NAFTA Aftermarket sales of WiTECH (for Independent Shops and Individuals)
WiTECH is - or soon will be - available for purchase.
Fleet and Aftermarket Customers:
What is it?
WiTECH is a diagnostic scan tool for newer Chrysler products including 2007-2009 Sprinters.
NCV3 owners that would like to buy a tool like the discontinued StarMOBILE and StarSCAN, but not from someone on a public auction site eBay or from an individual's classified ad such as those found on Craigslist.
Is it the same as DAD?
No, it's Chrysler's latest "dealership scan tool." DAD is not a dealership tool and the currently available version of DAD only works with T1N Sprinters.
Is it the same a DRB-III?
No. WiTECH works on 2007-2009 NAFTA Sprinters. The DRB-III does not work on 2007-2009 NAFTA Sprinters.
Is it the same as StarMOBILE or StarSCAN?
No. It's a replacement system for StarMOBILE and StarSCAN. WiTECH does not replace the DRB-III.
I have a 2007/2008/2009 Sprinter. Do I need it?
No. It's expensive (low four figures) and not worth the purchase to an average individual.
Why would I want WiTECH?
You don't want your Sprinter touched by anyone other than yourself. You want access to better diagnostics than a Scanguage or other consumer tool. You want to bleed your brake system yourself and actuate all the valves in the ABS system. You want to verify your transmission temperature according to the sensor input to the Transmisssion Control Module. You want to do everything in the NAFTA Chrysler VB (NCV3 Sprinter) service manual that requires "a scan tool." For more infomation see www.dcctools.com
