I came across this plug-and-play vident ilink400 gm scanner last week while looking for 1 to recommend to others. I contacted the seller and she assured me it would also program key fobs for the Hummer H3 2007. I just verified with 2 new fobs I bought on ebay fobs 2/$10 (with tax) shipped. All fobs have to be programmed at the same time(only had 1 oem fob, now 3), and all 3 fobs work perfectly. I have the Snap-off scanners (2 of them) and was unable to program the aftermarket key fobs after multiple attempts.
Select Automatic selection
Identify vehicle information
Select Body Control module
Select Module Setup
Select Program Key Fobs
Read the instruction and program key fobs
* You need to close the doors and windows while programming key fobs. Jump in, close the door, reach under and connect, remember to place your beer in the cup holder, only for a couple minutes.
Went to replace front brakes on another 2006 H3 today.
What was supposed to be a quick pad slap and caliper service turned into and entire front brake replacement . Pads, 2 Calipers and 2 rotors.
As life would have it, it appears the front calipers were not working at all and I am suspecting that 50% of the pistons were seized.
Thankfully this scanner proved its worth again!
A scanner with ABS bleed came in quite handy when I needed it. Didn’t even know my scanner had that feature until I investigated in the owners manual. Lucky my scanner had that ABS feature.
The GM Tech II & SNAP-ON SOLUS scanners cost thousands. I sold all my scanners except 1, I will keep this vident scanner and sell my other.
TO DIYER’S>>> “Get a Scanner that is capable to access all modules!”
Btw, 1 trip to the dealer/auto repair shop, for diagnostics will cost more than a quality scanner!
Also, saves a lot of money for the parts throwers.
