    Great instruction video however I do have a question? You mentioned that you would have to take the vehicle to the dealership to have them add the sales code so everything plays nice together. The radio and its functions seemed to work after you did the install so is taking it to the dealer really necessary? The dealers I've talked with say there is no way to add the code because it was not a factory option.

    • Brady Radcliffe

      MotorCity Mechanic is there any possible way to find your vehicles sales code yourself or is this something only the dealer can tell you? I bought my JL used and I am unsure if I could find this information from the original dealer.

    • MotorCity Mechanic
      MotorCity Mechanic  10 hari yang lalu +1

      I have access to the Chrysler website where I can change the sales code. The dealer you spoke with is incorrect......that vehicle did come with the 8.4 on certain trim levels and the trim bezel for that size used in the video was an oem bezel meaning that they make it for that radio from the factory. They just sound mis-informed. Its all about knowing what sales codes are needed to be changed. Thanks for the feedback on the video and for the question Russ. Make sure to subscribe.

      I dont have any videos on that. I would check with infotainment.com to see what they offer and where they recommend mounting it in case its different then the oem original location. Thanks for the kind words about the video and for watching. Make sure to subscribe.

    After browsing the comments, I did not notice if this question was answered already, so I will ask it (again?):
    After upgrading, did you notice whether or not the Off-Road pages feature of the 8.4 was present?
    Also, great video, I liked and subscribed! Looking forward to browsing your channel.

      That might be an option. Hate to have you drive so far for something that takes about 30 minutes to do. I am working on possibly getting my own shop so that I can focus more on the videos and do some repairs as well to help pay the bills. Where are you located? Curious because the thought of a shop would require people like yourself wanting to drive a bit for me to do the repairs. Always wonder how many would do that and why lol?

    I'd be interested in a comparision between the 8.4 OEM radio and the Alpine i209-WRA-JL radio. Anything in the works on that?

    • MotorCity Mechanic
      MotorCity Mechanic  5 bulan yang lalu

      I dont have access to that radio unless someone wants to send me one to try out lol. I personally like the OEM look of the stock radios....they look part of the dash. All the aftermarket radios stick out like a sore thumb....not sure why they dont all go to a flat touch screen with no buttons.......it would be simpler and look the same as OEM.

  • Grade A Chip

    So does this 8.4 unit have more power output as far as watts! Since the 5.0 system gas a low wattage speaker system...And most 8.4 have the 9 speaker system or Alpine option......

    Any idea why the back up camera would not be working?

    • MotorCity Mechanic
      MotorCity Mechanic  6 bulan yang lalu

      Back up camera issues can be radio or camera. Typically we dont see any wiring issues. They dont have a real good way for us to diag them....usually we plug in a known good camera to be sure and based off of that replace with either the camera or the radio.

    • MotorCity Mechanic
      MotorCity Mechanic  6 bulan yang lalu

      It falls into a grey area. If their screen doesnt show one they always say no it cant but its the aftermarket companies or people that try it that find out if it really can or cant. Thanks for watching Mark and make sure to subscribe.

    good vid...quick question, dont think I heard you mentioned this in the vid...I've seen other videos on this upgrade and they said you would need to go to the dealer after the install to re-program the brains of the Jeep to know you have a new radio (8.4 from a 5)...does this not need to happen?

  • Joshua sthilaire

    how can i get a dealership to perform the sales code addition? every one of them that i call says they cant do it even when i offer to pay!

    • MotorCity Mechanic
      MotorCity Mechanic  11 bulan yang lalu

      Sounds like they arent familiar with the process and how its done. The issue will be finding out what sales codes will be needed to make it work. It can be trial and error. Otherwise not much I can tell you about getting them to take on the job. Not sure who you are talking to....maybe a service writer or service manager that hasnt done it before instead of a tech that has. We have to do it for add on Mopar items like integrated trailer brakes so it wouldnt be much different then that. Sorry they are giving you the run around.

    what about for audiophiles do they fave say 6 rca outs so you can put in a aftermarket sub amp and speaker amp?. and what is the sound quality like and equalizer is it a basic 3 channel or multiple channel 12 or so? im thinking of going from my 07 jk to a jl but i always add a couple subs and amplify my rear soundbar and add a set of speakers i can run out side of the vehicle for when we set up camp.

    • Sean Baney
      Sean Baney 11 bulan yang lalu

      normally you have on high end radios. a front left and right a rear left and right and a subwoofer left and right out put.
      and some times an rca input left and right.

    • MotorCity Mechanic
      MotorCity Mechanic  Tahun Yang lalu

      On the set up in the video we are using the stock wiring and stock radio. Check out the infotainment website to see what they have to offer for that exact vehicle. They might have something close....not to sure about 6 outputs however.

    Question here when you switch to a 5 inch to a 8.4 inch. It looks like it takes the power button and the screen off button. Is there any way to power off the radio when the car is on or is there a screen off button on the radio itself? Say your night driving and you can't turn off that bright light when you would like to.

    • MotorCity Mechanic
      MotorCity Mechanic  Tahun Yang lalu

      Just found this message. I have never responded to you as of yet so not sure what or who said "Brilliant thanks" or "watch more". None the less when it comes to this radio and the features I recommend calling or emailing infotainment.com and ask them. Its their creation and if anyone would know, they would.

      Recalls are very specific. I can be for certain days that a vehicle was build or a specific hour. Only way to know is having the VIN number. Here is a site you can go to to find out with your VIN number in hand: www.mopar.com/en-us/my-vehicle/recalls/search.html
