ACDelco and General Motors are releasing a new and enhanced version of the Multiple Diagnostic Interface (MDI 2) for GM vehicles.

MDI 2 is a communications device that manages the transfer of data between a GM vehicle’s Electronic Control Unit (ECU) network and a personal computer. The MDI 2 adds enhanced connectivity, plug-and-play setup, operation during engine cranking, extended temperature range, rugged design and many additional improvements. It also fully complies with the latest SAE J2534 and ISO-22900 standards.

“As automotive technology continues to advance more rapidly than ever, ACDelco service technicians have a new tool at their disposal with the introduction of the GM MDI
2 interface,” said Robert Sanford, general director, ACDelco. “The next-generation interface allows them to diagnose and repair onboard automotive electronic systems in current GM vehicles, as well as future models.”

Although other manufacturers offer similar interface tools, MDI 2 is the only GM supported tool that is fully functional for every 1996 and newer GM vehicle.

For a limited time, the MDI 2 (ACDelco part # EL-52100-AM) is available for a promotional price of $750.53. To learn more or order the MDI 2, call 1-800-GMTOOLS or visit
