WIN module

Has anyone removed the Wireless ignition module? Looking for easiest way to get to it. Did a quick test run, really just need to access plug, but can't get access for my hand behind it.. Looking for any instructions or videos. Thanks.

REMOVAL

WARNING:To avoid serious or fatal injury on vehicles equipped with airbags, disable the Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) before attempting any steering wheel, steering column, airbag, seat belt tensioner, impact sensor or instrument panel component diagnosis or service. Disconnect and isolate the battery negative (ground) cable, then wait two minutes for the system capacitor to discharge before performing further diagnosis or service. This is the only sure way to disable the SRS. Failure to take the proper precautions could result in accidental airbag deployment.

Re: WIN module

The links refer to pics from my 2012 FSM that will not post. Sorry

Just follow the instructions, you really don't need the pics.

After you remove the instrument cluster the WIN module can be removed. It isn't serviceable, it can only be replaced, your local dealer can reflash it though.

The instructions are from a 2012 service manual on CD from Techauthority.

Re: WIN module

The reason i asked for the pictures, is because Chysler no longer makes/sells oem remotestart. I got a Fortin evo-chrt remote start, that comes with a t-harness that plugs into module. I started trying to get to it, and cant find an easy way to reach the plug. My hands are too big to fit between certain areas. i found a guide, but it is not very in depth about how to access it. Thank you
