Default DRBII Instructions and Questions, SRS light fix

EDIT: I made a webpage to summarize this thread:
http://www.wrenchmonkey.com/Webpages/DRB.html

Download SRS diagnostic manual! http://www.wrenchmonkey.com/Images/SRS%20Manual/SRS.pdf

I got irritated trying to deal with dealer to get my SRS light reset $100 a pop to have dealer check codes. after 2 failed tries I finally got pissed and bought a DRBII off Ebay to reset it. There is not a lot of information the DRB II on the internet. I learned some hard lessions and I thought I would share them with everyone. Eventually I will post a webpage. I now own 2 DRBIIs but I don't have all the adpaters to use one of them.

IF you want to diagnose the Airbag (SRS) system on your car you will need a DRBII (Chrysler version) or a MUTTII (Mitsubishi version) The DRBII is easier to find so that is all I have experience with.

A DRBII is a special dealer only diagnostic tool that was not sold to the general public. Now that newer versions are available you can often find them on EBay. If you buy from EBay you need to make sure you get EVERY part you need.

1. DRBII Main control Box. This is a 4.5x 8” box with digital display.
2. DRB Cartridge for your car. The best cartridge is a “Super Cartridge” A Super Cartridge covers multiple years and cars. A very desirable cartridge in the blue 91-93 Super Cartridge. This will work for All 91-93 Chrysler, Dodge Stealth 3000GT and DSMs. Most DRBIIs are sold with no cartridges at all, or a cartage that has very limited usage so be carefull.
3. MMC Adapter. This is a 3x6” box with wiring harnesses that allow a DRBII to connect to a DSM, 3000GT or Stealth. Many DRBII are Not sold with this adapter but I have found the adapter sold separately
4. Optional Co-Pilot. This is a data recorder that is installed in car. When intermittent problem occurs you hit a button to record. A DRBII is needed to download the stored data.
5. Optional is 94 Y-cable. This harness is needed to connect to 94 & 95 DSM, 3000GTs and Stealths. Please Note: If you do not have a 94 compatible cartridge this is useless.

Default Re: DRBII Instructions and Questions, SRS light fix

I paid $370 for a DRBII that did not have the supercard, so I couldn't use it.
I paid $300 for 2nd DRBII that did not have the Mitsubishi adapters
The Mitsubishi adapters go for about $60 if you are luccky and a Supercard can cost as much as $100.

Average it all out and you can expect to pay over $400 for a used DRBII
The prices vary ALOT on ebay I have seen them go for $600.

This sounds like a good thing for a group of people to pile their money together to get. SRS lights are common enough that it would sure save some money.

Yesterday I was told if you connect a volt meter to the number 1 pin ( use the black, neg wire) and to the number 12 pin (use the red + wire) and with the ignition in the on position, you can get the code by counting the spikes of the meter ..... then use the code book ..... I have not tried this and was only told about it yesterday .... and only just caught you thread...

The only way to reset a SRS light is with a DRBII DRBIII, MUTTII, MUTTIII or maybe one of the new diagnostic tools that cost about $4000.

Anybody that tells you otherwise doesn't know what they are talking about.

The DRBII is REALLY easy to use

I have the 94/95 cable, but not the cartridge. SO if you find one, let me know and I can possibly test it out to see if it actually works.
