GM Mangoose PRO II vs GM MDI

Hello, what’s the main difference of GM Mangoose PRO II cable and GM MDI interface?

How do i know which one i need?

What is GM Mangoose PRO II:

Mongoose Pro GM II interface (either Drewtech Mongoose pro GM II or Chinese Mangoose pro GM II) is a low-cost, high-performance vehicle network interface that connects a laptop directly to the OBD-II connector. … Mongoose vehicle interface. Installation CD with device driver (J2534 compatible)

MongoosePro II can support GM GDS2 & Tech2Win:
Because GDS2 & Tech2Win can support different VCIs (Vehicle Communication Interface) based on D-PDU standard, such as GM MDI, Bosch MVCI, Drewtech CarDAQ plus, Drewtech MongoosePro GM II…, GDS2 can recognize the drivers of interface installed, so that the user can select the interace in the application, and make GDS2 to communicate with the ECUs of vehicle.

Some people even think it the best GM diagnostic tool coz technicians can use GM tools incl. MongoosePro GM to work with GM dealer diagnostic application GDS2, but MongoosePro is the cheapest interface compared with others, the user can save money, moreover the clean design of MongoosePro GM II with electronics protected by cable is a maintenance free solution that allows user to avoid frequent damages on main diagnostic cable and the communication port of interface.

What is GM MDI:

General Motors MDI vehicle communication interface (VCI) for wireless J2534 reprogramming and diagnostics. Note: Requires software subscription to GM SPS (Service Programming System), which must be purchased separately

Used for Pass-Thru programming on all GM vehicles since 1996 and forward. … The MDI manages the transfer of data between a vehicle’s onboard ECU network with an auxiliary CAN bus, and offers faster programming speed using J2534.

The MDI interface can support GM GDS2 & Tech2Win & Global TIS.

GM Mangoose PRO II vs GM MDI:

ALMOST THE SAME:

The Mongoose Pro GM II ALMOST does everything the MDI does. Currently that is:
– Module reflashing with SPS
– Diagnostics with Tech2Win software
– Diagnostics with GDS2 software.

Kind of different!

The GDS2 software package includes the data bus diagnostic tool. Using the data bus diagnostic tool, the MDI will allow you to see voltage levels on the data bus, the Mongoose will not. The Mongoose will run the data bus diagnostic tool, but only partially.

Bosch corporate provides no support for installation and use of the MDI with GM software.
Drew does.

This is the big price difference.

(Solved) John Deere Service Advisor Search Engine Error

This is for anyone when he/she runs the John Deere Service Advisor heavy duty diagnostic software, the system appears error message that the search engine module can not be loaded and then the program ends.

NOTE THAT YOU ARE TRYING ANY TRICK ON YOUR OWN RISK.

Optional solutions:

Solution 1:

Run as system administrator, roll back pc date reactivate using activator Then roll date back to normal date if error still renew once again. Been working for me so far.

Note that, don’t know how long it stay working but works im sure someone will have solution for it soon.

Also advice if doing fresh install roll back the date on pc do the install after then install and activations have been done.
Go to task manager look for the service adviser on have it start its tasks in 2030 :save and then reset your pc date should be good for while

Solution 2:

if you set a date before the lightweightidol license expired, start the lightweightidol service, set the real date and start Advisor, it works.

Solution 3:

start advisor. when error comes with “search engine” Close John Deere SA. afterwards set your PC date to feburary 2015. start SA again (run as administrator). it now comes with error on licence. close SA Again. set pc date back to normal. run SA Again. now it Works.

Solution 4:

The search engine error can be solved.
Set back the date, before the expiry date found in Service ADVISOR\SUIR\license.log (august 14 in my case). Start LightweightIDOL service. Set the real date, and Advisor working again.
I made a batch file to simplify it. To make it work Control Panel/Regional/short date format have to be yyyy-mm-dd or you have to modify batch. Maybe you have to modify ServiceADVISOR.exe path too in the batch. Have to run as administrator.

Solution 5:

I have had the same error with ssearch engine connection in JD SA.
reinstalled it twice, changed system date back and forward, run activator. No result for me.

But actually I found the solution for this issue.

Solution 6:

back date to 08.10.16
install JD SA, restart, activate, mount latest disk you have (05.2016) and install update, for finish get license error, ignore and close, set actualy date, run JD SA -> works fine, install july update

testing today on 3 laptops (Windows 7 and 10)

On a side note: procedure about turning off the updates

don’t know how long it stay working but works im sure someone will have solution for it soon.

Also advice if doing fresh install roll back the date on pc do the install after then install and activations have been done.
goto task manager look for the service adviser on have it start its tasks in 2030 :save and then reset your pc date should be good for while Smile (SO TURN IT OFF IN TASKMANAGER SO IT STARTS 20 30 YEARS FROM NOW!!)

Fresh new installations also work but can be much more complicated sure a patch would be much easier. But it can be done with out a patch so far

In taskmanager I don’t stop any service just put service advisor updater to 2030 to start

also makes sure eculp.ini configurator reads like this

How to use Nexiq with John Deere Service Advisor software

Hi, I have two scanner, John Deere EDL v2 and Nexiq usb link. EDL connection with service advisor is perfect. But with usb link, it doesn’t work. The only way where i have connection with usb link is in GetEcuId.

But finally I got Nexiq usb link to work with Service Advisor software

Here is how to operate…

First, you must reflash your Nexiq with Professional Diagnostic Tools John Deere EDL firmware. When you do that, you\ll got EDL as connected device in device manager.

Find original firmware and save it (backup)
C:\NEXIQ\RP1210A\usblink.bin
In John Deere Service Advisor find EDL.bin
I do not remember where it location …
Copy and rename EDL.bin to usblink.bin
replace original C:\NEXIQ\RP1210A\usblink.bin
Go to C:\NEXIQ\Test
open binload.exe
check checkbox – Enable automatic USB-Link firmware update
open CommCheck.exe
firmware will be update
and Nexiq name will be changed – now EDL-Link

Please take a note, that firmware reflash is possible only with original nexiq or HQ nexiq clone, LQ clones can’t be reflashed, even with newer nexiq firmware

It depends on what clone you have, my clone get all updates,works with OBD volvo,and have no issue.

Second, you must modify standard Nexiq 9 pin deutsch cable. just simply revert positions of CAN lines. There is two pairs of CAN lines. Here is instruction and picture how to do that here

How to Change John Deere Speed Limit with PLD File Editor

Professional Diagnostic Tools John Deere PayLoad (PLD) File Editor – this is Developer level tool, that allows you to change factory parameters in the PLD files using John Deere Service Advisor.

With John Deere PLD File Encryptor/Decryptor you can:

-Decrypt PayLoad (PLD) file to txt/ini format
-Modify PLD file expiration
-Modify PLD factory options such as speed limit (for example change 40 km/h to 50 km/h)
-Adjust PLD file to different product serial
-Encrypt PLD file
-Program controller with modified PLD using Service Advisor
-Support Windows XP

Example: How to change speed limit with  pld files?

Q1:Question about payload files:

I have pld files of my tractor (6330P) 11 in total.

I see in bottom of each files info about my tractor (option, serial number etc)

Question: My goal is up the speed limit from 40km to 50 km. I think I have to change OPTION=3 to OPTION=5, but do I have to edit each 11 pld file?

A1:You were right about the speed limit:
you can change OPTION=3 to OPTION=4 or any other you need.
Speed_30kmh = 1;
Speed_35kmh = 2;
Speed_40kmh = 3;
Speed_50kmh = 4;
Speed_ECO = 5;
Speed_NoiseRed_OOS = 6;

For R models the line is different. ROADSPEEDLIMIT=3 change to ROADSPEEDLIMIT=5 or any other you need.

var RoadSpeedLimit_30 = “1”;
var RoadSpeedLimit_35 = “2”;
var RoadSpeedLimit_3840 = “3”;
var RoadSpeedLimit_40E = “4”;
var RoadSpeedLimit_50 = “5”;
var RoadSpeedLimit_50E = “6”;
var RoadSpeedLimit_55 = “7”;
var RoadSpeedLimit_60 = “8”;
var RoadSpeedLimit_60E = “9”;

After you change it, sometimes you still need to lift the speed manually through the display (depending on the tractor model)

You only need to reprogram transmission controller for that.
If you reprogrammed all of them, some settings might have went to default so you might get up to 5 fault codes that you need to configure with SA.

Q2:Does it work with SA 4.2?
A2:Service Advisor is just a tool to use pld. Pld editor works without SA.

Q3:I have a question about trying to up the power of a 6330 to a 6430. If I compare the engine pld of both tractor they are identical (just the info in the bottom is different) So I don’t know how it could up the power if all the code is the same??

A3:most pld files are made for various models, the info at the bottom determines which part of the pld file will be used for programming. For example:
PRODUCT_MODEL_NO=6115
PERFORMANCE_OPTION_PART_NO=R546973
FACTORY_OPTIONS=RE570443

Q4: Do you have John Deere PLD file editor for sale?

A4: Sorry, we don’t have PLD files. You can search or download from google.
