WiTech MicroPod 2 Customer Questions & Answers
Question:wiTech Micropod2 Clone Failed to Register Mopar, is there any solution ?
Chrysler tech authority for subscriptions use to work fine with clone micro-pod2 for programming with witech1 17.04 . Now Chrysler has changed from the normal site to now mopartsp.com that wants any obd tool registered and warning wiTECH 2.0 requires Mopar’s 2017 secure microPod II (WSP-31560 or above). The device you attempted to register to your account does not meet this criteria.
Ever since witech/tech authority moved to MoparTSP, micropod clones don’t work for ECU programming. This is down to all clones sharing the same serial number meaning you cannot get around the device registration. The process to register and configure the software is difficult if you are not in USA.
There is a limited range of approved devices, any other legit J2534 devices might work, might not.
With cda6 offline its one option to do ecu programming.
How to work online micropod2 through witech 17.04.27?
-First you need to get a TechAuthority subscription, directly from TechAuthority or from AEtools (You can order a 3-day subscription).
-Then open the Witech program and when the Micropod 2 is detected click the “Next” button at the right bottom in the screen.
-In the next screen you have to enter your license credentials but the first option is only for dealers: username, password and dealer code.
-To use the TechAuthority account you need to click in the tab “change server” and select “Techauthority”, then you only need your username and passsword, not dealer code needed because TechAuthority access is intended for aftermarket or independent workshops.
With TechAuthority access we can use all functions in Witech 17.04.27 for diagnostics, calibrations and programming. We can Update or reprogram the PCM, TCM, TIPM… also we can program a new key or make “Restore vehicle options”, “Reset Ecu” and many other calibrations like “Learn ETC”, “proxy alignment”…, also we can install a new module and make a full flash or configuration. All of this is only possible for vehicles until 2017, for vehicles from 2018+ we need to use Witech 2.0.
Does wiTech 2.0 still have a DRB III emulator?
The DRB 3 Emulator is no longer included with the wiTECH software, it was removed a few years ago.
You can download DRB3 from third-party resources and test with micropod2 clones. Security is unknown.
or go for wiTech VCI Pod which has DRBIII emulator included in default.
will be possible to work online?
Yes, tested by many. Online subscription to TechAuthority works with both USB and WIFI MicroPod 2.
No difference if the Micropod 2 is clone or genuine, both of them work perfectly for diagnostics and programming, online or offline, with TechAuthority account.
Does wiTech Micropod2 Clone Work on Chrysler 2020 2021?
2018 + FCA cars have new ecu SGW which need to be unlocked online WITECH 2.0 for diagnostic session or need to bypass SGW. wiTECH 1.0 will not be able to dial with 2018+ FCA models. wiTECH 2.0 is mandatory.
There are 2 Micrpod II clone interfaces available:
One is without WiFi. This one with wiTech 1.0 supports Chrysler till 2017/some 2018. No possible to work on Chrysler 2018 or newer
If you have clone with serial number change 000000 will not work because the serial number is lower then recommendation per witech2 must have new Micropod2 number starting 31xxxx must higher able can using witech 2 diag application.
You can use witech1 17.04.027 but you need pay some set up this version pass FCA check up when you launch witech1 application ..BUT you can’t log in dealer connect if you have log in techauthority ID not dealer connect tech ID & dealer codes.
