Customer real experience with GM Tech 2 Scanner (Review)

23-1

Here is the my real experience on gm tech 2 Scanner from obd2tool.com

Bought the highest quality version as i didn’t want to risk any issues with the device, and it all works fine and i do not regret my purchase.

It arrived pretty fast, but i got a £17 customs charge which i didn’t realise i’d get.

First impression: the carry case is not the one shown in the photo’s, which is annoying as the one in the photo’s looks really good, With the cables and candi module stored underneath 2 flaps, the main unit and adaptors clipping in the top of the case etc.

What i got was a basic plastic case (with sharp metal catches) where everything is squashed in on one level in foam, it does the job i guess, but i’d really have prefered the better case i thought i was paying the extra £30 for.

I’d bought a genuine Ugreen rs232 to usb cable in advance, £10 off amazon, this is one of the few cables listed as working with the tech2, and it did, connects at highest speed with no issues at all.

The house power supply has an american plug on it (psu has a universal voltage of 100 to 250 volts)
i got worried when the tech ii scanner wouldn’t even turn on, then i noticed the plug had slightly pulled out of the adaptor i had to use, something we are not used to in england as our plugs fit the sockets very securely and are hard to accidentally pull out, so changing the plug is one of the first things to do…
The house psu runs pretty warm btw.

I did all the self tests and it passed them all with flying colours (except the usual HBCC test that gets ignored (used on some ford vehicles i believe) and the RS485 that has no loopback adaptor so will always fail)

I took it out to my car (a 2011 vauxhall meriva B) and plugged it in, it connected straight away and i asked it to give me a list of DTC’s, i had been using an op-com before i got the Tech2 and the tech2 listed some old DTC’s the op-com had never picked up, I cleared the DTC’s, then tried the rest of the diagnostics available, i had no problems so far, i was able to move engine actuators (op-com can’t do that on the meriva B) operate things remotely, saw the DPF was at 108% full, so went for a little drive and the tech2 showed the DPF regen in progress, got an exhaust temp of 650 degrees C during it)

However that test drive showed up the universal weakness of the clone tech2’s, the internal power supply cuts out when you start the engine so the tech2 re-boots, this means there are a few diagnostic tests you can never do that involve starting the engine whilst the tech2 monitors things (unless you use external power to the tech2, which is advised against in all service manuals)

There is a solution, replace the internal power supply module with a better quality unit!!

There is also a highly recommended modification of removing the RS232 chip and putting a usb module in it’s place so you have a direct USB connection to the tech2, rather than the 4 connections that are just begging to be caught and pulled apart whilst uploading software to the car.
These mods are on the tech2 wiki (google it)

I then tried to SPS to my car to add a new IPC… one of the reasons i bought the Tech2.

That’s when discovered my car is not in the list of cars you use the tech2 to service program directly (the: connect tech2 to car, download data, take tech2 to computer, upload data, download software update, take tech2 back to car and upload the software method)

But i figured i could SPS using the tech2 in the J2534 pass thru mode… only my computer couldn’t connect to the tech2 in that mode… remote view of the unit worked but not SPS… i figured the issue out tho…
The rs232 to usb adapter had been assigned to com port 7 when i plugged it in, i changed the com port to COM1
~windows / computer / device manager / ports (COM & LPT) and find the relevant port your rs232 adapter is on (it wont be listed as ‘Tech2’) and change it to port 1~

Now SPS in pass thru mode works perfectly, i updated the software in a few of the modules (i use GlobalTis 32b, the last offline version with full SPS capability, was released in 2012 i believe, and it had newer software than my 2011 car had in it)

Then i did an update of the BCM and IPC to allow the rain sensor i’d just wired in to be seen by the systems, I tried to add a new immobilizer key, but it refused the accept the new key, most likely the key is at fault.. as part of learning new keys is to delete the old ones from the system, and the tech2 added them back no problem.

I’ve also used the tech2 to connect to ford vehicles using some software called ‘ForScan’ it has the Tech2 listed as a J2534 pass thru devise and works fine with it, The pcmcia card that came with the Tech2 allowed it’s self to be re-written (some people buying from other places find the card is locked and can’t be re-written)
i used GlobalTis’s card writer feature, it takes 40 minutes to write the card, but it works fine.

I’m very pleased with my Tech2 so far, the only thing that would make it perfect would be the carry case that’s shown in the photo’s, but that dosent affect how the actual devise works.

I’d recommend anyone buy their gm tech 2 scan tool from this shop, and i have pointed a few people who were interested in buying one here.

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.

8-1

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.

8-2

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.

4-1
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:

4-2
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.

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.

GM Tech2 clone program ECU with SPS in TIS2000

Here is the step-by-step instruction on programming GM (General Motors) ECUs with Tech2 scanner and SPS (Service Programming System) application in TIS2000.

NOTE:

Before using the SPS, make sure that the GM Tech 2 Scan Tool and the pc contain the latest software, the battery of the vehicle is fully charged, only the ignition is on power,
and all cables are connected properly. TIS2000 will not work on 2007 up GM, and software must work together with TIS2000 USB key. If you need to program Saab ECU,
you had to use Saab TIS2000 and USB dongle.

Main steps:

Step 1: Instruction for TIS2000 software

Step 2: Data request

Step 3: Data exchange

Step 4: Program ECU

Alternative Programming with “Pass Thru”

Check Programming result

Step 1: Instruction for TIS2000 software

1.Connect the Tech II to the pc.

Note: The hardware key (HWK) has to be registered prior to working with ‘Service Programming System’. To register a hardware key, the form that is enclosed with
the hardware key kit has to be filled in and sent to the address at the top. In case the form is missing, the document is also in the TIS 2000 newsletter (see icon in the
TIS 2000 tool bar). At first, the user receives a temporary code until the key is registered on the next TIS 2000 CD.

Hardware keys that have already been registered are still valid!

To register the hardware key select ‘Hardware Key Registration’ in the menu ‘Configuration’.

TIS2000 installation video guide

2.Start TIS 2000 on the pc.

3.Select the application ‘Service Programming System’ on the TIS 2000 start page.

9-1

4. On ‘Select Diagnostic Tool and Programming Process’ (picture below) screen make the desired selection for

1) the used Tech2 diagnostic tool

2) the reprogramming of an ECU that was not exchanged or the replacement/programming of a new ECU

3) the ECU location.

9-1

5.Click “Next” button to continue.

Step 2: Data Request

1) Connect Tech 2 scanner to vehicle. Power on device – “Tech 2” is displayed on the screen, then press “ENTER”.

2) Turn ignition to ON without start the engine!!!

3) Select “F1: Service Programming System (SPS)” in the main menu.

4) Press “F0: Request Info” on Tech 2.

5) If Tech 2 has already stored vehicle data they will be displayed now. In that case, Tech 2 asks you to either use the current data (hold data) or request further information from the ECU (continue).

6) For the selection of “Next” the vehicle has to be identified as requested by OBD II Scanner Tech 2.

Note: Depending on the model year and the selected model either a reprogramming of the ECU (F0: Engine) or of the TCM (F1: Transmission) can be selected.

7) During the Request Info the Tech 2 receives information from the selected device. If the ECU was replaced a “Request Info” has to be performed for the NEW unit. Since the new ECU is not programmed on delivery, the retrieved information is not complete. For that reason, TIS 2000 gives instructions as how to enter the missing vehicle data.

8) Follow the instructions on the Tech 2. Then press “Exit” on the Tech 2, switch it off and disconnect it from the vehicle.

Step 3: Data exchange

1.Connect Tech 2 to the pc, switch it on, and click on ‘Next’ on the pc.
2.Confirm VIN or, if necessary, enter correct VIN, then select ‘Next
3.Validate vehicle data and, if necessary, change with the pull-down menus
4. 9-2
5.Click on ‘Next’. Button
6. 9-2
7.A new window displays a “Summary” (follow below) with the selected data. Continue with ‘Next’. Select “Reprog” button to download the latest calibration data onto the TechII diagnostic tool.

Note: It is not possible to reprogram an ECU with the same software version.

1.The window ‘Transfer Data’ is displayed. A bar shows the progress of the download.
2.At the end of the download, a window is displayed with the request to connect the Tech 2 to the vehicle in order to finish the programming process.
3.After the closing of the SPS application the TIS 2000 start screen is again displayed. Finally, switch off the Tech 2 and disconnect it from the pc.

Step 4: Program ECU

1.Connect Tech 2 to the vehicle.
2.Switch on Tech 2 – start screen appears.
3.Turn ignition (Do not start motor!).
4.Press “Enter” in the Tech 2 start screen.
5.Select “F1: Service Programming System” in the main menu and then “F1: Program ECU”.
6.Follow the instructions on the Tech 2 screen.
7.During the download the Tech 2 screen shows the message “Programming in Progress”.
8.At the end of the download the Tech 2 shows the message “Programming was successful”. The button “Exit” leaves the program. First, turn off the ignition of the vehicle, then switch off the Tech 2 and disconnect it from the vehicle.
9.Turn off ignition for 30 seconds before starting the motor. Additional information is available in the section “Check programming”.

Alternative Programming with “Pass Thru”

In addition to the procedure described above, there is an alternative programming mode called “Pass Thru”. In that case, the data are directly downloaded from the pc to the ECU in the vehicle.

Although the Tech 2 is still needed in that mode, the data entry and the download control is done directly at the pc. Altogether, that method is faster, and it is recommended when a pc with TIS 2000 is within 3m of the vehicle.

1.Connect Tech 2 to the vehicle.
2.Connect Tech 2 to the PC switch on Tech 2.
3.Start TIS 2000 on the PC.
4.Select the icon ‘Service Programming System’ (Fig. 1) on the TIS 2000 start page.
5.Start TIS 2000 on the PC.
6.On the screen ‘Select Diagnostic Tool and Programming Process’ (See picture below) make a selection for

***Pass-Thru mode

***the reprogramming of an ECU that was not exchanged or the replacement/programming of a new ECU

***the ECU location.

Then clock ‘Next’ button.
