Question: Can I use VXDIAG VCX SE as a Passthru device for Chrysler wiTech 2.0?
Some people tested working with witech 2.0. Some J2534 devices failed to connect 2018+ security gateway models via wiTech 2.0, i.e old Autel Maxiflash as it cannot do CAN FD protocol. So does vxdiag. So better test on -2018 FCA models. Free to test by your side.
Here are tips for setting up j2534 passthru devices with wiTech 2.0.
Getting approval for your device: You PC is what is serialized and what actually gets approved. It is not a combination of PC and J2534. It is the PC alone. Once the PC is approved, you can use ANY J2534 device that has installed drivers to ATTEMPT to use the WiTECH 2.0 software.
Only a handful of devices are validated for use, many other devices will work, even old Bosch “Green Box” Mastertech has performed flashes on late model Chryslers…. where you run into trouble is vehicles with 3 and 4 CAN networks, the Bosch unit does not support that many CAN channels, thus it was not communicating with entire legs of the vehicles network.
On to system requirements:
Most new-ish laptops with windows 10 will meet the requirements for tech support to help you when you are in a pickle, but windows 7 does function. IF you only intend to use the partition or computer for 2010+ WiTECH 2.0 software, and not the included Legacy 2009 and older programmer, NO JAVA IS NEEDED at all! The very specific version of Java is only needed if files are to be downloaded.
