When I try to select the Service Programming option using the V148.000 card, the Tech II hangs. This has been found by other users, including unclemiltie:

If I run V43.000 card, Tech II works and I can retrieve car info. Anyone have any info or advice?

The two cards in the Tech II:

Press F1 or scroll down to SPS and hit enter, same result, Tech II no longer does anything except power off button works.

No problem retrieving data using V43.00 card (this was a second or third run through, so it already had my car's data loaded):

Remove both cards and put them in opposite places.

And....swapping the two cards makes no difference. V148.000 still hangs on SPS menu choice, appears to work otherwise (I didn't hook it up to my car to try out). V43.000 still is helpful and has my previous info in memory when I go to SPS on that card.


We're a little stymied as well on the TIS2000 software, which I will post elsewhere.

Okay, we had a club member come by on Saturday with a clone Tech II and the 148.000 card that came with it. That combination had the same behaviour--it froze on selecting SPS. As a result, we did not try swapping cards between the devices.


Where can we get a reliable 148.000? Can someone verify that the Tech II can run SPS using that image?

Hmm. The first ACC that I did SPS on was in pass-through mode. I did that weeks ago, and I think it would have been done using the 148.000 card. Then I was told that Tech II remote is a much faster way to program, and wanted to try that.

So, until I get a chance to verify this (Tech II is being used by someone else at the moment), I'd go with 148.000 card being OK in pass-through mode, but not working properly in Tech II remote mode.

Our 43.000 card worked fine for remote SPS for my 2003 9-5. I suspect that it would work for any 9-5 through 2005. The NG9-3, or the later 9-5 that requires CanDI, I would suppose not.

43.000 is for 900 and 9000.
There is no 9-5 to select.

Try it. :cool:

WIS covers this in a technical bulletin that's part of the 0. General section.

In 43.000 SPS, 9-3 and 9-5 are vehicle options. The years only go up to 2002. However it will correctly retrieve 2003 VIN and equipment list. And it will program at least the ACC using Tech II remote mode.
