GM Tech 2 software card

Hello to everyone. Today I want to talk about Tech 2 memory card. I don’t fully understand how to test. In fact, not often but sometimes get a bad card, visually for him not to say anything, even putting them in the Tech 2 they will be loaded. But on some menu Tech 2 Scanner will just restart. I have it booted from the menu on the device, specifically in the Hardware version. With 99% probability he would hang in the engine block Engine Data 1…3. Not always, but sometimes he wrote ADDRESS ERROR – PROCESSOR HALT. Later I bought another card, it didn’t hang, then I copied the software to both had the same version, eventually worked correctly only 1 card, or other periodically rebooted the device or just all hung, helped turn off – turn off the car diagnostic scanner Tech 2.

7-1 7-2

Here is a photo of my bad card may still try to solder, who knows things worse for it clearly will not. Yes, and to override the card is best to use any laptop or desktop computer with PCMCIA, as the Tech2 Scanner this is often time consuming, and pieces not entirely successful cases.

As I wrote GM Tech 2 software using a GM Tech 2 and TIS

Hello to everyone.

Today I will share my experience pack software using Tech 2 rs232 and TIS.

2-1

Some write that they cannot fully record your memory card through TIS.
And so I decided to try it, because yesterday I wrote them through the laptop, looking ahead would only say that a laptop is much more faster event, rather than via Tech 2 from Obd2tool.com. Yes and before you write need to remove the old soft.

As in my laptop with no DB9 I used the adapter. Also found a Bulletin in which there is an adapter, which recommends itself BOSH.

One photo from the series is not enough, I forgot to do, where the choice of what you want to write to the card, and what it is now.

So someone wrote that his Professional Diagnostic Tool Tech 2 does not see the GM card. If you are sure that you map all right, then I would recommend you to try to ReWire the element on the main Board under the number U32 he is the same as U33.

1st what you need to do on you GM tech 2

And so, you came to your device, and you hold it in your hands. First of all, after you have made sure that it is intact, no need to go write a review or to complete the transaction, depending on where you bought it. Unpack Tech2 Scan Tool , the first thing we need to insert it in the Tech 2 memory card, no matter what the slot. To find the power supply from the network, plug rs232, as in the photo below, and the cover on the main cable.

12-1

Now insert the plug GM 3000098 in the Tech 2 from Obd2tool.com , turn on the unit to the network and device connector is nearly blank. The first thing you will see is a POST test . Next to the menu and select tools options -> self test. Insert our rs232 plug and select Automaited test main board and VCI.

12-2
12-3
12-4

Here rs232 indicates that without our help, your GM Tech2 cannot communicate with the computer. Rs 485 nothing serious. But this is enough to Main PCB Self Test Fail. This isn’t a problem, because it is removed very simply, if errors are gone, and you still cannot connect to the computer, it is also just corrected. HBCC IGNORED’s OK too. But if mistakes will be much more, it is best to make sure you get the Tech 2 back, or you sent the new modules from him.

Next you need to test Candy , unfortunately I do not have a photo, but we havent nothing complicated, perhaps later I will make a short video like 5 minutes to test. Later I will try it’s clear to tell you how to resolve certain problems.

Tech 2 Custom Update Procedure

Gm Tech2 TIS2000 failed to run Win7 Virtual Machine

17-1

Problem:“I use a GM Tech2 Scanner diagnostic tool or a gm MDI to attach it to the truck, its on a cd / dvd, its a program i got on-line to reprogram GM BCMS in my truck. my problem is I can load 2007 software [its called ”TIS2000] into my computer [it only runs on a ”win xp” machine”][yes it won’t run in xp mode on a win7 machine],but I need the update to 3/2008 or 8/2008,to get it to see my vin#, so I can add power adj pedals[and some other options, I can’t get the 3/2008 to load. ”

Obd2tool.com Engineers Solution:
Depending on your computer hardware, you could install XP and your app in a Virtual Machine (VM) from Windows 7. Once installed and configured, you would boot your computer like normal and start XP in a window.

VMware makes Virtual Machine software called Workstation v10. They have a trial, but expect money at some point. The second best option for VM software is called VirtualBox from Sun. It is free!
You would just need a compatible computer, a copy of Windows XP and time to learn the ropes and get your XP Virtual Machine (VM) up and running. Learning how to use it is a one-time thing and at that point you’ll be familiar with VM software in general. That is a huge benefit to have as a computer user.

At that point you would meet the requirements of the car diagnostic scanner GM Tech 2 software and would install TIS2000 within the VM and use the virtual com/serial port to connect to your computer serial port (or USB).

How to Disable Alarm on Saab 9-3 by GM Tech2

Here’s my personal review on Tech2 Scan Tool clone diagnostic scanner with my Saab 2003 9-3. Big thanks to those who help me a lot in the thread.

Model:

Saab 2003 9-3

Saab 2004 9-5

Issue:

the dreaded “alarm randomly going off” issue on my 2003 9-3

Purpose:

to diagnose and/or disable the alarm

Considering the following:

GM Tech 2 scan tool Link here

I also have a 2004 9-5. I’m starting tho think that it would be wise to invest in a tech2. as I usually do most of my own repairs.

Puzzle:

Is there some other Saab-specific card or software I need on top of this product?

Suggestion from folks:

You will need the Tech 2 and Saab 32MB card (specify when buying clone) listed in the link above. Those two alone should be able to read DTCs, I believe. To get security access and make changes via Tech 2, you will need an older Windows?XP laptop with built in serial port – a newer computer running a virtual machine program & serial to usb adapter should also work – and the Tis2000/GlobalTIS software.

Personal opinion: The Tech 2 at obd2tool.com in the link you posted is priced a bit higher than most ($349 vs $319). You might want to read back a few pages in this thread for some links to other sellers with better pricing and more sales.

My Tech 2 Scanner hq clone is paid for $319. It is with with a 32MB card and TIS2000 software CD.

Eidt: Tech II review:

Received the parcel today. All are packed well in a box and the machine looks good…. I will try it tomorrow and update here… I should be working good i think.
