The NEXIQ Technologies 124032 USB-Link 2 Connector

124032 Nexiq USB Link 2 with Companion Guide

The NEXIQ Technologies 124032 USB-Link 2 Connector at OBD2TOOL allows PC-to-vehicle connection with an interface compatible with multiple software applications. It will minimize your investment in multiple brand-specific diagnostic interfaces so you can do more tasks with fewer tools.

Perhaps the largest design change is where the cables attach to the NEXIQ USB Link 2. The original USB Link used a standard 15-pin connector, and life was good. There were a ton of aftermarket cables available, all of which sold for under $40. This included replacement 6/9 pin cables, OBDII cables, Volvo 8-pin & 14-pin, Cummins 3-pin, and many more. With the new adapter, Nexiq has changed to a 26-pin connector as shown below. While we can’t find a reason for this on the Nexiq website, we can only assume that this is to handle the new CAN2 protocol standard. Since there are no aftermarket cables available for this, it means the “extra” cables got very expensive — Over $200 for most of them! Until there is a good aftermarket solution, there won’t be much that can be done.

You might laugh at the Rolex comment but the similarities are frightening. When you receive the products, lay the watch and USB-Link out side by side. From a few feet away it looks like you made a great buy. Step closer and that knot will start to tighten in your stomach. You’ll soon realize that maybe this was not a good idea. When you start to really look at the units you will see that the little hands are really just printed on the Rolex face. Now look at your USB-Link and the three led’s that are on the non-U.S. manufactured USB-Link are printed on the sticker.

vt55 ateq OBDII kit includes a universal OBD connector which connects to the vehicle ECU via CANbus and K-line. Tecnicians only need to select the make of the vehicle and press the START button. It is that easy and fast to accurately activate and decode TPMS sensors and display their data or any faults they may have.

What’s the Advantage of Nexiq USB Link 2 ?

2016061503

In early 2015, Nexiq Technologies discontinued the “tried and true” original Heavy Duty Diagnostic Tools Nexiq USB Link. This adapter had been around for around 7 years, and was wildly popular. One of the main reasons that the Nexuq USB Link became so popular was because of their distribution. Nexiq is 100% owned by Snap On, so between the large marketing spends, industry trade shows, and Snap On tool trucks, Nexiq has an unmatched distribution network. The other large source of their distribution comes from formal truck dealerships, as Nexiq is the recommended product for various truck manufacturers such as International, Freightliner, and many others.
