Some customers or dealers may comment of ghost or phantom touch where random
touch inputs occur with the radio display; and/or the radio display is non-responsive to
touch immediately after having cleaned, wiped, or disinfected the radio display. Either
condition will last the entire ignition cycle. After the radio has gone through a sleep cycle,
the condition would no longer be present.
The cause of the condition may be the presence of liquid or certain physical touch during
the boot-up sequence that can corrupt the display boot-up for that ignition cycle, causing
false touch input or no touch input to be received until the radio can reboot.
Correction Only clean or disinfect the radio display with the radio on. Always dry the display ensuring
no liquid, debris, or streaks remain.

Quick and convenient software updates
Over-the-Air technology allows some software updates for certain vehicle components to be downloaded and installed over a wireless connection. If your vehicle is equipped with this technology, it’s a convenient way to update your vehicle with some of the latest available software.
To obtain the latest electronic controller calibration information for your vehicle, go to https://tis2web.service.gm.com/tis2web and enter the vehicle’s 17 character Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) and select ‘Get CAL ID’.
You can then compare the latest part number with the actual number installed on the vehicle to determine if a reprogram is needed.
The Service Programming System (SPS) application is part of the TIS2Web system. To program an ECU, the SPS application must communicate with the vehicle control modules using the proper J2534 programming interface tool.
The following are the supported interface tools:
The Tech 2 supports model years 1996 and beyond. With the addition of the CAN Diagnostic Interface (CANdi) module, Tech 2 is fully backward compatible with current Tech 2 functionality and operates transparently when diagnosing non-CAN-equipped vehicles.
Servicing the next generation Global A vehicles will require the diagnostic software, GDS2, Global Diagnostic System 2 running on a local PC device while the MDI is connected to the vehicle. The GM MDI is the Global Diagnostic tool for future vehicles starting with Global A vehicles.
The GM MDI was introduced in the fall of 2007 for Pass-Thru programming and offers faster programming speed. It can be used to perform Pass-Thru programming on all vehicles built since 1996 and into the future. Click here to view a list of GDS supported vehicles.
