I bought one of the cheap knockoffs a couple of years ago.

*very* poor tolerance on the connectors. I was very hard to get the Candi box to plug in.

After I got it working and connected it did work but the display kept going blank. Zero useful response from the vendor other than ship it back for us to look at - which would not be cheap. I wound up pulling it apart to fuss with the internal connectors, which did fix it.

The hardest part was getting the security access to work. Lots of threads on the web on this but was a lot of messing around and you need an ancient laptop to make it work too. It might be possible to do on a virtual machine as well.

If you are in a hurry and not good with computers it will probably be way easier find someone local with a tech2 or clone with security access.

Maybe post where you are and see if there is someone local who wants to help save a Saab and has a tech2.

You will probably need a new CIM too which may be another mess with the supply chain. The experts on here will know but I think you need a used one to be properly divorced with a tech2 from a donor car.
