      Yes, the VCX Nano mimics the Tech2 that a dealerships uses; I connected it to my dadís Silverado and it read every module the truck had installed (and it DOES have ABS)

      EAD15 , thanks for posting information about the VCX Nano. I was thinking about buying a Tech-2 Chinese clone for $300 to $400 and ran across some information about the VCX Nano on an other GM vehicle. From what I read, actual US produced GM cars, this VCX Nano works very well. Your post is the first report the VCX Nano works on an Aveo.

      BTW I bought a new 2008 Aveo-5 in Dec 2007. It had 52K miles on it and I installed a new timing belt kit 2K miles ago and had some sensor correlation errors. I never touched the crankshaft sensor but I did take off the camshaft position sensor when I did the timing belt kit. My cam sprocket's timing marks were perfectly aligned but I much later determined the cam sprocket sensor needed to be mounter just a little closer to the center of the exhaust camshaft (forward) now the engine runs OK.

      I have a question, does the VCX Nano do crankshaft sensor re-learn's like the Tech-2 does. I am guessing it does if it mimics the Tech-2. I watched a Youtube Tech-2 video do a crankshaft relearn in 4 minuets.

      I still have the original TPMS sensors in my 2008. My Aveo friend still has the original battery (always uses a good battery maintainer) in his 2008 Aveo but his TPMS started going bad a year ago.

      Again thanks for posting the VCX Nano information.

      The VCXNano I found out is a generic J2534 pass through interface; the part that actually mimics the Tech2 Software is a genuine piece of GM software called Tech2Win.

      Thanks for the information. I am OK buying tools that I use and that are reasonably priced. I will probably buy a CVXNano. I considered the clone Tec2 for just under $300 but the Nano has a lower price. I have laptop computers, so now I have to figure out the cabling and software.
