How to upload captured data by GM TECH2 TIS2000

Topic:  How to upload captured data by using GM Tech 2 Scan Tool.


I hope TIS2000 can give more useful info regarding troubleshooting on C5 than a coloring book .
The Tech2 can record snapshots ( two I think) of a number of parameters. These snapshot recordings can be started by a DTC or manual started pressing the Tech 2 keypad .
These snapshots can later be uploaded from Tech 2 to the PC with TIS2000 and replayed as shown on the sceendump below.


It’s a neat feature for someone who doesn’t have another way to do a datalog.
Sure was worth the money I spent.

How to Bleed ABS on Corvette with GM Tech II

Bleeding ABS on Corvette with GM Tech II by following the next procedure.

Perform a manual or pressure bleeding procedure. If the desired brake pedal height results are not achieved, perform the automated bleed procedure below.
The procedure cycles the system valves and runs the pump in order to purge the air from the secondary circuits normally closed off during normal base brake operation and bleeding. The automated bleed procedure is recommended when air ingestion is suspected in the secondary circuits, or when the BPMV has been replaced.

Automated Bleed Procedure
Notice: The Auto Bleed Procedure may be terminated at any time during the process by pressing the EXIT button. No further Scan Tool prompts pertaining to the Auto Bleed procedure will be given. After exiting the bleed procedure, relieve bleed pressure and disconnect bleed equipment per manufacturer’s instructions. Failure to properly relieve pressure may result in spilled brake fluid causing damage to components and painted surfaces.
1. Raise the vehicle on a suitable support.
2. Remove all four tire and wheel assemblies.
3. Inspect the brake system for leaks and visual damage. Refer to Brake Fluid Loss or Symptoms – Hydraulic Brakes. Repair or replace as needed.
4. Inspect the battery state of charge.
5. Install a scan tool.
6. Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
7. With the scan tool, establish communications with the Professional Diagnostic Tool. Select Special Functions. Select Automated Bleed from the Special Functions menu.
8. Bleed the base brake system.
9. Follow the scan tool directions until the desired brake pedal height is achieved.
10. If the bleed procedure is aborted, a malfunction exists. Perform the following steps before resuming the bleed

– If a DTC is detected, refer to Diagnostic Trouble Code
(DTC) List and diagnose the appropriate DTC.
– If the brake pedal feels spongy, perform the conventional brake bleed procedure again.
11. When the desired pedal height is achieved, press the brake pedal in order to inspect for firmness.
12. Remove the scan tool.
13. Install the tire and wheel assemblies.
14. Inspect the brake fluid level.
15. Road test the vehicle while inspecting that the pedal remains high and firm.

Diagnostic Codes on Caterpillar ET Software

Diagnostic Capabilities

Diagnostic Codes
The engine’s Electronic Control Module (ECM) has the ability to monitor the circuitry between the ECM and the engine’s components. The ECM also has the ability to monitor the engine’s operating conditions. If the ECM detects a problem, a code is generated.


There are three categories of codes of CAT Electronic Technician:
-Diagnostic Code
-Event Code
-Flash Code

-Diagnostic Code – A diagnostic code indicates an electrical problem such as a short or an open in the engine’s wiring or in an electrical component.
-Event Code – An event code is generated by the detection of an abnormal engine operating condition. For example, an event code will be generated if the oil pressure is too low. In this case, the event code indicates the symptom of a problem. Event codes indicate mechanical problems rather than electrical problems.
-Flash Code – Diagnostics and events are reported via flash codes. When a diagnostic code or an event code becomes active, the specific condition is immediately reported to the operator through a series of flashes on the diagnostic lamp. By counting the flashes, a numeric representation of the diagnostic code or event code is revealed.

Codes can have two different states:

-Active Codes
An active code indicates that a problem is present. Service the active code first. For the appropriate
troubleshooting procedure for a particular code, refer to the following troubleshooting procedure:
a. Troubleshooting, “Diagnostic Trouble Codes”
b. Troubleshooting, “Event Codes”
Refer to the Troubleshooting, “Diagnostic Code Cross Reference” for information that relates to converting flash codes to the equivalent diagnostic code or to the equivalent event code.

-Logged Codes
The codes are logged and stored in the ECM memory. The problem may have been repaired and/or the problem may no longer exist. If the system is powered, it is possible to generate an active diagnostic code whenever a component is disconnected. If the component is reconnected, the code is no longer active but the code may become logged.
Logged codes may not indicate that a repair is needed. The problem may have been temporary. Logged codes may be useful to help troubleshoot intermittent problems. Logged codes can also be used to review the performance of the engine and of the electronic system.

Piwis 3 Compare With Piwis Tester 2

As the VXDIAG Porsche PIWIS 3 for Porsche diagnostic & programming released, most client inquiry for the Piwis 3 to replace Piwis tester ii for Porsche new models. Some client asks what’s the difference between Piwis Tester II & Piwis 3. whether the Piwis II work with the Piwis 3 software? Below share one client opinion for this.
Purchase Piwis 2 or Piwis 3?


It may be an interesting subject, I’m sure there is some information about this out here.

First of all, the Piwis 2 interface is a lot more robust piece of equipment, compared to the cheesy and flimsy looking and feeling interface produced by Actia for Piwis 3.

Originally designed for the VW ODIS system, the VAS6154 VCI is quite the service needy piece. [Breaks easily] not a hard comparison to make.
Is it worth to purchase Piwis 3 replace Piwis 2 now? Can the Porsche Piwis 2 compatible with Piwis 3 Software?

This answer for the question of whether Piwis 3 software can work with Piwis II Samtec HSX Interface from

Secondly, I thought the Piwis 3 for Porsche went cheap. [my humble opinion, way below Porsche standard!]

At the same time, there is a service from Poland and Ukraine [If I remember correctly] that can make the Samtec based Piwis 2 VCI from, to work with Piwis 3.

Unfortunately, their charges are just as much and frankly cost prohibitive as the New Piwis 3 VCI. 2-3-4 thousand dollars for these VCIs is simply not reasonable for small operators.

They will come down in price just like the Chinese VCIs did for all manufacturers as the markets get saturated and folks are not buying them as eagerly as at the beginning of the Piwis 3 had.

They will get as much money as the market bares. [as much as people are willing to pay]

Your more pointed answers will not come in this tread Ibi. This is Cars Fan’s money-making tread, he will not volunteer any information, but if U start your own tread, U may be more likely to find out stuff.


What Do the Piwis 3 updates replace Piwis 2?

Diagnostics application is used for communication with control units. You can search for, identify, code and control program units, read out the event memory, execute complex processes, change drive links and execute routines.

Guided fault finding (GFF) generates a test plan for a fault code. This test plan shows the best sequence for carrying out tests. GFF compiles a list of recommended tests, documents and wiring diagrams

Actual values/input signals functions display you the actual values and input signals of control units

Drive links/tests function displays the drive links of control units, allows you to change the parameters of these drive links and run test routines for individual control units

Maintenance/repairs function group – use this function to call up control unit-specific processes that cannot be implemented generically from the ODX data

Coding/programming function group – use this function to write coding values. Piwis 3 can code Values automatically or set manually. This function group includes (Automatic coding, Manual

coding, Customer-specific settings, and Factory settings) coding modes

Logging – use this function to activate logging for diagnostics, guided fault finding (GFF) and measuring equipment applications. Temporary and permanent working log can be created

Filter – use this function to limit the view of the control units installed in the vehicle. In the diagnostic application, you can create, edit, activate, deactivate or assign filters

Wiring diagrams application is the representation of physical connections and layouts of circuits

Measuring equipment interface work for DC and AC voltage measurement, direct and alternating current measurement, diode testing, resistance measurement, continuity/open circuit testing, showing voltage, current and resistance over time (oscilloscope function)

Tool Review: AE Tools MicroPod II with WiTech software

The reviewer finds this scan tool and software are among his favorite factory tools due to the ease of use and the depth of coverage provided.

The Chrysler Micropod II diagnostic tool from AE Tools is small enough to fit in a shirt pocket and offers 100-percent CAN coverage for Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and Fiat vehicle platforms, according to the manufacturer. This dongle-style, PC-based device can be used in place of the StarMobile, StarScan and WiTech Pod scan tools.
The Review

Martin Fay, president of The Motor Works of DeKalb in DeKalb, Ill., reviewed the AE Tools MicroPod II with WiTech software. Motor Works services and repairs domestic and imported vehicles, and Fay finds this scan tool and software are among his favorite factory tools due to the ease of use and the depth of coverage provided.

Fay says this tool offers him time savings when programming Chrysler vehicles. Before, when the shop needed to program Chrysler vehicle ECUs, they would make an appointment with a dealer a day or two ahead of time. Then, they would tow the vehicle to the dealership and wait at the dealership while the programming was performed. Now, they can perform the programming in-house, which can lead to days’ worth of time savings.

“The diagnostic time-savings is equally as large due to the superior organization and logical navigation of WiTech,” says Fay. In addition, the Chrysler MicroPOD II with WiTech software also supplies diagnostic repair information keyed to each trouble code.

He also likes the “ECU Not Built” function of WiTech software. “Knowing whether an ECU is communicating is critical to diagnosis.”

The most challenging job Fay used the MicroPod II with WiTech on was a 2007 Chrysler Pacifica. The vehicle, which was towed to the shop, had multiple dash warning lights on, the engine wasn’t cranking and the owner had previously replaced the powertrain control module (PCM). Fay says, “Using the MicroPod II and WiTech, we found several modules not communicating. The topology helped us determine which modules were talking on what buses. Having accurate code descriptions was also a great help.”

To diagnose this issue, Fay removed the non-functioning PCM, checked power and ground feeds to the unit and made corresponding repairs. “Repairs now allowed the Pacifica to crank and start, but immediately die. WiTech topology now showed a repaired PCM, but several other modules still failed to communicate, including the wireless control module,” says Fay.

“Removal of the wireless control module found a 12V feed wire missing. This had occurred when another party removed an aftermarket remote start. Wiring repairs now brought the remaining modules back online. The vehicle started and continued to run. The MicroPod II and WiTech software proved invaluable in this complicated diagnosis.”

Fay also uses this tool to program keys, wireless control and other modules, and to perform general diagnostics on many Chrysler vehicles.

Even though he had not used a previous version of this tool, Fay found the Chrysler wiTech MicroPod 2 and WiTech software easier to use than most factory scan tools currently on the market.

One of the tool’s greatest strengths, according to Fay, is the company’s support. “AE Tools will modem into your computer, install all the required files, perform the setup, ensure proper connection to the vehicle and then provide a mini lesson in the MicoPod II’s and WiTech’s use.

“Over time, Motor Works has experienced typical problems with scanner communication, programming, tool usage, etc.” He says, “All were solved with a call to AE Tools’ support line. We did not have to wait for a call back. Immediate help was obtained by staff who know their product inside-out. Compared to other support organizations, this is a dream.”

Even though the company offers support, Fay adds that it is up to the user to practice with the tool and maintain proficiency.

The MicroPod II from comes in a hard shell case with all required cabling, but Fay also suggests that the Flight Recorder button and cable would be good accessories to have on-hand. “They allow one to program the MicroPod II with a list of specific PIDs for recording during a road test. Once programmed, the laptop is disconnected from the MicroPod II and a push button is installed.

“When the technician or customer feels a problem occur, the button activates ‘recording’ mode. This data is then downloaded into the WiTech program for later viewing,” he adds. “This recording can help locate problems areas like a miss or shudder, that only occur when driving the vehicle.”

Although this tool ranks near the top of his personal list, Fay suggests the following adjustments could be made to improve the PID data graphing: “I would like to see cursors included for more accurate interpretation of data; the ability to move graph zero point (like Picoscope) would be a benefit; the ability to save graphs in video form and export them, without reliance on Flight Recorder would also be a great help,” he says.

Finally, he adds, “The inclusion of Guided Fault Finding like that of European scanners would make this tool near perfect.”
