Only question is, what do you do for TIS2000 software and access keys if you buy the Chinese version? GM wants $55/2 day access for TIS2WEB (or $1000/yr).

That sicotool site sells a TIS disc and usb drive for $30 (not sure how legit that one it...pic is of a generic CD for goshsakes), but if you have a 2008+ newer vehicle, it wouldnt work anyways.

Since Roni now has a 2012 Traverse, Im kinda screwed there. It would still work on my car, trucks and the kids cars, though.

Or if you know someone with gmglobalconnect login ID your good.

Yes Kyle it will access the bcm and driver door/seat module/ abs/ etc on all 01-13 duramax a. 2014+ requires use of an mdi

Maybe I should start charging for my gm login credentials lol

And Tom for the traverse you will need the mdi.

The clones work fine with TIS2web as far as I know, provided you don't update them. I have no idea how, but somehow, updating a clone can/will fry it. It doesn't do anything to the card, it actually kills something in the tech2. A friend of mine worked at a shop that acquired a clone, and when the updated it, it got fired. They got it replsced, then tried to update the replacement and it got fried too. Took the card out of the fried tech2 and put it in mine (genuine) and it worked fine.

To each their own, but personally, I would avoid the clones like the plague. I bought my CANDi module through a local dealership to make sure I wouldn't get a clone.

Thanks for the info, Logan. Very much appreciated.

Cougs, I'd love to buy actual GM equipment (as many of us would), but the price! I mean, c'mon......

There is an exceptionally long thread on the Saab forum about this very topic:

http://www.saabcentral.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=260738

Then they have another thread concerning TIS2000:

http://www.saabcentral.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=309402

Those guys are techie crazies that would make Ben blush.

Oh, I also found the sico.com TIS disc on Amazon for less $$ and free shipping:

Basically if you have access to a Gm login, you sign on, click onto tis2web, and then get the 2nd page. Software Download will end your chinese tech2, but using SPS (service programming system), if you have an mdi it will pick it up off of wifi. otherwise the tech 2 had to be plugged into the computer and it will show it.

To anyone wondering, I purchased a tech2 from sico tools, last week, and got it today and it works flawless. Did a fast learn on a truck, used to to diag a Kodiak and pulled codes from an lb7...doesn't seem any slower or faster than the one at the dealer I used. Not bad for $409 to the door (paid the 3-5 day shipping)

Especially considering how many you can own compared to a real one.

Yes they do they are $230



And Tom, you are welcome just wanted to update it. I was a little worried about it but went for it and am very happy with the results. It has all the adapters for obd1 as well. Going to try plugging into my 90 gmc one night and see what it does for it lol

I went through paypal so i figured if i opened the box and it was an old dirty shoe i was covered

Even as far as the feel of it, the chinese kids did well assembling as it feels like a pretty solid unit. doesnt feel cheesy at all. They shipped DHL too which isnt very common around here. It was in Cincinnati Ohio at 5:30 this am, and was delivered here to my work in maryland at 9am. Was kinda impressed. Comes in the hard case and all.
