Is it OK to get a clone GM Tech2 from Obd2tool.com? Work as a real Tech 2?
I hope this review can help someone with the same puzzles as me.
Here, i wanna firstshare what i found about the genuine and clone Tech2 with you all…
Left -clone; right -real
Read info there and talked to the customer service staff… Decided to take a risk.. YES! I ordered it there.
So far, i have used it for a few data. The cheap one still works great. I don’t know how the genuine works but i am satisfied with the clone one.
My friend who has ever used a GM Tech2, says the clone’s screen is much brighter and buttons feel kind of different- buttons on the original have a distinct “click” feel to them while the clones are mushy
The only thing I’m disappointed by that I didn’t get the case. The other forum member stated that the price would be much more if you got the case. I wish I had done some more research because I found several sellers selling the same thing with the case for around the same price. However, I did feel more comfortable buying that from the same source as the other member.
It will work on any GM OBD2, meaning 1996+; now it’s updated to 2013.
Under the 2012 models it lists Chevrolet, Cadillac and Holden
I have used the tech 2 scanner to reset IMMO for my OPEL Corsa-C 2005
Plug GM Tech2 cable into OPEL Corsa-C socket;
Boot up GM Tech2 diagnostic tool;
Enter into Main Menu;
Click Diagnostics to select car model and year;
Click Body >> Immobilizer >> Partnumber >> Additional Functions >> Reset Immobilizer, next you need to enter security code.
Operate according to the tips, until it appears message reading “Reset Immobilize. Reset completed successfully!” It is Okay.
