SNAPSHOT FUNCTIONS
Snapshot Functions
The Snapshot Upload/Display function of TIS 2 Web provides a means for viewing scan tool snapshot data, as well as
freeze frame and capture info data on the PC. This data can be analyzed in a variety of ways to determine when and
where a fault may have occurred.
Using the Snapshot display feature involves three steps:
1. Capture snapshot(s) with the scan tool.
2. Upload the snapshot(s) to the terminal.
3. View the snapshot(s) using the TIS Snapshot Upload/Display function.
The following procedures describe how to capture, upload and view a snapshot using TIS 2 Web software.
Capturing a Snapshot of the Vehicle Data Stream
1. Connect the Tech 2 to the vehicle Data Link Connector (DLC) as shown in Figure 26.
2. Power up the Tech 2 and press the ENTER key at the title screen (Figure 14).
3. From the Main Menu select F0: Diagnostics (Figure 27).
4. Enter all vehicle information as requested by the scan tool (powertrain, body, chassis).
5. From the application menu, select F3: Snapshot.
• Select the desired system to snapshot (e.g. Engine, Transmission, ATC).
• Select the desired data list (e.g. Engine Data 1, Engine Data 2, EGR Data).
• Select trigger type and trigger point (see page 16). Choices may be dependent upon the application.

SNAPSHOT FUNCTIONS
Capturing a Snapshot steps continued...
Trigger Type (F0 - F3 function keys) determines how the snapshot is triggered:
F0: Manual Trigger will trigger a snapshot when you press the Trigger soft key.
F1: Any Code will trigger a snapshot whenever any current trouble code is stored. This event
occurs when the first code is stored in the vehicle controller memory.
F2: Single Code will trigger a snapshot when a user specified trouble code is stored.
Trigger Point (F4 - F6 function keys) is the exact point at which the trouble code (fault) or manual
trigger occurs within the snapshot period. It helps to know the trigger point when you are looking
for changes in data parameters. Trigger point may be set for:
F4: Beginning causes the Tech 2 to start recording information from the trigger point until
snapshot storage is full. This choice is useful if the fault is predictable in nature.
F5: Center is the most commonly used trigger point because it stores information leading up to
and following the trigger point. This function allows comparison of events before, during, and
after a fault.
F6: End sets the trigger point at the end of the snapshot recording and therefore shows only
information leading up to and including the fault.
6. Press the Record Snapshot soft key. The Tech 2 screen will display the flashing message “standby.”
• When the fault occurs, press the Trigger soft key
• The Tech 2 will display the message “triggered.”
• Allow the scan tool to record a sufficient amount of data, then press Exit to store the snapshot data.
• Press the Continue soft key when the snapshot trigger type screen is displayed.
7. Exit to the Main Menu, then power down and disconnect the Tech 2 from the vehicle.

Displaying Diagnostic Trouble Codes
The View Diagnostic Trouble Code Information mode displays all relevant trouble code information for each individual
frame. Note that when replaying a snapshot, every frame of the snapshot may not have a stored DTC.
To use the DTC display feature:
1. Select the View DTC Information icon on the Snapshot toolbar. A box will appear near the top of the screen listing
DTC information (see Figure 33). The following information is provided:
• The first line indicates how many codes are in the frame—e.g. “1 of 2,” “2 of 2,” etc. This is not the total number of
DTCs stored in the entire snapshot, just in the individual frame being displayed.
• Below the first line is the number and name of the DTC.
• Diagnostic test status tells whether the test ran and whether it passed or failed.
• DTC status lists the DTC information. This is the status of the tests that were run and the related DTC messages
that can be viewed by the technician. This information is based only on the DTC information listed, since some
DTC information will not be available on all applications.
2. If more than one DTC is set for a frame, scroll bars will appear at the right side of the DTC window. To view other
DTCs (Figure 33), click-and-drag the scroll box or use the scroll arrows.

3. To determine exactly when a DTC sets during a snapshot, use the “Play Forward” and “Play in
Reverse” selections to play the snapshot with the DTC window still in view. DTC information will
continue to display for all the frames during which the DTC was set.
• This information can be useful for diagnosing DTCs by displaying related data parameters at the
point in time when the code was set.
TIP
The View DTC Information icon will be highlighted if a code was set during a napshot.
Select the View DTC Information icon. This will show any and all DTCs set during the
snapshot, since DTCs that set are stored for the duration of the snapshot.
4. When a frame is reached for which a diagnostic trouble code does not exist, the DTC window will
display a blank.
TIP
In most snapshots, DTCs set near the trigger frame. To quickly locate the frame where
a DTC occurred, click on the “Trigger Frame” selection. Then use the “Forward One
Frame” or “Reverse One Frame” selections to view the frames just before and after the
trigger frame. Chances are the DTC will appear within these frames. If not, continue
viewing the snapshot using the “Play Forward” or “Play in Reverse” selections.

Diagnostic Trouble Code Change Mode
This feature allows the user to move from trouble code to trouble code within the snapshot. If you select
the View DTC Information icon when in a snapshot, the Snapshot application will display a split screen.
This screen will consist of the DTC information on the upper half of the screen and the parameter data
display on the lower half of the screen (Figure 33).
If the DTC was not set in the selected frame of the snapshot, the DTC information will not display until the
snapshot is advanced to the first frame in which the DTC was set. Select the Diagnostic Trouble Code
Change icon (Figure 34) to advance to the first frame of the DTC. In DTC change mode, selecting the
forward or reverse arrows will move the application to only the frames in which a DTC was set.

Displaying Graphs
Graph display modes give you the ability to view snapshot parameters in graph form. This allows you to
see how a parameter functions over time. It also allows easy visual comparison of up to six parameters at
a single time. The two graph display modes are three-graph and six-graph (Figure 31).
Three-Graph Display
To access the three-graph display mode:
1. Click the Display Graph (three) icon (Figure 35).
2. Click on the first graph icon at the top of the Graph Parameters window (Figure 36). Parameter from the list in the
lower portion of the box. The parameter name will appear next to the first graph icon. (Figure 37)
3. Repeat this procedure for the second and third graphs.
IMPORTANT
When selecting parameters to be graphed, it is important to consider the values used to measure the
parameter, and to correctly plot these on the graphs. This is done in the “Min Y Axis Value” and “Max Y
Axis Value” fields. These may need to be adjusted to reflect the normal range of values for the
parameter — for example, 0 to 5 volts for MAP sensor.

selected parameter will appear at the top of the data list, above a “lock line” (Figure 42).
2. To add other parameters, follow the same procedure. The “locked” parameters can then be viewed
together to compare their data values. Parameters can also be locked by double-clicking on them in
the data list.
3. To remove an item from the locked list, select it, then click the Lock/Unlock Parameters icon. The item
will be removed from the list.
TIP
Display modes can be used in various combinations to provide the most useful diagnostic
capability. It is even possible to view DTC information, locked parameters, and graphed
parameters simultaneously (Figure 43). In multi-display mode, replay selections can be used, as
previously described, to move through the snapshot.

SNAPSHOT FUNCTIONS
Viewing Capture Info Data
Capture Info is a feature that allows the Tech 2 to retrieve DTCs, Freeze Frame and Failure Records from the vehicle’s
control module. This is a different function than snapshot display. Capture Info files consist of only one frame of data,
whereas snapshots typically contain multiple frames of data.
When Capture Info is selected, the scan tool displays a menu selection that allows data from the control module to be
stored to the Tech 2 PCMCIA card, or to refresh the PCMCIA card with new data from a control module.
IMPORTANT
A single code may be counted as two different codes in a Capture Info file if it exists both in freeze frame and
failure records (Figure 44).
To view DTCs, freeze frame or failure record data through TIS 2 Web software:
1. Use the Tech 2 Capture Info function to retrieve data from a vehicle’s control module.
2. Connect the Tech 2 to the computer (Figure 6) and go to the Tech 2 start-up screen (Figure 14).
3. Launch TIS 2 Web.
4. Select the Snapshot Upload/Display application.

5. Click the “Upload from Handheld” icon on the toolbar (Figure 28).
• Select Tech 2, then click OK.
• Select Capture Data from upload selection menu, then click OK.
6. The data will display on screen. The top of the screen lists DTCs that were stored in the control module. The lower
portion of the screen lists captured freeze frame or failure record data for the selected DTC.
• Notice that the navigation selections at the bottom of the screen are gray (cannot be selected) because the data
record consists of only one frame.
7. If more than one DTC is present, selecting a DTC in the list changes the data list to match that DTC.
8. Capture Info can be stored and printed by the PC.
9. The user may toggle on/off the DTC(s) at the top of the screen in order to view only the freeze frame or fail record
data by selecting the Show/Hide Failure Record Information icon (Figure 45) on the toolbar. This icon is only active
for the Capture Info Data function.

The file name is dependent on how the email was saved and sent:
If the email is sent directly after uploading the Snapshot from the scan tool the file will be snapshot.sur. Files that
are not renamed when being saved will appear as a number, being the last digit representing how many Shapshots
have been saved to the PC.
To view the Snapshot in TIS 2 Web:
Save the field to C:\documents and Settings\”logon”\snapshot\data.
After the file is saved to the hard drive open Snapshot then select Open an existing File
Printing a Snapshot
Printing can be accomplished in three ways:
1. Using the “Print” command in the File menu (Figure 48),
2. Using the “Print” icon on the snapshot toolbar (Figure 49).

SERVICE PROGRAMMING SYSTEM
Service Programming System (SPS)
The Service Programming System (SPS) updates the flash calibration files that are stored in a vehicle onboard
controller (e.g. PCM, ABS, VTD). The calibration file custom-tailors a module to a certain vehicle. The calibration file
contains data for things such as spark curves and fuel control. When troubleshooting a driveability condition,
diagnosis may call for reprogramming the controller with newer calibration information to correct a customer concern.
The ECM/PCM controller can generally use one type of serial communications:
• CAN – GM LAN (recent communications application currently available only on a few limited applications)
NOTE:
Starting with 2007 vehicles all SPS programming will be Pass-Thru.
NOTICE
Prior to performing SPS, it is important to heed the following precautions:
• Make sure the vehicle battery is fully charged. Battery voltage for SPS should be between 12 and 14
volts. Only an approved battery charger such as the Midtronics PSC 300 should be used to maintain
proper voltage.
• Using an outdated software version could damage vehicle modules. The Tech 2 and the terminal must
have the latest software.
• Make sure the cable connections are secure. A disconnected cable could cause controller failure.
• If you use a laptop computer for pass-thru programming, ensure that the power supply is properly connected.
• If powered by AC and the power cord becomes disconnected, it could interrupt programming and cause
damage to the control module. If the laptop is operating from its internal power source (batteries), then
make sure it is adequately charged to complete the SPS process.
