Well, I finally got the tech2, i had to file a dispute through paypal though. The tools arrived 2 days later. Tech 2 looks and feels exactly like the gm one. $229.00 for a brand new tech2 scanner with a candi module. all the cables and adapters and case is great
Here it is !
32 MB PCMCIA card
TIS2000 CD, DVD etc
full set cables
Package includes the TIS2000 CD and DVD along with the USB Key
TIS2000 lets the Tech2 communicate with a computer (Win XP/vista and virtual machine i think.) to download data. The USB key is for accessing the GM site to revise the PCM settings so long as there were allowed by GM.
I’m good to go ! I’m trying to learn the Tech 2 and figure out the use of the Tech 2 and the TIS2000 I bought .
I run TIS2000 in a virtual winXP on my win 10 computer using Oracle Virtualbox .
Here is a photo I took just showing how you can use the Tech 2 scanner together with a windows 10 pc and the TIS2000 running in a virtual win XP pc .
I have also connected the USB key to a USB port and it recognized by the virtual pc .
As far as I also have learned you download files for your VIN from ac delco site by means of the TIS2000 first . Then you copy these files from the pc into Tech2 memory . Afterwards you connect the Tech2 to the OBD2 plug in car and update according to correct prosedure . I hope you can confirm if this is correct ….
I can´t see any problem with reflashing the PCM using this clone .
This video seems to confirm that the quality is good of these clones .
