Test reports from users: (thanks for all the input)

2018 Jeep Wrangler:
FOBIK key programming done!
Car: 2018 JEEP WRANGLER 3.5L V6 24V WT ENGINE UPG I W/ESS

2016 Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Fiat:
100% CAN – equipped coverage to 2016 for Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, and Fiat vehicle
Provide basic OBDII diagnosis
Have access to module for Re-Flash Programming, TSBs, wiring diagrams, and repair information.
Btw, wiTech ii supports chrysler and Fiat online programming, but the package from the vendor comes without  fiat software; i have my own micro pod 2 fiat software so that i can installation and programming. )

2015 Grand Cherokee:
Grand Cherokee 2015 RFHUB modify CRC and VIN
It’s really simple with micropod in offline mode . Just replace it …. and restor vehicle config.

2015 Chrysler 200:
The 2015 Chrysler 200, along with other Fiat-based models like the Jeep Renegade, Jeep Cherokee, and Ram Promaster, are all equipped with a rolling PIN Code.

Managed to program fobik with wiTECH app, when the 200 lost all keys

2015 RAM:
I traded in my 2015 RAM for a 2017 and confirmed that the wmicropod clone works with wiTech 17.04 patch level 11 works on my 2017 RAM.

I’ve heard rumblings that they changed things for the 2018 MY – doubt they will work.

2015 WK 3.6L and 2015 DS 5.7L:
I connected it to my 2015 DS and my wife’s 2015 WK with no issues. I disabled the side view mirror tilt in reverse on her WK (only thing she didn’t like about it) and she was thrilled. There are functions to bleed ABS, program tire sizes, etc. There are literally hundreds of sensor readings, dozens of tests, actuators and misc functions that you can perform that seem to be very vehicle specific – which you would expect. Every switch/gadget in the vehicle seems to have a corresponding sensor reading of some kind in the software. The only odd behavior I saw was when I connected to the ABS computer of my DS… the EVIC freaked out and started screaming to service the ABS. Maybe that is a safety feature of some kind so folks don’t go driving while messing with the ABS computer? Powering the vehicle off and on again made the ABS warning go away. I could not find any “PROXI alignment” functions – maybe they don’t apply to my vehicles?

2014 dodge avenger:
One vehicle i tested with: a 2014 dodge avenger …. just fine.
was able to flash a module update and program a new key with the unit.
try the emulator on: DRB III emulator confirmed working.

2010 Charger:
I tested it on a 2010 Charger under witech and works flawlessly

2006 Jeep Liberty:
2006 Jeep Liberty CRD Limited 4X4
I ordered a witech micropod 2 clone with drb3 functionality.
MicroPod II comes with version 17.04.27 software, drb3 support is not installed automatically but can still be found after install. Says it’s good for offline use only, but that should be enough to mess with the TPMS.
All modules except the BCM and ABS computer are still compatible with the DRBIII on the 06’s.

This is a working offline Witech. I just got it connected successfully. Software V17.04.27 was installed on a Windows 7 laptop no problem. It did successfully populate the VIN and can read the ECU.

2004 Dodge:
got a 2004 Dodge pickup and under the emulator worked perfectly.

2003 PT Cruiser:
Basically no other modules other than the Engine, work. I cannot connect to the transmission, ABS, VTSS, SKIM, radio, cluster, etc. But everything in the engine module can be tested, actuated, etc.
Luckily for me, I really only needed the DRBIII to write the Pinion factor for manual transmissions, which is conveniently in the ‘engine’ part which works.
Maybe I really need to invest in an older VCI pod so that everything else works.

Chrysler after 2003:
Micropod 2 with wiTECH only works for Chrysler made after the year 2003

old Chysler 1997 – 2004 (2005):
Micropod 2 work well with DRBIII emulator for old Chysler the year 1997 – 2004 (2005)

Good to know: When to use DRB3 & when to use wiTech?
The DRB3 emulator is part of Chrysler’s Witech software. The Witech software supports two different pass-through devices, The VCI pod which is sold with the Witech system and the Chrysler Starmobile. The DRB3 emulator is a convenience item for dealerships to allow the use of their current witech scan-tool on older non CAN bus vehicles. It is not by any means a cost saving option.

Attachment: Micropod 2 DRB 3 Emulator Car List:
DRB 3 supports Chrysler, Jeep, and Dodge dealerships to service non-CAN based vehicles from 1998-2007

wiTECH VCI Pod Vs wiTech MicroPod 2

wiTECH VCI Pod wins wiTech MicroPod 2 in the built-in DRB III emulator ( which is far more stable). wiTech MicroPod two is claimed to work fine with the DRB III emulator, but not contained inside the package you will need to obtain your very own.

For Programming:
Chrysler wiTech MicroPod 2 wins in on line and offline programming etc.
wiTECH VCI Pod wins in crucial programming.

For sake of security, you will be advised to work with the stable a single wiTECH VCI Pod with built-in DRB III emulator or obtain your own 1 to function with the low-cost wiTech MicroPod 2

What is DRB III emulator?
DRB III Emulator may be the exact scan tool application application made use of in Chrysler, Jeep, and Dodge dealerships to service non-CAN primarily based vehicles from 1998-2007. The DRB III Emulator application application now runs on your personal computer and interfaces with our custom DRB III+ hardware device to allow all the functions on the original Chrysler DRB III Scan Tool and much more. This application package even comes with non-powertrain ECU programming files to allow reflashing all the things from BCMs to sliding door modules.

The best way to set up DRBIII Emulator?
For making use of DRBIII Emulator application with tools like VCI pod or Micropod II with witech version 14.xx.xx – 17.xx.xx, it depends upon your device (clone or orig / old or newer release) and ONLY Right after that, set up DRBIII Emulator.

How to program fobik with wiTECH app

Confirmed! Chrysler wiTech MicroPod 2 clone is able to do online programming to Chrysler including ECU programming and key adding even when all keys are lost. Here you go.

Purpose: Micropod 2 clone programs new key fobik to Chrysler 200 when all keys are lost

Car: 2015 Chrysler 200 (The 2015 Chrysler 200, along with other Fiat-based models like the Jeep Renegade, Jeep Cherokee, and Ram Promaster, are all equipped with a rolling PIN Code.)

What you need:
Locksmith Identification Number (LSID through NASTF)
Proper keys to be programmed
PIN Code
Laptop
MicroPOD II good quality clone or the genuine
wiTECH diagnostic application

Before you begin the programming process, you should the Key Code (key cut code) and Authorized PIN (key programming).

VERY VERY VERY IMPORTANT:

*   You must be online to program the key with OBD2 Scanner Micropod 2 clone.
*   You can pull the PIN Code with OBDSTAR F104 key tool.
*   If you input the wrong code for 3 times, it locks the BCM and you cannot service the vehicle for 24 hours.
*   The key is one-time programmable. Once married to the vehicle it is locked to the car forever. The key can be erased from the car and put back into the same car, but can’t be switched to another car.
*   The placement of the key during initialization is important. It needs to be placed either behind the shifter or in the center console.

How to program fobik with wiTECH app:

Step 1:

Plug the microPOD II adapter into the OBD port and connect the USB cable from the device to your laptop. This wakes the BUS on the car.

Step 2:

Step 3:

4-2

Next select “Miscellaneous Functions,” then “Program Ignition Fobiks.”  At this point, you are prompted to enter the VIN again, followed by the four-digit PIN Code.

Step 4:

4-3

After the four-digit pin is entered you are prompted to hit continue to “Program Ignition FOBIK.” Once you hit continue you must press the UNLOCK button on the FOBIK within 30 seconds (the FOBIK needs to be located near the center console during this procedure).

Step 5:

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.
