Part 1: VXDIAG NANO operation

Q: How does this tool work with your car?
A: It connects to the OBD2 connector under your dashboard. You use a laptop to connect to it. The software comes with it to install on a newer laptop. I use a Win7 64-bit. The software to read vehicle diagnostics and codes runs in a “virtual” term window on the laptop that emulate a 32-bit WinXP machine.

A: The USB version can only by USB.
Wifi version can be both USB and wifi.

A: No it’s not it’s more like a clone tool but definitely works great does 99% of original tool. You can use TIS2Web and gain access to all modules in vehicle.

Part 2: VXDIAG NANO supported GM/OPEl models & functions

Q: Will this work on 2003 chevy silverado2500hd with 6 liter motor?
A: Yes, it can work for your car.

Q: Will this work to scan and clear bcm codes on a 1999 pontiac grand am gt? will it work for all the systems and programming on this same car?
A: I would say yes. To my knowledge, the GM hardware TECH2 hand held device is compatible with all GM models for years 1996-2011. The TECH2WIN is the windows version of that tool, both developed by GM. The same functions are performed when using the Windows version combined with a J2534 adapter, and in this case the (VXDIAG). This tool should be able to diagnose/program your BCM/EBCM as I’m not aware of another method released by GM. The same goes for all the other systems on the car. The codes can be cleared by following the procedures in the GM repair manuals.

Q: Does this work for saabs?
A: Saab old vehicle not work, only for saab vehicle after 2010 year.

Q: Will this work on 2013 chev avalanche? More specifically, will it read the suspension code for this vehicle?
A 1: Yes, you can read.
A 2: It should using GDS2 not Tech2Win.

Q: Will this work with 2000 gmc yukon to calibrate hvac system?
A: I can give a general answer for this. I do not have a VCX NANO for GM but do have the NANO for Ford and it works well for basic things but don’t advise flashing your modules with it. The Ford NANO comes with hacked Ford IDS and it works (although I use ForScan software mostly).
The GM version of VCX NANO comes with a cracked copy of GM TECH2WIN, which emulates TECH2 functions in Windows when used with a GM MDI or emulator like the NANO and TECH2WIN software is capable of performing the calibration in all of the GMT800 platform vehicles like yours (you must have the software working). These guys use VMWare workstation to run a pre-built virtual machine with the OEM software that is fooled into thinking it is licensed. The Virtual machine should work if your PC has enough memory and CPU to support it. I have a TECH2/CANDI so I don’t need this one but a friend has the NANO GM and says that it works. Hope that helps.
