Customer Question

Was it factory installed?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
No
Expert:  Chad replied 3 months ago.

The 8.4 touch screen will not work correctly in a vehicle that it does not come in from the factory.

I do not know why Chrysler did this with the new touch screen radios.

I am sorry to inform you of this.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
But I got the radio from another sxt
Expert:  Chad replied 3 months ago.

I understand that. But if your VIN did not come built with that radio, it will not work correctly.

I think it sucks that Chrysler Corp did that, I really do. I use to make alot of money with radio upgrades, Because I can update the build specs in the computer

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Even if I go bring it to a dealer?
Expert:  Chad replied 3 months ago.

The last time I checked it would not work.

Can you give me your VIN, and I will see if I can update your build spec and let you know

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
The last 8 is eh325465
Expert:  Chad replied 3 months ago.

I need all 17 digits to check that

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Do you also need any information off the radio?
Expert:  Chad replied 3 months ago.

No, I just need all 17 of the VIN

Expert:  Chad replied 3 months ago.

OK, well that was interesting.

The Vehicle Option list, gave me the code to put RE2 into your build.

Now, I need you to follow this to a T!!

You will need to go to a dodge dealership's service department.

Tell them you need your Vehicle Configuration Re downloaded into your car!

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
that should fix the problem?
Customer: replied 3 months ago.
do you know how much will they charge me
Expert:  Chad replied 3 months ago.

That should fix the problem, because it is the option for a Uconnect 8.4 Radio.

Should only charge you about 1 hour labor, whatever that is in your area.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Ok I also bought a unconnect handsfree kit do you know if that would integrate
Expert:  Chad replied 3 months ago.

You should not need that.

The RE2 radio is a uconnect radio

Expert:  Chad replied 3 months ago.

ALthough, you will probably need the rear view mirror with the microphone in it

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Yeah but my car didn't have Bluetooth that's why I got it
Expert:  Chad replied 3 months ago.

What all is in the kit?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
It came with a mic a hands free button and the Bluetooth module
Expert:  Chad replied 3 months ago.

Honestily, I am not sure if that will work or not.

I am almost positive that the mic is in the mirror, and the hands free button is in the steering wheel.

Expert:  Chad replied 3 months ago.
