How to program Chevrolet ECBM with GM Tech 2 diagnostic scan tool

If ESC (Electronic Stability Control) DTC C0460, C0280 or C0196 etc displays on Driver Information Center (DIC) or you get the ECBM module replaced, you need to perform steering angel sensor calibration.

In this case, you need to
1) Use SPS (Service Programming System) to update the EBCM software. Program the EBCM using the SPS with the latest software available TIS2WEB.

2) Re-calibrate the steering angle sensor SRS in SI by using GM Tech 2 scan tool

Before calibration of the Yaw Rate sensor (Cluster Sensor on Tech 2) ensure there are no EBCM DTCs set.

Calibrating steering angle sensor with GM Tech2 scan tool:

1) Connect the gm tech 2 scanner with vehicle via OBD socket
2) Power up Tech 2 from obd2tool.com. Select Diagnostic from the main menu
3) Select vehicle year
4) Select vehicle model
5) Select Chassis
6) Select ABS/TC/ESP
7)Turn ignition to ON, press Confirm
8) Select Programming,
Vetronix tech 2 scan tool will prompt to calibrate steering angle sensor, click Confirm
9) Move steering wheel 5 degrees left or right, click Confirm.
10) Return the steering wheel back to center. The sensor now calibrates and the Tech 2 should then display “Calibration Successful”.
11) Follow prompts to calibrate the Yaw Rate Sensor (Cluster Sensor)
12) Select “YES” when Tech 2 displays “Calibrate Cluster Sensor” message
13) Turn steering wheel at least 10 degrees, press Confirm
14) Tech 2 should then display “Calibration Successful”
15) Exit tech 2 software program and erase stored DTCs.

NOTE:
During programming, the battery voltage must be maintained within the proper range of 12-15 Volts.

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

– 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.
