1.  Using Error: 

I used the wiTech MicroPod 2 V17.04.27 software and instructions and reinstalled multiple times to make sure it was setup as instructed.

I have tried this on a 2005 Chrysler PT Cruiser and a 2003 Dodge Durango.

When going to check the Engine Diagnostics, it gives the error “NO RESPONSE from PCM” as shown below:

The device you use is DRB3 emulator. DRB3 only can support Chrysler vehicles till year 2004. It’s also not very stable to use. It’s better to choose wiTECH VCI Pod.


2. Register Error:

1).A message prompts “Device with serial number WSP-*** is not registered. Please check the knowledge base to determine how to register a device” when registering wiTech MicroPod 2.

2).WiTech Micropod2 red light flashes microprocessor 1 is unresponsive


I was ready to connect the wiTECH2 Micropod 2 interface to diagnose Chrysler 300M, but after i connected the adapter with laptop, the MicroPod2 indicator light flashed and software prompted error message “microprocessor 1 is unresponsive”. What’s the problem?

Possible cause:
1).Software is not compatible with hardware/firmware.

We have several wiTECH2 Micropod 2 Chrysler diagnostic scan tools clone (SP271-C, SP271-B, SP271), they are made by different manufacturer. Software cannot be mixed used. i.e SP271-C wiTech software can work with SP271-C Micropod II firmware. Please use the default software CD in package.

 2).Incorrect connection 
Please follow the correct steps to connect the micropod2
-Connect wiTech Micropod2 to vehicle first
-If the red indicator light turn on, then connect wiTech to laptop
-Open wiTech software (if software detect newer wiTech version, it will run an upgrade.Wait the upgrade completed. If it does not prompt to update software to newer version, just run software)
-If you connect to laptop first (power by USB cable) and run software immediately, software and firmware will automatically synchronous upgrade and that will lead to the firmware failure. Must connect the device to vehicle!

-If the red indicator flashes, the firmware is damaged. You have to send it back to repair.
