What is the CANdi for?
To answer his question as follows:
Aside from Generic OBD2 P-Code reading and resetting, in order to do any kind of computer work with a Saab you need a Tech 2.
Saab 9-3 (9440) beginning in Model Year 2003 (04 for convertibles) and 9-5 (9600 and 9650) use a ‘CAN’ (Controller Area Network) interface, which requires ‘CANdi’ (CAN diagnostic interface) in order to do anything other than read/clear generic OBD2 codes.
Many of the functions require Security access, which comes by way of TIS (Technical Information System).
Vetronix TechII consists of the Hand-held unit itself, which contains a ‘VCI’ module (vehicle communication interface) Module and a PCMCIA Card, along with the necessary cables/connectors, which includes an external Power Supply of 12v@1500mA.
The PCMCIA Card contains the software program used by Tech2 scan tool.
