About After-Sales Questions and Answers 
Q1: I bought one GM TECH2 and the TIS2000 software can’t be installed and no identification, what's the problem?
A1: If the TIS2000 you are trying to install is contained in the GM TECH2 software, then it is useless to install TIS2000 software. To program electronic control unit, I advice you buy an extra TIS2000 to work with GM tech2.
Q2: After receiving GM TECH2, I got some errors.
A2: If it is Blue screen, just replace the Blue Screen Chip. If it is not the problem of Blue screen, please send us the self-test report to check where the problem is; have no idea on how to operate self test? Refer the self-test manual at GM TECH2 “technical support / service”.
Q3: GM TECH2 one button doesn’t work how to fix?
A3: If you have new version GM tech2, there are two ways to solve: 
1) we send you a new button to replace; 
2) please send back to repair. If you have old version GM tech2 installed with the newest software, the button maybe won’t work.
Q4: When I use GM TECH2 for the second times, the tool starts to smoke, and my car voltage become 14V from 12V, what’s the matter?
A4: Please follow the correct operation steps: before diagnosing, turn on the ignition and then connect the GM TECH2 with the car, when the car starts you’d better test the voltage, because during this process a part of cars’ voltage will reach up to 24V or more, especially the car which has a poor contact of electrical ground.
