witech micropod II HQ Clone Customer Review:
Just ordered a chinese clone MicroPod II and it has been working exactly like an OEM unit. No errors so far and tested functions on 3 different vehicles. It has been confirmed working with unmodified software wiTECH v17.03.10 (downloaded directly from Chrysler). For now it works fine.

I have tested Dodge also. I just used it on a 2014 dodge avenger just fine.

I don’t have experience with Windows XP. This version of Witech works fine on Windows 7 and Windows 10.

I have also uploaded pictures of the internals for those who are curious.

Notes on using KTAG K-TAG ECU Programming Tool

KTAG Programming tool has released to the version V2.11. It specializes in BDM function. What should be noticed when using the K-tag programmer? Following are helpful notes for owners.

NOTE1

Apart from some common protocols, K-TAG ECU programmer also supports BDM MOTOROLA MPC5xx protocol.

NOTE2

K-TAG and KESS V2 share the same software but they are two different products. KESS V2 is able to do OBD function while K-TAG cannot.

NOTE3

If you find out that K-tag can only read from the slave files but not write. Make sure refer to the ECU programming list instruction. Some ECU can be read but not write, like EDC16 Audi.  Others can only be written but not read vice versa.

NOTE4

Tokens are needed when K-TAG does ECU programming function. V2.11 KTAG on OBD2TOOL has Unlimited Tokens, it has a Renew Button, when you run out of tokens, only need press the renew button, then you will have tokens again.

19-1

NOTE5

K-TAG comes with AC adapter in the package. You do not need to buy them separately.

NOTE6

You should Disconnect Internet While Using  ktag v2.23, Otherwise It will get damaged. And do not update K-TAG programmer, if you really want to, you should ship back the Multiplexer, and Pay $240, then the factory will replace a brand new one for you.

NOTE7

Power not connected absolutely or incorrect installation may lead to the error: “Communication error: please check power and connections” (as the picture below)

Learn much about BMW ICOM & ICOM A2

Learn it from an experienced technician.

I consulted ICOM A2 from the professional technician mainly because I read much information in BMW forums telling that the only difference between ICOM A2 & ICOM is the hardware.

Actually, ICOM A is the first generation bmw scanner.

ICOM A is the basic component. In physical terms, it would provide the vehicle diagnostic interface OBD II interface, and provide adaptive integration to the repair shop network interfaces required. Voltage is provided by KL30 by vehicle interface. ICOM A requirement of the electrical operation of a minimum voltage of 8V. Only the supplied voltage exceeds the minimum limit in order to ensure a stable function.

ICOM B is the external ICOM A MOST (Multimedia Transmission System) interface. It is  connected with ICOM A through the USB cable. Voltage is provided by ICOM A through USB. Only when the lowest of the ICOM A supply voltage of 8V, ICOM B would only be ready to run the electrical side of the vehicle through a standard ICOM B MOST interface.

ICOM C is an intelligent interface that allows OBD II socket and BMW round match. As the lengthening of the auxiliary module, it will help to connect ICOM A and non-OBD II vehicle interface. Voltage is provided from the vehicle side of the circular socket by KL30 provided. ICOM C electrical operation provides for a minimum voltage of 8V. KL30 on the voltage sent to the OBD II device on the inside, and thus to Auto Scanner Tool ICOM A power supply. Only when the vehicle’s battery voltage exceeds the minimum limit in order to ensure stability of the two devices interact.

Compared with ICOM A+B+C, BMW ICOM A2+B+C has the some special features. The modified ICOM A2 for vehicles with OBD access receives a significantly more powerful processor and more storage capacity. Robust aluminium case will help to avoid damage when using in harsh environments. To protect the MOST connector, the ICOM B for vehicles with optical MOST access will be equipped with a soft cover made of rubber instead of the former plastic cap. The ICOM C for old series with a diagnostics socket will be additionally equipped with an approx. 20 cm long cable, which facilitates the connection of the ICOM A2 and makes storage in the engine compartment easier.
