Default whats GST mode (forenza)

so i have the option to buy a suzuki SDT scan tool (the suzuki factory scan tool)

and i noticed it says: that it excludes forenza, reno and verona.
then later it says: forenza/reno and verona GST mode only.

so im assuming only partial support for those 3?? im really only interested in buying if it can connect to the srs (airbag) ecu to read and clear codes in a 2006 forenza.

Not sure what GST mode is exactly, but these 3 models are not real Suzuki developed cars, they are re-badged GM/Daewoo products which would explain why the Suzuki tool does not have full support for them. You may have better luck using something from GM such as the Tech 2.

GST is generic OBD2. No OBD1 enhanced data or controls and no support for anything other than engine ECU or PCM. Is it a genuine tool? most are poor quality clones, a genuine US market SDT may have support tool for the Forenza, Reno or Verona.

yeah it is a genuine tool. the documentation with it was from 2008 (that i referenced in the first post) so its possible the software had been upgraded to add full support.


anyway after more research i think ive found a great deal on a chinese clone tech 2 with suzuki card that is supposed to have full support for the 2006 forenza.


***note*** the same documentation i referenced in the first post actually mentioned GM Tech2 for the 3 models not supported by the sdt, again that documentation was official, but OLD (things may have changed since 2008)

The $305 Tech2 clone review : General Chat

the first post in the link above had a link to where to buy. i did some searching at aliexpress and found ones without case starting around $260 shipped, and ones with carrying case for around $305 shipped. included in the price was 1 card (your choice of several.. i did the suzuki one)

i ordered it 2 days ago and DHL tracking already has it at US customs in Cincinnati Ohio.

wow DHL got it here fast!! (i thought customs would take awhile)

anyway i got it and it worked awesome, cleared the airbag code and no more airbag light on the dash


i found several interesting things over the last few weeks when dealing with this, but i think ill start a new post. maybe it will help someone else out with a similar problem.

Ok so I know you need a GM tech2 to gain access to all of the setting inside the reno forenza. I also know a tech2 is a few grand. I also know a nice tidbit that if you have the correct plugins for the tech 2 your able to completely program the reno forenza ECU. This means being able to tune the OEM ECU for bolt one and engine upgrades such as cams, pistons, turbos. What this means is that you now have complete control over the ecu setting for RPM, air/fuel and the like. So what this ultimately means is you can upgrade your engine, program the OEM ECU, and not have any of those pesky codes pop that will make you fail inspection. Sorry for my rambling and quick messy explanation but I don't know anyone who's ordered one of these units before lol. My question is how much control do you actually have over the car? Do you have access to the fuel maps? I've heard a
Few bad things about these cloned machines but if you have access to the ECU maps it might be worth buying one. Let me know!
