All of them have the same function, their differences are :
SP23-B is the best Tech2 with Black Carry box, more stable
SP23-B3 is the SP23-B with carton box and best quality
SP23,SP23-C is the same as SP23-B, it also includes the Black carry box, but comes from another manufacture.
SP23-1 is the most cost effective one,it is with carton box, will help you save much more money.
If you need the most professional Tech2 with best quality, please choose SP23-B ,because it has a black carry box.
If you need cheaper Tech2 with best quality, please choose SP23-B3
If you need a cheaper Tech2 with good quality , please choose SP23-1

Problem: I have a tech II with Saab v148.o card in it. I have tried from Globaltis(Cracked) and TIS 2000 (Hardware key) but cannot gain security access.
Tis2000 gives me the error “cannot connect with security server”
Globaltis just says “error” when trying to gain security access.
I know it is communicating with the tech ii, because during the security check the tech goes from the home screen to “downloading”.
I am using a laptop with a TRENDnet TU-S9 USB to Serial Converter running XP SP3. I have java version 6 update 12 running.
The only think I’ve noticed is the when starting globaltis it states “SAAB Automobile AB v146.00”. I have the 148 SAAB PCIAM card, do not know if that could be affecting it or not.
Customer solution from mhhauto forum:
Here in the forum two types of SAAB v148.000 PCMCIA was shared
One for Tech2 hand held and one cracked for Tech2 Win
In Tech2 hand he’ll only the one for its working
If its the right card uploaded in your tool card then go Security and do it
Try Java v 6.26
Its the best for GlobalTis or Java v7.0
Do you have it or not installed the SAAB v148.000 PCMCIA installed and can you connect to your SAAB car
If not you can find this PCMCIA SAAB v148.000 for Tech2 hand held in the forum ( Not the one for Tech2win ) and use Card writer to flash you PCMCIA or MCE software
use the advise of Mr. techamp (try to re-flash your Tech 2 PCIMA card with Globaltis so your hardware and software match. i believe version on globaltis is 146.00.) and use the SAAB GlobalTis to write your PCMCIA card
Then go to your card and check if the diagnostic is possible
Then connect again the Tech2 with the computer ->power it up ->run the GlobalTis-> use Security
Then you can do any SPS Programming in your car
This is how to fix Tech2 Tech2Win license information “expired or not exist”, including how to send licence to Tech2win from GlobalTIS
The error message and the screenshot:
Tech2Win license information
E667481: Your license has expired or does not exist!
Please perform a software download or a security access to refresh your license.
Meanwhile vehicle communication and CANdi detection is disabled.
Which cable you using Probably with PassThru.
You must send permission (licence) from GlobalTIS to Tech2Win.
Digit after the lock (bottom part screen) show you how many days you have licence to use. If you using GlobalTIS v28-32 licence will be for 1 day (24hr), after expired licence you must send again.
Instruction: how to send licence to Tech2win from GlobalTIS:
(the example from AVDI)
In GlobalTIS click on Security Access (Security).
In GlobalTIS, Security click on the button Start Download. This will run Security Access wizard.
When its main window is displayed click on the button Next.
When the activation finish you will see the following window with information: “Security Access Enabled Security Access type 3”
After a successful security access inTech2Win you can see an open lock on the right side of thestatus bar. Inside the bracket you see the number of days the license is valid.
When you startTech2Win again the security indicator is not displayed as long as no vehicle communication isbeing performed.
During the first communication with a vehicle the license will be checked and theindicator displays either an open or closed lock.

Hope this helps.
This is how to rework GM Tech2 PCB to make Tech2 scan tool clone boot up for use.
Tech II clone not boot up (not turn on)
The issue usually results from the DC to DC converter
This converter is a common internal component for the device GM TECH II
originally these come equipped with the “Meanwell SKE10A-05VT” and “BTCPower 4BE-01T-02”
you cannot longer purchase these items because they are not being manufactured anymore
You actually can find the “Meanwell SKE10A-05” but missing the “VT” and also missing 1 pin for the soldering points.
BEWARE this model dc to dc converter WILL NOT WORK
It may help you power on your device, but the power button among other programming features won’t work.
– Solution worked!
To replace DC to DC converter can avoid unpleasant surprises.
REC10-1205S/H2/M has a 6 pin connections, “Meanwell SKE10A-05VT” and “BTCPower 4BE-01T-02” have a 5 pin connections, is it not a problem when you change the component.
So, sort this out.
This list is for a DC to DC converter with the following specifications:
Output: 5VDC 2.0A
– GM Tech 2 PCB before the DC to DC converter replacement
– Tech2 clone worked gain after the DC to DC converter replacement
– The important note: Tech2 not boot up when the car starts
So, how to fix a reboot Tech 2 when starting the car The square dedicated native voltage Stabilizer, black spots, this is how it is better to feed on, immediately giving to drink block, then the main Board gently giving to drink lagged behind in her legs. By means of wooden toothpicks carefully remove the solder prepared under us new voltage regulator (mornsun VRB1205LD-15W DIP).
