Waiting to hear back from my local service manager, hope they don't give me the runaround when trying to get the sales codes that are available. Since this whole project is balanced on this one little piece, went ahead and told OEM guys to hold shipment. Kind of a shame that they advertise them as plug and play, and didn't add the *disclaimer until after the weeks of contact I've had with them. Don't mind experimenting, but a $1k experiment? lol

I installed the RA4 I ordered, and same issue as before, it says "radio locked, start vehicle". Going to the dealer again this week. I don't have a clue why it is still doing this since I have the RA4 software installed.

The new RA4 radio is hooked up. I get the blue screen when I back up. I plan to shut off the rearview camera feature, as I don't have one. The navigation works, the local streets show in tiny map screen. I have to take it in saturday for the ra4 sales code software flash.

Still locked though.

Sooo close to this being functional.

I was able to get an appointment at the dealer today, and had the software upgraded to the RA4 stuff. The conversion is now complete with a fully functional RA4.

Sure:

1WP091S5AD - Moroccan Sun Bezel (Bronze color)

1WP091SAAD - Silver Bezel

68211963AC - RA4 Touch Screen

68211955AC - RA4, RSD, RS7 Touch Screen (International maybe?)

I also ordered an antenna splitter from oemautopartsco.com because I had the GPS cable as well, so now I can get sxm, and gps through the spliitter. It works with our radios:




Anything else @Amon?

Talking You CAN upgrade from 5.0 to 8.4AN in 2014 Cherokee

I got the RA4 8.4AN from OEM Auto Parts also and installed in my 2014 Latitude upgrading from the 5.0 unconnect system. Installed in about 10 min. Climate and back up cam worked(my Latitude already had the cam) but all other radio functions were locked. Dealer flashed it in 15 minutes to recognize the radio. Everything worked great with ALL features of the radio working as if factory installed. All panel controls, all on screen controls, all steering wheel controls worked normal. The nav even popped up turn by turn on my second screen above the steering wheel. The 5.0 system I had did have sat radio already so the sat antenna was already there for sat and nav.....nav and sat radio work off the same antenna. I like the 8.4AN much better due to the extra Sirius features and the 3D nav map. The radio is also a better radio made by Harmon Kardon. Here's the radio:
