No RA3 or RA4 Code?

So Monday I took my KL to the dealership to have the transmission update flash. While I was there I told the service tech that I was thinking of upgrading from the 5.0 to the 8.4, but that I needed to know if I had the RA3 or RA4 sales codes. He pecked around on his little ipad for a few minutes then told me that there are no codes for my KL. Do this sound right?

The Uconnect web site should help you figure it out. http://www.driveuconnect.com/system/jeep/
The 5 inch screen is RA2.

If the Codes are on the Master List, your Dealer can add them, and then activate them. These codes seem to appear and then mysteriously disappear only to reappear again. If he only looked at your Jeep, they wouldn't be there because your Jeep doesn't have the 8.4.

So how would I find out which 8.4 to get or what specifically should i ask him to look up? The master list?

I would ask the dealer first which codes are available for your vehicle VIN. I originally bought a used RA3, only to find the dealer only had the sales code for the RA4 radio available for my VIN. I had to swap in an RA4 radio for everything to work. I reccommend seeing the dealer first.

Hey BLKBEARDRED6,

I should be able to look on my end and find this out for you. Can you PM your VIN?

I had no issues upgrading from the 5.0 to 8.4. took the dealer about 30 minutes to do it. Everything worked flawlessly. Unfortunately, I had the auto dim mirror as well as the automatic headlight switch and sensor installed at the time too of which they could not find the code.

The Auto Headlight code for the Journey disappeared after I installed the switch and sensor!

Kori, would you be able to look that up for mine? I recently replaced my 5.0 with 8.4a, works pretty much plug and play, but missing my back up camera and heated seats/steering wheel controls (weirdly enough if I start my Jeep under 40° temp outside the seats and steering wheel automatically turn on) besides that and the odometer blinking, it works perfectly. 2017 Cherokee here, thanks in advance!
