GM MDI 2 Clone vs. Original GM Multiple Interface

Look here: GM MDI 2 what’s the difference of the genuine and the china knock-off?
compared with MDI 1, what’s good of MDI2? Should you buy a new one?

GM-MDI-2-Clone-vs-Original-GM-Multiple-Interface-2

Conclusion:
The MDI 2 genuine and china clone share the same functions.
They are different in the price and operating system only!
For a GM garage, you can buy the genuine to use with relief!
For personal use, the price of clone is good and it’s worth the money!
MDI 2 comes with GM software in a HDD that people don’t have to install software themselves and will have no installation issues!

Is it necessary to have a MDI 2 if you have a GM MDI already?
It depends.
If you are the one pursuit security and efficiency, it’s necessary to have a new MDI2 interface.

The next generation of the J2534 GM Multiple Diagnostic Interface, MDI 2 (Fig. 1, right), offers increased processing power and security than the original MDI (Fig. 1, left) for faster programming speeds on current Global A vehicles as well as future Global B vehicles. The compact communication module is required in order to manage the transfer of data between a vehicle’s onboard network and a service technician’s PC.

GM-MDI-2-Clone-vs-Original-GM-Multiple-Interface-2

Both original and clone MDI 2 are now available in the market.

Both MDI 2 supports diagnostic applications — GDS 2, Data Bus Diagnostic Tool, and Tech2Win — as well as Pass-Thru programming applications — TIS2Web–SPS.

Enhancements to the tool were based on technicians’ feedback on how they use the MDI and how to improve it. It replaces the first generation MDI, introduced in 2007, for Pass-Thru programming on current GM models. The MDI 2 is backward compatible, so it can be used to perform Pass-Thru programming on all vehicles built since 1996.

The MDI 2 connects to the vehicle via the J1962 connector using a new DLC cable. Connection between the MDI 2 and the PC running the Global Diagnostic System 2 (GDS 2) software can be accomplished via standalone (USB), through a new Point-to-Point wireless Wi-Fi interface feature (a simple plug & play), or through the dealership network (Ethernet or wireless).

MDI 2 Full Kit

The Professional Car Diagnostic Tool EL-52100 MDI 2 kit includes:

MDI 2 Unit
SAE J1962 DLC Cable
10-ft. USB A to USB B Cable
Ethernet Cable
D-Link Wireless USB Adapters (Dongles) (Optional; for wireless connection)

A DLC Cable Self-Test Loopback Adapter (Fig. 5) was sent to dealerships as an essential tool in December. It’s compatible with the MDI and MDI 2. It’s also sold separately through GM Dealer Equipment.

The adapter is used to test the DLC cable for open wires when used with the MDI Manager software. The adapter also can be used to power the MDI or MDI 2 on the workbench.

GM MDI 2 Connections (Fig. 6)

USB Port Type A
DB26 Connector (DLC Cable)
USB Port Type A
USB Port Type B – PC Connection Port
Wireless Adapter (Dongle)
Ethernet Port
New Features

Wi-Fi Connection– The USB Wi-Fi adapter uses a USB dongle that enables Point-to-Point connections without the need for Wi-Fi SSID information or a wireless router.
USB Connection– Uses a new, more secure Type B connector and Ground Offset Failure protection. A wired connection is recommended for longer programming events.
Power Source – The MDI 2 is powered from the vehicle battery via the DLC Cable. It may also be powered over USB to perform firmware updates only using a PC.
Power Backup– Internal batteries that were used in case of a power interruption have been removed, which eliminates the possibility of old batteries corroding over time and damaging the unit. Capacitors maintain power during engine cranking, so operation is maintained.
Firmware Download– Uses USB 2.0 for faster firmware downloads instead of a separate AC power supply.
Future Expansion– Additional USB ports, an SD memory card slot and Function buttons are built into the unit for future enhancements.
Operating Temperature Range– The temperature range has been extended to -20° to 70°C (the MDI range was zero to 50° C).
DLC Cable– The DLC cable is twice as long as the previous cable and connects at the top, making it easier to use. The cable only connects to the MDI 2. A self-test adapter (accessed through the MDI Manager) can be used to test the integrity of the cable.

MDI Manager Software

The MDI Manager must be installed on the PC in order to configure, update and run diagnostic applications targeted for the PC.  Initially, use the MDI Manager software to set up the configuration of the MDI 2. The MDI Manager is also used to update the firmware on the MDI 2. Visit the TIS2Web/GlobalTIS website to determine if a newer version of MDI Manager software is available.

Wireless Dongle Setup

The first time the MDI 2 is used, the point-to-point USB dongle must be paired with the PC, which will install the necessary drivers on the computer. One dongle should be plugged into the PC and one into the MDI 2. (Fig. 7) The dongles are identical. Use either one for either connection. Remove the bottom dust cover to access the port.

TIP: Do not plug the dongle into a USB hub. It must be plugged directly into the computer.

GM-MDI-2-Clone-vs-Original-GM-Multiple-Interface-3
GM-MDI-2-Clone-vs-Original-GM-Multiple-Interface-4

Connect the MDI 2 to the PC via the USB cable. After starting the MDI Manager, the Point-to-Point connection is automatically configured. The USB dongles are intended to stay plugged into the PC or laptop at all time. If it must be removed, safety eject it by right-clicking on the Windows USB icon in the bottom right toolbar on the computer.

Dealerships considering new purchases should look into the MDI 2 for its many new advantages The original MDI will continue to be supported, but will not work on future Global B models.

2019 GM MDI2 vs GM MDI diagnostic programming tool

2019 GM MDI2 shares the same functions and vehicle coverage as GM MDI. GM MDI2 features in a light blue color shell and brand-new shape, GM MDI features in dark blue shell.

2019 GM MDI2 is optional with Wifi version and USB version (means wired network connection is not allowed)
GM MDI is only optional with Wifi version.

Image 1: 2019 GM MDI2 in light blue (WIFI or USB options)
gm-mdi2-vs-gm-mdi-1

Image 2: GM MDI in dark blue.
gm-mdi2-vs-gm-mdi-2

Similarities:
1. Both GM MDI2 and MDI are compatible with GDS2 Tech2Win
gm-mdi2-vs-gm-mdi-3

gm-mdi2-vs-gm-mdi-4
OS: WIN7 64bit
Computer: the year after 2008, 4GB RAM
Pros: gds2 software needs no activation
The method to use: Insert the HDD with GM MDI gds2 software into your computer; the software can be used directly with the GM MDI scanner.

gm-mdi2-vs-gm-mdi-5

Tech2win is the program that works just like a Tech II, but the program running on a laptop for the MDI (clone MDI device which the Nano is).
GDS2 is the program for the C7, like the tech II and tech2win with midi is for the C6 instead.
On the VM GDS 2, you don’t need an account with GM to use it, short of needing to do SPS programming, which you will need a TDS SPS subscription instead ($40 for 2 years per car).

So the low down for most laptops,
Wants to be running in win 10 for TDS SPS programming.
Needs to be running a multi-core chip in win 7 or above to run VM player for VM GDS2.
Need to be running in Win 7 native (32 or 64 bit) to run Tech2win (will not work in a VM shell).

2. Both GM MDI2 and MDI have the same capabilities
Full dealer level diagnostics and programming for all Vauxhall /Opel 16 pin vehicles from 1996 to 2017.

1). Clone GM MDI Review
Compatibility:
Device works with GDS2 (Opel)
Device works with Tech2Win (Opel, Hammer)
The device does not work with SAAB via Tech2Win

GM MDI is working in Nissan Consult 3 Plus
gm-mdi2-vs-gm-mdi-6

Cars tested- success & failure list:
1: SAAB 9-5, 2003, 3.0 TID- works
mine is a clone from China.
MDI Software 8.1.135.13
GT32
SAAB NAO V9.250
Simply pressed OK when Candy detected and all worked.
Tested on SAAB 9-5, 2003, 3.0 TID

2: 2014 model – works
SAAB NAO V9.250 is from 2014. Already tested.
The 2003 year too old – not interesting for me.

3: Saab 9-5, 2003, 3.0 – works
Tested by my own, works with Saab 9-5, 2003, 3.0

Online or offline issues:
1: online – good, offline – bad
GM MDI good, interface works online.
update mdi 100%.
offline too bad for new cars.

2: wifi card compatible
at now, Chinese clone GM MDI with the squ wifi card

3: wifi not working but works well with USB
I bought a cheap one and it only worked with USB. The wired network and wifi did not work. In fact, the card flash socket was missing from the board. Build quality was not to bad. I just use it to flash newer PCM/ecm’s.

GM MDI WIFI version:

https://www.cnautotool.com/goods-6863-Best-quality-GM-MDI-2-Diagnostic-Tool-Multiple-Diagnostic-Interface-with-WIFI.html

GM MDI USB version:

https://www.cnautotool.com/goods-6864-GM-MDI-2-Diagnostic-Tool-Multiple-Diagnostic-Interface.html

Quoted: a man of his words to trust in:
I would not go by pictures posted on the web as vendors share the same photos but the MDI had a different ethernet connector and missing card flash socket. It was advertised as (without wifi). It does work fine on USB and for flashing PCM/ECM because at 480 Mbit/s it is almost 5 times faster than ethernet.

The MDI clone works fine with tech2win and also TIS2000. Used it for diags and PCM flashing with no problem (through USB port only)

2). GM TECH2 TIS2000 VS VXDIAG Nano VS MDI in the installation
ON the VX nano, sometimes you can get Tech2win to run on win 10 (maybe if you have an AMD chip or not, but have not figured that one out yet), while on my i7 machine, Tech 2 win will not run in win 10 instead.
Tech2win is the program that works just like a Tech II, but the program running on a laptop for the MDI (clone MDI device which the Nano is).
GDS2 is the program for the C7, like the tech II and tech2win with midi is for the C6 instead.
On the VM GDS 2, you don’t need an account with GM to use it, short of needing to do SPS programming, which you will need a TDS SPS subscription instead ($40 for 2 years per car).

So the low down for most laptops,
Wants to be running in win 10 for TDS SPS programming.
Needs to be running a multi-core chip in win 7 or above to run VM player for VM GDS2.
Need to be running in Win 7 native (32 or 64 bit) to run Tech2win (will not work in a VM shell).
Tis2000 needs to run in WinXP or built the VM XP shell, so it can be native in XP or in a VM shell so long as you have a multicore processor.

So the way I do it, since Tech2win will not run native on my machine with an I7 process in win 10, I have a dual boot up in win 7 and win 10 both.

Win 10 is used to run pretty much everything I run, short of Tech2 win, which I use the win 7 64 boot up to run it.

So in the Win 7 dual boot up (small 40 gig partition off the drive), have tech2win to use the Nano as a Tech II, plus VM GMSI, and Tis2000 in a VM shell since I may need them as well for the VX nano running as a tech II when running in win 7.

In win 10 boot up,
VM GDS2 V17
TDS using internet explorer native with account
VM Tis2000 built on a full XP OS with account
VM GMSI

If you want to just run a single OS system, instead of a dual boot up machine since you can’t get Tech2 win to run in win10, then you can run pretty much run everything in win 7 (32 or 64 bit), so long as you have a CPU that has multicores. Hence you going to need to run at least VM player for the VM shells, and it takes as a multi-core processor to run VM player (or VM workstation).
Note, I have VM workstation, instead of just VM player, since I build other VM shells to run in windows as well.

So again, it really just depends on your machine, and if you Tech2win will run correctly on it or not.
Hence the problem is when you open Tech2win, you need to get three pop up screens once Tech2win start the program.

The first screen will ask you what country, and you select North America.
gm-mdi2-vs-gm-mdi-7

The second pop up will ask you if the device is an MDI 1 or MDI 2, and you select MDI 1.
gm-mdi2-vs-gm-mdi-8

The third pop up screen will ask you if you want to select the USB device (the nano plugged into a USB port), you select it, then it will take you to the Tech2win start screen.
gm-mdi2-vs-gm-mdi-9

So if you open Tech2win, and you don’t get the three pop up screens but just goes directly to tech2win main start screen below instead, then Tech2win is not going to work on your machines win 10. Hence the problem is a glitch in midi and tech2 win interface to select the nano, to begin with (what the pop-up screens are), and if you can’t select the nano via the pop-up screens, tech2win will not connect to the nano in the first place.
gm-mdi2-vs-gm-mdi-10

Again don’t know if this is an AMD verse Intel CPU problem in win 10, but the only laptops that I have seen run Tech2win in windows 10, just happened to be laptops running an AMD CPU instead. And yes, have tried to skin the cat many way with added drivers and compatibility modes, and it’s driver/code line that Win 10 does not have for the Intel CPU (but seems to to have for the AMD CPU that is a carry over from the win 7 days to make the AMD chip work with win 10 instead).

Please enjoy.

Saab 2008 9-3 Aero TTid fault code read with GM Tech2 or Opcom

Have Saab 2008 9-3 Aero TTid. It won’t rev from cold at all for about a minute, then sound to pick up a bit and does fine. It has no power and will pull gently but then when pushed come up with limited performance.
It also says dpf full, it has been apparently from before I got it on the last 2 mots, I have taken it off, cleaned it through and back on, still says it, no fault codes read on my generic obd tool that is quite good with other Saabs so a but stuck to what may be wrong.

GM Tech2 confirmed

Maybe the ECU is stuck in a regen loop and hasn’t been able to complete, or you could have a DPF sensor problem

Need to get the feedback from GM Tech2 to see what the pressure values are and then probably force a regeneration with Tech2 to set a baseline with the ECU.

GM Tech2 can work well with SAAB 9-3.

but you have to have a Saab Card installed which you can buy and do yourself. And if you have a 2003,4 or 5 you will have to have a newer card and a candi adapter and if you have a 06 or above you have to go on line and pay by the hour.
The candi adapter is packed with the GM TECH2 and the card is about 22USD.

Opcom review:

Might be worth trying Opcom as its cheap and plays well with the TID’s not so sure re TTID though.

Opcom will work mostly OK with TTid’s too.

Good luck!

How-to’s of 2006 Corvette M6 BCM fix with GM Tech2?

Car model and year: 2006 Corvette M6

Symptom description:

The new column lock replacement parts have been installed in my 2005 M6 and now I need to instruct the BCM to ignore any odd codes from the column lock as a part of the fix outlined in the TSB.

Tool to use:

GM Tech 2

TIS2000

Guidance:

Will need to pick up a Ac Delco subscription for $40 to start with so you can get access to the new firmware file.

Next, if you don’t have a rs-232 port on your laptop, will need to buy the needed USB cable so you can connect the tech II to your laptop on a USB port.

gm-tech2-do-bcm-fix-for-2006-corvette-m6-1

Now the easy part, Put the tech II into pass through mode, connect it to the car with car in run mode motor off, and bring up TDS on your machine to use SPS.
Now using TDS SPS, run through it until you get to the modules mode, and and select Body control module.

In the firmware selection screen utility to disable the steering control lock in calibration, and flash that it.

This will cover you to see what to select the firmware file to flash in.

FYI, it’s a new file and one that will not be in TIS2000 unless you have an active account that can connect to GM to pull the needed updated firmware file that was just released this year. Most don’t, so TDS for $40 for two years it the cheaper option.

A frustration to be solved:

Got the usb to rs232 cable and the $40 subscription but cannot for the life of me get the laptop to connect to the Tech2 and the car. I am getting messages from the website to restart my programming interface and when I log in and try to add the VIN, the website takes me to a bunch of warning messages and unread alerts. Once I get SPS up and try to run the process after selecting the Tech2 pass through mode and checking the connection, I just get error messages. I have gone the rough the connection and login process several times and followed the connection instructions on SPS exactly. I don’t know if I need to enter the VIN someplace but can’t seem to do that. The Tech2 connects to the car fine so it has to be the web, laptop, tech2 connections that is not happening..

Solution:

When you start SPS the first time, you have to set it up correctly. There are a few programs that you needed to download and install, as well as allowing a few sites to get through, then final Java updates that are needed.

After this and you have sps start up, when you get the first pop in SPS , did you install the Tech II J2534 driver or not?

Lastly, with Tech II connected to the machine, go in device manager and make sure that the tech II is showing up in the list as well.

Also to point out, not sure where you bought your Tech II kit from, but should have come with a candi module from the start that should be in play.

Myself, I just use a VX nano most of the time, since the VX driver works for SPS (don’t have to load either bosch drivers), nor play the extra candi/usb cord since the usb cord that comes with it is all that is needed for SPS programming.
