analyzed and then a matching color is obtained that flawlessly matches the original.

Dent Repair techniques is another new method used on cars to repair the dents that might occur due to accidents or hits.  Most mechanics face difficulty in fixing cars, with surfaces that are angular or curved in shape. But with the use of specialized tools and processes, it is possible to straighten out those dented surfaces in the car.

Straightening the car body-frame is another area where damages usually occur and is difficult to repair which explains why cars are harder to repair nowadays. With Autel MaxiSys Mini on the rise the body of the car gets damaged longitudinally and laterally. The inconsistency in its alignment is recognized by computerized methods and then alignment is done by a laser method to restore the shape.

When you purchase a NEXIQ USB-Link

 

When you purchase a NEXIQ USB Link you can rest assured that NEXIQ is working closely with each of the OEM’s to make certain that your purchase will be able to run operate all the OEM software and have the proper connector and communications with the truck.

Kind of like the Rolex, you don’t want to know what is inside the fake USB-Link from China. It might work, it may not work, and it may destroy the customers ECM. Hey, but you saved $50? We can guarantee that when you need new drivers for the next OEM software update that the China built NEXIQ USB Link will not work with the driver updates.

Nexiq’s next-generation NEXIQ 2 vehicle interface is designed to be five times faster than its predecessor and to support heavier bus loads on simultaneous channels. A Bluetooth module with an enhanced data rate has been added to support wireless vehicle-to-PC communication, while the USB connector now is built with a more robust automotive-grade connector and a latching mechanism for increased reliability.

ATEQ VT55 OBDII software is compatible for all Asian and European vehicle brands that require OBD synchronization and its software is updateable by using a standard USB cable connected to a PC. Our very simple PC interface guides the user through a minimal number of steps. An upgradable TPMS tool has never been so important as new Tire Pressure Monitoring Sensors are being fitted to new car models at an increasing rate.

Does GM tech2 Support Coding?

The tech2 and CANDI module worked perfect to diagnose my bad HVAC air door actuator. I have an older HP laptop running win7 and it has a serial port so has no problem to install software. Time will tell how this works out.

The tech2 scanner clone has done everything I have used it for. I have check and cleared codes including freeze frame data. I used it to test injectors on my friends NOVA 5.3 swap. It allowed me to pulse each injector so we knew they were not clogged.

The tool arrived today. The one I order from www.obd2tool.com did not have the case and cost €295.00 with DHL shipment. Below is the package I received. Does GM tech2 Support Coding? Yes, it does, but you need to buy an additional TIS2000, TIS2000 support cars programming until 2007 year.

GM trouble codes may be retrieved with or without a code scanner on pre-1993 GM vehicles, due to the type of OBD port connector of Vetronix GM Tech2 .This port has been changed in the later model vehicles, and Tech 2 Scanner is necessary to retrieve the codes. Once the codes have been retrieved, the accompanying site will have a list of the codes and their meaning. To erase the codes and turn the check engine light out.

Utilizing OBD-II Scanner Technology

images

You’re driving along the interstate or in bumper-to-bumper traffic. All of a sudden, your car emits an alarming noise and a little orange or yellow silhouette of a submarine pops up in the gauge cluster. Maybe the glowing icon appears and goes away and you never give it a second thought. Perhaps it comes on and then stays illuminated, even after you stop and restart your car. Or maybe it starts flashing. Spoiler alert: If the light is flashing you will want to pull over and stop the engine as soon as it is safely possible, your beloved transportation is warning you that enough is enough.

The majority of home mechanics may already have a trusty obd2 scan tool sitting on a shelf or in a vehicle glove box, but for the rest of us it is important to know exactly which kind of scan tool to purchase. Just as important is whether or not we need to purchase one at all. While this article is in no way meant to be an exhaustive discussion of today’s readily available OBD-II readers, my hope is to give you some basic information that will help you decide if you should invest in a scanner, as well as what type of scanner will best fit your needs.

Of course very few people keep the same car forever, and even if you do it is wise to buy a tool that can be used on more than one vehicle and easily upgraded in the future. If you find that your current ride only needs an inexpensive basic scan tool, you might want to buy a relatively cheap unit and retire the scanner with the vehicle when you sell it or trade it in. On the other hand, if you are making a sizeable purchase to cover all of your vehicle’s systems, the ability to upgrade will enhance the scan tool’s value well into the future.

While I have found the Internet (particularly Google searches) with the presented code or codes alongside the vehicle’s year, make, and model to be invaluable in diagnosing repairs, many of the better scan tools will provide the trouble code and a description of the code right on the scan tool’s screen. Some will even use vehicle-specific information to report which parts need to be replaced, adjusted or corrected to remedy the problem. While I think you can live without the extra information if you are handy searching online, having it all in one place is efficient and worth considering when making a purchase of Auto Scanner Tools.

Recently, a new wireless Bluetooth obd ii scanner that works with a smartphone or tablet has been introduced to the market. It changes the OBD-II rules, making complex code scanning and real-time vehicle information readily available even for those on a shoe string budget. The small Bluetooth-enabled harness plugs into OBD-II port and syncs up to your smartphone or tablet in a matter of seconds, allowing for easy vehicle scanning, an assessment of systems that are currently running and much more. The system also stores codes on your device’s internal memory and keeps extensive logs for future reference.
