Possible to get Piwis 3 program work with Piwis interface tester 2

This answer for the question whether Piwis 3 diagnostic program can work with Piwis interface tester II

It may be an interesting subject, I’m sure there is some information about this out here.
The Piwis 2 interface is a lot more robust piece of equipment, compared to the cheesy and flimsy looking and feeling interface produced by Actia for Piwis 3.
Originally designed for the VW ODIS system,  the VAS 6154 VCI is quite the service needy piece. [Breaks easily] not a hard comparison to make.
Porsche went cheap on this VCI for Piwis 3. [my humble opinion, way below Porsche standard!]

There is a service from Poland and Ukraine [If I remember correctly] that can make the Samtec based Piwis 2 VCI,  to work with Piwis 3, unfortunately their charges are just as much and frankly cost prohibitive as the New Piwis 3 VCI.  2-3-4 thousand  dollars for these VCIs is simply not reasonable for small  operators. They will come down in price just like the Chinese VCIs did for all manufacturers as the markets get saturated and folks are not buying them as eagerly as in the beginning of the Piwis 3 phad.
They will get as much money as the market bares. [as much as people are willing to pay]

Your more pointed answers will not come in this tread Ibi.
This is CarsFan’s money making tread, he will not volunteer any information, but if U start your own tread, U may be more likely to find out stuff.

Regards, Albert.

Global Diagnostic System (GDS2)MDI (Multiple Diagnostic Interface)

The GM MDI is the Global Diagnostic tool for future vehicles starting with Global A vehicles. It’s a compact communication module that manages the transfer of data between a vehicle’s onboard ECU network with an auxiliary CAN bus.

The GM MDI was introduced in the fall of 2007 for Pass-Thru programming and offers faster programming speed using J2534. Depending on vehicle architecture, the MDI can communicate 20% to 70% faster than the Tech 2. It can be used to perform Pass-Thru programming on all vehicles built since 1996 and into the future. Please note that there are other J2534 VCIs (vehicle communication interface) that will perform MDI functions utilizing GDS2 software.

Servicing the next generation Global A vehicles requires the diagnostic software, GDS2 (Global Diagnostic System 2) running on a local PC device while the MDI is connected to the vehicle.

The MDI connects to the vehicle via the J1962 connector using a DLC cable. Connection between the MDI and the PC can be accomplished via standalone (USB) or through (CAT5, or Wireless) networks.

Should I buy GM MDI if I have Tech 2 already

I have a Tech 2 Scanner in hand, so is it necessary to buy a new GM MDI interface?

I am using Tech 2 off https://www.obd2tool.com/goods-1568-GM+Tech2+GM+Scanner+-CANdi++TIS+(Works+for+GMSAABOPELSUZUKIISUZUHolden).html

Here you go

The Future of the Tech 2
The Tech 2 remains an essential tool through at least the 2010 model year. The GM MDI will not support past models when its diagnostic capabilities are introduced. And, the Tech2 will continue to be needed to diagnose all vehicles fromprevious model years. Remote programming with the Tech 2 will continue to be supported for use on all 2007 and previous vehicles.Additional information will be supplied in future.

HOW WILL THE G-M MDI BE USED?
The new G-M MDI can be used only in the Pass-Thru method. This means you can use it as your programming tool, while your Tech 2/CANdi remains available for diagnostics and other duties.

This is exact paragraph from a sales pitch document for the MDI. I have issues with it, however:

The GM MDI will not support past models when its diagnostic capabilities are introduced.
I’m not sure what this means. The GM MDI WILL clearly support past model years with the tech2win applications. So I’m not sure what this statement actually means. The only thing I can think of is that GM will remove pass thru support at a later date, but since it’s all been cracked already, this shouldn’t matter.

The new G-M MDI can be used only in the Pass-Thru method. This means you can use it as your programming tool, while your Tech 2/CANdi remains available for diagnostics and other duties.
This statement implies that the pass thru method is a bad thing. Considering the tech2win application works perfectly with EVERY function on all GM vehicles as far back as 1996, I don’t understand what this is really saying. It implies that you can’t do diagnostic troubleshooting using pass-thru, when in fact you can.

As far as I can tell from my testing, this is a basic sales pitch in order to encourage people to keep the tech2 as well as purchase a MDI2 unit – both of which are incredibly expensive if purchased legitimately through GM.

In reality, you don’t need a tech2 and a MDI2. An MDI interface is more than enough especially on our older cars like the C5 corvette which GM will unlikely ever release further PCM upgrades for given the fact they were discontinued over 10 years ago.

MicroPod 2 can get full “dealer level” capability for all Chrysler (-2018)

This is for those looking for a decent tool works on and flashes all Chrysler vehicles the same level as dealer technician can.

Purpose: Want to have full “dealer level” capability for all Chrysler – Hemi / Cummins / body modules, Ecodiesel, Pentastar 3.6, everything Chrysler / Ram like we do on GM and Ford

Tools used: have Cardaq J2534 device, have used the J2534 program for flashing in the past as well as the J2534 Drewtech toolbox for some skim and vin updates

Issues: Have a few big name scan tools we are able to do a lot of functions but just always end up something we can’t do
For example: 2014 Ram 1500 air suspension, unable to perform the system recharge function for the air ride, although our tools have the bag fill, system test, etc, missing the one function and have to send it to dealer.

Budget: Not afraid of paying for the right stuff, but afraid of paying for less than i need or having issues.

My ideas of devices:

WiTech VCI Pod
WiTech Micropod II
DRB
DRB Emulator
CDA
StarScan

pre-2004 not worried about, generic scan tools work well enough for most things
2004-2012 – have good coverage but run into things not able to perform, for instance can do the Quick Learn on RFE transmissions but cannot do the DRIVE LEARN, Drewtech advises against reflashing modules with J2534 software as high failure rate,
2013-up this is where our coverage gets a lot more spotty  – have a lot of WIN modules we replace but have been able to program them with one of our aftermarket tools but only up to 2012, functions like VGT turbocharger relearn, NOX resets, etc

Examples of things had to send to dealer:
2014 Ram 1500 BCM replacement and reflash
2017 Ram 3500 WIN module replacement, push start
2014 Ram 1500 air suspension system recharge
2014 Durango hemi ecm replacement, unable to configure new ecm (probably could have with ecm unlock and hp or something but this was just to flash stock)

Tips and guides:

for 2017 and older:

you can use micropod clone+witech1 (online/offline).(witech activator can help with not registered error)

micropod tests on a 2015 vehicle:

http://cheapobd2tool.com/2019/01/03/2015-chrysler-200-fobik-all-keys-lost-done-by-micropod-2-clone/

you should use micropod 2 original/hq clone +witech2(online)

micropod tests on a 2018 vehicle:

http://cheapobd2scanner.com/2019/01/03/micropod-2-witechdrb3-tests-on-1997-2018-chrysler-dodge-jeep-fiat/

for vehicle configuration change:

you should have a Dealer Connect account.
for very specific operations:

you should have CDA 5.13/5.14 (for 2010 and older) and CDA 6 for 2011 and newer.

This is for your information.

Micropod 2 clone (item no. Sp271-c1) is the best

The best quality and cost-effective

Work as good as the original, including basic obd2 diagnostic tests and programming:

1) It can be used as diagnostic and programming tool by the dealerships. Replaces your StarMobile, StarScan, and wi-TECH POD,provides world-class diagnostic services to your customers.

2) A separate Tech Authority  Subscription is required to access to Module Re-Flash Programming, TSBs, wiring diagrams, and repair information.

How to get CANdi module to work

I think that is the perfect excuse for me to buy an LT4 equipped Corvette.

Here is what I found tonight.

OBD I only has 1 ground, so 12 pin adapter connects signal and chassis ground to the GM Tech 2 Scanner cable.

OBD II has chassis and signal ground and they are connected in the cars wiring.

How to get GM TECH2 CANdi module to work
