I recently purchased a clone GM Tech2 as I hate the idea of paying a dealer ridiculous $ to perform tasks on my late model GM vehicles that used to be customer serviceable in previous generation models (e.g. programming key FOB’s).
Having recently successfully used the Tech2 on both my 2011 Grandsport and my 2014 Yukon Denali.
Yup, you read that right. Nada/zero/zilch/the big goose egg.
So first and foremost, the disclaimer: I am not a GM or ASE certified mechanic and I don’t play one on TV but I have spun wrenches on every motorcycle and car I have ever owned (including my two current Grandsports) and to be quite frank you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to use the GM Tech2 for simple programming tasks as the interface is extremely intuitive. If I don’t know how to do perform a specific configuration then between Google and YouTube I’m betting someone has already posted instructions and/or we can figure it out.
So if you need an OEM radio TheftLock code removed, C5 VATS disabled, key FOB’s programmed, activate A/C afterblow, F55 mag-ride option delete or any other basic service that the dealer charges stupid $ for then better use GM tech2.
Thanks RC4G member’s review on corvetteforum.com forum.
Final question, which clone do he have?
