Have no clue what the blue was for in the old RA2, since I did not have a blue connection back at the sharkfin.
My Sharkfin antenna has just the white (for AM/FM), and a blue plug that actually has two connections. The two connections there are for the Sirius antenna and the GPS antenna. The inner part of one side of the blue plug back by the Sharkfin is yellow, so I know that feeds the XM side. My old sharkfin had two plugs, a white (AM/FM) and yellow (Sirius).
The only thing on mine that doesn't work is Uconnect as well. I had my Jeep serviced today, (after the seller of these units added the sales codes for me). I ended up with four flashes done. One I know was for a TSB for HVAC controller. Not sure what the other ones were (haven't looked them up yet). But, after the servicing, Uconnect still doesn't work, so Im sure it's a subscription issue.
One other question. You do have a Grand Cherokee right? And the radio came from a Grand Cherokee? When I was talking to Robert about this swap, he told me that only GC radios will work in GC's. You can't put, for example, an RA4 from a regular Cherkoee into a GC, or vice versa (or a Ram RA4 to anything but a Ram).
Hope it helps
Hello, i have a based 2015 GC Laredo. I installed the 8.4 and it was plug and play coming from my 5.0 screen. EVERYTHING works but the navigation. The navigation has been stuck in Texas since I installed (I live in North Carolina).
The company i purchased from said that i do not have a Antenna installed. in the Earlier post you mentioned a shark fin. I'm confident that i dont have that since nothing is special back there when i took everything apart. Where can i purchase this Shark Fin?
Thanks for the help?
