    I want to start a list of owners of Tech 2's that would like to make their services/help available to other forum members. I don't like having to refer members to dealers because they are usually the only ones with it so if we can get a network going, it would be a benefit to all.

    Personally, I wouldn't ask for money from members (others are another story) but if anyone has benefited from this, I have two suggestions. The one who received the help pledge to become a member of GMTNation (if not already) or tip the owner of the Tech 2 by buying lunch, a couple of drinks, a bottle of their favourite beverage, etc. Would also depend if the Tech 2 owner has to displace himself to get to the vehicle in the case of a no-start, ABS brake bleeding and the like where I would ask for gas money. The one being helped should normally be the one to displace himself.

    I would also like to mention that this will be a voluntary service and not a business. Strictly according to the goodwill of all involved. Requests would be by PM's.

    I'll start it off. Maybe the following format would work and I can modify this post adding members.

    User name
    Location/area
    Willing to travel if necessary? Distance?

    Edit: If you have another advanced type of scanner (i.e. Solus or Snap On), you can also be added to the list. Just indicate the type and up to what year it is updated to.

    I do not have a tech 2. I own a solus updated to 2012, and an old red brick snap-on scanner updated to 2006. Both have domestic/asian capabilities.

    Add me to the list. I can do 90% what a tech2 can. Including CASE relearns, ABS bleeding etc.

    That is excellent. Thank you Neohio! I added you to the list and I also changed the title so that we can include even more.

    Lets keep this going!

    Larry, if you would like to use it, I'm sure I can take that trip when it comes up. Well, I'll have to fight my tech pretty hard! It should be coming up in the rotation in the next month or so.

    If you have to come out here and you can bring I would like to check it out. Now that I have the TB and Silverado. I would hope there isn't much to get it to work on the newer vehicles. I guess you can say that is what has me not wanting to pull the trigger at this time.

    Larry, the card in it covers 1991-2013. These units come with the CANdi module, which my truck needs. Not sure what would be different with your truck, unless it is an MDI system. If it is 2014 or newer, that may be the case.

    It may be, I am still trying to learn more on the truck but it is kind of hard here when people don't post up on them. So every now and then I venture to other sites to see what I can learn. [​IMG]

    I have a Snapon Modis Ultra that is kept updated all the time. It will do most of what the Tech 2 will do. I also have a Pass Thru Pro 2 that can be used to re-flash any GM module. I can use the Pass Thru Pro as a Tech2 as well.
