I need to find the right tool to force exhaust regens. Here is the kicker, this is for four short buses with the LGH, not your regular silverado LML. I tried an edge CTS2 I had, but it didn't work. What others might there be?

Thanks-

The Edge units that are not tuners, just monitors like the CTS2, will not force regens, according to what EDGE told me. So I don't think it's LGH vs LML that is the problem

Any of the decent scan tools on the market should be able to do it.

The snap on scanners will do it, they are costly though.

The CTS2 will not work with vans just trucks.

A $265 chinese clone of the Tech2 will do this and hundreds of other things. Clone works 100% as the original. Had mine for 5+ years. If you have 4 LGH vans, having a GM factory scan tool is a no brainer with all the frequent check engine lights.
For example: US $197.5 21% OFF|For GM Tech2 Card Car Diagnostic Tool Obd2 Scanner Black Tech 2 Scanner For GM For SAAB For OPEL For SUZUKI For ISUZU For Holden|Auto Key Programmers| - AliExpress
Or get them on eBay

This is exactly what you need, make sure it's a IQ2, as this is a great tool to force a re-gen

So is the sale price in the ballpark of the everyday cost of one with a Nexiq sticker ?

the Nexiq unit, you have to purchase the software to do the forced re-gen as an add-on, where the blue-point it comes as standard software when you purchase.
