DRB III Emulator definition:

DRB III Emulator is the exact scan tool software application used in Chrysler, Jeep, and Dodge dealerships to service non-CAN based vehicles from 1998-2007.


Installation Notes:

In order to install the Enhanced DRB III Emulator, you must have the wiTECH Diagnostic Application (wiTECH 1.0) installed as well as all supporting software.


The wiTECH 1.0 can be downloaded and installed on a Windows PC from DealerCONNECT (DealerCONNECT > Service > wiTECH Information (Under the SERVICE TOOLS & EQUIPMENT section) > Legacy Tools > wiTECH Software Installer).


In order to install DRB III Enhanced Emulator you must have a microPod II Device that has Entitlements for the Enhanced version. This is different that those for the wiTECH Diagnostic Application (wiTECH 1.0) or the Original DRB III Emulator. This microPod II Device will only work with the wiTECH Diagnostic Application (wiTECH 1.0) and Enhanced DRB III Emulator.


Steps to DRB3 Emulator on Win7/Win10:

  1. Connect the microPod II device that will be used with Enhanced DRB III Emulator to a Windows computer that has the wiTECH Diagnostic Application (wiTECH 1.0) either through the USB-microUSB cable or by plugging the microPod II device into a vehicle’s OBDII port and having both the microPod II device and the computer on the same wireless network.


  1. Use the following link to add a wireless profile to the microPod II, if not already done:


  1. Open the wiTECH Diagnostic Application (wiTECH 1.0) and look for the microPod II device in the connection wizard.


  1. In the example below, the microPod II device name is “wiTECH 1.0 microPod.” It has been discovered over Wi-Fi and USB.



  1. Once the device is found in the connection wizard, click on the name.


  1. Clicking on the name will cause the “Launch DRB III Enhanced” button to appear to the left of the “Next” button in the bottom right corner.


  1. If the button appears with “Launch DRB III” with no “Enhanced”, you will need to contact the Help Desk to get the Enhanced entitlements added.


  1. Click the “Launch DRB III Enhanced” button and accept the EULA that is presented. A warning will be presented indicating that Enhanced DRB III Emulator is not installed. Press “OK” to start the installation process.


  1. The wiTECH Diagnostic Application (wiTECH 1.0) will now close and the “Enhanced DRB III Emulator Stub” will begin to install. Follow through any dialog prompts to continue the installation.


10.With the “Enhanced DRB III Emulator Stub” installed, select the check box for “Enhanced DRB III Emulator Application vx.xx.xxxx” and click the “Install” button in the bottom right corner of the window.


11.Follow through any dialog prompts to complete installation. Once installation has completed, open the wiTECH Diagnostic Application and select the microPOD II device using the Connection Wizard. Click the “Launch DRB III Enhanced” to open the Enhanced DRB III Emulator. The emulator will appear as shown below if you are connected to a vehicle.


Note: You must be connected to a vehicle in order to launch the DRB III Enhanced Emulator.

Btw, wiTech ii supports chrysler and Fiat online programming, however the package in the vendor comes without fiat application; i have my own micro pod two fiat application to ensure that i can installation and programming. )

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

2015 Chrysler 200:
The 2015 Chrysler 200, together 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 functions with wiTech 17.04 patch level 11 functions on my 2017 RAM.
I’ve heard rumblings that they changed issues for the 2018 MY – doubt they are going to function.

2015 WK 3.6L and 2015 DS 5.7L:
I connected it to my 2015 DS and my wife’s 2015 WK with no challenges. I disabled the side view mirror tilt in reverse on her WK (only issue she didn’t like about it) and she was thrilled. You’ll find functions to bleed ABS, system tire sizes, etc. There are actually hundreds of sensor readings, dozens of tests, actuators and misc functions that you can perform that appear to become pretty car particular – which you would anticipate. Every single switch/gadget in the vehicle appears to have a corresponding sensor reading of some kind in the software program. The only odd behavior I saw was when I connected for the ABS laptop or computer of my DS… the EVIC freaked out and began screaming to service the ABS. Perhaps that may be a safety feature of some type so people don’t go driving even though messing with all the ABS computer? Powering the car off and on once more made the ABS warning go away. I couldn’t come across any “PROXI alignment” functions – maybe they do not apply to my automobiles?

2014 dodge avenger:
One car i tested with: a 2014 dodge avenger …. just fine.
was able to flash a module update and plan a brand new essential with the unit.
try the emulator on: DRB III emulator confirmed operating.

2010 Charger:
I tested it on a 2010 Charger beneath witech and operates 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 just isn’t installed automatically but can nevertheless be found following install. Says it’s great for offline use only, but that ought to be sufficient to mess using the TPMS.
All modules except the BCM and ABS personal computer are still compatible together with the DRBIII on the 06’s.
This can be a operating offline Witech. I just got it connected effectively. Software program V17.04.27 was installed on a Windows 7 laptop no trouble. It did effectively populate the VIN and can study the ECU.

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

2003 PT Cruiser:
Basically no other modules other than the Engine, function. I cannot connect towards the transmission, ABS, VTSS, SKIM, radio, cluster, and so forth. But every little thing within the engine module may be tested, actuated, etc.
Fortunately for me, I definitely only required the DRBIII to create the Pinion element for manual transmissions, which is conveniently inside the ‘engine’ part which operates.
Maybe I truly need to have to invest in an older VCI pod so that everything else operates.

Chrysler after 2003:
Micropod two with wiTECH only performs for Chrysler produced right after the year 2003

old Chysler 1997 – 2004 (2005):
Micropod two operate properly with DRBIII emulator for old Chysler the year 1997 – 2004 (2005)

Good to understand: When to work with DRB3 & when to work with wiTech?
The DRB3 emulator is aspect of Chrysler’s Witech computer software. The Witech computer software supports two different pass-through devices, The VCI pod which is sold together 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 autos. It isn’t by any means a cost saving option.

miocropod 2 Costomer Feedback

I bought my  micropod 2 clone from, same as what Radius bought. It came with a hard drive that is barely working. Its making beeping sounds and clicking and on its very last legs. I was able to make a backup though and there is actually a second partition on it with an Acronis backup image already created from 8/15/17. Anyway I will have to contact the seller and arrange for some discount since the hard drive is virtually useless.

Anyway, the main thing is that the Car Diagnostic Tool miocropod 2 had the required circuits etc, and the DRB3 works after following most of Radius’s instructions. I had to change it up since I did follow his instructions exactly, but the flexnet update didn’t work, and so it failed and the drb3 did not work.

In order to get it to work, I had to change the date. In the beginning when installing the stubs, his directions had already instructed you to change the date to 1/1/17, then navigate to the folder and install the three stubs. Reboot. Try to use flexnet connect to update but it failed. Windows update also errored because of the wrong date. So I changed the date to the correct date. Now flexnet connect worked and I was able to update K-line and enhanced drb3. As soon as both had updated, I disconnected internet and then changed date back to 1/1/17. Then I followed the rest of the instructions. Plugged in the pod, waited for windows to see it and make the virtual network, and then launched wiTech. Launched enhanced drb3. Success!! It works!!

So the instructions are good, but at least for me, I had to fix the date to the correct date to get the flexnet updates. Once updated, disconnect the internet and change the date back to 1/1/17 for it to work.

The device I purchased is an OFFLINE ONLY version of micropod 2, but I only use it for diagnostics, not for programming as I do not have a TechAuthority account. So if you need one for online use this is not the unit to buy.

These are the steps I followed to get Enhanced DRB III Emulator to work:

1: Make a backup copy of the partition from the hard drive included with the micropod!
2: Install HDD in laptop
3: Set date to 01/01/17 BEFORE booting from laptop
4: Boot to HDD
5: Allow windows to install drivers, etc, as needed for your laptop and reboot as needed.
6: Once all of that is done, do NOT run WiTech yet!
7: Turn OFF internet!
8: Navigate to C:\ProgramData\wiTECH\jserver\data\core\stubs
9: Install DRB Emulator stub
10: Install DRB Enhanced emulator stub
11: Install K-Line stub
12: Reboot computer
13: Set date back to current date
14: ALLOW internet access
15: Run Flexnet software updater. Do NOT update WiTech!!!
16: Flexnet will find updates for enhanced DRB and K-Line
17: Install K-Line update first
18: Install Enhanced update next.
19: Turn date back to 01/01/17!
20: Once updates and downloaded and installed, turn OFF internet and NEVER turn on again!
21: Reboot computer
22: Attach Micropod to car. When green LED turns on, turn on car ignition
23: Attach USB cable to PC and Micropod
24: When Windows is done installing drivers, etc, you should show a network connection in the tool tray with no internet access
25: Run Wi-Tech
26: Press “Launch DRB III” button in lower right hand corner
27: Accept EULA
28: DRB Emulator will launch.
29: Enjoy.

I already tested it on a 2010 Charger under witech and works flawlessly, and got a 2004 Dodge pickup and under the emulator worked perfectly. I already called my locksmith, who drives an 04 Sprinter to try it as well.
