GM Tech2 clone from China details

I bought a GM Tech2 scan tool clone from China, arrived the other day, installed the TIS2000 software on an old Dell D610 laptop with Windows XP (as the seller said it would only work on XP system), and am now successfully using it on my 1999 9-3 Vert, sierra and g8. No issues at all getting security access or anything.
Tech2 Diagnostic Scanner for GM
So far I have run through the self tests, and connected to my Vert (which does not require Candi module although the tool does support Candi module) and all went well as expected. Was able to connect to laptop and TIS2000 via the serial connection and control the Tech2 scanner via the laptop. Also was able to marry all 4 door modules with my tech 2. FYI, Tech2 does not need software installation but need you install TIS2000 and the TIS2000 should be plugged to the laptop and should communicate with the Tech2.

Mine is from a Chinese shop named OBD2TOOL: The seller Daisy He is good at questions and would email me back in minutes. I have been playing the scanner in the past few days, and it has been flawless and other friends, except one, have no issues with theirs either. That friend got the unit from Ebay and cannot connect to a laptop. I think it all depends on the seller. I saw some Ebay units work too. It is luck of the draw really. Maybe I was lucky and got a good clone.

I have had an NEXIQ 125032 USB Link(Xtruck USB Link 125032) which I purchased from OBD2TOOL for around three weeks now and thought I would share my opinion about the product and the supplier with you.

Price and Ordering: Ordered this NEXIQ 125032 trucks and heavy duty scan tool diagnostic tool from OBD2TOOL website for US$290.00, with payment made thru PayPal. Reasonable price and easy payment.

Delivery timeline: Ordered early this month, delivered the next day, and arrived at my door 10 days later. The package was send from China by DHL. The shipping was pleasant but it made me upset as I could not locate my order although the supplier sent an email when order received, processed and shipped.

Package and use: The package arrived in good condition and included all the items it should have. In the past three weeks, I have used it for 8 times to diagnose 3 Volvo, 1 Hino, 2 Isuzu, and 2 SCANIA. It worded especially fast to troubleshoot Hino and SCANIA engine problems.

VW New Bora engine cannot start occasionally

Once I encountered a repair case that a VW New Bora engine cannot start occasionally, but the owner cannot solve the problem and came to me. This New Bora is only riding 800 KM, equipped with BWH engine and there is SAFE message on dashboard.

After connecting vehicle, uses VAS 5054A to diagnose, it read out there is fault code 16897 in engine system. the code means that the starting key error. And got start the prevention system fault code B104V31, which implies the key is not signal. And the other system is normal. According to the diagnostic results, I got the issues maybe caused by key or read coil fault; or prevention start system control unit has gone wrong; or circuit fault.

And then after have a check on circuit graph, it is all right. Check with the other key and the issues still there. It is little possible to have the same fault in the other key, so it might be something wrong with prevention start system control unit.

Troubleshoot: replacement of J285 in prevention start system control unit j362, and use VAS 5054A to direct the function of online matching and try key and troubleshoot finally.

Here I am having a special tip that press TARE button to reset dashboard after have J285 changed. If you have any problem with this engine cannot start occasionally, please leave your message here. I am looking forward to share with you.

Clear away this electrical connectors, unscrew mid-air traces and also undo the two bolts of the valve block towards shape. Ran this compressor for you to port mid-air line towards block, installed this line, in that case When i anticipated this valve towards tank would likely wide open but it wouldn’t. Earliest the two valve visiting this backed suspension wide open en your vehicle can be lifted from your backed. If your car can be increased adequate these valves shut and also both the top types lenient with boost your vehicle at the cab end. The best way with completing can be explained within the class guide.

Soon after questing your OBD II Scanner earliest ahead of completing this tank When i in that case anticipated this completing of the tank would likely in that case be the end measure but the tank valve wouldn’t wide open in the least! Put JLR Mangoose SDD cable tv towards car and also carry out numerous assessment to find out if this valve can be great if this goes fine.

An appealing statement When i made when measuring this strain considering the SDD is always that the thing is that this strain getting larger (apron 12-13 bar) if your compressor can be operating and also taking for a second time with a other strain with just about a single, a few club. Most of this time this tank hasn’t been connected in the least. Hence the strain people assess with the SDD could be the strain within the valve block rather than necessary this strain that is definitely within the tank.

By the end the thing is that identical strain busy seeing that ahead of,Car Diagnostic Tool likely a different speed mound for a second time. Bought numerous fittings today and some 6mm air flow line, however need to effortlessly find the strain gauges ahead of I will strain check mid-air totes yourself. That is definitely for future time frame. When i have already an unusual Tech2 reader and also my own old male is fairly envious plus needs a single although believe that it is very costly. The client looked proud of this hence When i in that case purchased a single from your identical look.
