MDI & Tech 2:
Where they fit in your service toolbox today and how that's changing for the future
service speed and revenues with a complementary tool
To help you get the best return for your tool investment and maximize your revenues by
servicing more vehicles in less time, we want to make sure you understand how and when to
use the new GM multiple diagnostic Interface (MDI) in combination with your tech 2.
First, a brief review on the MDI.
MDI: Increase reprogramming speed 20-70% and get ready to service new
The new GM MDI has been approved as an essential dealer tool, as follows:
For pass-through programming of electronic control units on all vehicles built since 1996
and future model releases. The MDI is between 20% and 70% faster than Tech 2.For
example, on a new Tahoe hybrid with 7 ECUS, it would normally take 2 full hours to
reprogram. But, with MDI the process is completed in just 45 minutes. That's a 64%
difference and means you could service 10vehicles rather than 4in an 8-hour day! The
potential to increase revenues is dramatic
Also remember the MDI allows a single technician to wirelessly view multiple MDIS from a single
PC. This means a technician is no longer tied to the constraints of cable access points within a
service bay-further increasing productivity and profitability.
the MDI is a valuable addition to your toolbox that will improve your profitability now!
MDI is the only full-spectrum diagnostic and reprogramming tool capable of servicing new Delta
and Epsilon vehicles (with auxiliary CAN bus that cannot be serviced by Tech2).Below is the list
of vehicles being delivered this year that will rely exclusively on an MDI for service. Also note
that diagnostic software upgrades are planned for release later this year for additional new
2009 and 2010 models.
Mode year Vehicle Region SORP MDI needed
2009 Chevrolet HHR Europe Q4-2008 Now
2009 Opel/Vauxhall Insignia Europe Q4-2008 Now
2009 Daewoo Lacetti Korea Q4-2008 Now
2009 Buick Regal China Q4-2008 Now
2009 Chevrolet Cruze China Q4-2009 November, 2008
2009 Chevrolet Camaro NA Q1-2009 November, 2008
2009 Buick LaCross/Allure NA Q1-2009 November, 2008
the MDI is the ¬exclusive tool for servicing future vehicles-we encourage
you to purchase at least one MDI as soon as possible so you are ready to service
Also note that the MDI is priced at half the price of a Tech 2.
KEY POINT: Not only is MDI a much faster reprogramming tool and the exclusive tool
for new models, it is far more economical than earlier technology.
Now for tips on getting a better return return on your investment in the Tech 2.
Essential for Years to Come
Many have assumed that the MKI will immediately replace the Tech 2, but that is not the case.
The Tech 2 remains an essential tool for many vehicles through at least the 2012 model year.lt
will also continue to be needed to diagnose all vehicles from previous model years. As such, it
remains a very valuable diagnostic tool and, with the launch of the MDL as a faster
reprogramming tool, the Tech 2 can be dedicated to diagnostic applications.
Free up your Tech 2 by dedicating one or more MDIs To reprogramming
tasks. You'll get a bigger return on that tool Investment and increase service
throughput yet another way.
