WiTech Micropod2 red light flashes microprocessor 1 is unresponsive solution:
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?
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 CONNCT THE DEVICE TO VEHICLE.
If the red indicator flashes, the firmware is damaged. You have to send it back to repair.
