Re: BlckWK2's JGC Altitude OEM + Build thread

Mopar Rear Backup Kit 82213884AB was received and installed. I removed the unpainted rear brow cover that came in the kit with my rear brow cover off the Altitude (black lettering). I then removed my entire rear applique and re-installed the one from the kit. Next it was to the dealership.

The system did not have the price for installation for the new kits so they used the price for a RAM rear backup camera install $120.00. Well, 5 hours later everything is wired in and it look great. Of course I have the steering control issue so I will be back to the dealership this week and have them take a look at install instruction #46 that other users have said was the culprit.

Here are a couple pics and a video of the dynamic lines when turning the steering wheel:

Re: BlckWK2's JGC Altitude OEM + Build thread

No issues. Jeep service department had to activate my rear camera and no issues came up with having the RA4. Love the HD radio for many more local stations and very crisp quality!

Hey BlackWK2. I am having a backup camera installed on my 14 Altitude next week but I'm not up to date on the install instruction 46 issue. Did a search and couldn't find it either. Would you mind educating me? Any other pointers you would offer after going through it. Finally, how's the camera working? Happy with it?

Thank you!!

First, the rear camera was a major add-on that I was very disappointed I could not get with my 14' model Altitude at the time. The camera kit was discontinued for some reason or another and I have been waiting months for it to return. Once installed it works very well and the image is crisp/clear/wide. Seeing the reverse camera on the 8.4" screen is awesome.

Now, regarding the wiring, I made a thread describing the dealer install and then what I had to do to correct the steering wheel controls issue. The video from YouTube is very detailed and I am grateful to find that persons impressive walk-thru. Basically, the Mopar instructions incorrectly state to remove the factory wire from the pin location of the harness and replace it with the camera harness wire. The correct solution is to splice into the factory wire and attach the camera harness wire to it. If the factory wire is removed like the instructions state, then the steering controls will be impeded.

Here is my write up which includes the YouTube link:

Re: BlckWK2's JGC Altitude OEM + Build thread

Thanks for all the details and quick feedback. I'm excited to get the camera installed. I too was frustrated when it wasn't an option and even more frustrated after they started offering it.

Re: BlckWK2's JGC Altitude OEM + Build thread

Hey BlckWK2 sorry to bother you but that link takes me too an unrelated thread from 2009? I tried several times. Any ideas? I am the type that has to be super educated about something before I go to a dealership so I am very anxious to see your thread and the video you referenced.

Thanks.
