How to install/use Mongoose Pro GM 2 cable

Here is tutorial of step-by-step how to install Mangoose Pro GM II Cable and how to use.

 

Note: here we’re talking about Mongoose Pro GM 2 china clone (also name Mangoose)

 

Here we go:

How to install Mangoose Pro GM 2 software:

  1. Install VMware-player-6.0.6-2700073.exe

mongoose-gm-install-11

  1. copy “GM Ⅱ” to harddisk.
  2. open “XP_EN” with VMware Playermongoose-gm-install-22

How to install GDS2 Tech2Win for Mongoose Pro GM 2:

 

Here are my photos!

 

Step 1, open Tech2Win, use the default image.

 

Step 2, open GlobalTIS for Opel v32 and select security access. Get security access. Tech2Win license will refresh and it will unlock Tech2Win so it will communicate with the car. Close Tech2Win.

 

Step 3, plug in the Mongoose Pro II GM and plug the other end into the car.

 

Step 4, open Tech2Win. Select the Saab BIN that you set up (do this on your own)

Step 5, Tech2Win prompts you to use the Mongoose, so, use the Mongoose.

Step 6, you will see the Saab 9.250 NAO splash screen. Notice the license expiration says <1 instead of 0, and you will not see any “circle with a line through it” through the Tech2 picture, the MDI picture, etc, because Tech2Win is unlocked.

 

 

Step 7, get some security access

Step 8, wait for Tech2Win to do its thing, and give you the prompt:

 

mangoose-pro-gm-2-tech2win-install-4

Step 9, use TIS2000 to get security access. Turn “off” Tech2Win using the power button in the GUI, which basically resets the software. Fire up TIS2000 and select Get Security Access. Note, you may have to adjust the baud on the serial connection, I had to drop mine a bit before things played nicely. Also, unplug the Mongoose while you are doing all this nonsense.

Step 10, BOOM you got yourself some security access. If you got this far, celebrate!

Step 11, plug the Mongoose cable back in, hit the power button and restart Tech2Win. You are good to go, you have full security access. Feel free to do whatever you want! Here is me jacking around with some of the diagnostics. I used this same software to re-program the BCM on my 2008 9-3 CV. It works.

Step 12, SPS! Close out all this crap and open GlobalTIS for Saab. Open SPS. Plug in Mongoose. Basically, it just works. It will show up in the list as an available adapter. Follow the directions. Here are some pictures of me updating the ECU for my 2007 9-3 2.0T to eliminate the idle dip problem I occasionally experienced.

Most of what I wrote omits some tips and tricks but was designed to show, yes, this tool works, its compatible 100% with 2003+ 9-3SS for sure, and I love it. I don’t know how I put up with the Chinese junk. No more time bombs. Plus this setup works for my 2007 Yukon XL Denali. If I buy a car with the Global A electrical platform, the Mongoose is certified to work with GDSII also! So it’s pretty much future proofed.

 

Here are some more random photos of my setup and of the Mongoose plugged in and…Mongoosing?

My recommendation? If you are the least bit handy with computers, buy this thing and never look back.

 

Cheers!

Ford Manager 2.4.73.37 (2.3.85.7): Tested 100% with VCM II & real cars

Yes! The new Ford Manager 2.4.73.37 is working only copy/paste the Ford Manager files over the Mazda Manger one as before.

 

I tired and works.

If you have a genuine/HQ cloned interface and want to use Mazda ids fully then right now it is better to stick with 2.3.85.7

mazda-ids-104-01

And yes i tested in real car also.

 

I did a DPF Static Reeneration in a Mazda 3 (BK) 2007

Works like a charm. All Function that I used in that car worked well

If I will see any problems I will be back to 2.3.85.7

But now I wanted to keep it as it is because I don’t wanna chane always the firmware between Ford IDS and Mazda IDS

I have a HQ Ford VCM II not a Mazda VCM II

 

Btw. I use ALL the Ford Manager installer. ( as it’s installed in Ford IDS partition )

VCM2 IDS USB device, language, license, drive issues (Advice/Suggestion)

Here are some advice and suggestion for your VCMII IDS tool ,when you meet issues like these below:

V100 VCM2 for Ford Diagnostic Tool with WIFI Wireless Card Best Quality  OBDexpress


- try with V86 versión, when I plug in the USB give me this error "unknown USB device"...

- download VMWare V93 from this fórums it is on Russian and I can't change the language...

- try to install V92 like I saw on cardcodereaders through Youtube...

But even I put 31/10/2014 it says "no valid license"

note: I have format several times and tried with W7 Ultimate, W7 starter, W7 Pro... and always the same. Never works even if I always have in the BIOS the same date: October 31th of 2014

I cant install a XP because I have no drivers for it.

 

Advice & Suggestion:

IDS saves information to the master boot record of the hard drive, just reinstalling windows won't fix it. Either purchase a genuine license or you have to delete the hard drive partitions to rebuild the MBR and then reinstall windows. It is much easier to acquire VMWare Workstation 10 / 11 to install a copy of Windows 7 that you will use solely for IDS as you can make backup copies in case you goof up something.

What date you use is irrelevant as long as you continue to use the same date. Start with IDS version 91 -> upgrade to 94 (Use the VCM II firmware from this version) -> upgrade to 96 (now the newest IDS is version 109). You can start with an older IDS version if you want the old calibration catalogs, using this method will require you to download any calibration files you need if you plan to do any module programming. Additionally, if you don't purchase a valid license and are using a trial your IDS cannot acquire these files automatically over the internet.

 

Maybe you could have a try with IDS software from Chinese. They help IDS without expiration and no license issues. Sometimes, if you have good luck, remote tech support is available also, help such as remote installation, language setup and the like
