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.

READ EVERYTHING HERE… BEFORE DOING ANYTHING… This software described at the very top section of this Link is UNTESTED and requires following the other links and Instructions to avoid encountering any Security Issues. I would suggest that you obtain an Extra PCMCIA Inexpensive Card available from obdii365.com Vendors that is pre-programmed with the 33.004 Version of the Software …and overwrite IT using your TIS2000 Laptop and GM Tech2 Clone with this New Software Version for Testing Purposes …rather than risk your existing Original PCMCIA Card with the overwrite.
