If you want to program the Drivers Door Module (DDM) on your SAAB yourself, you will need a dealer tool, GM Tech2 scanner with TIS2000 software, which can be purchased online to get the job done. My Tech2 scan tool is from a China at the price of $319. If you already have a Tech II, you can follow the step-by-step guide below and get the DDM programmed.
Equipment you will need:
GM Tech 2 diagnostic scanner
32MB PCMCIA Card for SAAB
TIS2000 software (Without this you would not be able to add anything!)
Step 1. Connect GM Tech2 to the OBD port of your SAAB and open the scanner and then go to the main menu.
Step 2. Select “F0 Diagnostics” from the main menu.
Step 3. Select the year of your car. Here I select “2004”.
Step 4. Select model of your car. Here I select “SAAB 9-3 Sport (9440)”.
Step 5. Select “F7: Add/ Remove” in the next page.
Step 6. Select”F1: Control Modules”.
Step 7. Select “DDM” control module in the next page.
Step 8. Select “Add”.
Step 9. Select “Checking Security Access Working” and then turn ignition key to “ON” position.
Step 10. Select “Adding Unit”. Wait the system process to 100% and then drive a test.
This details out what exactly is needed to add/change RPO option codes to existing 97+ Corvettes using GM Tech2 scan tool. This scanner can be purchased from here for around $300. This is helpful on 2001+ ZO6s to add the T82 Automatic Headlamp operation at night feature as well as adding the tire pressure monitoring function. Both of which are built into the ZO6s Body Control Module (BCM) and just need to be “turned on” in order to work. The Automatic headlamp function usually requires no parts to be purchased but the tire pressure monitoring system needs to have sensors installed on all 4 tires. These can be found in the classified section of corvetteforum.com usually for around $200.00. These instructions will also help owners of F45 real time dampening suspension option convert to regular shocks that do not have sensors built in. Right now people are paying upwards of $200.00 for emulators that plug into the wiring harness to trick the BCM. A simple solution is to just go into the BCM function and toggle off the F45 suspension options. No codes will be set and the car will not go into reduced engine power mode.
Step 1: Obtain TECH2 scanner
Step 2: Startup TECH2
Step 3: Enter Diagnostics menu
Step4: Enter year of car
Step5: Enter Passenger Car menu
Step 6: Select Body from the menu
Step 7: Select Y body from menu
Step 8: Select body style from menu (Coupe/Sedan is FRC/ZO6)
Step 9: Select transmission type
Step 10: Enter body control module menu for adding/deleting option codes such as automatic headlamps,F45 suspension. If your interested in adding the tire pressure monitoring system please skip to Step 15 below.
Step 11: Enter Special Functions menu
Step 12: Enter BCM RPO Reprogram
Step 13: Enter cars country of origin
Step 14: Toggle functions on and off. The asterisk next to the option code indicates this function has been turned on. Note that the Automatic and Manual HVAC controls are both turned on. This is normal and should be ignored. Go ahead and hit the save option button when your done and power off the TECH2.
Setting up tire pressure monitoring
Step 15: Enter Remote function actuation menu
Step 16: Enter special functions menu
Step 17: Enter set options menu
Step 18: Enter tire pressure monitor menu
Step 19: Toggle function on and hit save options and power off TECH2
When you finished go ahead and train your tire pressure sensors through the driver information center.
If you need to run TIS2000 software on PC, you have to connect GM Tech2 scanner using the RS232 cable with the DB9 Adapter to a serial COM Port at the PC. If you cannot get the Tech 2 scan tool connect to PC or fail to communication well, the best way is to connect the RS232-DB9 adapter correctly and then run a RS232 self test.
GM Tech2 gm diagnostic scanner comes with several connectors, including a RS232 cable and RS232-DB9 adapter (mark red circle below)
1) Follow the cable pinout to connect the cable correctly
Tech2 DB9-JR45 RS232 cable adapter pinout
BD-9 to RJ45
2) Then do a RS232 cable self test
How to do Tech 2 RS232 self test?
1. Power up the Tech2. Connect RS232 cable with Tech II scanner main unit.
2. Come to main menu. Select F4:Tool Options
3. Select F3: Self Test
4. Follow the system prompts:
Before running the Tech 2 self test:
CANdi interface must not be connected
ALDL loopback should be connected
Failure to follow these instructions may invalidate the self test
Press EXIT to continue
5. Select F3: Selectable main PCB
6. Select F2:RS232 LoopBack
7. Tech2 RS232 cable self test has passed
If RS232 cable passes self test, the commutation between Tech2 scanner and PC is well built.
It is possible to get daytime running time disabled manually. But the problem can be easily settled with a scanner. GM Tech2 scanner is ultimate best choice for GM group.
