Received package at 12-19-2017
Well I finally got the tech2,i had to file a dispute through PayPal though. They sent me several emails on the status but one asked for my phone number for shipping, only problem was it was a no reply email and there was no way of sending the number through their website, so I started a dispute. Within hours I got a normal email from them and sent the phone number. The tech2 arrived 2 days later. it looks and feels exactly like the gm one, and I have been using these things since they changed from the tech1 to the tech2,i have years of experience with it and it works exactly like any others I’ve used at gm dealers over the years.im happy with it, even though the shipping was a lot, it’s still a great deal.462.00 for a brand new tech2 with a candi module all the cables and adapters and case is great.
GM  TECH2 Scanner Using Experience:
So far I only connected to my intimidator ss and everything was there, haven’t used it on the corvettes yet, but I would imagine it should be able to set up a BCM. i would like to 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.

it will do the relearn, I’ve used it some more since my last post and it does everything a real tech2 does, and I’ve been using the real one professionally since its inception. Mine came with the 32 mb card. you have to specify GM English when you order the unit. There are a lot of other cards for different languages Saab, Holden, etc

How to used GM Tech2 adding Corvette RPO option codes

This details out what exactly is needed to add/change RPO option codes to existing 97+ Corvettes using GM Tech2 scan tool. This scanner can be purchased from here for around $300. This is helpful on 2001+ ZO6s to add the T82 Automatic Headlamp operation at night feature as well as adding the tire pressure monitoring function. Both of which are built into the ZO6s Body Control Module (BCM) and just need to be “turned on” in order to work. The Automatic headlamp function usually requires no parts to be purchased but the tire pressure monitoring system needs to have sensors installed on all 4 tires. These can be found in the classified section of corvetteforum.com usually for around $200.00. These instructions will also help owners of F45 real time dampening suspension option convert to regular shocks that do not have sensors built in. Right now people are paying upwards of $200.00 for emulators that plug into the wiring harness to trick the BCM. A simple solution is to just go into the BCM function and toggle off the F45 suspension options. No codes will be set and the car will not go into reduced engine power mode.

What is HP Tuners:

The HP Tuners vcm suite is the most feature rich, powerful and comprehensive vcm/PCM reprogramming and diagnostics package available on the market today. Vcm suite is the ultimate tuning tool designed for basic Tuners to advanced tuning shops.

GM Tech 2 vs. HP Tuners:

HPT can only work with ECM and TCM

Tech II can work with ABS, BCM, etc. (all systems)

But, Tech 2 can only change/do stuff GM intended where HPT can change all kinds of tables GM wouldn’t want us messing with

So both have pluses/minuses depending on what you want to do

Techii Scanner tool:

confirmed to works good for ALL systems

I just checked my Tech II clone against my 2006 C6. In the ABS section there is an “Automated Bleed” option. In the Radiosection there is a “VIN Relearn” option. I’ve never actually used either one, but I bet it works.

The Tech II clone is literally running the same software as the Tech II, so it has all the same functions. There are a few caveats: the standard clone power supply will cause the unit to reset if you run the starter motor, apparently, though this can be fixed. Also, operating while tethered to a PC involves a bunch of licensing hacks and other nonsense. But you only need to do that if you want to flash the ECU firmware.

The Tech II lets you see (and individually reset) all the DTCs from all the modules. It also has a bunch of special functions and bidirectional capabilities.

It’s great as a standalone Car Diagnostic Tool  but it isn’t intended to modify ECU parameters like tuning software does. This is a tool for fixing the car, not modifying it.

06 GM Corvette check engine light on

Story goes like this:

I recently took my 06 GM Corvette to our local GM dealership of an oil change. My car has almost 26,000 miles on it, it’s in presteen condition and runs perfect. A week ago the “check engine” light appeared on the dash (the same time the “change oil” display appeared). My assumption was the check engine light was associated with the needed oil change. The service department manager calls and informs me my car needs a ECM ($500). I realize the car is 11 years old, but at 26,000 miles I wouldn’t dream of having to start replacing practically brand new parts! Should I get a second opinion? Is the ECM a known issue with this model? Shouldn’t the car run bad if the ECM needs replaced?

So the second opinion to troubleshoot is to pull the codes with a GM scanner, the popular working one is GM Tech2.

Then I search and choose a web store who I think is reliable: www.fobdii.com, it is around 250USD and it’s an old site because I am considering if I have any question after I ordered they can help me fix it.

 tech2-diagnostic-scanner-for-gm-14

I was taking my car to a dealer for an oil change, I would be in way over my head with that level of scanner. I should have had the CEL code read as soon as it came on, not assumed that it was related to the OLM.

 

Attached one senior user’s review on GM Tech2 I think it is helpful:

I thought it was a worthwhile investment since there are 3 GM cars in the family fleet.

2 days after mine arrived I promptly scanned and cleared the code. My check engine light came on immediately after I detailed my engine compartment to get it ready for a car show. I had the air filter assembly out to clean it and it threw an erroneous code “High Intake Air Temperature” when I started the car. I cleared the code and it hasn’t come back on since.

If you are the first installment on the purchase and saved a trip to the dealer. These new cars and their complex CAN bus computerized systems have been known to have electrical gremlins. I have had 2 instances in the 6 months of ownership where the cruise control quit working. To repair it I had to disconnect the battery, let it sit for a while, hook it up again and it was fixed.
