Can i use the PCMTuner Interface as a Passthru J2534 interface? For Ford ids, Bmw ista, Vw odis, GM GDS2 etc?
Obdii365.com has got the confirmation from PCMTuner team. It is a Yes but you have to test on your side.
It’s a scanmatik 2 pro (SM2). It installs as scanmatik interface so any software that works with scanmatik as passthru will work.
It works with VW Audi, GM, MB, BMW ISTA. PCMTuner team has tested before. But you need to test again.
Our customers made tests with Canclip, Techstream, Odis 7.2, Xentry passthru with VM Diagbox 9 and Vida 2014d. Didn’t check full functionality but for connection was ok. only CanClip required some registry changes. (Check here)
One of our customers test on GM GDS2, it is not a big problem.
VAG ODIS can work with pcm tuner too.
Obdii365.com engineer has tested the pcmtuner with techstream v17.00.020 without issue. You are free to test with Ford ids, Bmw ista, VW o-d-i-s etc. It is a bonus feature. We are not responsible for the damage.
But when you do that, you need to choose pcmtuner driver. So our pcmtuner can start work.
Example: Test PCM Tuner with Toyota Techstream
Here we tested with version 17.00.020
Install PCMTuner driver
Driver can be downloaded on the official website tuner-box.com or here
Run Techstream, if it asks for activation, click No
Go to Setup- VIM Select
Select Interface as SM2-USB (scanmatik 2) and save
Run Techstream patch
We found version 17 is not very stable with pcmtuner interface. Sometimes will report communication errors. You are free to test other versions.
All techstream versions and patch can be downloaded free on our blog. Search and go.
