Can I use Tech 2 for OBD1

TECH 2 scan tools work with GMs from 1991- 2013

OBD1 is everything before ’96!

If the menu is in the Tech2 for ’91 then that hints that all you would need is the correct 16 – 12 connector/adapter and also likely a provision to power it with the adapter. OBD2 is self-powered from the DLC, OBD1 ain’t. ’94 & ’95 would work without the adapter, they’re 16 pin DLC with pin 16 being B+.

I’ve used my “REAL” Tech 2 Scan Tool with ’95 but not Corvette, compared to my Tech1 on the same car I did have some contradictory comparisons that I couldn’t explain. I don’t recall them now but it did confuse me for a time. I put a JY ECM in a ’95 ParkAvenue for a fellow to resale and it ran well so I worried NOT about it.

FYI, There is a Tech1A OBD1 to OBD2 interface that lets the Tech1a work fine with 96.

I have done it multiple times, you MUST have a Tech1A with correct mass storage module to install a new PCM or CCM to program key fob resistance, mileage , vin info ,LT1 or LT5. You have 100 miles after install to program the module or it becomes non programmable. (this pertains to new or reman module, used module is just what you get and is non programmable)
Edit: The manual says it should work with the OBD I connector:
SECTION VI
TROUBLESHOOTING
2005 Tech 2 User’s Guide VI – 15
IMPORTANT

If not properly grounded, the CANdi module will appear to be defective when it is not. The Professional Diagnostic Tool CANdi module will fail due to improper grounding if you use the 16-pin DLC (J-1962) connector and power the
Tech 2 from an AC/DC power supply. The adapter you use must have a GM part number. Although PVI
adapters are similar to GM adapters, they will not work with the CANdi module.

CANdi Module Troubleshooting Guide

If a CANdi module is not functioning properly, please perform the following tests:

Make sure the CANdi module is properly grounded by connecting to a vehicle or by using the 12-pin

ALDL connector, which has the signal and chassis ground shorted.

John Deere Service Advisor in Use

If you haven’t heard about John Deere Service Advisor yet, we explain that this is an innovative product for electronic systems, which are integrated into John Deere’s equipment for agriculture, forestry and constructing. Speaking in plain language, it is a software application suitable for all Windows versions and helping machines operators notice problems timely and fix the equipment they use in work. In the following article, we will get acquainted with the Advisor’s functions. For the review, we have chosen Edition 5.2.

John-Deere-Service-Advisor-in-Use

Guidelines for Work with the Application

Work with the Service Advisor installed on your hard drive promises to be a pleasure for you. It has got a simple colorful interface, which is easy to understand even if you see it for the first time. Aiming at simplifying your tasks more than that, we have prepared a step-by-step guide presented below.

*   When the program has been already open, a user needs to enter a search query, PIN or a model. At the same time, Tasks or Offline Mode can be chosen. We will show you how to work with the latter one.

*   Opting for an offline mode, you will see the search line on the top. For instance, it is 8430. After that, the full information about this model appears on the screen. In our case it reads, John Deere row-crop tractors. You can leave space for filling in the PIN blank and skip to the button “Launch New Content”.

*   Then in the upper right corner click on the icon “Home”, which will turn you back to the main page where you should press on “Manuals”. In the left column, you can select the following:

*   Troubleshooting and Testing
*   Repair
*   Operation manual
*   Machine connections
*   Technical manual
*   Technical guide to selecting components.

In this example, we go to troubleshooting and testing.

*   The program takes you to the Contents section where you can read general information, get knowledge of the error codes and signs of malfunctions. If you choose “Systems Diagnostics”, the list for testing will fall out. For example, you are interested in diagnostics of the control unit system. The Advisor tests it automatically giving you information whether there are any problems with it. If yes, go to the Repair section to find out recommendations on troubleshooting.

Where to Buy Software

John Deere is an American company, but it works for the whole agricultural world. So it has official dealers overseas. Coming to a dealer point in your country is the best way to purchase a licensed software application. This guarantees that your Service Advisor is original, which means that you receive 10 years of 24/7 access to currently existing services, all updates turning out in this period and get in touch with the company’s managers as a client.

At this website you will learn more information on the software for diagnostics and repair of Heavy Duty Scanner John Deere tractors, combines, sprayers, cutters, shredders, etc.

Service Advisor Users

People often take the Service Advisor as a complicated computer software, which is impossible to work with, if a person does not have special education. The truth is that the application was created for official John Deere equipment dealers and other professionals in agriculture. On the other hand, the program is not complicated in use, so it can be bought by agricultural enterprises for corporate needs. There are huge possibilities for training operators and giving them more freedom during their work.

So, any person might be a potential user of the software.
