      I just got invited to join a beta testing group for a new J2534 device that will possibly be able to replace the MDI2. Price seems to be pretty good too at just under $200. It would be great if...

      I have a Drewtech cardaq plus 3 which is their latest and greatest tool (for now) and it works fine. I was actually surprised it worked with such old software.

      To add a passthru device in TIS2000 is a little more involved but not bad once you know what to do. You’ll probably figure it out before I get around to posting it but if not, I’ll try to post...

      Yep... And so during any further experimentation... I'll be stepping very lightly across the GM MDI-2 Mine Field as things progress. Considering how aggravating all of this is, whenever Folks...

      You had me at no excessive modules!

      It will be interesting to see how well that works. In general, even with a genuine OEM tool, it is frowned upon to do Wi-Fi module flashing. Too much can go wrong. They usually say just use the...

      If anyone wants to put up $880, this is a pretty good deal. Snapon gets their J2534 devices from Drewtech so this is just a rebadged Cardaq plus 2 which is an older model but would be adequate for...

      If it makes you feel any better, to flash a Chrysler product it costs me $121.95. Totally ridiculous.

      And the moment you've all been waiting for. Short answer, it works as it should. Now for a more detailed look. I took the fan shroud and fan out. Don't bitch about how difficult it is to...

      Tis2000, once cracked, is basically standalone but it only works for vehicles up to 2007. It hasn't been supported or updated since. After that, if you need to reprogram a module, you need a...

      They changed it last week to $45 😡

      Tis2web which included SPS was shut down last fall sometime. They’ve changed over to Techline Connect which includes SPS2. As far as I know, no one has been able to get their tech2 to work as a...

      True. It comes to what your risk level is. My Tech 2 clone has been solid so my tolerance to risk may be a bit higher. Of course for anyone working in a professional shop, true name brand and...

      Right. I can’t risk that. Alternatively, you can keep an eye out on eBay for a used MDI 2. Another thing I’ve used to flash GM’s is a VCM2 which is what Ford uses. Bosch makes both the MDI2 and...

      Then you’ll spend $1800+ https://www.drewtech.com/products/cardaqplus3.html I wouldn’t trust clones. I’ve heard too many stories of them bricking modules while programming due to the subpar...
