    Default what is tech 2 ??

    seen a few posts on some threads that mention tech 2.


    what the hell is it, and the most important thing if my car has to go to the dealer for something will it a) be done automatically or would i have to ask for it and b) cost me anything or is it done under warranty

    im assuming its a software thing but what does it entail



    thanks Graeme

    Tech 2 is the system the dealers use to diagnose problems with the vecs/siggys.
    The plug is under the front ashtray When they plug their equipment into it they can read the fault codes stored on the ecu. Any changes/updates can also be done from here.

    Tech2 is a computer 'tablet' that the dealers use to 'talk' to your car and access your cars systems..

    They will use it to check for fault codes, update softare etc.. this they will do at every service...in theory..

    Well put Tony - I was in the throws of saying:

    If you remove the ashtray from in front of your gearstick, you will see a plug underneath. This is where they can plug in a computer that then talks to the ECU and other areas of your car. There are loads of bit that it controls and Tech2 is what VX call their system!!

    I dare say that someone has a better explanation for what it is but thats mine!!

    i had to have my car "tech2'ed" after putting larger tyres on as the rolling circumfrence would have put the trip computer out of sync.......

    There's a plug underneath the astray, this is where they plug in a computer which gets all the info from the car's computer i.e when you get the spanner light on your dash the onbard computer stores a code & the dealers computer reads the codes to identify the faults. If you buy a flip key for instance the dealer computer is plugged into the car to program the key to work with you car. Thats tech 2 mate, hope it makes sence
