Chrysler 300M ABS Bleeding with DRB III

Here’s something good i found when i bled ABD for my 300M. Very useful…. Hope it works for you guys also.
Complaints i posted in https://300mclub.org/forums/:
I noticed something with my car that I wanted to comment on since “testing” my ABS for the first time this season. After arriving to school just in time for a final I put my foot down hard on the brake while pulling into the gravel lot, which was frozen over just like a skating rink. As I fully anticipated the ABS came on and was effective. However, once I came to a complete stop the pedal went soft and I had to pump it 6 or 7 times before it firmed back up (no jokes please). I have noticed my brake pedal is a little softer than most other LH cars I have driven but I have never noticed variance like this after ABS braking. I am very familiar with braking using ABS in my car and I think this is something abnormal.
Tips I got from user97:
Did the fluid level drop — if it did, then you probably got a leak somewhere and air in the system.
If the fluid level is OK but pedal is softer after ABS engagement, there is a possibility that a valve in the ABS system did not close fully.
In order to provide anti-lock capability, ABS unit has the ability to isolate any wheel from the M/C pressure as well as relieve the pressure into a temporary storage (accumulator). The ABS pump then pumps the excess fluid back into the M/C (hence pedal pulsing).
There is a possibility that the valve on one wheel has not completely closed and allows bleeding into the “accumulator”. As ABS system is not engaged, the pump will not start to empty the accumulator. So you are basically compressing the accumulator spring before any significant brake action on that circuit would commence. Accumulator has a rather small volume, so it would reach capacity pretty quickly. I noticed that there is a significant amount of rust that builds up in the brake fluid as the lines rust from inside due to moisture accumulation. May be a flake of rust got stuck in the valve and provides a miniscule leak into accumulator. ABS monitors state of the valves — anything significant would trigger an ABS fault.
It might be something else, like M/C leaking internally past pistons. But on the off chance, I would exercise ABS a few more times. Valve action would most likely cure the issue if it is the problem.
Search on Youtube and there is some video that illustrates ABS HCU operation
(AFAIK, on our cars ABS controls rear wheels independently rather than as a pair).
Playing with DRB III, you discover how potent ABS system is. When running ABS HCU test, it instructs you to apply pressure to the brake (with engine off/booster bled). Then ABS valves open up, filling up accumulators. It is very impressive — pedal falls to the floor without any resistance. As the next stage of the test, it closes the valves and turns on the pump, which literally pumps the pedal back to the original state. While I knew how ABS worked in general terms, I never realized the degree to which ABS could potentially interfere with normal brake system. No wonder, the unit is designed to be so fail safe, as to prevent such failures (turns itself off at the slightest sign of trouble).
Normally, there should be no need to bleed ABS, as long as MC was never run dry, you should be OK. I would be careful about sucking fluid out of MC — a little is OK, just make sure that neither half gets empty to prevent air injection.
On a side note, for DRB iii, you’d better use VCI Pod, NOT the clone Micropod 2 (even the high quality SP271-C1 cannot work good with DRB emulator. ) look here: http://blog.obdii365.com/2019/01/16/drb3-emulator-worked-with-micropod-2-or-vci-pod/ tested on 300M. VCI Pod says yes but Micropod2 clone cannot work….

How to solve Micropod2 Not Supported wiTECH 2.0 error

Here’s the working solution to Chrysler diagnostic tool wiTech Micropod 2 clone (#SP271-C1) “No longer Supported by wiTech 1.0” error.
Error:
“This vehicle is supported by wiTECH 2.o software. This vehicle is no longer supported by wiTECH 1.0. Please use wiTech 2.0 to service this vehicle. You will return to discovery. ”
witech-v10-error
Solution from obdii365.com engineer:
1.
If you have Chrysler dealer online account, you can update to wiTech 2.0.  Chrysler will ask to pay for the software update.
NOTE: If update to V2.0, you cannot do downgrade anymore. All function need to be done through online account.
2.
If you don’t have online account,
Remove current version V17.04.27, reinstall computer operating system. Then download and install lower version witech 17.03.10.
ps. Our engineers are busy working out the new solution.

But no one holds responsibility of any risk you’ll take when using free DRBIII emulator software.
For security, you’re advised to the tested version sw with your Micropod 2 clone:
DRBIII Emulator Install:

For using DRBIII Emulator software with tools like VCI pod or Micropod II with witech version 14.xx.xx – 17.xx.xx, it depends on your device (clone or orig / old or newer release) and ONLY AFTER that, install DRBIII Emulator.
Watch screenshot.

Here is a step-by-step tutorial of DRBIII emulator on Micropod 2 clone:
DRB III Emulator Review: works on Micropod 2
I managed to make the Enhanced DRB III Emulator work with a micropod 2 clone on V17.04.27 Witech with Windows 7 32 bits all offline mode and no subscription.
First install Witech then install the DRB emulator and then the enhanced one.
find it here : C:\ProgramData\wiTECH\jserver\data\core\stubs
Or use the files provided in first post
Afterwards plug usb in pod then pod in the car turn ignition to on position and at last in the laptop
Open web browser, i used firefox and in the address bar put this and press enter : http://localhost:9876/launchExternalApp?appName=drb_iii_enhanced_emulator&locale=eng_ENG&deviceIp=172.22.22.22
It will launch the enhanced emulator.

Where to get a decent wiTech Micropod 2 clone?

This is for those who are looking for a decent wiTech Micropod 2 China clone.
witech-micropod2
It’s the best quality of Micropod 2 clone SP271-C1, quality as good as VCM2 clone SP177-C1.
BUT, WHY IT IS THE BEST QUALITY MICROPOD 2 FROM CHINA?
First, this Micropod 2 SP271-C1 can be connected to the NETWORK and NEVER LOCKED!
You could use the clone for ONLINE DIAGNOSIS for NEW CHRYSLER CARS.
If you have an account, you also are able to do ONLINE PROGRAMMING.
Second, the wiTech Micropod2 SP271-C1 is confirmed to WORK NO ISSUES WITH DRBIII EMULATOR as well as the original Micropod 2.
This is a test report from our customer @rcompart and it’s verified to get DRBIII with the clone Micropod 2. And, it’s kind of him share the tutorial in detail with you guys.
All can be found here:
With DRBIII emulator, you can have your Micropod 2 for old Chysler the year 1997 – 2004 (2005)
Without DRBIII, Micropod 2 clone only works for Chrysler made after the year 2003
That is, you have a way for old Chrysler with a cloned Micropod 2 unit.
Third, wiTech software is confirmed also no issues with this Micropod2.
It’s tested 100% by real professionals working for obdii365.com
Note: what is DRB3 and what’s wiTech? What’s the main difference 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.
The last, PCB talks a lot
That’s all. Hope it’s helpful to you all.

wiTECH MicroPod II v17.03.10 review: Dodge Avenger 2014 OK

Just ordered a Chinese clone wiTech MicroPod II Chrysler diagnostic tool 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 a blog, I put the site below) and online (logged into TechAuthority). Not sure if it will be blacklisted or the firmware will be upgradeable with the next software release, but for now it works fine.

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