Calling all Tech 2 and high end scanner owners


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
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.

NOTE: Requests will be allowed but will be deleted after a while to keep this thread clean. Please stay on topic.

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!

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.

Just arrived this week, it's a knock off but it works and I got the Candi module and all the accessories. I've also bought an old Dell laptop with XP and a real com port and have ordered the TIS2000 software CD/dongle from eBay.

So if you need to copy a module, or do something that the tech2 will do that your old reader won't, then drop me a line. If you can make a small donation for using it that's great, cash, beer, pizza and cigars all accepted. If you can't that's OK too, I'll help for the Karma.

I won't lend it though, you'll need to come here and it won't leave, sorry but I'm not going to lend a $500 tool to a stranger.

I'm in Mission BC, just up the hill from the racetrack.
