China GM TECH 2 does everything a real Tech 2 does, how?

10-06-2014 Update:

I just placed my order GM TECH2 which is the complete package with the 32 MB card from obd2tool.com

10-10-2014 Update:

It still hasn’t shipped according to their website. I contacted them asking why it hasn’t shipped yet. They are quick to respond, GM TECH2 is out of stock now and hope I would be patient to wait another 3 days, they will try their best to arrange. She even informed me that she declared a $69.00 value to help keep my customs fees low. Since uobdii.com own good reputation, then I choose wait.

10-13-2014 Update:

I received a notice from the vendor that my GM Tech2  Scan tool  item  has  finally  shipped….. today!!!  I  got  a  DHL track number.

10-20-2014 Update:

I received my Auto Scanner Tools Tech 2 today. It was a longer than expected shipping time but am quite happy with it so far. I have not yet used it and my first task will be to perform a CKP relearn. I’ll let you know how it goes in the following parts.

Here are some pics:

Package: I did receive the TIS2000 software disc. It was in the bag along with the product stickers. So yeah, I got the full package.

What GM Tech 2 does?

I just performed a CKP sensor relearn and it went perfectly. No problems reported. I also performed a complete diagnostic of my ABS including the motor and EBCM. No problems reported. I also went for a drive for some real time data logging. All looked good. It was amazing to note all of the misfires that were being reported prior to the CKP relearn process. No misfires after the procedure.

Well gentlemen, this unit appears to do everything a real Tech 2 does. It works perfectly so far. The general quality of the unit also appears to be quite good with a robust case and very bright and clear screen. I am very satisfied so far. I know that I haven’t even begun to scratch the surface of what it can do and I guess I will discover its various functions as time goes on. If anyone has any questions, please let me know.

What Windows Operation Tech2 is compatible?

I keep an old Windows XP laptop in the garage which has my service manuals for all my cars including the MB SD Connect C4/C5. At first I’m not sure what I can do with the TIS2000 software, then after I check find it’s working. Someone said VMWare works, and someone suggest Windows compatibility mode works sometimes. Try setting it for windows 7 compatibility and see if it works then, or try another mode like XP. I haven’t try this, and your options?

GM Tech2 Clone Diagnostic Scanner Feedback

I start this post for tech 2 scanner Clone Diagnostic Scanner from Obd2tool.com to put together the feedback of the users what’s working what’s not working?
……OK
– Used my GM tech2 to retrofit tcs and marry a non divorced cd changer.

http://forobd2tool.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/13/17-1.png

-It is a tech 2, reads everything a genuine one does. Heck, it’s probably made in the same factory as a genuine one with a different sticker on it. Used it to pinpoint bad air bag sensors, turned on the tpms on both our Z’s.

– It works exactly like any others I’ve used at gm dealers over the years

– $339 for a brand new tech2 with a CANDI module all the cables and adapters and case is great

-connected to my intimidator ss and everything was there

http://forobd2tool.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/13/17-2.jpg

– Change one of my c5s that is canadien to US to disable the auto headlights because they don’t always open when they should and when they do work right they come on too early.

– You have to specify GM English when you order the unit. There are a lot of other cards for different languages Saab, Holden, etc

– Is now fully functional for F body, C5 and C6, It cost me a lot more than the initial $1000 that I thought was a good deal.

– Plugin to my ’08 93 Aero and play around with the typical body and key features. My primary reason for picking up the Tech II was to program a spare key. I figured ~$500+ at a dealer or ~$400 on my own would be well worth it…obviously if I received a working, defect free, unit.

– Programming a key and changing some of the standard comfort features.

– Able to get security access using an old Dell laptop from my IT guy’s graveyard.

– Programming a new key was easily as 1-2-3

– Changed my key-unlock settings to all at first press, and then lock on drive off/open on key out was a snap.

– If you had a Tech2, you could possibly talk to the dealer and have them access their TIS system to load the BCM or PCM calibration to your Tech2. Some may do it.

If you can’t do that, just buy additional TIS2000 with USB key.

– Hooked it up to test engine, ABS, transmission etc, stored DTCs, Freeze Frame, live data all the test result were displayed on the large, easy –to-read backlit screen. It helped to carry out accurate and stable diagnostic function.

– Compared with GM MDI, Tech2 covers more vehicles including OPEL, GM, SAAB, and Isuzu.

–  used it on my GMC for air bag warning

–  Tried it on my 2006 Silverado & worked ok.

– The tis 2000 needs windows XP, Vista, win8.1, Win 7 32 bit.

– Able to easily and completely program out the TPMS system

– I have used mine to do two crank sensor re=learns and did the brake bleed on mine for the EBCM flush and it worked fine

– I am fairly certain it works on all GM cars til 2013. I have used it on my 03 GMC full size pickup, and my sisters 07 Trailblazer !!!! (and my 99 vette of course).

– If you have a 1997-2000, the TPMS is in the firmware and cannot be programmed. With the addition of the Z06 in 2001-2004, it can be programmed.

– Bleed the ABS ok.

– Used to cycle and bleed the ABS brakes on my C6 ok

– Plugged it in to my 2011 Z06, and activated the Afterblow feature. I also cleared some old DTC codes that were in history. It works just fine and the quality feels genuine. It’s a pretty good knock off. Even came with all of the stickers from the Veltronix manufacturer. I assume they are knock off too.

– Used it to program my key fobs for my malibu but also have 4 other chevys
……Fail

– GM tech2 would NOT work with All C5’s, if you are going to use it on a C6,, make SURE you have the CAN D modules.

– Cars only, no trucks, you are advise to use VXDIAG VCX NANO heavy duty.

In conclusion:
Tech2 GM clone will never let you down, all works fine.

2 GM categories of the radio security theft lock feature

I work for a Gm dealership and was a little skeptical at first about this GM Tech 2. After receiving very quick from seller I tested it out on every platform, programming, system scans, live plot, remote functions, everything and it has matched everything my shops factory 2000 dollar Tech 2 has done. Best money I’ve spent on a tool in a very long time! Follow i wil share my using experience with gm tech2.

GM Tech 2 scan tool can also work for Opel, SAAB, Isuzu, Suzuki, Holden. For some customers have confused about China GM Tech 2 scanner. Below OBD2TOOL sharing VETRONIX TECH 2 Clone GM Tech 2 scan tool China GM Tech 2 scanner Customers Reviews. I have been very happy with this scanner, the cables can be a bit finicky at times, and I had to remove and reinstall the memory card several times to get a good connection on it, but have had no issues at all other than that. I have used it on 2004 Pontiac Bonneville, Saab and Chevrolet Suburban all worked well.

Tech2 scanner tool support multi-function such as Capture stored DTCs, Freeze Frame, and Failure Record for later review,etc
There are 2 GM categories of the radio security theft lock feature.
1) The first category which was used on GM vehicles up until about 2001 or 2002 required the owner to choose a PIN and enter it into the radio to activate the radio security theft lock feature;
2)The second category which is used in newer Auto Scanner Tools GM Tech 2 has smart coding which is a scrambled portion of the vehicle VIN number.
Unlock radio code and VIN Relearn instruction
The only way to unlock the radio is by using the VIN Relearn procedure with a GM Tech2 scanner to set to module replacement setup.

USB-Link 2 is five times faster than its predecessor

The USB-Link 2, the next generation vehicle interface from www.obd2tool.com, has arrived. Dependable and rugged, the NEXIQ USB Link 2 is five times faster than its predecessor. It has sixteen times more random access memory than the old USB-Link, and it supports heavier bus loads on simultaneous channels.

The Heavy Duty Diagnostic Tools NEXIQ Technologies 124032 USB-Link 2 Connector allows PC-to-vehicle connection with an interface compatible with multiple software applications. It will minimize your investment in multiple brand-specific diagnostic interfaces so you can do more tasks with fewer tools.

NEXIQ Technologies 124032. Features: Class 1 Bluetooth provides up to 100 ft. of wireless freedom. Flexible configuration supports wired or wireless connectivity. Compatible with applications that diagnose engines, transmissions, ABS, instrument panels and more. Reduce reprogramming times with direct USB connection. Mixed fleet capabilities with broad protocol support. Quick access to vehicle data for maintenance or management reports. Quickly attaches to vehicle’s diagnostic connector. No messy cables to untangle or get in the way with Bluetooth. Easy portability increases flexibility. May be used with desktop PC or laptop. RP1210A, RP1210B, and J2534 API support.

All Tech 2’s are not considered equal. Tech 2 gives you unprecedented access to EVERY GM module and controller, provides the best and highest volume of vehicle data, and possesses the most bi-directional functionality of any diagnostic tool for GM family cars. There have been, however, a multitude of manufactures of GM Tech2 over the almost 30 years it has been in production.  Very early Vetronix units had solder joint problems which caused random communication failures.

In addition to being an inconvenience, if this occurs during a programing event, you will be left with a garbage controller!  Later models are made by Bosch, who bought Vetronix.  They have cheapened the unit up so much that it is marginally better than a Korean clone.  As a matter of fact, most of the electronics are made in Asia or in Eastern Europe where most of the clones come from. This was done as a cost cutting measure.  The result is a slew of premature failures!  The units that reside in the “middle” time were made and marketed by others like Hewlett Packard and OTC.  These were the most reliable and durable units around.

Does Tech Tool 2 have a fuel trip data report?

Does Tech Tool 2 have a fuel trip data report?

Yes, under Test you can find the vehicle fuel data report. You can perform a print function from this operation. Note that this data is not saved to the Product History and must be printed to paper, or to a file (ex. XPS file). Mack Vehicle Life and Trip report is under Function Group 1. Volvo Fuel Consumption Data is under Function Group 20. Both reports are identical.

GM Tech 2 is not only a diagnostic tool, it is also is capable of programing new and used programmable GM controllers, configuring functionality within modules and updating GM family cars with the most current programing.  You can gain access to programing on GM TIS on WEB website.  With very little effort, and cables that accommodate your type of PC, you can update or install programing in any GM family obd2 scanner or CAN compatible vehicle.  Tech 2 can also be used on SAAB, Holden, Isuzu, even some Toyota vehicles with optional programing available through GM and accessible by anyone for weekly, monthly, or yearly subscription.

I had a Nexiq usb link and recently purchased a Nexiq usb bluetooth link 2. I installed the driver for the link 2 on my laptop and every time I launch scanxl I cant communicate with it. Ive used the NEXIQ USB Link 2 and communicated with Detroit,Cat, heavy duty programs but I cant get it to work with any obd programs. Any ideas?

The new Wi-Fi edition supports dual band Wi-Fi, designed to avoid interference and maximize throughput. For even more reliability, we’ve upgraded the USB connector to a more robust, automotive grade connector with a latching mechanism. The USB-Link 2 is compatible with a wide range of OEM software applications.
