IO Terminal - Purchased :)

Arsalan Owner/Technician District of Columbia Posted   Latest   Edited  

Hello DN.

I have been thinking about buying a IO Terminal since I do a lot of used Global A ECM/PCM especially in the area I am, If anyone wants to sell it or know a place I can purchase one please let me know and I will really appreciate the help.

If any trainings are available or someone wiling to spare the time on teaching me the basics I'm happy to pay for there times.

I can be reached at my cell …

Michael, Yes, these tools are nice to have access to. I recently had a Saab, no availability for an ecm except used. The tech2 wouldn't transfer or correct the security. I found a free program on the net called TrionicCanflash with detailed instructions, I was able to clone the original. Saved me.

Mike Witmer, I don't want to make this an advertisement so for question A) I will just say that there are not any subscriptions associated with the tool. Once a module is purchased, it is yours. Question B) We are doing classes a little differently now. If you would like a class in the area we can arrange that. Just get 10 - 15 interested in the class, arrange a location and we will come. You…

Jessie Mair, We will likely not do EEPROM classes in Utah. We will however be doing electrical and diagnostics classes in the Ogden area soon.

That is to bad, but I understand it is hard to find training in Utah let alone advanced training.
